During the 30 years I have known John Ambrecht he has attended to my personal and family legal needs,ranging from ensuring that I had a will,to educating me in the importance of a family trust.He has always been available to advise in matters of domestic and international tax law, enabling me to feel secure in his knowledge of the law and in his genuine concern for my wife and myself.John is unusual in his
practice of what I would describe as holistic law,in his awareness of the
emotional needs of his clients which often drive legal issues,making him
unique in my experience with lawyers. I feel fortunate to have him as
my lawyer and friend and I recommend him without reservation.

I have seen this attorney's work in a number of cases and he is not only very knowledgeable but deeply committed to doing the best he can for his clients regardless of the difficulty of their situation and at the most reasonable cost. He faces some very difficult situations because he is willing to take on the emotional issues that many of his clients are wrestling with that other attorneys may not even recognize as areas they can offer facilitation. His trustworthiness responsiveness and knowledgeability are excellent and he has kept his clients very well informed. It is amazing how many people see him as honest and accommodating even to a fault. He makes sure his staff follow his standards and if there are any problems not addressed he has made sure he personally addresses them. I would recommend him without reservation.
