Happy cliente
Mr.Drantivy has gone above and beyond my expectations in helping me. He has provided me with excellent service, taking time from his busy schedule to assist me with the filing of numerous ex parte matters that were, many times, filed the same day as the need arose. He has taken time to listen to my concerns and returns my calls and emails promptly. He has fought tenaciously on my behalf. I highly recommend Mr. Drantivy to anyone who needs excellent legal representation.

Great Attorney
We hired Mr. Drantivy, to do an operating and a shareholder agreement. He was recommended by a friend of mine so we decided to go ahead an use him. We had an operating agreement in place before, that needed to be amended, ( really re-written ). Mr. Drantivy took his time with it, gave us very good pointers that my previous lawyers did not, he gave us very good advice in general. We were very happy with the final product. He went above and beyond of what was required of him to make sure that we are happy. He did not hesitate to call when he had questions for us and was very responsive when we needed to make changes / ask him questions. Overall we were very happy with his service and would recommend him to anyone looking for a smart eager attorney. Mr Drantivy was very driven to get results and meticulous in his research. We have used Mr. Drantivy since then on a few occasions personal and professional, and were always satisfied with the results. I personally have recommended Mr. Drantivy to a few friends who have hired him, they have thanked me after for giving them his contact information . Would recommend to anyone looking for a professional hard working attorney.

Mr. Drantivy was recommended to me by his former client, and I am glad I took the advice and made an appointment. He was very responsive to my phone calls, very understanding of my schedule, kept me informed every step of the way, and was very professional. I am sure I'll be coming back to him in the future.
