Ethan handled my child custody case and the results were so much better than I expected. Being that I was a man in a child custody battle, I expected the worst, but Ethan delivered results that to this day allow me to be a happy full-time father. I would definitely recommend Ethan to the public, and have sent several friends & family that echo the same happy results.

My experience with the Lee Drizin Law Office and Ethan Kottler has been perfect. I always get a positive outcome and Ethan consistently returns calls. They make me feel my case is the only one they have and they have great relationships at the courthouse. When my cases were tried everyone knew my attorney and were glad to see him. It calmed my nerves and I felt strangely more comfortable about the whole situation knowing that the court respected my attorney. Simply, they just make it easier for me when legal issues arise and I always feel my family is safe. Over the years I have met the staff and everyone treats you professionally and courteously. Lee Drizin is a firm I would recommend to anyone!

Ethan Kottler has been my attorney for a number of cases. He has always come through for me. However, one case takes Ethan to the highest level of esteem in my book. During a very hard time with my mother, Ethan took time from his busy schedule to not only come to our home but also to bring an assistant to act as a Notary Public. You see my mother was not able to leave the house. Had it not been for Ethan, we would never been able to accomplish this particular task. He save us in a very difficult time and I’m forever grateful to him and his professionalism.  I HIGHLY recommend Ethan for your legal needs.
