About me


"There are many lawyers to choose from, however, there is only one Ansara Law Firm. I have dedicated my life to defending those charged with criminal offenses as well as prosecuting claims involving serious injury or death stemming from the negligence of another. As a local trial attorney in Broward, Dade, and Palm Beach County I understand how to handle myself in any courtroom with the skill and knowledge that is necessary in order to achieve success for my clients. I believe that my clients should have unrestricted access to their attorney and should always be kept informed on the status of their pending case. I believe legal representation should be aggressive, affordable, honest, and reliable. Sticking to our principals has launched this firm into unimaginable success. I would like to thank our clients who have been our greatest promoters and God for always giving me the strength and wisdom necessary to maintain victorious."
