Our office, Gabbay Architects, practicing in Beverly Hills for the last forty-two years had a very unfair legal case that was dragging for over three years. Our insurance company had hired a very reputable firm, that after over two years of exchange with other attorneys did not reach to any conclusion.
Therefore, our legal counsel was switched by the insurance company to another well-known defense lawyer to continue. All their sessions of “mediation” hit a concrete wall with no settlement agreement, while inflating the attorney hours! Undersigned, becoming frustrated of the situation, met Lisa Simantob and asked her if she could review the case and give us some advice. In just a couple of weeks, everything turned upside down. It was a tornado!
Ms. Simantob discovered so many cases of wrong-doing, malpractice and conflicts of interest, that all lawyers of the opposing party, including the Plaintiff changed their attitude, and came to the negotiating table to settle the case, with much lower demands.
Ms. Simantob, is a real fighter. She is rough when needed and fair when it must be. All this attitude comes along a very deep knowledge of the codes and regulations of her profession.
