Mr. Ansara is amazing, I called him from New York City over the phone and he provided service as if I was there in his home state , I didn't have a credit card so I mailed him a check , he was quick about everything and always answered my calls and spoke to me on my level of education, Mr. Ansara kept me informed on everything I needed to know , and his price is reasonable, I hope I never need him again, but if I did he would be the one that I would hire and like to have on my side , very kind , patient and understanding, down to earth kind of guy , and very knowledgeable

Rich Ansara has been a lawyer that i could count on. From criminal to personal injury he has been a winner. A defense attorney well worth whatever the amount is and whatever the case maybe he has been a winner. He has a group of very knowlegeable associates and know the system and how things operate within the courthouse too. I am very greatful to know him as a person and my attorney. My recent outcome from these charges have the state dropping all charges against me and i strongly believe in Rich and the law firm.

Mr. Ansara was friendly, direct and specific from start to finish about everything involved from interacting with me directly, returning calls promptly, and delivering on a positive outcome which after analyzing my case was easily able to explain and pinpoint our advantages on the day of trial. For this I'm truly thankful and fortunate to have worked with him and would recommend him highly to anybody looking for a down-to-earth attorney that delivers results.

Richard was thorough, patient and went above and beyond to make a hard time for my family a little more bearable. We could tell from the first consultation that we didn't have to worry, he took care of my son and his case as if he were taking care of a family member. I pray we never need a criminal defense attorney again, but if we do, there is NO doubt who we're going to!

My experience with Richard was very pleasant. He is not just a lawyer, he's a human being capable of sympathy and understanding while remaining professional at the same time. He is very knowledgeable of the court system and an effective attorney. I will definitely choose him again as my lawyer in the future, if the need should arise. He's an exceptional lawyer, confident, reliable and friendly. I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need. I'm lucky to have found him!

When falsely accused of stalking, my career and reputation stood at the mercy of a system known to be unkind to minorities. Everything I worked for and everything I hoped to become was threatened. I called The Ansara Law Firm 48 hours before my hearing and talked to Alan Siegel. I told him my story, shared my anxiety, and expressed my disillusionment with a system that allows for unsubstantiated accusations to not only have space in the legal system but to be used as a weapon against people's livelihood. Alan asked me to come to his office, offering to stay late--well past 7pm. I agreed; and after meeting with him, I had my legal representation. Alan gave me confidence and hope. He assured me that he and Richard Ansara knew the process, knew the nuances that escalated and de-escalated cases like mine, knew how to counter attack the charges, and knew the personality of the judge presiding over my case. "Hire us," he said "and go home and sleep easy!"
On the day of my hearing, I walked in the courthouse with family and friends that would testify on my behalf. The courthouse was packed and divided between accusers and accused. As I walked through the mass to sign in, I saw my accuser, the other lawyer, and their court-reporter. They stared back at me with an aura of confidence and anticipation. Despite my innocence, I was scared and uncertain.
Richard Ansara arrived ten minutes later. While lawyers waited and lounged next to their clients, Richard walked in and immediately began working. First we talked, then he greeted the Sheriffs, the clerks, and the interns. He peered into the courtroom, took note of the court schedule, and talked to other lawyers. Unlike everyone else (including other lawyers) who sat waiting, he took control of the environment. It seemed like this was his domain, his territory, and he was comfortable in it. He approached my accuser's lawyer and asked to speak in a quiet area. Alone, Richard proceeds to tell this confident lawyer why he will lose this case, how he will lose this case, and describes the manner in which he will lose this case. Richard took control and shook the other lawyers confidence! Within one hour and before stepping one foot into the courtroom, where anything could happen, my accuser agreed to not only dismiss the charges but also walk the other way if ever seeing me on the street. In less than 48 hours of being accused of stalking, I had become the stalked and had a signed declaration from my accuser implying it! The Ansara firm saved my career and salvaged my reputation! Thank you, Alan! Thank you, Richard! Hiring your firm was one of the best decisions I have made. To all seeking legal counsel, I wholeheartedly recommend The Ansara Law Firm. Hire them and sleep easy!!

I had a dui case and Mr. Ansara made it go as smooth as possible. He was able to time everything so I could get a new company up and running without the dui effecting my ability to drive. He also has gone well out of his way to handle other small legal matters without asking for a dime! He answers his phone and always has a stream lined solution to any problem.

The five star review of their law firm was an early indicator of their excellence. However, since we live in Chicago and could not have in-person consultation I called to speak to them to decide for myself. From the very first conversation both Richard and Alan have assured me that not only will they be able to resolve my husband's almost ten year old DUI case but they will do it in a timely manner. Richard has also advised us on how to proceed with this case as it will later relate to my husband's separate immigration case. Everything was resolved on time as promised, no extra hidden fees, impeccable customer service, FULL INTEGRITY!!! Sense of humor also a plus in stressful situations. I would hire them again in a heart beat & recommend to my family and best friends. Great job Richard & Alan!

Mr. Ansara was referred to me by my boyfriend after getting into a car accident in January. He came highly recommended, so I decided to retain no questions asked. That was the best decision. He is very professional, and knows what he's doing. Richard definitely delivered. He told me exactly how the process worked and what I needed to do on my part. He did his part. I'm very happy with the results. I definitely recommend him to anyone looking a personal injury lawyer. You're in good hands!
