Jens represented me and my agency in a civil matter. He took the time to review the materials related to the incident and was well versed in the incident prior to our first meeting. He took the time to explain matters to me so that I could be better prepaired for my part.
Jens was prompt to return phone calls and emails, which helped keep me up to date as to the status of our involvement in the incident.
I felt that he truly cared about us as clients and was willing to take the time to do the best job possible.

Jens is very knowledgeable and effectively communicates with our organization. I appreciate that he is willing to actually rate/advise win/loss percentage based on the merits of the case.
Many lawyers simply give a 50%/50% on vertually every matter.
Jens pays attention to the cost of litigation and works diligently to hold costs down, while not sacrificing effective defense of a lawsuit.
I would recommend Jens and have to my friends and colleages.

Jens has good litigation skills and instincts. He represents his clients agressively but is sensitive to costs. He does an excellent job of keeping clients informed. I would highly recommend Jens.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
Jens is an excellent attorney and advisor. While his litigation skills are well known, having worked with him on matters and followed his career I know his judgment and professionalism are as effective in the boardroom as they are in the courtroom. I highly recommend Jens Schmidt.
