Worth every penny
Jake was recommended to me and I could not have been more pleased. He really helped me with my case, even staying up late into the night to get the information needed and the job done, something he could have put off till the next day. Jake and his team really care about their clients.

Outstanding Divorce Lawyer
Being married for many years as a stay at home mother to our children, I was dealing with a spouse who had just sold our home then informed me he wanted a divorce, was hiding money, was being unfaithful, was being dishonest about his income, and was transferring all of our assets into other peoples' names. In a time when my world was completely falling apart, Jake Graff was there to help me endure one of the hardest times in my life. I really looked into having a lawyer that was the right fit for me and had several consultations for this reason. I remember sitting down for a consultation with Jake as he had been a referral from a friend. I was emotional and distraught about what was happening in my life, and Jake was so considerate and kind to what I was feeling and going through. He took the time to really listen and offer direction in what I could do legally. I instantly knew that I was in good hands with a person who not only was professional and knew his stuff, but a person who had high standards and would advocate me in the most ethical way. I felt that he really believed in my case and I was reassured that he was there to support my cause by taking care of the legal things that I had no clue about. It was a relief! He made is so much more bearable. Throughout the process, Jake made sure that I was informed as to what was happening step by step and explained things in great detail along the way. He was very thorough, spent much time studying my case so that he would know it for himself, and was fully prepared for each court hearing. I was impressed with the tiniest, little details that he remembered not only about my personal life, but about each of my children as well. He was personal, respectful, and compassionate towards what was happening and advocated for me beyond my expectations. He answered each call and email in a timely manner and always made sure he kept in contact with me when something arose. One of the things I appreciated the most was the way that he allowed me to make the final decisions. He would lay out my options and gave great advice but encouraged me to make the final decisions I felt the most comfortable with. I knew Jake was there to protect me, but he also made it a team effort and helped me build confidence in myself which I needed for my new reality. One of the things that stands out in my mind is his desire to be honest not only with me, but in court as well. Before each court hearing, Jake reminded me to just be honest and to be myself whenever I was to take place on the stand. I find this admirable and I felt honored to have a lawyer who upholds such values not only for himself but for the people he represents as well. Jake literally carried me through the most difficult time in my life and I am most thankful. I was pleased with his efforts because my case was not easy by any means. He handled it like a champ and remained calm and collected. I highly, highly recommend Jake Graff to be your lawyer!

I couldn’t have asked for better representation
During the most trying experience in my life I came across Jake Graff with BFG law firm and I know without a doubt I wouldn’t have made it out of this without him. Every phone call, email, and in person meeting was answered immediately and with the most level headed answers. Every court appearance, meadiation, and conference we attended Jake was there and prepared and had me prepared. His creative counsel and knowledge of the law far exceeded my expectations and got the result that was best for my family and myself. His paralegal Danay was also amazing and If I needed anything even just someone to talk me down and let me cry or vent both were there in a matter of minutes. Not only did he get me the best result possible with my divorce he also gave me peace of mind and comfort in a very emotional, scary, and chaotic situation.

Real Estate Deposit Recovery
I want to take a moment to pass along a genuine thank you for the work you and your firm put into our case. From the moment you returned my call on a Saturday afternoon to the deposit refund as the conclusion to our soured real estate transaction, I felt that we were the only client on the firm's rolls. From the moment I got off the initial call with you, I was confident the deposit would be returned and I was only afforded further confidence as time progressed. It's my perspective this outcome was the result of you, and the firm, taking an aggressive, unified stance toward the seller and title company. The letter, the draft complaint, the joint efforts between you and Bill and the consistent communication with us made this otherwise unpleasant situation tolerable.

Outstanding!
I have nothing but GOOD to say about Jake Graff. My divorce was a long, drawn out and at most times frustrating ordeal, but Jake helped me stay positive and have confidence through it all. He was very sensitive to the fact that it was an abuse case and understood what I was going through. He was constantly asking me if I was ok and if certain situations, such as mediation were going to be ok with me and what needed to happen to make me comfortable. He was extremely professional and welcoming. He would educate me if I wasn't sure what a word meant or what the process was. He was extremely thorough and kept on top of things. The other party involved would drag their feet and cause delays, but Jake was very good about checking in with them to see what the status was and what needed to happen next. My divorce would have taken so much longer without him. Jake was the best advocate for me and I have and will continue to recommend him to anyone who needs an amazing attorney.

Jake Graff Is The Best
When I first called to schedule an appointment for a consultation, his secretary put me right on the phone with him. Jake spoke with me for about a half hour. He asked what I was dealing with and he gave me many options as to how I could proceed...giving me time to think about it before my actual consultation. Jake made me feel that I had someone who what battle for me if it came to it but would ultimately let me proceed with my divorce in the way I wanted. I had called a few other places and it just didn't feel right. When Jake was referred to me by a friend with her beaming remarks, I felt better. After I spoke with Jake the first time, I was sure I had the right lawyer. Divorce is horrible and I did not want it - but my former husband was set on it and Jake was considerate of my tender feelings and treated me with respect and gave me encouragement as well. I didn't have to worry that I was a woman being represented by a man - Jake was like a brother sticking up for a sister and that is exactly what I needed. Not only was Jake considerate of feelings but he explained the process and listened well- answering all of my questions. Jake knows what he is doing and knew how to handle every situation that came up- including my former husband's lawyer. Jake made the most grueling time in my life endurable because I was confident in his ability to take care of the business of my case. He kept in contact with me and communicated well so I was aware of any situation that came up. He gave excellent advice but let me have the final say. Lawyers get a bad reputation, but Jake did not fit those stereotypes. He is honest and truly represents his client's best interest. His office staff is also incredible. I am grateful I found Jake and will continue to recommend him to anyone in need of a well qualified lawyer.

Excellent Attorney
In my experience being represented by Jake, he was very informative, quick to respond to questions and overall friendly and easy to communicate with. I felt he was able to not only give the best advice on the chain of events he would recommend, but also easily made adjustments to fit my financial limitations. I felt he was fair and objective. He was always first to suggest the fastest least expensive way to work my case, but also warned me of possible pit falls along the way and helped my wife and I be best represented at the best value. I do believe he always had our best interest at heart. In court he was phenomenal, making quick adjustments on the fly to obtain the optimal outcome in our court proceedings. I would highly recommend Jake if you are looking for a straight forward, honest attorney with a well gauged moral compass that doesn't take short cuts. He showed compassion when necessary and was aggressive in handling my case from beginning to end. He has a healthy knowledge of both Utah and Nevada state law as it pertained to my case and was quick on his feet and comfortable and respectful of all involved when in the court room. Although he appears to be very young, he in every way, comes off as an intelligent seasoned attorney. As far as I'm concerned Jake reunited my family and more or less saved my daughters life; and for that I will always be indebted to him.

Could not have had a better experience
Jake Graff served as my divorce lawyer for a case that was quite complicated given that my ex-wife and I are two different nationalities, live in separate states, have an international history, and have a daughter who we both love deeply. Jake was able to swiftly draw up a divorce agreement that could be mutually agreed upon by both parties and which specifically met all the needs of his client (me). I will also note that his fees were always very reasonable and although I have had poor experiences with lawyers in the past, charging for services they did not complete, Jake had changed my mind about the possibilities for ethical and reasonably priced law counsel. The correspondences on his end were always quick and coherent and he flexibly adapted to my busy work and travel schedule, which included frequent trips out of the state and country. Thanks Jake, for all your help. I will be sure to recommend you and your firm to friends and family in the future.

Highest recommendation for Kenneth Jake Graff
Kenneth Jake Graff handled a divorce settlement for me. My ex spouse tried two different lawyers both of whom Mr Graff ran circles around. His followup with the other lawyers and the judge's office kept the process moving when the other guys seemed to be slowing intentionally. He helped me to avoid many pitfalls and represented what I wanted in all the documents in addition to the wise language he suggested. He knows the people in the system as well as how the system works. His advice and knowledge made for smoothest possible divorce process and the legal protection of myself and my children. I give my highest recommendation for Kenneth Jake Graff!

Jake is Absolutely Amazing
Jake helped our family win the lottery. We went from a knock-down, drag-out custody battle to my wife adopting my two kids from a previous marriage. Jake kept our kids' best interests at heart and went above and beyond his duty for us. We will never forget him. We will always be grateful.
