What Our Clients Say
If anyone needs a competent, honest, and knowledgeable lawyer then Jeff Blankenship is your man. I was going to lose my case in court until Jeff Blankenship became my lawyer. He turned everything around and saved the day. He is wise beyond his years and has extensive knowledge of the law and the capability to argue it well before the judge with good character, which is so rare in this day and age, and amazing reasoning. He works hard for his clients and has a brilliant mind that knows what to present to the judge and exactly how to word it. I cannot say enough good about this man. He is truly one of the greatest lawyers, in my opinion, of all time!
It has been a pleasure working with Matthew Smith on several estate planning/trust matters over the course of the past two years. Matthew is very knowledgeable and diligent in representing his clients.
Matt (Smith) was prompt, professional, and resolved a last-minute legal issue for my company perfectly. I was pressed for time, and needed a quick resolution to a situation. Matt reviewed the matter via email, and within a few hours responded with an amazingly on-point analysis and recommended an effective course of action. I was fortunate to have been referred to him, and highly recommend him for business law.
Matt and I have been working together for several years, and I have had the pleasure of assisting his clients on several intellectual property matters. Matt is a true professional with a passion for helping his clients. His bedside manner is superb as is his intellect and knowledge of the law. I highly recommend Matt and his firm.
