Made me a better expert
I was an out of state expert hired by Robert. He skillfully guided me through an unfamiliar legal process, and kept me focused on the basics in a very complex case involving a trip and fall. Never did he try to put words in my mouth, and took the time to understand my point of view. His methodology was flawless. He made me a better expert. I would recommend Robert, and hope work with him again in the future.

Knowledgeable Consultation Service
As my business grew, so did my liability and exposure. After a brief consultation with Robert, I felt confident in the areas of concern and what needed attention. After the consultation, he followed up with me to make sure I was on track with the necessary documents for him to review. Roberts knowledge and service has been a great reassurance that if anything did happen with in my business, I would have the proper policies/disclosures in place to protect myself. While I did have questions along the way, Robert was a phone call or email away, with prompt follow up. Definitely recommended!

My Daughter's Vehicle Accident
The best way to express my view of our attorney Robert Miyashita is that he is an awesome Attorney! Robert is a very attentive, curious and caring Attorney, he connects with his clients and makes them feel at home. We felt very comfortable, he is good communicator at relating legal advice and educating his clients, and we felt we could trust him to make the best legal decisions for us. We are glad we did! My observations of Robert, he reviewed the case and documentation very thoroughly, he determined right away the coverage and was very detailed with the injuries and communicating the injuries to the adjuster, and got us a great settlement. To conclude Robert was an awesome negotiator.

Highly Reommended
I have never seen an insurance company respond so quickly. My auto ins responded to Mr. Miyashita's requests within days and I had resolution to my injuries. I am very happy with his concern for my health and future from the injuries sustained from a car accident. He is very professional, respectful and effective. What more can you ask for. He truly seeks out the best interest of the client and I would seek his advice and expertise at any time in the future.
