Great Lawyer
I had a workmans comp claim and he handeled it great. They were screwing with my money and pay. he wasn`t afraid to go to court , took a while to get to court but when it did he won. The wheels of justice move slow I know that , but he did a great job for me...

Attorney Howard Ankin was instrumental in bringing me a quick and successful resolution to my claim. He was knowledgeable, professional, and trustworthy. I hope I never need him again, but I would not hesitate to use him. I highly recommend him.
