Elk Grove & Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer: Client Testimonials

"I was seven months pregnant (when I got in a car accident). It was a little stressful with the whole insurance situation. John M. O'Brien was very honest and straightforward and I was really happy with the results. I had nothing to do with the insurance; it was a very stress-free, easy process."

Yesenia D.

"My husband and I had flown from San Diego and we landed at the Sacramento Airport. In approximately 11 minutes after we left the airport in a rental car, we got hit by a vehicle. I had a neck surgery and two foot surgeries. John is absolutely incredible and the staff there is very responsive."

Julia H.

"My insurance wasn't really giving me any advice or anything. It was turning into a nightmare; I didn't know what to do. I called John and what caught my attention is that he was worried about me, not about his fees; that's when I said: 'This is the guy I am going with.'"

Miguel F.

"My daughter and I were in a nasty car accident. I called John since he knows exactly how the whole thing works and he helped us handle everything. John's staff is extremely professional, and they can handle everything from beginning to end. "

Rob M.

"Christian was in an accident, and his fingers were amputated. I had bills coming left and right. John M. O'Brien made us feel very confident. The insurance companies were saying that we weren't covered. John worked and communicated with us until we got the call that the injury was covered."

Christian's Mom

"My daughter was in a car accident and needed intensive care for seven days, so the medical bills were astronomical. John worked directly with the hospitals and negotiated to reduce the bills. It was such a relief that they were able to take care of that for us and settle our case."

Kerry's Mom

"I lost three fingers in an ATV accident. Originally, the insurance company told us that my injury would not be covered. It took about a year of persistence on John M. O'Brien's part to go ahead and dig deep and find out that it was ultimately covered. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney."


"John held 2 cases for us where he could have settled or given up easily. He didn't. He kept working on them and achieved a maximum settlement for us. We were extremely pleased."

Susan O.

"In 2011 I was injured in a car accident...As I received medical treatment I had to pay for everything out of pocket and it was a hardship. A friend referred me to John. The consultation went really great and I felt confident with him handling my case... Mr. O'Brien was always available."

Andrea A.

"I was riding my bike in 2013 and a car hit me. I had a compound fracture and I shattered my tibia in 10 spots. I was referred to John by a friend and he came to our house to meet with me... It really helped me to hire John to take care of all the legal [aspect of things] and to be my advocate."

Elizabeth W.

"I was in a car accident, and I was injured. John M. O'Brien helped me out a lot. Anyone that is scared to call a lawyer or thinks that it's going to cost too much money has to know that you will not get anywhere close to what John can help you get. He takes the burden off of your shoulders."


"I was in a car that lost control and ran into the mountains. The hospitals asked me to pay a lot of medical bills, and my insurance didn't compensate all of them. John M. O'Brien made sure that, in the end, everything was completely covered. They broke the process down and made it really easy. "

Kerry M.

"After the car accident, I had three bulging discs in my neck that were pressing on my spinal cord causing many problems. The insurance company was very defensive so I went online and found John M. O'Brien's website. I felt comfortable with the first call. They're very good and professional people."
