If you’re looking for an attorney who is professional and compassionate to your situation Mr. Charles J. Katz is who you should call. Mr. Katz was there from the beginning and he worked continuously on my claims while keeping me abreast of what was going on through phone calls and in-person meetings. 
I’m so grateful for Mr. Katz’s expertise because the goal was set and now it’s complete.


“I wanted to share this experience with regard to a time in our lives that is not only emotional but overwhelming.   I was in search for- an attorney to handle my mother’s probate.  This in and of itself is not easy.  However, I was referred to Charles Katz and I decided to consult with him.   I am very grateful that I did.  Mr. Katz made me feel completely comfortable,  knew exactly what to ask, what documents I would need to provide, and most of all not to worry because he would take care of everything and that all I had to do was concentrate on getting myself better emotionally.  This was a tremendous weight off my shoulders.   We are still in the middle of the process, but again Mr. Katz has handled everything.   His expertise in knowledge of the law is impressive.   I never realized that although he is handling our probate, he is also knowledgeable in preparing estate documents, criminal matters, civil matters, and contracts that appeared not only in city/County courts but in the Court of Appeal and Federal Courts.   I am very thankful and appreciative that Mr. Katz was referred to me and I will certainly pass on his card to my family and friends.  If you are seeking a no-nonsense and fair and ethical attorney you will not have to look any further than Mr. Katz.”


“Charles is a good Samaritan and a great attorney. He is compassionate, earnest, and very knowledgeable. His patient style of communication is unpretentious and direct to the point – he tells it the way it is. He has a soft spot for the elderly and, boy, is he a staunch defender for the abused? I am grateful for the work he has done. He came highly recommended and I am passing him forward as such.”
Ned A.

“Just to be clear, Mr. Katz has been one of the kindest & most compassionate attorneys that I have had the pleasure of dealing with
in many years now. He & his team worked with me through a very difficult estate settlement, that could have literally taken a few years to finalize, if it hadn’t been for his steady perseverance & professionalism, which ultimately brought the matter to a satisfactory conclusion within a few months. I cannot tell you how diligent & conscientious they were in listening to my story & addressing all of the many details efficiently & productively.
I can only say, that if you have a legal pressing matter that falls within Mr. Katzs’ scope of practice, do yourself a favor & make an appointment with his office. It may very well be the best turning point of your life!”
