We hired Jeff to assist us with a breach of contract dispute. We entered the case at a disadvantage because the other side hired a big firm to beat us up. Jeff defended us and challenged them at every step. Our case went from us being responsive to their demands to us gaining the upper hand through his hard work and persistence and the respect the other lawyer appeared to have for him. We ended up reaching a settlement that we liked. We believe it resulted from the other lawyer not wanting to litigate against Jeff in front of a jury.

Mr. Mandel handled a business dispute for our company. Unlike our prior lawyers, he knew what he was doing and did not over-bill us. His rates were reasonable and the time spent on our case was also reasonable. I felt comfortable in court with him and it seemed that the judge held him in high regard. I now have him handling all of our company's outside litigation.

There aren't enough words to describe Jeff Mandel. He is truly a magnificent lawyer and his knowledge of law is phenomenal. He was referred to us by our Immigration lawyer to help us with criminal matters that needed to be fixed in order for my husband to remain in this country. We are very very happy to say he did a wonderful job, he got my husband out of messes that we thought could never happen and believe me without him it would of never happened and my husband would be deported today if it wasn't for Jeff . So if anyone is looking for an attorney with knowledge, compassion, understanding, and the will to keep fighting for you Jeff is definitley the man for the job. I would refer him to anyone in a heartbeat, and believe me you will not be disappointed.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Mr. Mandel handled an appeal for me in a minor criminal matter that I had in a municipal court. The charge against me was made up by a disgruntled co-employee. It was a minor charge, but it meant a lot to me and my reputation. Mr. Mandel found an issue that my attorney missed. The court hearing the appeal reversed my conviction and dismissed the charge. They agreed with Mr. Mandel that a procedural defect prevented the State from trying to correct their mistake and conduct a new trial. Mr. Mandel's professionalism, knowledge, and ability to see "outside the box" convinced me to fire my company's corporate lawyer and make Mr. Mandel our new attorney. Thank you!

I went through a terrible legal situation six months ago, even knowing that I was truly innocent of all the allegations and with great evidence only some time away from being available, I lost the case.
Unfortunately my previous attorney just didn't set things up wherein my rights to present this evidence would be protected. Although I continued with my existing attorney's firm in order to file the appeal, I lost more and more confidence as time went on due to a number of factors. Lack of communication, lack of knowledge of the law, and overall fumbling of my case.
At this point I had to search and find the best appeals lawyer who would really dedicate themselves to my specific desire to have my evidence presented in court, which I believe would at least clear my name on the most heinous allegations if not have all legal issues against me reversed.
I turned to Jeffrey Mandel and the experience has been nothing short of an amazing turnaround. He is a consummate professional, responds clearly to emails and promptly and thoroughly.
He could understand my emotional state knowing that I have proof in my hands but... how to show it? It is a terrible feeling!
He didn't give me false hopes but that only meant that he also looked for the best approach to get our desired result.
Being in his presence you realize immediately that he is obviously bright and smart, and he thinks things through. He has been, really and truly, a huge blessing for me. I am glad I retained Mr. Mandel. After dealing with this other firm over the last few months, the difference is outstanding.

My lawyer at trial assured me everything would be ok. I lost. I asked other lawyers in the courthouse if they handled appeals- I was not going to use the same lawyer who lost my case. The name that kept coming up was Jeff Mandel. I googled his name and I was sold. When the other side found out Jeff Mandel was my new lawyer, they came to him to work things out. We settled the case and I learned a lesson - use a lawyer respected by other lawyers!
