Dominic Hix ★★★★★

Today i met with Mr James Shaw an was greated by the staff an him self in the up most professional manner . He was very confident an concerned about my health first an foremost. After we discussed my injuries he was able to schedule my appointments that day. That alone made me feel like i chose a strong lawyer that had me in his best interest to get me back to health . .. My first impression about Mr Shaw was he made me feel comfortable an easy to talk to an he listens to what you say .

Thanks again guys.


Dan Austin ★★★★★

This law firm did a great job in making me feel comfortable and assured that my case, and my wife's case, was in good hands. Joeseph helped me out a lot and even went the extra mile to stay in contact. In the end, I had the rough end of the case, though I technically won, Mr. Shaw helped me out even more. Though I hope to never need the services, if I do, it shall be with this firm. Thank you!


Virginia Barrera ★★★★★

I highly recommend this firm to everyone!!!!


Chris Lopez ★★★★★

Araceli really took care of me and my partner. Him and I were in a car accident in November 2017 and she took excellent care of our case. She was always very professional and kept in touch with him and I through every stage of the process. I had knee pain and small discs in my lower back with the back pain from the car accident. She fought to ensure we get the most out of our outcome. We were in good hands. I'm glad we put our trust into this amazing team. Thank you for everything


Terry Pedersen Jr ★★★★★

Just want to take a minute to Thank the staff of Carabin & Shaw for all the help dealing with my case. I have never had an injury due to an accident & my case manager Stephanie Ibarra has been 100% helpful in explaining things & assisiting me in all my issues. My lawyer Thomas Arrd is equally helpful & very informative. Thank you for all your help. I'd definitely recommend this law office to my family & friends.
I will be writing another review once my case is completely settled.


Tom Cornelius ★★★★★

I dealt with Atty. Tom Ard and several members of the staff. On my 3 visits to their offices I felt very comfortable and had very little wait time. I feel that Tom was very fair and did the best job he could do to settle my claim. Every time I would have a question by e mail I would immediately receive an answer. I would highly recommend the firm for anyone needing assistance for settling an injury claim.


Dilan Martinez ★★★★★

I called earlier today to inquire information about what attorney I should speak to about my divorce and the receptionist was very helpful and nicely mannered. Highly suggest this firm to others.


Isidro Ovid Manjarres ★★★★★

Mysti_cal ★★★★★

I'm glad I chose this office to help me with my claim when I injured my neck and back in a car accident back in October. The paralegal, Stephanie Ibarra was very efficient and quick to respond with any questions I may have had. She made me feel comfortable with the process which made it easy for me to get the treatment needed for me to get better. I will DEFINITELY recommend this office to anyone and will continue to use them if ever needed again.


Vigie Rio ★★★★★

These guys were very helpful and honest. Did not go the way I had hoped. But I know they fought hard for me. So if you want honesty and someone who WILL FIGHT AS HARD AS THEY CAN? Your best bet? CARABIN AND SHAW. Hands down. I highly recommend them.

I am very happy that Carabin & Shaw addressed the case of my son; not only won, but he received the earned monetary compensation, despite the fact that the case was difficult. They were very diligent, quick and effective. Would recommend them to anyone. Best law firm! Thanks Carabin & Shaw


Carlos Boza ★★★★★

Carabin & Shaw is simply put, great. They provided outstanding and trustworthy service for my family and I. They took care of everything, and worked with me step by step with the utmost professionalism, always making sure I was satisfied with the ongoing details of my case. I would recommend them to anyone that wants to be treated like a priority, as well as see substantial results in their case.


TX Robman ★★★★★

Initially I wasn't satisfied with my case results and I voiced it with my attorney. I thought it would just pass over as I know I'm just one of many clients. However the next day I received a direct call from Mr. Jamie Shaw and he was really concerned about how I felt with my case and spoke to me over the phone and even invited me back to speak with him in person. Mr. Shaw was very understanding, respectful and dignified. He really showed that he is passionate and holds a high standard of his law firm. He went beyond the extra mile to ensure that I understood and felt comfortable with the results. Not everything in life is perfect so it's important to keep realistic expectations. But Mr. Jamie Shaw is the real deal. Thank you sir.


David Trejo ★★★★★

Araceli thank you so much for everything we have not settled yet but all my therapy is done no more pain I’m a happy client so far


T Rose ★★★★★

Exceeding my expectations in every category. Car accidents are stressful and life changing. I have a top notch team assisting me, and the care and compassion go beyond what I would have expected in this stressful and life changing ordeal.

Mr Shaw has made me feel that his interest in my recovery is his first priority. No matter what my needs may be, he has gone above and beyond to assist in solutions and reassuring me that I'm not going through this alone.

He came highly recommended, and I'm very grateful that his firm is handling my case.


Rick Stead ★★★★★

Jamie shaw is a caring thoughtful person I am so grateful that he and his associates took care of me they are wonderful people
Rick Stead they went above and beyond.


Daniel Ortiz ★★★★★

I was involved in a vehicle accident back in June of this year and was seeking legal assistance because the driver who hit me was uninsured. I presented my case to multiple law firms in San Antonio and they all seemed interested in helping me, but I received the most genuine support and attention to detail from the attorneys at Carabin & Shaw. This was my first time consulting with an attorney so I solely relied my decision based on these Google reviews, and I am so glad I made that decision! The process was somewhat slow due to my case being so complex, but Araceli was EXTREMELY helpful and kept me updated with my case and walked me step by step along the way. I am very pleased with the outcome of the settlement and if I ever find myself seeking legal assistance again I will not hesitate to call Araceli and associates at Carabin&Shaw!


Audra Morris ★★★★★

I have to say that the staff here was wonderful in answering my questions, hearing my concerns and getting me to the right places for treatments. Araceli Yanez has gone above and beyond to keep me informed and up to date on all activity. Not knowing what to expect it’s been nice to have someone helping with the process. If you need help this is the place to get it!


Jenna Martinez ★★★★★

I was in a motor vehicle accident and was extremely happy with the services provided from this law firm. My legal assistant was Jackie and she helped me out with everything I needed and answered any questions I had. Very good experience with this firm!


Kris Torres ★★★★★

Our lawyer Joseph Echavarria at Carabin & Shaw is dedicated to professionalism and success for his clients. He exceeded our expectations in handling our cases supportive and reassuring, he explained every step, legal procedure, and option to us, making sure that we understood everything before we made any decisions. We are grateful for the outcome and legal agreement he attained for us. Thank you to Mr. Echavarria and Carabin & Shaw


Kris, thank you for your review. Jamie Shaw


Kaleena Castillo ★★★★★

Great firm! Stephanie Ibarra helped me every step along the way. Choose this firm if you get into an accident, you won't regret it!


B. Whitson ★★★★★

In November 2016, I was involved in a major accident in which I was rear ended by a drunk driver. The Accident resulted in me suffering back and neck injuries. Carabin Shaw came highly recommended by one of my co-workers. I used Carabin Shaw to litigate my claim and I must say they have been very courteous, professional and patient in dealing with my situation. They have made sure everything was in place to ensure a smooth transition at every step of the process, from getting compensation for my totaled vehicle, to ensuring I received the proper medical diagnosis and treatment for my injuries. I was awarded a meaningful settlement and they have continued to work my case to ensure I get maximum compensation for my injuries and time lost. I highly recommend Carabin Shaw. My case agent, Araceli Marfil, did excellent work.


S Stan ★★★★★

I have never been more happy with a law firm than I am with Carabin Shaw. They are extremely knowledgable, very punctual, reliable, friendly and courteous.

Christina G. Arocha ★★★★★

I had my first motorcycle accident in September 2016. I decided to have Carabin & Shaw law firm represent me because my family has had positive results for the past 20+ years. Well my experience was a little different and I did have a few questions that I did not get answers to. I admit I was upset and I thought my concerns fell on deaf ears that I just let it go. Well a few days later I received a call from Mr. Shaw. He invited back in to his office to explain my questions and concerns in detail. I was really surprised that he took the time to help me. I recommend this law firm to my riding brothers and sisters if they are to ever need a law firm that is looking out for their needs. Thank you for all your help.


Griselda Soto ★★★★★

I was in an accident and this office went above and beyond to help me out. I will forever be grateful.

Devlin Hytche Simms ★★★★★

We appreciate them being so courteous and helpful over a stressful Christmas holiday for my wife.


Selena Gonzalez ★★★★★

Called this firm just to get information on how they could provide assistance on my case. The staff was very knowledgeable and gave me plenty of information on how they could help me with my case. Carabiner Shaw always kept me informed on the process of my case. I highly would recommend this firm to anyone.


Jeremy Young ★★★★★

Had a HORRIBLE experience with this law firm after our accident. We would wait weeks to get call on our progress if at all. They continually had the wrong information in my wife's file (which I think affected our case) and we were assigned 3 different case managers in the span of a year and a half. We ended up basically getting told by Shaw told us that they were ALSO going to take a percentage of the PIP. I hope things have changed since then but we had a VERY unpleasant experience after our accident.


The Moonsault ★★★★★

Always fighting for the people and actually makes you feel like they care and working for and with you as opposed to simply making money. Rare gem in the law business. Thank you all!


Kasandra-Adrianna Zapata ★★★★★

AWESOME. Very attentive to client needs. Speedy responses regarding my case. Goes above and beyond for their clients. Would recommend to friends and family due to the service and care.


Shad Prichard ★★★★★

First class team! First let me say that nothing moves fast in the legal system however it was well worth the wait to have Carabin & Shaw on my case. They always stayed in touch with me and made sure I got the medical care I needed. I am a very satisfied customer and you really can't go wrong with their service. If you are looking for a "silly commercial attorney" this is not the firm you want. If you are looking for professional and steady legal counsel then this is your team. Hopefully I will not need their service again however should I ever need legal representation I will not hesitate to contact them. Huge thank you to Araceli for always checking on me and keeping me updated.


Shakeel M ★★★★★

In my opinion, these Reviews seem to be FAKE. This attorney has been reviewed by his 175 Clients within a matter of year. If you do the simple math, this would mean that this attorney was acquiring ONE NEW CLIENT in every two days.

IMPOSSIBLE

Folks, don't fall for these types of reviews in my opinion.


Javier Cantu ★★★★★

I really loved the help I received from Carabin & Shaw, and appreciate everything they were able to do for my family and I!


Don Phung ★★★★★

Good service.


Paula Marie ★★★★★

Would recommend to friends and family. They really care about their clients. Having a great experience


Val W ★★★★★

I was rear ended in July 2015 and after two years of battling with USAA we finally got a settlement. This has been a long and exhausting experience. All I can say is I can no longer stomach the USAA commercials nor feel they have veterans best interest at hand. In the end they are no different than any other insurance company, they want to minimize or pay little to nothing toward any claim. I spent 22 years in the Army and was with USAA for over 25 years, but after this episode I'm done. I appreciate all the work and effort exhibited by Mr. Shaw and his attorney's especially Gary Gibson! Thank you for your work and support!


Belen Maldonado ★★★★★

YOU NEED TO CHOOSE THIS LAW FIRM SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!! If i could rate this at a hundred stars I would. Pick Joseph R. Echavarria to represent you, I will never go anywhere else!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Nicole Urias ★★★★★

Felt so welcomed as soon as we walked in the staff was great especially the ladies up front they were so sweet and helpful.. They worked super fast on our case and kept us informed all the time! I would recommend this place to everyone


Ronnie Serna ★★★★★

My daughter and I were involved in an accident April 2015, and I chose Carabin & Shaw to represent us. My primary concern was ensuring our needs with regards to our physical well-being were met. The attorney that was assigned to our case was very professional as well as the rest of the staff I came in contact with. We are very happy with the results and hope to not need their services again; but if I do I would totally contact them again. My experience was awesome.


Lizbeth Leon ★★★★★

Very pleased with Mr. James Shaw and his Firm. Excellent service. Courteous and friendly staff. The Firm kept me posted about my case all the time. Very satisfied with their professionalism!


Shekilla Woods ★★★★★

They handled my case well; even though it was complicated. They stayed in constant contact with me with updates and was very thorough with all the information they provided me. I would recommend them and would use their services in the future if I needed them again. Thank you all for your help, it's much appreciated!!


Berenice Torres ★★★★★

Awsome service, kept good communication all the time. Thank you!


David Winkler ★★★★★

I was in an vehicle accident last April and contacted Carabin & Shaw. I was greeted by Araceli who took all my information and even came to my town to get the necessary paperwork they needed to start to work on my case. She has been absolutely great with keeping me informed and returning all my calls. I would recommend Carabin & Shaw to anyone needing legal assistance. They have been a blessing.


shan cantu ★★★★★

I called and spoke to a very nice lady named Brandy to start. She took a message and it was very simple. The reason this was impressive is because it was after 8:30pm. The very next morning Anna called me. I explained my situation. She wasn't able to help me with what I was specifically asking BUT she did help me in a different way. I was given information and given peace of mind. I was really worried about a car accident and the driver who was at fault. He changed his story and I was worried he would try and sue me with his lies. Anna explained how these things work when very little damage is involved and no-one is hurt. She assured me I didn't have anything to worry about. She even gave me some ideas on other things I could do. I just wanted to say thank you for your time and speedy reply. You really gave me peace of mind. So thanks very much. -


Zulema Capetillo ★★★★★

Great staff and great service. Couldn't be happier.


LaKeisha Gamble ★★★★★

My experience with Carabin Shaw was a great experience. They streamlined the process and made it easy. I would recommend them to anyone needing a lawyer.


Jesse Cabello ★★★★★

So far I am impressed with the speed and quality of service. They had the most review and they really listen and answered my question without the usual song and dance. Yvette helped me and was able to set a Dr. appointment the very next day. Thanks


Jose Ramirez ★★★★★

The professionalism showcased by this office was above and beyond my expectations to include the staff. Definitely recommend!


Michael Morales ★★★★★

Very kind and understanding office, the receptionist I spoke with was willing to assist in all aspects! Definitely recommend!!

Justin Cantu ★★★★★

Awesome experience. Took care of me from start to finish. First time ever having to deal with a situation like this and they made it painless...literally. Thank you for everything guys!


Ryan Mann ★★★★★

Carabin Shaw is a fantastic law firm. Highly competent lawyers, friendly and professional staff, and a trusted legal team that truly listens and understands your problems in a time of need. I highly recommend. Simply put, they are rated the best because they are the best. Thanks Carabin Shaw!


Diana Ramirez ★★★★★

Good staff! Recommend this place to any one!! Really helped out!


dick daly ★★★★★

Professional, stress-free experience. Was treated with respect and courtesy. And I got coffee and donuts. Will certainly recommend.


Jessica Norene ★★★★★

My experience with Carabin Shaw has been very good. Their staff is wonderful, and Anna Flores & Mr. Shaw have talked me off a ledge several times during some of the ups & downs of a very emotional time. The car accident changed my life forever, and although I'm blessed and grateful it wasn't worse, this has NOT been easy. Each time I wondered if it was ever going to be okay, these folks reassured me - and I feel confident that the outcome is the best there could be, given the situation. I didn't hire any of the "screamy" lawyers, because a)They annoy me on television, and b) I had a feeling I'd never meet the actual attorney. That's just not the case here. I met Mr. Shaw my first visit to the firm. Although it's taken some time (any case like this does, apparently), I know they worked hard for me and really helped me out - often going far beyond the extra mile. I am so glad I made the decision to go with Carabin Shaw, and words can't express my gratitude.


Patrick Barrera ★★★★★

Called for information, and they were helpful in everything that was needed .
The receptionist was also was very professional and polite.
Grest to be able.to talk with a live person that actually take the time for your concerns.
Instead of an answering machine and a quick yes and no from most places.
Thanks for your services.


B. Rome ★★★★★

Always clear & to the point advice. I'll definitely use them again.


Sandra Prater ★★★★★

I would like to say, Araceli Marfil is a godsend. We were involved in an automobile accident and never had been. Araceli stepped right up and took control of things. We were very much in the dark. We sustained injuries and were unable to come into the office so she came to our home. All questions and concerns are addressed immediately and efficiently. Araceli sees everything through and updates us regularly. I find her very professional, knowledgeable and still finds time to ask how we are doing. We would like to thank Araceli and the Carabin Shaw Law Firm. Good Job !!!!


Steven Gamble ★★★★★

Amazing experience after we were hit by a drunk driver! Amazing staff, communication and clarity throughout the life of the process.


Irene Laurel ★★★★★

Back in December 2012, I was represented in the guardianship case regarding my husband by Hector Q Martinez. My sincere gratitude goes to Mr. Martinez and his wonderful assistant Norma. Both Mr.Martinez and Norma contributed their time as a team by working countless hours on my case to represent me to the best of their ability. Needless to say, I was represented extremely well and the outcome of the case was successful. At Carabin and Shaw, they are truly the best.

Mary N ★★★★★

I used Carabin & Shaw to help with my Social Security Disability case and the service I received was beyond excellent. Whenever I had a question their assistant, Cynthia, was always there to quickly and politely answer my questions. Communication was excellent and my assigned lawyer Mr Escobedo handled the case in the most professional manor possible. In all, my Disability claim was handled and approved in less then a year. Without the use of Carabin & Shaw I do not think that would even be possible and I would probably still be waiting for my disability reply. Overall, I am a very satisfied customer and would not hesitate to use this law firm again for any other legal matters if they should arise. Thank you so much.


Ashley Mann ★★★★★

Carabin & Shaw was great! . The legal team is top notch and very professional. They truly care about their clients. I would highly recommend Carabin & Shaw to anyone in need a great law firm.


Cristina Longoria ★★★★★

When I had my car accident in June, (I was hit from behind by a young gentleman texting and driving), I had no idea what an experience it could be! I was advised by family and friends to seek an attorney. I read reviews online and decided to contact Carabin & Shaw. I'm extremely appreciative for all their assistance with my case. I was explained step by step what would take place throughout the process. Mary Lopez is very helpful and knowledgeable. Each time I have had a question, Mary or the attorneys themselves contact me to put me at ease. I truly believe I will be compensated for all the pain, time and suffering I have endured because of the GREAT work Carabin & Shaw has done. I recommend them to everyone who needs legal advice after a car accident.


D Davis ★★★★★

Carabin Shaw handled my case flawlessly. I was at ease and had great piece of mind knowing they had all the answers when I needed. My case worker, Araceli, was fantastic and kept me aware of everything that was pertinent to the case. I can't thank her and the whole staff enough for their outstanding support. I would highly recommend anyone looking for an attorney to represent their matter to give the Carabin Shaw SA team a call.


Nisha Mcknight ★★★★★

Currently a client of Carabin and Shaw. So far so good. They are very customer service oriented, helpful,and most of all down to earth great people. Anna has been a sweetheart during my time of need. Ill write another review once the outcome of my injury settlement is finished.


Sergio Ortega ★★★★★

We had the best legal advice from Mr. James Shaw and his team. They made my car accident experience easier with their help. I highly recommend their services. They were always prompt and quick with anything I needed during this tragic incident. Many thanks to Carabin|Shaw.


Barbie Cortez ★★★★★

David Jasso ★★★★★

In January this year, I encountered my first auto accident. Immediately the other party accepted fault and it was noted on the incident report by the responding officer. Although things looked to be in my favor, aside from all of the inconveniences resulting in losing my primary transportation and the cooperation of the other party's insurance, I decided to protect my interest with a local attorney. When I called Carabin Shaw, I was greeted very politely by Laura Delgado who right away put me at ease and invited me to the office for a face to face consultation. Upon arrival and each time I visited after that, my wait was minimal and I was attended to in a professional manner. Laura was attentive and very clear about what I was about to encounter and how she could help. She took care of all necessary arrangements needed to move forward in my case. Each time I called with a concern, Laura had an answer or got back to me in a timely manner with one. At the conclusion of my case, I was introduce to Mr. Shaw who presented me with options and how they could further assist me. I do recommend this law firm for any legal assistance you may need.


Lenin Toledo ★★★★★

It's always a pleasure to work with Tracey Leonard. She's a great contact to have. Her work ethic and ability to multi-task are very impressive. Working with her makes everything a breeze as you'll know your issues are being looked after, and promptly.


Jen W ★★★★★

Tom Ard and Araceli Marfil did a great job with handling our family's claim. Our mother was killed in a car accident in April and after speaking with several injury lawyers, Carabin Shaw's crew made us feel important and not just another case. They responded quickly to phone messages and e-mail and by July a settlement had been made with the insurance companies. They were quick, thorough and kept us in the loop. We would recommend them to anyone needing a injury lawyer. Thank you!!!
