Excellent direction.
I had questions about some issues I was having with my work place and Jorge was able to give me consultation, provide me Basic information and direct me to someone who had more information to help me. I enjoyed how ready he was to help and his ability to understand what I was wanting to know when I had no direction myself.

One of kind attorney
As you would only see in the movies, but never happened to find a lawyer like that in real life. I've had a few attorneys in my life but never like Mr. Jaramillo, he pays very good attention to evey detail the other attorney says, when its Mr. Jaramillo turn to talk, it what you always wanted a lawyer to say and how he says it. Very smart man, he will go through all your evidence and work hard to win. Always on top of everything, will make sure everything is all good after your case is over. I had to let go of my attorney and hired Mr. Jaramillo two weeks before my trial and did an excellent job even though my other attorney didn't give my evidence back, and only used what the plattive had. A+++

Attorney Jorge Jaramillo was well prepared at all times, and always returned our calls. He even went as far as meeting with our family on a Sunday because we were not able to meet with him during the week. Jorge also allowed us to make monthly payments, and at the end of our suit Jorge told us not to worry about the last monthly payment.

Not horrible but not great
I hired Mr. Jaramillo to represent me in a family law case. Upon hiring him, we didn’t speak for months, I found other representation and chose to fire Mr.Jaramillo. After rescheduling our meeting twice, we were finally able to sit down and go over my refund, since no work had been done. He charged me for paper work but has still yet to provide copies to me. I emailed Mr. jaramillo on March 9th terminating our contract, I just received my full refund May 23, and still no proof of any work being done on my behalf and only excuses when asking for copies of work he is billing for.
