Abear Law Office provided outstanding and compassionate Family Law representation. Attorney Tony Abear's expertise and professionalism is unparalleled. As we discussed my case for the first time, I felt that Mr. Abear was genuinely interested and quickly realized what I was up against when dealing with my ex-spouse. During discussions regarding options, strategies, and potential outcomes, it soon became apparent that Tony Abear is professionally and personally a man of integrity, with true moral compass. He and his staff at Abear Law Offices treated me and my case with true concern, respect, and communication. In the courtroom, my case was handled with strong, competent, and confident legal expertise. I would absolutely recommend Abear Law to family, friends, or anyone searching for exceptional Family Law representation.

Tony listened and then asked non-leading questions. I felt he was genuinely engaged in me and my story. I appreciated his approach that was to; gather facts, explore options, and find the best possible outcome for me and not just generate billable hours. He followed up with me through a direct call that let me know he was vested in a long-term resolution to my situation without prejudging me or my spouse.

Mr. Abear and Joan Van Oss were terrific. I was in a battle of a divorce with my now x spouse who was not complying for 3 years. I had two other lawyers prior to Mr. Abear and both were horrible. If I did not fire the other two I would have walked away with practically nothing. Mr. Abear fought hard for me, uncovered money and many other assets that were mine. He protected me where others had not only failed but didn't try. I was referred by another lawyer who is now retired, but respects Mr. Abear immensely and now so do I.

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Tony Abear as an attorney for over 15 years. He was a ruthless prosecutor when he worked as an assistant state's attorney and he is a one of the most well respected family law attorneys in the area. He is intelligent, honest, and aggressive.
