Awesome Lawyer! A+++++
Mr.Neal Bhartia handled my Bankruptcy case at Syndicate Legal, I couldn't be more happy and grateful that I had Mr. Bhartia as my attorney. Mr. Bhartia explained everything from A - Z with ease and he walked me to the process like it was my first day at kindergarten. If you are searching for an attorney, look no further Mr. Bhartia is your man, 1000 percent recommend Mr. Bhartia, and his super chill, really like talking to him too so that's a bonus.

Neil Bhartia Review
My wives and my case has almost finalized and now that we have gone through the months long process working with Mr. Neil Bhartia, I believe it's important that I share our experience with any future clients. From the beginning when I called Neil (and yes, he has no problem with you calling him Neil) so schedule a consultation, I immediately felt at ease. Unlike two other attorneys that I contacted prior to contacting Neil, he was attentive and patient with us. I had a million questions and Neil stayed on the phone with me for over half and hour and we were not his clients yet. I was immediately sold on Neil, but wanted to meet him in person before deciding to retain him as our attorney. It was the best decision we made. He has been to incredibly patient with me, I'm a naturally anxious person by nature and he never made me feel like I was annoying him when I asked for clarification or asked for him to repeat what he had explained. I mean talk about a true client focused attorney. Neil was encouraging every step of the way, dealing with anything legal was extremely stressful for me, but no matter how many times I called or emailed him, he always called me back and never rushed me off the phone. He never asked for additional fees for his time, he is honest and will not scam you. I was further impressed when he provided us help with completing paperwork that was not part of our case. He once again answered my questions and went over the documents line by line, and all of this with our case being done. A truly amazing person and attorney, I can't express how grateful we are to have worked with Neil, we felt supported during one of the most stressful experiences of our lives. We feel lucky to have worked with Neil as our attorney.

Outstanding
Neil Bhartia was awesome. A lot of times you talk to lawyers and you're always wondering how much you can trust them. Not with Niel. He gives it to you straightforward and I never felt I was trying to be upsold into services I didn't need. He was very knowledgeable and helped me settle my case with expedience. Highly recommended!!!

Excellent Experience
My family and I could not be more pleased with the services we received from Mr. Bhartia and his associates. He was very up front about what was required from us and what to expect, needless to say he came through for us in a bit way. He really made us feel comfortable and we knew he had our best interests in mind.

Neil spent an hour with us on the phone last weekend (note: on the weekend). Way above and beyond the call of duty. Everything he said and explained was clear and comprehensive. He picked up on what we wanted immediately and understood the case thoroughly. Highly recommend; you will be happy.

A true legal professional with intelligence, honesty & integrity.
I called Neal for a consultation and eventhough his expertise was more in the area of the plaintiff side he took the time and went out of his way to explain things to me and guide me as best he could and helped me to find a referral. He is a very caring individual, honest and practical. I would certainly refer him to any of my friends and absolutely keeping him in my Rolodex in case for the future! Great lawyer and you can’t go wrong with Neil.

Extraordinary, kind and quality service!
I can't express enough gratitude for Neil and his service. It's never easy dealing with legal issues, but I felt cared for from the very first phone conversation. The process took months and even so, Neil never hesitated to answer my questions, spent extra time explaining the process and made this experience one that I cannot say enough good things about. Not only is he a knowledgeable and kind professional, he is an all around great human! Thank you for your service!!

Very, very happy with my first lawyer experience!
I was nervous about having to deal with a lawyer. So many negative things about lawyers on TV etc...but my opinion may be changing at least after meeting Mr. Bhartia. I couldn't sleep for long enough that I finally had to call someone and after looking at the reviews, I took my chances and called Mr. Bhartia. Guy is awesome. I didn't even feel like I was talking with some stuffy attorney. He's the coolest guy ever and sharp as a tack. He handled my matter without any issues and I'm sleeping better again :) Now my whole family goes to him for help!

Great good looking lawyer!!
Wow. I decided to go to Mr Bhartia and his firm after reading his reviews on Yelp and Google. I had two cases and was dissatisfied with my previous lawyer who was not able to get my case resolved since the other driver was fighting it. Mr Bhartia took both of my cases, turned them around and got settlements that far exceeded my hopes! If you want to get paid, call these guys and don't give it a second thought.

Look no further...
It has been a positive experience working with Mr. Bhartia. He always returned my calls or emails whenever I had a question or concern, even when I had to talk to him during his days off. It is so nice to be able to express your concerns to an attorney and have things explained to you without being rushed or bombarded with terms you don’t understand. I will definitely refer Mr. Bhartia to friends and family!

The best!
The BEST lawyer around. Period. When I had to hire a lawyer I was very nervous and unsure of what to do. Attorney Bhartia was recommended to me by a close friend who went with me to my first meeting with him. I think part of my fear was not only about my case, but having to interact with an attorney. Neil is not like any attorney I have ever known. He is a very unique individual who made me feel very comfortable and at ease with my situation. He is very patient, easy to talk to, and his positive energy made me know that everything was going to be okay. After we met I felt a big weight fall off of my shoulders. He always returned my calls and took great care of me. My case went great and was finished much faster than I thought! I couldn't be happier with the service he provided. He's definitely my lawyer for life.
