About Jeffrey

Learn Jeffrey’s areas of practice.

Experience

Currently the Firm spends a great deal of time with landlord/tenant issues, real estate sales, purchases, and other property related law, divorce and divorce mediation, and estate planning issues.

Jeffrey spent the early portion of his career working in the food and beverage industry, holding positions that ranged from busy boy where he began and worked his way up to executive chef while employed at over 30 different operations, both independent and corporate in nature. After attending college to hone his skills in that industry, he worked his way to the west coast and back before deciding to attend law school in his hometown of Philadelphia.

During his time in law school, Jeffrey was a member of the Moot Court team at Drexel Law School and interned for the Montgomery County District Attorney’s office and then took part in the Criminal Clinic Trial Advocacy experiential learning program at the Philadelphia Public Defender’s office during his entire third year of school.

Upon receiving his J.D., Jeffrey combined the skills he gained from his earlier career in foodservice with the knowledge and insight from law and embarked on challenges of a much larger scale, directing the concessions operation for Aramark at Citizens Bank Park for two seasons before taking over as the Assistant General Manager of the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. for Aramark as well.

By launching his own Law Practice, Jeffrey is able to focus on running things the way he sees fit, and giving clients the attention they need and deserve.

Landlord / Tenant hearing
The attorney that handled my case was confident, proficient & professional. The two admins that I dealt with at the office were knowledgeable & helpful. I was nervous because this was the first time I had to go to court but I was relieved when it was over & it turned out better than i thought it would.

Highly recommended
I had a horrible problem with mice at my last apartment and my landlord was unwilling to resolve the issue. I had just renewed my lease weeks before this became an issue. I knew I wouldn’t be able to get out of my lease without help, so I called Jeffrey. He was very quick to answer email and phone messages and worked very hard to get me out of my lease. I have lived happily at my new apartment ever since.

Diligent and caring
I had a awful mice infestation in my home and my landlord wasn’t willing to fix the problem. I was completely devastated and quickly realized that I would need an attorney in order to get out of my lease. I randomly came acrosss Jeffrey’s number and he called me back the same day. So thankful I picked him because he immediately went to work, listened to my problem, calmed me down and ensured me he would help me. His fee was very reasonable and he was very responsive and followed through. I got out of my lease in a timely manner and got my deposit back in full. Jeffrey is a good person and has a passion for his profession. Highly recommend!

Life Saver
Fall semester I started looking for apartments for the next academic year. I signed a lease and paid a deposit on one I thought I'd like. The building never followed up or even acknowledged that they had received these materials. Fast forward to about February. A good friend of mine asked me to move in to the soon to be empty room in her house on campus. Because I had still not received a signed and executed copy of the lease for the apartment, I did not think the lease was valid. I sent a written letter to the building notifying them I was no longer interested to which they responded with an email welcoming me to the WRONG BUILDING. This is when Jeffrey comes in and saves the day. He called the landlord right away and explained all of my requests. He gave me a few options of how we could handle it. we reached a stalemate with the landlord for maybe about a month when we were just going to wait them out and see what happend. Eventually, the landlord reached out again and Jeffrey negotiated to get me out of the lease. I never had to deal with the landlord myself because he was always there to talk to them for me. AND he saved me quite a bit of money in potential apartment rent! He is very dedicated, super affordable, and not afraid to take on a challenge. Before I had finally found Jeffrey, I had consulted a few lawyers who were unwilling to take my case and did not believe I even had one. In addition, he's super understanding and willing to work for students. Overall, Jeffrey is an awesome attorney and really saved my life with this one!

Jeffrey Katz Saves the Day!
Jeffrey is a great guy and a excellent attorney,. He went right to work and took no bull from my landlord or his attorney. He got back all of my deposit, all unpaid bills and money for not having lead base paint tests done. My Landlord was a real slumlord. But Thank God For Jeffrey Katz. He saved the Day

He went to war for me & saved me from paying $7,000 to my horrible landlord.
Calling my landlord a landlord is an undeserved compliment; they were a slumlord. They gave me the wrong keys prior to move-in, so I couldn't open my front door. My heat didn't work, so I slept in 50-degree weather while I waited (in vain) for the slumlord to do something about it. One day I came home and I had an infestation of huge black flies, feasting on something dead in the area above my drop ceiling. The slumlord ignored all of these and a dozen other issues. They fought me when I pressed them for expected completion dates. It was a nightmare. I felt unsafe and uncomfortable in my own home. Along comes Jeffrey. He picked up the fight where I left off, and he worked his ass off to get me out of that lease. Months went by, and the slumlord got nastier. My anxiety landed me in the hospital. When I got out, Jeffrey was still battling on the front line for me. I could tell he genuinely cared about my well-being and was just as disgusted with the slumlord as I was. The legal fight got uglier and uglier, but in the end, it was a success. I was able to break my lease without paying the remaining 6 months of rent. Jeffrey Katz is worth every penny and more. You cannot put a price on the ability to finally sleep peacefully in a safer, comfier home after the war we went through together. The entire time he was so kind, so genuine, and so good at his job that I don't know why anyone would seek out any other lawyer in Philadelphia. In summary: Jeffrey is the best. You should choose him. Choosing anybody else in Philadelphia would be a sad mistake.

Jeffrey is a Great Lawyer and a Good Person
Jeffrey helped my partner and me deal with a very difficult landlord who refused to repair code violations in the house he was renting to us. Jeffrey was able to negotiate a good agreement with our landlord that included the landlord making the needed repairs, as well as the landlord giving us money that more than covered our legal costs. Throughout the process, Jeffrey was extremely zealous in representing us and very generous with his time. He took great care to ensure we fully understood and were comfortable with every aspect of how our case was being handled. His fee was very, very reasonable for the amount of time and effort he ended up having to put into our case. I would definitely recommend Jeffrey as an attorney to anyone in need of legal help.

Very effective and hassle-free
Jeffrey helped us get out of a nightmare lease with a fair settlement. Was responsive, immediately eased our minds when we met him with his professionalism and advice, and within 3 days had achieved the objective he'd clearly laid out and discussed with us, case was settled/discontinued/ended and we can get on with our lives with minimal disruption. Thank you

Hire him!!!
I hired Jeffrey Katz to handle an issue with my landlord. Mr. Katz is professional, patient, responsive and "very down to earth." He handled the issue in a timely manner and his fee was reasonable. I really appreciated having Mr. Katz as a buffer between me and the landlord. Don't hesitate to hire Mr. Katz to represent you!
