We engaged Andrew Mayoras when it became clear that a conflictual family situation had developed that would require legal guidance. Andrew's knowledge about elder law and trusts were invaluable. He was very responsive and because of our interest in being involved; he shared much of the process with us and allowed us to provide input to documents. He took the time to educate us about the law, process, and what to expect. Even though our situation had unusual twists and turns, Andrew believed and understood our position and was effective in advocating for our rights; and ultimately winning our trial case based upon the facts. He was always respectful, polite, and sensitive to all the difficult dynamics at play. There are many traits that I valued in Andrew, but his ethics and integrity I greatly appreciated. This was evident not only in his counsel to us, but in his court appearances and settlement meetings; a stark contrast to the other side's attorneys. I would not hesitate in recommending him to others.

We are from out of state, and had a Michigan lawyer that was handling our case...we were getting nowhere as our case was being dragged along. We began searching, and found our Godsend!!! Without Andy, we would have lost everything!! Mr. Mayoras is precise, professional, and the best litigator you WANT and NEED on your side!! I thank God for Andy, and appreciate his hard work. He has the same enthusiasm today as he had on day one. Thank you Andy!!

Andy is a very honest, intelligent, insightful attorney.
He pays great attention to the all important details.
If you want a lawyer who keeps you informed and does a great job...
I more than recommend Andrew Mayoras.
Thank you for all your help Andy.

If you are looking for a calm, collected and confident attorney who is experienced, knowledgeable, caring, trustworthy and accessible, Andy Mayoras is the one. Any attorney can win an easy case. But not all cases are easy. Most are not. Not everything goes as planned. Sometimes, things go bad. When things get crazy, tempers flare and the chips are down, Andy is right there with a calm voice of reason and experience. He knows when to speak up in court when he needs to and knows when to shut up when you are winning. In addition, Andy is accessible on evenings and weekends and is dedicated to helping his clients. His work ethic and client compassion are exemplary. Plus, he favored my position over my brother's position (also a client) once so you know he is smart!

I would not hesitate to recommend Andy after he handled my claim for breach of fiduciary duty. He carefully listened to all my concerns, kept me informed and got me a great result without having to go to trial.
