Car Accident Lawyer Phil Santa MariaMy name is Phil Santa Maria and I’ve been a car accident lawyer for more than 25 years.

I have received the highest possible rating for ethical standards and legal ability from the prestigious Martindale – Hubbell Peer Review Rating System. The rating is called “AV – Preeminent.” Relatively few lawyers in the United States have achieved this highest rating.

I’m also a lifetime member of The Million Dollar Advocates Forum, a group of lawyers who have successfully handled million dollar cases. Less than 1% of American lawyers have achieved this distinction.

For many years, I’ve been listed in Who’s Who in American Law which honors about 2 ½ % of American lawyers.

From being involved in thousands of car accident claims, I’ve learned a few things.

Such as . . .

1. Car insurance companies are for-profit businesses that are more interested in protecting their bottom line than being fair to you.

2. However, they are not foolish and you can resolve routine car accident claims with them yourself and get a fair result.


You invest a little time in learning a few car accident claim basics. How much time? A couple of hours.

Once the insurance company sees that you know what you’re doing, the odds of them treating you more fairly shoot way up.

That’s where this website and I come in. Here, you can get the information and tips you need to settle your routine car accident claim, easily and without a lawyer.

Read the articles at this site. They’re crammed full of “been-there-done-that” information.
