"Jeff really saved my case! He acted both as an attorney and a counselor at the same time... An expert in his field, Jeff really knows his stuff. I shudder to think what might have happened if I went with another attorney. So thank you, Jeff! You're the Man!" – Posted by a client M.H.
Jeff won both of my cases!
Jeff is an excellent and extremely knowledgeable, bright and well respected attorney... He was very supportive of my desire to see through my case to trial despite the fact that it was brought in a challenging court, to say the least. He set realistic expectations along the way so I knew what I was getting myself into but never encouraged me to make a deal, knowing that that didn't sit well with me....I doubt I would have had the same results with another attorney. We won both the DMV and criminal cases.– Posted by a client
