Wealth of legal information
I have consulted with attorney Jeffrey Gwynn on many occasions in regards to possible bankruptcy matters and he is a wealth of information. He not only knows the law well, but also provided me with legal research to help me understand the law on the issues. I have never hired Mr. Gwynn, but have consulted him on his advice on many occasions.

Personal Injury
I was walking down the street and fell and broke my ankle on the uneven city sidewalk. Mr. Gwynn handled my case with professionalism and concern. His guidance through the dispositions was most helpful. I would recommend Mr. Gwynn to someone seeking professional counsel and representation.

Bankruptcy Attorney
My wife and I had to file bankruptcy in 2010. Due to the downturn in the economy we lost a couple of businesses and were left with a load of debt. Jeff and his staff helped us continually throughout the bankruptcy by answering our many questions and helping us understand and complete the bankruptcy questionnaire. It was an awful period in our lives, but Jeff and his staff made the whole bankruptcy process easier. I highly recommend him to anyone considering bankruptcy.

To be an effective attorney you need both a strong comprehension of the law and the know-how to make it work to your clients' advantage. Jeff has both, and in the many years I have known and worked with him, he has consistently used these skills to achieve excellent outcomes for his clients.

A Hard Working and Caring Attorney
Jeff helped me through a tough lawsuit and each step of the way he was working hard for me and I could tell that he cared about the eventual result. I highly recommend him. He is not only hard working and caring, but a man of character.

An Attorney With a Heart and Wisdom
Jeffrey Gwynn and his staff are an amazing mix, nobody likes going to court and having a staff and an attorney who has a heart and is not just after making money is hard to find these days. He is well educated, he knows the laws inside and out and is very well diverse in many areas of the law. If you need to ever call me or email me, I stand by my words and opinion and will tell you, just go and meet with him and you will know what I mean.

Highly recommend
Jeff handled one case for me (hopefully I don't have anymore). He was very honest, and always presented my options clearly. He was very easy to contact when I had questions, and kept me informed at all times. I will definitely use Jeff in the future if needed.I highly recommended Jeffrey Gwynn.

Civil Suit Defense vs Pacific Heights Clone
Just concluded a civil suit defense for us. Case was so well prepared that the malignant malcontent suing us folded up like a tent on the date of trial assignment, and took $10k settlement on his $1.1 million suit. After the mediator and his newly hired new attorney reviewed what Jeff had lined up and detailed, he finally woke up and smelled the coffee. Jeff seemed to know exactly the right moves to make all through this ordeal. Great strategic ability.

Jeff is the remedy for what ails you when it comes to any legal matter.
We were slapped with a lawsuit. Not totally out of the blue, but a lawsuit for which we had no experience in dealing with. The suit happened so suddenly that we had to "Lawyer Up" quickly. Of course we got the wrong one at first. We didn't know any better until we starting showing up in court and he couldn't answer case specifics on our behalf. He showed up in the courtroom with a tie that had the 3 little pigs on it. That forced us to look for someone else. The second try was a little better; he was connected with other attorneys and a former judge in the bankruptcy court. But he still was lacking in caring, and knowledge of our specific case when in court. My wife and I were embarrassed and had put 2 retainers in the hands of people we could not trust, but we needed someone to care. We started interviewing new prospective lawyers. Now that we had all of these experiences, and we knew how other lawyers were performing in the courtroom. We went on the internet and found a beautiful website www.gwynn-law.com. Very professional with tons of information that we could see before we went for our free consultation. When we walked into his office, we instantly recognized our fellow Catholic parishioner. We had noticed Jeff and his family in our church every Sunday. Immediately we connected. We first started talking about our families and our church. He then asked us the specifics of our case. We went into great detail to get him up to speed. He was also able to log in to the court and find the case to review what stage it was in. We knew right then, this family man, with his Catholic values, was going to be there for us. Jeff did not disappoint. The way he handled his advice, comforted us. He was very honest with each and every aspect of the case. What we had going for us and what we had to overcome. His steadfast fight for our case was impressive. He promptly handled all the paperwork. All on time and correct the first time. His invoices came every month showing our balance. He called each time anything came across his desk for our case. It was a completely different lawsuit in our minds from the time we handed it over to Jeff. We were still nervous. He advised us that this case was more than likely not going to go our way. That never stopped him from pursuing other options and strategies trying to overcome all the obstacles we had in front of us. In the end of the case, Jeff had shown caring and compassion above and beyond our expectations. I am very proud to tell anyone who is looking for an attorney, Jeff is your man. He is so honest and trustworthy. When he knows you need more expert advice in an area that he does not specialize in, he knows a reputable lawyer he will refer you to. Those lawyers are a very select group. Anyone who needs legal advice and representation, Jeff Gwynn is that lawyer.
