2017 was a rough year for me. I rear ended on a highway in October and my sister had her car hit by a drunk driver in November.
After my accident, I was fine but my wife felt a little pain on her back, so I took her to the chiropractor. I was referred to Jeff by the doctor there. little background story: As an immigrant, I've seen so many cases of fraud by immigration lawyers, so I had a trust issue with getting lawyers involved. Because my case was pretty obvious and injury was very minor, I decided to take thing to my own hands.
My sister however, had concussion and her car was totaled. Thinking there's no way this can be handled without a lawyer, I decided to swallow the pill and decided to consult with Jeff on her case.
My first impression with Jeff: extremely professional, knowledgeable, and truly cares about his clients. His instructions were very clear and concise, and there was no secret during the entire step: Jeff made sure I was well aware of what is going on, and made sure my sister would get a proper treatment as well as compensation.
Here's what impressed me the most. My sister is not the best in follow ups and keeping track of things. If I were in Jeff's situation, I would have lost my mind on how little cooperation the client is giving. I don't know if he had some mind training in temple before he became a lawyer, but he made the best out of close-to-none cooperation from my sister.
Back to my story. I was going through a nightmare trying to reach their insurance company, and later to find out that they went out of business! I had to file a claim with my own under non-insured coverage, which was denied and I was about to pay the bill out of my pocket! Jeff kindly decided to take over my case pro bono and from there, everything was a smooth sailing.
After looking at his great work, I regret I didn't ask Jeff to handle my case from the start, then the treatment and compensation could have been much greater, with zero headache. Even when he jumped in the middle of the case after my mud fight, I was well compensated and both my wife and I are in a good shape now.
It was unfortunate that two car accidents happened in one year, but by meeting Jeff, my view on lawyers is completely changed: there are surely the one who leeches money from clients, but there are great and honest ones like Jeff as well!
I'm now far far away from Downey so it's highly unlikely Jeff will be able to work for me again, but if something happens in the future and if I can find a lawyer just as half good as Jeff is, I'll know I'll be in good hands.
Thank you Jeff for all your great work for my family!
