  • I cannot thank him enough.

    “When I met Richard Jaffe, it was the worst time in my life. I was being accused of a crime that I didn't commit and I didn't know how to prove it. When I came in, he listened to me, believed me, and fought for me. He was there for both trials, and if it was not for his expertise I'd be sitting on death row right now. I cannot thank him enough.”

  • “God chose this firm for me!!”

    “I can't thank Richard and Michael enough for their expertise and their knowledge of white-collar representation. Most importantly how much they really cared about my well-being mentally and physically throughout this process! This was the most difficult time in my life but Richard, Michael, and the entire firm made me and my family apart of their family. I can never repay what they have done for me and those I love!”
