We will be addressing some of the many issues commonly faced within the Jamaican diaspora in New York and other States which can be dealt with right here in New York.   Many people cannot get to Jamaica just to deal with a legal matter that does not require a court appearance and would prefer an office here where they can meet with an attorney face to face from time to time. 

Our office here in the New York, provides some of these services and is an interface with the Jamaican legal system addressing some of these issues.  Patrick O. Forrester, Esq. practices both in New York and Jamaica and is in Jamaica each month dealing with client matters in the Kiingston office.  We are trusted by our clients and our colleagues and known to constantly provide our clients with feedback and proper accounting.
