I was arrested by the incompetent NOPD, and Craig defended me perfectly and kept me out of jail. He didn't miss a meeting or a court date. He's reliable, and always works harder than the DA. Trust me, if you got charges to beat, he's the dude!Posted by Eric
Mr. Mordock successfully handled a matter for me in 2013 and into 2014. For the onset he was timely, engaged and effective. My matter was urgent and time sensitive and he immediately stepped in and showed an incredible sense of urgency with regards to solving immediate situation and then laid out a plan for the successful conclusion of the matter. He was absolutely reliable with the timeliness of his communications and he always answered my call, never once hesitating to thoroughly walk through the steps before us. This issue required several trips to court and at each turn he was prepared and reliably present, sharply focused and well versed on the matters that day. Following Mr. Mordocks advice and guidance, my issue was brought to a successful resolution and the outcome of the matter was one that saved me a tremendous amount of money and time. I would wholeheartedly recommend Craig Mordock for his legal services.JW
Jacqueline is THE best!! My husband and I recently had some issues with a third party that required legal counsel. Jacqueline was the first lawyer to answer the phone directly and start immediate action . She is so professional and really cares about her clients. No matter the question, time of day or work required Jacqueline is always there. It is very reassuring to know that she gives 110% and really genuinely cares about her clients. We don't consider her just our lawyer--she's a friend. Highly recommend her!Lindsey
Ms. Jackie was amazing! She really stood by my side through the entire ordeal. She answered all of my questions any time I needed her too and she was very patient with me! I appreciate everything that you have done as my attorney and if I'm ever in need of legal aid again, I will be sure to contact you! Thanks again 🙂Tia
