When you’re living paycheck-to-paycheck, an accident can change everything in your life instantly: lost wages, skyrocketing medical bills, and court costs, to name a few. Unfortunately, people in low socioeconomic classes often find themselves at a disadvantage when seeking justice after being wronged by others. On top of their financial status, factors like language barriers and unfamiliarity with the legal system can make getting justice difficult for them, resulting in delayed outcomes and unfair decisions.
Attorney Jeff Fayngor of the JLF Firm in Los Angeles is an avid advocate for social justice and sees his work as a means of bringing about change through the practice of law. His compassion for his clients and dedication have earned him multiple accolades, including the 10 Best Attorneys in LA award. He also has numerous Yelp awards and the Rising Star Award from Super Lawyers. But winning awards is not his primary motivation.
Born and raised in Southern California, Jeff understands the class differences between the wealthy and affluent who live in gated communities and the other half that struggle to survive each day. The needs of these communities are often overlooked, and their voices go unheard, mainly because they have no one fighting for them. Attorney Jeff is the man for these people, taking on cases that no one else will. He doesn’t care if his clients are poor; he only cares about the quality of their lives and whether they have been treated fairly.
“The hardest thing to watch is someone giving up because it was too expensive for them,” Jeff says. “There are a lot of people who deserve justice.” This idea drove him into law school and led him to a law firm led by an older gentleman. After his internship, he joined a corporate law firm, but that felt like he was in a new world. Not only were the lawyers in the firm lazy, but they were also unhappy in their jobs. This made Jeff’s purpose clearer in his mind, prompting him to branch out and establish his firm where he would gratefully serve people.
With offices in Downey, El Monte, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Pomona, Jeff now seeks justice for people who have no one else to turn to. He believes these people deserve to be treated fairly and compensated for their harm because of another’s negligence or carelessness. He gladly helps them navigate this complex process to get what they rightfully deserve: justice. Jeff takes cases on contingency, meaning you don’t have to pay anything upfront for his services. From car and motorcycle accidents to slip and fall accidents, JLF is a firm for all victims.
