My review on Jeff Jared and Staff
I want to thank Attorney Jeff Jared and his staff for all the hard work, and how hard they fought to resolve our case. They kept us together with our grandchildren the whole time, winning the adoption. They have been compassionate and professional every step of the way. We truly appreciate Jeff and his staff's expertise and can't thank them enough. I highly recommend this firm to anyone that is looking for the best attorney.

very impressed
I contacted Jeff Jared early in my custody petition. I didn't understand alot then. My emotions took over and ended up terminating the contract. I was represented by 6 lawyers over 2 years. JEFF, was literally the ONLY attorney who really genuinely cared and advocated correctly. Himself and Michelle are a SMART duo i highly recommend them. JEFF uses his common sense, compassion, and experience to navigate your case individually. He really listens and knows the law. He makes sure to only pursue a path that you are comfortable with, as well as fully educating you with all options available. Jeff Jared's firm is concerned for the overall wellbeing on top of the justice their clients deserve.

Jeff Jared Won a Settlement With Our Lousy Lender!
We had a complicated mortgage dispute with our lender spanning several years. It took a financial and mental toll on our lives. We hired Jeff Jared to represent us. We immediately felt protected and confident that the lender was not going to run rough shod over us! There were many parts to our situation, and Jeff was on top of all legal dates, deadlines, pleadings, and did not allow the lender to do whatever they wanted. His paralegal Michelle was amazing. She did important research, and also communicated with the opposing parties in a way that got them to be more amenable to us during negotiations. Jeff & Michelle laid out several options that we hadn't really considered. We gained clarity, and the strategy to finally exit this burden. Within several months of hiring Jeff, we won a settlement, which we regard in many ways as a straight out win. Michelle is empathetic with clients, and also armed with extensive knowledge and experience. Jeff is a brilliant and realistic attorney. Jeff and Michelle will execute the best strategy for you. I highly recommend this law firm to anyone seeking representation in any of their practice areas.

Jeff Jared is an excellent attorney
Jeff Jared has represented me as my divorce attorney for the past 14 months. Mr. Jared and his staff have gone above and beyond in representing me through a very contentious divorce case. I would highly recommend Jeff Jared to anyone for their attorney needs.

Outstanding DWI Attorney
This was the first time I've EVER been in trouble with the law and was just sick over my getting a DWI. Mr Jared not only walked me through every step of the process, but he was kind, sympathetic and professional. He let me know that I made a mistake and didn't judge me.... He knows the law (20+ years), and as a matter of fact given the circumstances, Mr Jared was able to plead me to a much lesser charge enabling me to move forward with my life and put this all behind me. I know everyone's circumstances are different but he was a blessing!

Jeff is a great attorney!
Most of the work was done by Michelle Jeff's wife. They worked with me and my wife to safe our home from wrongful foreclosure. Bayview Loan Servicing was lovingly corrected by Michelle and Jeff. The banks are crooks! But I also knew how defend myself and my family. Jeff and Michelle pulled it off for my family!

Amazing Results
I am extremely happy with the results that I recieved! Michele and Jeff got me into mediation with my bank, and are representing me in mediation. Michele really holds the mediator and the bank accountable. They are by far the best law office I have ever worked with. I went thru mediation before and this time around I am not stressed out because I know that Michele and Jeff have my best interest in mind and are willing to fight for me! Love them both! As of now they have been able to get me a TPP (Temporary Payment Plan) that will lead to a modification. I am so happy that I get to keep my house!!

Mr Jared helped save my house
Jeff gave me great service and got a modification better terms than I expected When I got the notice of default it was scary, that is when I called Mr. Jared. Jeff talked me through the options and dealt effectively with the mortgage company, all the while he communicated with me keeping me informed. Within a quick period of time we manged to get a great offer, and for that I am very thankful. I recommend Jeff Jared whole heartily for legal help.

Sharp, Extremely Knowledgable, and Very Conscientious
With such incredible whirlwind speed, Jeff jumped in and protected us from the start. I like how he summarized what our options were and how he advised us to take the best course in avoiding unnecessary litigation. His experience and skills worked. He is also very affordable, and therefore I absolutely recommend him based on the fact I received the best counsel for what potentially could have been an expensive and drawn out ordeal.

In my opinion, Jeff Jared is the best attorney in Kirkland! He is insightful, professional, passionate and truly cares about his clients. When I came to Mr. Jared, I was extremely stressed out about my situation. He was able to listen to my issues and provide a road map to get me thru a very difficult time. If you need a professional and a friend on your side. Hire Jeff Jared. He fights for his clients. Thank you Jeff!
