“Your persistence, patience, and professionalism were instrumental in finally putting an end to this litigation ordeal. (The case ranks near the top of my most difficult cases to settle during over 3 decades as an attorney and over 2 decades as a mediator.)
You earned my respect as we worked through it to reach a settlement which makes sense for both parties.
Thanks – hope that we cross professional paths again.”

“Jeff has represented me on several issues, but the primary case has been an extended, but entertaining, defense in a civil suit brought by a female scam artist in the La Jolla area. Between her being incarcerated and her lawyer’s being disallowed practice privileges things have dragged along. But through it all Jeff has trudged on piling up victories. As much fun as this case has been, I’m hoping this final appeal will result in another, and final, victory for me at Jeff’s hands. I would not hesitate to use him again or recommend him. He’s a good fellow and a good attorney.”
