  • We highly recommend Richard Jaffe and the firm of JHWK

    JHWK is an awesome group to work with and go above and beyond expectations!

  • I would recommend using them to anyone!
    Jaffe, Hanle, Whisonant & Knight, PC is the best in the state of Alabama. They were very attentive and available to answer any questions my wife and I had. My case was not an easy case to handle - I had no evidence to prove my innocence. Mr. Jaffe and Mr. Whisonant came through for my family and me. I would recommend using them to anyone that needs some hardcore lawyers.

  • Thank you Richard Jaffe for all that you have done for me and my family!

    In 2014, I had found myself in a very bad place not just personally, but legally as well. My family and I decided to put our trust in Richard Jaffe. This decision was no doubt the best decision that I could have made. Mr. Jaffe has my utmost respect both personally and professionally after the way he represented me during the most difficult time of my life. I was never made to feel like I was just another case. I felt like Mr. Jaffe truly wanted to see me rise above my circumstances and become a better man. Because Mr. Jaffe invested so much time and care into my case, I can truly say that 6 years later I am living my best life! Thank you Richard Jaffe for all that you have done for me and my family.

  • A person of prestige and remarkable high stature, empathy - extremely admirable!
    Dear Richard, I believe that no kindness should ever be ignored. Therefore, I find myself in a position of gratitude for the empathy you showed to this physically and financially disabled old lady. For you Richard, a person of prestige and remarkable high stature in the attorney arena, to take on a pesky "fall down" case is in fact a true "kindness"; and is extremely admirable!! You have my heartfelt thankful appreciation along with my hugs + kisses.

  • 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.

  • I am very grateful for Mr. Hanle.
    I am very appreciative of Mr. Hanle and I know he will do what’s best for [my family member]. When I first saw him, I knew he was like the old-school lawyers – well-dressed, well-groomed, good at what he does, but still modest. I am very grateful for him.

  • I am forever indebted to this firm.
    I would recommend this firm to any God-fearing man who wants to be treated as more than just an attorney/client relationship. This firm handled an allegation against me involving healthcare offenses. I have dealt with many attorneys in the past and this is the only firm that I consider family. Looking back and meeting other people who have been through similar white-collar circumstances makes you realize what a great job they really did for me. I am forever indebted to this firm.

  • He was attentive and punctual. He responded to anything I needed very quickly.
    I greatly appreciate Brett Knight's service. He was attentive and punctual. He responded to anything I needed very quickly. I can't speak on the other attorneys because I never met or spoke with them, but the office staff is extremely understanding and polite as well. This is the guy to call for assistance in any case. Thank you Brett Knight for everything.

  • They pursued a variety of outside the box options and seemed to exhaustively research every detail of my case.
    I was recently involved in a case involving multiple felonies and two separate states. I ended up retaining a local lawyer and an expensive, popular lawyer who specialized in cases such as mine. Concerned about the potential consequences i met with Mr. Jaffe and Mr. Knight and from the initial consultation my experience with their firm was as different as night and day from other comparable law firms (based on price and reviews). They were by far the most involved and dedicated and seemed to be the first attorneys to actually take my case seriously. They pursued a variety of outside the box options and seemed to exhaustively research every detail of my case. Above all they kept me up to date of every event and step required of me, most of the time contacting me before i even knew there was something i needed to be aware of. This was a far cry from having to call up my other attorneys weekly and still failing to get an appropriate response.

  • We are grateful that Mr. Jaffe had confidence in my son's ability to mature and move beyond his past mistakes.
    My 16-yr-old son was the driver of a car in an accident that killed one of his passengers, a teenage girl. (My son and the other passengers were wearing seatbelts except this particular girl. She was thrown from the car. Everyone else walked away from the accident.) They charged him as an adult for murder. There was no alcohol or drugs involved. Just immaturity. My son had no prior behavioral issues, arrests, or even problems at school. Mr. Jaffe was able to get the murder charge dismissed, and Youthful offender treatment and probation for my son. He did drug testing for over a year (ALL negative) and wore an ankle monitor for a year. He faithfully met with his probation officer every month and never missed a meeting or drug test. He went into counseling with a psychologist for about three years. The family asked that he do community service by speaking to teens about safe driving, but he had an intense fear of public speaking. (To this day, he takes every opportunity God gives to him to speak 1:1 to kids about safe driving and the importance of seat belts.) Since that time my son has become a certified personal trainer and is quite the encourager to many in the areas of weight loss and personal fitness. He also works in a lumber yard supervising a dozen men out of prison in a work release program. He urges them to not let their past define them or their future. He's able to be hard on them when needed, but he pushes them to move forward with their lives and overcome their past by making better decisions. We are so thankful to Mr. Jaffe for representing my son, for defending him against unreasonable consequences for his immaturity and poor choices. We understand someone wanting to make an example of a young person with lethal behavior behind the wheel of a car, but with no prior history of delinquent behavior and no drugs/alcohol involved, we appreciated Mr. Jaffe taking that into his consideration and defending him. We are grateful that Mr. Jaffe had confidence in my son's ability to mature and move beyond his past mistakes. My son never forgets what happened. He has to live with the knowledge that his actions took the life of a beautiful young lady, and it haunts him to this day. But he makes wise decisions and encourages others to do so as well.
