    “Dear Mr. Effres: I just don’t know where to start to show you how much I appreciate your concern in my case. I am glad that I had you representing me in trial. I feel that nobody could have done a better job than you. I thank your family too, for putting up with the stress that this case may have caused, also the time that it may have taken you away from them. You will always be on my mind and I will never forget the experience I had. Thanx. by T. R”

  • Justin is knowledgeable, reliable, and passionate about his clients and his work.

    “About a year ago, my mother was in a serious car accident. Justin Effres was recommended to our family, and I am so glad he was. He handled our case with the utmost professionalism. He was very good about answering his phone and his emails whenever I needed to reach him. He and the law firm staff were always accessible, polite, and kind. Justin was able to look over the details of my mother's case and he handled it as expertly and as quickly as he could. Justin is a very genuine person. I could tell he really empathized with my mother's situation and wanted to help our family as best as he could. He worked hard to get us the best outcome possible, and we were very pleased with the end result. Justin is knowledgeable, reliable, and passionate about his clients and his work. I would absolutely recommend his fantastic services.”

  • They did an absolutely fantastic job and obtained a stunning settlement for my mom.

    “I'm an attorney. My mom was seriously injured in a slip-and-fall accident. Steve and Justin represented my mom. They did an absolutely fantastic job and obtained a stunning settlement for my mom. And they're both wonderful human beings. They, and their staff, treated my mom with kindness and respect. I cannot sing their praises enough!”

  • I would hope that nobody NEEDS to have an injury lawyer, but if they did, I would absolutely recommend Effres and Associates in a heartbeat.

    “In August of 2015 I was involved in a serious motorcycle accident that involved the loss of operation of my dominant arm, as well as a traumatic brain injury. My parents had contacted Effres and associates (they were referred to them by another lawyer for another injury to a relative) and they drove from Agoura Hills down to Pasadena immediately, surveyed the accident scene, and then arrived at the hospital. Over the next two and a half years, Justin Effres and his father Steven Effres, relentlessly pursued this case for me, even when at one point it seemed like there wasn't much that could be done to resolve the situation. I had to go through the typical trial stuff such as meetings, deposition, medical appointments for Effres' firm and for the defense, but Effres did all that he could to make everything doable and smooth as possible for me. My perception of lawyers was certainly changed for the better after working with Justin and his dad, because of their genuine sincerity. They were always available and fully knowledgeable of the questions that my family and I had for them. Despite the case dragging on for over 2 years, they never left me hanging or feeling like the case was going nowhere, because Justin kept searching for answers and kept me updated with everything. All of his hard work paid off in a successful outcome for me. I would hope that nobody NEEDS to have an injury lawyer, but if they did, I would absolutely recommend Effres and Associates in a heartbeat.”

  • Justice was done.

    “Dear Mr. Effres, I was the juror that took your card and assured you I’d call, as time is such a premium in our lives, dropping you a line is much easier. Thank you for the offer of our suggestions and/or comments. What impressed me the most and what seemed the be a determining factor was the diligence in which you presented the evidence, your depth of conviction for Maria’s case was deeply felt. Your calmness in dealing with the judge with the study in the strength of the human character! The only suggestion I would make (and this is coming from a color consultant point of view) would be to wear dark suits, white shirt and a striking tie (LOVE THE SCALE OF JUSTICE TIE), other than that – change nothing. Please pass on my best wishes to Maria even though the money could not begin to suffice for her injury the quality of her life may be enhanced, they are a beautiful family and were represented by a compassionate, thorough, competent lawyer. Justice was done. God bless you. by K. R.”

  • Everyone in the office was always pleasant and helpful.

    “Dear Mr. Effres and Office, It has been almost a year since we accepted the settlement for Jonathan and we wanted to thank you all for your help. We will not forget the empathy you showed us during the stressful time we were going through as a result of Jonathan’s injury. Everyone in the office was always pleasant and helpful. We also recognize the thoroughness with which our case was prepared should it have gone to trial. We won’t hesitate to refer you to our friends should they need an attorney. Jonathan is starting kindergarten next week and has a full-time mom now (since February)! We are all enjoying our new house. Wishing you all the best”

  • I want to thank you and say, God Bless you. If I ever need a lawyer again I won’t forget you.

    “Dear Mr. Effres, It was very kind of you to want to help me with getting settled with social security. I did not send any papers, as I thought I should wait until the first of the month. I have received my check at last. It came on the 3rd of August. I must tell you it made me very happy to know you wanted to help me. I did appreciate that so much, and I want to thank you and say, God Bless you. Sincerely, M. K. P.S If I ever need a lawyer again I won’t forget you. by M. K.”

Further, Mr. Effres's team is comprised of dedicated lawyers and a compassionate staff that makes their clients feel that they are always being thoroughly represented.

  • He never failed to answer my questions, and always gave me valuable advice

    “I found Effres & Associate by chance. Not knowing what to do after my accident, I surfed on the web and came across this company. After reviewing the testimonials, I decided to call them. For some reason, I did not want to call those big law firms that have big billboards everywhere. I went to talk to Justin on the next day, and found him to be a truly concerned young attorney. He is not a pushy lawyer, but always friendly and professional. He never failed to answer my questions, and always gave me valuable advice. After almost two years dealing with the case, Justin brought a successful ending to the case. Thanks, Justin.”

  • Your sincerity and concern of my well-being was above and beyond.

    “Dear Steven Effres, I just wanted to thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart for all your hard work in settling my personal injury case. I could not ask for more from you and your staff. Your sincerity and concern of my well-being was above and beyond anything I could have wished for. I’m currently in the process of getting my real estate license, and making a couple of real estate investments. Thank you for giving me the freedom to start a new life for myself and children. I could not have done it without you. Sincerely yours”

  • So pleased to win the case, through your legal expertise.

    “Dear Mr. Effres, Please allow us to make your acquaintance. We are writing at the urging of Mr. Gusa, who shared with us the lovely history behind our receiving a beautiful six-passenger golf cart. As you know, he is a fine man and he was so pleased to win the case, through your legal expertise, so as to provide us with this unexpected gift. We would never have conceived of having such a large golf cart. Now that we have it, we are discovering how very valuable it is for being able to take a group of our distinguished guests all together on a tour around the monastery grounds. Perhaps one day circumstances will be such that you find yourself in Arizona. If so, we would be pleased to invite you on a tour of the monastery! With best regards by X. N.”

  • He is by far the best in the country for representing these types of malpractice cases.

    “Attorney Steven Effres is a class act. He treats every single case with diligence, attention, compassion, and professionalism. After researching attorneys who specialized in dental malpractice, I found attorney Effres. I believe the Lord led me to this particular attorney. My husband and I are both medical professionals and I cannot begin to explain how thorough and educated he was on my case matter, lingual nerve injuries. His website bio demonstrates his success with these cases, but my experience has enlightened me. He is by far the best in the country for representing these types of malpractice cases. Establishing a case with Steven is like joining a family through marriage. Through the good and bad, he will be with you each step of the way, guiding you through your case. Not to mention, his staff is no less. You can expect your case to be attended to by each of his employees in the same manner.”

  • They treated us with genuine kindness and respect, and made such a difficult time for our family bearable.

    “I cannot recommend Effres and Associates highly enough. Having lost a loved one due to malpractice, I was determined to find the best legal representation to seek justice for my family. We researched and interviewed many lawyers, and Stephen and Justin Effres stood out in every aspect; their knowledge and experience in the malpractice field, their record of winning cases, their patient guidance through the entire legal process, and their accessibility and responsiveness is unsurpassed. They treated us with genuine kindness and respect, and made such a difficult time for our family bearable. We always felt that they had our best interests in mind. They did such a great job on our case and we were extremely happy with the outcome. I highly recommend choosing them for your legal counsel.”

  • They were on top of it since the beginning. They always answered my phone calls and emails quick.

    “Will recommend Steve and Justin to anybody in need of a great lawyer. They were on top of it since the beginning. They always answered my phone calls and emails quick. Frequent phone calls with updates on my case, late work hours. Ready to kick ass.”

  • We will recommend you and your firm without reservation.

    “Dear Steve, With our case now settled, we wanted to reach out to thank you, Justin and the entire team for your representation of our daughter. It was clear to us that your professionalism, expertise and advocacy of our family’s interests made the entire process run smoothly. We specifically appreciate how well you interacted with our daughter. After we hung up with you on speaker phone leaving the courthouse that last day she said “I like him” in a very childlike, affectionate tone. We also wanted you to know that our decision to settle did not come easily. In the end, we believe the decision was in our daughter’s best interest. We know you worked hard to prepare a strong case and do regret not having the opportunity to see that through. Lastly, on a personal note, we wanted to compliment you on Justin. He is a truly impressive young man; intelligent, polite and very good natured. Just a couple of comments Steve made in the days leading up to our daughter’s trial as we got to know Justin better. To our daughter; “You can tell a lot about a man by seeing how his children behave; Mr. Effres seems like a really good man.” To S: “If you have a son, he (Justin) is what you want him to be like; if you have a daughter, he’s the kind of guy you’d like her to end up with.” Anyway, I’m sure you don’t need to hear it from us, but you and your wife must be very proud of your sons. I hope this doesn’t sound hollow, because it is most definitely not, but please keep in touch and let us know if there is ever anything we can do for you. If we ever come across a friend who is in need of representation, we will recommend you and your firm without reservation. Thanks again and best wishes by S, S, and M”

  • I really feel like it's his reputation as a trial lawyer that got us the deal.

    “Two attorney firms dropped us before the 2 year deadline and we were panicking. My husband was badly hurt when a truck backed into him as he was walking by. Justin took us in and we really felt like we had someone on our side. I really feel like it's his reputation as a trial lawyer that got us the deal. I would absolutely recommend him!”

  • I will most certainly come to you if & when I need an attorney.

    “Dear Mr. Effres, I would like to express my deep appreciation for assisting me when I called you regarding the problem I had with a dental group I had been going to. Unfortunately my only solution will be small claims court. Here is a case where the dentist said he was qualified to do root canals and missed the canal and went into my gum even though he took 3 x-rays during the procedure, and very casually said, “sometimes things like this will happen.” I wish to thank you again for your advice and you can be assured I will most certainly come to you if & when I need an attorney. Your thoughtfulness meant a lot! by H. M.”

  • Thanks to you, you made a bad topsy-turvy affair a very easy ordeal.

    “Dear Mr. Effres, We just once again wanted to thank you so very much, for your fine (I should say “great”) handling of Anne’s case. We have never had to “go to court,” or sue anyone in the past and really had no idea where to start with any of the details. Thanks to you, you made a bad topsy-turvy affair a very easy ordeal on our behalf. And my husband and I really appreciate the time and effort you gave the case. I hope we never have to do anything like this again, but should something like this happen you can be sure of hearing from us again – Thank you very, very much. With warmest regards”

    “Dear Mr. Effres: Thank you for all of your work on my behalf regarding the wrongful death of my mother in the parking lot of the Burbank mall. This was a difficult and complex case in that there were several entities that had to be dealt with simultaneously. To make matters worse, none of the parties were inclined to move forward in an effort to reach a resolution. Thanks to your persistence, patience and skillful negotiation a very favorable settlement was subsequently reached with all parties satisfied and in full agreement. I am very pleased that you kept me informed at each step of this process and thankful to have you as my attorney in this matter. Yours truly by L. W.”

    “Dear Steve, I want to Thank You from the bottom of my heart for taking my case & for being my lawyer. You took my case, when other lawyers didn’t think I had a chance.

Your wisdom, experience, knowledge, expertise, focus, dedication, calmness, composure, personality, sincerity & true compassion for my case was felt by me, my family, & the jury. I would not have won my case without you. Because of you, JUSTICE WAS DONE. I could have never imagined, how a person I hardly know, can change another person’s life, as you have helped change mine. You are my guardian angel & my life will never be the same thanks to you. Steve, you are a GREAT LAWYER & SHOULD feel very proud that you have the ability to change a person’s destiny and to touch people’s hearts & emotions in such a positive & emotional way.

    “I would definitely recommend this firm, after everything they have done for me I can’t describe in words, the person that was responsible for my serious Injuries was on suspended license and no insurance but they still stood by my side and fight for me, this firm is about Justice. They were always there when I need anything, they came to the hospital, they even help me go to the court and my favorite I was able to text them when I had a question very convenient. Thanks alot to Justin Effres for always responding to all my questions and never giving up on my case.”

  • Throughout the entire process I truly felt like I had someone on my side, and that Justin truly cared about my best interest.

    “Justin Effres was my attorney. He came to my home on a Saturday in San Bernardino to discuss my case with me. Prior to deciding to go with Effres & Associates I had interviewed several other Law Offices. However out of everyone I talked to Justin seemed the most knowledgeable, and more importantly sincere about helping me with my case. Justin also assured me that if I had any questions or concerns, that I would be dealing directly with him, not an assistant. Justin held 100% to his word. Throughout the entire process I truly felt like I had someone on my side, and that Justin truly cared about my best interest. Thank you so much Justin.”
