He did a phenomenal job explaining all the options to me and very quickly responded to all of my questions. Stayed in constant contact with me through out the process. I have and will recommend him to my friends that may need his services.

Small business owner
My wife was the first one to need Jeremy’s help when she found herself in a toxic work environment. Jeremy spent hours on the phone and in person walking her through the difficult and emotional journey that workplace litigation can be. He was always quick to respond to calls and emails and by far surpassed our expectations. When I received a cease and desist letter regarding a non-compete agreement he was my obvious choice of legal guidance. Jeremy is a perfect mix of wise, helpful, knowledgeable but honest when setting expectations for what may or may not happen as you deal with workplace law. My family would highly recommend his services!!

Wonderful and Professional Attorney
Jeremy is a great attorney. He was personable, professional and got the job done. He was prompt about returning phone calls and emails. He was also able to explain what was happening in layman's terms. Thank you Jeremy for making what was an unpleasant issue, pretty quick and painless.

Employment Issur
Jeremy Summerlin was recommended to me by a customer. Turned out to be a very successful recommendation. He was extremely professional but also had a terrific sense of humor in the trenches. It’s never pleasant to sue someone but I never regretted my choice of attorneys. They had my back and gave me the best options. Jeremy is fantastic. I will call him first if I ever need legal advice.

Review Jeremy Summerlin, Atty.
Jeremy was consistently available with answers for all questions. He always responded promptly. He and the firm kept me reassured at all times. The scenario was, " you just do not worry about anything--WE GOT THIS!" And they did. Very comforting to turn your problem over to experienced professionals and let them simply "do their job".
