Client Testimonials

Greg Masler is a man I am glad I had in my corner during a recent legal battle. I stood to lose thousands of dollars. Greg stood toe to toe with the enemy, never backing down and always keeping my best interest in mind. He is truthful, trustworthy, hard working and someone I would not hesitate to call on again if the need arises.

While handling my case, he was attentive and responded promptly to my phone calls or emails. He was very resourceful. Utilizing his knowledge of previous legal decisions that might be of benefit or detriment to my case. He gave careful consideration to the merits of my arguments and of the opponent’s possible rebuttals before deciding to take my case.

I recommend Greg Masler to friends and family, or anyone who finds themselves in need of an attorney.

Carolyn Jones

It’s a very difficult time in one’s life when one experiences the depth of financial difficulties as Debbi and I had. In a blink of an eye we came close to loosing everything we built over the years.

Your professional services were like a breath of fresh air for us especially after months on end of sleepless nights and that never ending gnawing lump of anxiety we lived with every minute of the day.

You helped take the burden of fear out of filing. I think the main reason why the financial vacuum gets so deep and so quickly out of hand is because of that fear.

Phil and Debbi

As an attorney practicing family law for over twenty-eight years, I am very familiar with integrity, professionalism, and competence in the legal field. Having known Greg Masler for over nine years, I know him to be a competent attorney of integrity and skill, and I would recommend him to any person looking for legal representation in Greg’s areas of practice.

Robert Pederzani

I used Greg Masler to help me properly open my new company. Greg was very thorough in asking questions upfront to make sure the formation of my company was done correctly the first time. He was in touch throughout the process and completed everything earlier than promised. His staff was also very helpful in filling out the required documentation. I highly recommend Greg Masler and his team.
