Very knowledgeable staff - made the difficult disability application process easy. I would highly recommend them. Everyone was hard working, helpful and respectful. Thank you Fritz, Paul and Linda for all of your help, we truly appreciate it.

I’ve been to a few different lawyers but I must say this is the best one! They handled my disability case and I have nothing but respect and good things to say. They are hardworking, helpful and respectful. I sent a good friend to them for workman’s comp case and it truly made me smile when they took her case because I know that she’s got the best!!

Rick Vasquez and his staff have helped me after a car accident. Since I had many years of working with insurance companies in medical case (as a medical practitioner), I thought I could handle this on my own. I was unable to negotiate through the system and was having to pay my medical bills. Rick and his team have been very helpful in negotiating and settling the matter. They are quick to communicate and honest. Highly recommend!

I was referred by another lawyer who said these were the people who know will treat you right for disability. I had another lawyer before and I have nothing to say about that experience. All I want to say is I am so glad I called. These people are awesome and I could not be happier. Thank you 10 stars.

Mr. Vasquez is a great guy that works hard for his clients, with a family run practice to back him up.

Edson V.


Highly recommended working with Mr. Fritz Vazquez, he was an absolute professional and helped my process speed up from a long 6 to 7 month process to a 4 month process with immigration. Felt like I was dealing with a family member, very helpful and always updating me in what news have come from the government and what I need. Had my paper work done right and the process ran smooth. I will be using his services for a long time.

I did a lot of research and digging before deciding to go with Mr. Vasquez and his team. I was incredibly nervous and had not had a pleasant experience with attorneys in the past. When I got there they were very kind and it was a lot smaller office compared to the big names locally. I met Mr. Vasquez and the first things I noticed was his firm handshake, his smile and eye contact. He didn’t talk down to me. He was honest about the struggle ahead and the time it may take. He showed compassion and was very personable. I am using him to help with my SSI appeal and will happily update my review when I get the results. I would recommend anyone at least talk with him if you’re considering an attorney. Reviews are helpful but going with your gut and realizing every case is different can go a long ways in making it a success.

The crew at this office are efficient, timely and accurate. My first experience was a divorce about 4 years ago and it went smooth. My recent claim for disability went exceptionally well and went exactly as Fritz said it would. Linda is absolutely wonderful to work with and i appreciate her attention to details . If you need legal assistance I highly recommend you give this law office a call , they will not steer you wrong.

These guys are Totally Awesome! They helped me more than they will ever know! At first I didn’t think I had a chance but Rick told me not to worry (but I did) just a little. Although I did not need to he took care of things just like he said he would do! He said August and it was August! I was in great hands with these guys! Just be patient! ! They will take care of you just as they say they will! I will tell all my friends and family that may ever need an attorney to call Rick first!
