Excellent Attorney
Mr. Sitzer help, enabling me to resolve my case, was invaluable. He is extremely knowledgeable and conscientious. I would not hesitate to recommend him to family and friends.

Honest Lawyer
An honest guy in a thoroughly crooked profession. Seems to be at least as interested in social justice as making a living. In any case, he’s definitely more concerned with clients than advertising his business, unlike most OC defense lawyers. But don’t let the humility fool you. He may not promise miracles, but that’s because he doesn’t make it a habit of breaking the promises that he does make. With other lawyers, it’s the promises that you’re paying extra for. With Andrew, you’re paying for is honest legal advice.

Outstanding services!
Andrew and his staff went the extra mile throughout every step of my case. They were professional and efficient when collecting doctor's records, answering my endless questions, and kept me informed with every development. At no point did I question my choice with Andrew Sitzer's legal firm. He was able to negotiate a very high settlement that covered my medical expenses and fairly compensated for my damages. The Personal attention I received ie: after hours calls, prompt response to every email, thoughtful legal guidance, make Andrew Sitzer an easy choice to handle any future legal issue. I highly recommend him and his firm without any reservation whatsoever. Excellent Experience!

Andew D Sitzer is the best lawfirm and group of lawyers in Orange County by example
Andrew D. Sitzer Law office is genuinely the best I had the privilege to work with. His humble and honest services helped me settle a very difficult accident case which no other firm accepted because it worth $500.00 (If very lucky, I would get five hundred dollars only - an offer which was even pulled back to $0 Zero). Andrew, Thomas, and his team did not just sit in an office working on my case, they did all the leg work which no other firm in Orange County would have done; going above and beyond to serve the public because they care about you and not the money by example - he could have got more for himself and team but instead gave away a share he deserves. I never met any lawyer who works harder than what he deserves, a good man who is changing the negative image of lawyers to a more positive and salubrious experience. My case was handled professionally, honestly, and with kindness at all times. I never seen a lawyer being liked and respected as much by opponents' case lawyers specially during difficult arguments and throughout case settlement; he's so down to earth, very knowledgeable, delivers as promised + more, and most honest which made me very comfortable trusting him without a doubt at all times. I recommend Andrew D. Sitzer Law office to anyone who's in need for a genuine and honest attorney to trust from the beginning of your case with excellent results. Andrew and Thomas are genuinely a wonderful and caring human beings I had the pleasure knowing. I'm forever thankful to Andrew, Thomas, and his team leaving me with a nice vivid memory of all the good things him and his firm did in support of my case -Thank you again kindly for shedding back light on my life.

Responsive, Professional/Attentive!
Andrew helped us with a car accident in which our car was totaled. He got us the medical care we needed and settled for the maximum amount allowed under insurance. He is attentive, caring, responsive, and smart! I happily refer my friends and family to Andrew.

Auto accident
Andy meet with me at the intersection where the incident occurred within 15 of contacting him. He walked me through everything. My health care provider was dragging their feet getting back to me. Andy arranged for me to be seen within 48hrs. Of making a phone call. After all was said and done he went the extra mile. He notified me that I had further leagal rights and pursued those aswell. At no cost. On his time. I highly recommended him. Follow his advice and you wont be disappointed.

I found his nave via ARAG and I am going to cry writing this review and even though he said he doesn't do my kind of case , he gave me a very detailed advice on what might happen and what to do and what to expect with compassion.

Patient, Sympathetic, Honest
Andrew Sitzer is amazing. He handled my personal injury case after a car accident and won the case for me. In the interim he was able to provide me with excellent care from a team of high class doctors. It was a long process and many months of back and forth. But when I would call in tears or upset about the status of the case, Andrew Sitzer was always willing to listen to me and explain exactly what was going on and reassure me that everything was going to work out in time. He understands and can handle the tough situations with integrity and respectfulness. Thank you Andrew!

Simple Ticket-but great attention to detail and communication
While a simple Speeding ticket, Andrew made me feel this was an important case to him and kept me appropriately updated at each step in the process. The icing on the cake was a great result, but the clear communication about what to expect at each step was truly refreshing and indicated a high degree of interest in good customer satisfaction. Thank you Andrew.

I defintiely recommend Andrew Sitzer.
I contacted Andrew for help with a ticket I had received in Marin. I was referred to him by a friend who is an attorney in Orange County. Andrew was very helpful. He answered all of my questions and addressed any concerns I had. He even stayed on the phone with me while we contacted the DMV which, as you may expect, is a very long phone call. I was certainly impressed with Andrew's attention to my case. I hope I will not need a lawyer again, but if I do, I'm confident in Mr. Sitzer's experience and professionalism, and will not hesitate to contact him again. If you are looking for an attorney, Andrew Sitzer is a solid choice.

Andrew saved me big time.
I got arrested for DUI hit and run and possesion. I was facing 2 felony charges.. I was facing quiet a bit of time and it was all wiped away... as long as i dont get arrested within 18 months. Some DUI classes and Drug classes and that was it. I couldnt be happier.

I am indebted to this man.
After having a terrible experience experience with a lawyer who happens to have a "5 star" rating on this website, I consider it a crime Mr. Sitzer doesn't have a "5 star" rating himself. It should be a crime anyway. He gave me a deal by deal break down in how good my case was and what to expect about taking things to trial. He was incredibly timely and undoubtedly knowledgeable to his responses to my questions. I made a mistake and I paid a price for that mistake. I drove with a BAC of .08. I walked out of that experience learning a lesson or two and I took my licks instead of going to trial because I just couldn't deal with going to trial with my current economic situation. However, undoubtedly without him, I would have been lost and would have dealt with jail time and even heftier fines including community service hours over this mistake. I still feel I owe the guy a lot more than the fees I paid him.

Result was better then expected :)
Andrew from the get go had me more information then I expected. I met with other lawyers who tried to sell me but did not seem to have the best intentions. He argued his way to a reckless driving, it was awesome watching him work From the my stand point. Andrew was best choice I made for my DUI case.. I highly recommend

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ANDREW
Andrew was able to reduce my DUI and hit and run to simply a wet reckless. He worked tirelessly on motions and fought hard for me in court, which eventually resulted in no driver's license suspensions. This was important for me because I was going to school while completing an internship many miles away from home. Also, Andrew is a compassionate attorney who will fight hard for you while keeping you informed during the entire process. He was never out of reach, responding to any questions I had very quickly. I highly recommend Andrew.
