Conscientious to the extreme
I referred a very good client/friend to Jeff for assistance with a matter that was outside of my expertise. Jeff knocked the ball out of the park and obtained outstanding results at a very fair cost. My client reported, and I know from personal experience, that Jeff was very responsive and easy to reach. Jeff went above and beyond the call of duty, and my client was thrilled. I would not hesitate to refer additional clients to Jeff.

Juvenile possession and auto forfeiture
Jeff is a consummate professional, a lawyer's lawyer. He's always conducted himself with integrity, and is a calming influence in the midst of emotionally charged circumstances. More importantly, he's liked and respected by both detectives and prosecuting attorneys. Jeff managed to get my son's case reduced to probation with eventual expungement of his record.

Detroit's 36th District Court
You never know what to expect at Detroit's 36th District Court. I was facing serious charges that could have resulted in revocation of my professional license and up to 90-days in jail. Mr. Bauer was able to negotiate a reduction in charges that allowed me to stay employed and out of jail. He took the time to meet with my wife and assure her everything would be okay. He helped me find a better way to live through recovery. Thanks Jeff. you saved my marrige, job & life

High Speed Rail Investment
Mr. Bauer is one of the most professional lawyers I have ever worked with. He is very knowledgeable and I trust his expertise completely. He is a "lawyer's lawyer" who you trust! One would say Mr. Bauer is the epitome of honesty and integrity. Jeff is one lawyer who outshines the rest. What Mr. Bauer did for me was give me advice on a business I wanted to invest in and he was absolutely right on. The company will be doing billion dollar work globally and I became a partner! Thank you Jeffry, you were solid on your investigation of this rail system.

Used Services Several Times. Wills and Debtor in Collection Issues for questionable customer I had.
J.M. Bauer is knowledgeable, and if he has a question he will ask or tell you he needs to perform a little research. I have found he does not "pad" hours to his billing, in fact he does not bill for short phone calls, or include minor office work on invoices. He performs what he says he will do, and knows how to work thru the system. Jeff is a sound lawyer, and does not get caught up in formalities, and has his client's best interest at heart.

I first contacted Attorney Bauer when a company for which I was working withheld my paycheck. Because he proved to be so understanding and trustworthy, I have retained his services on numerous occasions over the past two years. He has an incredible gift for expaining intricate details of the law and/or circumstance in very basic terms without being condescending. If he personally does not answer the phone, Attorney Bauer returns phone calls as soon as possible - most times during the same day; Jeffry Bauer has NEVER disappointed me. I would HIGHLY recommend this lawyer.

Excellent Commercial Attorney
Mr. Bauer negotiated a very complicated, commercial lease for myself and my partners. His fees were reasonable, and his results were outstanding! I also retained Mr. Bauer to handle a personal business matter. He arranged a fair and acceptable settlement for all parties. His advice was spot on! He was exceptionally professional and knowledgeable regarding this transaction. I will utilize Mr. Bauer exclusively for any future services based on his outstanding responsive service, professionalism, and fair fees for service.
