Review by Rimsh

I was working as a translator when I was injured overseas. This law firm handled my Defense Base Act claim. Everyone I worked with was polite, respectful, professional and very knowledgeable. I got answers to my questions and always felt safe and cared for by my lawyer and the staff. I got a great result and am recommending this firm to translators and other contractors injured in Afghanistan, Iraq or anywhere overseas.


Review by Daniel

I cannot say enough great things about attorneys Clifford Mermell and David Pacheco who handled my Defense Base Act case. These lawyers had my back all the way through the case. They kept me informed and they actually educated me as I was lost when it came to this claim under the Defense Base Act. I am indebted to these lawyers and their staff who helped me each step of the way and got me a result that was beyond my expectations. I am recommending them to my co workers and friends who are still working overseas and to anyone needing a high quality Defense Base Act lawyer.
