Thanks Jeff!
I hired Jeff in 2003 to handle my divorce. I never needed a lawyer in the past and I was concerned about finding an attorney who was knowledgeable, but also compassionate. A divorce is overwhelming so having the added concern of finding and hiring the right lawyer is definitely an added stress. Jeff was recommended to me by a friend who said great things about Jeff after her divorce. Jeff was a blessing. I had such a peace of mind and I felt safe for the first time in a very long time. His attention to detail was amazing as it pertained to my legal matters. He was an advocate for me as a person and never left me wondering what was happening. I could not have wished for a better lawyer. I am forever grateful he was in my corner! Thanks again Jeff, hopes this helps other people get the same results I did.
