Phone Consultation - Real Estate Law
Mr. Jiranek is a consummate professional who knows the law like the back of his hand. He listened intently to my case, asked several questions and worked to wholly understand my situation. In the end he provided sound legal advice and educated me on a few pointers I was not aware of. All-in-all, Mr. Jiranek is an A1 lawyer and someone I would hire if my case escalates.

Outstanding Representation
Drew has consistently and efficiently handled all our legal issues in real estate, transactional and other civil matters for several years. He is extremely knowledgeable, principled and a very strong advocate. He is backed by a first rate team. I would recommend his firm without any reservation!

Reassuring service, and effective representation in an uncertain situation.
Very knowledgeable responsive and focused. Effectively respond to an unfounded accusation by my HOA. I was reassured by his letter of representation; and when my insurance company faltered, his confidence was inspiring. In a worse case scenario if we go to court, I feel confident. Couldn't ask for better representation. Hiring Mr. Jiranek was the only positive part of this whole ordeal, and it feels good knowing he's on my side!

Andrew has helped me through all kinds of legal issues, from buying a company to the last selling a company. He has always pushed to get what I ask for from the seller or buyer, he maintaned constant contact with me providing his opinion and reviewing what we could or could not do. He has given advise to company employees, written letters for them and he is the executor of our escrow account. Great Corporate lawyer and friend.

Andrew Jiranek is our attorney for both WWS and ACE. He a very ethical and trustworthy man. He is very knowledgeable in corporate law, both, for profit and non-profit companies. Andrew is presently working with us to develop and manage a non-profit company in STEM education for grades 4-12. He is reviewing the Business Plan and Proforma and is a great consultant to the project. I can say without any doubt he is a great friend and attorney. We recommend his law firm and the team members who support him.

I highly recommend using Drew Jiranek for legal services.
Drew has provided various services over the years, with one of the most notable being his representation of our bank in a work out situation with a loan client. He assisted us with each step in the process, protected our position and helped to structure a resolution that resulted in the full recovery of a seven figure debt. He provided full explanations of our options, and guidance on the consequences of alternative strategies. He remained calm and objective throughout the process, despite the emotionally charged environment. Drew is thoughtful, tough when necessary, extremely well versed in business law, and highly responsive to changing demands .
