Attorney at Law
I am very satisfied with Gans Law. I had a total of four traffic cases, two of which turned out to be criminal. I was new to Orlando and the first couple attorneys I had consulted with were way too expensive. Gans Law was very efficient and also very affordable. They genuinely listen to your case and help you out the best way possible. As a result of hiring them, they dismissed my traffic tickets, including the two criminal cases. The world needs more lawyers of their morals and expertise. I would refer them to anybody. Thank you Gans Law!Caleb
