A+++++++
Mr. Lampert is an attorney “par excellence”. After our first meeting, I knew that I was in capable hands. He engenders trust through his knowledge, experience, listening, asking the right questions and guidance. He is a no-nonsense, down-to-earth individual, who treats his clients with respect and empathy but provides matter of fact information. He will be my go-to any time I need legal assistance.

Landlord / tenant issue
Mr. Lampert is an angel from heaven. He listens so attentively to my issues, so much patience. I thank you Sir for accepting my case. I love you as my attorney, I have found the needle in the haystack. Living in New York and having to deal with tenants in West Palm is not comfortable.

Big Thank You!
I asked on AVVO re my ex-husband having Parkinson's Disease, & his wife sending my monthly alimony checks late every month & could I make her send thru automatic direct deposit. Mr. Lampert answered my question saying I could not make her do anything as it was my & my ex dispute but that in case of going to Court we could try to depose the wife to obtain the ex's location as he's in a memory-care facility. Thank you Mr Lampert for answering my question thru AVVO. I truly appreciate your insight into the matter.

Nicest guy in the world!
I was hesitant to contact an attorney because of fear of judgment. I had been a defendant in an eviction lawsuit and after representing myself at first, the case became too complex for me to navigate. I called Mr. Lampert at 5:00 on weekday and he still took my call. He listened attentively as I described my case history, and walked me through his thoughts, running scenarios together and offering his insight, time, and advice even though we hadn’t even discussed retainers or attorney fees. He devoted over an hour reviewing and discussing the case before a last minute hearing that was approaching. He did all that without even asking for my business or requesting commitment. He was truly just making himself available to help someone seeking legal guidance. He asked me to send him relevant docs and is going to review the case in more detail later this evening. Its not straight forward like typical eviction cases since the current CDC COVID moratorium has been put in place, coupled with a proposed amendment by opposing counsel made this case a bit more complex. I’m grateful that he was so willing to give me his valuable time and insight without ever meeting me and made reaching out for help a relieving experience. Truly great person.

Landlord Contract
Wife and I met Mr. Lampert in his Office. We were seeking his advice for our signed contract. He reviewed and sincerely explained why not to do what I was thinking is the correct procedure. Very pleasant person, clearly explained us several factors. We were absolutely satisfied with his Law knowledge without any doubt and immediately followed his advise. I definently would recommend Mr. Lampert for Legal litigation with at most confidence. He addressed and advised on every aspect we had doubts. At the end: how much do we owe you Sir: he stood up and said nothing for this consultation. He got up and shook hand with us. Trusted Law firm.

Professional Well Informed Honest Integrity
Hired Mt Lampert for a few issues over the past 3 yrs. I will be forever grateful for his service. He is knowledgeable, detail oriented, on task does not miss a thing! Most grateful and impressed with his continuous contact. Kept me well informed through the process. If I had questions he always replied the same day/within 24 hrs. Billing is fair and honest. I will continue to recommend Mr. Lampert wholeheartedly and without hesitation.

Response from Jeffrey Lampert January 4, 2017
Thank you for taking the time to give the positive review. It is particularly satisfying when considering, if you are who I think you are [by your first name] it has been literally weeks, possibly over a month, since there was a need to communicate, and so it is not something very recent that prompted you to post the review. And if you are some one else, well, glad that I left you with a positive lasting impression.

Nice as can be as his client but a Pitbull if you're on the other side!
Mr. Lampert has represented me and my business on a few occasions. He's always been a great resource prior to needing his help. He's a wealth of knowledge. Always directing me to avoid litigation or having to hire him for his services. However, when the rubber hits the road and I've needed him he's been a winner. I highly recommend Mr. Lampert for any legal needs. Even if it's not his specialty of law that you are seeking he has multiple contacts that can help.
