"Jared was all I could ever ask for in an attorney. He was able to bring my case to what I believe was the best possible resolution. Throughout what has been the hardest time of my life, he was kind, compassionate and understanding of the difficulties facing me. He made everything a little less scary and helped to put everything into perspective for me. I hope to never have to call him again, but I will be recommending him to anyone in need of legal aid in Clackamas county"

"Jared successfully helped me with an old case that was never settled. I hired him immediately after meeting him because he showed a genuine care and interest into finding the best possible outcome for me. He was honest and upfront with all of the outcomes to prepare me for anything, he responded promptly to all of my emails and phone calls, and he was professional yet personable the entire time. I recommend Jared because he not only settled my case successfully, he worked with me and made sure that I was fully prepared and taken care of. Thank you again!"

"Jared was recommended to me and I'm glad I used his help. No nickle and dimes every time something came up he was very transparent with the process and helped make me feel at ease as we went through my case. The case was dropped and we are now getting it expunged from my record."
