She knows the insurance company and knows how to beat their game.

Letty and her team were so pleasant to work with, they explained everything in detail and made sure I didn't leave with any unanswered questions. The communication was excellent and I was always able to get in touch with Letty whenever I needed to. I would definitely recommend Letty to anyone looking for a strong, honest attorney.

Ms. Valdes was recommended to me by an attorney in a different field. She said that Ms. Valdes had been in insurance defense, so she made a great Plaintiff's attorney as she knew all the ins and outs of the defense side. My crash was not catastrophic, but I did have medical bills and still have residual pain. No surgery or anything, so it was, what I thought, a very low value case. Ms. Valdes didn't hesitate, and took the case after speaking with me. She was very responsive when I would call, and kept me updated often with my case. Finally, when the insurance company just wouldn't cooperate, she decided to file suit. FYI, when suits are filed, the attorney's percentage fee increases. I told her I would go with her best judgment and if filing was required then so be it. Within 2 weeks (maybe less), I got a call from her. She had gone ahead and contacted the insurance company one more time to try to resolve - and she was successful! Ultimately, I received almost 3 times as much as I had been expecting to be offered. Her office negotiated my bills down by about half which is awesome. I have no complaints about my experience with her. I also ended up meeting with Mr. Lorenzo himself to receive my check. This office is very comfortable and client-friendly while remaining extremely professional. I appreciate all the hard work Lorenzo & Lorenzo, and specifically Ms. Valdes and her support team put into my 'little' case. I would absolutely use them again!

Provided an exceptional experience. Through the entire process they maintained a high quality of service. This was a first time experience, they showed a genuine concern for the injuries I had sustained in the auto accident and with every step taken, patience and fortitude followed. They gave me great support, communication, and guidance. I highly recommend this firm, I really feel that they had my best interest in mind and I am glad to have had them on my side.

Unlike many lawyers doing personal injury work, Ms. Valdez has extensive trial experience and knows the law. She is aggressive and cares about her clients. Her willingness to try cases should help any client get fair offers before having to rely on 6 strangers that will ultimately decide their fate if the case must go to trial. I highly recommend her.
