Jesse is an absolutely INCREDIBLE lawyer, and person! I got in trouble with drugs and was facing felony charges. From the moment I met Jesse, my parents and I felt comfortable as he has a warm presence and provided optimism during a time of distress. Jesse was patient with myself, my parents, and the court systems, and my charges were dismissed within 7 months. Within a year, the charges were expunged off my record. Jesse kept us fully informed during the whole process, and it was obvious that he is well-liked in the courtroom. He is truly wonderful and I am so thankful for all of his help to get me through such a tough situation. I highly recommend him, you will not be disappointed.
First off let me say there are not strong enough words to express my family's gratitude towards Attorney Scarf and all he has done on our behalf. Facing criminal charges is terrifying for lack of better words and from day one, I knew I was in the best hands possible. My husband faced a felony possession charge plus a felony probation violation from a previously botched case that another 10 star over priced lawyer botched. He faced not only a new sentence, but his previous sentence. Attorney Scharff went above and beyond to show my husband's accomplishmen's in his struggle with addiction to the DA and judge. Through it all he remained by our side, did not sugar coat matters, and genuinely cared about us and our family. All calls were returned promptly and we were kept up to date about any new news in his case. He made us feel like he was not just fighting for a client, but his own family member. As hard as some details about his case were to discuss, Jessie made my husband feel comfortable and not looked down upon. After all was said and done we got the very best outcome, we got a miracle - plea deal for the felony obtained while already on felony probation and the probation violation dropped! Jessie kept our family together and supported my husband's recovery. I would not have trusted this case to any other lawyer. This attorney is truly there for you every step of the way during the entire bewildering process of being charged with a criminal offence. When all was said and done, he ensured not only our legal needs were met above and beyond, but also our emotional well being. He took time after sentencing to walk us out of the court room, answer any more questions, accompany us to the probation intake, and even checked on us days after the case. If any member of my family needed a lawyer, even my own child, this is the only lawyer I would call. I cannot urge you strongly enough, don't call around and get smoke blown to take your cash, call Attorney Scharff!
This attorney is the best decision one can make. I was all worried for nothing while Jesse Scharff maneuvered the court room like a maverick and got the case dismissed!!!
Thank you so much!!! He is for real!!
I recently had a situation occur that was potentially damaging for the rest of my life. I called Jesse and within 5 minutes of discussion on the phone told him to sign me up as a client and asked when we could meet. We discussed a brief overview of my situation and met the next day. Based upon our brief, initial discussion Jesse had already formulated some ideas and then, based upon our further, in-depth discussions Jesse knew exactly what course of action to take. I left his office with a plan, a promise from him to communicate and a much better feeling. Jesse laid out the course of how things would happen and and play out and how he would address them and he thought best to move forward. I trusted Jesse -implicitly- and he delivered. He researched my situation/case, contacted the appropriate parties in a timely and highly effective manner and proceeded to move forward exactly as he told me he would.
Jesse never made any promises he couldn't keep/deliver and he was straight up with regards to matters that were of concern to me and potential "issues" with my situation. He quickly and effectively moved to trial but not without having a pretty clear picture of exactly what was going to happen. He told me what the outcome was likely to be and was completely honest during the whole process while giving me comfort with how the process would develop and evolve.
Jesse was amazing - when we went to court that day he was more than just my advocate. He had my back in every sense of the word and truly looked out for my best interest. The results that Jesse attained are amazing - when I think of it I am still just a bit dumbfounded on how quickly he acted, how effective he was and how he delivered results that exceeded not only my expectations but, honestly, my best case scenario.
Jesse will give you a review of your case, lay out his thoughts and opinion for you and tell you where you stand while making no unreasonable promises. I knew I had a good attorney when I read reviews from his peers and others in the legal field and they said they would choose Jesse if they needed an attorney - what I didn't know was that I would be getting someone who TRULY looks out for your human interests and rights. I could go on but I will close by simply stating that Jesse will tell you straight up what is going and and he will work hard for you, your rights and your interests.... and he isn't arrogant, judgemental or egotistical about it. Hire him -
Jesse is a great attorney! He kept us informed and made sure that we had all the information we needed to assist in getting the case dismissed. You've got to hand it to someone who knows the laws this well and is as respected as he is!
The Scharff Law Firm did a greatly job.
Throughout the entire process Jesse was very informative as well as calming and made us very confident of his ability to do exactly what he said he was going to do for me. Jesse eased our minds from the first conversation my husband had with him on the phone to the day in court which was invaluable.
At one of the most scariest times of my life the Scharff Lawn Firm came through for my husband and I and we can't thank them enough. At no point did I feel my attorney ever passed judgement. Jesse treated my husband and I with the utmost respect.
I would recommend Scharff Lawn Firm to anyone who is in need of a criminal defense attorney.
After having a few points on my driving record that are due to completely clear this coming January, I got a ticket for about 20 miles over the speed limit a few months ago and then another one for 5 miles over about a month later that Mr. Scharff combined on the same court date and got both dismissed to avoid affecting my driving record or insurance.
Mr. Scharff takes your case seriously, is up front about everything, kept me informed along the way, and uses all the resources at his disposal to acquire the best possible result. Highly recommended!
Jesse Sharff was referred to me by another local and respected attorney to help me with getting my drivers license reinstated after a 3 year permanent revocation. While I had been expecting to handle my own DMV hearing, get friends to vouch for me there, etc Jesse took the reins. He executed on a very creative idea and through his courtroom relationships and negotiations he was successful in working out an arrangement with the Court to allow me to drive again without jumping through the DMV hoops. Absolutely awesome. I am fantastically appreciative of what Jesse did for me and highly recommend him for anyone who needs a smart advocate on your side who is an expert in the courtroom.
Jesse is the best! He is confident, knowledgeable and dependable.
I hope to not need his services again, but there is no doubt that others should contact him for representation on criminal charges. Jesse will work to achieve the best possible outcome !
Jesse Scharff is the best. This was my first arrest, and it was very scary to think about what could happen in court. Attorney Scharff put my mind at rest. The day before my first court date, it became obvious that the accuser wanted to bring up other issues. Attorney Scharff assured me that he would not let that happen. That reduced my stress incredibly.
I followed his advice explicitly, and the case turned out better than I expected. His fees are among the best investments that I ever made! Thanks, Attorney Scharff!
