what people say

I would highly recommend Rodney Mesriani and his team to legally represent anyone. His team were very professional and responsive to my questions, emails and calls. Della and Kay were a great team who made me feel at ease. Having to deal with legal issues is very stressful. I would definitely recommend this law firm to my family and friends who may need legal representation.

I personally had an excellent experience with Mesriani Law Group. They handled my case well and efficient. Without giving any detail it was amazing how they handled it all. I was 110% pleased with their professionalism, staff (including Mr. Mesriani himself), outcome, and the contact kept with me. I would highly recommend their services for a very professional and honest experience.

I strongly recommend Attorney Rodney Mesriani and the excellent staff at his firm. They handled my slip and fall case with open arms after I had been previously turned down by 7 other firms who viewed my chances as "unrealistic". The settlement I received was fair, and I got first class medical care, something I could not have afforded otherwise. The process was long but I am extremely satisfied with the results.
