Absolutely awesome!
Jeff not only researched my personal information, he provided me with pertinent actions to take prior to appearing in court. At my court date, Jeff was prompt, friendly, and very knowledgeable. He conducted himself professionally, and he displayed a great rapport with law enforcement, the prosecutor, and the judge. When there was a snafu with my records, Jeff remained professional, and used the situation to better my outcome. I am beyond appreciative and grateful that I was referred to Jeff, and I will definitely refer others to him, if needed.

He is worth every penny.
As a mother, I feel as if Jeff defended my son as if it was his son before a judge. I couldn't have been more pleased! I am grateful for his perseverance. He kept me informed, returned my calls and texts and never made me feel I was burdening him. Do not hesitate to hire this lawyer, no regrets! Not over-priced and kept his original fee.

Thank you Jeffrey for the legal representation you provided me. You explained to me everything i needed to know on the case from day one. The times we talked i was very comfortableand confident that you would take care of me. And i was right that day of the trial I was shocked on the outcome of the case. I am very, very great full for your help. Thank You!

"........on all four counts, we find the defendant not guilty...."
I'm a convicted felon and was looking at some very serious charges. Jeff, was actually the second attorney retained on my matter. After nearly three years (on bond) of waiting, I was finally afforded my day in court. Jeff had diligently prepared, and had done extensive leg work to decipher through the fabricated allegations. Upon implementing my strategic defense, against 4 counts of class X Felonies; (I was facing a minimum of 24 years of prison time) the jury had rendered a verdict of not guilty on all counts. Hey Jeff, thanks again!!!!!!!!

Can honestly say Jeff is one of the best attorneys I have come across in Chicago. He did exactly what he said would do when he said he would do it. I would trust Jeff completely....he did not sugar coat anything and always had our best interest at heart.

Nothing short of a miracle worker.
I shopped around a while before I called Jeff. We had a brief 5 min conversation where he asked for my information. He looked into both my cases and called me back the next day. He had contacted both state attorneys and made two AWSOME deals. All before meeting with me or even talking about money. And he did it all within 24 hours. I contacted numerous attorneys before him. None of which even offered me meeting within the week I called them. And those that I did meet wanted the full amount to even look into the cases. Also both my cases were in different counties. He had contacts in both counties. My life is back on track. Thank you Jeff. Also very reasonably priced. And u can tell that he genuinely cares about his clients and our well being. As a father of 2 I highly reccomend Jeff to you back home.
