  • I can not say enough about the treatment I received during this time.

    “I contacted Paul after a motorcycle accident that left me unable to work. Not only did Paul help me with the lawsuit, ensuring the little old lady's insurance paid what was fair, but he has help in other areas of my life affected by the accident through timely referrals and advice. The staff was very helpful, friendly and caring. I can not say enough about the treatment I received during this time.”

  • The staff was very pleasant, informative and helpful.

    “It has been an interesting and a learning experience. The staff was very pleasant, informative and helpful. At times I couldn't understand the procedures and it was explained to me in every details until it was clear to me. They are very patient and efficient. I met the entire staff at different visits, they shook my hand and smiled. Richard has been very patient and helpful. I would recommend their services should I come across anyone for references. Thank you all, Claire.”

  • Everyone at the firm was extremely helpful during what is normally a very complicated and convoluted process.

    “Everyone at the firm was extremely helpful during what is normally a very complicated and convoluted process. I wouldn't have known how to properly handle my situation, but they guided me through everything and took care a lot of the heavy lifting. I was injured in a motorcycle accident, and they took care of everything from day one in a quick and efficient manner. As someone who hates dealing with insurance companies and having to talk to them at all, I really appreciated them taking care of all the hard work and getting me a great settlement. Highly, highly recommend.”

  • Great service, good staff and wonderful Law firm.

    “When I needed a lawyer for my personal injury I looked on the internet and Googled "the best law office in my area." The results of the search was the law offices of Caputo and Van Der Walde. I gave them a call and they accepted my case. At the time I was immobilized and they came to me for the consultation. I had surgery for my injury and they were caring and concerned. I wasn't treated like a client but as a person which is important to me. They answered all my questions when I had concerns about my case and kept me updated along the way. I will recommend this law office to any of my friends or family who needs a lawyer. Great service, good staff and wonderful Law firm. I also like to give a special thank you to Richard Eichenbaum for giving me hope and positivity during my case. Thank you Caputo and Van Der Walde.”

  • From the very beginning, it was clear Paul and his team would do whatever it took to help us.

    “We are so grateful we found Paul Van Der Walde! From the very beginning, it was clear Paul and his team would do whatever it took to help us. Our seemingly simple case became more complicated by the day, but they worked hard and strategically to ensure we were always informed, prepared and one-step ahead. We're thrilled with the case result, but more importantly, we're thankful they believed in us.”

  • Paul was always prompt, very professional, and explained everything clearly

  • Paul and his team not only made us comfortable, they were kind enough to research our complex case and give us a confidence of we getting a fair compensation.

    “Me and my wife would always recommend Paul and his associates as one of the best law firms for personal injury cases. When we approached Paul, we were in real painful state ( my entire family has gone through a horrific time after a car accident, my wife was bed ridden and insurance company of responsible party had denied coverage) . Paul and his team not only made us comfortable, they were kind enough to research our complex case and give us a confidence of we getting a fair compensation. In the entire process, Paul and his associates showed their knowledge of law (both US and international), their negotiation skills with insurance company and off course their thorough professionalism in giving attention to minutest detail. Even though final settlement took a while , Paul and his team never gave up and supported us with right suggestion at each and every step. The end result is something me and my wife will always owe to Paul.”

  • In turning to you to handle all of the legal issues that arose out of the accident, I saved myself considerable mental and emotional grief...

    “This is a belated, but nonetheless very sincere, letter of appreciation for your excellent handling of the complexities of insurance coverage and for recovering substantial damages for my personal injuries and property loss following my biking accident that occurred on July 13, 2003. I frequently mentally replay that incident, involving being "rear-ended" in a well-marked bike lane by an uninsured driver who, as result, was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. As you know, I sustained severe injuries that included soft tissue, nerve and cervical damage. The latter required fusion of the C-6 and C-7 vertebrae. Unfortunately, the damage to the C-7 nerve has not healed, notwithstanding the neurosurgeon's valiant attempts to free-up the passage of the nerve through the vertebrae. In all, I do realize I am very lucky to have survived the accident. But I also realize that, in turning to you to handle all of the legal issues that arose out of the accident, I saved myself considerable mental and emotional grief, as a result of which I am sure my recovery was hastened. As a fellow attorney who specializes in an entirely different field of law, I knew full well that the adage about representing one's own interests (fool for a client, etc.) would apply. However, also as an attorney, I can appreciate all the more the skill and experience that you brought to my case. Aside from the limitations upon recovery and the complexities of uninsured motorist's law, you developed a legal strategy that provided the greatest recovery against competing and recalcitrant insurance companies as well as Medicare. Your research of unsettled questions of coverage followed by skillful advocacy of our legal rights successfully convinced the insurers involved in the case that settlement on our terms was in their own best interests. For your efforts I am profoundly grateful. I would be pleased to recommend your representation, as indeed I have, to others who find themselves in need of legal assistance in your field of practice.”

  • Top-notch attorney

    “Top-notch attorney. Highly recommended.”

    Christian L., Attorney

  • Paul was smart and persistent, and we beat a very powerful adversary and he got me the maximum claim.

    “I had Paul for a rear-end injury case against a major insurer. Many lawyers did not want to take my case because they felt I filed my case too late and the insurance was very tough on injury lawyers. Paul was smart and persistent, and we beat a very powerful adversary and he got me the maximum claim. I will recommend Paul to anyone with a personal injury case.”

  • Paul assured me he would handle everything with the insurance companies and I could focus on healing.

    “In September 2002, I was involved in an accident in which an elderly man ran a red light, and broadsided my car. The impact caused my airbags to deploy and totaled my car. After my visit to the Emergency Room I learned my left wrist was severely fractured. It would take 2 surgeries, a lot of physical therapy, and over a year for the wrist to heal. With so much to think about in regard to my injury and healing, along with the constant frustration in dealing with the insurance companies, I decided to get an attorney to help me through this process. When I first met with Paul, I was not doing well emotionally, or physically, with my injury. Paul assured me he would handle everything with the insurance companies and I could focus on healing. His genuine concern along with his knowledge of personal injury law and the legal process was quite a relief for me. He consistently kept me informed throughout the process, taking his time to thoroughly address any questions or concerns I may have, and he always made himself available when I needed his guidance. Although my case has been settled and my wrist is healed, I often think I would not have gotten through this devastating event without Paul's help. I can highly recommend Paul to any person who is in need of an attorney. He is compassionate, honest, highly knowledgeable, and responsive, a rare find in these times.”

  • This team is highly proficient and professional and they are also ethical, principled people.

    “5 Stars for Van der Walde and Associates. Paul represented me in a slip and fall accident and from the moment I met Paul and his team until we reached a very fair and equitable settlement they were outstanding and great to work with. This team is highly proficient and professional and they are also ethical, principled people. Paul and his staff stayed on top of the situation, carefully explained all aspects of what I could expect and there we no surprises. They could not have done a better job for me and I recommend Van de Walde & Associates enthusiastically.”

  • I can't say enough good things about Paul and his staff - they were prompt, caring, knowledgable and there was always someone live I could speak to that knew what was going on with my case.

    “Paul is one of the nicest people I have ever met. He also happens to be an excellent lawyer as well. I had a very serious injury case and Paul and his team helped me through the legal issues and also assisted me with finding a place to stay and has continued to help me with things even after my case was over. I can't say enough good things about Paul and his staff - they were prompt, caring, knowledgable and there was always someone live I could speak to that knew what was going on with my case. Vanderwalde & Associates helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life and I will always be grateful for what they did for me and I consider Paul amongst one of my friends.”

  • We were listened to, sympathized with, and had action taken on our behalf to determine and win a worthy settlement for each one of us.

    “In 2014 our family was involved in an auto accident that not only totaled our vehicle, but left us with injuries that altered our lives for many months. The legal team at Caputo and Van Der Walde took care of us. We were listened to, sympathized with, and had action taken on our behalf to determine and win a worthy settlement for each one of us. Without hesitation, this is a quality firm whom we would chose to represent us again if necessary.”

    Jason & Danielle Allen

  • His entire team is wonderful, second to none. We are so happy with this outcome.

    “I was a retirement- aged person when I fell down in a fitness club and severely fractured my wrist. Later on I was involved in ambulance/emergency room and eventually a surgery. The club offered me 3-month free membership but I did think this was adequate. I contacted a couple of attorneys and was all turned down by them because of the liability waiver form I signed with the club, I was very frustrated... Fortunately I found Rich Eichenbaum, he reviewed my case and finally informed me of his acceptance for the case, I started to cherish a hope again. He and his team have given me and my wife wonderful services, every time when we were there, we were made feel at home. Rich spent time with us to explain each step he would take, and we just carefully followed his instructions. His entire team is wonderful, second to none. Our case was just close last week. I were totally surprised with the outcome that we were informed before X'mas. We are so happy with this outcome. Thank you, Rich!!"”

You have a wonderful office and family, and I will carry with me the kindness that you extend to your clients. The most valuable part of this experience has been being able to listen and watch you work. Thank you for the many lunches and showing me a more "human" way of lawyering. I hope that you have a prosperous rest of the year.”

  • Paul is extremely knowledgeable, proactive and goes above and beyond, in fighting for the compensation you deserve.

    “My husband had an auto accident that left him with an emergency abdominal surgery, brain contusion, and other severe injuries. While he was struggling to recover, we simply did not have the capacity to deal with the insurance companies. Once we decided to use the services of Mr. Paul Van Der Walde, we immediately felt at ease. Paul Van Der Walde and the rest of the staff at the Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP are extremely compassionate and caring. Paul is extremely knowledgeable, proactive and goes above and beyond, in fighting for the compensation you deserve. From Day 1 Paul made us feel prioritized and lead our case very efficiently. He and his team members were on top of the case from the get go. Special shout outs to Shaun, Evangelina, and everyone else at the firm that made our experience so gratifying. My husband and I are very thankful to Paul Van Der Walde & his entire team and definitely recommend his services. Hope my review is useful to those seeking legal advise & help when going through difficult times as a result of an accident.”

    “I was in an auto accident and had a serious head injury. A friend suggested that I see Rich Eichenbaum. What a gem!! Rich is extremely professional, knowledgeable and personable. He introduced me to Shawn Smith, who is an integral addition to the law firm. Shawn has previously worked for insurance companies and has a thorough knowledge of what to expect from those companies when settling a case. Needless to say we never had to litigate, however, you can be sure that Rich and Shawn will do whatever it takes to thoroughly work for their clients!!!! You will NEVER be disappointed!!!”

    “Van Der Walde & Associates is a law firm which truly cares! My husband and I met with Paul Van Der Walde during a very stressful time in our lives. We had just been involved in a serious auto accident in which the other party was seriously injured. We had many concerns about what to expect going forward and felt we needed to seek some legal advice. Paul offered to graciously meet with us on short notice. Even though Paul usually represents injured parties in such cases, he took the time to meet with us and inform us of what we can anticipate in the future and of the options that are available to us. Paul was very attentive, informative and thorough in our discussion of our situation. The knowledge he imparted and the sensitivity he displayed when addressing our concerns helped give us some peace of mind. Paul is a very personable, approachable, highly knowledgeable attorney whose advice to us during a very difficult time is appreciated beyond measure. Paul is a caring, consummate professional, and I strongly recommend Van Der Walde & Associates to anyone who is seeking legal advice.”
