Jeff made me feel very comfortable in what was a very difficult time. He knew exactly what to do and put my mind at ease many times about issues that would come up. He took time no matter where he was to get back to me as soon as possible. I appreciated his help tremendously.
Jeff has represented me twice and both times far exceeded my expectations. I never once felt Jeff and his team didn't do everything possible to provide the very best outcome for me. I would recommend Jeff to anyone looking for honest, hardworking, and dedicated representation.
I have gone through about 4 lawyers and then hired Jeff. I have had him in my corner now for roughly 5 years and I'm keeping him there until my daughter graduates high school. He is extremely knowledgeable and knows what to do or say and when to. He is very calculated and firm when dealing with the other side. You do not want a lawyer that's a pushover, Jeff is a fighter. Because of Jeff, I got 50/50 custody and much lower child support costs than most other guys I talk to. I've never been disappointed or felt let…
