Highly recommend!
If I could give more than 5 stars I would! I came to Eliot in 2020 after being involved in a car accident. A person ran a red light at an excessive speed and hit me. Even though I had witnesses and was clearly in the right they tried to blame me. I know I needed help and Eliot had been recommended to me by a friend. Him and Courtney went above and beyond. Not only did they do their job and take it very seriously, it was more than that. They truly cared about me and my well being. They made me feel heard and respected. This accident caused me a lot of pain from injury and grief, I could not work at the same capacity I normally did, my mental health plummeted and I was having to see Drs and go to physical therapy all of which Eliot helped me find and figure out. My case was finally finished in my favor! Money aside Eliot and Courtney very much helped me through this tough time. I can not recommend Eliot Reiner enough!!

Best Lawyer Ever!!!!
I feel so ashamed that I hadn't followed through with my promise! Better late than never I suppose! We all have this preconceived notion of how an attorney is. I can tell you first hand that Eliot and his team are on the opposite side of the spectrum. Absolutely amazing team. Let me start with his staff. They always answered everything immediately for me. Never had to wait, quick detailed responses and absolute care for their clients. Nothing short of absolute friendliness. Now let me move onto the man himself. From the first time I met Eliot, he seemed more like a caring friend or family member. Before getting into the specifics of my case, he wanted to know how my personal health was. How I was feeling after my injury. He would ask about my family and how they were doing, with utter sincerity. He also represented my little sister and would always ask how she was doing. Eliot is more than an attorney. He is a friend first, a newly adopted family member and then a lawyer! His expertise and efficiency were nothing short of astounding. Now for a little story...... Two pastors and a lawyer are up in heaven. St. Peter is taking them around to their houses that they will live in for eternity. As they walk down the streets laden with gold, they come up to a little rickety shack with nails half way banged in, duct tape hanging off here and there. St. Peter tells the first pastor "Here is your house!." The pastor asks St. Peter "Are you sure this is mine? I served the almighty my entire life!" St. Peter says "Yup, yup. That's your house. I built it this morning myself." St. Peter walks a little further up the road with the other two. They come up to another shabby looking shack. St. Peter says "Alright Pastor Jim, here is your house!" Pastor Jim is shocked and says "St. Peter, are you sure this is mine? I dedicated my entire life to the Lord." St. Peter assures him that this is his house. So St. Peter and the attorney go up the road a little further. They come up to this gigantic beautiful golden mansion. St. Peter tells the attorney "Here is your house for all of eternity!" The attorney asks him "Are you sure this is mine? Why would I get this big beautiful mansion when the two pastors got those two shacks?" St. Peter says "Those pastors, we have plenty of them up here. You're the first lawyer that's ever made it!" If this was a true story, that lawyer would absolutely be Eliot. As long as he is around, I will never use another personal injury lawyer besides him. Do yourself a favor and hire this man and his team! I can promise that you won't be disappointed. Thank you Eliot and your team for all that you did for me! I will be forever grateful.

Profesional, Knowledgeable, Compassionate, Wonderful!!
If you are looking for a personal injury attorney, Eliot Reiner is your man. He is the type of attorney who will not rest until he accomplishes his task with the very best outcome for you. Eliot will fight for you at your weakest and most vulnerable moments, and continue to do so, making sure you are taken care of. He is always acting in your best interest. Eliot is a very hard worker, professional, knowledgeable, motivated, compassionate, and a go getter. The best quality about him is that he genuinely cares. If you hire Eliot Reiner, not only will he be your best advocate, but you will have a friend for life. Once your case is over he does not just walk away, he will be part of your life for a lifetime. Eliot creates that relationship with you. He represented us approximately 20 years ago in an extremely difficult case, jumping over all the obstacles, and never giving up, in the contrary he fought back harder. I reached out to him recently for medical advice. He was able to guide me in the direction to get taken care of. Eliot will keep you up to date on the entire process and answer any questions or concerns you might have. Rest assured, Eliot will always be working on your case at all hours, he is not an 8-5 attorney. If you need the assistance of a personal injury attorney call the best, Eliot Reiner, and you will see how easily he will guide you through your toughest times. I very highly recommend him!

This is the person for you
Let's face it, no one wants to be in a position of needing an injury lawyer, but in the unfortunate event you do. This is the law firm you want to represent you. Eliot and his legal secretary Courtney are AMAZING. I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. My needs were always put first, communication from start to finish was a major highlight in my case. I was treated as a friend/ family member honestly, rather than just a number by the both of them. My opinions were valued and my doubts or concerns were always reassured. My nerves were calmed, mainly because he was focused on my healing process, a few jokes (when appropriate) as well as my case, he genuinely cares about you as a person, and that meant so much to me. Let me tell you, my attorney Eliot Reiner fought hard for me. He went above and beyond and did everything he could to ensure a great outcome. I'm not sure if details can be added so I won't put too much, just know I couldn't have asked for a better law firm or attorney to represent me. Thanks a million!!!”

100% satisfied
I needed a lawyer for an accident and I didn't know what to do. I was referred to Eliot and I was so glad I was. He was patient and understanding with my complicated case. He spoke to us in a way we could understand and not using legal jargon. I felt he worked hard to master each obstacle we faced and got me the best resolution. He's the first one I think of to refer or go to for legal matters.

I had never had to use an attorney before and selected Eliot Reiner from reviews online. I had also wanted to use an attorney not associated with a large law firm. Eliot was PERFECT! He not only gave me great individual attention by answering questions in a timely manner but definitely knew what he was doing. Legally he took charge of my claim and honored all his commitments to a tee but became a trusted friend and advisor in the process. He was also knowledgeable when it came to health care and his advice sure helped me to get the care I needed. I would not hesitate to give Eliot the highest marks and am so glad that I made the call.

A lawyer Who Cares
If you need a lawyer to represent you then Eliot Reiner is the one you need. Once he gets involved in your case you feel like you have a family member working for you. Eliot keeps you informed on all aspects of your case with timely updates from start to finish. My wife and I were very pleased with the outcome of our case.

Five Star Attorney and Human Being
Eliot is one of the most caring people I've met. He will go to bat for you as your attorney and will always check in on you to make sure you're doing okay. He treated me like family & I couldn't have asked for a more generous or caring person to take my case. I got into a car accident on Christmas Eve and had trouble getting medical treatment that night & was worried I'd be stuck with some neck and back problems. Eliot pushed me to get in to see a doctor and even helped me find places that could treat me in Sacramento. I could not recommend him more if you have a car accident injury. He's a good person and he knows what he is doing!! (Everyone in the office is amazing as well - very nice, knowledgable, and accommodating staff).

Thorough and Diligent
My wife and I utilized the help of Eliot Reiner when my wife and 3 kids were involved in a serious accident back in 2000. He was there to help us every step of the way, despite the other driver (at fault) having very limited coverage. Unfortunately, our son was involved in a serious accident with an uninsured motorist in December 2020. Eliot knew immediately who I was and recalled the full accident from 20 years ago. Despite the other driver having no insurance and my son having very limited uninsured motorist coverage, Eliot immediately accepted this case and gave it his full attention. Eliot’s attention to detail, coupled his very high knowledge of the law and hard work ethic has stood out. My family and I are grateful for everything he has done! If needed, we would not hesitate to call him again and again. And we would refer him to family and friends. Sincerely, Kyle and Anna Starr

Eliot is the best!!!
I just want to say how much I’ve loved working with Eliot and his team during some unfortunate situations. He has not stopped working on my case even during this COVID pandemic. When things get tough he still goes above and beyond to figure out another way. He is truly a very caring and nice man. He is easy to talk to and quick with returning emails and/or phone calls. I trust his opinion and would recommend him to anyone who ever needs his services.

Best Injury Attorney
Having Eliot Renier as my injury attorney was one of the best decisions I have made in my life. At first, when I heard about getting an attorney, immediately I thought it’s too expensive. However, in reality, there are ways in which you can afford to have your attorney. Right from the start, I found someone who listens. For most people, the aftermath of an accident is very difficult. Having Eliot Renier as my attorney has been very rewarding. I felt heard and cared for. He took me step by step in understanding what needs to take place and what is going to happen. I felt like I was part of a team. He worked to the best of his ability to maximize my compensation for my injuries. Not only that, I felt and saw the sincerity of Eliot Reiner in his effort to understand my concerns and needs. If you have been in an accident, I highly recommend that you contact the Eliot Reiner APLC. I can guarantee that you’ll be happy and satisfied. You’re just a phone call away.

Outstanding Attorney!
When I had a severe auto accident, we obtained a referral from our recently retired Lawyer. That referral was Eliot Reiner. This man took the time to come to our home and meet with us face to face when I wasn’t able to go to him due to my injuries. He did not rush through the initial meet with us. He did a very thorough job identifying all my injuries and the facts of my case. By the end of that initial meeting, I knew we had the right attorney representing us. Once he did accept our case, he kept us in the loop on every development of the case throughout the entire length of it. In the end, he exceeded what I had expected to see in a settlement. We also have a great friend in him as well. I couldn’t be happier!

Great accident lawyer highly recommended!
I am writing a review of the service I recently received from Eliot Reiner ‘s law firm. My brother and I were involved in a four-car accident by a noninsured driver who was driving on a suspended license. My injuries were light compared to my brother’s. The delinquent driver totaled both our cars plus another one and the uninsured company F450 truck he was driving. The police didn’t even arrest him. We felt there was no way we would be able to get any money from him or the company he worked for. We decided to employ Eliot Reiner on the recommendation of a friend. I found him to be very concerned and very detailed about our accident. He kept us informed of his efforts and did a great job of getting us a good amount of money to cover our losses and injuries. I felt he truly cared about both me and my brother and wanted what was best for us. I was very grateful for his hard work to get us some money to reimburse us for our losses and medical expenses. He was always very pleasant and willing to explain things I didn’t understand. I am happy to highly recommend Eliot Reiner to anyone who is looking for a great lawyer who really cares about you personally and wants to really work for you to get what you deserve. His staff was very professional and helpful. You won’t be disappointed!

Is Eliot Reiner a Deity?
I don’t know, but I wonder. After a multicar-collision in which I sustained serious injuries requiring surgery, I was referred to Eliot by a family friend. We have developed a truly special relationship of respect, trust and friendship. I thought I might be unique, but after reading many, many other reviews by friends (clients) of Eliot, I know that his talent and his heart are big enough to encompass a huge population, while making the individual feel that he/she is the only one that matters. Like many other reviewers, my case had several medical and legal complexities. Eliot understood, and in many cases could foresee, the possible complications and was able to position ourselves for different outcomes. Through his excellent work and knowledge of the system and the other parties, he was able to obtain the maximum payment for me under my uninsured motorist policy, so we completely avoided a lawsuit and court hearings. He hopes for the best outcomes, makes them happen and truly cares for the individual. He is a legal god to me! (BTW, his favorite target of his humor is himself, so he would totally disagree with my last statement and would point out that his wife would also take serious issue with it….)
