What Our Clients Say
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.
After knowing Jeff (Blankenship) for many years and overpaying for legal services to gain custody of my kids, I finally gave Jeff a try. Jeff was able to save me money and complete the task of gaining custody of my kids. Now, years later, he is always attentive to my calls and treats me like a friend instead of just a client. Highly recommend, and my only regret was not hiring him earlier.
Michael Baker is a wonderful lawyer for bankruptcy issues. He really helps the consumer through the bankruptcy with dignity.
Awesome attorneys! Staff is superb. Could not ask for any better!
Ms. Pleatman was professional, kind and looked out for my children's best interest. When times were stressful and difficult, Ms. Pleatman was calm, confident and got the job done efficiently and with grace.
Jeff (Blankenship) and his team are amazing! From the moment they became involved in my son’s case, all I had to worry about was getting him the treatment he needed. Every step was explained, and every problem was handled. They made us feel more like family than a case or number.
Matt (Smith) was friendly and professional. The office staff were helpful and friendly. I would certainly recommend and use the firm’s services again.
Thank you for the excellent preparation work by Jessica (Wehrman) and the efficient closing process with you, Catherine (Stavros).
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.
