Attorney par excellence
Attorney Zandrow not only successfully won the appeal of my case at the Appeals Court, but he is an attorney who you would wish to be your long-time friend. He knows not just how to listen, but how to hear clients. His deep understanding of the legal matters and encyclopedic knowledge of law combined with ability to clear and convincingly present issues at the hart of the case are the qualities you find only in the most experienced and brilliant lawyers. His honesty and ethical standards exceed all expectations. Attorney Zandrow is the best attorney one can hope to find for a representation.
