First i would like to thank my lawyer.I had a real-state problem with a builder concerning time frame of closing.My closing had been put off several times by builder.I took my contract to attorney Lefco he sent a letter to builder.Within a couple of days i got a call from builder verifying my closing date and also they would be paying for rate lock fee that attorney Lefco did not ask for in his letter to builder. (added bonus).Great Job

Stanley M. Lefco
My experience and outcome with Mr. Lefco was wonderful. I was experiencing a situation that I felt I had no control over and was quiet nervous with the situation. Once I employed Mr. Lefco, I was able to relax knowing he was my "bodyguard-protector" which is how I felt. Not only was the outcome terrific for me, Mr. Lefco made me feel comfortable and less anxious during this time. I highly recommend hiring Mr. Lefco for legal services.

Mr.Lefco handled a case for my husband and I concerning our home.before we hired him we faught this case for 5 took him less than 6 months get the case to the judge and got our paper work to our home.the person that we had to take to court was a really hard person to get up with and to deal with,but thanks to Mr. Lefco we are free of that stress at last.

Very Kind Attorney
I met Mr. Lefco through one of his many volunteer activities back in 2004. I contacted him and asked to interview him and learn about being an attorney. I interned with him as an undergrad and he's been very kind to me. He has assisted me with any letters required for my profession and has maintained contact and support throughout the years. Mr. Lefco taught me about estate law and the day-to-day of running a legal business. He's very professional, courteous, and kind. I'd recommend him highly.

If you are faced with a challenege Stan is the Man
Mr. Lefco is one of the most outstanding lawyers I have ever encountered. He is honest, has integrity and compassion. I had a tough situation I was facing and Mr. Lefco was there every step of the way going above and beyond his call of duty. I would definitely recommend him and will use him again in the future.

Filed in wrong court then refused to correct billing mistakes
Stan filed my case in the wrong court and the case was closed and now I am the defendant in another court where I was originally the plaintiff. I paid off my balance and then 1 month later received a bill twice my previous balance with multiple errors. I emailed Stan with no response. Since my case was handled so poorly I switched to another attorney and and am still dealing with the repercussions of his poor representation. Stan also refused to arbitrate the unjustified fee with the state bar and instead filed a lawsuit against me and has been continuously harassing me to pay something that is not owed. Since I got him through legal shield they are refusing to help defend me and I had to hire another attorney to deal with him. He also has a poor memory. Hiring him as my attorney was one of the worst decisions I ever made.

Not Reliable
I was referred to Mr. Lefco through LegalShield and although he is a very nice person, he is not organized and couldn't answer many of my questions. I had a small claims dispute against my former landlord for an unpaid deposit. Having a real estate background, I don't see how he couldn't answer my simple questions. I ended up having to research and file the suit on my own.
