Honest and Friendly Lawyer.
After my car accident, I was reluctant about hiring a lawyer to help with my claim. But after consulting with Rafael I felt much more at ease, he explained all the ins and outs about the law even to the point of not being compensated for his services. If you're looking for lawyers who will put your interests in the forefront, I highly recommend the Katz & Katz office.

Best Lawyer in South Florida
After contacting over 20 lawyers not one would help me out with my car insurance issue. When I finally got in touch with Rafael he took immediate action. He went out of his way and worked hard even with the little time frame we had in order to fix the matter. He went out of his way working on things he wasn't even obligated to. He kept in touch with me on a periodic basis and was a true gentleman. He didn't treat me like a client, more like a good friend. He settled my issue in less than a week. If you're looking for a lawyer that pertains to car issues Rafael Katz is your man.

Mr. Katz gave me great advice and put me at ease.
I was really nervous about a legal matter in my life, and until I spoke with Mr Katz I thought the worst outcome was certain. He put me at ease by explaining the law and my options. Thank you!

ONLY THE BEST
I used Rafael on an Insurance case recently and was very impressed on how fast he was able to settle my claim. Before I went to him, I kept getting the run around and nobody wanted to get my case finished. I highly recommend him.
