About Jeffrey

Learn Jeffrey’s areas of practice.

My MISSION is to be respected by my clients as a professional who does his best to be a competent, prepared, organized, conscientious, loyal, affordable, and caring legal advocate.

My GOAL is to create satisfied clients by providing sensitive counsel through the various parts of the legal system. I attempt to make what could be a scary experience a positive, unintimidating one as inexpensively as possible without jeopardizing a case. I take pride in my ability to represent a diverse clientele in various realms of problem prevention and conflict resolution (based upon being a trained Mediator and CLASP Creator), primarily for Family/Juvenile Law and Criminal Defense (as well as Entertainment, Civil Litigation, Estate Planning/Administration, and Unemployment Compensation Law). When possible, you and I will work as a team to try to settle issues without the stress of trial, expense of depositions, unpredictability of court, etc. If your matter involves an area of law with which I am not familiar, I can direct you to a colleague with the necessary legal expertise; my Officer/Chair Positions in various Bar Associations and other contacts have proven to be very helpful. In the event of your having limited resources, I can even act as a “legal coach,” advising on an as-needed/a la carte/unbundled services basis for a reduced fee/no retainer. I am proud to have long ago earned “Distinguished BV” Martindale-Hubbell and “Superb 10.0” www.AVVO.com ratings plus BBB Approval several years ago. I even make old-fashioned house calls if needed.

Fantastic Lawyer
JEFFREY POLLOCK has represented me many time throughout the course of ten years and each time he has provided excellent results. Most recently, Jeffrey Pollock has represented me and my daughter in a complicated family law case. I was absolutely blown away by how Jeffrey eased my daughter's stress and anxiety by talking to her on her level of understanding. I would highly recommend Jeffrey Pollock for any type of family law matters.

Professional & Efficient
I was pressed for time to get my divorce process started. I reached out to Jeff and he got back to me the same day. He explained the next steps and what was needed on my part. He reached out to the other party to arrange signage’s. He was professional, fast and efficient. His prices were reasonable and his process was painless. I would highly recommend!

Amazing, Prompt, Seasoned & Insightful
I found him through NLSA after two bad brief encounters with others that acted like they did not care but he did and was very personal and open. He will be on your side 100 percent and very straight up with you. I will definitely recommend him for Divorces! If you see this Mr. JEFF, THANK YOU SO MUCH! MAY YOUR PRACTICE CONTINUE TO SUCCEED FOR YEARS TO COME. NAMASTE.

Highly recommend
I found Jeff through NLSA for my child custody case. From day one he has been very attentive to all of my questions and concerns. During our first consultation I had to bring my kiddo along & Jeff gave her a gift to take home that she absolutely loved & this was before I even paid any retainer fee to hire him as my council. Jeff is very knowledgeable and he has gone above and beyond to ensure I am on the right path to get to my end goal and to make sure the court understands exactly what I am asking for and why. I am beyond happy with his services thus far & I trust that our relationship will remain positive and successful.

Awesome!
I found attorney Jeff thru legal aid services when I was looking for someone to handle my divorce, the way I wanted it handled. He went above and beyond my expectations, very compassionate, knowledgeable, friendly and professional. Any time I had a question, I got a response the same day. I am happy to say that after 36 years, I am divorced. Jeff made the process extremely easy, even when he had to deal with my ex. Thank you so much!

Super lawyer
My case was all over the place. Seeking help in custody and supports cases I turned to NLSA (Neighborhood Legal Service Associations), they offered a plethora of attorneys. Through my research I found Jeff Pollack. His resume speaks for itself. Jeff helped me get my case organized, determined what we attack first and proceeded to get in the weeds! Not only being prompt on the case, times, & locations, he handled it with straight professionalism. Jeff is the man with a plan!!!

Grateful and humbled
Since day one, he has been phenomenal and very attentive. The service he provided was clear and excellent! He guided me every step of the way and kept me up-to-date with any changes or processes. He is genuine and concerned and finding the best legal option for your case, and puts the quality of a person before anything else. It is not easy always looking for a lawyer, but you can trust he will have your best intention in heart and mind. I will be keeping his contact information, if I ever have a matter I know I can trust in his services.

Took my small case seriously
I came to Jeffrey Pollock with a relatively small and frankly silly case, but Jeff took me and my case seriously and helped me navigate the situation in a favorable way.

Attorney Jeff Pollock was extremely responsive to all inquiries and usually responds the same day if not within 24 hours, which was much appreciated. If I needed to talk by phone, appointments could be set up as soon as possible. Jeff has either the knowledge to help with your needs or has the resources to refer you to where you can get additional help. Jeff will go the extra mile to assist you with what is needed to meet deadlines and complete processes.

Well done!
Jeffrey was referred to me by a client who had been through a particularly difficult divorce. He did an amazing job dealing with my very difficult ex. What was supposed to be a simple signing of papers turned into circus of nit picking and ridiculous demands. Mr. Pollock handled every new situation without hesitation. In the end he went above and beyond to ensure that the papers were signed and I was protected.

Best and only experience with lawyers
Jeff is a excellent lawyer! Upon meeting him I was consulting regarding a divorce from my husband. He was so attentive and personal. He spoke about his family which helped me to put trust in him because as a family man he could understand my concerns regarding my family. As uncertain as I was he took out his book of answers, asked aloud the question I was having and informed me to close my eye and place the card into this book. The answer assured me of why I was there consulting. I decided to try marriage counseling before moving forward. I can say that the answer the book gave me was absolutely correct, he would never change and I hired Jeff as my divorce attorney and never looked back. It was a long process but he continued to do his best at accomplishing what I needed him to do and advise me of the next steps if things didn’t go as they should. Which is exactly what happened. My then husband refused to sign the papers and his attorney could not get ahold of him for several months. His attorney withdrew from representing him as a client. Jeff advised me to talk to him before we made any attritional steps towards proceeding. All I can say is thank you to Jeff for advising me to talk some sincere into him. Just 5 days of less later he finally contacted his lawyer and signed the final divorce papers. Jeff released me from a extremely bad marriage and I will be forever grateful. Your a rockstar, Jeff!

Atty. Pollock was very attentive to/prepared for my needs with timely responses, no matter the day/time. I never went a significant amount of time without a response to a concern. I am highly pleased with Atty. Pollock’s preparation/knowledge about my unique circumstances. He always provided his insight and at the same time, made sure to address/meet my needs. Atty. Pollock was in constant contact with me, communicating developments/progress regarding my case. I was informed regarding the costs/fees/expectations that would be needed to cover my legal matters. I highly recommend Atty. Pollock for your legal concerns, he will deliver!

Mr. Jeffrey Pollock, Attorney-at-Law (Brilliant and Excellent)
April 13, 2022 Regarding: Jeffrey Lawrence Pollock, Attorney-at-Law. If I could give Jeff 10 stars out of 5 I would! Jeff is Honorable, Ethical, Brilliant, Compassionate, and Kind. Jeff has represented Jimmy with loyal, conscientious, competent, prepared, organized, affordable, and caring legal counsel. I live in Colorado and Jeff is my set of “Eyes” on the situation in Pennsylvania who keeps me informed. He has drafted and sent excellent letters to the VA informing them they are holding Jimmy hostage and in prison. The VA social worker keeps telling Jimmy that she never received the POA documents, which is blatantly untrue because they were sent certified and signed for by the VA. Attorney Jeffrey Pollock forced the VA to transfer Jimmy out of the VA Hospice System and into regular VA care which saved his life. – Marianne M.
