What do prosecutors think of Richard Jensen's skill as a criminal lawyer?
Here's what one prosecutor wrote to Richard recently after a felony jury trial:

"I also wanted to let you know that I was impressed  with your preparation. You were without a doubt the most prepared lawyer I have ever dealt with in a courtroom. I always try  to learn from other lawyers and I noticed that your case law guided your case and defense better than  I have ever seen.
"I also admired the way you anticipated all the issues in the case and was ready to support your  side immediately. This case was like "trench  warfare" and every inch of ground was earned. The  way I see it, this case was like a prize fight that it is hard to tell who won, because at the end, everybody ended up in the hospital.
"In many ways,  that is how trial work should be.
"So, my hat is off to you!
 "Well Done, Sir!"
What do judges think of Richard Jensen's skill as a criminal lawyer?
Here's a text a judge sent to Richard during a murder trial:
"I'm enjoying the good lawyering, and I respect you... Your voir dire was excellent.
"I have the utmost respect for you. What a tough case you tried all week, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching you in action."
What do jurors think of Richard Jensen's skill as a criminal lawyer? 
Here is what jurors who voted not guilty in a murder trial wrote to Richard:
"You are an exceptional lawyer. Your words and cross examination of witnesses were spot on. We all should be so lucky to have a person as thorough and driven as you are with your client. The pleasure was all ours being able to watch experts such as you... work for the people of our communities." - JKU
"It was a very difficult case to hear.. I was honestly able to make a fair and honest decision based solely on the evidence and testimony... It was my first time in a courtroom and I became enthralled with every aspect.. to watch you and your team present your case was very interesting to witness." - BH

Required by Alabama law: These recoveries and testimonials are not an indication of future results. Every case is different, and regardless of what friends, family, or other individuals may say about what a case is worth, each case must be evaluated on its own facts and circumstances as they apply to the law. The  valuation of a case depends on the facts, the injuries, the jurisdiction, the venue, the witnesses, the parties, and the testimony, among other factors.  Furthermore,no representation is made that the quality of legal services to be performed is greater than the services of other lawyers.
