  • James L Strichartz

    Zak and I have worked together on numerous legal disputes involving condominium associations with great results. These matters often involve complex issues including association governance, construction defect and insurance coverage issues. Zak is a great litigator. Zak's exemplary performance demonstrates a quick and thorough grasp of the issues, the ability to work with volunteer boards and emotionally stressed homeowners, and great results achieved through the negotiation and litigation processes. As a partner at Stanislaw Ashbaugh, Zak is a member of one of the most effective legal teams working in the construction defect and insurance coverage fieldJim has always proved a vital member of our litigation/dispute team and his work is consistently top notch. I would recommend Zak to any of my clients.
