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.

My case was very special and hard for me, but Mr. Abear did an excellent job. He was always available and easy to contact. He is knowledgable, fair, understanding and very helpful. I received an excellent outcome for my case. I highly recommend him to others who need his expertise.

We used Tony for a recent guardianship hearing. As daunting as the experience can be he made it simple and stress free for us. He was either available right away ,for our many questions, or would always back very quickly if he was tied up.
The combination of his experience and knowledge was enhanced further by the fact that he truly cared about our situation. We never felt like case number xxxx to him.
We could not be more please with the way Tony and his office handled our situation.

Anthony Abear is a true professional. From the start he put me at ease and developed a sound legal strategy for my situation. He is a clear and concise thinker who always knew what to do next for me. His staff and office were very easy to work with and they ALWAYS returned my calls.
I would highly recommend Anthony Abear to people looking for a bright articulate person to help them with their situation.

I have known Tony since I retained the services of his firm, Abear Law, to help me with my divorce case in 2012. The case went on for about two years because of the complexities involved and it was Tony’s diligence in the case as well as his perseverance that led to a fair and equitable outcome. Tony played a critical role in guiding and representing me during this difficult situation.
I found Tony to be very competent, and he always provided sage advice – there were times when I was about to make an emotionally driven decision and it was Tony who always helped me logically think through various options and their implications, which resulted in a better outcome for me.
Tony is also conscientious and fair – he made every effort to manage costs, delegating the less complex aspects of the case to his junior colleague, who I found to also be very professional, hardworking and an excellent attorney. His paralegal team is also extremely professional; always very prompt in their replies and with following through on various tasks.
Overall, I would recommend Tony to anyone looking for knowledgeable, diligent and top notch lawyer with a solid team of support professionals.

I'm not one to leave feedback, but thought this was relevant for those searching for a divorce attorney. I found myself in the unfortunate predicament in the need to hire a divorce attorney. I interviewed a few attorneys prior who charged just to meet with you. Not the case with Mr. Abear - after several weeks I searched Avvo and luckly found Tony. From our first meeting he was excellent. Putting me at ease and making me feel like I found someone who actually cares. Very professional, easy to talk to and really listens.. I hired Tony on the spot and after being accosted by my now ex-wives attorney, the first thing he said is I got your back.. And he certainly did. Professional, caring, knowledgeable and makes you a top priority.. He is always accessible and fees were minimal compared to other attorneys I have met.. I recommend Mr. Abear for any legal needs. He will fight for you..

I have worked with few attorneys before as most of us did. This time I had a pretty difficult issue with my Sons custody, I really couldn't afford to take any chances as my decisions would impact my sons life and health. I will never forget the first appointment with Tony. The sense of dignity and integrity coupled with simple kindness was the first notable impression. This impression never changed throughout the entire case. The case wasn't simple and I am a father,, dads still have a much more difficult time in the system then moms.
One of the first items he mentioned was that he will only work with a client that is honest to him about Everything that is going on and will not accept anything less. My tips to any future clients of Tony: Always tell the truth, always prepare all that you are asked for and beyond (this is team work), work efficiently with the office, trust his advice,,, fully.
I believe someone else here used a term "Quiet warrior" that is so accurate. Before hiring Tony I was anxious about the case, there were many factors that made it difficult. As my case progressed, my anxiety was replaced with calm confidence in how all the aspects were being handled. While Tony is quite busy, he took a very personal approach to my case, knowing all the right facts and always having a clear strategy and plan of action.
When Tony is in court or simply walking through the halls, its hard to miss his presence. He seemed to have earned a tremendous amount of respect from other attorneys and judges which is quite evident. They seem to know that when he makes a statement it is simply true without any doubt.
The rest of the team in the office is also outstanding. I was pleased to always receive email copies or calls about updates in the case in very timely manner. Sally in the office was superb. She helped to handle my calls, appointments and all other aspects of the case perfectly.
Of course I am a happy client, my Son is safe, the case was resolved in his favor. I am proud to have been able to help him. My anxieties come back a bit at times when I think of what would have happened if Tony wasn't there to represent us.

Tony is an outstanding attorney. He helped me during a very difficult divorce. He kept me balanced and not only advised me during the legal process; but how to keep my sanity. Tony pointed me in the right direction and guided me with sound decisions. He's professional, smart, thorough and worked in the best interest of me and my children. i highly recommend Tony.

Tony is a peaceful warrior inside and outside of the courtroom for his clients. He delivers justice with grace and humility. I think most of us who need legal council have a preconceived judgment of most attorneys because most have earned that label through their actions. Tony is the exception to that rule.
It was easy to trust him and his experience because he is truly a man of integrity who goes the extra distance to bring justice and fairness to his clients.
I highly recommend Tony. He is professional, experienced and truly cares about people, and it shows in his actions!

Ever had an attorney that you could call at night, or on weekends, or even better, would come to your house or work to meet with you? Well over the years I have hired literally a dozen attorneys through work, and out of all those attorneys, none have ever done any of that. But Tony Abear is the brilliant exception. He consistently went out of his way to make sure I knew everything that was going on with my cases (a few over a few years), made himself available night and day, and was always prepared to the point that he was one step ahead of the opposing counsel!
I used Tony for my divorce and custody, my sons ticket, and have referred 4 other cases to him. In each instance Tony has done amazing work!!!
I would tell anyone looking for legal services to make Tony Abear's office their first, last, and only stop!
