  • Angelo Langadakis III

    Jennifer goes "beyond the call of duty" in her work. She's both a thoughtful and brilliant attorney, and any client would be in good hands with her on their side on matrimonial matters. The field of matrimonial law is a high-conflict battlefield, both between the parties, and between the parties and their attorneys. Malpractice insurances place attorneys in a "high risk" category by recognizing the reality that: (i) emotionally charged cash-strapped clients will likely raise frivolous or exaggerated complaints against their attorneys as a result of sticker shock over the amount of legal fees, and (ii) people in failed relationships are, more likely than not, conflict-seeking, high-conflict personalities, unreasonable, or have some other personality disorder traits predisposing them to conflict and failures in their personal relationships with people in general. Nevertheless, despite those challenges, Jennifer is a professional in every sense of the word. I confidently endorse her
