Mr. Pierce
I hired Mr. Pierce on a criminal case for me, he always communicated with me during the whole process. He never promised me anything or lead me to believe one thing and another thing happen. He was very successful for me. What he said would happen, happen. Highly recommend.

Excellent attorney!
I am so glad that I chose Mr. Pierce to represent me in court. He was the only attorney to return my call over a holiday weekend and assured me that everything would be okay. Every time I had a question regarding my case, Mr. Pierce was there for me and returned all calls and emails in a timely fashion. When it came time for trial, he was an expert in the courtroom and I had an extremely positive outcome. I definitely recommend him for any legal issues. Thank you again Mr. Pierce for your hard work and excellent legal representation.

Excellent Representation
Our Atty Jeff Pierce was a God send. He was professional and courteous. We could not have been more pleased with the outcome of our case. We truly believe we could not have gotten the same outcome without him. We would not hesitate to recommend Jeff and would certainly use him again ourselves

Customer review
Jeffery Pierce represented myself for a DUI charge. He was diligent in retrieving the evidence to show the court there was not enough to charge me with. He was reasonable I think since this was my first time to include I held a CDL license. Would definitely recommend Jeffery Pierce to represent you in your case if ever needed.

Delivered on expectations
Mr. Pierce represented me in a criminal case stemming from an incident over the summer, he was very professional and was in constant contact with me throughout this process. Mr. Pierce talked with me about the case and taking into account my disaired out come he never made any false claims about what he could do he just stated the course of action he would take to achieve that goal. Mr. Pierce delivered above and beyond with regards to my case getting my case dismissed without me even having to go to court!

Mr. Pierce a lawyer who stands behind his word
In August 2015 me and my husband were looking for a lawyer that would help his situation. I knew that proper protocols were not being taken when it came to my husband's arrest. We contacted Mr. Pierce and he was very polite and explained the process up front, which was great! So my husband went to court multiple times and we both stayed calm. He did everything that was ordered of him but in the end Mr. Pierce represented my husband and his firm very well! He went to court and won his case and if anyone is ever in a situation in which he specializes in, he is the man you need to call! I thank him for everything, from my calls, emails, and texts! He is a lawyer that we will always refer if you need any help!! He believes in justice and tje system of going to bat for his clients!!

Great lawyer!
I was stuck in a really unfortunate situation where I got a DUI inside of a house. Most attorneys said they could get it dropped to a public intox. charge but Jeffrey was able to speak to the cop and the prosecutor and got my case dismissed on a technicality. I literally just had to show up to court and he handled everything for me. He came prepared with paperwork with questions to ask and knew exactly how to tackle the situation. Would highly recommend him.

All You Need to Know
Don’t take a pin knife into a gun fight! Regardless of your circumstances of what brought you to bankruptcy, you need someone who understands the rules, guidelines with a long history of successful court cases! Not all attorneys are the same; I fired two before working with Jeff. As a certified bankruptcy specialist, his skill sets are outstanding. My suggestion is simply hire him, stay the course even when you have doubts because everyone does and you will be just as thankful, as I was. My case was not easy and required an expert. I never write reviews but I made an exception for an exceptional attorney!

Delivered results.
Jeffrey Pierce illustrated a realistic result of what his services could offer and did more than deliver. My case's outcome was better than expected. Mr. Pierce operated cool, calm, and professionally with experience. Wouldn't change any decisions I made with the hiring of his services.

Jeffrey Pierce saved my career.
After receiving a ticket that would cause me to loose my license (which is required for my career) I didn't know what to do. Thank goodness I had Jeffrey Pirece on my side. After speaking with me he assured me everything would be ok;and it was. As a result of Mr Pierce's representation I was allowed to keep my license and continue with my career.

Highly Recommend
Jeff did an outstanding job representing our family regarding a felony and misdemeanor charge. The felony charge was eventually lowered to a misdemeanor and this was due to the fact that Jeff was persistent. He was actively engaged with all parties involved including the judge, prosecutor, other attorney and detective. Jeff is very knowledgeable about the law but more importantly he knows how to drive the case home. Our case was quickly resolved and we are glad it is now behind us. We highly recommend Jeff for any of your legal issues.

DUI
I hired Mr. Pierce for my DUI case and have been extremely satisfied. He met with me the day I called for an appointment and was easy to reach. My court date was set in a timely manner and he got me the results I wanted. As long as I follow my probation I won't have the DUI on my record, which was my goal.

Professional you can count on
We hired Mr. Pierce to help us through some financial restructuring. He was a complete professional from day one, answering all of our questions. He was always accessible and reassuring through the entire process. We would highly recommend him for all of your legal needs.

MR PIERCE HAS REPRESENTED MYSELF AND MY WIFE ON TWO CASES INVOLVING FINANCIAL MATTERS. BOTH CASES WERE HANDLED NICELY AND WERE TIMELY CONCLUDED.

Excellent Trial Lawyer Skills; Got my case dismissed
I retained Mr. Pierce to represent me in a DWI case. I thought I might have a case due to the officer involved speculating as to the amount of alcohol that I had consumed. I tried to explain that I had had a drink, but it was with my dinner and only one drink. Then I found out that I was videotaped when the officer had me walk. I tried to explain that I had tinnitus in both ears and had difficulty especially at night with my balance. I was so thankful I found Mr. Pierce and my case was dismissed once Mr. Pierce met with the prosecutor and explained the facts. well, I did learn a lesson, but it's nice to have someone that can come to your defense when you don't get a fair deal to start with. Anyone both myself and the police officer learned something from this. Thanks you Jeff Pierce.
