Head injury claim in auto accident
I was a passenger in a auto accident where I had sustained a head injury. I hired Tim Ryan for my personal injury claim and he went to work right away. I was very happy with his services as he was able to get me the max settlement for my injuries, and he was always available when ever I had any questions regarding my claim. I definitely would recommend him to all my family and friends.

Very happy with my decision to choose Tim
Tim and everyone at his office did a great job handling my case. They were very nice from the beginning and regularly kept me informed about my case. I felt like they were "with me" throughout the process and that they really cared about my well-being. In the end I got a great result.

Amazing law office!
Tim and his team got me an amazing settlement after being in a horrible car accident. There was constant communication - I could even text the office! I could not be more pleased with the outcome. Thank you so much for everything!

Outstanding
Tim Ryan stayed on top of my case and called me frequently with updates. He’s very receptive to any ideas you may have on your case. His staff is outstanding. When they said something was going to be ready, it was ready. His office wasn’t that close to my home but he came highly recommended and I decided the distance didn’t matter. Tim Ryan is very personable and seems to be genuinely interested in your situation. I would definitely recommend his office if you’re looking for a personal injury attorney j

Great Experience. Highly Recommend.
I was referred to Tim by a long time friend of mine that said he was a great lawyer. My personal experience was that Tim and his staff are exceptional people and professionals. They not only care about getting you money, but they care about you. They even care about making sure that you know they care about you! Really great firm that got me a great result. Thanks guys.

Great law firm
Tim Ryan and his staff were very friendly. They answered every question I had thoroughly. All in all, I felt welcomed and at home. I don't have any critiques. Great experience.
Posted by Laurie | May 19, 2015
Amazing Service and Results
I could not believe how caring the staff was about how I was doing after the accident. The doctors they sent me to cared more about my health than getting me money, something that I was concerned about. I had a fantastic experience. I would not change anything about their firm.

One of the best choices I've made
Working with Tim and his office has been a life changing experience. My accident destroyed my life. Job, marriage, everything. If Tim's office was unable to get me the compensation I needed, I don't know if I would be here today. I was in a really bad place and they helped me get through it in a very professional yet personal way. I felt connected to them and I still do. They provided me with exactly what I needed when I needed it, even things that have nothing to do with my case. Hiring Tim to handle my car accident case was one of the best choices I've ever made.

not a very good experiences of working with this firm
he just wants to quick settles and not careful checks in any errors some other lawyers made can harm your case badly, he is too soft to insurance company and not doing good for your case, while not gathering all complete and sufficient information before settle the case

All Lawyers are the same ???
This guy represented me back in 04. I was working @ a hotel in Anaheim when a big fight broke out. Lets see a staff of 4 against a crowd of 50 drunk mexicans. This guy wouldnt push my case for nothing. He just wanted me to settle with workmans comp. Amazing !!! Just typical. No back bone ... He just wanted me to settle. I would never recommend this guy. I served my country in war. This person I would give to the enemy ...

BEWARE OF ATTORNEYS WHO TALK OUT OF THE SIDE OF THEIR MOUTH WITH ONE HAND IN YOUR WALLET
i WAS REAR ENDED by a truck going 65 mph in 2009 and initially handled my case myself since the other party was totally at fault,,,i paid close to $9,000 out of pocket expenses and when I turned my bills over to mercury for settlement,,they only offered $8500 total,,no pain and suffering,,i then hired Ryan to puruse the case for a year more running up $6000 more in medical from dr.s he sent me to,, In the mandatory settlement hearing on January 3, 2012, Mercury offered $11,000 wheras I asked Ryan if that was over and above my medical bills including my $9000 out of pocket,,he said yes. January 13, 2012 in his office, he showed me the settlement and it showed $4400 to him and over $6000 to the drs. he sent me to and $147 dollars for me,,when I asked what about my out of pocket expenses,,he said "I have had a rough week and about to explode",,he didnt answer then and now and I have refused to sign any check... He refuses to communicate,does not care about small cases and even kept calling me Mitch, which isnt my name. I now am going to small claims court and mabye there , I will find out why he deceived me and refuses to answer why my out of pocket expenses were not even sent to mercury for reimbursement. I am also reporting this case to the california state bar. I will keep you posted on the outcome

BEWARE
I hired Tim and it took him over 2 years to settle my clam, every time I called his office I would have to talk to everyone in the office first before getting a hold of him, then when I got a hold of him he had no idea about my case. Finally we settled and he took most of the money
