Harold Semanoff is not only a wonderful attorney but a wonderful person. He helped me through the toughest period of my life after being hit by a drunk driver. My medical expenses, surgeries and physical therapy was time consuming & painful. He spoke for me and advised me throughout each phase of this long process. (which gave me an opportunity to focus on my recovery while he handled all the legalities). He always explained the timeline of events with pending legal issues, insurance companies, hospital invoices and going to court to testify against the defendant. I could have never done this process on my own.
On a personal note: When I was having a particularly bad time after my second surgery - Harold said such kind and genuine words to cheer me up. He spoke to me like family or a friend. I will forever be grateful to him and his office for being there for me and my family. Out of five stars - he gets a 10.
Harold has been a true pleasure to work with! For all the bad things said about lawyers he is exactly the opposite. He gets back to you promptly and truly shows that he not only cares about your case but also about you personally. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for someone dependable! Thanks again Harold for all of your help. Steve and Brianne
It is my pleasure to recommend Harold for so many reasons and on so many levels. Harold is a kind, knowledgeable and compassionate Attorney. He is a pleasure to speak with and immediately set me at ease with his calm, honest and reassuring manner. Harold was ever so patient dealing with my physical limitations and clearly explained the legalities of the case speaking to me with my wife's help. Harold handled my case in a professional and timely manner to a successful resolution. I am proud to count him among my trusted advisers and recommend him without hesitation.
Harold is thorough, knowledgable and creative in his approach to his cases. His legal expertise is impeccable. Harold's interaction with clients is calm and supportive. I have worked with Harold as a client, and have referred other clients to him, without reservation.
Harold Semanoff is a rare individual who possesses the personal characteristics not usually associated with an attorney's reputation. His integrity, compassion and understanding are at the heart of what he is all about. I was involved in a car accident and Harold counseled me before and after my spinal surgery, not only on a professional level, but on a personal level as well. Sometimes I felt like I should send him my psychological payments! He helped me with my physical pain, in addition to my emotional pain. Harold has a very calming presence that was extremely helpful during my traumatic experience. Rather than telling me what to do, he allowed me the freedom to express my own concerns and fears and actually listened to me--It felt like we were a team rather than just being dictated to.
I've had the pleasure of dealing with Harold on multiple issues and he has always been a consumate professional. He is someone who I would absolutely recommend and I am proud to call him my friend as well as my attorney.
Mr. Semanoff was recommended to me by a friend that never had the need for an attorney, but knew of Harold's exceptional reputation as an experienced and caring attorney. Mr. Semanoff was direct and honest with me right from the very first meeting that we had. I was kept informed of every progress and every delay in my case and always with a clear, detailed explanation in terms that I could understand. Aside from the time and attention that he dedicated to my case, he dedicated his time and attention to me on a personal level throughout the obstacles I faced emotionally and physically. Without doubt I can truely say that I consider Harold to be more than just my attorney. I have become to trust him as a friend as well. I feel privileged to have had him as my attorney.
Mr. Semanoff represented me and my daughter (who was a minor at the time) when we were involved in a car accident. He and his firm worked with us, taking the time to make sure we understood what our rights were and was very caring about what we were going through physically and emotionally. He was the best attorney we could have advocating for our us during such a difficult time. Mr. Semanoff came to us very highly recommended by a close and personal friend who had used his services previously. We could not have been happier with the way we were represented and the outcome of our lawsuit.
Harold is an excellent lawyer! I am proud to say that he truly is trustworthy, caring, and responsive (which is rare in a lawyer).
While working with him on my case, he not only kept me informed, but cared enough about me as a person to check in to provide insight on my healthcare and treatment options (free), which actually didn't help nor hurt my case but was meant for my personal use only. My case is long over and he continues to provide assistance where he can and responds to all of my emails. I've recommended his services to family and friends and will not hesistate to call him "my lawyer" and my friend.
Harold has represented my clients,family and me for many years. He is an excellent attorney and great legal advisor. I have and will continue to send my clients to Harold knowing they are in good hands.
