Excellent services and the best attorney
Before selecting Chris, I had read the reviews. I have to say I'm glad I used this firm in my auto case. They were helpful in selecting a chiropractor close to my area and I did not have to drive out to their office. Our communication was based on Email and by phone. It worked great with my busy schedule as a student and employee. if I ever need an attorney for auto accident, I would definitely return. I was amazed at the settlement I received after paying out my fees. Thank you Chris and staff for your hard work and dedication to your clients like myself.

Excellent attorney!
I was injured in a car accident last year and was in need of a personal injury attorney. Chris Zachar and his staff were professional and excellent to work with! They were always there to answer my questions and they made me feel like family. I highly recommend Zachar Law Firm!

A Real injury lawyer with compassion and expertise!
I was injured in an auto accident earlier this year. I was not at fault and suffered a couple of broken bones and a punctured lung. Needless to say, I was in pain and I needed a lawyer. I searched for a few days for the right personal injury attorney in Arizona and found Zachar Law Firm. I read a little about Mr. Zachar and realized that he was the Attorney I needed. The reviews and testimonials were spot on. I met with Mr. Zachar in person and thought I would meet with an assistant or someone else. It turns out I met directly with Mr. Zachar. Not only did he express his compassion for fighting for me, but he also showed his expertise. Needless to say I was impressed. Thank you Mr. Zachar for everything you did for me. Your staff was fantastic and I didn't feel like I was a client. I felt like a friend!

TRULY A CREDIT TO HIS PROFESSION!
My daughter died Thanksgiving Day,2012, in a roll over accident in Apache Junction. After 2 months of fighting with insurance companies, I found the need for an attorney. Christopher and his staff were highly knowledgeable, great to deal with, and truly cared about me and my family! Honestly, I would refer him to guard the crown jewels, he is that trustworthy. Even though some of our requests were outside the normal, he agreed and abided by our requests. Thank you Chris, for all you have done!

Quality, Honest Lawyer
I've known Chris Zachar - family and firm - since he was first out of law school. He always responds to my calls, inquiries and requests in a timely, professional manner. Highly recommended in his field - and - if not his field of expertise, he promptly refers me to others who are qualifed in the legal arena for which I seek advice.

Zachar Review
Chris Zachar is one of, if not the most, hardest working individuals I have had the pleasure to meet. He is extremely thorough and does nothing halfheartedly. He gives the same effort in every case no mater the size or complexity. I appreciated his honesty and caring attitude throughout my case and I was pleased with the outcome due to his negotiating skills.

Honesty and Dedication PLUS !!
I have known Christopher Zachar for many years. He is honest and dedicated to his profession as any good attorney should be. I have had several personal injury cases and Chris has done the very best for me. I would trust him to handle any legal problem I might have in the future. He is extremely knowledgeable in the Personal Injury and Wrongful Death field, but he also takes the time to research other legal specialty fields, too, if required. He is not only dedicated to his profession, but also to his family and friends. Christopher Zachar is energetic, honest, dedicated, trustworthy and has all the attributes that makes him not only a excellent attorney. but also a person anyone would like to have as a friend.

Excellent work always there
Two teenage girls attacked me at work during an attempted armed robbery. One of them beat me in the head several times with a steel pipe and then stabbed me four times. All I had was worker’s compensation, so I decided to see a lawyer. Before I called Chris, I talked with eight or nine lawyers who refused to take my case. Chris took my case. We got $165,000 from one insurance company and we’re still going after the other girl’s parents. Chris pursued my case when no one else would. I would certainly refer injured victims to Chris.

A lawyer with Superb Expertise
Mr. Zachar of Zachar Law Firm in North Phoenix is one of the few lawyers that takes his practice with compassion with expertise. He goes above and beyond what it means to help someone and he always has given the best outcome scenarios for myself when I was involved in a very serious accident that left my vehicle totaled. Thank you Zachar Law Firm for making me feel relaxed in a time of crisis.

I wouldn’t recommend Zachar Law Firm
Very disappointed of the outcome of my case. He collected his six figure check and after that (in my opinion) he didn’t try to reduce my liens that were in the six figures, wasn’t sympathetic and if they were it was fake. He reduced his fee but then charged other fees that almost were half of what he “reduced fees”. He stated he wouldn’t take more then me. That’s not true, he walked away with more then I did. The ZLF team will be all nice until they collect the check then leave you on the side of the road like an abounded orphan kid. This is all my opinion and how they made me feel after the case was over. I wish I would have looked at the other reviews before using this firm. They can control the reviews on majority of their Social Media platforms. He also stated “lawyers out in Arizona can do whatever they want as they aren’t monitored. It’s like the Wild West” as he stated on a phone call. Keep your options open for a personal injury attorney.

Deplorable
Deplorable law firm. Typical, arrogant attorneys that only care about their own reputation instead of doing the right thing. I retained them to file a lawsuit against Mountain Vista medical center for leaving my mother's dead body at room temperature in the ER for over 24 hours so she bloated and we couldn't have a viewing before cremation. Christopher Zachar was very enthusiastic about taking my case but after he spoke with the mortuary owner who was witness to what happened, he decided not to proceed further because of something the mortuary did years prior that had nothing to do with my mother's case. He was worried that his reputation would be tarnished for "having her as his star witness". I was a legal assistant for 20 years and got to work with a lot of self centered attorneys just like Christopher so I honestly wasn't surprised. There are plenty of personal injury and wrongful death attorneys out there. I would suggest not retaining anyone from the Zachar law firm
