Legal Entities Need more People like Mr. Golab
I was searching for a Copyright Law Attorney because of a letter I received from another lawyer threatening me because I posted a wedding video on YouTube that contained a popular song that allegedly violated copyright laws. As a very small Wedding Video company I got very scared. To my surprise Mr. Golab answered the phone himself and it was already 7:00PM when I called! He actually gave me free advice and the GOOD kind of advice which is why I am still going to hire him in the near future to write a few contracts for me to use in my business. I am very pleased to have spoken to him! I believe that Mr. Golab has passion for what he does; it's not every day you speak to an attorney that is willing to help the way he did. Legal entities need more people like Mario Golab.

Mario Golab, A+ Service
I don't have enough words to express how happy I am to have contracted Mario Golab as my legal counsel several times. But I shall try: Mario has played an important role in the development and operations of both my businesses, as well as some of my clients'. His ethics, knowledge and evident interest in collaborating with my companies' success are invaluable. He always makes himself available to quickly and intelligently resolve issues, and his willingness to contribute with ideas beyond the scope of his assignment makes me feel I have more than an attorney in my team, I have a partner.

Dr.Golab is a knowledgeable and outstanding law professional!
My partner and I went to Dr.Golab based on a recommendation to assist us with a patent for an invention. From the beginning, Dr.Golab showed nothing but the upmost in professionalism and courtesy. Throughout the whole process, he made us feel comfortable. He turned a very complicated process into an easily understandable and clear process. I felt that he was a guide walking us through every step of the way from beginning to end. I continue to keep close communication with Dr.Golab as he is an outstanding resource with a clear vision in the vast, complicated world of Law and would absolutely recommend his services to anyone who requires an Attorney. Thank you, Dr.Golab, for everything, as having a lawyer like you on my side is a great feeling and you have earned my trust!

SMARTEST LAWYER AROUND
Over the years I have had experience dealing with eight lawyers in various matters. Dr. Golab is by far the smartest, wisest, most detail oriented professional I have ever met. Dr. Golab’s attention to every aspect of my case, and his sophisticated mind, allows him to draw from his vast experience for my benefit. I felt understood, cared for, and above all Dr. Golab’s always put my interest first. He explained all details of his strategy and answered my questions thoroughly. I highly recommend Dr Golab for any matter he can handle.
