The Best In The Valley!
Upon my first consult I was greeted with a warm smile, firm handshake, listening ear and a tone that made me confident / comfortable in my choice to move forward with a law suit after a automobile accident. Mr. Regar and staff are professional, courteous and caring. I am glad to have met and had in my corner after having my life turned upside down. Barry and his team were quick to respond to all my questions and concerns Sunday-Saturday. I would highly recommend Mr. Regar and his staff to anyone needing a no nonsense, straight to the point lawyer. Thanks Barry, my family and I are grateful for you, your great work ethic, honesty and for seeing us through to the end. I appreciated having you by my side through it all.

Far exceeded my expectations
I was in a terrible car accident in August 2020. Mr. Regar and his team far exceeded my expectation in terms of dealing with every single detail of my situation. He is dogged in his pursuit of what is fair for his clients and is personally with you every step of the way. I cannot thank him and his team enough for how hard they worked on my behalf.

The experience and knowledge you want
I thought this process would be straight forward. I knew what happened, who was at fault, and the injury I had incurred. But the insurance company’s lawyers questioned every aspect of the case and tried to put an opportunists spin on it. In their eyes every victim is trying to win the “Personal Injury Lottery.” Facts and medical results were suspect, and they did their best to make me question my very own personal value. Past earnings, age, and physical ability were all held against me. They play hardball. That is exactly why you need Mr. Regar. His 40+ years of experience is the key. Having seen it before, he can deal with it now. He could analyze the facts and see the holes in the defendant’s story. Of course things never go as well as you had hoped. One can always wish for the Moon but most cases settle. I only wanted my future income restored. Mr. Regar knew how to weigh the offer versus the risk of failure if we had moved forward to trial. It takes experience to know when to say stop while you’re ahead. Mr. Regar has that.

Amazing / 12 STARS
Mr.Regar recently represented me in a bad slip & fall & I found him to be very professional, extremely knowledgeable & a real strong negotiator when we were settling. It was a traumatic accident for me & Barry & his staff walked me through every step of the way, explained everything & were very prompt returning any calls, etc. Barry was excellent, along with his Paralegal, Rebecca & his Receptionist Yessica. I would highly recommend them to anyone as they had a lot of compassion along with great professionalism! 12 Stars for all of you & many Thanks!

Great to have in your corner
I had a bad slip and fall accident in March 2019. Fortunately for me, I picked Mr. Regar as my lawyer. It cannot be easy for him to represent a Client from afar. I am Canadian living in British Columbia. Mr. Regar stayed in contact throughout the process and led us through this experience step by step. He is fair, patient and knowledgeable of not only California law but the differences in our systems. Even through these trying times, he stayed the course, getting us a fair and reasonable settlement. If you want a lawyer who is honest, straightforward and in your corner, call Mr. Regar and hand the case to him

One of the best
Mr. Regar was very honest and respectful in considering my injury complaint. He advised me to wait for awhile before proceeding with a suit and told what to do. However, with a previous injury he handled the suit expeditiously negotiating with the involved parties to provide me with a satisfactory solution and compensation. He is always diligent and professional.

Absolutely Recommend
My full confidence is in Barry Regar. He is proactive, tough, and gets things done. We were up against a very difficult insurance company and Barry got us the max payout. I wouldn't think to look elsewhere, and neither should you.

Barry Regar - Brilliant and Results-oriented
I contacted several attorneys after a personal injury, caused by medical personnel, who were unwilling to take my case. Basically it was about not being able to make enough money. I was relieved to find Barry Regar willing and able to take on my medical malpractice case. Because of the subsequent surgeries that followed our first meeting, I was impressed with his ongoing communications and timely updates. He earned and kept my trust throughout the entire legal proceedings and I felt that he always held my best interests first. I would highly recommend Barry Regar to anyone looking for a no-nonsense attorney with great integrity, knowledge and the absolute ability to get the job done right!

Experienced, Skillful and Tough Negotiator
I normally do not write reviews. However, my experience with Mr. Regar was so superior that I am compelled to do so. I was involved in a serious auto accident and as a result of the accident, I suffered a very painful back injury. The physical evidence and the other drivers admission of guilt left no doubt that I was fault-free in the accident. The challenge was getting proper indemnity from the insurance companies. To complicate matters, there were three separate insurance policies associated with the accident. In addition, the vehicle damage did not reflect the seriousness of the impact. I was driving a SUV, which sits higher than a typical car, and the other party was driving a low profile import vehicle. Much of the impact went underneath my vehicle. To complicate matters even worse I had suffered an injury to my back a few months before the accident, I knew there was no way I could get a satisfactory settlement from the insurance companies without professional help. I researched attorneys on the internet and fortunately discovered Barry Regar. Mr. Regar reviewed my medical documents and the physical evidence. There was no question I was injured from the accident but getting the insurance companies to pay was another matter. Barry got to work right away and ordered all my medical and insurance records and information. I was impressed how well he understood the medical procedures and prescriptions that were prescribed for me. Armed with my information, Mr. Regar contacted the insurance companies and started the long arduous task of negotiating with them. Barry is a very experienced, skillful and tough negotiator. One by one the insurance companies realized they were up against a serious opponent and did not want to take my case to trial. In the end, all three insurance policies paid! In my opinion, most attorneys, would not have been able to achieve a similar result. If you are injured and need an attorney I strongly encourage you to contact Barry Regar. ~

I am happy with the results
I went to Mr Regar after I had foolishly thought I might be able to handle what seemed to be a straight forward case of my being hit by a car. Consulting with Barry was a good move as he explained my options and what he would do to handle the case. He played hardball with the other side and we were ready to go to court. A fair settlement was then offered and upon his advise I took it.
