I found myself facing disability discrimination and had to search for someone to represent me. From the moment I got off the phone with Jeff Rager I knew that he was the one I needed to represent me. His level of expertise was immediately evident, and he knew the laws that impacted my case inside and out. He was patient and generous with his time willing to answer my questions, over and over, if he needed to. He was direct and honest about everything even when it could be anxiety producing. His support was unwavering. Mr. Rager was always prepared and his negotiating skills were outstanding. He was strong and not to be pushed over. He knew what my case deserved and in spite of early offers to settle, he stood firmly for what he felt I deserved given everything that had been taken from me and my family. Ultimately the decisions he made and all his hard work on my behalf paid off. He succeeded and he won my case.
It has taken me a long time to put this down on paper, because each time I sat down to write it, it never seemed to do him justice. I could not have done this without him. I highly recommend him and can never thank him enough for everything. If you need an outstanding lawyer, he is the one.

I was referred to the Rager Law firm and I can honestly say choosing Mr. Rager to represent me was life changing. No one ever thinks they will be in a position to need this kind of representation. I was a successful nurse for over 30 years proudly serving my own community when I was targeted because I was advocating for my patients. Mr. Rager fought tirelessly on my behalf and brought my case to a successful resolution. I would highly recommend him not only for his professionalism but also his compassion. The communication to me from him and his office staff was timely and I felt very involved in every step from beginning to settlement. Thank you Mr. Rager for your time and effort.

I was an employee of a MAJOR Hotel terminated after almost 20 years of service I didnt understand why,so I decided to comtact an Attorney after reviewing many attorneys over a 2 week period I came across Mr.Rager so I called.Right from the start I was made to feel like my case mattered during my consultation they gathered my information and I was told they would review it and get back to me . Upon reading a few of Mr Ragers reviews a few past clients went on to say if you are lucky he will take you case, so I sat back and waited hoping to hear from him because just talking over the phone I knew if he would represent me he was the one I wanted on my side, he was very up front honest and caring which made me comfortable. He told me he would take my case and it may be a long haul but he will be by my side through it all, he never ever made me feel my case didnt matter ,and by my side he stayed we went through depos and mediation he never let the Hotels attorneys get out of hand , he made 1 of the hardest times of my life a lot easier. He always kept me up to date and made sure I understood exactly what was going on, at no time did I have any dobuts in Mr Rager win or lose . He is a very honest and caring attorney and hands down a winner in my book. He had the confidence in me even when i was filled with dobut about myself. .He was readily available if I ever had a question no matter how big or small amazing and I am blessed that he is on my side. Thank you Mr.Rager for your hard work and your total dedication to me as a client I know you were the right choice by far..
