Jeff Dawson
Jeff Dawson was hired by me for a very difficult personal injury case. Within a few months he organized my case obtained files and referred me to the appropriate doctors. What a contrast from the previous attorney. I really had a chance to see the difference between a professional well organized attorney and one who does as little as possible. Jeff really went "the extra mile" through mediation and later arbitration. I appreciated the time and energy he put into my case and I will be forever grateful to him.

Best attorney ever!!!
In 2009 I was in a serious car accident where an uninsured drunk driver doing 85mph hit the car I was driving from behind as I was at a stand still on the 5 fwy. It was a nasty wreak. After getting out of the hospital I was lucky enough to have someone refer Mr. Dawson to me. He met with me immediately and treated me like my case was his number 1 priority. He was very straight with me about what to expect with the process. The insurance on the car I was driving was less than great, only had minimal coverage and like I stated the other driver was uninsured so it was going to be a fight. After all the medical treatment I received over the months to come it totalled out to around $38,000 and the policy only covered $30,000. That doesn't even count for the cost of the car and what Jeff Dawson's legal fee's would be. Jeff and his entire staff stayed in contact with me throughout the claim. It I had a question it either got answered right away or at most within 24 hours. They were all on top of their A game! When the case got settled I was worried about getting everything payed because it was way over the policy limits but Jeff said he would work with the doctors and insurance to get it handled. In the end, all my medical and the car got paid. I even got a call to swing by his office to pick up a check. I still have no clue how he did it but he had a check for $11,000 for me. He had explained in the beginning that if I would have set up my insurance differently, he would have been able to get me a lot more. Jeff is one of the brightess persons that I have met. He genuinely cares about your case and how your handling the situation you've been thrust into. He surrounds himself with the smartest people, great doctor referrals and made a horrible situation a lot less stressful. I have absolutely the utmost admiration for Jeff and the staff he employs. I have recommended him to family and friends. I can't give this guy enough credit, simply an amazing attorney and genuine person. Thanks Jeff Dawson!!!

We are so glad we were able to reach a fair settlement for you. It is true that if you had structured your policy to include uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, you would have been able to receive a higher settlement. Be sure to make that change so that if you are in that situation again, you will be fully covered.

Sideswiped on the 405
I was in a horrible accident on the 405 in Southern California. I hired the Law Office of Jeff Dawson to represent me. He has been incredibly diligent in getting me to the right Doctors for the treatments required. I feel my rights are protected and he will pursue a settlement that will cover my bills, loss of job, and pain and suffering. I would recommend him to anyone.

Your case is interesting. Most people don't know the importance of having Uninsured Motorist bodily injury and property damage limits set to at least $250,000. The truck that hit you only had $15,000 of bodily injury liability. That hardly covered the emergency room, let alone the treatment that you needed. Glad we could be of help!
