This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Free 15-Minute Consultation - THANKS
I initially spoke with one of their intake specialists, Becky for a legal issue I had with an abusive landlord. Becky handled my call with the utmost understanding and compassion. After taking down the pertinent details of my case, she scheduled me a free consultation with one of the Tobener-Ravenscroft attorneys, Tina. Tina provided valuable information about some of rights and potential roads towards various forms of remedy (possibly through filing a lawsuit). Ultimately because I'm located in southern California, I chose to investigate other lawfirms besides Tobener-Ravenscroft, but I wouldn't hesitate to refer someone to this excellent firm for a consultation.

Excellent and Talented Attorney
Jacqueline Ravenscroft is an exceptional advocate for her clients. She is an exceptional litigator especially at depositions and argument at court hearings, superb published legal writer, wonderful tactitian and routinely generates outstanding results for her clients. She also really cares about her clients and you couldn't ask for a more engaging attorney to represent you. She is my first choice for landlord tenant matters and you are lucky if she takes your case.
