“I met George through a mutual friend, who highly recommended him, so I called him.  I was involved a very serious accident and needed a personal injury lawyer. During the first phone call, I told him that I got letters here that I didn’t know what to do with. I didn’t know where to start. They were letters from the insurance company, letters from the medical insurance company, letters from doctors. I had a pile of at least three, four inches worth of paper that I couldn’t understand, never mind go through. George said he’d come over to my house, because I explained to him, I was in a wheelchair. He was great. It was a great introduction. We had coffee, we talked a little bit. He said, “Where’s the pile of papers?” I said, “Right there.” He took them. He said, “Don’t worry about it. I’ll take care of this.” And we had a cup of coffee. He left, he took the papers, and I never heard from the insurance company or any of those people again. He took care of all of it, from the beginning. He maximized the amount of insurance money I could get for the accident. And my honest feeling is, he’s just great. He’s a great attorney. And he cares a lot. He does care about the people. I could tell when he came here  and how he was.
The staff at LaMarche Safranko Law took care of  whatever I needed, it was just fabulous. It was top shelf, if I called, I got George. If he was in a meeting, they left him a message. He called me right back after the meeting. Everybody was very courteous and very nice there. If I left a voicemail, everybody got back to me quickly. The level of service  was very, very good and I would Highly recommend them.”

“I wanted to express my deepest appreciation to Mr. Andrew Safranko for the exceptional job he did in regards to my legal representation. Mr. Safranko displayed the utmost in professionalism and discretion during the entire court process, and took the time to explain each and every step.

Criminal law can be arduous and intimidating, especially when you’re in the midst of it! But when you have legal representation at the caliber of Mr. Safranko, it can put you at ease and make the process a whole lot smoother. This is exactly what I found during during my case.

When dealing with Mr. Safranko, I received personal attention the likes of which I never expected from an attorney. When talking or meeting with him, it was evident that my case was the only one that mattered to him at that time.

Mr. Safranko’s support staff was also great to work with. They were efficient in relaying messages and data between myself and Mr. Safranko when he was unavailable. When going through something as difficult as a criminal case, it was reassuring to know that I could pick up the phone and speak to people who were in my corner and all working towards a common goal.

While this was my first involvement in the court system, it was less stressful than it could have been because of the exceptional job the Mr. Safranko and his staff performed. Thanks for a job well done!”

“Dear Andrew and George,

I cannot thank you enough for your hard work, diligence, and selfless manner that you put towards my legal difficulties in Colonie. From the first moment I met you, you helped reassure me that things were going to turn out in a more favorable manner than I originally thought. Clearly, the final result of my court case displays the quality of time and work that you put into this. The situation that I placed myself in has provided me with a very serious perspective into what is important in my life and the resolution of this has allowed me to obtain a second chance in my life.

Please thank your paralegals and office staff for being so caring in making sure that I got through to you and for reminding me/informing me of court dates and times. Thank you for always calling me back in a timely fashion, and for not just accepting what looked like was to be a much grimmer outcome.”

“Dear Mr. Safranko,

Thank You so much for answering my question, and so expediently!

The dedication, respect, and consideration with which you treat your clients, current and past, is remarkable. It is why I reached out to you when searching in my time of need, and why I would highly recommend you to anyone facing these type of situations. Thank you again.”

A client from Albany, NY

“My family and I cannot thank George and his staff enough for all of the support and guidance they have given us over the past six months. Anyone who has ever suffered a personal injury knows how difficult they are to overcome, but I’m glad we had such an intelligent and hardworking attorney on our side so I could focus on my recovery rather than on the details of the case.

Additionally, I greatly appreciated George’s patience and understanding throughout this long and frustrating process. He was always there to answers my many questions and he always kept me up to date and well informed.

I highly recommend George not only for his professionalism, but also for is attention to detail.”

“Dear George, Andy and Staff,

Thank you all for your kindness and all your help in getting back to my wellbeing and life. I could not have done it without you all. Everything is going so well again. I recommend you highly. Thanks Again!”

A client from Troy, NY

“Throughout the attorney client relationship regarding my personal injury lawsuit, George and his staff continually exhibited tremendous amounts of legal knowledge, skill, and a vast amount of expert resources that ultimately resulted in a final judgment in my favor. George was there every step of the way to explain where we stood and what to expect next and there was never a need to question his professional judgment as I knew he was looking out for my best interests at all times. I can not thank him enough for his help at a time that was extremely difficult for me and my family. I sincerely hope I am never in a situation again where I need his help but I am relieved to know that I can contact George and receive the best legal representation in the Capital Region.”

A client from Troy, NY

“Dear Andy,

Thank you so much for everything you have done for our son over the last three years. This has been a very challenging time for our family and the knowledge that our son has an attorney as capable and amazing as you are has given us peace of mind!

Even more importantly, you have impacted our son so positively, right from the first day he met you! He continues to do very well and you have a part in that! Thank you so much for the important work you do in turning people’s lives around. We are forever grateful!”

Parents of a client from Cropseyville, NY

“I cannot thank George E. LaMarche lll and his team for the excellent legal work they provided for my son, and in extension, our entire family. His experience, knowledge of the law, networking ability and communication is second to none. In our case, our son was wrongly accused by a small town police officer and charged with 5 tickets – with the worst being a DWAI. The fallout was incredible as he was arrested and his name appeared in the local paper. In addition, he was suspended from the team by the Athletic Director from the Fall Sport he participated in at a nearby University. After hearing about the incident, George came highly recommended by a friend who happens to be a capital district police officer. I contacted George and he immediately took my call and scheduled a meeting to meet my son the following day. He made no promises and was truthful with what the outcome may be – a best and worst case scenario. He immediately laid out a plan for us and worked diligently to study all the paperwork, police video and drug/alcohol tests in a an effort to support our claim. He also contacted the coach and AD at the University to communicate that the police charges were defensible and he felt our son would be exonerated. Within 3 weeks of the arrest, George was able to work with the DA to have all charges dropped and my son was only charged with a parking ticket. Not only is my sons driving record and criminal past clean – but George was able to quickly process the paperwork to get him reinstated immediately to the team. This was something we felt we needed to help him clear his name and reputation within the University. He played in the following game and now everyone at the college is aware that he was innocent, and the victim of an overzealous police officer. We cannot thank George and his team enough for all they did for our family during the process. He frequently communicated and also helped to continuously reassure us during this difficult time. Obviously, I highly recommend George to handle any legal issue you may have as he is without question an outstanding person and excellent attorney who truly cares about his clients.”

A client from Altamont, NY

“I am an attorney who found himself in the middle of a serious, personal legal matter that compromised not only my personal life but my professional life as well. I immediately contacted Andrew (Andy) Safranko, Esq. Andy worked tirelessly and extremely hard to bring my legal situation to a very favorable resolution. In so doing, Andy not only saved certain aspects of my personal and professional life, but perhaps my freedom as well. I can honestly say that calling Andy early in the process was by far the best decision I had made in a long time. I strongly recommend that anyone facing serious legal issues contact Andy.”

Anonymous Attorney from Albany, NY

“I can honestly say that the best decision I’ve ever made was retaining George LaMarche as my attorney. I was in a situation where everything wasat risk; my career, livelihood, and the ability to provide for my family. In desperation, I contacted over a dozen attorneys. The majority of the lawyers I spoke with promised results without seeing paperwork or knowing valuable facts. I can also say that the majority of the lawyers were more concerned with their retainer than providing me with an honest, educated opinion.

My search ended the moment I spoke with George. He promised me nothing! He did not ask for a retainer until after he reviewed the case and was able to provide me with an honest opinion. He knew I was under pressure and did not add to that by trying to hurry me into a signed retainer.

He explained any and all possible outcomes. Throughout the process, George was in constant contact, he never left me wondering what was happening. Thanks to George, my case ended with the best possible outcome. I’m also reassured in knowing that if I’m ever in need of an attorney again, I will only make one phone call, and that’s to George. I have and will continue to recommend George to anyone who is in need of an attorney.”

A client from Albany, NY

“The arrest of my husband in 2008 was an extremely difficult and emotional time for our family. The arrest turned our lives upside down. It was sudden and unexpected and had tragic emotional as well as financial consequences. I had no idea what to do under the circumstances.

We were very fortunate to have had Andy Safranko recommended to us as a defense attorney. We put ourselves in his hands and he immediately took charge of the situation. He worked diligently on behalf of my husband throughout the case and more than justified the trust we put in him. The outcome was better than we could have hoped for and we attribute that to Andy’s hard work and experience.

Equally important, in addition to his work on behalf of my husband, he always had time for family members, answering our questions, explaining the process, advising, and telling family what to expect. He was never too busy to attend to our needs. We feel he went above and beyond on behalf of all of us at a very difficult time.”

A client from Upstate New York

“No one likes to be in a bad situation, but if you need a lawyer George is your man. Not only does he point you in the right direction he offers good advice for your future. As much as we bring him business he does not encourage that next time anticipation.

George is a pleasure to know. Someone you feel comfortable with. He knows the law well and keeps you informed of any and all new developments with your case. If trouble arises and you need some answers call George. He will put your mind at rest. I am very proud to say that if I need professional help George will be the man for the job.”

A client from Albany, NY

“I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your excellent representation on my recent matter. I have worked with lawyers, and in law firms much of my professional life, but I have never encountered the rare mix of skill, integrity and humanity in one individual—you.

It was clear that you also command the respect of your colleagues, and the court, and have a reputation that is extraordinary in the legal world and among your clients, several of whom referred me to you. Rest assured that I will refer my colleagues, friends and family to you and your firm, because I know that they will be well served.”
