“I had the pleasure of being represented by this company in a very important business matter. Aside from an outstanding and nuanced knowledge of the law, the attorneys showed compassion, care and personal interest in the well being of my business and my family circumstances. Moreover, they went above and beyond in recommending and providing additional resources to greatly aid to the positive outcome of the case, showing consideration for the billing hours, saving my resources a great deal. I particularly wanted to highlight the work of Kelby Van Patten and Blake A. Dillion. I couldn’t have had better people in my corner. I HIGHLY recommend this company to business owners anywhere in America, where competence, compassion and in depth understanding of the situation make all the difference in defending hard-earned reputation and business.”

Alexander Panov, INTALENTMEDIA

“With over 35 years of in-house counsel and executive operations experience, I have worked with many law firms throughout the U.S. Payne & Fears is at the top of my list of law firms for handling commercial litigation and employment law matters on the West Coast based upon the highest level of competence, responsiveness and cost-effectiveness that has been delivered. They also stand apart with the highest ethical standards and, might I add, a not often seen virtue of humility among their partners.”

Executive Vice President & General Counsel, National Highway Equipment Dealer and Distributor

“Payne & Fears lawyers understand the nuances and are always thinking ahead. It is like a partnership, not just advice. You know them and they know you and how you operate, and that is half the battlegiving the right guidance, not just telling you what to do.”

“Your support at Payne and Fears is top rate and it is such a pleasure to work with someone who understands business and offers a conservative, yet aggressive approach – not very easy but something that you seem to demonstrate well! You are always my first choice of outside counsel.”

Senior Vice President, Human Resources, International Consumer Goods Company

“The Payne & Fears litigators I worked with, Benjamin Nix and David Grant, were exceptional. In sum, they were: deeply engaged in every aspect of my case; always ahead of the opposition procedurally, technically, and strategically; and providers of truly thoughtful and pragmatic counsel. And when I say, ‘we prevailed in the matter,’ that is a significant understatement.”

Senior Executive, California technology company

“Payne & Fears redefines the legal nickname of ‘Big Law’ by crafting a unique Big-Boutique-Law experience that brings you into the family through brilliant collaborations, genuine trust, and constant communication. The firm’s reputation of success spans far greater than the many branches they have located throughout the country. Lawyers such as David Grant and Benjamin Nix make an indelible mark on your life as they live the moment with you to ensure that your facts are heard within a comprehensive and well-built strategy.” 

Vice President, California Construction Company

“I had a business dispute with a former partner of mine that needed to be handled. I had the pleasure of working with David Grant, who took the time to familiarize himself with my case and, most importantly, was also very sensitive and sympathetic to the fact that I was working with limited resources. Long story short, the matter was handled outside of court in a timely fashion. I would highly recommend this place for all of your business legal needs.”
