Nice work Ray Brooks!
Ray did a great job taking care of my claim. He explained the process to me when I first met with him. He negotiated with the insurance company, didn't settle too soon and assured me that he was moving the process forward. He even worked on the claim after he was paid to get some more money for me.

Responsive, Expert Litigator
I am a 20+ year lawyer, but I am not a litigator. When I need a litigator, I start and end with Ray Brooks. He is an expert litigator and zealous advocate who, in a couple of cases, has gotten better results for me than I expected. Ray is as responsive as any lawyer I have ever worked with. He has a good heart and willingly gives his time to make sure matters are handled properly, including matters that are outside the scope of the pending case but are important to his clients. I could not recommend Ray more strongly.

Sets things right.
The settlement was many times over what the insurance company first offered. The best legal advice and professional care one could hope for. I highly recommend Ray Brooks.

Experienced, Fearless, Results-oriented Attorney
I couldn’t be happier with Ray and was completely impressed on his willingness to listen, no matter how complex the case. While I only consulted with him on a probate litigation matter, Ray was fearless to pick up the phone and call the opposing party on my behalf to resolve matters once and for all. Ray is hands down one of the most responsive, compassionate, experienced and professional attorneys around. I highly recommend him.

Caring & Fighting while you heal...
Ray & Polona worked tirelessly to ensure I received fair compensation for my deep back injuries after I was rear ended. They thankfully took all of the crazy calling insurance people off of my hands to help me recover in peace. Attention to detail & always willing to jump on a call if there were concerns, Ray & Polona are an excellent team of injury lawyers! I recommend them highly.

It was like being cared for by my close family! Outstanding!
I hired Ray Brooks after I had been injured in a car accident in 2014. He and his staff took care of everything, kept me informed about the progress of my case, dealt with bills I was getting from medical providers and negotiated on my behalf. I was able to concentrate on getting medical treatment, and had a piece of mind that he had my best interest in mind.

5 star professionalism
I had a consumer protection case with Delta airlines. Several times I've tried to resolve it by myself with no success - airline reps kept lying to me despite of all the facts I provided. Ray was able to resolve this case in no time - literally it took a day for him to come back with the resolution. I highly recommend Ray for high professionalism and dedication. I will definitely use his services again in future.

Ray was on our side to win
I know Ray Brooks through our children and their Boy Scout program. My youngest boy was bit by a dog and my deductible was high. I asked Ray about the responsibility of the dog’s owner. I wondered if he could help me. Throughout the process, yes it takes a while especially when insurance is involved, Ray assured me that the law was on our side. He was actually appalled that the woman was denying it and wouldn’t take money up front. In the end, my bills were paid, Ray was paid for his time, and my child was compensated. I am thankful for Ray’s hard work and diligence. He totally came through for us and I recommend him if you are looking for someone to support you and what is right.

Consider Ray Brooks for your business and family legal needs
Ray Brooks is a great attorney and he has helped our family many times with excellent legal representation. I met Ray and his family at church and trust me when I say that you feel a lot better about your chances when he is representing you. Not only is he knowledgeable and experienced, he does a great job communicating with you in layman terms that you will understand. I would never hesitate to recommend Ray as my family has had nothing but great experiences and results working with him.

Unresponsive, failed to take action.
Ray started well with the initial phone call, but after that never communicated anything unless directly called. Never responded to a single e-mail, never had any status update when called. Only seemed to do anything when on the phone, and was obviously scrambling because he hadn't done anything, when I initiated the call. My case didn't seem to matter to him. Poor experience, would not recommend.
