Absolutely hands down an amazing TEAM! From the person who answers the phone to the Legal Secretaries and the Lawyers. We had such a difficult case that even the Jusge mentioned he doesn’t do Writ of Posession that often. I was impressed with the extensive knowledge and professionalism that Mr. Wagner and Mrs. Melich have as well as their staff. Very efficient and responsiveness was nothing more than excellent. Most importantly, they won the case and we couldn’t be more humbled to have this resolved as this was my Grandparents home.

– Erika J.

My finance’ and I hired Daniel to handle the closing of our first home purchase, and we were more than ecstatic with our choice to retain his services. First, the closing was timely and without any issue. Secondly, we received a credit towards our title insurance premium, which as first time home buyers, saved us much needed cash that we put towards our new furniture. Lastly, his support staff was prompt, helpful and professional. Our calls were always taken and our concerns addressed. We will be using Wagner & Associates for our future legal needs!
