Personal Injury Case
From the first time that we met with Jeff we felt that he was knowledgeable and professional. He was straight forward about letting us know that he wouldn't waste his time or our time if we didn't have a case. Throughout the entire procedure, both in depositions and in court, he was prepared and presented our case and us well. We found him to be honest, fair and considerate of us and the defendants. We would definitely recommend Jeff.

Compassionate Pro
If you need a PI lawyer there's been bad news in your life. And while money does not make everything better, a lawyer who empathizes with your pain and works tirelessly to achieve a semblance of justice goes a long way in making things better. As an additional note/plus, in our case, the victim he helped was a teenager ... he was amazing with our son ... there's a lot for the victim to do in these cases and he helped our son every step of the way. You won't go wrong here.

Employment law case
Jeff and Grady did a fantastic job. Extremely knowledgeable and caring. They wanted the best for the client (me) and had the track record and approach to back it up with a thoughtful plan and executed it flawlessly. Yes, I would recommend and hire again very strongly.

Great Lawyer Great Law Firm
Jeff did a great job on my case. He is an all around nice caring person. I would highly recommend he and his firm to anyone who needs assistance in his specialized fields of practice. He fought a very large corporation on my behalf and we won!

Excellent Employment Issue Representation
My husband (and I) were very grateful to have been referred to Jeff Hepworth and Grady Hepworth for assistance with an employment contract/wrongful termination issue. Both were very personable and highly responsive to us, and each provided excellent review and recommendations on bringing the issue to positive resolution. Their knowledge, expertise and approach were just what we needed, and we appreciated their guidance and great attitude throughout the process. We highly recommend them both!

Fantastic labor attorney
When I faced a wrongful termination, I was lucky enough to find Jeff Hepworth. He and his partner evaluated my case, explained all of the legal aspects, and helped me plan the strategy which led to a quick settlement that was above my expectations. Above all else, Jeff was a pleasure to interact with and was always extremely responsive. Unlike many lawyers, he picked up the phone when I called and always returned emails promptly. I give Jeff the highest recommendation.
