We recently used Mr. Shaw of the firm and we were so grateful to have him. Not only was he patient with our numerous questions, he took the time to answer them all, and always made sure we were good. Thanks so much in helping us get justice for our father. Roxanne

After being a victim in a very serious motor vehicle accident as a pedestrian, I began working with McLeish Orlando. I cannot say enough incredible things about my experience working with this firm and all of the staff who I interacted with over the course of my case with them. They were kind, caring, and compassionate and I truly don't know what I would've done without their expertise. Everyone I interacted with was so knowledgable and they made sure that I was updated every step of the way and I so appreciate their support and willingness to help me and to make sure that I had a solid understanding as we went through the case. Thank you so much to all of the incredible people who work at McLeish Orlando, especially Dale and Joe, and to anyone who is seeking representation: I cannot say enough great things about them and I know you would be satisfied working with them!

We interviewed several firms about representing me for a very serious pedestrian accident I suffered. Meeting Salvatore Shaw was great. He was very knowledgeable, patient, could easily answer a myriad of questions without hesitation. He was very thorough in explaining the process, what to expect and the time lines. The attention he gave us at our meeting never waivered. He kept us informed of progress without may need to follow up. He was encouraging, did not allow the process or appointments to overwhelm me. He effectively helped me understand and navigate through what is a complex process to make it a stress free as possible. I was not a number, Mr. Shaw treated me with empathy, respect and ensured that he got to know me to understand my goals and my health care needs. He skillfully negotiated an excellent settlement that I thought would not happen and in the time lines he had mapped out. Also, as promised, there were no surprises in fees . Mr. Shaw and the team got results. He was transparent from the beginning I definitely made the right choice. The staff are amazing! Phone calls are picked up at the first ring. They are pleasant and helpful. They all communicated so that everyone was on the same page. I really i with the staff. There were 2 staff that should be acknowledged. Arielle Koch, the Law Clerk who answered all our questions and concerns if they arose regarding the tort side. She was completely informed which made things so much easier. She was always a pleasure to talk to you left every conversation with a sense of satisfaction and knowledge. Kimberly Teixeira the Accident Benefit Benefit Law Clerk. She was patient and knowledgeable and making her the most effective person to deal with my insurance. She was an effective liaison who ensured we were compensated appropriately. You can expect a strong, knowledgeable who deal with the clients in the most effective and caring way. This is the firm you want to represent you. You get quality, hard work and extensive knowledge from this firm. They ensured that they understood and in turn ensured that all my future permanent challenges recognized by all parties. My future needs will now be met. The extraordinary settlement ensures that I will not have to worry about future needs and funds. I can continue with my many therapies and not worry about funds for them. I am grateful to have met Mr. Shaw and in turn his staff. I highly recommend McLeish Orlando. They stand by their name/knowledge and mean what they say. They are an outstanding group of people and I had the pleasure to deal with them. I am very grateful for Mr. Shaw and his team's compassion and understanding when I needed it the most. They are a credit to the law and they should be the model of how to work with clients!

(Translated by Google) The best work team I could have, very attentive and friendly. I only speak Spanish and it was never an impediment for them to give me the best advice. I 100% recommend my lawyer who was Salvatore, an incredible human being, he was fighting for me these 5 years. A thousand and a thousand thanks for the accompaniment and patience. The best choice to take the process of my accident. (Original) El mejor equipo de trabajo que pude tener, muy atentos y amables. Hablo solo español y nunca fue un impedimento para que me brindaran la mejor asesoria. Recomiendo 100% mi abogado que fue Salvatore un ser humano increible estuvo estos 5 años luchando por mi. Mil y mil gracias por el acompañamiento y la paciencia. La mejor eleccion para que llevaran el proceso de mi accidente.

Patrick and his team quite literally gave us the strength to continue with my dads Case. In 2012 my dad was in an accident. McLeish Orlando was not the first law firm we used. We actually had two firms prior to finding them. The other two firms were quick to see the case and tell us to settle which would have impacted our families future. When we met Patrick (he came to our house as my dad was very unwell) we knew he would advocate for us with the utmost integrity and he did just that. His team advocated for our family and had great patience with my dads new brain injury . I cannot recommend them more. We listened to Patrick’s advice the entire way and did not settle. We couldn’t be happier with the results and cannot thank McLeish Orlando enough.
