Excellent4.6 Based on 117 reviews from review us onLidia GrassoLidia Grasso ★★★★★ Success leaves clues, and it’s no surprise that Russell Kerr is so highly spoken of and recommended. My case is too small for him to take it on, but right after my initial phone call he took the time to write me an email. He has included helpful tips and bits of advise and guidance.This level of responsiveness, care, and professionalism is an extremely rare find these days. I'm deeply grateful to Russell, and wish him and his practice tremendous success. I'll be recommending him to everyone I know.Dean V.Dean V. ★★★★★ Russell Kerr did an awesome job on my Diminish Value and Loss of Use lawsuit with a big insurance company. The insurance company Adjuster offered me a low...Alvin LinAlvin Lin ★★★★★ Mr. Kerr was kind enough to provide some good legal guidance to me as I navigated a diminished value car situation for which I have little personal experience with. I greatly appreciate his time and his clear and helpful explanations!!Gerard K.Gerard K. ★★★★★ My less-than-a-year-old C8 Corvette was clipped by a big rig, which was at fault. While the car was being repaired, I researched DV claims, and decided on...Engagement Guys San DiegoEngagement Guys San Diego ★★★★★ Russell has gone above and beyond to take care of me & my loss of use claim for my Ferrari. He has stayed on top of everything & has followed up multiple times with me to make sure that I was doing my part. He has done an amazing job to get this case settled for me, and I would greatly recommend him & his law office to EVERYONE!!! Thank you Russell You're the best!YS S.YS S. ★★★★★ Did a great job on my DV and LOU negotiation with the insurance company of the driver who rear ended me.Ruth AtegaRuth Atega ★★★★★ Atty Russell Kerr, Jr. had negotiated a fair accident settlement agreement with the opposing counsel. I highly recommend this law firm for reasonable legal fees and efficient services.Teresita PeregrinaTeresita Peregrina ★★★★★ I am thankful that Kerr & Sheldon was recommended to me by my family chiropractor. She treats me like family and I knew I could trust her judgement.From what was an extremely traumatic traffic accident that left me shocked, stressed, and emotionally shaken; Kerr & Sheldon took charge with the intricacies of dealing with the aftermath. I was able to focus on my healing, mentally and physically, while they took care of the rest. They were very clear the whole process in communicating with me and made sure to go above and beyond to help me get the best services I needed in repairs (car & myself).I’d also like to give a personal thank you to the receptionist I spoke with who prayed for my dog when she was very ill. Even though my stress and sadness of a sick pet was not their responsibility , she took the time to be there for me and help lift me up in the added stress of a motor accident. Unfortunately my poor baby passed away in April, I will never forget the prayer I received through the phone and the kindness and love I was given. That reflects on the whole team and I’m happy I decided to put my trust in them. Thank you!Dave RyanDave Ryan ★★★★★ Russ has done great work for me related to my property damage claim and I'm very happy with the final outcome. His knowledge of auto claims and insurance contract terms was particularly helpful in my case, realizing value that I would not have thought was possible. And he accomplished this in a very short timescale too. I strongly recommend Russ for others who are seeking help with automobile property damage.Mourad ShehadehMourad Shehadeh ★★★★★ I was rear-ended by a semi-truck in the summer 2022 and my car was totaled. Breanna, at Kerr & Sheldon really stream-lined the process dealing with insurance. I was getting so frustrated but she was able to solve all my problems. When it came to my wellbeing, I primarily worked with Russel Kerr, and he went above and beyond, helping me find a chiropractor and getting the attention I needed on a lien. Not to mention the fact that they were always available for me to reach out and contact them for any of my questions. Thank you so much!!Larry PaulLarry Paul ★★★★★ I was referred to Kerr and Sheldon by a family friend for my personal injury case. They did an excellent job with helping me get medical care, answering any questions I had and helping get my case sorted out as quickly as possible. They even sent a Christmas card to my family which was a nice personal touch.Jeff J.Jeff J. ★★★★★ Our 4-day old motorhome was hit by a drunk driver and had over $10,000 in repairs. Luckily the driver was insured and we received payment for those repairs....S TabanS Taban ★★★★★ I found Mr. Kerr while searching for an attorney for loss of value. Our car was brand new and I got hit hard by another car. Luckily I wasn’t hurt, but it was frustrating that our brand new car wasn’t worth the same anymore because of this accident and it would be harder to sell. Other law firms I called almost hung up on me as soon as they heard that there were no injuries. They advertised Loss of Value, but would only consider a case if there were serious enough injuries. When I contacted Mr. Kerr he was so incredibly helpful. The car was only partially damaged and repairable, so this was not a case for an attorney. Nevertheless Mr. Kerr helped me so much, from giving references for appraisers, to guidance on how to proceed and explanations of how loss of value works.I hardly ever post reviews, but he was so amazing and responded quickly and thoroughly to all my emails and all my questions even though I wasn’t a client that I wanted to let people know.Hopefully I don’t get into another accident, but should I ever need an attorney for an accident, I will definitely contact Mr. Kerr as an actual client. In the meantime I am very grateful for all the help and advice he gave me.Melinda HerrickMelinda Herrick ★★★★★ Extremely professional and truly care about their clients. They always return calls promptly. Highly recommend. If you need help, they will not disappoint you. They were very helpful in my casePatrick J ParryPatrick J Parry ★★★★★ Great group. I worked directly with Russell Kerr. Did exactly what they said and thensome. Was available to advise on any situation and properly guide me during the case to have a successful settlement. Their network of Doctors are great and the whole process was streamlined. All you had to do was tell them what you want and expected and they would advise accordingly and connect you with the proper specialist. Everything was handled through their network. From dealing with insurance companies paying the medical offices through their lien program and final proceeds. They even work hard to make sure the medical bills are reasonable. Highly recomend.Delilah Nina KoDelilah Nina Ko ★★★★★ My 2015 Porsche was in an accident and after it was repaired it wasn't worth as much as before. The insurance company said I couldn't recover for the diminished value. I hired Mr. Kerr and he helped me recover the value that my car lost in value.js_loader
