The best
Have had no issues with him, not only with Case wise also Fee wise. Very much affordable and work with your Case personally. I went through many prior lawyers. No one as good as him.

A Consumate Professional
I found Mr. Zalewski through a friend of mine. I found Mr. Zalewski to be very knowledgeable about landlord/tenant disputes. He was able to cite numerous cases that would support my pending litigation against my landlord. After my initial consultation with him, I went online and looked up the cases he had quoted and I was very surprised to find that everything he had just told me, off the top of his head, was there in black and white.

This guy is a hack!
Terrible attorney! He was assigned as my 18b for a family court matter and did not appear twice for my appearances! He never returned any of my calls, I don't think he even knew that he was appointed to represent me. When I was finally able to get in contact with him, he had the audacity to accuse me of doing drugs! Unbelievable. Do Not Hire This Man! He does not care about his clients.

Honesty, dedication and a love of the law which means. giving back to others who lack our understanding of the law. The thousands years of combined legal experience of professionals activity participating in forum represent some of the very best of our profession, which is after all, at its base is desire to those in need.
