I was in a motorcycle accident and retained Jeffrey Raphael to represent me. I had been charged with careless driving and the insurer of my motorcycle told me my insurance had lapsed. Jeff was able to get the charges dropped, reinstate my insurance and settle my case for $1.5 million.
I sustained catastrophic injuries in a car accident. I hired a lawyer from the yellow pages but was not happy with the job they did for me. I then retained Jeffrey Raphael to take over my law suit. Jeff did an excellent job and was able to settle my case for more than I expected. Jeff kept me updated on all the developments in my case and was very knowledgeable about the law. I would not hesitate to recommend him. - D.S.
