Hear From Our Clients

When you hire an attorney from Pels Law to help you with your case, you will join the many hundreds of our previous clients who have learned how far we will go to fight for you and give you the best possible advice we can give. Not only are we respected by our peers, but the vast majority of our clients recommend us as well. Below is just a sampling of some of the wonderful feedback we’ve gotten from our clients over the past few years.

“Your good works on my behalf have not been forgotten or taken for granted. Last week my hands froze up. This happens from time to time … I was able to dip into the monies you were able to settle for and see my chiropractor for several visits without making take financial choices no one should have to take. It may not sound like a big deal, but to me it was. My hands are back to a working state and I can continue to live the best quality of life I can. So your good works are still in action.

So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for doing what you do and making my life a bit easier and helping hold the demons of old age and depression at bay.”

“Ms. Olsen was everything I had hoped my former “high priced” attorneys would have been. In addition to being an honest, kind-hearted and decent person, Ms. Olsen is an impassioned and gifted orator who’s Courtroom presence dwarfed opposing counsel. She took my case to heart and was incredibly prepared for trial. She really turned the tides in my favor where my previous attorneys had failed. Don’t be fooled by her warm demeanor and likable personality, Ms. Olsen easily overpowers opposition in the Courtroom and is incredibly fast on her feet.”

“I am so grateful for your support, faith, and friendship. It’s a rare day that the good guy wins in our system. Your work and skills have again carried the day and I am as pumped as the day (you took over my divorce).”

“Thank you for your work, effort and patience dealing with my case and yours truly. Before you took me on, I had felt that our justice system had not only failed, but abandoned me. You have changed that perspective. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought the outcome you achieved was possible. Thank you for changing my life.”

“If someone asked me to describe Jon Pels I would probably say ‘Smart, tenacious bulldog!’  That’s the ultimate compliment from me.”

Mr. Pels, thank you! You are my hero!”

    Jon Pels provided exemplary service to my mother when, at age 98, she was inadvertently struck down by a grocery store employee and broke her right hip. Prior to this accident, she was living a completely independent life.
    Jon immediately compiled in-depth, factual documentation regarding her case and, within a few months, skillfully negotiated a fair and just settlement which ensured payment for all future medical bills and long-term care for the rest of her life. His efforts avoided a lengthy, unnecessary trial which would have created several years of enormous stress for my mother.
    Jon is not intimidated by bullying or unscrupulous attorneys. His integrity is above reproach. Early in his career, he earned the respect of judges, mediators and his peers. He entered negotiations on behalf of my mother fully prepared for any opposing counsel’s argument, always maintaining his honesty and ethical values throughout the process. Unlike many attorneys who are “too busy” to stay in touch with their clients, Jon kept in close contact with my mother, frequently updating her on the progress of her case. She had great confidence in Jon and felt protected at all times. He is a tribute to his profession and we are proud to know him.
    My mother loved Jon as a good friend until the day she died at age 104. I unequivocally recommend his service to others.

    Maria solved my problem

    Maria Olsen got me results! Maria was referred to me by a friend to see if she could help me with a problem client. Maria listened to my problem, asked me questions and heard me when I said I wanted to get results but I did not want to go to court if possible. Once Maria accepted to work on my case, she was on it!
    Maria was very pro-active and professional with me, making sure that I provided her with the documentation and information she needed to best serve me, and she acted quickly and responded back to me within hours of any questions I had. Maria communicated clearly with me and gave me the information I needed to make decisions on what actions I wanted to take. In the end, Maria sent a letter to the client and they agreed to settle, so my issue and financial settlement was resolved and I got paid what I was owed. I had a very positive experience in working with Maria and would HIGHLY recommend her.

    The Pels Law Firm superseded my expectations for my litigation needs. Their diverse staff of Senior lawyers and supportive staff ensured my case was handled with expedience and at a reasonable cost. Fortunately their expertise avoided the need for my case to go to trial; however, I had utmost confidence the litigation superiority of The Pels Law Firm would have been successful. I was able to avoid escalating cost by the adept plan to settle. I would use them again and highly recommend The Pels Law Firm. Their free standing law building and free covered parking maintains privacy and social distancing in this COVID19 era.

    Jon Pels is one of the best trial lawyers I have ever met. Skilled strategist, excellent advocate, quick on his feet, and widely respected by judges and administrative decision-makers. An honorable family man, who goes the extra mile for others. You want this lawyer on your side.
