The staff here is so helpful and knowledgeable. Tim Ryan has also taken the time to listen to me after a bad car accident and helped me and my mom through the aftermath. Great place that I would use again.

Britt Vickner

This has been a very difficult year for me, but Timothy J. Ryan & Associates helped me get through. I got hurt on the job last last year that caused me to miss a lot of work, then I got into a car accident that re-injured what had healed and left me with new injuries. The accident was the fault of the person that I was in the car with, but I figured I’d call a personal injury attorney anyway. Tim Ryan reviewed my situation and let me know that I could still receive compensation for my medical bills and possibly pain and suffering. After 6 months, they had an offer from the insurance company that they wanted to turn down, but wanted to speak with me about it first. I thought it was enough but they were adamant that they could get more. They ended up getting me double the amount of the initial offer. If I did not have that settlement money, I don’t know how my family and I would have kept our home. I lost my job this year and my wife does not make much. Thank you to everyone at Timothy J. Ryan & Associates. Your compassion and dedication has meant the world to my lil fam.

Robert Tarpley

Enjoyed everything about this business. I went in there not knowing where to begin but was guided and represented by knowledgeable and determined individuals. Thank you guys for all of the help.

Renee Haslett

Thank you Tim, Rosey, and Kaitlyn for the tremendous job you did on my case. My family and I were hit in a terrible car accident and several of us were beaten up quite badly. After speaking with Tim, my husband and I felt like this was a firm that we could trust to take care of us in a court of law. We were not disappointed. Tim was always there when we needed him and I had wonderful experiences with staff members whenever I called. The result was more than we hoped for.

Daisey Hazekamp

I got into a really bad car accident a few months back and immediately started searching for attorneys on the internet. I stumbled upon Timothy Ryan and decided to give them a call. The women who answered the phone was extremely helpful and transferred me over to the attorney right away. He not only got me into a doctor same day but was able to get me an extremely favorable settlement. I would absolutely recommend this law firm to anyone in need!

Kaitlyn Watson

After spending months trying to handle my case myself I finally broke down and hired a personal injury lawyer near me (Huntington Beach) for my car accident case. I was a little concerned that Covid-19 was going to affect their level of representation, but I was wrong. These people were always friendly and helpful. Whenever I had a question they were happy to give me an answer. I felt like I was a part of the case from start to finish. Once they were on the case, the insurance company stopped providing low-ball offers and I was able to walk away with a settlement that was 3x more than what they were offering me (easily justifying the cost of hiring them). I was looking for the best personal injury attorneys in Orange County and I feel very confident that I made the right decision. Highly recommend.

Ray Bush

I was referred to Ryan & Assoc by a coworker and I couldn’t have been happier with their help. They were helpful, open with details and processes, and really walked us thru our issues and what they could and could not do to help. Thank you so much, can’t recommend them highly enough

Mitch Lasser

Made the whole process super easy to deal with. With all the stress that comes along with these situations, it was nice to have the adequate support that I needed. They were so on top of it. Thank you guys so much!

Wren Haslett

Extremely professional with a personal touch. Couldn't be happier! Was kept up to date throughtout the whole case.

Natalie Gonzalez

I was rear ended at a stoplight and the other guys insurance just wasn’t taking into account my injuries but Mr. Ryan was able to get me into a chiropractic office, which helped me a lot. They were also able to negotiate a fair settlement, would definitely recommend to anyone looking for good representation.

Edward Ramirez

Timothy J. Ryan & Associates is the best personal injury law firm in the Orange County area. I was t-boned in a Huntington Beach car accident and they took care of everything. Their staff was always available and every time I asked to speak with Tim I was able to. If you need an attorney for a personal injury claim, you want them to represent you.

Maritza Freeman

Tim Ryan did a better job than I expected. I do not trust attorneys at all, let alone car accident lawyers, but I was struck by a car in an intersection and the incident left me with SERIOUS injuries. After several nights in the hospital and family members telling me I should hire a lawyer, I did a fair amount of research and found Tim. I noticed Tim is involved in different charities and seems to give back to the community. Since we are both in Huntington Beach and he seemed to be a trustworthy guy, I gave his office a call. I was not disappointed. I was hoping to get my medical bills paid and a fair amount of money for having to go through the whole ordeal. Tim came through BIG TIME. The office staff were nice and seemed to genuinely caring about me. In the end they negotiated a fantastic settlement. Highly recommend.

Mollie Scott

I spoke with Rosey and she answered all of my questions in a very polite way, after which I spoke with Timothy J. Ryan. Tim helped me to stop stressing out about my case and focus my attention on my job and home. They did not disappoint in any way. The entire office was professional and friendly and I now recommend them whenever someone mentions they’ve been in a car accident.

Marjorie Melton

Highly recommend this firm to care of your personal injury needs! Staff is very reliable and professional.

Victoria Medrano

This personal injury law firm was a godsend. Everyone there was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Tim and the team took so much stress off my shoulders with their love and professionalism.
I was on the 405 freeway when someone in my blindspot swerved to avoid a bag on the road and hit me near my back right tire. He pushed me into a couple of other cars and I broke my arm in a few places. Emergency services had to cut me out of the vehicle and I spent a night at the hospital. When I got home and contacted the insurance companies things got really bad, really quick. Apparently, there was some confusion as to whether or not I was the one that caused the accident. I found Timothy J. Ryan and Associates Personal Injury Lawyers on Google and gave them a call. They cleared up the confusion for me, got my vehicle damage paid for, and fought with the insurance company for a year before getting me a great settlement…like, really great.
I always felt like they were taking care of me and it gave me peace of mind. When the first settlement offer came in, I was happy. They said they could get more. When the second came in, same thing. A few months later I got a wonderful settlement that I did not expect.
I would recommend Timothy J. Ryan & Associates Personal Injury lawyers to anyone and everyone that has been in an auto accident.
Thanks everyone. I really appreciate it.

Richard Estrada

I was in a minor car accident last year and Mr. Ryan and his team were so quick with finalizing my car repairs and even getting me into a chiropractic office for my injured neck. He got me an awesome settlement and I will definitely be referring him to friends and family.

Catt Chakko

Kaylie Hogan

Thank you Mr. Ryan and Staff. Very helpful and easy to work with

James Williams

The law offices of Timothy J Ryan & Associates successfully brought a large, corporate, out-of-state entity to its knees and delivered justice to the client. Tim and his staff were caring and attentive throughout the process and surgical in their approach to holding the defendant to account. Equally impressive was their ability to facilitate a multi-pronged approach involving several parties across multiple states. Two thumbs up and five stars across the board.

Brent Seberhagen

Very professional and fast responses! I will recommend!

Nicole Satter

I recently was in a terrible auto accident where I retained Ryan & Associates for help. Not only were they extremely knowledgeable in guiding me through every step, they were super kind. I had no idea what I was in for and they were there to lean on for getting my car paid off and helping me with dr's appointment. I would definitely recommend to ANYONE looking for help and guidance through a tough process. Mr. Ryan also negotiated a very favorable settlement for me. A+!!

Nicole Snyder

Working with attorney Ryan and his staff was amazing! I'd been in a car accident before with minor injuries. The personal injury attorneys I used at that time did a horrible job. I found Tim through a friend and I could not be happier with the results. I received more than I expected and everyone from Rosey to Kaitlyn to Tim made me feel like I was being taken care of every step of the way. Highly recommend.

John Bisnar

Timothy j Ryan is very professional lawyer. They will help you to get settlement. I will recommend them.

Rohit Sharma

Tim Ryan stayed on top of my case and called me frequently with updates. He’s very receptive to any ideas you may have on your case. His staff is outstanding. When they said something was going to be ready, it was ready. His office wasn’t that close to my home but he came highly recommended and I decided the distance didn’t matter. Tim Ryan is very personable and seems to be genuinely interested in your situation. I would definitely recommend his office if you’re looking for a personal injury attorney j

Virginia R

This stellar review is long overdue... I was in a car accident in 2014 and looked everywhere for a good lawyer. The whole process of locating an attorney is intimidating and I wanted to find someone I’m comfortable with. Friends gave me some recommendations, luckily someone referred me to Timothy J. Ryan & Associates Personal Injury Lawyers. I ended up going with Tim and I am very happy happy I did, they walked me through each step and made me feel comfortable. Here’s a bit about my ordeal .... I called and spoke with a receptionist that transferred me to someone who did an intake. The intake went over what happened in my collision and basic info. I felt comfortable the entire time and like I was being taken care of. I then had an appointment with Mr. Ryan. I met with Tim for about an hour and I decided to proceed. We ended up reaching a settlement and I cannot state how thrilled I am with the results. I am very happy I chose Timothy J. Ryan and Associates. Every interaction I had with Tim, Rosey, and the rest of his team seemed like they really cared about me and my case. If i ever have anything come up, I will go to them with any legal needs. I highly recommend giving them a call if you are looking for an honest and reputable attorney.

Kristopher Bradford

I have worked with Tim on numerous occasions. Tim is a down-to-earth guy that will not only help you get the maximum compensation for your case, but will make sure you get the one-on-one time needed to feel comfortable and secure throughout the process. Great guy. Great people. Great injury attorney.

Randy Collins

I’m an attorney, so people are constantly asking me if I know a great pi firm. Without a doubt, Timothy J.

Tim has been in Huntington Beach for more than 30 years and is known for his contribution to charity and participation in charitable events. Great guy.

Leanna Der-Grigorian

I have so many wonderful things to say about this firm, their staff was so unbelievably helpful and extremely attentive to my needs. They were very quick to respond to me when i reached out to them, at all hours. This was my very first car accident and they made the entire stressful situation way easier to deal with. Thank you so much Rosey & Tim!!! Would recommend to anyone in need of a great law firm!

Kevin Green

Got bit by a dog and turned to Tim for help. Was not disappointed. They took care of all my injury-related issues from the moment I gave them a call. Contact these guys if you want to simply hand over your case to good people.

Vinny C

When I got hit this year in a car accident, I had no idea how much pain and suffering I was going to experience. Timothy J. Ryan & Associates got me in touch with a doctor and really took care of everything I needed. My car was fixed and so was I, all thanks to their recommendations and service. Tim, Kaitlyn, and Rosey where by my side every step of the way and I could not be happier! They were truly amazing and they worked very hard to make sure I got everything I could possibly need or want. Thank you Tim and associates! If you’re doubting who or whether or not you should call a personal injury firm, call these guys. You won’t regret it!

Andrea Eduardo

Can’t thank this office enough. They did not settle for the measly amount the insurance company was offering and seemed to really have my best interests at heart. They communicated with me regularly and were available when I needed them. The whole process was really easy. They have my recommendation for sure.

Abraham Leonald

Everyone at Tim Ryan’s office was very helpful and professional. My case was handled well and I received a favorable settlement. When I called they answered my questions. It took a while, but they made the whole situation very easy. Highly recommend.

JJ Bisnar

I hired this firm after my horrible vehicle accident! I was treated really well by Mr. Timothy. He was awesome and provided enough time talking about my case. Great legal advice, worked hard and made sure my needs were taken care of and won my case. Great job!

Angie H.

Tim Ryan and associates did a great job for me! I could care less about customer service, I just wanted to receive the most money possible. I suffered A LOT from a serious dog attack and I’m stuck with a life-long debilitating injury. I wanted to make sure I got the most money possible because I know my bills are going to be outrageous. They got me more than I thought possible! Feels like I hit the lottery! Still afraid of dogs, but the sweet mula has helped me move on

Cephas Conceptt

Thank you Mr. Ryan for helping me after my accident

Jo Greene

Got into a really bad car accident and Timothy J. Ryan & Associates was amazing. Everyone at the office went out of their way to make us comfortable and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with our experience. Everything I asked for, they did. Everything I wanted, I received. I highly recommend them for car accident compensation.

Praise Jordan

A very good experience. When I first began searching for a doctor who could treat my medical condition after the accident, I was told about attorney Ryan by a friend. The friend had used Ryan's services and was very pleased. I was more than pleased as well. Thanks everyone for your service. It was a traumatic period for me and I'm slowly getting back to my normal routine! Again, thank you Attorney Ryan and staff.

Rodger Vierra

Thanks to Timothy and his hard working staff i healed from my injuries from where they had sent me for therapy and settled my case well!! i will forever remember what you and your staff has done for me and with no hesitations would recommend this firm to anyone in need of help!!

Alberto Rivera

Timothy J. Ryan & Associates delivered everything they promised and more. I got into a car accident on PCH in HB and my life hasn’t been the same ever since. Without Tim I don’t know how I would be able to pay for everything since I didn’t have medical insurance at the time of the collision. Plus, the additional amount I received in excess of my medical expense costs was huge when buying a house. Throughout the process, I always felt like their staff was taking care of everything and I didn’t have to worry. In the end, I was right.
