Excellent Assistance with my case; I will highly recommend him in the future.
Mr. Novak was presented with a difficult case re: A former employer of mine...he retained the services of Mitchell A. Kline as co-counsel, and together the two of them achieved a better judgement than I'd believed possible.

Great and knowlegeable lawyer that will give his all to help your case.
My experience with Garry Novak was positive. He handled a Formal Hearing with the Secretary of State petitioning for driving relief. With my past driving history and number of DUI’s I thought my case was difficult and may take a few attempts to receive relief. Garry Novak was able to have driving relief issued to me on our first attempt at a Secretary of State Formal Hearing. I would recommend his services to anyone petitioning for driving relief. Garry Novak kept informed through communicating with me frequently about my case. He was very knowledgeable and informative about DUI law and probably outcomes with my history. He was empathetic with my situation were as when dealing with other lawyers I did not feel the same. His services are recommended based on his knowledge along with rapport with his clients.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Garry and I have been sharing an office suite for the past five years. During that time, we have discussed a myriad of issues in the area of domestic relations, such as, divorce, legal separation, child support, child custody, and division of marital property. I have found him to be very knowledgeable in these areas of law, but he is diligent in researching any novel issues that may arise from time to time."
