Excellent service!
Ansbacher Law firm - Barry Ansbacher, Thomas Jenks, and Zachary Roth - are a an amazing and professional team!! If they represent you, you can rest assure they have your back!! We were selling our property, and we had unusual hiccups, but fortunately, Ansbacher Law represented us in the best possible way, each one outstandingly as an individual, and as a team. If I were to recommend an attorney whom you can sleep at night with no worries- it would be Ansbacher Law!

Great Personal Injury Lawyer
Barry Ansbacher and his caring team helped me when I was hurt in a car accident. Unlike the big law mills Barry and his paralegal Teresa took the time to really look over my case. They explained the process and even took the time to help me get car rental coverage and a fair price for my damaged car (totaled). Because they actually go to court I knew that I would either get a fair settlement or my day in court. I could always get them on the phone and they kept me informed every step of the way. When my case settled and I was able to cover my medical and put away for the future. They even helped me get a discount on my medical bills.

Closing-Title Work and more
I was the realtor for the buyer. Great experience using Ansbacher Law. The process and staff were excellent. High grades for communication! As a side note, I've attended seminars with Attorney Ansbacher as the speaker for years. I know he does an amazing job with construction defects, so I had high hopes with a real estate closing. His office did not disappoint!!

Board Condo Certification Class
Great webinar! The information was presented in a professional and engaging manner. Barry used audience participation to keep everyone involved. The 2.5 hours was filled with lots of interesting and helpful data and the time moved along swiftly. I would highly recommend this class.

Quick, efficient real estate closing
Jacqueline Clay helped me sell my mother's condo after her passing. We had a buyer almost immediately who wanted to pay cash and close ASAP. Jacqueline quickly started the process. There were many documents and emails going back and forth between Jacqueline, the buyer, and myself as my mother's condo was in a trust. The buyer and I had an agreement over the phone, and Jacqueline made sure we did it legally and kept us on track as neither the buyer nor I really knew what was required for closing. My goal was to never have Ansbacher waiting on me for a response; and Ansbacher seemed to have the same goal! I was also able to do everything online, and since I live in another state, that was really helpful. The signing of the closing papers was also set up separately between the parties, which accommodated everyone's schedule. Overall, Ansbacher made a difficult time in my life much easier. Thank you!

HOA Webinar
I was totally surprised at how much info was shared by the hosts. I have been through many training seminars for work that are filled with fluff and could have been paired down to save some time. Your webinar was jam packed with relevant and useful information and guidelines. I expect to retake this as a refresher and to listen/learn from other participants Q&A.

Excellent legal help
Attorney Rhett Perret and his assistant Jacqueline Clay were especially helpful in solving an issue regarding the issuance of a new deed. They were prompt and professional. I would definitely use the Ansbacher firm again.

State Farm trying to recover monies
State Farm called me and said they were going to suspend my drivers license if I did not pay monies for an accident I was not part of. I paid 5k to stop the process. Went straight to Ansbacher law firm. They made one call to them and I had 5k back in my account in 10 minutes and they dropped my case. Excellent law knowledge and results. They are there for you if you need them for sure. Highly recommend them for law services

Efficient
Everything was seamless. I called to make an appointment for a consult and they took my information and scheduled my appointment with Zach. He had already reviewed my documents and gave me a dive in about 10 minutes time. I followed his advice and got my problem taken care of.

Comprehensive Home Contract Consultation
The contract review methodically detailed our rights, options, and various courses of action concerning contesting of a builder’s contract for home purchase . The explanations were presented well. As importantly , the attorney listened to background issues, and sought to present additional risks, and rewards given differing approaches. Overall, a positive experience.
