5 star service excellent at problem solving
Omar is not only compassionate, but intellectually astute and knowledgeable about many facets of the law, but especially helpful for us in solving our issues. When we were most in despair, there was Omar finding yet another solution. He is kind, patient and above all smart in what he does. I highly recommend him. Sometimes lawyers are too busy, irritable, impatient and not problem solvers, Omar is the opposite of all of those traits. He is a rare find in this world, do use his services you will be so pleased you did.

Review
I was hit by a drunk driver at a standstill at 30 mph and suffered neck injuries as well as aggravation to a pre-existing vertigo condition. I was nervous that with a potential pre-existing condition no one would take my case, but I retained Habbas & Associates and have been very satisfied with their work on my case. I am an attorney myself so can recognize when someone is only putting in partial effort, but here they never make me feel like just another client, even given that my case is no 7 figure case. My questions are always answered and my phone calls are always promptly returned. I would recommend this firm to anyone who fell under similar misfortune and needs a personal injury attorney.

Habeas law is a take no prisoner law firm
I had seen billboards advertising Mr Habbas' services and never thought too much about it. One day, an illegal alien who was unlicensed, ran a red light and T-boned my car. Fortunately, the car itself was insured (albeit low cost insurance). Habeas immediately made sure that my injuries were addressed with MRI and X-Rays. In addition, they scheduled me at physical therapy to get me back to normal as quickly as possible. After all was said and done, I recovered fully and the medical bills as well as the car repairs were completely taken care of by his office, working with the other guys. The best part was I did not expect to receive any additional monies since the insurance was a minimal coverage policy. But I did receive a small check, which I was happy to receive. I've heard horror stories of other accident attorneys not returning calls and being difficult to get in contact with. Never with Habbas. Whether it was an e-mail, or phone call, they responded usually within 1-2 days with clear, answers to my questions. Thank you Omar for the great work.

Acknowledgement of service rendered
This is to acknowledge the great service rendered to David and Tressie Fields from a car accident that occurred February 2012. Omar Habbas and staff is an exceptional group. They work with their clients very closely, constantly checking on their health status. The office is very personable. They communicate and work with their clients, assuring them that they are looking out for their best interest. The office setting runs smoothly, never any hassles. Omar Habbas and staff never fails to return your phone calls, and you are welcome to come in and see them if you want to disscuss a matter one-on-one. Before a case is closed, Omar Habbas ensures that you are completely satisfied with the results. I HIGHLY recommend this firm. It's been a pleasure working with them. On a scale of 9 to 10, I definately give them a 10.

Highly Recommend !!
We were referred to Habbas law firm by a friend of my wife's. Mr. Habbas and staff were professional and very considerate. They assisted us every step of the way, available when we had questions and went out of their way to ensure we had the information and resources. If you unfortunatley find yourself in a car accident, I would highly recommend using this law firm. We'd like to especially thank Toni Pangelina for all your help. Your staff were wonderful to us both. Thank you!!

Great staff, very personable.
Everyone from the receptionist to the associates to the lead attorney was exceptionally helpful. They provided doctor and physical therapy referrals, returned my calls promptly. I was impressed that Omar Habbas made himself personally available when requested.

Professional, Caring and Informative!
Mr. Habbas and his team were extremely compassionate and helpful during the course of this unexpected and trying time. His firm assisted me throughout the process, making themselves available for any questions and guided me along the way without having to seek out the next steps. I would highly recommend Habbas and Associates and in fact referred a co-worker who was in an accident who was also pleased with the level of service and attention needed to get through a difficult time. Thank you Mr. Habbas and entire office!
