    Kathy

  • ... he listens to your concerns and fears and fights for them as they are his own.

    “This has truly been a long ride for me as a simple divorce turned into an unnecessary stressful event. I truly wish I would've known about this practice when I decided to proceed with this divorce back in 2014. Jorge Santana actually cares for his clients,”

    “A huuuuuuuge gigantic from the heart thank you to Rita Jackman, world's best Real Estate attorney for helping my client out above and beyond. Came to the rescue and there are not enough words.”

    Char Seuffer

  • Best Attorney I have ever used.

    “Rita Jackman has been a refreshing change from my past experiences with legal matters. I appreciate that She gets back to me in a timely manner. And She always takes the time to understand my questions and concerns. As an owner of Sunshine Workforce, a staffing company our problems may be unique but that does not seem to concern her. I highly recommend. Vic Tabarrini”

    New type of Lawyer???

  • I placed my full trust in Rita and she delivered above and beyond.

    “Highly recommend Rita Jackman! She was extremely helpful during one of the most stressful and confusing times. Never once did I have to worry about how to handle the next steps as she and her team kept proactive and helpful communication throughout the entire post-accident process. I placed my full trust in Rita and she delivered above and beyond. I will always be grateful for her and her team. Having the representation of Rita means that you are in fully capable hands. I was able to take care of my injuries, relax, and let her focus on the hard part! THANK YOU x1000! You will not go wrong with her representation.”
