Lawyer par excellence
I was in a very difficult situation during the oncoming COVID crisis and on the verge of a catastrophe with my company and personal finances. I went to Lawyer Andrew M. Thaler for advice. I was very impressed by his patience in hearing out my problems and his self confidence and knowledge of the law in his honest recommendations on the course of action to be taken for the best outcome in my situation, without any bias for his own financial enrichment. But what was more astounding was the flexibility he showed during and after the court case. With Andrew, it is not money by the minute, but integrity, his work ethics and his compassion for the client. I recommend Andrew to anybody who wants a pleasant and the right experience and at the same time, deal with an excellent lawyer.

Excellent Advocate
Mr. Thaler is an excellent attorney who does exactly what he says he will do. He and his staff are prompt, attentive, and responsive to requests concerning the legal matter he is hired for. His knowledge of Federal Bankruptcy Laws is second to none and I completely felt that he knew what he was talking about and what the possible outcomes of the litigation would be. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to hire counsel for a Federal Bankruptcy related legal matter.
