“Anidjar and Levine, along with there amazing colleague Howard Myones are the best! My wife and I lost our home to a catastrophic fire just before Christmas last year and we were helpless. The insurance carrier refused to take our claim seriously until this outstanding law firm got involved. Mr. Myones worked our case tirelessly for nearly 8 months and we finally received a settlement that will help my wife and I get back in our home. We have a long way until we rebuild, but it would have never been possible without the firm of Anidjar and Levine and the incredible and dedicated work of Howard Myones. I strongly urge anyone seeking legal services to give this firm a call. You will not regret it.”- Jeffrey G.
In February of 2011, I got into a car accident, and contacted the law office of Anijar & Levine. I can honestly say these guys don’t mess around. The were very compassionate and made everything go as smoothly as possible. The person that handled my case was Ron Vinogard. I could not have asked for a better person to take my case. He was very responsive and did a great job of keeping me well-informed. Ron Vinogard & Glen Levine put the other defense lawyer in check multiple times during my deposition and trial.If you have to hire an attorney to represent you during a difficult time, I highly recommend Ron Vinogard from the law office of Anijar & Levine.- Baldo L.
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.
