Review # 1: They are perfect don’t know anything a but them Clint because… (reviewed by: Mimi Harsiny rating: 1 date published: September 20, 2017)
Review # 2: Excellent experience! Everything was done over the phone! Chris Ackermann did a great job keeping us up to date with our case and was extremely helpful and answered any questions we had. We are very grateful for all the work they put into our case and I highly recommend people to go here if they need an attorney! (reviewed by: Cristal Partida rating: 5 date published: October 8, 2016)
Review # 3: Very attentive & nice. When I’ve emailed or called, Karla & Bob replied promptly. Any questions I’ve had they have been very helpful. I will recommend them to everyone!!! (reviewed by: Natalie Rodriguez rating: 5 date published: August 27, 2016)
Review # 4: Very helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. These guys helped me out by assuring me that I was right that once I served the defendant, I was under no further duty to notify anyone else of the pendant of the case. It turned out to be unnecessary as the default was basically overturned but regardless they charged me nothing for the asistance. (reviewed by: J. H. rating: 5 date published: December 8, 2016)
Review # 5: Chris Ackermann exceeded my expectations for both of my car accident related cases. Not only was he extremely professional but also very personable & friendly. Chris would follow up with me often to make sure everything was going smoothly. Not to mention he went above & beyond & was able to win a very impossible case for me. I have referred a few friends of mine to Chris because his work is honest & he goes the extra mile for his clients. I’m very thankful for the times I’ve had to work with him. I wouldn’t go to anyone else! (reviewed by: Sarah Garcia rating: 5 date published: September 14, 2016)

Review # 2: I have personally known Dan since October 2010 when I was in a serious motorcycle accident after being t-boned by a distracted driver at a major intersection. While recuperating from my injuries, I started doing my research for legal representation online through Google and came across the O’Connor, Runckel & O’Malley law firm webpage. After some intensive personal research with other law firms and gauging how other clients felt, I decided that I wanted Dan to represent me in my case. I reached out to Dan on a Friday morning. What happened next blew me away…Dan didn’t just call me to talk, he came to visit me personally and was on my doorstep Saturday morning to introduce himself and to assure me that his team would do everything possible to help me from a legal standpoint! I have met & consulted with many attorneys in the past but the fact that Dan took the time to make a personal visit, let alone the weekend, made a huge impression on me. There is much to be said about the compassion, integrity and the tenacity of this law firm. With that being said, I chose Dan and his team for my personal injury case and we won! Fast forward three years later…O’Connor, Runckel & O’Malley, LLP are still my go-to guys for anything legal. They are my trusted legal advisor and have done an amazing job on other legal matters that I needed help with besides my personal injury case. They are fully transparent of what could be the potential outcome of a case and how strong they feel about winning the case. What I like about them is that they are straight shooters and will not sugar coat anything. O’Connor, Runckel & O’Malley, LLP will also direct you to other resources if it’s beyond their expertise. I would give these guys a six-star rating if I could! I highly recommend O’Connor, Runckel & O’Malley, LLP and their team for any of your legal needs! (reviewed by: David Chu rating: 5 date published: March 25, 2014)
Review # 3: We hired Dan O’Malley to help with a legal matter and are very pleased.

Review # 1: Thomas, Joseph and their team were great. Not only they are excellent at their work but also at explaining every detail and option throughout the process. I never felt out of the loop or un/misinformed. They left no stone unturned looking for the best outcome. Last but no least was their humanity and kindness during my recovery especially in the occasions they had to listen my recollection of the events and the pain I was going through. It can be a very intimate and personal experience so it helps to know they care without judgement. I really hope I will never need their services again (LOL) but if that were to happen I would not even bother to look anywhere else. (reviewed by: Joaquin Quilez-Marin rating: 5 date published: September 25, 2017)
Review # 2: Mr Joe Appel and his team worked long and hard on our case. Great communication and knows what they’re doing. We put our trust in Mr Appel and his team and we were not disappointed. If you’re looking for an attorney who has his clients best interest at heart, look no further. (reviewed by: Darany Le rating: 5 date published: January 25, 2017)
Review # 3: I found Joe Appel and his staff to be very knowledgeable, understanding and friendly. I would highly recommend them for your legal needs. I first found The Appel Law Firm on Yelp and there were good reviews there, secondly I had interviewed several other attorneys before meeting with Joe and found the other attorneys to be very pushy and over bearing. Joe was a refreshing change to what I had encountered in the world of attorneys. He helped me with my case and resolved it in the fastest way possible without having to go to court. Hopefully, I won’t find myself in need of his services again, however if I do I know I will go to him again. (reviewed by: Kathy Cuthbertrating: 5 date published: December 12, 2013)
Review # 4: TLDR: Joe Appel et al. are awesome and will protect you from the ugly underbelly that is worker’s-compensation litigation. I was fortunate enough to have Joe recommended to me by a family member, and wise enough to ask him for help. I got hurt at work and ended up in the hospital. Immediately after my accident, my employer and worker’s comp. insurance contact were cooperative with the doctor’s recommendations; the facade quickly faded, when it became clear that my case would not have an easy, quick, or cheap resolution. I began receiving letters that – given my emotional (let alone physical) state – were downright mean, claiming all sorts of failures on my part to seek appropriate care. Then my claims started being denied. Then they stopped paying for everything; even after their own doctor wrote several letters saying it was obvious that I needed further care. It was a very scary time for me: I was healing and dealing with having a long-term injury, could not return to work, was reliant on their assistance (disability payments), and then – when they decided to stop paying me – I had no source of income and there was no foreseeable end to this whole fiasco. Enter Joe Appel and his team. I will remember my first encounter with Joe because of the frank nature with which he handles business, and the way in which he was able to see through all the crap (pardon) and show me my options. It was obvious that he had been doing this a long time and understood the nature of the beast that I was grappling with, and his complete confidence was reassuring. I officially asked Joe to represent me and my interests the following day, and that decision has made my life so. much. better. As my lawyer, he was the point of contact for *all* correspondence with the worker’s compensation adjusters, their lawyers, the court and it’s administrators, my employer, their lawyers, the outside safety-regulatory agency that had gotten involved, their lawyers… in real-life terms, it meant that I didn’t have to deal directly with anyone; all the negativity that had been flooding my mailbox, inbox, voicemail, etc. stopped. That in-and-of-itself was worth the cost of admission. Everything that happened was explained to me in non-lawyer speak; there was no guess-work as to what this particular letter meant, and he knew what the motives behind particular posturing meant, etc. Basically, because he is so good at what he does, I didn’t have to be. He laid things out in layman’s terms, gave me my options without bias, and did what I asked. In addition to the larger benefits of having someone go to bat for me, there were smaller details that were equally appreciated. I often had questions and would shoot off a quick (or lengthy) email or call their office, and I *always* got a prompt response; I even got replies after hours and on weekends (I’m not trying to set false/improper expectations, just highlighting a part of my experience that made me feel my case was important). I often spoke with Kathy (one of their amazing assistants), and she was always exceptionally sweet and helpful, making sure I got what I needed. Everything I needed paperwork-wise was provided, and I got timely reminders of things I needed to do or meetings I needed to attend. The most surprising thing that I didn’t know at the outset was how long these things take to resolve; my case took over a year and I’m pretty sure I got off “easy,” as these things go. But the whole time, Joe, Tom, Kathy, and everyone else, were looking out for my best interests, fighting so I didn’t have to, allowing me to focus on healing and getting on with my life. And if that wasn’t enough, when all was said and done, Joe got me some money out of the deal. Now, I can see what doctors I want, when I want, till I am satisfied that I’m healed – physically *and* mentally. There is also something to be said about having a financial cushion to allow you get back to life at your own pace, and the feeling of security this provides… icing on the cake. (reviewed by: Bradley Dunham rating: 5 date published: March 13, 2016)
Review # 5: The experience level in their specialty at Appel Law Firm, where brothers Joe and Michael share a long standing partnership, combined with the dedication of the team – attorneys and staff – is a rare find. On recommendation of a trusted source I contacted the Appel Law Firm. Joe Appel accepted and conscientiously worked on my case and led the case to a settlement. The Appel Law Firm was always right on the ball. I highly recommend. (reviewed by: Suzanna L rating: 5 date published: September 15, 2014)

Review # 1: Just phoned this law firm and the person answering was very unprofessional. She answered The phone with ‘Yeah’. I asked if I had reached the law firm and she stated, ‘ Yep’.

Review # 3: There are NOT enough words to describe how much i adore and appreciate every single person at this law firm, especially Mr. Gillin!! After my husbands accident, the firm worked diligently, day and night to make sure we got the best outcome. Even while in the hospital, they had a investigator visit my husband to collect detailed information. who does that?! GJEL does that. Do not hesitate to call the office for their help!! you will get results!! you will be updated all the time with the status of your case!! you WILL be satisfied!! heaven forbid anything happens again, but if it does, i know who to call. Thank you GJEL for all of your past and current support!! (reviewed by: Robin Rabosea rating: 5 date published: September 22, 2016)
Review # 4: I called in the morning and spok to Meredith who took my information and told me their private investigator would call me back. He did an hour later. I’m appalled at the conversation that I just had with him. He was extremely condescending in the way he spoke to me and barely let me get a word in edge wise. Being that my situation has to do with a car accident and deals with insurance I have to file a personal injury claim before they accept liability. You’d think your lawyer would be the one who helps you deal with that. NO THEY WONT the jerk on the phone tells me we won’t do anything until they accept liability. Thanks for nothing. Definitely call them if you enjoy being talked to like a child or better yet an idiot! (reviewed by: Brianna Deisler-Hicks rating: 1 date published: August 29, 2016)
Review # 5: Both Andy and Jim have been phenomenal to work with and they made a difficult time much easier to deal with. Their diligence and responsibility allowed me to focus on healing rather than having to worry about the legal situation of my accident. I would recommend them to anyone who has been in an accident – you need someone like this in your corner. (reviewed by: Jd Burress rating: 5 date published: September 21, 2016)
