Mr. Lizana & Mrs. Tina Williams and the Law Offices Of Arnold Lizana did not only win my case once, Mr. Lizana SMASHED it for the second time! If you want to WIN...choose Arnold Lizana! Blessings to thee entire staff! (thanks Cinnamon)wink
He addresses my legal problems with a sense of urgency that lets me know that we are in this together. He has always had my back during some difficult years.
Attorney Lizana recently represented me in State Court over a traffic accident. I was pleased with his representation and, aided by his efforts, the matter was resolved with a satisfying outcome. He was professional in his work and displayed a reassuringly calm & cool demeanor, despite some complications that arose during the process. Recommended.
A great lawyer and a fine human being
He represented me in a car accident case against a insurance company represented by a high powered law firm. When he noticed that I was nervous at the mediation, he grabbed my hand, leaned over to me and said, "We got this brother!" His confidence became my confidence and we prevailed. Arnold Lizana is a great lawyer and fine human being.
