"Jerzy is the most ethical lawyer I've had, he provides great advice. Definitely got more than I was expecting through his hard work and strategic preparation. Very professional and very honest when it comes to guidance. I liked the most he just doesn't want to drag the opposing party though inflammatory mud. Thanks Jerz, I appreciate everything you've done”.
