A lawyer with compassion and integrity!
My father was involved in a car accident on Garcon Point Bridge in Pensacola. The at-fault driver had swerved into his lane and unfortunately did not survive. My family and I were distressed, confused and did not know what we can do or could do. The at-fault driver did not have any kind of insurance.Who would be held responsible?! My father spent several nights at the hospital trying his best to recover. Needless to say we were all in a dark place. I called several law firms and companies to consult and retain an attorney for my father. The following struck a chord with me the most: not only was Mr. Ryan Cardoso the first person to call me back that same day at 6:30am, Ryan was the only attorney who called me directly. While every other law firms had their retainer specialist, paralegal or assistant reach out to me, Ryan Cardoso is hands-on. I was never pawned off. It was a breath of fresh air. This truly set the tone for my and Ryan’s relationship. After speaking with Ryan and Cheryl Whittaker a bit more, I knew we were in good hands. He, along with Ms. Cheryl were with us every step of the way. There were no such thing as dumb questions or concerns with these two. Whatever I needed, whenever I needed anything, they were there for me, always a text message or a phone call away. Throughout our whole unfortunate ordeal, my family and I always felt like we were the only clients they have because of their specialized care and attentiveness. I cannot say enough good things about Ms. Cheryl Whittaker too. Everyone should have a Cheryl in his or her life. For my father’s 5 day stay in the hospital, Fort Walton Beach Hospital sent us a $211,000+ bill. Cardoso and team handled everything from ambulance bills, dealing with the hospital billing department and the hospital’s attorney and helped us reduce the hospital bill significantly. They worked with my father’s auto insurance company and straightened everything out and fought for my dad to get a settlement to help with his recovery and move on with his life. In each conversation with Ryan and Cheryl while we talked business and other important legal things, they never failed to ask me how my father was doing. They will care for you as people, not just as clients as it was shown to me. Although this whole unfortunate and terrible ordeal happened, I and my family are glad that we met ,chose and went with Ryan Cardoso and his team. This is hands down the best personal injury law firm within the nearby cities and the best people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I stand by my review and testimony so much so that if anyone wants to reach out or talk to me about my experience with Cardoso Law, please reach out to me directly or contact the firm. They have my blanket approval to share my information. Thank you Cardoso team for everything!

Ryan satisfactorily closed our personal injury case. We went into it hesitant because we didn’t want to be wrapped up in legal issues for years since both of us walked away from the incident without any noticeable damages to our persons. We couldn’t have been more happy with the legal knowledge and result that Ryan produced for us. Beyond polite and informed. Thank you Ryan and your team!
