The best
As a real estate agent, I had a complicated transaction and hired Mr. Puff to help. Jeff stepped in and within 48 hours had taken control of the situation and negotiated a settlement agreeable to all parties. I could not have been more pleased as it was my own home. Mr. Puff is an excellent lawyer and a strong advocate for his clients.

Real estate settlement
I contacted and met with Mr. Puff to assist me in the settling of my case regarding my late mother's estate. My step-father and his family were attempting to keep my mother's investment in their marital home and the interest (money) which she had left me in her will. Mr. Puff handled all of the correspondence with their attorney and was able to secure the money for me. He was very supportive, fair, listened to my feelings regarding the situation, and exhibited a superb knowledge of the law. I felt comfortable with him and felt he worked hard to settle the case for me in a timely manner.

A lawyer that actually cares about the person not their money
Mr. Puff is one of the only people I've met on this earth that truly cares about people. Not just amongst lawyers, but people. He helped me out and listened in no way anyone else ever has. Other lawyers make you feel like "this is the law that's all, and now you owe me this. " Mr. Puff actually listened and truly cares about me and my family. It never felt like it was about the money it was about being in the right and working towards what was actually fair.

Woodbury Attorney To Trust
Mr. Puff has been my family attorney for over 30 years. He has handled estate matters for both of my parents which were quite complicated--his approach with them during their lifetime was one which inspired and was worthy of their trust. He knows his stuff and made settling their respective estates a smooth process. Jeffrey Puff has also handled numerous real estate transactions for me and my relatives via my referral. All have been appreciative of his work and billing. I highly recommend this most competent gentleman and his firm.

Mr. Jeff Puff - Excellent Attorney
Mr. Jeff Puff, handle and case for me on behalf of my daughter. It was a creditor dispute that my daughter was facing and we did not know how proceed. However, after being referred to Mr. Puff's law offices, I knew after our first meeting with him that we were in good hands. He was extremely patient with us and explained all the necessary details pertaining our case. He was timely in getting back to us and any questions we had along the way he returned our calls and answered our questions timely. We were able to gain a positive outcome from the due diligence of Mr. Puff and his associates. I highly recommend Mr. Jeff Puff! Personally, I want to thank you Mr. Puff for doing an upstanding job with handling this case and I appreciate your attention and support in our matter! Much success!

Complex Guardianship
I went to Jeff because I was overwhelmed with a complex guardianship action brought against my husband by his sons, who were aggressive and intent on gaining control of his money. They had much more resources and knowledge than I did. It was a long fight. Jeff did not give in to them and insisted that we be treated fairly, He clearly communicated our position to the courts and was able to effectively counter the other side who were unreasonably demanding. Thanks to Jeff, my husband has his freedom, his money, and is free to live the remainder of his life at home with me. We can't thank him enough. It is a nightmare when these things happen and without Jeff, we might not have had such a wonderful ending. We are on our way to Florida to a well deserved vacation.

Best attorney in Gloucester County.
Mr. Puff in Woodbury has done legal work for me and my family for almost twenty five years. I have recommended him without hesitation to numerous friends and business associates seeking a referral. As a long time real estate broker who interacts with attorneys on a regular basis, I feel qualified to rank Puff among the best, both in his legal counsel and ethics. His billing is fair, I have never had a client question or complain about the fees he or his associates charged, which believe me, is exceptional--most people complain about attorney costs. Jeffrey V. Puff, Esq. has given sound counsel and more than the professionally required attention to even the most routine legal matters. Dozens of times he has handled complicated estate and personal cases with the utmost diligence in a timely manner to my or my client's complete satisfaction. If you want someone who will get the job done and not rake you over the coals with fees, you can feel comfortable with Jeffrey V. Puff.
