I was charged with an offense with a possible sentence of 25 years to life. I am able to spend this Thanksgiving and Christmas with my loving family and children this year because of the help I received.
I was very informed of what was going on through the entire [divorce]. All e-mails were answered promptly. This worked very well, reducing the time I had to spend in Angleton.
Jeff communicated clearly and kept me informed at all times. As I am a resident in the UK and my son had the problem in Texas, this was extremely important. He is confidently competent, and I would certainly use him again. Although, I hope I never have to.
