Jenice and her staff are all excellent - highly responsive, answer as many questions as you have in a way that you can understand, are very patient, sympathetic to your situation, and make you feel comfortable during a difficult and stressful time. I never once had to follow up - they always came to me to keep me updated by phone and mail. I highly recommend them.
Jenice Malecki is a remarkable attorney. In 2008 Our world (financially) came crashing down on us. We had sought her advice regarding our investment firm and and financial advisor. She was very attentive to every detail and went to great lengths to get to the bottom of our troubles. She communicated with us regularly and kept us informed throughout the entire process. Thorough would be an understatement. She is a true professional. Her preparedness for our case was beyond reproach. We were extremely satisfied with the way our case was handled and its outcome.
I worked with Jenice and her team to successfully resolve a brokerage / securities related issue for an elder relative and was quite pleased with how they walked us through the process and took into account the challenges that age sometimes unfortunately present. They were all professional - and effective. I would use them again without question if the need arose.
I haven't formally retained Jenice (yet), so not sure about the usefulness of this recommendation, but Jenice was kind enough to share some valuable insights on restrictive covenants and its potential consequences on my startup business. I was impressed not only by her professional expertise, but how quickly she comprehended my particular situation and applied common sense to her opinions. Also, I truly appreciated her readiness to spend ample time discussing the issues, allowing me to get a solid, broad understanding of the restrictive covenants landscape. She gained my full trust and I wouldn't hesitate a second appointing her my attorney, if needed.
Jenice is truly a rock star! My wife and I contacted her to help with a quick-turn-around closing on our apartment. Fast, friendly, and fabulously informed about the process and what we'd need to stay on track to close on time, Jenice never skipped a beat. She's a dedicated attorney that goes above and beyond for her clients. Honestly, what more could you ask for?
Ms. Malecki is the consummate professional. Her understanding of the legal issues and court tactics are nothing less than outstanding. She always promptly responded to any concerns I had and took the time to explain complicated legal issues.
Jenice provided sound legal advice for my coop closing - she always responded in a timely fashion, was extremely knowledgeable with respect to any legal issues that arose, and was extremely professional at the closing - I was extremely pleased with using her law firm to close on the sale of my apartment.
Ms. Malecki defended a commercial litigation case for my client, and did a very professional job. Her motion practice was direct and she was honest with the client regarding the merits of the various issues involved. She was professionally courteous but also held her ground with opposing counsel as required. Her billing estimates were accurate as well, which was greatly appreciated in order to make appropriate business decisions.
This attorney is attractive and personable . . . But don't let that fool you . . . She is also extremely knowledgable and tough when necessary. She is a great negotiator and she gets great results even when you think that no results are even possible. She always makes herself available to speak to you by phone no matter how often you may call her. She is also very honest, which I discovered by way of expense retainers. Other attorneys that I dealt with in the past, once you give them a retainer, it's gone, even if they only used half of it (which you'll never know) however, Ms Malecki does not hide expenses; if she didn't spend all of your retainer, you'll get back what she didn't use. Her staff is also easy to work with.
Jenice was very unresponsive. She agreed to represent me at a real estate closing but never responded to my emails. When I finally had enough and informed her that I decided to change attorney due to the lack of response (my closing was in 7 days), her response was "OK". Save your time and money and don't even bother using her.
