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!

This law firm is great. If I could give them more than 5 stars I would. I had a very smooth and easy experience with them. Represented me well with my case. Got me a great settlement. And what's best of all , it was done by email and phone. I wouldn't hesitate to refer them to anyone. Thank you SLP.

Though the process was complicated and difficult, they saw it thru the entire process. They got the job done. They started fast, but the turn around time of getting results was longer that I hope for. The only drawback was btw the Firm and myself. Somewhat lack of communication and not getting the right answers.

Great outcome! Only suggestion would be to get monthly updates rather than me asking for them.

I came across SLP by chance when dealing with an issue with my car. I figured I'd take a. Chance and have them review my documents. Turned out I had a case. It took 3 years due to COVD delays, but I recently received a generous settlement. SLP was helpful and informative during the whole process. I highly recommend them if you suspect that your vehicle is a lemon.

SLP took care of my lemon law case . I had to comminicate with many people during the process . It took close to 4 years and just received the settlement check as agreed after I surrendered the vehicle . You have to be patient , I guess you're not paying anything for their service in the process . I had very little work to do- only to submit documents . Sometimes you have to keep following up to see where the process is. I'm happy with the settlement since I would not have been able to do it on my own .

I'm happy with my settlement. During the deposition there were some moments of confusion and confusion around paperwork that was submitted but ultimately it all worked out bc I was pleased with the final settlement offer. From the time I initiated the process to receiving the final check it was just under four years. I expected that long of a timeless, just clarifying for anyone who may be curious. During the process you interact with many different lawyers and point people which seems to be standard

Every person I spoke to at Stratigic Legal was very polite and attentive. My questions s were always answered and if I left a message, I would receive a call back the same day. The only set back is that the case took about 2.5 years to go through.
