Respectful, Professional, Communicative
HMA Law represented me in a long drawn out divorce. HMA came in after my initial attorney quit. Harry took the case and continued on with little repetition. All of my inquiry's were answered quickly and thoroughly. I never felt like I was being talked down to. I was kept informed of every step and my options were presented in a manner that allowed me to make the best choice for me. Dealing with a life changing event is never easy. HMA Law did an excellent job in making sure that the process was as simple and stress-free as possible.

Family Law Lawyer
When I was served with Divorce papers, I was in a state of shock and needed to find a Great Lawyer quickly. I was referred to several lawyers in my area from my Employers provided legal service. After speaking to several Attorneys, I called HMA Law Group and spoke to Attorney Harry Mirchandaney. I immediately felt reassured. Mr. Mirchandaney explained the process, and was straightforward with telling me what to expect. He listened to my concerns and was candid in telling me if what I was asking for was reasonable. I normally don’t write reviews but after three years of working with Attorney Harry Mirchandaney I felt it was the least I could do. If you need to find a Good Lawyer, I would definitely recommend Attorney Harry Mirchandaney, with HMA Law Group.

Completely Satisfied
Harry at the HMA law Group represented me in a 24-month long divorce case involving real estate property and personal retirement funds. From beginning to end, Harry was able to successfully represent me throughout the complete process. Through his excellent work, knowledge and preparation, he was able to win my case and get the property and retirement funds awarded to me. I appreciate all the work he put into my case along this long and at times frustrating ordeal. I found Harry to be a of very high ethics, very knowledgeable and an excellent attorney. I am completely satisfied with all his service, and would not hesitate to recommend him, or call on him in the future if I am ever in need of legal services.

Honest and on top of everything
Harry represented me in a 20 month divorce that involved property, custody, and a not so cooperative spouse. Through all the paperwork and all of my questions, Harry never missed a beat. He was always there to explain things to me so that I felt prepared and sure of what I was facing. He never sugar coated anything and I appreciated that. He never ignored me and always gave me the time and consideration I needed to navigate this scary situation. After this difficult ordeal, I have a lot of appreciation for what he did for me. He focused on my priorities and acted with the best interest of my family in mind. I would call him knowledgeable, competent, considerate, and a genuinely decent human being. I would recommend him to anyone and will certainly be back with any other legal matters and needs that may arise.

Estate Planning
I hired Harry a few years ago to create a trust for my Dad. Harry did such a great job of guiding me that I found myself in a similar situation once again this year. Harry spent a considerable amount of time with me for a consultation. He answered all my questions and again helped me with the next steps. When it comes to Attorney's, you need one you can trust, one that is assessable, knowledgeable and relatable. Harry is on the top of my list.

Best and Trusted Attorney
I hired Harry when I was at my wits end trying to get a Trust established for my terminal Father. Harry put me at ease and worked on the documents I needed, guided me through the process and made a difficult time tolerable. Two years later, I am the Trustee for a dear friend. I again asked for Harry's help and advice. He spent considerable time with me and gave me great advice and solutions. When someone asks me about a Trust Attorney, Harry is the first and only person that comes to mind. He is genuine, caring, intelligent and trustworthy. In the near future, I will be turning to Harry once again to draft a Trust for me. He is superior to any Attorney I've ever worked with!

Excellent Lawyer! Highly recommended!
Attorney Harry Mirchandaney represented me in a unique divorce case. He is a very smart and compassionate family attorney who displayed immense knowledge. He was always available on the phone/email and responded to my queries promptly. Above all, he is a professional attorney who genuinely cares for his clients. Through his knowledgeable and excellent assistance he reviewed my case against my ex-husband, who has lied and used my children as pawns. My ex-husband made false allegations including: 4 Child Protective Service reports (all unfounded), 2 police reports "sent to District attorney", and went through the 730 evaluation. My ex-husband is trying to take full custody of my children to avoid payment of $49,000 in child support. Mr. Mirchandaney recommended that I hire a criminal lawyer, which has costed me more money and less time with my children because I need to work over-time to keep up with the fees, and because my ex-husband has not paid his child support payments in full. My ex-husband was extremely spiteful, a liar, and has made my quality of life difficult during this process. He has displayed malevolent qualities by having opposing counsels employ unethical tactics to try to make me submit, including prolonging the case further and further. Mr. Mirchandaney’s professional nature dealt with the situation and communicated with my criminal lawyer to make sure all parties understood the situation. Mr. Mirchandaney has done his job well, surpassing all expectations with excellence and even emailed me at 3 am to update me with case details and status, showing his utmost devotion. During this prolonged struggle, Mr. Mirchandaney has taken a stance with me through the nonsense and lies that my ex-husband and opposing counsel concocted and obstructed in this case. Furthermore, Mr. Mirchandaney represented me with extreme knowledge, respect, and care through this strenuous and problematic process because he is ethical, determined, and just. I highly recommend Harry Mirchandaney for anyone who is going through custody disputes and family law issues

Maticulous in Every Way
First, Mr. Mirchandaney walked me through the entire divorce process. Next, together, we completed all the necessary forms, educating me. Then, he timely filed the necessary forms with the courts, keeping me informed. Lastly, the end result was nothing less than a maticulous divorce. If I had to do it again, I will call him. Thank you, Harry.
