I highly endorse this lawyer. Jason and his team work tirelessly to help their clients fight back against the banking industry to preserve their rights to home ownership. If you ever find yourself facing foreclosure in California, I highly recommend you contact Jason and his team.

Excellent attorney with a very competent staff. You are getting a full law office with Jason and not just one guy or one guy and a secretary struggling to manage a ridiculous workload. Their offices take messages and return calls in a timely and professional way.
