“I had a few landlord-tenant issues that I hired Jeff to help with. Throughout the process, he was quick to respond and communicate with me. He worked very efficiently to deliver the result I was looking for and solved the problem. I would not hesitate to seek his service in the future or recommend others use him.”

“Jeff handled a non-profit matter involving a government assessment. Jeff was professional and completed the work in an effective and competent manner, achieving the desired outcome for our organization. I recommend Jeff without reservation.”

“Jeff is a great lawyer to retain. He is very personable and knowledgeable. I had a client that looked to sue my company for unsubstantiated reasons and had not paid me a fee. Mr. Wax attended court hearings on several occasions, and was able to substantiate to the courts that my business performed a valuable service and in fact was owed its fees. My business was awarded a favorable judgement. Thank You, Mr. Wax, for all your help in my business matter.”
