FIVE STAR RATING!!!!!!!
“Thanks for all you have done in this case concerning my son and his needs. Your firm was there for him, from beginning to end. What an awesome staff!”
Where I perceived a threat, Richard saw opportunity.
“We were a part of a team 20 years ago that represented Gary Drinkard in a capital retrial...There was a body wire worn by the snitch, but the contents of the tape were inaudible. Two weeks before the retrial, we received a call from prosecutors that [a company] had successfully enhanced the audio...My immediate reaction was terror...Wise Richard Jaffe told me to take a deep breath and that he had a feeling that the tape was going to help us...[T]he enhanced tape picked up enough of the conversation to show that Gary Drinkard was not confessing...Gary was acquitted in one hour. Where I perceived a threat, Richard saw opportunity.”
Extremely helpful, very professional, and kind!
Natalie, I wanted to thank you as well. You have been extremely helpful, very professional, and kind. JHWK is blessed to have you!”
