Greg came through..
My family and I were in an extremely difficult and stressful situation with our landlord which involved our children. Difficult to the point where we had exhausted all options. Luckily, we happened to call Greg Brod first for consultation and ended up hiring him. Greg completely related to our situation and proved to be a great lawyer and a great guy. He went full on for us and we are more than happy with the outcome of our case. He's the best because he believes in what he does. Call him before you call anyone else.

Need a lawyer? Greg Brod is your guy...
Recently I had the need to hire an attorney. My daughter introduced me to her lawyer, Greg Brod of the Brod Law Firm on Jessie St. in San Francisco. I am somewhat intimidated by lawyers, however when I met Greg I was immediately at ease. He was compassionate, knowledgeable and extremely easy to talk to. He handled my case professionally and most successfully. I couldn't be happier with the outcome, I would refer anyone to him. Way to go Greg, you are a true professional. Annette P.

Greg Brod Law Firm
Our family had a problem with bedbugs in our apartment and a landlord who was blaming us and trying to get us to pay for the exterminators. It is difficult for anyone who has not had bedbugs to imagine the extent to which this problem negatively effects every aspect of your life. I contacted Greg Brod, and he was there for us. He listened to our problems and advised us on the legal issues, thereby saving us thousands of dollars. In addition, we were compensated for our damages, which were substantial. I would recommend Greg wholeheartedly. He and the members of his staff are caring professionals. Having this behind us is such a relief. Thank you all at the Brod Law Firm.

Fantastic Outcome - Incredible Lawyer
We lived under the thumb of a frightening landlord - it was an unbearable situation and I'm thankful that it's behind us now. Greg not only got us the outcome we wanted, but he accomplished it while taking away much of the stress that accompanies a lawsuit. While my husband was pleased with Greg's determination to fight for us, I was put at ease with Greg's ability to do this while taking my fragile emotional state into account. We worked closely with Greg throughout the entirety of our case and I wouldn't hesitate to call on him again, for any reason.

Trustworthy, skilled, fiercely determined.
We were involved in a traumatic landlord situation and weren't sure where to turn for help. After we were literally forced to flee the rental property in fear, a trusted attorney friend recommended Greg Brod. When I looked at Greg's website and saw that he was a personal injury lawyer, I questioned how he could adequately help us with a landlord problem. But it became clear in our first meeting that he was our guy. Greg was extremely knowledgeable in and could clearly explain how the California and San Francisco rent ordinances (and associated case law) pertained to our case. But more importantly it was immediately evident that he was a trustworthy guy who truly cared about us and what we had gone through (unlike other lawyers I had contacted who talked fees first, possible action later). Greg handled our case with a laser-focused determination to right the wrongs we had been forced to endure. Greg worked his ass off for well over a year, skillfully fighting for everything we were due in compensation and leading us to a fair settlement. Throughout the entire process, we were in constant communication, with Greg always putting our needs first and deferring to our wishes. Though we'll never get back those six months of hell living under the filth-encrusted boot of a scumlord bully, we won a happy outcome--and a good friend. We would highly recommend your talking to him if you've been hurt in any regard, even if you think your case does not fall under the purview of a personal injury attorney.

Great Attorney
I shared office space with Greg for approximately four years. During that period I had an opportunity to see Greg in action. He is a fine attorney, diligent, hard working, knowledgeable, and very willing to reach out for information and ideas on any number of issues. At various times he and I would discuss our cases, sharing our thoughts and themes with one another in order to accrue as much knowledge and information for our clients. I would not hesitate to retain Greg as my counsel.

A Lawyer You Want in Your Corner
Greg did a great job in getting a settlement in my personal injury case as a settlement wasn't looking good early on in the process. Greg has great communication skills. He kept things simple and contacted me only when it was important. Going through the legal system can be very stressful, but Greg was calm and reassuring. We worked together as a team to go over every bit of information, and he used it to formulate a clear cut case in terms of why the other party was at fault. I feel that it was Greg's legal skills that greatly influenced the settlement of my case.

Win against insurance company
Mr. Brod stood up for my rights when my own insurance company tried to avoid paying me even though I paid for my policy. Greg is smart, experienced and though. He was patient with me and aggressive with the opposing lawyers. We got almost everything that I deserved because he refused to take "no" for an answer and was committed to fighting my case. If you're lucky enough to get an appointment, go see him. You have nothing to lose and you’ll be one step closer to getting what you deserve! Greg has helped me on other stuff too and I’ve already referred him to my own friends.

The Lawyer Who You Absolutely Want to Represent You
Greg Brod represented me in a difficult case where an insurance company refused to fully pay a claim. He recovered TWICE as much as I expected to get and simply ate the insurance company alive. I doubt the insurance company's lawyer could ever try another case after Greg finished with him. Greg is very hard working and never stops working torward winning. He is very smart and easy to work with. I cannot imagine a better attorney.

Outstanding Ethics, Skills, Effort and Results!
Greg Brod represented me and my small business for over ten years on a variety of business litigation issues ranging thru several States and court venues and against large and small corporations and entities. . A lawyer's lawyer you can count on and a great communicator. Always professional and a consummate gentlemen in his dealings with all parties . This is the Attorney you want to represent YOU. Proven acumen in complex business and technical litigation including engineering, natural sciences , contract breeches and damages. After a careful review of the facts , Mr. Brod fully explains all client's legal options, potential liability and estimated costs of continued representation, litigation and appeals as may necessary . Always worked with me for best possible outcome for me ( the client) regardless of the extent he may have personally benefited by additional work. Counsels to resolve disputes quickly and efficiently and without personal rancor between parties. When the time comes- he will draft and file timely legal actions in the right court venue and is a bulldog in the courtroom . A very able representative for his client at all levels - State and Federal Courts, Appeals and Arbitration. Skilled at depositions and summary judgements. Also did a great job working with coordinating and directing several other attorneys in other States to collect my judgements, something many attorneys will not really know much about even after they win the case and receive a substantial judgement for their clients. And, if he determines he may not be the optimum attorney for your particular case, he will unhesitatingly recommend another attorney. All in all, if you are unfortunate enough to become involved in a business dispute requiring legal action you will be glad you talked to Greg Brod first!
