Drew Ruzanski: Knight in Shining Armor
I cannot recommend Drew Ruzanski Esq. enough to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable, experienced, and compassionate estate attorney. I recently worked with Drew to create a will and trust for my father who suddenly became very ill, and was incredibly impressed with his services. He was knowledgeable, and took the time to understand my specific needs and goals. He also made sure that I understood the implications of my decisions, and he was always available to answer my questions. In addition he was incredibly compassionate towards my family's challenging situation and made sure I was comfortable through it all. I would not hesitate to recommend Drew to anyone who is looking for estate planning and administration!

A Pleasure to Work With!
Drew Ruzanski recently drew up a new will for my mom after my dad passed away. He took his time explaining everything to her that was in the new will, and did it in a very caring manner. He is a wonderful person to work with. He always got back to us immediately with any questions that we had along the way. I would highly recommend Drew Ruzanski for any legal issues as he is very detail-oriented and a pleasure to work with!

Honest and straightforward
Mr. Ruzanski explained everything in full detail, as to what we needed to be concerned with and what didn't need to be addressed with our estate planning. From start to finish, he took the time to explain and then set up our wills, so that our family can rest assured that whatever happens, all the details have been taken care of to maximize our estate.
