“After a head-on automobile accident put my life at risk and left me not knowing what was in store for my future in all regards, Jeff took me under his wing and made me feel safe and protected from the start. One very important point that stands out is that he made me feel as if I were his only client throughout the two-year process. He got to know me and my family personally and wanted to know not only every painstaking detail of my accident, but my life before the accident and how my life was affected afterward. I cannot state deeply enough the way in which he took such a traumatic experience and made us feel cared for, comforted and reassured.”
