NEW CLIENT
Just based off the consultation, high reviews, and his approach to my brief description of the OWI, he knew what and exactly how to handle it. He broke all the steps down. This is my first offense and just by looking at the reviews; Wow. Without hesitation, I hired him and he went right to walk with hearing requests and next steps. This guy does not play or beat around the bush! Thanks Jeff!

Knowledgable, personable, committed -- Mr. Maynard goes above and beyond for his clients
Jeff helped me with a family law matter. I've heard that custody cases can be an uphill battle for fathers, even when the arguments make clear objective sense. I think that might be the case in some situations, but having a great lawyer definitely helped in my situation. All of the pertinent issues were laid out to be discussed, and all of the personal attacks and opinions were set aside and avoided. The result is a better future for my son and you can't really put a price tag on something like that. Thank you Jeff!

Chalk me up as another satisfied customer
Jeff has handled at least three separate cases for me. He’s a true professional. His communication is clear, concise, and always accurate. His advice has never failed me. I recommend him without hesitation. If you’re looking for proper legal representation, call Jeff. You won’t be disappointed.

Simply the best!
From day one Jeff and his team has walked me through any issues I ever had. Explaining the ever complicated legal process can be a daunting task but he has the ability to break it down to terms that are easily digested. The professionalism and attention to details are second to none. If you want the best results possible in a way that's easy to understand this is the person for the job.

Affordable and reliable
The whole experience with Jeffery was fast and easy. Meet with him on a Thursday and went to court the following Wednesday for two separate courts. His associate represented me and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Both cases were dismissed. He was affordable and made been the whole process a breeze.

AMAZING RESULTS! So happy with my experience!
Thanks to Jeff Maynard and his team, I am now driving again with full privileges back. It is nothing short of a miracle. My arrest was four years ago, and I should have hired Jeff from the start. Over a four year period of representing myself, I had gone through sobriety court, been an active member of AA, did my time with a breathalyzer in my car. When it came time for me to apply for my full license, the state did not give it to me. Even worse, they REVOKED my restricted driving privileges and said it would be another year before I could get a restricted license back; another two before I could have full privileges. That's when I called Mr. Maynard. Again, without Jeff's help I would have been facing another two years without a driver's license, and I depend on my transportation for work. Jeff and his team assisted in getting me a hearing date (which the state had already denied when I applied without representation). They met with me before the hearing so I was prepared for the questioning, and they helped me build my case. Within two months of working with Mr. Maynard, I had my full driving privileges back. I am a free man today! If you are reading this, do not try to do it on your own, and do not go anywhere else. This was my second DUI in a three year period. There is no doubt in my mind that if I had worked with Mr. Maynard and his team from day one, I would have had my license back years ago. The last four years have not been easy for me, but the last two months of working with Jeff have been. I am so grateful for my new lease on life. Thank you!!!!

A True Professional
Jeff is always quick to answer a call. He has always provided me direct, easy to understand explanations to difficult legal situations. There were a few times to where I thought I was going to see considerable jail time and thanks to his expertise I have managed to avoid that. Whether it be a parking ticket or a criminal case Jeff Maynard has earned my respect, trust, and return business.

A lawyer who understands his clients
I met Attorney Maynard in 2012. He defended me in court and also showed interest in keeping me from having to return. Since then, I have recommended his services to members of my community, friends, and family. Attorney Maynard is the best at enlightening clients of their options and keeping them aware of their situation throughout the legal process. Peace of mind is hard to come by and Attorney Maynard definitely understands.

Bulldog Mentality
I can't say enough about the job Mr. Maynard did in getting my OWI reduced to careless driving. His relentless effort to achieve this goal is why I would recommend him to anyone in a similar situation..

Best Lawyer Ever
Maynard Law Associates is the most honest and hard working law office in the region. Mr. Maynard's expertise and the expertise of his Associates is top notch. They tell you exactly how it is and how they can help, and does not misrepresent with false promises. Honesty and Integrity is what you get when you hire them. I cannot say enough good things.

One of the best and upfront individuals I know.
Jeff has been my attorney for over 14 years and I by the outstanding work of himself and his law firm, is the very reason I have my freedom and able to watch my kids grow up. I am a habitual felony offender who out right should have been incarcerated for many years but by his excellent and professional work, he has kept me out of prison. I've since changed my life around but it took a lot of court appearances for him and I for me to decide to change. Through Jeff's counsel and personal and private conversations he and I have had over the years he has never judged me and always treated me with respect.If your looking for one of the best lawyers in Michigan I strongly recommend Maynard Law.

JUST AN UNDERRATED PERSON AND ATTORNEY
Jeff is an unbelievable lawyer and coming from a guy who doesn't trust or like lawyers . Bottom line I was looking at 0-15 years jail time on a habitual felony DUI and he got me 25 days in jail and 1 year probation for me what a gift. So far EVERYONE I have run into same case same deal 2 years jail time 10 years probation 1 year in jail 5 years probation the least I saw was 6 months in jail 3 years probation no one I talked to got my deal NO ONE!!!!!!! He always kept in touch and he never was late or missed a court date "I was shocked" and fought to the bitter end and to be blunt the only person that DID NOT see his genius was myself. I will always be grateful to Jeff. I'm TELLING you HIRE this man he's no joke he GETS IT DONE. Just do what his team says and you will see what I'm talking about. It's hard enough to live in Michigan make it easier by having the best representation Michigan has to offer when your in trouble and you will see what I'm talking about.

Divorce Settlement / Child Custody
Overall, Jeff handled my case very professionally. He answered my many questions and concerns tactfully. He was very honest and upfront with the information provided even if it was something I didn't wish to hear. I am truly appreciating Jeff and his support staff during my 2 year endeavor. There is nothing more important than peace of mind while dealing with a difficult time and situation.

Extremely rude while answering the phone
Extremely rude. I called expecting a voicemail and a man answered “law office”. I mentioned what kind of lawsuit I was looking to file. In which he started yelling at me “ma’am do you realize it’s 7 pm on a Saturday why are you even calling a law office right now.” And I said you answered the phone and said “law office” and he yelled stating they don’t file the lawsuits I was requesting even tho the sign says any legal services. To which I told him he was very rude and he hung up on me. I’m flabbergasted at how rude someone offering a service was. Maybe get a voicemail service so people can leave a message and get a return phone call when you are open.
