This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Trustworthy attorneys something hard to find- It was a good experience.
I liked the ease and speed of service that I received from The Mlnarik Law Group firm. I was fortunate to have been able to deal with Attorneys John and Nina and to observe them provide much needed guidance when I needed. I was always made aware of the status of my case. In my first meeting with Attorney John Mlnarik I can say that there was no pressure and Mr. Mlnarik took the time to answer all of my questions. The price for their services is not cheap but I would consider average market and very reasonable for the results I achieved by hiring this Law firm. It was a good experience with them and I would definitely recommend the Mlnarik law group for trust and estate planning and litigation especially if your case is complicated.

Excellent service
I highly recommend the Mlnarik firm. His staff was respectful and extraordinarily helpful. Every question/concern was addressed within reasonable time. I want to especially thank Angie Tong, Esq., for taking the time to explain in great detail the progress of bankruptcy.

Review of Mlnarik Firm for my Bankruptcy
It's hard to express my gratitude to the Mlnarik staff for my new start in life. From the first consultation to the discharge of my debt, the attorneys and staff were extraordinarily helpful with information and advice, and I deeply appreciate the respect with which I was treated. Their fees were reasonable. The lines of communication were always open and any question I had was answered almost immediately. I give the Mlnarik firm the highest possible recommendation.
