We first hired Jack because he seemed very competent to represent us in Court. It was a difficult case and we were feeling very vulnerable.
As time went on, we were even happier that we chose him because not only he will be your lawyer, he will HONESTLY do what's best for you. He will give you many advices (some you might not wanna hear but he will say it anyway because it's necessary) and he will always make sure you're up to date with everything going on and the options you have.
He honestly cared about us and our situation. He CARES.
Jack became more than a lawyer, we consider him our friend.
My husband and I highly recommend him. He knows what he is doing and if you let him do his job, you'll realize his choices and the way he handles your case are much better than what you had in mind.
Not only he helped us with this court case, whenever we had a legal question related to anything else, he quickly got back to us and was always very helpful and informative.
So if you are looking for a SMART, COMPETENT, CARING lawyer, Jack is definitely your man and I promise you that you will not regret.
Thank you Jack for everything you have done for my family and I. Thank you for fighting with us! We couldn't have won without you!

Got myself into a Dwi dilemma and needed a lawyer pronto. I found Jack on a google search, called him up and he was really reasonable with with his price (which was very great considering the urgency of the situation). Was very knowledgeable about the proceedings to which i had no clue due to this being my first, and walked me through everything. everything turned out just the way he said it would if not better so i would defiantly give him another call for anything in the future.
