After being bullied and harassed and threatened by my former landlord’s attorney, I left a Google Review of that attorney and filed for a court order that he stop harassing me. (I was asking for my security deposit back.) I was then SLAPPed with a defamation and malicious prosecution lawsuit by my landlord’s attorney, who asked for well over 50 thousand dollars in damages. A real nightmare. One phone call with Jeff made me certain I was in good hands. He explained anti-SLAPP laws in CA in incredibly simple terms and I felt ready to take this on. Then, after ONE phone call with Jeff, my landlord’s attorney withdrew his complaint– he completely folded (which, by the way, did far more damage to his reputation than my silly google review). Jeff is an incredible legal talent and also an incredible people person. You’re in good hands here!
I must admit, I can be outspoken and posted truthful negative reviews on social media and there was unwarranted backlash from the business I targeted. I found myself sued for the first time in my life and literally scared to death. Jeff handled everything and helped preserve my first amendment rights and saved the day. He’s certainly an expert in this area of the law and would highly recommend his services to anyone that is legally being bullied. He filed on my behalf an anti-SLAPP motion that resulted in a successful outcome for us. I can’t thank him enough for his help.
Got sued for speaking my mind in public. Jeff filed an anti-SLAPP motion that looked like a Supreme Court brief. Got the individual who sued me to pay all of my costs. Jeff knows his stuff cold, and he’s a nice guy too!
Hiring an attorney is a scary thing sometimes. I called and spoke with a number of lawyers, and chose Jeffery because of his responsiveness, directness, and my sense of his integrity, as well as his experience in my filed of concern. Candidly, I was very worried about his billable hours, as many attorneys I spoke with seemed to need thousands of dollars before even really getting started.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that he took just the time he needed to handle the communication I needed him to address (one issue billed out at under two hours over a period of several weeks – it isn’t the cost per hour as much as the time a particular attorney needs and how he calculates his time). He kept me up to date by email so I never felt out of the loop, followed my requests, and gave candid and valuable advice that, far more often than not, limited his compensation and always looked out for my interests.
Jeffrey negotiated a $100K+ (unreasonably high) lawsuit down to about $7K in one instance, and navigated a difficult negotiation for me in another situation with a very difficult, unreasonable, and vindictive individual. As a small, family business, these two issues could have been very impactful on us without good representation.
I do hope I never need his litigation orientated services again, but he has my trust and my business for my legal needs in the future, and I unreservedly recommend him.
The public medical center where I work had a dispute with a real estate development firm. Sadly, the issue escalated, and the real estate firm sued the medical center and two individuals. Fortunately for the medical center and me, Jeff Lewis was our counsel. He is very diligent and a knowledgeable attorney who went above and beyond my expectations!
Throughout the entire process – from depositions to trial – Jeff kept us informed each step of the way. He took time to explain and educate me on the process. He identified various options on how to proceed and discussed possible outcomes as well as the business impact. I am impressed that he is so personable and understanding with clients, and then tough and appropriately aggressive in the court room. He is professional, and remained professional despite some questionable tactics by opposing counsel.
He is always responsive and is well versed on the law. We are lucky we hired him and had a good outcome. If the need arises in the future – it’s Jeff and his team who I will seek out to assist!
Mr. Lewis is very pleasant to work with, very knowledgeable for what he does, utilizing the most expert professional in his deposition. He will be very highly recommended to my friends and relative whom needing legal assistance in the areas of his expertise. He talks very clear and well, gets to the point fast and help to achieve your legal rights.
