  • “We are so blessed to have an attorney that is compassionate and humanistic – not the stereotypical ‘cut throat’ lawyer that is often portrayed in society.  You touched our hearts by coming over at any hour to meet with us and ease our mind …You are one of so many blessings God has sent to us.” – LT


  • "These folks know their stuff and were more like friends looking to help us out than lawyers. They were tremendously helpful and achieved a result that was much better than we could have expected. More than that, they were respectful of us and were very reassuring throughout the process. That is why we have used them again and have recommended them as well. Highly recommended." – CR


  • "I have been a client of your firm for more than a decade.  Your expertise in several business transactions involving the sale of my two dental practices and the sale of commercial real estate proved very valuable to me in the completion of these complex transactions.  Whenever I have needed your service and support you have always been available.  As these transactions developed through the years, your words of advice have served as a significant level of guidance for me.  Each individual with whom I have dealt with at your firm has been willing to go the extra mile to either meet with me or provide telephone support, even during hours when the office was closed.  In addition I have sensed that your staff genuinely cares that your clients have been expertly advised on all angles involving a transaction.  From the most complex issue to the mere mundane, I always felt that you worked diligently to protect my interests.  The sound advise and inspired ideas that you presented based on your years of experience have truly demonstrated your superior level of expertise, and, to me, more empirically a firm sense of moral direction and doing the right thing for all concerned."  – HM

If Jon Azrael had been less than the attorney that he is it is hard to say how the [the case]would have turned out. And to [your paralegal] Phyllis Arnold I owe an unending debt of gratitude and friendship not only for the work she put in but for being a true friend to my sister who at the time was in real need of a true friend." – MT


  • Mr. Lipowitz’s professionalism and compassion were quite reassuring and comforting throughout the five years that it took to reach a settlement.  In particular, he prepared us very well for the depositions and in our opinion he handled the negotiation flawlessly.  Because of his efforts our experience with your firm was a highly satisfactory and rewarding one, and should we for any reason require legal assistance in the future you can be sure that we will call on you again.” – MP

  • "After having discussions with peer pharmacy owners, the name of the Azrael Franz law firm came to my attention.  Partner Jud Lipowitz engaged me several times over the years outlining the firm's capabilities and links to the pharmacy community, preparing me for the process of selling my business.  When the time came for the possible sale of my community pharmacy, we engaged Azrael Franz as our legal representatives.  Partner Jon Azrael was our lead attorney backed up by Jud Lipowitz over the months it took to come to a final contract. The complexities along the way included issues with our landlord and assignment of the lease which were important factors to the national chain acquirer who intended to 'buy and operate' in place.  All along the way we were sagely advised and represented.  It is with complete confidence that I recommend the Azrael Franz law firm."  – LM
