Awesome attorney! Excellent, professional, patient and friendly! I was so hopeless dealing with a holdover tenant not paying rent and trying to damage my property. Jamie Roth worked on every detail with me, from the very beginning to the end of the eviction process. He was always very calm during my storm. His knowledge and experience earned my respect and full trust. I therefore strongly recommend Mr. Roth.

Jamie served on my team as real estate program manager for 11 years with consummate integrity, professionalism and a selfless commitment to resolve complex issues, ensuring successful completion of numerous time-constrained high-profile border security infrastructure and facility construction projects. Jamie's real estate and eminent domain knowledge is noteworthy, but the key ingredient to his effectiveness is his tenacious determination and innate ability to dismantle intricate issues and distill them down to a clear, actionable gameplan. Jamie is a rare asset to have on your team, especially when the challenges are great and the stakes are high.
