Client Comments

"Jeff is an experienced, clever, and diligent advocate for his clients and always puts clients' interests first. He takes responsibility for the matters he represents his clients on and makes sure that they are aware of the status and issues. As an in-house lawyer, it's comforting to have him on the outside because I know that a matter will be well managed and that I won't have to spend an inordinate amount of time on it, but I also know that he'll reach out for and take input."
