The Go-To and Number 1
Joe is the go-to attorney for personal injury cases. He's a genuine expert, anticipating the next steps with precision. His thorough preparation consistently gives him the advantage in every case he handles. I've already referred a couple of friends to him, and their positive feedback assures me that it was the right decision.

The best!
Mr. Ghabour represented us in the purchase of our home and we have nothing but great things to say about him. He was responsive, attentive, understanding and explained things to us in a simple way. He made the entire process smooth and we always felt we were safe and in good hands. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer to represent me. And off-course I cannot write this review without mentioning and thanking Mrs. Ann Bronicki. She was absolutely amazing and was always quick to answer my questions and emails. She is very experienced and made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. So thank you so much Ann. They both make an amazing team and highly recommend them for any real estate or personal injury matters. You won’t regret it!!

EXCELLENT LAWYER AND TEAM
Went through such an easy process of buying my first home. Ann was incredible! She worked so well with all parties involved and kept everyone on the same page. It almost felt like I didn't have to do anything at all because she already took care of it. You will not be disappointed with this team.

Wonderful experience !!
Short sales can be very intimidating. However, once we hired Mr. Ghabour and his great staff, our fears of the entire process were gone. Any questions we had, our calls were returned quickly. Our dealings were mostly with Ann. She took the time to explain everything as time went on. She always treated us on a personal level. She made sure that all of the paperwork was taken care of in a timely fashion, even if it meant she had to go out of her way to get it done. Thanks to Mr. Ghabour and Ann, we have completed our process. We are forever grateful to them.

Joe did our house closing
This review is a little bit overdue, but very well deserved. Mr. Ghabour represented me during my house closing. He and his staff were EXCEPTIONAL!!! They handled all matters quickly and professionally. Any time I had a concern they immediately addressed it and resolved all issues that arose throughout the process. The response time for documents, inquires, or just simple questions was practically same day. This was our first home buying experience. The knowledge and expertise that Mr. Ghabour brought to the table made the process effortless on our behalf. We closed on our house more than a year ago, and to this day if I have any questions or concerns about my property Mr. Ghabour always responses in timely and professional manner. He addressed my concerns and has been helpful from our first offer, negotiations, insurance issues, our closing, and just last week escrow and tax questions that arose with my mortgage company. I would highly recommend Mr. Ghabour and his team to anyone in need of a lawyer that looks out for your best interest. Thank you Joe for everything!!

Issue Free Real Estate Closing
Joseph and Ann are dedicated professionals. Their hard work in the weeks and days leading up to the purchase of my first home made the whole process about as smooth it could be. Joseph navigated me through unanticipated issues with banks and the local government. I would recommend their services to anyone who needs real estate representation.

Happy 1st Home Buyer
We closed on our first home with JMG and the staff was great with assisting us along the way. Both Mr. Ghabour and his paralegal, Ann, were easily reachable when we had any questions. They have a beautiful office located right on 34 which is where we scheduled our closing. The closing went smooth and everything was perfect. Mr. Ghabour went through all the paperwork and reviewed everything with us before we signed and were handed our keys. Overall, so happy we had a great experience buying our first home!

Real Estate Transaction(s)
Joseph Ghabour & Ann assisted my fiance and I with our real estate transaction that has turned into several transactions due to some interesting circumstances. Throughout this process we've had some difficulties with overreaching sellers and attornies. I consider myself fairly knowledgable in the areas of law and work with contracts professionally as well. Ghabour's office was very professional and always thorough in their responses to my general queries about the seller's position and our subsequent responses. We are both very happy with our decision to secure them for our representation in this hectic process. All responses and actions have been timely and accurate, making an otherwise arduous process much more comfortable for the two of us. I would absolutely recommend Joseph Ghabour for any real estate transaction.

Review of Ghabour & Associates
My fiancée and I are currently in the process of purchasing a home and contracted Ghabour & Associates after reading reviews about them online. We're picky people so we wanted to make sure we had an Attorney that was knowledgeable in real-estate, and would represent our best interests. We've already gone through a couple contracts due to some unforeseen issues and they've always been there to give us guidance and assistance throughout the whole process. I honestly cannot say enough great things about this practice & the staff. Joseph and Ann have been incredibly responsive and anytime we call or email them with questions we usually have an answers within an hour if not minutes of reaching out. I highly recommend using Joseph M. Ghabour & Associates, LLC. for their services.
