About me

  • Kyrsten Niemiec

    I have known Jeffrey for many, many years now. Throughout that time, I have been continually reminded of what a great lawyer he is. His skills as an attorney are second only to his genuine compassion for and understanding of his clients. Whenever I have a question about Worker's Compensation or Social Security, I go straight to him.
