We remember a restaurant critic in south Florida by the name of Robert Tolf, who reviewed restaurants all over Florida for the Sun-Sentinel newspaper and Florida Trend Magazine for many years. Mr. Tolf’s reviews were a must-read before visiting a new place to eat because they were well-written and very accurate. His writing was so detailed you could almost taste the food as he described it’s flavor, smell, and texture. He detailed the quality of service, the cleanliness, and ambiance so you had a good idea what you were in for before you made the commitment to spend a lot of money on a gourmet meal. Mr. Tolf also wrote several books about history and he passed away in 2015.
Today, everyone is a critic! Reviews are on Google, Yelp, Facebook, and dozens of other internet sources where ratings range from “the best ever” to “not fit for my dog to eat!” Reviews are great, but in order to be credible the source should be honest, knowledgeable about the subject, and have no bias. We know a restaurant owner who was “barbecued” by someone who had just broken up with one of his servers. A lovers spat resulted in an undeserved one-star rating on Yelp, and it’s difficult to work your way back to a good overall rating after one of those.

★★★★★ My amazing experience with Arleen and Gary Lazarus
Lazarus and Lazarus is a dream team to handle any legal issues. I was unfortunate to be injured by a truck while crossing a road as a pedestrian. Not knowing how to handle this situation, my friend referred me to Gary Lazarus, who was beyond professional, compassionate and honest, yet easy to be understood in such a delicate situation. Besides his direct responsibilities of handling the case, amazing network of doctors, who all made sure I was recovering well, Gary was patient explaining me the entire legal process and the steps we had to go through, as I was never in a situation like this before.
Gary and his team always made me feel welcomed, my calls were always answered, never rushed nor postponed. If someone out there is doubting about hiring this attorney, I strongly recommend to do so. Him and his partner Arleen are willing to do everything and more to make sure their clients are healthy and happy. Last, but not least, the financial outcome is also very important, and Gary was able to increase the net settlement many times more from what we were offered in the very beginning of the case.
