I have had the pleasure of working with Jeff on multiple cases over the course of the last 12 years. He has shown a great deal of compassion and commitment to me and my family. He has resolved cases quickly and insured that I had the best possible outcome. He kept me out of jail at a time where I was potentially going to miss the birth of my son. For that I am eternally grateful.

After being robbed with another attorney that did absolutely nothing for my case. We searched up lawyers on yelp and came upon Jeff Kent. We saw the excellent reviews and stars from previous customers and decided to talk to him as well as other lawyers we had already talked to. Immediately Jeff made me feel like he knew what he was doing and that he would definitely be able to help me. He is very professional and knows so much about the system. He closed my case successfully and I am so great full to have found him and not have to step foot Into to prison. I would definitely go to him for any other case I need and will surely recommend him to anyone I know that needs of his assistance.

I could not be happier with my experience! I was referred to Jeffrey by my mother who has been a long term family friend with him. Jeffrey is outstanding at his practice, and could not have been more professional. He always kept me informed with the newest information on my case. He was able to get my DUI case completely dismissed. I highly recommend and I will definitely be using him again in the future if needed. Thanks Jeff!

I called on Jeffrey Kent to inquire about defending my son who had been charged with assault on a minor, which to our mind was a great overstatement for a family scuffle. The name of the charge makes it sound horrible. At our first meeting Jeff put it in perspective, and was able to speak with my son in a calm reassuring but realistic manner, and best of all, to listen attentively and with great understanding. This went a long way to give us confidence. Further, his follow through with the details of the case and reduction of the charge to simple battery was most gratifying. We found Mr. Kent to be very professional, knowledgeable, a great listener and negotiator. It is without hesitation that I highly recommend The Kent Law Firm.

Great experience with The Kent Law Firm. Very professional and very prompt and clear about how to approach the whole situation. i was in a real bender which was immigration sensitive which made the case that much more complicated. I couldn’t just take any deal no matter how good it sounded and Jeff Kent made sure we got the best option possible while still saving my status in this country. I highly recommend this law firm for any criminal case.

I contacted Jeff Kent when we found out that our son was looking at some serious time. I felt so nervous because our son had a back ground that we were not totally aware of all the details. Jeff was kind, calm and made it easy to understand. It was a hard time but Jeff gave us hope and it turned out our son could be home for his 21st birthday. Thank you so much!

Jeff worked hard to get my granddaughter the best deal possible. She was in serious trouble and very emotional the first time that she talked to Jeff. Jeff was very patient with her and gave her excellent advice. There was no way that she was not going to prison, but Jeff did his best to keep her calm while keeping her family informed. I hope that our family never needs a lawyer again, but if we do we will definitely call Jeff.

I can’t thank Jeff Kent enough. Having had a prior misdemeanor offense dropped through his help, I returned to his office when I picked up a new charge (this one potentially being a felony). He was both considerate and knowledgeable about my situation and most importantly he was someone I could trust. The charge was mitigated to a misdemeanor, I avoided jail time, and kept my job. Moreover, he was able to provide me with options for personal help considering my case.

Words can’t describe how satisfied I am with Jeff Kent’s services. I interviewed maybe 10 other lawyers before going with him because he simply was more knowledgeable than the rest and also made you feel at ease when you think your life is about to get flipped upside down. He saved me from a felony charge along with a probation violation and now I can fulfill my daily responsibilities and live life normally again.If you are searching for a lawyer look no further.

Mr. Jeff Kent was referred to me at a very difficult time in my life. I felt lost and scared at the same time for the situation I was in. From the moment I met Mr. Kent, he put my mind to ease. He was very patient and went through every scenario of what the outcome could possibly be in my case. Thank fully the case was dismissed without moving further. But Mr. Kent was on top of the information and was contacting and asking the appropriate people on where my case stood, and kept me informed at each step of the way.I would recommend Mr. Kent to anyone in need of his services without hesitation.Thank you Jeff.

This review is specific to Jeff Kent. Unfortunately, I had a couple mishaps over my lifetime, and in both instances, Jeff was there to aid me. Jeff is extremely professional, courteous and friendly. In both instances, Jeff made my dealings with the courts almost non-existent, dealt with my cases on my behalf and both times, came back with favorable outcomes. I can’t speak highly enough about Jeff and the great job that he has done for me personally. He’ll always be in my phone book for any mishaps in the future too (hoping I never have to call again though)! Thanks Jeff!!!

Jeff Kent was an awesome attorney. Not only did he appear in court on my behalf 9 times but was also successful in getting all my charges dismissed, keeping my dmv record clean, no increases in my insurance and fortunately I was able to keep my job. I would recommend him to anybody who needs an excellent attorney.

When his military career was in jeopardy….When my minor son found himself in trouble with the law…..We were just beside ourselves with worry. We would have to go to Court, the charges seemed terrible, I was thinking of just riding it out with the Court, accepting whatever the Court was going to do. I have worked in a Court setting and Court was not unfamiliar to me…but this was my son’s future.I had gone to school with Jeff Kent, I had known Jeff professionally, and always thought highly of him, not only as an individual but also as a professional.We called Jeff and from the first interview I was immediately relieved and I knew my son’s future was in more than capable hands.Three court dates later, my son’s case was dismissed. Jeff guided us through the Court process, gave us step by step instructions on what my son and his family would need to do. With some work on our part at the direction of our attorney and Jeff’s skill and knowledge with the Juvenile Justice system my son’s case, as of today July 15, 2013, is dismissed and his life is back on track.The Medina family
