Attorney Eger is the Best!!
Attorney Eger is the best! He saved my kids from my abusive husband and got the me the best result in my divorce! He is very kind and really listened to my story. He told me the solutions and I made my choices. Attorney Eger did not promise anything he could not deliver, and I actually did better at court than we had planned. I would highly recommend Attorney Eger because he is the Best!

The lawyer you want to have . Buy your side.
I had a very complex case. I wasn't on the Birth Certificate as the father. Even though I Saw my daughter often. When I was in Rhode Island But I lived in Indiana. The mother would not let my child come see me in Indiana. I had major problems. And 6 years of back child support. Jeffrey got my back child support knocked off . I can now see my daughter. For the whole summer. I get to see my daughter for alternate holidays. Which I never got to see her. Basically, I got my rights. Which is a beautiful thing. Thank you, Jeffrey eager. You're one hell of a lawyer.

High-quality legal services with empathy, efficiency and extensive expertise.
I’m writing this review for the person out there in search of a lawyer they can trust to provide high-quality legal services while keeping their priorities at the heart of litigation. I sought out Jeffrey Eger when I was entering a new chapter of my life requiring the relocation of my children. Jeff took the time to gather the history of the case and truly listened to my priorities. My ex-husband and I have worked hard to establish a positive co-parenting relationship, always putting the best interest of our children first. Although I felt confident that relocation was in their best interest, I worried about the logistics. Jeff was able to calm my fears and work with both of us to maintain our positive relationship while moving forward with the relocation. He did this through active listening, promptly responding to messages, providing examples of scenarios, and sharing his expert legal advice. Jeff’s extensive experience showed through his efficient, intelligent, caring responses. We have since moved and the adjustment has been amazing. As I watch my daughters’ eyes sparkle in their new environment, I can’t help but think of my gratitude for Jeff and all he has done for our family.

Best lawyer
Spent tons of money with 2 prior lawyers, but Jeff in days had results on my case in family court that others couldn’t achieve in 3 years. He is the best lawyer I’ve had the pleasure of hiring, also gives the best advise as to how to compose yourself for your case, and personally you thoughout life. Jeff is down to business, matter a fact, no crap attorney, but gets you the best results while not giving you false hopes and the facts. Would recommend Jeff for any level of legal issues.

This man is about his clients, not the paycheck
Mr. Eger was an amazing lawyer. He is not a yes man, he doesnt tell you what you want to hear but what you need to hear. He gets straight to the point with no bs to confuse the issues. I went through a nearly year long custody issue with my ex and her terrible excuse of lawyer. From the beginning he was professional and honest. He refused to allow the other attorney walk all over me, despite the others attempts to bleed me dry of money in order to win the case. He always put the needs of the client first, saving me time, money, and my ability to spend time with my children. Even after the case was settled, he still checks to make sure things are going well and that the orders are being followed. Would definitely recommend him to anyone and can't wait to put another retainer on him for the inevitable future.

you want him in your corner!
Any time you need legal guidance the level of stress and emotional toll are going to run high. I hold Jeff in high regard and truly appreciate how he helped me with my family court case. I can’t say he always told me what I wanted to hear , but what I can say is that he was reasonably priced, professional, and extremely attentive and honest throughout the process. In the end , with his help I ended up getting results in a matter of weeks that I had Previously worked years to achieve without stepping foot into a court room. I would definitely recommend you reach out to him if you are in need of any legal help and he will give you his experienced opinion without sugar coating anything.

100% recommend
I don’t have the words to describe attorney Jeff Eger. He is a very kind hearted man who takes no BS. Jeff is affordable and will work with you financially. Trust is a understatement, going through a custody case is horrible to deal with and although I didn’t quite see it at first, he undeniably meant it when he gave me his word. I quickly learned not only did he have my daughters best interest at heart but also mine. He helped me turn my life around, would check in on me even on the weekends or late hours. I highly recommend Mr. Eger for all of your legal needs as not only will you get everything he promised and more but a friend as well.

Skilled, honest, and enthusiastic lawyer! Diligent in fighting for his clients. Highly recommended!
I want to thank this man so much for helping my best friend and goddaughter. He was informative, patient, and kind. He would answer questions at any hour. Offered guidance, advice, and tough love when needed. Custody battles are emotional and difficult for everyone involved. He quickly developed a strategy for the situation and utilized everything necessary to acquire the best outcome. Can I just mention too how funny this man is and how much it helps when you’re going through something you cannot find humor in. I cannot imagine my friend finding anyone better suited for helping her. He is a gem and I am eternally grateful and recommend him. Thank you Jeff.

I trust Jeff with all my legal needs.
I can only say positive things about my experience working with Jeff. From the moment I met him, he put me at ease with his disarming sense of humor and calming demeanor. He is understanding, kind, caring, and extremely thorough in his approach. Jeff represented me in a very ugly divorce/custody case. Jeff filed an emergency motion and got back ALL the money my husband had stole in our divorce. I was rewarded placement of the children and child support. Jeff also made it that I was NOT responsible for any of the debts my husband had created during our marriage. Honestly Jeff was a godsend. He was with me every step of the way. Jeff stepped in and stepped up without any hesitation and gave me courage, strength and hope when I had none left. I felt defeated and lost and Jeff gave me the confidence to stand up and defend myself. It was a very difficult time for me, yet somehow, he managed to make it less painful and got me and my children what we deserved. I will always be thankful for what Jeff did for me and my family. Jeff is my attorney for life!

Thank you! Your situation, involving the safety of your young children and money taken by your spouse, called for an emergency motion since irreparable harm could have resulted from not acting quickly. Another good reason for hiring a lawyer. I am so happy that you are onto your new life!

Knowledgeable helpful caring
Jeff Eger helped me immensely while I was going through a difficult and contested divorce in 2013. He helped me organize my thoughts, make lists of important information that was crucial in my battle, helped me to stay calm in order to get the results I was seeking. He was able to solidify special requirements I was making for uneasy visitations with my children’s father. He made suggestions that I fight for (acceptable accommodations, required communications while my kids were with him, and much more.) He wouldn’t take anything less and was a master at negotiating my case. I would highly recommend him!

Divorce is tough when people cannot agree on division of property and kids. It's a big change for everyone and Family Court is not always fun. I was very happy to help and see you get to a better place for you and the kids! Thank you for your kind review!

Excellent service
Jeff recently helped my wife and I prepare our wills and Powers of Attorney, which were somewhat complicated due to our having a blended family. He asked many questions and provided many answers in order to ensure that he was clear about our wishes and we were clear about our options. Excellent service!

Up front, honest and caring
Attorney Eger not only made a difficult situation a bit easier to deal with, he was also kindhearted. His manner was very professional and friendly. He helped me to understand the important points of divorce and what to be aware of. I was impressed with his knowledge and skill at helping me come to terms with my situation. Never mind those TV lawyers!!! Call Attorney Eger who's years of experience helped make a difficult legal situation work out very well, and also having things explained so I could understand.

Dependable, Knowledgeable and Effective
Attorney Eger was very dependable and effective in my divorce that involved my 3 children, the house, alimony and child support. His knowledge and experience was instrumental in settling what I thought was going to be a very contested divorce.

Thank you very much! I am very happy for you and the kids that things worked out so well!

Informative, Trustworthy and Dependable Attorney
I hired Attorney Eger to handle various custody issues for me. He was attentive and focused to my child's needs. He went the extra mile to obtain the results for my child. He was very sensitive to the emotional and financial toll this took on me and went above and beyond to ensure the best results. EXCELLENT ATTORNEY! I would highly recommend to everyone.
