Client Testimonials

I would be remiss to not take a moment to thank you once again for the help, direction and support you gave us during those trying years.  I am happy to report that some of [my mother's] most carefree and fun days were spent after the lawsuit resolved.  You certainly helped her pave a road to both time and a life well spent.

Dear Jeff: I wanted to take this opportunity to express our deepest thanks to you for taking on my son Brian’s case and bringing it to a successful conclusion.  Our family felt so completely at ease with you right from our first meeting.  Brian felt comfortable talking to you openly in every meeting we had and your overview of the mediation process helped him feel confident and capable of participating in the mediation process. 

We quickly came to know your primary objective was to do what was best for Brian, your care for him as a person was so clear and apparent to all of us; the outstanding settlement as a result of mediation was further proof.  You are a true professional Jeff and we are a grateful family.

Dear Jeff and Christine: Thank you for everything.  From the beginning you have taken care of my case in such a professional and reassuring way.  I knew you were working for the best outcome without me needing to worry over the months of the process.
