"In 1993 I had the misfortune of becoming involved in a legal matter. I had the good fortune to be referred to Gary Jaburg. He took the time to explain, in detail, our options and the direction he thought best to follow. We took his legal counsel and the matter resolved without the expense and stress of a long and protracted legal battle, which our previous law firm had told us was inevitable. Jaburg Wilk has continued to provide me with the same type of practical, no-nonsense legal assistance for both my business and personal. From estate planning to every day business matters, I recommend Jaburg Wilk."

-Owner, Arizona based transportation company.

"Gary is an extremely gifted lawyer. He gives practical, factual advice and is excellent at calming the client down when emotional. He has a team of lawyers he works with and I have found them to be professional, honest and of superior quality. I have worked with many law firms over the years as a CEO and this is the best law firm I have found in the Valley."

-Owner, Arizona Educational Software Company.

"A few years after we started up Sleep America, we realized that there were many legal business issues we had little or no knowledge of. I was fortunate to meet Gary Jaburg who introduced me to his experienced and talented attorneys, who had the expertise to deal with our legal needs. Each of these attorneys had the same no nonsense, direct approach to finding very smart, logical and cost effective solutions to our legal issues. As we grew, Jaburg Wilk helped us avoid difficult situations before they occurred by being prepared and maintaining very high ethical standards. This led to us to winning the Better Business Bureau's Ethics in Business Award. We are grateful for the partnership we have maintained with this outstanding law firm for many years!"

-Len Gaby Co-Founder, Sleep America.

"Gary helped me navigate the difficult waters of dispute resolution by clearly discussing the alternative strategies along with their pros and cons. He is forthright and his advice from years of experience is invaluable. Considering he is also managing partner of a very successful law firm, he is generous with his time and yet economical and efficient in his approach. The integrated practice of Jaburg Wilk is a good fit for an entrepreneur like me. They have advised me in matters of divorce, estate planning, tax matters, litigation, HR, insurance and real estate."

-Owner/CEO Visiquest Properties and Niche Residential

"I've been a client of Jaburg Wilk for 4 years.  During that time they've helped me with a variety of issues from contracts to representing me in litigation.   Gary Jaburg and Roger Cohen did an excellent job navigating the legal waters,  but they also have the soft-skills necessary to adapt and  work productively with a variety of prickly personalities encountered in the legal profession.  My litigation required expertise in several unrelated fields such as 1st amended rights and intellectual property.  I'm glad to have a firm with attorneys specializing in each area of my suit, working together as a team to provide the strongest defense possible.  Gary and Roger were highly responsive to my questions and available when I needed them.  Every phone call and email was answered in a timely manner and they even provided guidance during my non-traditional working hours.  I'm glad to have Jaburg Wilk on my team and highly recommend them. "

“Gary Jaburg and Kraig Marton of Jaburg Wilk represented us in an employment dispute. The well-established reputations of Gary and Kraig garnered immediate credibility with the opposing lawyers. Throughout the process, they provided us with balanced and objective insights into the strengths and weaknesses of our position. At the same time they presented the strongest possible case to the other party and maximized our potential for success though citations to relevant case law, thoughtful venue selection, and a demonstrated willingness to “go the distance”. Mr. Jaburg in particular has an unmatched gift in high-stakes negotiation which ultimately resulted in a negotiated resolution prior to litigation being filed. The negotiation produced what I view as a best case outcome. I estimate we received a greater than ten-to-one return on the total amount of the legal fees we incurred with the firm. Gary and Kraig delivered both peace of mind and incredible value. Choosing the Jaburg & Wilk team proved to be the best possible decision we could have made.”

"I was very fortunate to have been referred to Kraig Marton's office after my employment was terminated. Since this was my first time seeking legal advice, I was entering uncharted territory; but Kraig, and his team made me feel extremely comfortable and the service I received was exceptional. What I found most compelling is how Kraig takes a personal interest in his clients and how he is candid in his evaluation of the merits of one's case. Not only did he brilliantly pursue my claim, he also was able to secure a higher severance package than I ever expected! Kraig's exceptional negotiation skills and legal aptitude prove to be a winning combination. I hold Kraig and his team in high esteem-they are 'best in class'."

Mitchell Reichman

Practice Areas:
  • Family Law
"My divorce was a long and painful road, but Mitch looked after me and I’m better protected because of his efforts. He is a professional in a realm of work where clients are emotional, wounded, confused, and angry— and I experienced all of those.  I have great respect for his ability to respond to the many difficult and often unfair situations without judgment or malice.  He never prevented me from expressing emotions, but always kept me on track with the process.  Mitch served me well and I am grateful for his help, honesty, and partnership." - Client (May 2015)

"I recently had Mitch Reichman, of Jaburg and Wilk, as my lawyer during my divorce. He represented me extremely well in all the different aspects of my divorce, including mediation and the subsequent trial. As a self-made businessman who accumulated most of my wealth during a long marriage, I would strongly recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer who is very knowledgeable in business valuations, sole and separate property issues, spousal support (maintenance), and child custody issues.  In particular, his experience in working with expert witnesses concerning the valuations of my multiple business and property holdings was extremely helpful in my case. His knowledge and understanding of the different valuation methods and all facets of valuing a business was the key to successfully ensuring that the court accepted our expert's testimony and values while disregarding the opposing expert's flawed information.  Mitch was responsive, proactive, timely and "spot on" providing legal advice to me.

-John P

"I have worked with Mitch Reichman for the last 7 years through my divorce as well as post divorce disputes. Mitch continually demonstrates expertise, thoroughness and always listens to my concerns rather than treating me like just another divorce. He took the lead to minimize damage to the future working relationship with my ex-spouse while representing me with strength. Unlike many attorneys Mitch worked to finish the process and not drive up the costs to both parties. I have recommended him to several close friends who were equally thrilled with his expertise and responsiveness."

-GR

"Mitch is an attorney you want on your side when you are going through a divorce like mine which involved substantial assets and was complex. Mitch is a very detailed and understanding attorney. He understood my emotions and problems and worked with me explaining the legality of how things work in family law. I was able to get a fair and amicable settlement as a result of Mitch's dedication and hard work. Mitch negotiated hard with the opposing counsel until the eve of the trial and was able to get the settlement signed and completed before trial. He was also ready for trial if the settlement did not occur which helped create the leverage necessary to achieve the results. People often have settler's remorse, however I can say with all certainty that I do not and will not."

-RP

"The worst in all of us can emerge when fear and anger are triggered by divorce, issues around money, custody and the sense of loss that accompany the end of a marital relationship. What is so desperately needed during this process is the quiet knowing and the voice of reason that only comes from thirty years of direct experience. The value of having someone who can speak in practical terms about what is truly reasonable, but also likely to be acceptable cannot be calculated in dollars alone. Mitch Reichman is the best person and the best attorney to have in your corner. "

-Sylvia Nguyen, MD
