I have enjoyed being a part of the legal community in the upstate of South Carolina for over 30 years.  Outside of the office, I have a variety of interests including tennis, cycling, triathlons, and music (I've been a semi-professional musician since I was a teenager).  I have two amazing kids; my son graduated from Clemson University with a degree in History, and my daughter is pursuing a bachelor's degree in Theatrical Production.

Professionalism with empathy and integrity; a rarity in the family law
Attorney Jeff Ezell has treated my case like I am a family member, not just a client. He has followed through with every aspect of my concern for my children and has shielded me from unnecessary stress during litigation. I highly recommend Jeff Ezell if integrity, empathy and professionalism is what you are seeking. I am confident that attorney Ezell will facilitate a final order that will best serve my children for their immediate and extended needs.

Best decision I could have made.
I came to Mr Ezell as soon as I recognized that I would need legal help with a family court case. He and Janet, the paralegal, were both very forthcoming and gracious to me. They helped me in so many ways and I can't tell you how much I appreciate their efforts and empathy toward my situation. All the legal work was done in a timely fashion and he kept in close contact with me throughout the entire process.

Better than expected
Mr. Ezell and his staff went above and beyond to make sure I was represented properly and kept informed of every step along the way. His paralegal Ms. Spruell is an asset everyone should wish for.
Response from Jeffrey Ezell April 5, 2019
I very much appreciate this review and the positive comments about our firm. This client could not be more correct that my paralegal and office manager, Janet, is one of the firms most precious assets.

Previous Client
I have known Jeff Ezell for well over 7 years and obtained him as counsel several times in family court matters. He represents what a lawyer "should" be and does so with such integrity. You would appreciate his kindness and compassion during such troubled times like a divorce, separation, injury.. After having several lawyers prior, I realized the importance of having one that listens, cares, and most importantly takes actions yielding favorable results. He is aggressive and takes on your case personally fighting for what you deserve!

Vicki has been a delight to work with over the course of several years. In that time frame we were presented with a number of different legal matters and questions, but we worked very well together and I am extremely grateful that she saw fit to write such a positive review of our firm and services. I wish Vicki all the very best!

The best
Mr. Ezell handle my case with the most professional and respect for the matter at hand which was a divorce. He helped with all the paperwork and helped me understand the process as well. I never felt more at ease during the most stressful time of my life. I want to thank him again for all that him and his staff did for me.

An expert on people, not just the law.
Mr. Ezell is everything I wanted in a lawyer and surprisingly more than I expected. Initially I contacted Mr. Ezell to see if I needed a lawyer in the first place. While cost doesn't reflect any professional's abilities, I feel it's worth noting here as most lawyers have fees, sometimes very expensive fees or even a retainer as a requirement just to initially meet. For my business though, chemistry is crucial, and I was able to meet with Mr. Ezell without retaining him and for a nearly incidental fee. The chemistry was immediate, and I didn't feel any pressure from Mr. Ezell to retain him in spite of the legal advice he provided being invaluable, certainly worth the price of our initial meeting. From there I retained Mr. Ezell. No time was wasted, every question was answered, every "t" was crossed and "i" dotted, and every option explained honestly. Email questions were responded to no longer than one business day, usually same-day, and most communication was directed through his Paralegal, Janet, to help minimize costs (Janet is also a fantastic professional). This has been a difficult time for me, and it's not over. I've been very apprehensive, and initially I thought trips to a lawyer would be the most nerve-racking part of the process. Instead, it's been the opposite. Mr. Ezell's office has helped bring me peace, for the lack of a better term. He knows the law, and how to communicate it. Mr. Ezell is personal, efficient, and professional. I didn't think I'd need a lawyer in my thirties, and now I know who my lawyer will be into the future.

I could not have enjoyed working with a client more than this one. There were unusual and delicate issues present, and we were able to work through them together to achieve what we both considered to be a very positive outcome. I wish William all the very best!

CLIENT
I have been with Jeff and Janet for several years. He has always contacted me when he gets my calls and been a rock for me. I have also sent clients to him for consultation and work, as our firm does not handle domestic cases. I think I'll keep him around!
