Outstanding Counsel and Genuine man!
Jeff has an excellent understanding of Class Action Litigation. He has constantly and genuinely kept us informed on the stages of our case laying events out in common terms instead of Legalese. As a current 25 year veteran of Law Enforcement I have come across many Lawyers, but none like Jeff! He is a true professional and a sincere and genuine man!

I contacted Mr. Norton when I found his website online regarding America's Servicing Company and found that his company was investigating them. I emailed Mr. Norton with my problems with this company he responded promply. I hope to work closely with him in the future

Treats You Like A Person, Not Just A Case
From my first phone call with Jeff I knew I had the right lawyer. He was personable, knowledgeable, and I hung up feeling like this man really wanted to help me. My previous attorney could never be reached by phone and would not reply to e-mails, nor would her associate. Jeff keeps in close contact, and quickly replies to e-mail queries. I highly recommend him and am grateful to have found him.

ASC
Mr. norton came into my life at the right time, I have been fighting with my servicing company for two years. I have shop around and contacted many attorneys looking for answers. I believe that I have found the right law firm to take my ASC on. I look forward to winning this one for all the miss treated clients of ASC.

competent and genuinely concerned
I've never had a more responsive attorney. He always calls or emails back in a timely manner and certainly makes me feel like my case matters to him personally.

Attorney Jeffrey Norton
He's very personal and thorough,he answers all my questions, I was very impressed on how he keeps me informed about my case. He's easy to reach on the phone, but if he's not avilable,he's always called me back in a short and a very reasonable amount of time,plus he has a very friendly demeanor. His assistant Brooke is also up to speed and very knowledgeable about my case. I've had other attorney's in the past who were the total opposite of Jeff. Nomally I don't participate in surveys but I felt compelled to partake because Jeff is so much better than your average attorney, plus he's also a good guy. Thanks.
