Real Clients. Real Reviews.

I highly recommend SLP to anyone. I recently won my case and found the process to be super simple. They promised that I wouldn’t pay anything unless I won, and that was correct. (It was hard for me to believe).

- Christine W.

I just received the good news that I am receiving full compensation for my vehicle making it possible for me to buy a truly reliable vehicle.  I am grateful for the time, energy, and guidance I received as a client of Strategic Legal Practices. You cannot go wrong retaining this practice, if they take your case, be assured they will deliver a settlement that will be fair to the consumer.

- Cindi W.

They will NOT get paid if you don’t win, and they won’t take your case if they think you will lose. SLP turned a bad situation for our family into a great opportunity for a new beginning. Thank you to the entire team at Strategic Legal Practices.

- Christine W.

SLP responded and acted quickly to get us through this process. I must say, everything was said and done in a matter of months. We received every penny we paid on the vehicle back to us and throughout the entire process we were kept updated and checked up on regularly. Thank you guys for the help and for providing professional customer service.

- Gilda E. & Pedro M.

You exceeded my expectations shown by the results of your expertise, I am appreciative to be one of the Recipients for this Settlement!

- Ona T.
