A Satisfied Client
I was 100% satisfied with my experience. Two of the most notable attributes Shelly offered was the timeliness of information and attention she offered to me as a client. Not once in the process did I feel “out of the loop” or felt that I lacked detail with my case. Emails and phone calls were answered promptly and I always felt she had my best interest in mind throughout the process. Shelly will be my first and only recommendation to my associates who require legal assistance.

Outstanding Representation
I received outstanding professional representation from Shelly at all times as she guided me through all the steps in a difficult case (auto accident personal injury: tinnitus). Supportive actions she took included accompanying me to medical and other appointments required by opposing counsel no matter where scheduled. Further, Shelly was always available to thoroughly and promptly answer all of my questions and concerns by phone, and/or in writing. Taken together, all of her actions along with her personable manner gave me the necessary confidence and trust I relied on to go through a most difficult time and process that with her skilled guidance resolved satisfactorily in my favor. I highly recommend Shelly and her firm, Torklaw, to all who need excellent representation in general, and, as in my case, that provides a true understanding of a tinnitus injury.

Above & Beyond
I was so unsure about how working with an attorney for a car accident would be but Shelly and her team went above and beyond my expectations! I had no idea how to handle my situation but Shelly made sure I was taken care of and given multiple options to handle my injuries based on what I was comfortable with and fought for me to settle my case in a fair and empowering way. I’m grateful for her and her team guiding me through this process.

Professional
Shelly was very professional in handling my auto injury case. She is very knowledgeable in her field and I felt reassured that my case was being handled appropriately. Shelly had good communication with me and that made the case flow smoothly. Overall I was happy with the results and would not hesitate to recommend her.

Exceptional attorney that truly cares about you as an individual
I was involved in a very bad car accident and had to be hospitalized for several weeks after because of how serious my injuries were. While I was in the hospital my wife researched several personal injury firms and we consulted with a few different attorneys about my accident before hiring Shelly. When we contacted Shelly initially to discuss my case, we were able to reach her directly right away without having to go through several layers of talking to various non-attorney personnel before even being able to speak to an attorney which is what we had experienced with the other firms we contacted. Shelly clearly explained the process to us and was very knowledgeable, understanding, and took the time to answer all of our questions in detail. She was also extremely warm and caring and made me feel comfortable and at ease with hiring her to represent me. Throughout the course of my case, Shelly was very communicative and kept me informed the entire time. I was always able to reach her directly if I had any questions on weekends and evenings. She would always respond to my emails, texts, and calls almost immediately. Shelly fought for me and worked hard to reach a settlement that I was extremely happy with. Even after I had agreed to the settlement, she continued to fight for me to ensure that I received the maximum amount possible from the settlement and not only ensured that all of my medical bills were paid from the settlement, but she and her team also negotiated reductions on the amounts that I owed on my medical bills to increase the amount that I would directly receive in my pocket from the settlement. Shelly went above and beyond for me, and I am truly grateful to her. She is an exceptionable attorney that is knowledgeable, compassionate, and communicative. I would highly recommend Shelly to anyone that has been injured in an accident.

Knowledgeable and Honest
Shelly was straightforward and coherent with her advice. Honesty goes a long and and she provided just that. She has a great amount of knowledge on car accidents, injury and dealing with those seemingly unbeatable insurance companies. Highly reccomend.

Very high quality
I had a complex case that took over two years to close due to my long lasting care I needed. Shelly was extremely supportive and informative during the whole process. She was easy to contact and always answered my concerns promptly. She talked me through each step in the process and constantly made me feel confident in choosing torklaw. Even through the pandemic she was patient with me and understanding of my chaotic schedule. I would recommend to any of my friends and family.

Outstanding Attorney
I would highly recommend Shelly Raiszadeh as a personal injury attorney. I hired her to represent me when I was injured in a motorcycle accident. She always responded to me in a timely manner when I had questions and always kept me informed throughout the entire process. Not only is Ms. Raiszadeh a great attorney, she is also a great person and who genuinely cares about her clients. She worked extremely hard to ensure that I received the best possible outcome from the settlement.

Absolutely GREAT layer!!
It was an ABSOLUTELY the best choice that I made for Shelly and Torklaw to represent me in my personal injury lawsuit. Shelly was always a phone call or email away.

Shelly Is not just like any other lawyer. She is very competent and dedicated in her job ,but she also made me feel that I mattered to her personally and that I was not just another client. This is a wonderful balance to strike and I admire her efficiency while still maintaining a personal touch.7

Our Lawyer Shelly
I hired Shelly to represent us in our wrongful death case. She was patient and professional. Shelly's personal care and empathy during this time of pain was invaluable. Shelly kept us informed on every aspect of our case. She was extremely kind with my 88 year old mother and made her feel at ease during this difficult time. Shelly was instrumental in bringing our case to a satisfactory conclusion via mediation. This was most important since it lessen the impact that a trial would have had on my mother.

Shelly is amazing!
I hired Shelly for two personal injury cases. Her understanding of personal injury law is impressive. She took care of everything, including making sure I got the best treatment for my injuries. Shelly was always available to address any questions or concerns I had throughout the process. Most importantly, Shelly fought for me and successfully settled both cases satisfactorily. I’d absolutely recommend and use her services again if needed.

TORK LAW gets 5-stars… Ask for Shabnam SHELLY Raiszadeh: Shelley provided Excellent Services – Very Prepared, Knowledgeable, Professional and most of all Truthful… Every rock was unturned – she was on top of every detail. She negotiated 3-times more than I expected. The Entire Experience was Wonderful… The staff at TORKLAW- was so friendly and make you feel like family. Even though Shelley is very loving and kind, she is EXTREMELY TOUGH when needed. I would highly recommend Shelley and TORKLAW to others. I am retired CHP and I have already put the word out: Contact TORKLAW because They Get The Job Done…
