  • Thomas James Breen

    I litigated a condemnation matter against Jeffrey Beaver. He is a consummate professional, a leader in his field, and a fantastic person. His focus is on doing excellent work for his clients. In our case he was strong on the issues but a gentlemen with all of the people involved. Simply put, he's a class act and an outstanding attorney.
