      Jeffrey was fantastic. He set realistic expectations with every interaction, was always available for any questions I had and ultimately got a dismissal of my case. Jeffrey was miles ahead of the prosecution the entire case. If it had gone to trial, I am extremely confident he would have won the case hands down. Jeffrey was a true professional, and I would highly recommend him to anyone facing criminal prosecution.

      I was recently faced with the charge of a hit-and-run/DUI. When going through the overwhelming court process, it really helps to have a professional and knowledgeable attorney at your side for guidance. Jeff proved to be this and more. His experience in the courtroom really shows and I felt like a had the best defense possible on my side. In the end my charges were reduced to a reckless driving and we won the hearing with the DOL. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome! Thanks Jeff!
