Professional firm
Jeff Brei quickly grasped our legal issues, recommended a course of action, and proceeded to put that plan into effect. When the other side realized that they were dealing with a firm that had a specialty in real estate, they withdrew their complaint. Case closed.

Best lawyer in Tucson, AZ
I highly recommend Jeff Brei and his law office. I hired him when I had problems with the property management company that managed my rental property. He reviewed my case within a few hours, discussed the issues with me and suggested a course of action. When I mentioned that I thought the property manager wasn’t taking me seriously, he contacted the property manager himself and took care of everything immediately. All the problems with the property management company were resolved and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Jeff is the best lawyer in Tucson. His office assistants are very friendly, helpful and respond to questions in record time.

professional, knowledgable, respectful, efficient, down to earth, easy to communicate with
I highly recommend Jeff Brei and his office. In one hour he was able to review all my paperwork, come up with a recommendation on how to proceed with my legal issue. He was very extremely efficient with my time, very professional, direct, respectful of my difficulties and listened carefully before making any judgements. Together we came up with a solution that saved me over $13,000. And we didn't have to go to court. His office assistants were very pleasant and did all the paperwork in record time. I couldn't be more happy with the outcome of my legal problem.

Mr. Mason
Jeff has been my lawyer for 15 years now and through thick and thin he's stuck by me and I've stuck with him. I'm probably his most unique client and ask him for a lot. I feel Jeff and his team go out of the way to make you feel taken care of. They are honest and professional and charge at fair rates. I live in Gilbert and travel to Tucson just to use Jeff.

Best of the Best
I'm an attorney with an open consulting arrangement with Jeff. This means that I hire Jeff whenever I have questions regarding real estate or business transactions or litigation. In this manner, I've hired Jeff on numerous occasions and he's assisted me with a wide variety of different issues. Jeff is extremely bright and he has a superhuman work ethic. He is made of steel. If you are an attorney reading this and Jeff has just appeared in your case, know that he will be at least one step ahead of you at all times.

I’d offer 100 stars if I could.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude and complete satisfaction with the services by Brei Law Firm. From the initial phone call, Ramona was wonderful. I would recommend Mr. Brei, as he is always easily reached, and responsive. Mr. Brei is very informative, and professional in every regard. They made our unfortunate situation easier to manage with their full attention and accurate guidance during this process. Thank you again for your excellent legal service.

Successful Engagement
I’ve worked with many litigation attorneys professionally, but thankfully have had limited need for a litigation firm personally. However, when the need arose due to a property boundary dispute and a neighbor violating our property rights, we engaged Jeff Brei. His advice and explanation of AZ statutes enabled us to resolve the issue primarily by ourselves, in our favor and without litigation. That’s a home run in such matters. Mr. Brei is very knowledgeable, experienced and professional. While we avoided court, we have no doubt Mr. Brei would have been an aggressive litigator and we would have felt quite confident with him on our side.

Brei Law Firm Is Excellent
The Brei Law Firm is excellent. We utilized them for our upcoming home purchase in Marana, AZ. Jeff Brei provided prompt, courteous and professional legal service. His legal assistant, Ramona, was a delight to work with. We currently live in CA and they treated us like long-term Tucson residents.

New home troubles
While building our new home, our builders made some drastic mistakes. We knew we needed a lawyer to give us guidance and our realtor suggested Jeff. We are happy she did. He answered our questions and alleviated our concerns. Jeff really listens to his clients and is knowledgable about the process of home building. He will go the extra mile to give you peace of mind!

Very satisfied with Mr. Brei
My company hired Mr. Brei to assist with a commercial lease dispute. He came recommended by other attorneys we work with. Mr. Brei answered all of our initial questions and then assisted in facilitating resolution to the matter. He was extremely hands on, knowledgeable and cost effective. We intend to use his services again.
