Richard Jaffe first helped my family 20 years ago, and we have retained him on several other occasions since then. His knowledge of the law, negotiation skills and professionalism would be enough to earn a high recommendation, but what really sets him apart is his accessibility, responsiveness and compassion. It’s not an exaggeration to say that Richard has saved my family’s lives, and I’ll be forever grateful that I have him in my corner.
