This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Knowledgeable and caring
I highly recommend Lee Zavatsky as a child support attorney. I consulted with him and he provided me with an analysis of my situation and the options open to me. He is extremely knowledgeable and detailed. He was honest in that my case does not warrant hiring an attorney at this point, but might in the future. If I need further legal services, I will definitely be contacting Lee Zavatsky.

Good attorney. Thank you so much Mr. Zavatsky for your kind help and support!!

Professional & Exceptional Client Service
Lee was very professional in handling my case. He was prompt in getting back to me and kept me apprised of my case throughout the entire process. He worked thoroughly and diligently to provide me a favorable result. I can't thank him enough for working my case!!!
Posted by Will | February 4, 2014
Excellent Service
A change of address ticket on my license resulted in me receiving a $930 fine from a creditor for failure to appear in court. I contacted Lee and he discovered that there was also a hold on my license due to the issue. The following day he went to the Beverly Hills courthouse, got the hold on my license lifted and had the entire case dismissed. I literally had to do nothing. He was super responsive, calling me several times over the short 24 hour time span we really worked together. I would definitely recommend Lee to anyone seeking legal counsel.

Can't Go Wrong with Mr. Zavatsky
I have never hired a lawyer before, but I'm pretty sure that Mr. Zavatsky is as good as they get. I was charged with Commercial Burglary (Felony) and with the help of Mr. Zavatsky, I was only given an infraction. Mr. Zavatsky went above and beyond for my case and for that I thank him. I truly recommend Mr. Zavatsky to anyone who is looking for a great lawyer to take on their case.

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Zavatsky handled my case with the utmost professionalism. He was very informant and helpful at all times. I felt completely comfortable letting him handle my case, and for the most part I never had any worries regarding the outcome of the case because I knew I was in good hands. Mr. Zavatsky was able to get my DUI case reduced to a "Dry Reckless", which is a significant lesser crime and removes the involvement of alcohol. From the surface it seemed as if Mr. Zavatsky handled my case with ease, although there is no question in my mind that he worked really hard. Thanks again, Lee!
