Jeff fought a complex 2 year legal battle with me. He out-strategized the opponent and got me into a very favorable advantage. I was able to come out on top. He wisely saved me from making mistakes along the way. Jeff was always there to answer my questions or emails. He flew out to help me last minute twice. I recommend him without any reservations for any legal need.

Let me start off by saying, I spoke with probably 50 plus attorneys/paralegals. I'm not exaggerating either. As soon as Mr. King returned my call I liked how he approached our situation. He's obviously the type of defender that cares about his clients. Not the type that doesn't look at your file 30 min prior to the hearing. Unfortunately we weren't able to retain him for our own personal reasons but I will definitely be referring him to anyone that needs help.

Excellent service and excellent attorney, I hired Jeff King after an intense search. My husband had been accused of a sexual assault and the case had many unusual twists involved. Before deciding to go with Jeff I had met with many other local attorneys of which I felt were reputable, but that my case was just going to handed off to a lower newer, less experienced lawyer that would work and do the case ( as in subcontracted out ). Jeff gave us the feeling he was able, experienced, and ready to fight for my husband. I like his military background and ethics I am sure if I had not went with Jeff the outcome could have been very different . Needless to say we got the NOT GUILTY verdict and I am not so sure it would have turned out that way would we have used someone else or even the public defender. Lawyers have their fees and sometimes you have to sacrifice but what's the alternative, maybe being put away for 10-20 years for something you don't deserve? I know if I ever need him again I won't hesitate to call, or recommend him to anyone. I have never written a review before for anyone but I am just so pleased with Jeff on everything he did and all the hard work he did to defend my husband. He never let my husband take a plea like a lot of lawyers would want you to to make their jobs easier, he fought until the end. He was not only our lawyer but our counselor when things were scary for us. He guided us and helped us get through everything! We will forever be grateful and amazed with his services . Our case took place here in Dallas, Texas but I believe he serves all of Texas? Thank you Very Very Much Jeff. We are forever grateful for you!!!

Jeff King and I have worked in the military defense community for nearly a decade now and you will be hard-pressed to find an advocate who will work harder, smarter, and more passionately than Mr. King. He truly cares for his clients and it shows in his work. I wholeheartedly endorse Mr. King's professionalism, ethics, and fair but hard-hitting approach. He's one of the good guys!
