“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 also is knowledgeable in preparing estate documents; criminal matters; civil matters; contracts and has appeared not only in city/County courts but in the Court of Appeal and Federal Courts as well. I am very thankful appreciative that Mr. Katz was referred to me and I will certainly be passing on his card to my family and friends. If you are seeking a no-nonsense and fair and ethics attorney you will not have to look any further than Mr. Katz.”JS
