Unemployment Compensation
I reached out to Mr Zawarski to discuss my unemployment compensation denial due to a “rule violation” at work. He was able to easily show that I did not engage in any willful misconduct towards my employer at my Appeal Hearing and I was granted benefits. I found him to be very helpful in explaining things to me and he was always quick to respond when I reached out to him. I wouldn’t hesitate to use his services again should I ever need to!

Easy eviction
I contacted Mr. Zawarski about some unpaying tenants. I recieved fast responses and easy explanation of procedure.Being that this was my only eviction I also enjoyed the honest expectations of my case. I wasn't misled into thinking I would gain the world just the facts of the case. I highly recommend him to anyone facing this situation themselves.

New client
I recently had a need for Mr. Zawarski's services and selected him based on his reviews, and I am glad I did. I have had need more than once for an attorney in the last fifty years, and I can honestly say he was professional, efficient and considerate. He took action immediately and got to the point quickly which I always appreciate, and I am not used to that kind of service in legal matters if you know what I mean. Best counsel I have received by a mile.

Security Deposit Help
I contacted Mr. Zawarski after my previous landlord didn't return my security deposit and wasn't responding to my calls. Turns out Mr. Zawarski personally knew my landlord and was not going to represent me against him. He not only cleared up the issue with my landlord but also returned his initial “fee” that I paid, so I was able to get my security deposit back at no cost. Mr. Zawarski is definitely the trustworthy lawyer any client would want to be represented by.

A true professional.
Zachary dealt with our foreclosure in a truly professional manner. Took his time and answered all of our questions. He gave honest straight forward advice and guidance. Was able to work with our lender where others had failed and was able to get us into a modification. He was always available to talk and to return emails if something came up. Would absolutely recommend him for any of your legal needs in fields that he works in.

ZZ is TOPS he really Rocks and Rolls in his Field
My wife and I needed a Bankruptcy Attorney. We went to a few and one tried to lock us into a long term 5 year term payoff chapter 11.But when we met Zach we knew immediately from the first few minutes he was a special guy set apart from the others . It begins at home. His family upbringing. I can tell when a man comes from being raised in a home built on honesty and trust and good ideals and it shows how in the way Zachary does things executes what he does and treats his clients with dignity and Respect not just trying to get their money. When people come to him he is very very understanding that when someone makes the choice to go to down the road of Bankruptcy they are folks down on their Luck. He treats Clients with Dignity and Respect as I felt it .He is one amazing Attorney.The best attorney so far in my 66 years on this Earth. If you don't feel he is the best you will find no better. He treats you like family.Give him a try.What do you have to lose. The Consultation will make you believe as I did. He is Magic.

Lease Agreement Change
I first sought a consultation regarding a lease agreement that was unable to be fulfilled due to extraneous circumstances. Attorney Zawarski was attentive and informative. For a minimal fee, he represented my interests. He showed dedication, professionalism, and kindness. As a result, he succeeded in preserving my financial interests. His responsiveness was remarkable. I highly recommend his services. He is an honest, informative, and dedicated professional.

Defeated the unbeatable with Zachary, Overturned unemployment denial
I had the opportunity to work with attorney Zawarski last month pertaining to my unemployment benefits case against ex employer. He was thoughtful, thorough, intelligent, very knowledgeable, as well as realistic. He explained the pros and cons about my case while being very professional as well as making me feel like he really cared about the outcome. He explained to me that if he was unable to get a favorable verdict for me he would work out an equitable adjustment to his fees. We prepared for the referee hearing and all in all he was very effective and i was awarded unemployment benefits. The excellent customer service he provided turned me into a loyal client. If you have a case you need help with don't hesitate to contact attorney Zawarski he will give you accurate, truthful advice,as well as excellent representation at a reasonable price. When you feel like your up against a loosing battle, attorney Zawarski levels the odds. I don't know what i would of done if it wasn't for him.

Professional, Knowledgeable, at a reasonable rate
Zachary helped sort through the mess when my previous employer and I split ways. I applied and was approved for unemployment benefits. When they appealed, Zachary walked me through the process and helped formulate a strategy. They ultimately withdrew their appeal, in my opinion because of correspondence and supporting documentation Zachary sent in prior to the hearing. I'll be hiring him again if I need a lawyer, and I recommend you do too.

A Gifted Attorney
Attorney Zawarski successfully argued my appeal before the Pennsylvania Unemployment Compensation Board. After presenting him with the facts, he easily identified several weaknesses in the opposing party’s position that I overlooked. I was equally impressed at the speed with which he formed a complete understanding of the chain of events. He put both the perspective of the pertinent issues and his foundation for his defense in a clear concise and easily understood plan. Communication with Mr. Zawarski was a pleasure. He was quick to return phone calls and followed up with emails in a timely manner. His professional and sympathetic demeanor coupled with an unshakable confidence was comforting. I highly recommend him and am convinced others will equally enjoy the satisfaction I experienced.

I won my unemployment denial for being self employed
Zachary was fantastic from start to finish. I had filed for unemployment in March of 2015 and was denied due to my being self employed. Thanks to both Google and Zachary I was able to win the appeal in May of 2015 and receive all of the benefits due me. I first called him and met with him immediately. He advised me of my situation as well as the law. He knew exactly what I needed to provide him to make my case. With his assistance we were able to prepare for the appeal hearing and won. At the hearing not only was he totally prepared, but also extremely knowledgeable. I should mention that every time I called him I either got him immediately or a prompt return phone call. I would highly recommend anyone who is self employed and denied benefits to at least call him. The phone consultation was free.

Prevented My Home From Being Foreclosed
I met with Zachary because my home was in active foreclosure. He explained the foreclosure process in a way that was easy to understand, laid out possible options, and gave me advice as to what my next steps should be. I went into the meeting feeling overwhelmed, totally at sea, and pretty hopeless - I walked out of the meeting feeling like I had a grip on what was going to happen and what could happen, and relieved that things weren't as totally bleak as I'd thought. That alone was priceless. Within about 15 minutes of getting home (!!) from that meeting, there was a message from Zachary that he had already done some work on several items, and a few hours later there was another message that he'd filed an appeal because I'd been turned down for a loan modification. When I'd originally been denied the loan modification I didn't think I had any grounds to appeal the decision, but Zachary thought I did and filed the appeal within hours of our meeting for the first time. Now a few weeks later the appeal has been granted and I'll be able to keep my home. Zachary was knowledgable and helpful, and immediately started working on my behalf. He left voice messages and sent emails so I was always informed of what he was doing and where things stood, plus he always gave me a timeline as to when I might expect something to happen. His fees are reasonable - and I feel I got more than my money's worth. I really can't say enough about him. If I ever need a lawyer again for any reason, he's the one I'll call.

Unemployment Appeal
Having Mr. Zawarski represent myself in my Unemployment Appeal hearing was a great decision. His level of preparedness and knowledge of the law made me feel very comfortable about my situation. He was always available and attentive during our meetings, asking questions that I wouldn't have thought about. Regardless of the outcome of my case, I felt very confident that Mr. Zawarski was doing his best to help me out, and fortunately the hearing resulted in my favor.
