Divorce/Custody
I hired Jeff a few years ago for my divorce and has been there for me every time I needed him. He has been very helpful with getting my divorce finalized and throughout the last few years I have needed him for other situations that arose and has been great in helping get those issues resolved as well. I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone who needs someone who is knowledgeable and caring as him. Thank you for your continued assistance!

Trusted and Knowledgeable
Mr. Blessinger was our attorney for a guardianship case. He worked closely with our family members, kept us up to date, and worked really well with the other attorney to provide an cohesive transition for the two families. I was comfortable with his performance in court. I trusted his knowledge on family issues. All in all, while court is not usually a good experience, he made it as painless as possible. He is down to earth, honest, and knows his stuff, for lack of a better word.

My experiences with Jef Blessinger
I required a good lawyer for my divorce which had some unusual aspects and gave rise to a conflict of interest for the first lawyer I employed. This required that the case be transferred to a different lawyer and Jeff came along as highly recommended. Jeff immediately grasped the case and was entirely positive as to the outcome in that I would win the claim. The previous lawyer had not been so positive so I was very thankful for the change of lawyer and Jeff proved to be as good as his word providing a case background that persuaded the judge that I was within my rights through the circumstances of the divorce case. In conclusion Jeff Blessinger did an excelllent and would always recommend him to anyone who asked me.

Jeff Blessinger is top-notch.
I am very pleased to have had Jeff Blessinger represent me in my divorce. He treated me with compassion and sensitivity while actively pursuing the best possible outcome for me. Mine was a somewhat complex case made more difficult by the unnecessarily contentious nature of the opposing counsel. Through it all, Jeff remained determined, firm, and professional both in the courtroom and during settlement negotiations. He was knowledgeable and up-to-date on the legal issues affecting my case and was able to quickly and successfully leverage additional resources when and if it became necessary. I was able to count on him to get back to me in a timely manner, which was appreciated during such a stressful time. He was respectful of all my questions and concerns and was always patient to explain my options in easy to understand terms. He gave me the opportunity to play an active role in my case. At the same time, his professional recommendations were ultimately crucial to my good outcome.

You will do well here!
Jeff excelled in all review categories as he handled my divorce. He was quick to understand my situation and he kept my best interest clearly at the fore, even when I waffled. Jeff is direct and forthright, and I felt protected and safe and fully represented during all stages of the process. Jeff's enthusiasm and cheerful nature kept our meetings lively and positive, and he was able to make sense of my mess and lead me to a solid resolution. I am a better person because Jeff worked with me, and I appreciate his professional attention and courtesy and encouragement.

Very Good
Very good overall. Most lawyers are not good when it comes to the invesments part of divorce and Jeff is no different in this respect: i.e. by what means are accounts divided? What is the diffrence between a Roth and a Traditional IRA?, etc. He could brush up on this a bit. Very trustworthy and he knows his way around the legal system for sure.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"There are a lot of divorce lawyers out there, it can be hard to choose. When it comes down to it, in a divorce you will probably be an emotional wreck. You need a lawyer who is a truly decent human being, but also has the knowledge and experience to get the best outcome under the circumstances. Jeff is that lawyer."
