I have retained Mr. Biedrzycki on a few different occasions and all for different matters. He was able to assist on two issues and was up front about not being able to help on the other where he referred me to someone who was able to help. He kept me informed on all progress and was able to achieve more than favorable results on every occasion (even on the referral).
I specifically hired him on a collection case wherein I was ready to go to court. Mr. Biedrzycki was able to collect the receivable without the assistance of a trial thus saving me additional collection expenses and time. He also provided me with Real Estate closing services. He is extremely thorough which in today's real estate environment is more important than ever. I trust I can go to John for any issue and feel confident that either he will be the one to handle the case or steer me to someone else better equipped to do so.

Our son and daughter-in-law (three kids) had bought a house that was overvalued and at a loan rate that was beyond their means. Falling behind in payments they refinanced and got in even further trouble with no chance to recover. The resulting payments were way too high and principle was well beyond the value of the home. They couldn't and didn't make payment for some time before we learned of the situation and we asked John for help.
He listened to the problems but assured them that it was not beyond hope and they were not the only ones who might find thmselves is such a bad situation. We told him that we did not want to save the particular house but to let it go with as little damage as possible. My wife and I had decided with our credit rating to buy another house and rent it to our son and his family. John seemed to quickly understand the situation and had enough experience to suggest that we might be able to obtain a buy back from the bank without any continuing obligations which was more that we had expected. While we were looking for alternative housing, he kept us and our son fully advised and soon informed us that he was succeeding with his negotiations with the bank (including delays and reasonable slow responses) which never upset him nor did he allow it to upset us. He was always reassuring and informative about how things was going.
The results were that within two months he had gotten the bank to take back the house without any further obligations and to foregive all past failures to pay. But more significantly, he had even negotiated with the bank to have them pay our son several thousand dollar to cover the cost of quickly vacating the old house (which was our plans anyway). The money paid by the bank was more than seven times what the total bill was for John's services eventually were.
John was well-experienced and informative regarding our options and possibilities. He was realistic in his expectations and constantly keeped us advised which was very reasuring throughout. We could not have been more satisfied with the results or the experience considering the terrible predicament in which we had found ourselves. Because of him (and our own effects ) our son and family have a more satisfactory residence and are able without the previous cloud and threat over their heads to pay less than 2/3 what they previously paid for housing and my wife and I are glad to accept the new house as a reasonable investment for our future independent of the actions our son may choose in the future.
We highly recommend John for any legal action in the future.

John has helped me on more than one occasion, but most recently in a situation where I needed protection from a demanding landlord in a very bad economic year. He went to bat for me so quickly and strongly that I was able to breathe while he represented me. We were all able to come up with an agreement that worked very well for all of us because of his knowledge and experience in negotiation. John had a professional demeanor in his verbal and written communication that bode well for mediation of our situation. I appreciated his support of my business, and how he handled my case. He also checks in with me from time to time to see how I am doing - that follow-up is rare in attorneys!

John was very helpful in getting us through a minor mishap. He got back to me immediately with information, explained procedures and walked us through the process. He patiently answered our questions and addressed our concerns. I felt more confident having him on my side. And, he handled everything confidentially. Very professional.
