    Braid took on a very tough Insurance company on my behalf. Their client was 100% at fault, but they still tried to stonewall and low ball me on a settlement. Through patience and perseverance, Braid got me a great settlement. I highly … More recommend him.

    I have known Braid Pezzaglia and his firm's associates for a couple years now. They handle personal injury cases including car accidents. They are easy to talk with and are responsive. I feel like they have a genuine interest in their … More clients as people as well as the matters they work on. I highly recommend anyone to consult with Braid if they have an injury case to discuss.

    I am from Japan. I was in Silicon Valley / Santa Clara County with my husband and family for two years. My husband works for a Japanese company and was on a temporary business assignment. I had occasion to consult with attorney Braid Pezzaglia. … More I enjoyed working with him. Although English is not my first language, he is easy to communicate with and takes time to explain details and reasoning. I always felt he had a genuine interest not only as to my matter but also with me and my family on a personal level. I highly recommend anyone to consult with Mr. Pezzaglia if they have legal needs.

If I am ever in another situation where a lawyer is needed I wouldn’t hesitate to call Braid Pezzaglia again! He is a great lawyer and he proved it! His communication is great he takes time out of his day to give you advice I’ve dealt with different lawyers and Braid is the only one that genuinely listens and tries to help you out even if he isn’t getting a job out it I would highly recommend him. Hands down I wouldn’t even consider anyone else.

Attorney Braid Pezzaglia comes highly recommended just from a phone call his advice alone helped me to get a prompt response back in a situation of concern in less than 24 hours which was a huge ordeal for me. Just the brief encounter and conversation I had with Braid he was getting the job done by asking the right questions and interested in assisting my situation. Again, Attorney Braid you are one of the Best in Silicone Valley thanks for your assistance and generosity!!!!! Greatly appreciated!!!!

My significant other was in a car accident 2 years ago and has physically not been the same since. Yesterday the case has been closed with a positive result. Braid and his assistant Aida were amazing over these past 2 years. They were always in contact with us. They were patient with us, my significant other does not speak any english so they were more than willing to accommodate him. They were always clear on what they needed from us and never rushed us which i was happy for since I was the main point of contact and with a full time job could not always get home in time to call them back. My significant other has been through so much since his accident it was nice to know that Braid and Aida were someone he did not have to worry about because they were looking out for him. Thank you Braid and Aida for all the help and patience you gave Ernesto.

I was injured in a bike accident. The driver was sitting in his car and opened his car door on me as I rode by. Ended up at the ER with 6 internal and 6 external stitches in my neck, an inch away from my carotid artery, a sore wrist which a MRI revealed to be a slight tendon tear and abrasions on my knee and hand, plus a sore shoulder. The driver’s GEICO insurance tried to refute my claim saying I was 50% at fault for not looking to see if a driver was in the car, even though the police report said he was in violation since I had the right of way. I initially contacted a larger law firm I saw advertised on TV. They referred me to Braid.

Braid was great. He told me these things might take a while, but to be patient. GEICO initially offered to only pay my medical expenses, then a little later expenses plus $7K. Braid advised me to wait because he was sure he could negotiate more. Eventually he negotiated a significant settlement, much more than I ever expected. I highly recommend him

I am so glad Braid represented me in my car accident. I had not considered using an attorney but I was not able to do yoga, hike or lead my former active lifestyle, medical bills were piling up and insurance companies were offering little compensation.

I interviewed several attorneys and was impressed with Braid’s genuine desire to help. He provided excellent service from the beginning of our first meeting to the ending settlement. Braid was always reachable and returned calls/ emails promptly.

Braid is highly knowledgeable, readily answered my questions and explained options clearly so I could understand the process. Braid impressed me with his hands on approach. He gets into the details of your case, quickly reviewing the documents and presenting a plan of action. He is realistic, communicates well and handled all negotiations with insurances and providers so I could focus on healing.

Ultimately, we got a fair settlement. I am thankful he handled my case and highly recommend him.

When you need a really good lawyer in a tough and complex traffic accident situation then I highly recommend Law Offices of Braid Pezzaglia.

Before I chose Braid’s office, I had done extensive research about legal firms specializing in motorcycle accidents in the San Jose and SF Bay Area locations. I shortlisted a handful of them and talked to them before I made my final decision. I am glad I chose the Law Offices of Braid Pezzaglia.

Braid is a very sharp, extremely knowledgeable legal professional, can assess tough situations quickly, can call lies in an instant, has kept me sane and the other parties involved accountable. He is very responsive and even though he has many clients at a time he never failed to make me feel I am on top of his list.

I highly recommend Braid and his office. A big THANK YOU Braid from me and my family

– Owen W., 4/10/2020

I found Braid through AVVO when my father found himself on the receiving end of an auto insurance claim. I consulted with several attorneys through AVVO, and he stood out as one of the few who was willing to take time to listen, advise, and offer actionable and detailed information even though I had not engaged his services yet. I sensed he was unpretentious yet extremely knowledgeable and had the patient disposition to work well with my elderly parents.

I was not disappointed. Mr. Pezzaglia skillfully guided us (with me out-of-state) through the legal maze, thoroughly explaining our options and working with the insurance attorney behind-the-scenes to negotiate a reasonable settlement. It gave me great confidence to know my parents were receiving ethical and highly experienced professional assistance in their case. He responded to communications promptly, and his fees are quite reasonable. Without a doubt, he has my highest recommendation.

Braid is a great lawyer and helped me with a personal injury claim. He was able to settle my claim and we received the maximum compensation possible! He is very smart, approachable, and always takes the time to answer any questions. I’m happy to have found Braid and I will always use his services if need be.

– Tyler D., 12/13/2018

First, I’d like to thank Braid and his team for getting me a great settlement for my personal injury case. They made it very easy for me throughout the whole process always keeping me abreast of the updates in terms a normal person understands. They were aggressive in dealing with the insurance companies and maximized the settlement. Braid cam highly recommended and without a doubt I’d use him again.

Atty Braid Pezzaglia truly cares about helping you in the best possible way. The process is so seamless; his legal assistant, Aida, is so thorough and helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who needs legal advice. He is a 5 on a scale of 1 to 5, 5 being the highest.

– Rebecca Ruby K.

Thanks for helping my case, you are the best of the best law firm for me, in my case. You are so nice to see me, easy to setup an appointment, easy to do all paperwork, easy to talk to, and no worry about getting final done at the best. I am very happy have Braid Pezzagia helping me with that case, not another office.

– Cuong Quoc D.

Braid was professional, friendly and welcoming. He really knew what he was talking about and answered all our questions. I highly recommend checking out Braid Pezzaglia if you need an attorney. Our case was very complex and complicated, we were seriously injured. Braid will fight you case and will negotiate a good settlement. He filed for uninsured motorist claim against my own insurance. His secretary Ida is a great help as well.

– Luciano C., 11/22/2017

Me & my family got into a vehicle accident and needed a lawyer to handle our case. A friend recommended Aida and Braid who assisted & represented us thru out the case. They consistently update us on what was going on and at the end gave us good result. I am very happy & satisfied with their service and I highly recommend them in case you need help. They have a very good customer service especially Aida who is there everytime I had a question or need help with. Overall – I am a very satisfied customer and be asking for their service again if i’ll be needing in near future.

My wife had a slip and fall in a grocery store. We took Mr. Pezzaglia’s help to deal with store and their insurance. Once they took over we had no worries. They dealt with doctors’ offices and insurance very professionally. His assistant Aida Gatchalian was of great help and was always available when ever we had any question. Case was handled to our satisfaction.

– Sadhu J., 8/25/2017

Braid and Aida made a very difficult and unfortunate event in my life easier to handle, I was in good hands and knew they were here to help me with the utmost importance to my case. I’m so thankful for them. I recommend them highly.

– Karey J., 8/24/2017

My mom and I got in a major rear end vehicle accident and decided that we needed a lawyer for our injuries. We chose Braid to represent us in our case. In our initial meeting, we felt that Braid was very informative and detailed about the overall process. Braid and Aida followed up with us consistently and kept us up to date during the whole procedure. Aida is a sweetheart and was very helpful if we had any questions or concerns. The process was seamless and they exceeded our expectations. We couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer to represent us.

– Jasmine F., 8/23/2017

I was faced with a legal issue that was reasonably simple, but which I recognized as possibly becoming far worse if it wasn’t taken care of. In the past when I’ve had issues like this I’ve found it very difficult to find a lawyer who would focus on getting what I needed done without creating unnecessary complications and expense.

Braid Pezzaglia very quickly assessed the situation and acted correctly, honestly and diligently to help me with the issue. He definitely went the extra mile for me, but he didn’t drag me into a lot of unnecessary churn. The people I was dealing with were a difficult lot and his efforts were the deciding factor in a satisfactory outcome.

Not only would I recommend this firm in the future, but I will use them for any other legal matters I need addressed in future without hesitation. Even if Braid is an exceptional example of the people who work there (and it wouldn’t surprise me if that were the case) he sets a standard of above average service that reflects well on the firm as a whole.

Braid Pezzaglia helped settle an insurance matter, and he was attentive and responsive every step of the way. Communication was clear, and he made every effort to keep me in the loop whenever developments arose. They had a helpful Vietnamese woman to translate whenever my parents had difficulty understanding some legal terminology.

– Kevin P.

When my mother-in-law was injured on a slip and fall case, the insurance company only offered to pay for her medical expenses. Braid immediately took over and guided us through the case to give my mom over $75,000 in damages. Braid not only represent us as an attorney, but also treated us as family. My mother-in-law is in her 70s and shattered her elbow and Braid was there every step of the way! if you’re looking for the right personal injury attorney with the right personal touch that would be Braid!

– Keith, 10/26/2016

I spoke with Mr. Braid Pezzaglia yesterday regarding my concerns about my Auto Insurance Claim (stolen) and possible Bad Faith treatment on the part of the Insurance company. I am in the Modesto, Ca. area and his firm covers my area. He was very knowledgeable and straightforward in answering my questions and I felt completely at ease. I appreciate the time he spent helping me understand my situation and the things I should consider in order to decide on hiring a lawyer. I would highly recommend Braid to anyone in need of a good lawyer.
