Menashe Goldelman
International Art Dealer

Andrey is a very reliable, trustable person, extremely reasonable and correct in dealing, always taking care of your interests.

Eduard Trampolsky
Financial Analyst and Broker, USA

I have known Mr. Nazaretsky for more than ten years and have used his services on a numerous occasions, ranging from a routine half hour legal consultation to very complex legal issues involving large banks. Throughout all my engagements with Mr. Nazaretsky he has deeply impressed me with his unremitting attention to detail, strong work ethics, willingness and ability to go the extra mile and his commitment to final result. His drive and energy are overwhelming, while his knowledge of legal nuances can have some scholars envy and scratch their heads. On a personal level, Mr. Nazaretsky has deeply impressed me with his straightforward, no bullshit/take no prisoners, approach. Over the last couple of years I have recommended Mr. Nazaretsky to a number of colleagues and friends, all of whom, as I know, ended up being satisfied customers of Nazaretsky and ENR Law Offices. I enthusiastically recommend Mr. Nazaretsky as a dedicated attorney with relentless focus on final result. Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity

We were represented by Andrey Nazaretsky better than I could ever imagine. Our inheritance case from the beginning ,in my opinion, had no chance for success. Several attorneys, we talked to, didn't even want to consider taking this case. Andrey took this case, explained to us every legal step, guided us through the entire process until it’s successful conclusion. I want to mention his judgment, analytical research skills, and separately, his communication skills. I also want to mention his associates, who worked with him on our case. Great office, great people, great professionals.
