You want Sabrina Stuart in your corner
My fiance was injured at work, the insurance company delayed payment and we were scared, frustrated and flat out felt helpless. I didn't even know if a lawyer could help with our situation. Feeling like we had no other options, I started reading reviews on several sites. There was so much positive feedback on Sabrina we decided to give her a call. She responded quickly and immediately set up a free consultation. When we sat down during the consultation I was nearly in tears, by the end of it we both felt so much better knowing we would have Sabrina in our corner. She took care of absolutely everything. I cannot express how much weight she removed from our shoulders. She was kind, professional, responsive and you can feel that she genuinely cares. She guided us through the entire process and resolved our case quickly with a very fair outcome. I would recommend Sabrina without hesitation and if we were to ever find ourselves in need of a lawyer again she would be our first call.

She will fight for you!
Ms. Sabrina is awesome. I truly appreciate her help. After I made countless of failed attempts to try and get the right medical care from my workers comp, I decided to reach out to Ms. Sabrina and she was able to get me the right care within 2 business days. She is always fast to respond to any of you’re concerns and she is a fighter, believe me she will do whatever is best for you, I put my trust in her and she was able to deliver. Thank you Ms. Sabrina!

Would absolutely recommend Sabrina for anyone having trouble with their Worker's Comp Case
I was injured at work, and put into a really awful situation by people who were not shy about breaking laws and acting unethically to retaliate against me for filing a worker's comp claim. To say I was freaked out was an understatement, but meeting with Sabrina immediately put me at ease. She made sure my questions and concerns were addressed at every step of the process, and that I was able to obtain medical care and money to keep the bills paid as soon as possible. She fought for me, and obtained a resolution to the case that enabled me to get my life back. I honestly do not know where I would be without her, and would recommend that anyone who finds themselves in the position I did give her a call immediately.

Sabrina is everything you can ask for...
I was injured at work in November 2015, and my employer did everything to make sure I didn't get workers comp. Sabrina met with me so I can explain my situation, she took my case, provided valuable and timely correspondence. A week later all of a sudden I was getting medical help and bi-weekly payments. Sadly, my case lead to permanent issues, Sabrina went back and forth for months making sure I received a fair settlement. I couldn't have asked for anything more, she is not only an amazing attorney but also was a great support through the tough time. Save your time and go with the best.

Workers Comp/Personal injury
I had a very complicated case as I was rear ended while working and there was too much gray area for me to navigate solo. Prior to retaining counsel I consulted with several attorneys, none of which were capable of handling BOTH sides of the coin. I found that the attorneys were experienced in WC or PI, not both. Sabrina exceeded my expectations, fought for the medical care that I needed, and was incredibly thorough in following up with all parties involved. I HIGHLY recommend Sabrina if you have a workers comp or personal injury claim.

I’m a person not a number
The Herrera Law firm made feel like a person not a number. Ms. Stuart was informative and explained everything dealing with my case. Even during the closure of courts, because of covid 19, Ms. Stuart and her assistant Angie kept me updated. The most important customer service detail I truly appreciated was the quick response from my emails and/or phone calls.

Ethical and knowledgeable
Esq Sabrina Stuart is a highly ethical and a very reliable, knowledgeable attorney. She is articulate and able to break down the legalese to terms that anyone can understand, without oversimplification. At no time did I feel pressured to follow any course of action with respect to my claim. Ms. Stuart presented the law pertaining to the facts, and listened to my side of the story without prompting, even when preparing me for depositions or attending medical appointments. I always felt reassured that Herrera law firm was interested in a just outcome. My attorney provided the counsel I needed to reach a decision that was my own, based on my best interests, and not coerced or mercenary. I am extremely satisfied with the resolution of my WC claim and I enthusiastically, unreservedly recommend Sabrina Ann Stuart, Esq.

Worker's Comp Case
Sabrina was wonderful to work with. She made me feel safe in her advice and she clearly had my best interest at heart. I explained my situation, she took my case, provided valuable and timely correspondence. We worked entirely remotely and it was seamless. A friend recommended her and I am happy they did. My case was resolved with an outcome I can move on with.

Sabrina Stuart wins! She's the BEST!!
After many sucessful years at my job, I became a target of discrimination, harassment and retaliation which resulted in my employer firing me and denying my claim for workmans' comp/ non-industrial disability. After Sabrina quickly assessed my situation, she negotiated a settlement and not only forced my employer to settle but she helped me get my job back. Since I work for a large, wealthy government agency, I never would have imagined to get such results without a long drawn out fight. I have been made whole and vindicated. My new job with the same employer now has wonderful working conditions. Sabrina is as sharp as they come and sees directly to the truth. She fights all the way and gets results!!! I am and always will be very grateful for all that she has done for me.

A great lawyer to have for personal injury case
When I got injured and was looking for a lawyer to help me, it took me a while to find one. One day while searching on this site I found her profile and clicked it and read about her. I decided to call her office and it was the best decision I made. When I met her and I told her how my pharmacy wrote my seizure medication prescription wrong and because of that I ended up having a seizure when I walked my nephew to school that morning. All in all she helped me win my case.

Professional and experienced
I found Sabrina Stuart and team to be very professional and efficient. She settled my workers comp. case within three months and doubled the amount they were offering.

Insurance Malpractice
When my insurance company failed to show up in court with legal representation for me, I was automatically in default and I lost the case. Sabrina was able to verify and show that my insurance company was at fault, due to negligence, and I was no longer obligated to pay out from the previous court ruling, they were. The whole situation was a bad dream and due to Sabrina's diligence, it was over before I knew it. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a thorough attorney to represent them, a friend or a loved one. I have the upmost faith in her and owe her many thanks!

Thank you Mrs. Stuart!!! CC
