Thank you Wittenberg Law for job well done!
I hired Jeffrey for one of our real estate transactions. Jeffrey was creative, professional, and trustworthy. I've paid a lot more for other attorneys and got a lot less in return. I highly recommend Jeffrey. I will be using him on all of my future deals.

Business Breach of Contract (friends)
The one thing I most admire about Jeffrey, is that he was always available to speak to me regardless of time of day. One time I called him on a Saturday night at 10:00 pm regarding my case, he was actually out-of-town and still spent time on the phone with me reassuring me that everything was going to work out. At that moment I knew I had made the right choice in hiring Jeffrey for his services. As far as trustworthy, you won't find anyone better! By the way, I won the case....Great work Jeffrey! Thank you, Eric

Wittenberg Law is highly recommended
As someone who used to work with Jeff in the Securitization industry, I can attest to his thorough, detail-oriented approach to practicing law. His extensive and varied experience throughout his career in finance and law makes him an excellent choice as a litigator. His resume is not only impressive in its breadth but on a practical level allows him to pursue your case from multiple angles; you can count on him to efficiently and thoughtfully represent you, and to display the same determination that made me appreciate his work ethic. He is undoubtedly the best attorney that I collaborated with in Structured Finance and given the opportunity I would be glad to work with him again in the future. Jeff's ability to explain complex legal concepts benefited me greatly in my career, so I know he is patient and conscientious. Not every attorney takes the initiative to be the founder of a new law firm - let him apply that same approach to your case!

Quality
The best experience I have had with a lawyer. He took the time to understand my personal situation then presented my case in the best way. I won for less money then I expected to pay. Jeff is a real pro!

Jeffrey Wittenberg at Wittenberg Law took my money and run!
Jeffery was very nice and seemed to be very knowledgeable BEFORE HE GOT the Money. ONCE he got the money the attitude changed 100%. Not only he was not on my side anymore but he was not showing any enthusiasm on my case with SEC. I felt like I paid him for being on SEC side not me. When I asked him for advise he didn't give out a word and asked for MONEY which is reasonable. When he got the money, he said he is not going to tell me what steps is better to be taken or not. I was very surprised because I think this is what lawyers are for. So, I canceled his service and he refused to refund my money. Basically, I sent him $2000 and he refunded $1000 of it. He never gave me 1 word of advise and refused to give me what to do at all even after not refunding the money!!!

Response from Jeffrey Wittenberg November 12, 2013
The author of this review has chosen to remain anonymous. Perhaps it was written by a disgruntled adversary, or maybe even a securities fraudster who is attempting to keep victims of securities fraud and other abuse from hiring a truly gifted securities lawyer. It seems that AVVO will allow anyone to write anything on their website. Don't fall for the anonymous author's ruse. If your are in need of intelligent and experienced securities counsel, call Jeffrey Wittenberg and learn for yourself.
