Outstanding
Jessica Dumas and her staff were outstanding throughout the whole process. Both the service I received and the level of communication, from beginning to end, were top notch. Everyone that I dealt with was so friendly. They were just amazing.

Honest
Ms. Dumas and her firm worked hard for me and got my disability claim approved. Everyone I worked with was always polite and so friendly. They were honest about what to expect in the process of filing for disability.

Attorney got Cold feet or scared
Real truth! I kept seeing 444’s everywhere. I was praying for a lawyer because I needed professional help. Although I was physically delivering my paperwork at the disability office, I was being told that the paperwork wasn’t being received timely and/or I missed the deadline Via denials. It was stressful to complete by myself! I decided I needed representation. One day I watching TV. On TV there was a commercial for an attorney that also said their contact was 444-444-4444. I called the number they advised because they couldn’t rep me. However, they suggested Jessica Dumas! I gave her office a call, I provided the needed information. The girl call me back and advised Jessica Dumas said yes they can rep me in my case on January 23rd 2020. They sent me the paperwork via USPS! When I got it, i took all my paperwork, medication and etc that I had collected since 2016 when I started applying for disability, after my mom passed away and I became ill, I was stressed and in constant chronic pain after having a major back Infusion surgery due to Arthritis, degenerative disc, spinal issues, back, leg, & neck pain. Which is the reason I’m applying for disability! Well, to make a longer story short...after accepting my case in October of 2019, Jessica Dumas is now saying she won’t....not that she can’t....she said she won’t represent me! I feel...the only reason I can think that she won’t is because when her office sent me two sets of papers via mail to take to my doctors to fill out & complete! I inquired & asked her when she finally called me, after two months, why couldn’t her office have sent the paperwork directly to the Drs...Jessica became offended it seemed!!! She Then advised me that she doesn’t think she can represent me abruptly!!! The reason I am reviewing her is that the 2 months her & her office sat on my case & didn’t do a thing, something could’ve been done! But here at crunch time & close to my court date she advised me she will not represent me! I feel like she got cold feet! I am so disappointed in Jessica Dumas & her law firm right now! Everything that was promised didn’t happen! The young lady that helped me when I first walked in to meet her & her team (In the office to the right when you walk into her law firm)and take the paperwork in advised me of the steps. She said someone would call me to get other evidence, to disgust the case, talk about the court date and more! However, none of that happened! Why would her law firm take the case if they couldn’t handle it! I could have continued searching & looking for another Lawyer! Now I’m very close to the court date with no representation! In all of this timeframe(2 months) of hiring Jessica Dumas..... I met Jessica Dumas the day I initiated it by dropping by the paperwork myself voluntarily at her office after she accepted to represent me in court and I really only spoke to her the day via phone when she advised me she will not take my case! So basically I was in contact with her twice out of two months! She did send me a letter that I need to get representation ASAP...well DUH!!! The letter also states I do not owe her anything....DUH again! This was Not a good client/ attorney relationship/privilege from the start.....aka A RED FLAG! How could she??? Why is bad always present when you trying to do the right thing?
