Review of Mr. Jeffrey Milbauer, attorney
I hired Mr. Milbauer to represent me in an unemployment compensation dispute. My initial consultation with Mr. Milbauer was informative regarding the process and timeline. Mr. Milbauer consistently contacted me to keep me informed of the progress of the case. Mr. Milbauer always promptly returned my calls and most of the time he was immediately available to answer any questions that I had. Prior to the hearing I met with Mr. Milbauer to discuss the details of the case. During this meeting I became impressed with the depth of knowledge that Mr. Milbauer had regarding the case. It was clear that a lot of preparation time had been invested by Mr. Milbauer. Mr. Milbauer was able to describe in depth all of the facts of the case including minor details that I thought were insignificant but turned out to be quite important. During this consultation I realized that Mr. Milbauer had not only read all of the numerous documents but had actually studied them and could recite most of them by memory. When the date of the hearing arrived I felt well prepared to present the facts of the case. The anxiety that I had felt was minimized by the preparation that I was given by Mr. Milbauer. Mr. Milbauer was polite and professional during the hearing. The witnesses were questioned by Mr. Milbauer in a manner that made it clear that my side of the story was the truth. The wording of the questions asked by Mr. Milbauer made it difficult for the witnesses to answer without hurting their own case. I was informed of the decision of the hearing officer by Mr. Milbauer as soon as he received the results. I am happy to say that I won the case. I do not believe that this case was easy to win but was made possible by the hard work, preparation, and professionalism that Mr. Milbauer provided in his representation of me. I would highly recommend Mr. Milbauer to any individual needing legal representation and I will certainly seek his assistance if I am ever in need of an attorney in the future.

"Attorney Milbauer exemplifies the very best attributes of an active attorney and a level of professionalism we should all aspire to. Honesty, dedication and a love of the law which means. giving back to others who lack our understanding of the law. The thousands years of combined legal experience of professionals activity participating in forum represent some of the very best of our profession, which is after all, at its base is desire to those in need. This Attorney’s experience allows to obtain excellent results for his clients. Most importantly, this Attorney is willing to help complete strangers (as is the case in this forum) with legal problem for which we may have some helpful information and thereby demystify the legal process as much as possible.

"I endorse this lawyer. Jeff Milbauer is extremely knowledgeable in the areas of law in which he practices. When he worked as a magistrate for the Butler County Common Pleas Court, his rulings were always fair. Jeff is also a very creative thinker which can be an extremely postive quality for a lawyer in both civil and criminal representation."
