I couldn't be happier with my service from Torres & Haroldson. I worked specifically with Victor and Angie. They made this process very easy on me. They were professional yet I felt like a friend not a client. I would use them again if I needed, but I would also recommend them to anyone I knew in need of an amazing lawyer.

Peter is a top of the line dude! I had a last minute situation that was very stressful and important for me. And he handled it quickly,professionally and willingly. He was very fair priced,responded almost immediately and was all around a nice genuine person. I would recommend over and over and plan to use him again if court problems come up in the future.

First of let me start by saying, I absolutely love Angie!! She was my main contact during the process and she made it way less stressful than I thought it would be. They found the man that hit me in order to serve him out of state and still settled before that court date. I have sent my son there for his lawsuit and would recommend them to anyone and everyone.

Victor Torres takes on difficult cases that result with a positive outcome. I was involved in a motorcycle accident and the only witness was a homeless person. Needless to say, he was difficult to find. Victor sought him out and made sure the truth was told. If you are seeking a lawyer and firm that upholds honesty, values integrity, and truly cares about the people they represent, look no further. Without reservation, I would highly recommend Victor and the team that supports him to anyone seeking exceptional representation and council.

I fell in a grocery store and Mr.Torres and Angie have been absolutely wonderful. They explained everything to me and were in communication with me all through the lawsuit. I got a wonderful settlement and can't say enough about how wonderful they all are. Thank you.
