"Jeff was referred to me over two years ago because of his expertise in estate litigation and I have been very pleased with his extensive knowledge of estate law. Jeff became familiar with several complex matters in a very limited time frame which was critical. I know that I am not Jeff’s only client; but he makes me feel as though I am. My calls and emails are always promptly answered. He consistently answers my questions thoroughly but succinctly. He only contacts me when there is essential information to communicate. These efficient and effective communications between us have kept my legal expenses to a minimum while simultaneously making timely progress on my estate matters. I would not hesitate to recommend Jeff as an estate law attorney."

"Jeff is an excellent attorney and an even better person. I have been working with Jeff on complicated trust and estate matters, and simply put, he has great judgment, on both the “hard” legal issues, but also the “soft” relational issues, which are oftentimes more important. I greatly respect his Christian faith, which I share. For me, it is very important to be equally yoked with such an important advisor and counselor. And he is a big and tough guy, which could also come in handy!"

Charles Preston


"I have known Jeff Knebel for over 13 years and worked with him on various legal matters throughout that timeframe. Jeff is a man of high character and integrity. He consistently performs his legal duties at a top level with utmost diligence and tenacity. It’s clear that his faith is a cornerstone of his foundation from which all his other virtues prevail. My family has been fortunate to have Jeff in our lives on many levels, and it has been a privilege to know him and work with him."

"I have been a client and have known Jeff Knebel for several years now. Being faced with very complex legal matters is scary and stressful, so I knew I needed a first string attorney. After spending a significant amount of time searching for an attorney in South Texas to represent me, I was fortunate to find Jeff. He is absolutely one of the best! His legal acumen, professionalism, and expertise is tremendous. Just as important to me, is that he cares. Having a good attorney is one thing, but having one that you can trust, and is calming in the worst of times, is rare. Having spent many years as an executive in the Fortune 500 world dealing with legal matters of all types, my vetting process is tough. After being so impressed with Jeff, I felt compelled to publicly share, for the first time, my personal thoughts about Jeff, particularly for those that may have uncertainty with the difficult task of finding a top tier attorney you can trust."
