Hiring an attorney is a scary thing sometimes. I called and spoke with a number of lawyers, and chose Jeffery because of his responsiveness, directness, and my sense of his integrity, as well as his experience in my filed of concern. Candidly, I was very worried about his billable hours, as many attorneys I spoke with seemed to need thousands of dollars before even really getting started.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that he took just the time he needed to handle the communication I needed him to address (one issue billed out at under two hours over a period of several weeks – it isn’t the cost per hour as much as the time a particular attorney needs and how he calculates his time). He kept me up to date by email so I never felt out of the loop, followed my requests, and gave candid and valuable advice that, far more often than not, limited his compensation and always looked out for my interests.
Jeffrey negotiated a $100K+ (unreasonably high) lawsuit down to about $7K in one instance, and navigated a difficult negotiation for me in another situation with a very difficult, unreasonable, and vindictive individual. As a small, family business, these two issues could have been very impactful on us without good representation.
I do hope I never need his litigation
orientated services again, but he has my trust and my business for my legal needs in the future, and I unreservedly recommend him.
