Open and insightful
Ms. Li took time to listen my needs, and gave open and insightful advices. Although Ms. Li could not take the case, the conversation also helped me.

Helpful, though I didn't retain her services
I reached out to Teresa for legal help. She was honest in telling me that she was not the best person to help me and passed me off to someone who could help me better. Prompt reply and courteous. Thank you.

Client
Ms. Li represented our neighborhood in a San Francisco land use case. Her insights and arguments were excellent. She was very professional and understanding given the various opinions within the group she represented.

Knowledgable and Skilled
Teresa spent a lot of time investigating my case and determining the right course of action to take. She is prompt to return calls. She explains things in laymen's terms. She had been recommended to me by one of her peers as someone you could count on if your case went to trial, and although we decided not to go through with my case, I can tell just by working with her, she's definitely the attorney you want on your side. I will definitely recommend her to others.

If you have an insurance claim you need an attorney.
Teresa Li is an excellent advocate. If you have a claim with AllState (or likely anyone else) you'll need to be represented and Teresa Li is the attorney you need. Teresa is knowledgeable, smart, and tenacious. In the end, Teresa obtained 30% more for me than the insurance adjuster had offered including an unexpectedly large reduction in MedPay. Highly recommended!

Helpful and personalized
I consulted with Teresa on my auto accident, where another driver had cut me off on the Bay Bridge toll approach. I found her extremely knowledgeable and helpful in digging into the facts and helping me understand the value of the case. Ultimately I determined that my case wasn't worth pursuing, but I appreciate that I had the info needed to make that decision.
