Excellent attorney
Mr. Bronitsky is an excellent attorney. If you need to pursue legal action, he's definitely the guy you want on your side. But what I like about him the most, is he will tell you when NOT to pursue legal action because your case is not strong enough or not worth the cost. His honesty is not often seen in the legal profession. From the moment you hire him, he will be your advocate and your protector. I wouldn't trade him for anyone.

Worked through a Foreclosure with me; good counsel.
Charlie's broad experience and analytic mind worked together well for me. He coached me so well I never needed him to get deeply involved, but the one time he did he negotiated very well for me.

Instead of settling, I spent a lot of money and then settled. It shouldn't have happened that way.
I saw Mr. Bronisky about a real estate breach of contract case as a defendant. At the time, I knew very little about the law. I was sure the legal system would protect me from what I believed was a frivolous case. Further, Charlie told me I had the law on my side. After several months of motions, legal research, and bills, I felt sick to my stomach. Each argument we presented was defeated by the plaintiff, and I realized that the lawsuit did in fact have merit. When it came to ask Charlie whether I should settle, he said only I can make that decision. Yet, he seemed so convinced I would win just months earlier and the facts didn't seem any different. I feel that my lawyer misled me about the strength of my case. Had he told me the truth, I would have settled right away. Instead, I spent a lot of money to do the same thing in the end- settle.
