Jeff was my lawyer back in 2010. I've been in touch with him in recent weeks and feel inspired to write a much delayed review. My experience working with him is still crystal clear!
I hired Jeff as a 28 year old young professional who made the dumb idea to drive drunk. Jeff was referred to me by a family friend who also had glowing things to say about his experience with Kradel Defense. He helped me to not only navigate the legal system thanks to his concise, clear language — I felt comfortable and knowledgable every step of the way. Yes, Jeff understands the law but he was also incredibly creative in his problem solving and approach. We eventually got my really tricky DUI charge down to something much lesser, with the charge being taken off my record after several years (the reason I got back in touch and thought to write this review).
I'll also add: Jeff is a standup, nice guy. He will be your advocate, he will be honest and his services are worth every penny. :)

Jeff get me out of serious felony when the prosecutor was ready to charge me and put me 6 months in prison , a hired him and that was the right move , pace get back to my mind , he put the two FBI agents in in the stand in front of the judge, he probed that they were lying and make them accept it , in other words he blow out their statements that was great! he make them look unprepared, and poor trained, I recommend Jeff any time, he's fees very reasonable, very nice to work with him thanks Jeff!

I retained Jeffrey Kradel to handle a felony defense matter for a young adult. Jeff was superb in every respect. He makes you feel like you are his only client. He made himself available to answer questions and responded to email promptly. Jeff communicated very well with his client and everyone involved with the case. He explains alternatives and consequences very clearly and always thinks calmly and strategically. Jeff did an excellent job of negotiating with the district attorney, a feat I thought was impossible. He is dedicated and determined to get the best result for his client. Jeff has the highest level of skill and expertise in criminal defense. I have no reservations whatsoever giving Jeff the highest rating possible.

Jeff is an absolutely fantastic attorney. He has the amazing ability to comprehend the most complex legal concepts, and distill them down to make them accessible to judges, juries, clients, and other attorneys. That's one of the most valuable traits you can hope for in a criminal defense lawyer. Jeff is very well respected in the criminal justice system, and has a reputation for working hard to achieve the best results for his clients. He doesn't back down from a fight! I call on Jeff for advice in complex matters, and never fail to come away from those conversations with insight and encouragement. I consider him one of my mentors, as he helped train me when I began my practice 11 years ago. You will be in excellent hands if you hire Jeff. I endorse him without hesitation.
