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!
Matt (Smith) helped my mother update her estate documents following a series of medical issues. He was kind, patient, and compassionate. He listened to her desires, clearly explained her options, and prepared the requested documents in a timely manner. He reviewed exactly what was being implemented with direct and understandable language. My mother was pleased with Matt’s caring professionalism and that her end-of-life wishes would be honored.
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.
I just wanted to say how much I appreciated all the hard work Matt Smith and his associates did on my behalf. The compassion everyone showed was amazing and comforting! I will highly recommend Ziegler & Schneider to all my family and friends. Thanks again!
