Because of you, I have always felt that my baby and I had someone on our side. Someone willing to fight for what was right. While nothing will ever take away what happened to my little girl, you have provided her with justice. I don’t in any way wish to take away from the justice of the criminal case, however; I do feel that both myself and my daughter were treated with a greater deal of dignity and kindness largely due to your representation.
Thank you, Jeff – For giving my little girl a brighter future and for showing her that true justice does exist in this world. Thank you for being there for us, when even our family was not. Thank you for not giving up – even when we were ready to throw in the towel. Thank you for your strength and for your words of wisdom, always knowing what to say when I was at my weakest points through this case – I was able to be – because you were strong enough for us all. You were our rock, always stable, in this world of uncertainty – the one person that we knew for sure was on our side – So again, I say, thank you – and God bless you and your family, for all that you do – and have done.
My dad was a World War II veteran and survivor of the Battan death march. Unfortunately, he didn’t survive his visit to a local long term care facility. After a stay at a Veteran’s hospital he went to a long term care facility for short term rehabilitation. The facility placed him in their assisted living wing instead of placing him on a skilled care unit that was recommended upon his discharge. They allowed him to roam the facility by himself and because of his dementia and unsteady gait, he fell and suffered a hip fracture.
I spent considerable time researching who to hire as an attorney and ultimately went with Jeffrey Downey. He was experienced, confident and responsive to my many questions during what was very difficult time in my life. The litigation was contentious with a lot of discovery and motions going back and forth between the attorneys. In video depositions Jeff obtained important concessions from the nursing staff about their lack of staffing and failure to follow basic standards in fall prevention. The facility took a hard line initially on settlement and we went through mediation and a court pretrial hearing without resolving the case. We settled shortly before trial for an amount in excess of $500,000 dollars.
Beyond being a great attorney Jeff was also someone I trusted. I would highly recommend him for any litigation matter, especially a case involving elder neglect.
I will always remember the courtesy and respect you extended to my father and I (during a very difficult time), walking us through the wrongful death lawsuit of my mother.
It was never an inconvenience for you to make the situation and demand of the case easier for my eighty-eight year old father – like the afternoon you came to our house. You never backed off with any part of the investigation or mediation. You fought for what we all felt was right and fair to the family. You understood that my mother was a loved one, a person – not allowing her age to be the main factor.
My mother will always be remembered and even more so, by the investments we have made and how they will remain with us throughout the remainder of our lives. My father purchased his travel trailer and spent a month in Florida with his two brothers, and the best care that could be provided him in his last days; my son was able to purchase a house for his family instead of rent receipts; and I took my 100 day dream vacation touring Alaska, Canada and twenty-seven other states of the United States. Monies are still in investments working for our remaining futures.
All I can say is – thank you for a job well done, while extending the feelings of compassion and friendship.
My Father was a retired U. S. Marine who fought in World War II and Korea. He was a wonderful loving father and a great and caring friend to all who knew him.
He entered into a Nursing Home for rehabilitation which led to his ultimate downfall because of the Nursing Home’s neglect in overseeing his care.
Upon receiving an excellent recommendation, we retained Jeffrey J. Downey as our attorney. Mr. Downey’s profound legal skill and experience in nursing home abuse brought our family closure to the egregious ordeal which my father should never have experienced. Our family would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Downey to anyone who would require such help in dealing with elder neglect.
The firm handled a slip and fall case for me. I was very satisfied. Anytime I had a question it was answered promptly. I was kept updated during the entire process and was always told my options. I really enjoyed the personal attention I got. I could not have had a better experience.
