Jeffrey’s human approach was super appreciated, and made a very unpleasant situation much more manageable. Really appreciated the partnership, kindness, and easy/quick communication style- and honestly went above and beyond what

Just recently closed a chapter that Jeff so wonderfully helped me through. After three years and countless emails, calls, and meetings I obtained a settlement I could be happy with. The best thing Jeff made me aware of from day one was that this isn’t law and order it will take longer than an hour.

Nobody likes to go through employment uncertainty or trouble, but if you do you know this is a dependable firm. The firm is run by two siblings and I mostly spoke with Jeff regarding my problem, he’s highly intelligent…

I cannot recommend Risman & Risman enough. This firm has a level of professionalism that puts them head above shoulders above other law firms. When I had a contract dispute I reached out to six firms and Risman were to only ones to reach back to me in an acceptable amount of time. Risman gave…
