What Jeffrey Kaufman’s clients say about him
I’ve been through a lot of hardship, and Jeffrey Kaufman has helped me through much of it. I had a knee injury at work and they stopped my workers comp. I had two knee surgeries, a torn ACL and a head injury. I was unable to work because of short-term memory loss and headaches. Last but not least, I ended up having breast cancer and I found out a month ago it was in my spine and my pelvis. When I hired Jeffrey to help me with my workers compensation case, I was on chemotherapy at the time. I remember him saying that I don’t deserve this injustice (of having my workers comp benefits cut off). He was so caring – yet he could get the job done. He always said, “It’s not about me, it’s about you.” And Jeffrey Kaufman is still helping me with issues even though my case is over. He always called be back and answered my phone calls. When I was too sick to talk, he would communicate regularly with my friends to make sure I was taken care of and always knew what was going on. I felt Jeff was smart and knew the law and I was confident in his ability. I ended up getting workers compensation benefits, even my back benefits – everything. Jeff is unbelievably kind-hearted – to the point he would make sure I got to my car safely. If I ever had any other problems, I wouldn’t even think twice about going to any other workers compensation lawyer. He is a very good attorney.

Jeffrey Kaufman handled my husband’s workers compensation case. He was a bricklayer and injured at work. They cut off his workers comp benefits. I was so worried about having to call a lawyer. What if they couldn’t do anything? What if my husband didn’t get his benefits paid? He was the breadwinner in the family. But Jeffrey made me feel like everything was going to be okay. He comforted me, and told me not to worry. As time went on, I trusted him more and more. I knew he was doing a good job and I eventually stopped worrying, because he took care of everything. I can’t say enough good things about him. I’m very satisfied with what Jeffrey has done and how he responded to us. Every time I called, he called me back right away. Jeffrey never had me wait. He’s a very nice man and I would do more business with him any time. I would recommend anybody to him. We’re going to have him as our lifetime lawyer.
