    "Jeff Stein saved my life!


    Jeff Stein represented me in a life changing case. He performed miraculously, nothing short of perfect. Mr. Stein had a great reputation with all professionals around him, especially the Judge. It was obvious everyone he came in contact with had a high respect for him. Mr. Stein is brilliant and compassionate at the same time. He has a special talent knowing timing in the courtroom. My case turned out the best case scenario because of Jeff. I fully believe Jeff Stein makes miracles happen! I cannot express in this review how great he is. I am so blessed that I was directed to him to represent me. Mr. Stein was prompt on answering all questions I had. I felt protected as long as Jeff handled every aspect of my case. I have full trust that Jeff Stein will help you too, not only help you but he will get the BEST case scenario for you too!!! I highly recommend Jeff Stein to represent you during this hard time. I wish you the best!!"




    "Jeffery Stein was extremely responsive and took time and care to learn every detail of my case. He was very creative and knowledgeable in choosing which angles he would choose to fight the case. He was easy to talk to, and reassuring."

    "Outstanding legal representation from Jeff Stein.


    Jeff Stein is an outstanding Legal Counsel, and very well connected within the judicial system. His ability to communicate in common terms, for those outside of the legal community, was refreshing and relaxing to us during our legal issue.


    I highly recommend Jeff Stein to anyone with a legal issue, whether large or small."




    "Jeffrey Stein helped me through a rough spot in life, which, sometimes can be complicated. And, did so amidst a very busy schedule. He successfully managed my case with genuine concern. His mind is keen has good knowledge of what is required to resolve an unfortunate circumstance. In my opinion, without Jeffrey, and his team, the outcome of my case would not have been as successful."




    "I was in need of a lawyer in the San Luis Obispo area. Through a series of high profile lawyers in my hometown, it lead me to Jeff Stein. From the very beginning and throughout the entire process, Mr. Stein was nothing but professional, compassionate, and informative. His calming demeanor and reassurance is what got me through the process. Any and all correspondence was returned in a timely manner. Mr. Stein should be proud of his contribution to the profession."




    "Always available and ready to help when you need him most.


    Throughout the entire time Jeff was helping me through my case, he was very responsive, informative and was exactly what I needed. He has an excellent reputation around SLO county, which is always very useful when dealing with the court system. He will go out of his way to help you whenever you need it and is an all-around great guy."




    "I was referred to Jeff by my business attorney. Jeff’s character was above reproach. He was calm, caring and non-judgmental. Nor did he sugar-coat things. His approach was refreshing. He laid out the situation in an honest manner not over or under selling our situation. He knew the law and devised a strategy for success, based on our situation. He took the necessary time to prepare the strategy and us for court and the various hearings. In the end we prevailed. Hopefully, we will not need his services again but if we did we call Jeff Stein again. We recommend him without hesitation."




    "I was so pleased with the service and representation we received from Jeff Stein. When I first contacted his firm to inquire about representation, I did so by submitting an email about my matter (which by the way was submitted early on a Monday morning, following a long holiday weekend). Jeff Stein returned my call himself in about an hour of my submission!


    From that moment forward I felt I was in good hands. He was always quick to respond to a phone call or email. He was accurate in the information he provided, and his advice on how to proceed turned out to be spot on. We could not have hoped for a more favorable outcome.


    Not only was his representation and advice wonderful, he demeanor in dealing with me and my son in a difficult matter was such that he put both of us at ease despite the stress we felt at the time. I would unconditionally recommend his service!"
