The Absolute Best Team - EVER
Erin Beranek from the Ledger Law Group handled my case and was EXTREMELY helpful. Both she and Emery Brett Ledger were very quick communicating with me - even if it was just to let me know the status of my case - and even when there wasn't much to report but, bless their hearts, I TRULY won't go anyplace else if ever need another accident attorney again. Both Erin and Emery are absolutely fabulous. Always quick to respond - no matter the issue. Ledger Law - I LOVE you guys and again, THANK YOU for all your hard work!!

Ledger Law Shines!
David Mann with Ledger Law did a fantastic job organizing my case. David and his staff were extremely courteous, helpful, caring and knowledgeable while working through my case. They answered calls and questions promptly, pursued areas that needed more information, listened, and genuinely were a pleasure to work with. Five star rating without a doubt! I highly recommend this firm! JW

Eased the anxiety!
My experience with the Ledger Law Firm was gratifying. Not because we prevailed, but because the service was impeccable. I was apprehensive as to who to choose to help me. Once I had my first interview with Ledger, I felt at ease, they informed me of EVERY step and development in my case. They offered me all options to help me make informed decisions. The anxiety surrounding my accident and what to do next was eliminated through my experience with the Ledger Law Firm. Everyone responded to my questions, and if they did not have the answer they found and returned a call expeditiously. Thank you Ledger for your compassion and service.

Friendly, attentive, great service and knowledgeable!
I wanted to let you know that Dixon Wiles was excellent in his communication and we praise him for his knowledge and friendliness. I have tried to talk to a number of lawyers and none compared to Mr. Wiles. I would highly recommend him as a lawyer. My experience with other lawyers was unimpressive, but Dixon Wiles went above and beyond our expectations with our brief phone conversation. We wanted to make sure he is recognized for this as we were quite impressed with him. Sincerely Lisa and Craig Reinsch

Trusting the Ledger Law Firm was the best decision
I got in a terrible accident and needed a lawyer, but i had never done this before. I called a few places but none really stuck out until I met with Matthew Kovach. He made me feel in the loop through the whole process through consistent communication. Trusting in this firm and attorneys was the best decision I have ever made. I am extremely happy with how the case closed. I couldn’t thank you guys enough. 10/10.

Consumer
I have lived in SO CAL all my life. No car accidents 45 years. I purchased a new car Nov 2919. Three months later I'm rear ended guy did not stop at 60mph. Three weeks later I'm on different fwy I'm stopped in Traffic. Young man fell asleep at The wheel I was hit even harder. I had many injuries. I'm Fortunate I was not killed. I contacted Ledger Law Firm. The kindest guy Matt took it from there. I was matched with a great Lawyer and Case MGR. They did a wonderful job in this Pain Staking process. They handled the Insurance Dragons and let me rest. I highly Recommend Ledger they are by far the best in the Industry.

Best lawyer ever
I was involved in a car accident in March of 2020 and I was hurt and didn’t know what to do so I was referred to the Ledger Law Firm for help. I called the law firm and right away I was greeted and knew I was in good hands they were very friendly from the start and answered all questions I ever had for them. I then started the process with them from doctors to chiropractor treatment they did all the hands on work got me into the chiropractor right away and the best part was they would call me once a week to check up on me and my status of how i was doing. I can’t tell you how appreciative I am and how much I would recommend this Law Firm to all my friends, family, and co workers that’s how amazing my experience was. Thank you Ledger Law Firm and to the team that helped me through the process.

Satisfied injured
I was involved in a rear-end accident approximately 1 year ago. I went through a severe period which involved severe pain. One of Mr. Ledger's assistant Sabrina was so understanding during my whole length of my case. I didn't have to go through multiple staff members, that is hugh for me because it makes it more personal. I highly recommend this office. Thank you Ledger Law Firm.
