The people here at JSF were very helpful
The people here at JSF were very helpful and professional at all times. I enjoyed working with Laura, Susan, Barry, and Yolanda. They all were superb. If you ever need a thorough attorney, seek out James Scott Farrin…. 1

I would recommend ANY and EVERYONE
I would recommend ANY and EVERYONE who has unfortunately been injured at their job and been treated unfairly to give JSF a call immediately. I had a very unpopular case, and JSF stepped up to the plate and delivered. I'm beyond ecstatic about my outcome! 1
