Car injury/ accident
We had an accident that we were not at fault but our insurance had lapsed for the first time. We were terrified that no one could help us. After talking to a friend, she highly recommend Jeffery Caffee and his network of professionals. The whole process was extremely smooth. He set everything up so we did not have to worry. Our claim was satisfied in about half the time I heard claims can take. The biggest thing he did that was a game changer was when the other parties insurance did not claim responsibility, he made a call and 24 hours later they changed their findings and accepted responsibility.

Simply amazing! Best Attorney out there!! A++
I was in a near fatal motorcycle accident in Aug. 2017. I had 1 attorney decide he didn't want to fight for me so I found Jeffrey online and I am glad I did! He fought hard for me and after months of the other insureds insurance fighting us on who's at fault, their driver finally admitted negligence and speeding and Jeffrey was able to win my case and get me a settlement! He also helped by getting the VA to negotiate on what they wanted for reimbursement for medical care costs they paid out for me. He is hard working, dedicated and quick to respond whether by phone or email. He goes above and beyond to help his clients and as a Disabled Veteran, I highly recommend him for any case you may have with the Veterans Affairs too. He will work hard for you and he will do what it takes to fight for you! I hope to never need him again, but if I do, I will certainly be happy to have him as my Attorney. I highly recommend him to anyone no matter how big or small your case may be. No matter if you think you don't have a case at all, contact him before giving up. I did. Thank you Jeffrey for all your help and getting me a successful outcome on my case. You are amazing!

Highly Recommended!
I had an injury involving a car accident. Jeff Caffee did a fantastic job on my case. He worked hard and kept me informed of major developments. He explained things in an easy to understand manner. If I ever needed a lawyer, I would use him again. I recommend him to anyone needing an attorney.

An advocate against big companies
Attorney Jeff Caffee was responsive, insightful and explained all of the ins and outs of the issues involving my case. Being fired from my job was extremely troubling for me. Jeff kept me feeling confident and positiive throughout. I am impressed with his knowledge, professionalism and overall genuine character. I would highly recommend him to others.

Excellent Communicator
Jeff always took the time to listen to me when others would not. He also took the time to explain the situation and explained the problems with my case even when it was difficult for me to hear.

Glad I FIRED HIM!
Glad I fired him! If you have any serious injuries like mine, ( TBI - Traumatic Brain Injury ) do not hire this lawyer or his firm for representation. I hired Jeff after my car accident in 2021. He talked a good "game" about my case and how he'd fight for me. That was further from the truth. I spent a little over a year in rehabilitation just for him to pass my case off to two different lawyers, one of which who didn't inform me of important developments like I asked. Almost filed my lawsuit in the wrong court, failed to obtain all of my medical records by the time of pre-trial and failed to tell me that for one of my trial hearings I didn't need to show up. I was hours away from waking into a court room I didn't need to be in. I would've never hired Christa on my own, she's not a fighter for tough cases and she lets her personal issues cloud her judgement towards her clients. If you want a lawyer who tells you to take the first offer because they don't feel like fighting, sure- hire him. If you want a lawyer who gives you an amount for your case, but changes 4 more times over the next 2 years and then backtracks, then sure, hire him. If you want a lawyer who tells you "You have a better chance of winning at the Casino" then sure, hire him. If you want a lawyer who can't answer questions or a lawyer who in 2 years couldn't get your vehicle fixed, made you get your own medical records, and insults you, then sure- hire him. If you want someone who respects you as a person and not just another case, find someone who specializes in your condition. I fired them once they dropped the ball. Found a lawyer who specializes in TBI and I couldn't have been happier. Not only did he do more for me and my case in 2 months than they did in 2 YEARS but he got me more than expected, had my truck fixed and I didn't have to see a court room!

I'd give Jeff a zer0 if I could
He talks a good talk, really is such a smooth talker! However, once the retainer is signed, he is more interested in working with the insurance companies than he is in working for the client. He got my hopes up for years that I would receive a 6-figure settlement and when we finally settled it was for just over 10k, which didn't cover the credit card debt that I had accrued while healing and unable to work. Words cannot describe how disappointed I am that I chose to have him as my lawyer. Please learn from my mistake and go with someone else.
