Amazing Lawyer!
Jeff renewed my faith in the justice system and with lawyers. I hired Jeff after my other lawyer charged me a bunch of money and did nothing. Jeff came highly recommended and he deserves all of the praise. He immediately put me at ease, and clearly cared about me. He always kept me informed about my case and was available 24/7. Jeff saved my reputation, and my job. I will refer him to everyone I know.

The best - all around!
Jeff represented me in DUI charge. He is very personable, in depth and professional. I have dealt with other lawyers and Jeff’s commitment, care and attention blows everyone out of the water. He makes sure you have the full picture of the case, the various outcome possibilities including his recommendations and he genuinely cares. He is the only lawyer I would ever recommend. All the other reviews and endorsements speaks for them selves. Do yourself a favor and consult with him!

Great Lawyer - Good People doing good work
Jeff represented my daughter when she was facing some rather complicated legal issues. He was able to work with the prosecutor and judge and obtained a fair solution. He new when and where to be and who to contact. He listened to all our concerns and was always honest straightforward, always keeping us in the loop. I would hire him again in a heartbeat. He is just good people and he genuinely cares. A lawyer with integrity.

Dui 2nd offense jury trial
Jeff represented me in a DUI jury trial in september of 2009. Jeff is a excellent trial lawyer. I was charged with a 2nd offense DUI, I had also refused the breathalyzer test. I couldn't be happier with the results of my case. The prosecution offered a reckless driving plea bargain prior to trial, which i refused. The case went to trial and the jury returned a verdict of NOT GUILTY after only 17 minutes of deliberations. I would highly recommend Jeff MacNichols to anyone seeking legal representation. If you need the best, call Jeff…

Excellent
Jeffrey MacNichols is one of the best criminal attorneys ever. He always kept me informed or if I had questions he would always return my call that day or early the next business day. Jeff will tell you like it is and will go the extra mile to see if he can find another solution to the court's request.

Client Review
Jeff helped me out on my second DUI. I was facing significant penalties, including a license suspension. He was able to make miracles! Not only did I keep my license, the DUI was dropped! I recommend Jeff to all of my friends who need a lawyer.
