  • Barbara J. King

    I have worked closely with Jen in the family and matrimonial department for years, both at Tully Rinckey and before. Jen has an easy going demeanor that puts clients at ease, but she is aggressive enough to advocate for what her clients want and need. Jen has the combination of qualities that it takes to be an effective family law attorney: compassion and strength - qualities that are indispensable in this line of work.

  • Thomas James Carr

    Jennifer Corcoran is one great family law attorney. She has a knack for getting to the core of the issue and understanding what can be done on her client’s behalf. Soft-spoken yet tough, Jen is someone I wouldn’t want to be on the other side of in a case.
