Bryan Dawson and his firm did a great job for my parents. They are extremely professional and at the same time very personable. My parents case was complicated and they ended up keeping it out of court and getting a really great settlement. I highly recommend them.

Confident, patient, knowledgeable, kind, gracious, giving and honorable are a few words I use to describe Dawson and Dawson. In the midst of a difficult season they were helpful and wise. I sincerely thank and strongly recommend Dawson and Dawson.

The professionals in this firm are knowledgable, experienced, and very thorough. Equally important, is they know when it is time to consult another attorney in a different speciality area. They took time to explain things to me as the case evolved and did not take any action until I understood the potential consequences of a myriad of decisions.

The attorney and staff I worked with here were incredibly patient, sincere and competent. I felt like I had a true advocate with me throughout the entire process and I am very grateful for their hard work and expertise.

Following a traumatic car accident, I was referred to Dawson and Dawson by a mutual friend. From my very first contact and communication with Bryan Dawson, I was impressed and reassured by his gracious and non-pressured demeanor. Bryan listened carefully to my story vis-à-vis my accident, and laid out the various remedies which I might pursue with or without their representation. Once I made my decision to have Dawson and Dawson represent me and steer me through the muddy litigation waters, I immediately was reassured of having made a wise decision. Bryan was adept and knowledgeable. All communication was extremely timely and forthright. My case was resolved with a minimum of effort and worry on my part. I would whole-heartedly recommend Dawson and Dawson: they handled my case with knowledge, timeliness, integrity and kindess. And I received a good and fair settlement..what more could I have asked for? I could not be more pleased!

I was in a car accident that totaled my truck and put me out of work for about a year. I found Vames & Wang by chance, just looking for injury lawyers on google. I decided to take a chance, and I could not be happier with my choice. Emery Wang was very direct about the whole process and made me feel comfortable through every step of the way. He is very knowledgeable and was dedicated on securing the best outcome from my accident. I have to hand it Pete Dethlefs also. He was amazing throughout the whole process. He answered all my calls and emails right away. He went to bat for me with the insurance and disability companies and he always made sure I was crystal clear on every detail of my case. He really had my back. Pete, if you're reading this, you're the man! These two guys really make a great team and i could not be happier with the outcome of my settlement. Emery and Pete are two of the smartest and most dedicated individuals I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I would definitely recommend them to anyone seeking legal representation.

I was the victim of a car, pedestrian accident last year, and I was fortunate enough to have Emery Wang handle my case. Emery and Pete Dethlefs handled the many and complicated details of my case, which would have driven me bonkers, and took it to an equitable and just conclusion. They were a pleasure to work with, and I highly recommend them.

Emery Wang exceeded my expectations. I ended up with twice the amount I thought I was going to receive. I highly recommend this law firm!

Expert experience, quality customer service, Paul and his team really treat us like family. It’s been a great blessing to have someone who listens and cares about all your concerns, and takes care of everything. This is the one and only law firm you will ever need!

Emery Wang represented me in a case regarding a neighbor's dog knocking me over and breaking several bones about a year ago, requiring hospitalization, surgery and extensive rehab. Pete Dethlefs was my solace and helper during that year. Together they made the process smooth and so much easier for me than if I had tried to handle all the details myself, especially in my fragile state at that time. They saved me and my family from what would have been a total nightmare. Emery, Pete, and Juanita were efficient and helpful. My thanks to all of them. I recommend them highly.

Richard Used to work for insurance companies and he knows how they think that why he was always Step ahead. Fearless and the most smart person I have ever met in my life. My case was dead and pretty much no lawyer can do anything about it. But Richard and his assistant Mathew said otherwise and got my a great settlement amount I have never dreamed of. Big thank you To Mathew who was on the top of everything in my case answering my calls and emails in matter of minutes explaining things to me in very simple ways. For anyone whose looking for a lawyer after car accident. My advice to you is don’t talk to insurance companies even your own insurance company. Go to Rizk law. Those people are the only ones on plant earth that you can trust and they will help you and they will get your back.

Richard and his team worked hard on my case keeping me updated on its progress and making sure the settlement i got was fair. When i hired them i was unsure how any of this would work out, but now i can say its worked out better than i ever hoped for.

They took care of my mom after a pretty bad accident. We were rear ended by someone at about 45mph. Wrecked her car and her hip. These guys really worked hard for her. Check them out if you need legal help with an injury situation.

Rich and his team at Rizk Law are a group of passionate, hardworking individuals who are dedicated to their clients, and will fight tooth and nail to make them whole again. I had the opportunity to work with the team at Rizk Law in 2018, and was constantly impressed by their attention to detail, and their breadth of knowledge.

Rich is fearless in his pursuit of getting a just and fair settlement for his clients. Rich goes the extra mile to be there for those who have been injured in an auto accident by being a calming, rock-steady presence in a time of crisis. He listens with compassion and understanding and then with the help of his highly skilled and trained staff, will come up with a plan of action to get the results that you want and deserve.

i was involved in a vehicle accident in which i searched out an attorney and the same person was recommended each time. Ryan was nothing but professional, helpful, and anytime i needed information or advice he did not hesitate to come through. very good experience for a bad situation. definitely would use him again and recommend to anybody. Thank you Ryan!

If you need help, Ryan Hilts will absolutely go to bat for you. He has come to my rescue twice now, and I am positive that without his representation, I would not have been treated fairly. Years ago, I was in a crosswalk on my bicycle, crossing with some other pedestrians, when a drunk driver swerved around a car, narrowly missing a large group of crossing people. Instead, the driver hit me square on. I went up and over the hood of their vehicle. Instead of checking to see if I was okay, the drunk driver drove off. I was pretty badly injured, but I had luckily remembered their license plate and reported the car to the Police. Not only was the driver drunk; he had also been driving with a suspended license! When it came time to litigate my hospital bills, you’d think it would be a slam dunk case, except for one thing: Nobody would represent me! After almost losing all hope, I was put into contact with Ryan Hilts, and he took my case immediately. I can’t describe to you the sense of relief I felt, knowing that he cared enough to help me when others did not. Thanks to his help, my case was resolved successfully. Just recently I was injured again, and I went again to Ryan Hilts. He came to my aid immediately. This case was a bit tougher and took years to battle through, but Ryan stood by me. That case too was resolved in my favor. A tremendous attention to detail was paid to both of my cases. Ryan and his team were always available to answer my legal questions and offer advice, by email or by phone. In addition to great legal help, I also found Ryan was very easy to reach, and very very enjoyable to speak with on the phone. He has a great sense of humor. I’ve had nothing but good encounters and conversation with his staff. Kelsey, his colleague, went above and beyond in keeping up with me and was also enjoyable to correspond with. If you need legal help, you couldn’t do better than Ryan Hilts. He will go above and beyond, and is someone who represents you as not just a client, but as a friend.

I depend on reviews for almost everything I buy, do and experience. I'm not as good at consistently writing reviews though. This is an exception! Generally people don't contact a lawyer unless there is something life altering going on. That was the case when I became a client of Ryan Hilts. Ryan made me feel important and supported through a difficult time. He is truly caring, He never made me feel like he was too busy to listen. The award that was ultimately agreed upon was fair and with little effort on my part. Ryan did it all! I hope I never need his services again, but if I do, I know Ryan will be there to help me through it. His competence and compassion are second to none and more than I ever expected from an attorney. Truly! I am proud to say that I feel that not only did I acquire a very effective attorney, I have a friend. Ryan Hilts, Attorney at Law is the best!

Ryan Hilts was referred to us by a friend when we unexpectedly wound up needing a wrongful death attorney. My head was spinning in not knowing what to do after this tragedy, thankfully Ryan was calm and knew exactly what steps needed to be taken in getting everything in order. He has gone above and beyond in terms of this particular matter, any legal question-even not directly related to the wrongful death side- but the criminal side as well. He is prompt in getting us answers and always updating us even if the update is that there is nothing new. If anyone is seeking out an attorney to trust and rely on Ryan is your guy.

Ryan Hilts did an excellent job handling my injury case. I was rear-ended while driving on I-5. After I spoke with Ryan he immediately got the ball rolling with all parties (insurance companies). He was responsive and diligent in his representation. I could not have been happier with the result. Thanks again, Ryan!

Good attorney here boys I won my case with them and number 2 on its way

I'd like to thank the staff and, members of Ransom, Gilbertson, Martin, and, Ratliff. Thank you for your help and, support during my time of need. I truly appreciate your team going above and, beyond what I anticipate. Again thank you. Sincerely, DL Sparkman.

Mr. Martin has been my lawyer since 2010 and I am very thankful he took my case at the time when it was very complicated. I think he is a very good lawyer and a good person.

Mr. Martin represented me throughout the arduous process. He kept me appraised of my rights and informed of our progress. When issues arose that I had trouble understanding, he took time to make sure that I did. I thank you all for a successful resolution to my claim.

They are a tremendous help in dealing with the insurance company. Adian Martin was able to get them to close the claim and help get my medical expenses reimbursed along with the final settlement. I know that I will deal with SAIF in the future and I am thankful that I have his firm representing me.

From start to finish Matthew and his paralegal Gillian provided me with outstanding assistance with my case. At our very first meeting and on Matthew was upfront and honest about what I could expect in the process and settlement. I was always treated with compassion and empathy during a very stressful time in my life. Not only were all my calls or emails almost always answered immediately, the subject matter was explained clearly and never left me with questions. Overall I am extremely thankful I chose Kaplan Law to handle my case. I highly recommended them to anyone looking for a great attorney.

I worked with Matt Kaplan after a car accident where I was rear-ended in August resulted in several back injuries and my car was totaled. He was extremely responsive, professional, and personable from beginning to end. It honestly alleviated so much stress, knowing that my case was being handled by someone capable and knowledgeable in this area of law. I would highly recommend him for any services you may need in this area.

This office- omg ???????? Gillian- I wish everyone I dealt with could be like you. You are the absolute best. Everything you need she’s right there to help you as if you are the only client they have. Matt- the honesty, professionalism and thoroughness to get the best result possible made it so easy to trust. The patience and understanding through one of the most frustrating and physically painful experiences, I have personally experienced- With them I could say you know what I’m not ok, I’m in a lot of pain and this time I can’t just tough it out. I truly appreciate Gillian and Matt. To them it wasn’t a matter of feeling ok.. now, it was a matter of healing now and for the future. I’m so thankful for Kaplan Law for all their work within the last year and a half. While I hope I never need them again... there’s no one else I would call or recommend they truly a great team and exceeded all expectations.

I had a very positive experience working with Matt and Gillian. They were very professional and very personable. I suffered injuries from a bicycle/automobile accident and insurance companies were doing everything in their power to pay out as little as possible for my medical bills. After my initial meeting with Matt, the burden of dealing with insurance agents was lifted and a just settlement was negotiated for my trauma. I can't recommend highly enough Kaplan Law for personal injury representation.

I can not speak highly enough about Matt Kaplan and Gillian. I am so grateful to have had them on my side due to a very unfortunate event. Sometimes a life changing event happens and your whole world changes. There were available to me for every single question or concern. They helped me navigate an extremely hard circumstance and did it with such compassion, professionalism, honesty, and integrity. Throughout the whole process they gained and kept my trust wholeheartedly and I knew I had the best team on my side. I am so confident in them and grateful that they were my legal team and will forever be grateful to them. If you find yourself in need of legal representation, you should never hesitate to have Kaplan law on your side. Thank you Matt and Gillian.

At our very first meeting and on Matthew was upfront and honest about what I could expect in the process and settlement. I was always treated with compassion and empathy during a very stressful time in my life. Not only were all my calls or emails almost always answered immediately, the subject matter was explained clearly and never left me with questions. Overall I am extremely thankful I chose Kaplan Law to handle my case. I highly recommended them to anyone looking for a great attorney.

    I worked with Matt Kaplan after a car accident where I was rear-ended in August resulted in several back injuries and my car was totaled. He was extremely responsive, professional, and personable from beginning to end. It honestly alleviated so much stress, knowing that my case was being handled by someone capable and knowledgeable in this area of law. I would highly recommend him for any services you may need in this area.

    This office- omg ???????? Gillian- I wish everyone I dealt with could be like you. You are the absolute best. Everything you need she’s right there to help you as if you are the only client they have. Matt- the honesty, professionalism and thoroughness to get the best result possible made it so easy to trust. The patience and understanding through one of the most frustrating and physically painful experiences, I have personally experienced- With them I could say you know what I’m not ok, I’m in a lot of pain and this time I can’t just tough it out. I truly appreciate Gillian and Matt. To them it wasn’t a matter of feeling ok.. now, it was a matter of healing now and for the future. I’m so thankful for Kaplan Law for all their work within the last year and a half. While I hope I never need them again... there’s no one else I would call or recommend they truly a great team and exceeded all expectations.

    I had a very positive experience working with Matt and Gillian. They were very professional and very personable. I suffered injuries from a bicycle/automobile accident and insurance companies were doing everything in their power to pay out as little as possible for my medical bills. After my initial meeting with Matt, the burden of dealing with insurance agents was lifted and a just settlement was negotiated for my trauma. I can't recommend highly enough Kaplan Law for personal injury representation.

    I can not speak highly enough about Matt Kaplan and Gillian. I am so grateful to have had them on my side due to a very unfortunate event. Sometimes a life changing event happens and your whole world changes. There were available to me for every single question or concern. They helped me navigate an extremely hard circumstance and did it with such compassion, professionalism, honesty, and integrity. Throughout the whole process they gained and kept my trust wholeheartedly and I knew I had the best team on my side. I am so confident in them and grateful that they were my legal team and will forever be grateful to them. If you find yourself in need of legal representation, you should never hesitate to have Kaplan law on your side. Thank you Matt and Gillian.

From the first day I met Marc I knew he was the attorney for me. He was easy to talk to and confident. Marc defended me when I was T-boned in my car by another driver. My car was totaled and I fractured my neck. I sued the negligible driver’s employer who he was driving for at the time of the collision. The employer’s insurance company wanted to settle out of court but failed to meet us at an appropriate settlement until the day before trial. We stuck to our guns and the insurance company offered over double their best offer, which we were pleased with. We were confident in doing well in court and I think the insurance company knew that. Marc and his team did a great job at preparing me for the trial and even came to my house to better understand who I was and how this crash had affected my life. I was seen at the VA in Portland for my neck fracture. The VA had a lien on nearly $20,000 to cover my medical costs. A few months after the case was settled, Marc and his team was able to get the VA to drop the lien for the full amount! Needless to say I am very pleased with the outcome of the case and happy to have worked with Marc. Thank you Marc for making sure I was treated fairly by the insurance company.

My opinion and experience with the Johnston Law Firm was nothing but positive. I was out running on a road above Portland's Forest Park, Skyline Drive. I choose to to stay off roads, would rather run trails. I was running against traffic coming at me for a best view for a short distance back to my car, about 3/4 of a mile. A vehicle traveling in the same direction I was running crossed the center lane, made a hard turn to avoid hitting me but caused there vehicles rear end to knock me into a ditch filled with rocks. I spent 9 days in an ER, unconscious and followed with 3 separate Rehab facilities. I suffered a traumatic head injury that thankfully is continuing to minimize. I was on disability leave from work for 6 months. I was very fortunate, could have been much worse. The Johnston Law Firm (JLF) represented me and turned one stone over after another to minimize the $170,000 worth of medical costs awaiting me and provide me with a settlement that benefited me in my medical recovery and financially. I have nothing but thank you to say for all JLF did for me, my family and friends. I only have this review to correlate the positive experience I had and how fortunate I am for the remainder of my life. Thank You, Bobby "Thankful" Me

In 2016 I was involved in two car accidents due to the careless actions of another driver.The first accident I was hit by a driver who ran a red light The impact broke my collarbone And totaled my truck Resulting in surgery to repair my collarbone. I called the Johnston law firm and talked to Marc I told him what happened to me he said I had a good case And if you hire me I will work hard for you Hiring mark Was a very wise decision Marc and his team stepped in and handled Everything for me Then a couple months later I was rear-ended This law firm carried me through the most horrible time of my life.They assisted me throughout my recovery all the way to the settlement. They were great in talking to debtors/bill collectors, so I was not constantly harassed...Marc was very forthright about every aspect of my case.He is one of the most prepared Lawyers I have ever met,he handled my case with, what seemed to me, to be the utmost care and attention.Marc and staff were absolutely professional and personable. His staff is just as prepared and driven as he is thank you Julitta and Karen You will not find a better Lawyer anywhere. words are not enough to express my gratitude.

I got into a wreck in 2016, called marc, he called me in and we talked about everything involving the accident. He gave me a straight up answer, so i used him to represent me. In 2017, i was hit again, he represented me on this one also. The whole process was seamless. Anytime i had a question they answered it very quickly. When it came to preparing for parts of the case, he told me this is how this is going to go and thats exactly how it went. If you need some to represent you, marc should be the only one you visit. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED WITH HIM! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

In 2015 I was rear-ended in a three-car collision and Marc Johnston helped me out substantially. Marc had been my dad's attorney for a few years at this point and was gracious enough to help me out. During this time I was going to college and didn't understand my rights or how to properly go about dealing with a major car accident. Marc helped me every step of the way. He did everything he could to see that I got more than my fair share of compensation for the accident. My car had been totaled and I was injured. He helped me get physical therapy and massages for two years. Marc wanted to make sure that physically I felt better before making negotiations for my settlement. Marc made sure I received full compensation for my totaled car, that all my medical bills were paid for and that my settlement was what I deserved. He took care of everything for me, all I had to do was show up to my medical appointments and submit my paperwork. Marc genuinely cared about my health and was very sincere about his work. I am grateful for Marc's help with my car accident and highly recommend him!

Scott spend endless hours, days and nights for over 2 years on making sure I had nothing but the best at all times. He was always on top of anything and everything that was thrown his way. No matter the questions I had or what time of day I always had an answer quickly and was kept very informed at all times. Everyone was always extremely honest and loyal. I would recommend Scott to anyone and everyone looking for legal guidance.

Comfortable, efficient and professional. I contacted Forum Law Group for a bike injury. It is the first time I've needed legal counsel and was referred to them by a coworker. I am so thankful I found them! Unlike some of the horror stories other coworkers have shared about depositions, mediation and settlements, Scott, Lisa, Liz and Steve were so helpful and well-prepared for all of the phases of the case that it was (dare I say this?) easy! I suppose not everyone will be able to have this experience but throughout the case I always felt they cared about me. I never had to guess what was going on. They were always available if I had questions and kept me well aware of the status of the case. I had expectations that this would be an awful experience and it turned out to be the opposite. I hadn't realized that something that is inherently difficult and stressful could be made so much easier with talented, professional, hard working people. Wish I could give more stars. They deserve it. :)

After a car accident and unresponsive insurance folks, I went to Forum Law and began working with Stephen Voohees. I was very impressed with his expertise and his ability to listen well and follow through. Lisa and Liz were also wonderful. Each time I called, I was greeted with warmth, and I felt that I was not a "case" but a client in a shared process. I would recommend Stephen Voorhees, Lisa and Liz at Forum Law. I was not looking for a "barracua" experience and I found they were respectful, optimistic and very ethical. Excellent all the way!

Working with the Forum Law Group was a great experience. They are kind, helpful, respectful, and helped me to understand the process and what to expect. Their responses to my calls and emails were prompt and clear. I am so grateful for their expertise and would recommend their services to anyone. Additionally they helped me recover from my accident by providing me with the best settlement I could expect. They go above and beyond to provide caring assistance through the complex process. I HIGHLY recommend them!!

Scott and Forum Law Group were very professional and helpful. I was always informed of the procedures and never pressured into taking decisions. Thank you. I appreciate all your help. Patricia

    John and his team (Lisa in particular) made a cumbersome and complicated process as simple and painless as possible. I hope we never have to experience again the circumstances that lead us to them, but if we end up going down this road again Paulson/ Coletti will be the first phone call we make.

    John Coletti was great throughout the whole malpractice incident. He is sharp, focused, effective, and also a good guy. He made the best of difficult circumstances and I am very grateful to him for his work on the case.

    Called this law firm, on a list of others, due to staples being left inside my foot from a surgery 18 Or 13 months ago, received email they could Not take my case, Lol ok, I'm at risk of infection with metal in my foot, which leads to full amputation of my foot/leg. Well emailed and called Several other lawyers, they say I do have a case, and Several want to represent Me after actually hearing the Whole story of what led up to the surgery in March 2019!! Y'all loss!!

    Having to deal with the effects of injuries and loss seemed to me to be an insurmountable task. John, Lisa and their team never failed to put me at ease. Their professionalism, communication and optimism are things one could only ever dream of. Their settlement mediation was a work of art. I cannot recommend them enough.

    John Coletti was hired by our attorney as an assist for our litigation. This combination delivered a dynamite one-two punch resulting in a judgement without going to trial. They were diligent, methodical, and thoroughly prepared to go to trial. I found John to be extremely passionate about our case. He explained situations thoroughly and sought remuneration aggressively. He was extremely supportive throughout all the twists and turns of the litigation. I would recommend him highly for trial litigation.
