Client Testimonial

The event was in February of 2006, our daughter was in a public park with some school friends from kindergarten. A dog of another family was on a leash, older dog, and because of a contention with other dogs the dog was barking and inadvertently attacked our daughter.

There was a lot of trauma to the event and our daughter was worked on overnight by the plastic surgeon.

I got to the computer and I looked online at the various law firms in San Diego County that specialized in injury and dog bites.

I think I spoke with Greg at the firm who handled it very professionally, very empathically, took a lot of information. I got the sense that there was speed, dispatch, humanity and it wasn’t just business as usual, there’s an immediacy that Mike, he’s the father of four children, and they’re around the ages of our children, and you can sense his decency and compassion and it’s like working with your next door neighbor on a legal matter. I felt the familiarity, the trust he’ll return a phone call immediately.

Nothing hurts as severely as watching your child, particularly a young child, have a physical attack like this that is nearly life threatening.

Happily, I would use the firm again for a variety of legal needs. I trust the firm, I think that they bring professionalism and ethics to every question, so I endorse them strongly.

Basically I was on a bicycle training ride and was heading west on Washington Avenue. A gentleman opened his car door without looking to make sure traffic was clear and as I tried to swerve to miss his door he was coming out so hard he caught me in the side of the bike. When he did that, of course, I came to an abrupt stop and it knocked me into the traffic that I was riding alongside of, and pin-balled me off of the side of the car in the traffic lane you know.

Severe trauma to lower back where there was inflammation, swelling, as well as some things with my knee that had tightened up and had swollen up so at that point I turned the damages over to my insurance and just made the claim through my insurance. Then I sought Estey & Bomberger’s help for the physical damage to me because I was training for a 100 mile mountain bike race in Colorado that was 6 weeks away and I wouldn’t have been able to compete in that had I not had the physical therapy and so I went to see Mike and he said, ‘Look all your worries are done, I’m going to take care of everything. You go train, you take care of yourself, get better, do what you need to do at the doctor. And you don’t have to worry about a single thing with the insurance company any longer.’

A couple of months later they called and said everything’s been resolved, are you okay with this, and it was more than what I expected. Being able to get back into training and not having to worry about dealing with the insurance company, and knowing that I could get the physical therapy I needed to get back on the bike went a long way in that.

I would absolutely recommend them. If I come up with anything else like this again, knock on wood that I won’t, 100% I’d call them first.

I was training for my third Ironman. My friend Jim and I were riding from Carlsbad down to La Jolla, which was under construction, and my front wheel lodged into a divot and it stopped me, and, because I was going about 20 mph, I launched over my handlebars and hit the K rail.

My injuries were: mild brain injury, fractured temple, broke my cheekbone in two places, and really messed up my right shoulder.

Mike Bomberger was there for me from Day 1.

The construction company was held accountable, which was my number one concern. I mean, settling and getting a payout was awesome, I’m grateful for that, very grateful.

I definitely recommend Estey & Bomberger.

-Rachelle Smith

Dear Mr. Apfeld,

Please allow me to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for providing me with the very best representation possible. In managing my case you demonstrated an unremitting professional competence. I was very well pleased with everything.

Thank you again.

-Than W

I was very satisfied in regard to the attorney’s handling of my case. I admit that when I started the process, I had low expectations, but I didn’t experience any frustrations or inconveniences. I am delighted with the outcome!

-Steven B

I was extremely satisfied. I never thought we would settle the case for so much. Everybody at the office treated us well. Every time we called, they handled whatever situation was happening. Greg and Kirsten were the most helpful. We were kept up-to-date and the staff answered all of our questions when we had them. Someone always called me back right away when I would leave a message. If someone asked me for a lawyer, I would recommend Estey & Bomberger.

Our family was hit with tragedy when a driver hit and killed my elderly aunt as she was crossing the crosswalk in front of her home. Needless to stay the entire family was devastated by this unexpected incident that left my other elderly aunt without a companion and a caregiver. The driver did stop right after the incident, and police report was made, however no charges were filed, and the family was at a loss of what to do next. Because my family is first generation in the United States, and being humble people from Mexico no one in the family wanted to go after the driver for criminal charges, since the incident was deemed an accident. However there were funeral expenses to pay for, and because my other aunt was left without her caregiver and life long companion she suffered so much emotionally that she ended up hospitalized with severe depression, and eventually dependent on 24 hour health care, with expenses that continued to pile up and no means to support them.

At first I thought it would be easy enough to file a claim with the driver’s insurance, because the family only wanted what was just, and still had several reservations about filing a claim in the first place, however upon learning more about dealing with insurance companies I was referred to Attorney Bomberger. He had recently settled a case for another friend of mine who was a victim of a drunk driver as she crossed the street. With the first phone call to the attorney’s office I knew we were in good hands. I made the phone call in the morning and had an appointment for my free consultation the next afternoon. During the consultation Attorney Bomberger showed not only genuine concern for the tragedy our family was going through, but also gave us solid advice on what our options were. Because he works on contingency the family decided to hire Atty. Bomberger, in hopes that he would be able to handle all the details of the case, specifically dealing with the driver’s insurance company.

From day one Atty. Bomberger and his team always treated us with respect and the utmost professionalism. There was a bilingual legal assistant who accompanied Atty. Bomberger to my aunt’s home to speak with her in person, and later at the nursing home she ended up in. During the course of the case all my phone calls were returned, all my questions were answered, and most importantly I knew I had a dependable lawyer in our corner not only doing the job to get paid, but doing the best to get what the family was entitled to, to cover all the expenses incurred from the accident. The office was always in contact with me, giving me updates on the case, and basically checking in on the well-being of my aunt. I truly felt the attorney and his team went above and beyond what was expected from an attorney’s office. The attorney didn’t treat us like just another case number, he treated our family with respect, and always made us feel as if we were the only case he was handling. The case eventually was resolved, and a settlement was obtained not only for my aunt, but also for the surviving siblings. Attorney Bomberger and his team of experts did a stellar job with our case. Their professionalism, expertise, and communication are unsurpassed, and I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need. I was lucky to have been referred to Attorney Bomberger, and will be in his debt forever.

-Sandra T

I was very satisfied; they handled (my case) quickly; they treated me well. All the time you guys called me and updated me. You guys are great and thanks for your help.

-Kenneth P

I lost my husband and sole provider as the result of him falling out of a tree. I was distraught and devastated. I felt that it was the tree owner’s responsibility to make things right. Unfortunately, the insurance company did not agree with me.

That is when I hired Steve Estey of Estey & Bomberger to help me. Steve, his staff, and team of investigators quickly investigated my case and argued my case to the insurance company. That is when the insurance company decided to pay to me the full amount of their policy limits. I could not be more pleased with their results.

I would definitely refer my friends and family to Estey & Bomberger if they ever needed any legal help.

-Nhanh N

I was very impressed with Estey & Bomberger. They were always professional, courteous and caring. My accident claim had challenges and obstacles but despite this, they were able to obtain a satisfactory settlement in a short time frame. I have recommended them to several friends and colleagues and will continue to do so.

-Nancy W

I am very pleased with the level of response, legal advice and proactive nature and conduct of my case. You were able to secure the maximum amount from the insurance company based on my coverage, and without your firm’s involvement I do not believe Allstate would have agreed to the maximum.

Greg Apfeld and your firm fully meet my expectations and were always responsive and provided consistent follow-up despite the longevity of my case. I very much feel that your office kept me up to date on the developments of my case.

I am very pleased with the outcome and the services your firm provided and it was a delight to work with Greg, he is a professional and a great asset to your firm.

Thank you again Greg and the Team at Estey & Bomberger for your assistance with my case, I will certainly recommend your firm should I know anyone in need of assistance in the future.

-John M

I was very satisfied with Mike Bomberger, his staff and the results of my case. Mike won $3,300,000.00 for me.

Before I hired Mr. Bomberger, I had hired another attorney to handle my case. This firm treated me like I was a bother instead of a valued client. This firm did not return my calls or answer my questions. They did not seem to care me or my pain. I grew tired of their poor service.

Finally, I had enough and fired my first attorney. I then called Estey & Bomberger. The day that I called them, they came to my home and listened to my problems and genuinely cared about me and my situation. Mike and his staff took the time to explain to me the challenges of my case and their plan to help me. Over the next several months, they helped me with medical treatment, constantly kept me up to date with the status of my case and answered all of my questions. Every time that I called, I was greeted by a kind voice and had my questions answered. I can not say enough about the terrific staff at Estey & Bomberger. I would definitely recommend Estey & Bomberger to my friends and family.

I was hit by a drunk driver while riding my bike. As a result, I broke two ribs and had to be transported to the hospital by an ambulance. My health insurance company paid for my medical bills and I then began to deal with the auto insurance companies involved in this accident. My health insurance company was demanding to be repaid and the auto insurance companies were not taking responsibility. After a short time, I felt that the insurance companies were not on my side. That is when I hired Estey & Bomberger to handle my case. My attorney took over and handled everything for me from start to finish. My only job was to get well. I could not be more pleased with their service and the result of my case. I would highly recommend Estey & Bomberger to my friends and family.

-James M

I just wanted to thank you and all your associates for all your help. You have a great team.

-Steve S

Unfamiliar and unsure of filing a possible lawsuit, my first meeting with Michael Bomberger put me at ease. His personable and compassionate personality was exuded not only that first day, but throughout our two year client/attorney relationship. Michael and the other members of his firm made a difficult and stressful period in my life feasible, and for that I will always be grateful.

-Allison V

I want to thank Mr. Bomberger for the wonderful result he obtained for me in our case regarding the death of my son. The prior attorney that handled the case had the case for over one and one-half years. During that time, the hospital did not make any effort to settle the case. After Mr. Bomberger became involved, Kaiser Hospital immediately tried to settle the case. The settlement that Mr. Bomberger obtained was three times what my prior attorney said she thought we could get for settlement. I greatly appreciate the hard work and attention that Mr. Bomberger gave to my family and me on this case. I have already referred another person to his office because of the result they obtained for me and my family.

-Antonio San Nicholas

Up until this date my experience with the Law Offices of Estey & Bomberger has been an extremely pleasant one. It was very obvious to me from the beginning of my case that the attorneys and their staff were very well educated and prepared to handle my case. I was always treated with respect and courteousness. The medical treatment that I received from the medical experts they referred me to was outstanding. Even though I will never be the same, as I was before the accident, I know that their experience made a significant difference in my recovery. They always knew where to send me to depending on my medical needs. Sincerely, without hesitation I would highly recommend them. Due to my memory problems, the continuous assistance of their office with scheduling my medical appointments made a significant difference. I don’t know what I would have done without this help. I believe that the highest possible outcome was attained in my case. I saw firsthand that Mr. Estey worked very hard on my case. His firm spent much money on experts to help prove what injuries I suffered. The fees that Estey & Bomberger received on my case were well deserved because they continued to work very hard on my case until the very end.

-Ozziel Huerta

I was extremely pleased with the service I received from Estey Bomberger. Their entire staff is very knowledgeable and worked very hard for me to win my case. Stephen and his staff always kept me updated on the status of my case and responded to my questions immediately. I would recommend this law firm, and have, to anyone.

-Laura Shackelford

I just wanted to thank you and all your associates for all your help. You have a great team.

-Steve Suyat

I wanted to write a letter to thank you for your promptness in handling my case. It is said that customer service is imperative in this day and age. If that is so, you are at the first class level of service.
