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.
