Client Testimonials

Several years ago, an unreasonable lawsuit was filed against me and my family. I hired Mr. Gilbert Vara, Jr. to represent my case, and that decision is one of the most important ones I have made in my life. Mr. Vara and his very capable Legal Assistant, Krystin Pechacek, treated me in the most professionally proficient manner, handling matters on time and always corresponding with me, while maintaining a friendly and approachable relationship.

Then, when the time came to take the deposition of the person who filed the lawsuit, Mr. Vara questioned her with dignity and professionalism. I was impressed by this man who I would definitely call a Gentleman. I’m happy to say that Mr. Vara won this lawsuit for me. Therefore, I would highly recommend the law firm of Gilbert Vara to anyone, and should the need arise, I will call him again.

When dealing with legal matters such as divorce, my expectations were to keep it as simple and as stress-free as possible. Gilbert Vara certainly made that happen. Gilbert sat with me upfront and went through the details of my situation in order to fully understand my needs as well as what I should expect from him.

He took time to discuss my case, and also took time to understand me personally. Gilbert was very clear in laying out a plan for my benefit, how the matter will proceed and finally come to a close. I was able to talk through anything I did not understand and he and his staff were very helpful keeping me updated with the progress of my case. Finally, the case came to a close as simply as possible and without surprises.

When sellers leave their junk behind

Ever toured a home and gotten a sneaking suspicion that the sellers were going to leave a lot of useless junk? If the seller intentionally leaves personal property behind, it could be considered “abandoned.” That means you now own all that stuff, and you’re on the hook for cleaning it out. To prevent that from happening, it’s a good idea to include language requiring sellers to be out of the house by a certain period of time prior to closing. Stipulate that all personal property, garbage and debris not included in the sale must be removed by that deadline. If…..

Biden administration has big plans for nation’s housing market

Last fall, the Biden campaign put forward an ambitious housing agenda designed to eliminate housing insecurity for millions of Americans. The plan received little election-time focus or debate, and that relative inattention, pundits say, could make the proposals more “politically feasible” to initiate. Here’s a recap of the major themes: Expand the housing choice voucher program: Biden’s plan is to make Section 8 housing vouchers available to every family who qualifies. Currently, only 1 in 5 eligible households receives assistance because the pool of federal dollars is too small. Expand affordable housing: Biden’s campaign plan includes a $100 billion affordable-housing…..
