Charged with theft with unlawful taking even thou there was not much he could do he took on my case, he kept me out of jail and had the 2 counts of felony lowered to misdemeanor charges even thou I will have a record for the rest of my life it sure beats 14 yrs in jail and a record THANK YOU MR. GURWITZ !
I just returned from speaking with Mr. Gurwitz per a DUI case. I would like to say that although he could have strung me along knowing that there wasn't anything that he could do, Mr. Gurwitz did not. He reviewed the case with me, and told me that there really wasn't anything to be done to help me, that I was hung, so he told me that I should save my money and not pay him to represent me. I respect his honesty and integrity. I highly recommend his services.
When I recieved, in the mail, these charges against me in May of "08" I thought my life was over. This incident supposedly happened in Dec."07" on my last drunk. I went to the yellow pages and for some reason Jacob Gurwitz's phone number jumped out at me. I made the call and he sat down with me and asked allot of questions and really got to know me. I was looking at jail time along with the embarrassment. With Jacob by my side and his knowledge of the system i only ended up with probation for two years and my record being expunged. He accomplished this with ARD. I was told that this was very rare. I had alot of questions . Anytime I would call, Jacob would put me at ease with the answers he had given me. This young man knows what he is doing and most of all his honesty is of the utmost. He's a hard working professional that really cares about the people he represents. So if there is a problem in your life that needs to be cleaned up and you feel you have no where to turn just give Jacob a call and he will honestly let you know if he can help you. Most of all I want to personally thank him for what he has done for me
first time I had been in trouble and didn't know where to turn. He was very straight with me and told me how it is. Handled everything and went about it smartly. I would call on him if i had anymore problems which I hope never happens again. Thank you sir.
As someone who works within the industry daily, I was ultimately impressed by Mr. Gurwitz's honesty, appeal and willingness to be forthright and downright honest about the merits of my case (all within a *FREE* consultation appt.). Additionally, his encouragement that I could represent myself pro se (versus just merely paying legal counsel for a "hand holding fee") was most impressive to me. This commentary is especially important in a world today where EVERYONE seems employed to make a fast buck and take advantage of someone else's naivitivity--or lack of know how in a specific regard!! What a welcome relief and change! I would not hesitate to refer anyone in need of good criminal defense and/or consult to the law firm of Feeney & Gurwitz for the very reason that I experienced. I don't believe you could be disappointed nor was I.
In 2009 I was at a crossroad. As many of us do, I found myself asking "how did i get in this situation?" Well, you can't change what has happened. However, you can change what will happen. I was attacked at a bar by a drunk heat seeking missile. As I was attacked something told me to defend myself. During our confrontation I struck the so called victim with my beer bottle. I cut the victim on the forehead and neck. Both cuts needed stitches and he was taken to the hospital. Although I defended myself I'm sure you can imagine the trouble I put myself in. I was charged with agravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, and disorderly conduct. All I could think of was "I wonder if Jake Gerwitz can save me once again?" I was facing state prison for the second time and once again Feeny and Gerwitz saved me from going to state prison. The extra effort put in by Jake Gerwitz at my trial paid off. He had all charges dismissed down to a dissorderly conduct. Once again I was saved from state prison by Feeny and Gerwitz.
I have no regrets. These attorney's handled my case well. I recommend them to all who ask.
