I have worked extensively with Mr. Helsdon on civil litigation matters for nearly 25 years. Mr. Helsdon practices to the highest ethical standards of the profession. His zealous advocacy for his clients, his grasp of legal principles, and his ability to produce quality results are without equal in my experience. He is worthy of an AV rating.

Better than I expected.

I have relied on Jeff's expertise in real estate law for many years and have referred clients to him several times. I am a licensed limited practice officer and have often called on Jeff for assistance with transactions beyond my scope of practice.

In guiding me through a complicated real estate transaction with potentially large tax consequences, Jeffrey Helsdon provided unparalleled expertise. I fully intend to engage Mr. Helsdon to assist with any new legal matters which may develop in the future.
