I recommend checking with the AZ State Bar and/or doing a public records background check before hiring this man. In hindsight I cannot recommend him. Jeffrey Blackman actually obtains some of his business through a referral arrangement he has with another lawyer named Dennis Grey, where in exchange for the referrals he pays Dennis Grey a 10% finders fee. In other words 10% of what Jeffrey Blackman charges, goes to Dennis Grey. Jeffery Blackman withdrew from my case before it got off the ground, claiming "the attorney client relationship was broken". We had only appeared for two five minute continuances of pretrial conferences but he claimed he had done almost $13000 worth of work. Dennis Grey had even returned his 10% to Jeffrey Blackman, and Jeffrey Blackman kept a portion of that too. I ended up hiring another lawyer who charged less, and did a better job.
I hired JB to defend and clear me of a bogus complaint filed against me in a protective order violation by my divorcing wife. I had arranged to meet my 2 sons at the other end of a park where they were playing ball, on my birthday, so they could give me a birthday card. . . JB attempted to clear me but was failing. I expressed my concerns to him, and hired anther attorney. Because I did this, in telephone conversation, left him a voicemail while he was still my legal representation, he turned aroud and accused me of harrassing him! He took me to court, well knowing I was innocent, and described me to the judge as a creepy, night stalker, who was stalking my wife!!! He has since cost me thou$and$ defending myself AGAINST HIM!! Of course, he lost his case, and both my new attorney and I have since filed complaints against him with the AZ State Bar Assoc. that are currently under investigation. No I could never recommend JB, it's not in your best interest. In fact he's had several negative reviews describing similar experiences to mine.
I have used Mr. Blackman twice in the past for family criminal issues. Mr. Blackman will keep you up to date by phone and mail, work diligently to uncover anything that will help your case, and give you the best result possible. His ability to "work" things out wth the other side is very benificial to the case. I recommned Mr. Blackman to anybody who wants an aggrssive honest attorney working on your behalf.
