Check Out What Our Clients Are Saying

I wanted to take a moment to express my appreciation and sincere gratitude for the outstanding working performed by your team regarding the property damage portion of my claim against Allstate and the settlement thereof.

It is hard to imagine that in the weeks prior to hiring W&Y to represent my claim, I had just about given up hope-having been either turned down by, or recommended against pursuing litigation by four other property damage/personal injury law firms in the Los Angeles area. I owe Rocco Avellini a debt of gratitude for putting me in touch with Lisa LeMarbre and your law firm.

I know we are still waiting for a reply regarding the Personal Injury claim, but I wanted to make sure I acknowledge the outstanding work of Patricia Mascaro on the property damage portion of my claim.

Specifically, Patricia provided:

  1. Expertise in the law and my rights by focusing on the facts of the case and her previous experiences both with Allstate and other clients who have had similar claims in the past
  2. Courteous and responsive customer service on many occasions when I was not sure which direction to take. For example, when Allstate sent diminished value information well below Rocco’s assessment and a check to my address despite being told to send correspondence to your office.
  3. An aggressive, “can do” personality and attitude when dealing with the insurance company to make sure that I received all the compensation I was entitled.

The successful results with regard to settlement of the property damage, speaks for itself.

I have the fortune to work with many high-caliber individuals in my line of business, and it is always a pleasure to acknowledge, publicly, the outstanding professionalism of an individual.

Richard S.

I’m very comfortable with your “hands on” approach with your cases. I actually have 3 1st cousins who are attorneys, and I prefer to go with someone with your style. Thanks for staying in touch, and look forward to proceeding further with YOU!


It was GREAT news. I have been so pleased with the service and professionalism your office has shown me and my daughter. The situation had been particulary difficult for me because I so much wanted to make her whole again and was not sure how I was going to make that happen.

I absolutely love Jules, please tell her thank you for me.


In October, 2008, Wattel & York was retained to assist a couple in recovering the fair market value for their recreational vehicle that was destroyed in a fire. It all began in August, 2008, when the clients attempted to sell their 1989 Auroco recreational vehicle. In order to increase the visibility of the recreational vehicle the clients parked it overnight in an empty lot on the side of a busy intersection. When the clients went to check on the recreational vehicle the next morning they discovered that a fire had ignited on the interior causing major damage to the cabin and seats. The clients submitted a claim to their insurance carrier.

The clients’ insurance carrier denied their claim, alleging fraud, and embarked on an investigation. The insurance carrier retained counsel, informally interviewed the clients and hired a “fire expert”. Wattel & York was retained to protect the clients’ rights. Wattel & York was by their clients’ sides for the duration of the investigation which included an examination of the clients under oath and retaining their own fire expert to prepare a report, the results of which the clients” insurance carrier eventually acknowledged were correct.

Fifteen months after the loss of their recreational vehicle the clients’ insurance carrier made an offer. The offer was less than half of the clients’ claimed damages. Wattel & York filed suit on the clients’ behalf claiming damages for the fair market value of the recreational vehicle at the time of the fire, loss of use, breach of contract, bad faith and attorney fees.

The case was mediated quickly and resolved for the clients at nearly three times the amount the insurance carrier had originally offered.

I was very satisfied with the staff at Wattel & York and the outcome of my case. Everyone was very courteous and Mr. Wattel was wonderful. He had no problem getting back to me in a timely fashion and would answer all my questions in layman’s terms, so I would be able to understand them. Wattel & York has handled two cases for me and done a phenomenal job. If anything ever happened to me or my friends I would definitely refer them to Wattel & York.

Karla S.

I love you guys. Dave Wattel was outstanding. He is a real go getter. He did his homework and was always very well prepared. Dave always took my calls and made himself readily available to me. He was very professional and I’m just glad we didn’t have to go up against him.
