  • Lyle A. Jones

    Jeff is a conscientious attorney that works hard to give his clients good representation. Although busy, I have seen him put in the extra hours in trial preperation and case research. If the results are available, Jeff can get them.

  • Charles Lee Holliday

    Jeff Lee is the lawyer you want when you need someone to listen, someone who will value your input on the strategy of the case while leading you toward resolution of the matter. From my discussions with him, I know that he is a scholar and a tactician who avoids cookie-cutter solutions and will attack an issue with the client's individualized needs in mind. He realizes that for many client's the legal system can be scary, stressful, and sometimes, life changing. In short, he has a quality missing in some lawyers -- he cares about his clients.
