Juan Armenta is a talented, aggressive Workers' Compensation applicant's attorney
I am a casualty insurance executive who has had the opportunity to know attorney Armenta in both the defense of workers' compensation cases and as a trusted advisor in matters of insurance and employement law. Mr. Armenta is a talented and skillful workers' compensation attorney, whom I would highly recommend to those seeking aggressive, professional representation in California workers' compensation matters.

Excellent, professional, high integrity attorney & assistant. Highly recommended A++
Juan Armenta is an attorney that fully understands the clients rights and will be an advocate for them until the very end if necessary. My case was by no means considered high profile, but after first talking with Juan I was convinced I had a legitimate case, so decided to move forward with him on a contingency basis. If we lose we both we lose and I would not be charged any attorney fees; If we win the other party is responsible for all attorney fees. This I found to be unusual, as most attorneys do not wish to take the time unless they can win the lottery, so to speak. This level of integrity is compelling, something his clients will be grateful for. His assistant was also most helpful and courteous when he was not available. Juan Armenta is not one to mince words--he will tell you exactly how the process works and reasonably how long it will take--very professional. His vast experience deposing witnesses ultimately made the difference. In the end, we prevailed with our case and I must say sooner than perhaps expected. What was truly remarkable; I never actually met Mr. Armenta before, during or after the case was settled--all communication was done by phone or email. Someday I hope to meet Juan in person so I can look him straight in the eye and say "Thank you"!

Awesome experience in tough times
Juan and his well adapted team are as professional as they are patient in every step of the way. He very effectively went to bat for me and, knocked it out of the park. I highly recommend Juan and team of English Lloyd & Armenta.

Super Lawyer!
I had a complicated employment case and Juan had it resolved in record time as I could have been dragged out by up to 2 years. Juan and his firm had it settled within a couple of months. He is knowledgeable and even answered my emails after hours. If you need a law firm I can’t recommend a better one English Lloyd and Armenta!

Happy and Satisfied Customer
After consulting a couple other attorneys and them refusing to accept my case, I contacted Mr. Juan Armenta who did accept my case. I heard about Mr. Armenta at the doctor’s office from a current client of his and spoke very highly of him and Gloria. I decided to contact Mr. Armenta because as everyone knows, workers comp is not the easiest to deal with. It takes time to receive approval for doctors, treatments and medication. It took workers comp four months to send me to see the specialist and workers comp often denied my medication. Once Mr. Armenta was representing me, things moved a lot quickly and smoothly. Also, Gloria, who is amazing and was always there for me, would take her time to talk to me and explain what was going on with my case. She also took care of setting up my acupuncture and physical therapy appointments (twice). She always knew what to tell me and calm me down when I felt nervous and stressed about my case. Mr. Armenta and Gloria guided me and explained things throughout the process and made me feel confident about my case. My experience with Mr. Armenta, Gloria and Nina was positive and a very good one, I would hire his office again if necessary.

Excellent experience with Mr. Armenta!
I found Mr. Armenta online and chose him based on his excellent reviews and I’m so happy I did. When I initially emailed my issues to his office, I felt maybe I had a small chance of him accepting my case but fortunately, he agreed to take my case. I finally felt like someone was really listening to me, made me feel like I wasn’t crazy and really seemed to care about my welfare. He was very detailed about the process and advised me of approximately how long this could take and really made me feel at ease in talking to him, almost like a family member or friend, but at the same time was professional. I was regularly updated on the progress of my case, which told me how much work he was putting into this. His paralegal Gloria, was incredible as well and promptly answered any questions I had. I can’t even express how appreciative and thankful I am to have had such an amazing experience with him and Gloria, they make a great team. This was the best decision I’ve ever made in selecting an attorney and am grateful for the successful outcome. Thank you!!

Juan not only knows every aspect of the law, he knows all the right specialists and consultants to give the supporting documentation you must have to receive the maximum award. His effective skills in presenting and negotiating a case is unsurpassed. My great thanks and admiration for getting me a comprisal from the stringy insurance company, that with a less experienced lawyer I would never have got. 10 out of 10 for Juan.

Workers Comp
At my first meeting, Mr Armenta explained the whole process of what was going to happen with my case, and most importantly, to be patient. I heard from Gloria often with case updates, and amazingly to both Mr Armenta and me, the case was settled much quicker and with a much higher settlement than we both thought possible.

Review
Juan Armenta and his team, especially Gloria Fernandez guided me through the process of workman’s comp. This was an area that I was unfamiliar with and they explained the process and possibilities of various outcomes to me all along the way. This is not to say there were no frustrations or responsibilities on the part of the client. It is up to you to follow your case and keep the law firm apprised and reminded of what has recently transpired. It is a very long and complicated process and I’m grateful to have found a firm that helped me to navigate those muddy waters.

Worker's Compensation
Good evening to everyone here. This is the first review that I’ve ever done in my life. I can honestly say that I am not a robot of any sort. I came to Mr. Armenta for help with my Workers Comp. case at the time which was a mess. My first lawyer’s office was a disaster. When I came to Mr. Armenta I had little to no hope. I took a leap of faith in Mr. Armenta to do everything in his power to fight for what I needed and was best for my well-being. The staff especially Mrs. Fernandez was great with the welcoming, the consults, concerns and the updates. Anytime I had concerns or questions Mr. Arment’s office was quick to respond. They are all honest and sincere from the beginning. My case was tough and extremely stressful but they made everything go smoothly. I trusted Mr. Armenta’s judgement and he made it possible to win my case with the greatest outcome. I thank god for people who do reviews because with out honesty people would really waste valuable time. May my review serve as testimony and hope this helps your decision.

Recommendation for Mr. Armenta
If you’ve been injured at work and are looking for a lawyer to navigate the Work Comp bureaucracy, Mr. Juan Armenta is my lawyer of choice. It has been my experience that he is a top-notch negotiator, an advocate for the injured party and has at least 20 years working in the Work Comp arena. Mr. Armenta is supported by a superb administrative staff, Ms. Gloria and Ms. Nina. They are very responsive to the client’s needs and questions. Following up with the client that same day or next, when possible. Being in the Work Comp System is a nightmare, somehow Mr. Armenta and his staff make it easier. I highly recommend Mr. Juan Armenta for any Work Comp issues. He is a person you can count on. Cathi N, a satisfied former client.

I was happy about my decision
Mr. Armenta and staff were very professional and helpful. They kept me abreast of the status of my case and answered any questions that I had. Emails & call were returned with in a timely manner. I really valued the rapport that I had with Mr. Armenta & staff. I had two previous attorneys who weren’t concerned or helpful at all. I was so relieved after Mr. Amenta decided to take on my case. I had lots of anxiety about searching for a new attorney that would actually represent my case to their fullest potential. Mr. Armenta reassured me that he would fight for me & that I had nothing to worry about. He advised me to focus on school & bettering myself & to let him handle the legal part. Mr. Armenta settled my case & I was very pleased with my settlement. English & Lloyd is a great firm, I’ve referred family members to this amazing firm already & I’m so happy I chose this firm to represent me.
