—Client Review

I’ve known Jeff (Blankenship) for many years.  When I started going through my divorce, he was the first I reached out to.  To my surprise, his first advice was to try to repair the marriage, if at all possible.  Unfortunately, that was not an option, but Jeff stuck by my side and helped me through all the emotional and financial burden that a divorce can place on you.  He was even able to get creative with the payment options, which was an enormous help in such a financially stressful time.  Our friendship has only grown from this experience, and we continue to work together even though my divorce is finalized.
