September 7, 2016 “Jeff is a great lawyer to retain. He is very personable and
knowledgeable. I had a client that looked to sue my company for unsubstantiated reasons and had not
paid me a fee. Mr Wax attending court hearings on several occasions, was able to substantiate to the
courts that my business performed a valuable service and in fact was owed its fees. My business was
rewarded a favorable judgement. Thank You Mr. Wax for all of help in my business matter.”

July 7, 2016 “I had a few landlord-tenant issues that I hired Jeff to help with.
Throughout the process he was quick to respond and communicate with me. He worked very efficiently
to deliver the result I was looking for and solved the problem. I would not hesitate to seek his service in
the future or recommend others use him.”

June 23, 2016 “Jeff handled a non profit matter involving a government assessment. Jeff was professional
and completed the work in an effective and competent manner, achieving the desired outcome for our
organization. I recommend Jeff without reservation.”
