"Jackson & Wilson came highly recommended to us from a Superior Court Judge who is a good friend of ours.  We were pleased with both the high level of professionalism and the constant concern for our best interest.  We were always kept well informed of the status of our case.  We feel highly confident in referring Jackson & Wilson to others."

-- Mr. Chris B (Local contractor and Laguna Niguel family man)

"Lisa Wilson provided us with excellent legal service.  Going into a lawsuit I didn't know what to expect.  Lisa answered all my questions and was always available to speak to me.  She kept me informed and did exactly what she said she would do.  I am very happy with the service she provided."

  -- Jacqueline Solovy  949-458-8312

"He (Mitch) has tremendous litigation skills.  I've never known another lawyer more prepared or focused.  He has the ability to dissect a case much like a skilled surgeon, with absolute calm.  Nothing seems to rattle this guy or distract him from his goal on a case, which of course, makes him extremely tough to beat.  He's also one of the most ethical lawyers I've ever know."

-- Attorney Charles H. Giampolo, former Head Counsel for Fortune 500 Company Wyle Electronics

"Lisa was extremely professional and answered all of our questions and addressed all of our concerns.  Whenever we called, she either took our call or returned our messages promptly with an update.  She went above and beyond to make sure we received a fair settlement.  We would definitely recommend and use her in the future."

    I consider Attorney Jackson the greatest living authority on negotiations, client interaction, and trial practice. I hold dear his teachings, as scripture, during my day to day practice and life. In addition to his lawyering expertise, I consider Attorney Jackson "the" class act. Simply put, Attorney Jackson is the Greatest of All-Time or the Michael Jordan of lawyers, only he has not retired. You'd rob yourself by not choosing Attorney Jackson to represent you.
