Terrific
Jeff has been terrific to work with: quick to respond, clear in his communication and thoughtful in his follow-up. He provided a thorough explanation of my options, allowing me to confidently move forward. Highly recommended.

Strongly Recommend
Jeff and his team did a great job with my case. I traveled to New York for vacation and unfortunately left with a felony charge. Knowing the severity of my charges and having to hire a private lawyer, I couldn’t shake the feeling of uncertainty in finding good representation online. After reading Jeff’s reviews I felt more at ease and decided to give him a call. I was extremely impressed by the response time and felt confident I found the right lawyer after consultation. Jeff and his team were professional, thorough and supportive throughout the entirety of my case. He was able to get my felony charge decreased to a non-criminal offense. My family and I appreciate Jeff’s help and strongly recommend him and his team to anybody in need of legal services. Thank you Jeff!

Excellent
Jeff is the best attorney I have ever worked with. From our first meeting, he explained everything to me in terms I could easily understand and was always very responsive when I had questions outside of our meetings. If anyone is looking for a knowledgeable attorney at a great price, then go to Jeff.

Thank you very much, Jeff!
It was a horrible experience to be falsely accused. I was arrested for sexual assault due to someone's ridiculous accusation. The top charge is a felony. I am working for a top company in my industry and I am in the green card process. My life is almost ruined. I can't imagine the consequence if I lose this case. I am very glad that I picked Jeff as my criminal defense lawyer for this case. The first phone call with him made me feel that he is the right lawyer I should hire. He believed my statement about the case and gave me the confidence to beat this case. The next day I went to see him in person and signed the contract. His judgment and analysis of the case are top-notch. The case went exactly the way he told me. I didn't even have to go to the DA office with proffer. Jeff made the entire process easy and smooth. The case eventually got dismissed. I know that I am innocent. But hiring the right attorney is very important. I initially hired a terrible lawyer and that lawyer told me to write down a statement about my case. Then he will send it over to the prosecutor. That stupid action could give me a big issue later on. At that time, I didn't know too much about criminal defense. After I spoke with Jeff, I told this terrible attorney to stop working on this case immediately. Otherwise, I may be in jail right now since a bad lawyer didn't know what he was doing. Jeff saved my life and I cherish every day more than ever after my case is dismissed. Many thanks to Jeff, you are a friend of life! I highly recommend Jeff to people who are in a similar situation. Don't give it up, don't lose hope, and keep fighting! There is always a light at the end of the tunnel. What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. During these 6 months of court process, I keep doing small good things for society, such as donations and returning lost money. God bless me! Good people deserve good returns.

Exceeded expectations
Jeff represented me on several cases in criminal court. He was able to unsuspend my license in connection with one case and I will be left with no criminal record at all. He was responsive, diligent, and got me an incredible outcome.

Direct, Real, and Your Priority
Background: Upon facing a civil manner with the State of New York between August and September earlier this year, I have had consulted with many other “top-rated” and “Best of Avvo” legal firms and lawyers - all of which used a lot of scare tactics, outlining comprehensive administrative plans, deferring scheduling of resolving manners to fit their busy schedules, and highly inflated consultation and matter fees. Jeff was straight-to-the-point, realistic, and provided complete resolution within 20 days of calling him. Jeff was very friendly to chat with, always available via text (even on weekends and during his wife’s birthday!). While I often felt anxious regarding the matters at hand, Jeff was able to ease my anxieties and press the matters highly effectively and efficiently well ahead of schedule. While the matter at hand was not very severe, Jeff was able to speak with the Assisting District Attorney and settle a resolution to the matters regarding a state-enforced protection order as quickly as he could. I appreciate having had Jeff by my side during this time in my life, and I look forward to connecting with him again eventually - even over drinks. Thank you Jeff

Excellent Lawyer
It has taken me two weeks to write this review cause honestly I don’t know where to start. If I could give him more than five stars I would. Jeff was outstanding throughout my whole process giving me that sense of peace, I was phasing a very long sentence but with Jeff’s excellent and dedicated work ethics I received time served. I would highly recommend him to whoever would ask me for feedback. He is the best at what he does.

Excellent service, exceeded my expectations. Jeff made us feel comfortable from the moment we met. Time serve was the unexpected sentence my friend received for her case, thanks to Jeff’s extraordinary work ethic. He is always available and provides you with comfort. From my experience he doesn’t just tell you what you want to hear, he speaks facts. He fights for you and gives his all. Jeff is always available when you need him always ready to answer any worries or questions you might have. Jeff’s is a great human being. I would definitely recommend him.

Great Lawyer
Jeffrey Chabrowe, the former Manhattan District Attorney's Office prosecutor for over seven years, is an expert in criminal law with over twenty years of experience helping me with a complicated case I was facing. As Jeffrey listened patiently, he collected the evidence for defense by gathering all the necessary information. His efficiency, speed, and thoroughness were excellent. Furthermore, he communicated with me in a way that gave me a lot of confidence about the outcome of the case. I was surprised by the results of my very challenging case, which could have had damaging consequences. Jeffrey provided me with excellent services, for which I am very grateful. As a result of the difficult nature of the case, his fees were quite reasonable. It would be my pleasure to recommend his services to anyone in need of a strong defense lawyer, and I would be more than happy to use his services in the future, should the need arise.
