I have a “soft tissue” injury case from a car accident 3.5 years ago. Unfortunately, my case ended up going to trial.
I originally hired Lawrence Lallande, who was unavailable to represent me due to vacation plans he did not want to change, so he hired Minh Nguyen to represent my case at trial, assisted by Karina Lallande (Lawrence’s daughter, Lallande Law).
The total award/judgment was $300,452.
I received 8% of the total award.
Lallande Law and Law offices of Minh T. Nguyen spent over $178k on my case, (including an 11k hotel bill at a “boutique hotel”).
Their profit was over $97k (4 times as much as I received--not including the exorbitant amount they spent on trial costs, hotels, and dinners).
The Honorable Judge Thomas W. Wills made the following statement during trial:
“I have not seen behavior like the repeated transgressions of the Plaintiff’s counsel in this case in nearly 40 years in this business.”
Overall, in addition to the terrible financial outcome in my case (I didn’t even come close to recouping my lost wages from time off work for medical treatment), I did not have a good experience, or feel secure with either Minh or Karina. I never knew what to expect and felt severely under-communicated with. Prior to going on the stand for hours over 2 days, I had received hardly any instruction or prep from my attorneys.
Overall, I did not have a good experience. I trusted that they knew what they were doing—assuming that if we won, the proverbial "proof would be in the pudding.” As it turned out, the pudding was rancid—despite “winning” the trial. I would STRONGLY recommend to avoid both Minh Nguyen Law and Lallande Law.

I am very appreciative for the hard work that Karina from Lallande Law put into my case. She or a member of Lallande Law would keep me regularly updated with regards to my case. I always had my calls answered, or promptly returned if she was unavailable. I had a very positive experience and I HIGHLY recommend Lallande Law.
