Thank you very much for the quick work Simon! I hope too we have the opportunity to work together again.
Our organization hired Simon to assist in several sensitive legal issues in the founding of a non-profit organization structure. Simon was able to quickly analyze our needs and work with our organization efficiently and discreetly. I highly recommend Simon for any legal matter large or small. His integrity, broad knowledge and excellent interpersonal relations make him an outstanding resource.
As for Simon, I have known him since he was a child. He is an excellent, diligent and honest lawyer. He is blessed with a good brain and even though he is persistent on behalf of his clients, he is not antagonistic unless he has to be. I strongly recommend him. He works like lightning. He is also a notary. Try him. You’ll be glad you did.
Advocate Simon Jackson has been my lawyer for the past 6 years. He has handled a range of issues from those that required great subtlety to those concerning significant business dealings. He has acted with outstanding competence and integrity in every situation. His rapport with clients is truly extraordinary; he is fully consultative whilst giving straightforward advice, unaltered by what the client may want to hear. I recommend Advocate Jackson unreservedly and would be more than glad to deliver this recommendation personally to any who might wish to call me. Ari Dale,MDA 02-994-7693
Simon assisted me with a personal legal matter requiring expert knowledge of English and Hebrew. As both translator and attorney, Simon comes highly recommended. I have also known Simon on a personal level for many years. As well as being a very talented lawyer, he is a knowledgeable, trustworthy and, above all, friendly individual who is a pleasure to work with.
I retained Simon for some legal work. In addition to providing valuable advice, he was accessible, pleasant and professional. His rates were very fair. I would use Simon again and am happy to recommend him to others.
I have worked with Simon for several years now, and have found him to be a skilled professional guided by the highest standards of quality, precision and integrity, while also being friendly and a pleasure to work with on a personal level. I’ve learned a great deal from him during our work together. I would recommend (and have recommended) Simon to clients unhesitatingly.
It was an excellent job. Everyone involved was extremely impressed and had only minor changes. I had the most – mainly stylistic. You will find the final text attached for your interest. Thank you again for the fine work. Dear Micky, please find attached the bill for the translator’s work. As you know, he did an excellent job, on a difficult piece and within an extremely short period of time.
