Even being halfway across the country, they represented me brilliantly. Everyone I spoke to was kind curtious and the secretary was delightful and forwarded all my messages. THANK YOU FOR THE BEST REPRESENTATION I COULD EVER ASK FOR!!!
Christian and his team exceeded my expectations in negotiating and settling my husbands estate. They took charge right away and filed all the necessary documentation to the probate court for my stepson and me. Attorney Sarantopoulos did an outstanding job in negotiating with my husbands creditors to reduce the amount owed to a manageable amount. They were sensitive to my emotional state after loosing my husband and helped me through the probate process at a very reasonable cost. I would recommend them to anyone in need of legal assistance.
Attorney Sarantopoulos represented me recently, and I couldn't be more pleased with him as well as his staff. Very friendly and courteous, fair and dedicated to each and every client. I highly recommend Sarantopoulos and Sarantopoulos.
As soon as I called it was able to talk to a lawyer and get advice. Also they set me up with an appointment right away.
The BEST attorney around!
Believe it or not, Christian cares more about his clients than his payday. He is very thorough and explains every step of the way. His staff treats you like family. Christian went above and beyond. He even recommended financial advisors when I got back more than I thought I would. I couldn't be any more pleased with his service. I just want to say thank you to the entire staff at Sarantopoulos & Sarantopoulos!
My husband and I recently contacted Sarantopoulos and Sarantopoulos for an injury claim. The entire office was very professional, friendly and mostly very patient with our questions. Anytime we called and they told us they would get back to us, they did so; which is very hard to find these days. I'm glad to say that our claim was settled in a timely manner. Many Thanks to Christian and his team and I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a GREAT Atty.
Sarantopoulos and Sarantopoulos provided exceptional counsel with great attention to detail. They kept me informed every step of the way and never backed down in the fight!
Absolutely the Best Attorneys-Knowledgeable and always there for YOU
Without Sarantopoulas & Sarantopoulas LLC my property would still be sitting there in Connecticut. There services and attention given by Kim Kovisto was amazing, attentive and always available to me. Their patience with complicated matters is fantastic; continual research and pursuit. I live in Palm Springs, CA and though we have many attorneys, there are some who would have to climb a few mountains to keep up with the Sarantopoulas firm and Kim. I was well served and they were highly recommended to me by Patricia Malboeuf of Partners Real Estate. Cannot say enough about their ability watching out for a client 3000 miles away. Truly # l and more than a # 5. Contact them before you make a legal counsel decision. they are the best. Mary (aka/) E. Robertson, Palm Springs, CA
