Professional and Prompt Attorney
I hired this firm to handle my debt disputes with a junk buying collection agency. They handle my case immediately and my case was dismissed with prejudice in a matter of a few weeks. This collection has been removed already off my credit report. Thank you, Attorney Drach!

Great job!
These guys are amazing! I’ve just contacted Amanda once and provided all the information on my case. Within two months she sent me an email that my case is resolved on my behalf with zero payment!!! They even cleaned my credit history. I definitely recommend!

Excellent Service
Justin Drach Attorneys are the best and most qualified lawyers. My case was resolved quickly in my favor. Words can not express my gratitude for the professional and excellent service I received from Thoele-Drach Attorneys & Counselors at Law.

Baker Act Hold
While doing some preliminary research about my 13 year old's Baker Act, I came across Justin's page and immediately called for advice. We voluntarily committed her on a Wednesday after suffering a major anxiety attack and they had no plans to release her to our care more than 48 hours later, suggesting they would keep her for another 5-6 days for "observation". With Justin's help, and at no cost to our family, he provided expert advice that got my child released within 2 hours of our conversation. I cannot tell you appreciative I am about how he helped alleviate the stress of our situation, and how happy we are to have our child back in our home. In full disclosure, I was ready to pay his retainer because it would have been worth it--absolutely worth it. It's a Godsend that this attorney had the experience with the system to get her out--mental healthcare shouldn't be a scam.

Professional, Caring, and Efficient
I was served papers to appear in court as I was being sued by a debt collection company. This had never happened to me before and I was extremely fearful and distraught. I began receiving many letters by mail from legal firms to take my case. As I began reading through them, the letter from Mr. Drach stood out to me most because it presented a straightforward, down-to-earth, unsensational offer of help. After getting up my nerve I made the call to him explaining my situation and asked for help. I could not have made a better decision. Within two weeks he had resolved the matter in my behalf. I am forever grateful for his help and I highly recommend Mr. Drach to anyone facing legal debt issues.

Better than I could have imagined
I am pleased to add my voice to those who have posted here in appreciation for the job Attorney Drach has provided to me. I was searching far and wide for legal services but was not having much success in finding representation that I could feel confidence in. I was somewhat cynical when Atty Drach's office responded to my inquiry and stating he had reviewed my case and may be willing to take it on after an initial meeting. I was primarily skeptical because I had not provided the case information or the specifics of the name / entity that I was a part of. I was very surprised that he had not only found a way to associate me with the entity I represented but had also identified the case, reviewed it and was thoroughly prepared to discuss both background and strategy. I would not be disappointed with my decision to engage him either. When it has become the norm for some attorneys to take a case primarily focused on growing revenue for themselves, it has been extremely satisfying to associate with an attorney and firm that puts the clients interest first and without billing for every potential dollar they can. Thank you Attorney Drach and staff for a job very well done.

Immediate Action
I am not a paid advertisement. My name is John Foster. Mr. Drach knew me for a matter of minutes before he arranged to arrive hours away. My wife was sitting in a hospital bed under a great deal of stress thinking she was forgotten. Facility would not allow visitors, and refused to communicate with me (her husband for 23+ years). Mr. Drach treated us as if it were his loved one in the hospital. A man of action from the moment the conversation ended. Immediate action. From the moment you talk to him you can hear it in his voice. I recommend very little in this world. I can say without reservation that Mr. Drach is the fighter you need in your corner. He will forever have my respect and gratitude. Thank you Justin.

Excellent All Around Service
I was amazed that my call for consultation was answered immediately as it was after 5. After speaking with Justin and his reassurance of the process, I knew immediately that he was the legal counsel I wanted to represent me so I hired right away. The entire process was smooth, speedy, and stress free! The service was very professional and I am completely happy with my decision to hire. Thank you for sending the mail advertising that prompted me to contact you and thank you for taking my case.

Amazing work, quick turnaround, zero stress!
I received a bunch of very ominous letters from a collections firm, and I didn’t know what to do about it. I contacted another attorney, who promised they’d call me back and left me waiting for a week before saying she wasn’t taking new clients. Thoele and Drach’s letter happened to be on top of my pile of mail that day, and I gave them a call. Within 72 hours I had officially retained them, and within less than 30 days they had my case entirely dismissed! Zero stress for me in the process, while still keeping me in the loop the whole time. I cannot thank them enough for saving my credit and my sanity!

Excellent Attorney, Great Results
Attorney Justin Drach recently helped me with a Family Law situation, he was able to walk through the process with me and successfully closed our case with the best possible results. I would highly recommend Justin for any Family Law needs. He is a great attorney who gets the results you are looking for. I know he also handles Personal Injury, Estate Planning, and Consumer Protection including debt defense and creditor harassment. I would not trust another attorney to handle my legal matters.

Justin did a fantastic job with my case. He was very informative on the phone explaining all my options to me. He got the lawsuit against me thrown out and got it removed from my credit report. I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much for everything!

Invaluable
Justin was extremely courteous and accommodating. The information that he gave me over the phone was instrumental in me being able to go to Emerald Coast behavioral to arbitrate my daughters release five days earlier than they demanded, and in less than what emerald coast directors said was a mandatory 72 hours. Justin also offered me immediate assistance via his airplane if I was not able to procure my daughter from this establishment immediately. I would sincerely hope that another parent does not require his assistance, but I would absolutely recommend him.
