"I have personally known Jeff for over 15 years and I highly recommend him with the utmost confidence. He is not only a great attorney but also a very personable and great guy. He is well-versed in both municipal law and environmental law and is a constant referral to my clients that need guidance in those areas. - Ray Miller, Esq."
"I interviewed several lawyers and was having a hard time finding one I felt really understood not only the legal guidance that I needed but the emotional connotation that came along with what was happening. After my first conversation with Jeff there was a distinct difference between him and other lawyers I had spoken to. He was a great listener, had a clear understanding of what I needed legally, was never condescending and did not minimize the urgency of my needs. The more I worked with him and started to receive drafts of the contracts he was working on for me I was pleasantly surprised that his work on paper matched the desire to be of service for good. I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone looking for a legal advocate. - Leslie Scott, former President and Executive Director, Youth Protection in Dance Advocates"
