“I must say, I wasn’t a believer until I met with these guys! I lost hope but Shire Patel, Esq. helped me with my case and made sure everything was a total success! If you need any legal advice, please ask for Shire Patel. He is kind and very professional. I’m so glad I went with Anidjar & Levine.”- Nathacha P.
Back in February of this year me and my boyfriend at the time got hit by a bus. My car was totaled and the entire process was a huge hassle until my father put me in contact with the firm. After that it was pretty much smooth sailing. Most of the stress was taken off of my shoulders and they really helped me focus on getting myself better while they took care of everything else. I was updated constantly and all of my questions and concerns were addressed almost immediately. The lawsuit is finally being wrapped up and I have to say im extremely happy that Shire Patel was the person put on my case. He would personally call me just to update me on everything and make sure that everything was alright on my end. Shire was always polite and friendly. I couldn’t have asked for a more pleasant experience. Altogether, If anything even remotely close to this situation ever happens again I will not hesitate to call Shire.- Tyler R.
