    Judy is the best!

    I hired Judy when I got out of the military and relocated back to the local area to be with my son who was in the physical custody of his dad. She took my case and was ready to work for me. She never made any promises she could not keep and never gave me any unrealistic expectations. She fought for me at every hearing and she gave me sound advice on how to proceed outside of my feelings. She never backed down for the opposing party attorney and in the end, she won my case. I got what I was seeking, more time with my son. I would recommend her to anyone searching for an excellent family law attorney.

    Divorce Case

    I would highly recommend Judith Gillett to anyone going through a divorce or separation. She was very knowledgable about family law, provided expert guidance and advice, and was very responsive to me. During my recent separation and divorce, I most valued her straightforward, yet caring approach to my situation. Divorce is a highly emotional process and there were many times when I struggled with looking out for my own best interests. Judith listened, showed empathy, but consistently applied logic and reason. I never felt pressured, rather, she often simply helped me see the short- and long-term implications of the decisions I was making. Having a lawyer so knowledgable about family law, coupled with a caring attitude, helped me through one of the most difficult periods of my life.

    Amazing Lawyer

    Ms. Gillett has hands down been the best lawyer I have ever encountered. Not only did she get to know me on a personal and professional level to help my case , but she went above and beyond all my expectations. She was there for me through out the entire process and made me feel completely at ease. I found it refreshing that everything was stored electronically and that made it so easy to access information. I could text her and she would always respond no matter what the time. It was wonderful having her there for me 24/7.I never had any trouble reaching her . I was deeply impressed with her accurate knowledge of the legal system and she never failed to amaze me. I would reccomend her to everyone.

    Be careful

    I would definitely not recommend Judy. She didn’t do any of the things that she agreed to do when I hired her. She missed important legal deadlines in my case that made my case worse. She practically never answered her phone, her voicemail was always full, and she barely ever called me back. When she did respond to me it was through long text messages that required me to write long text messages back to her, which I didn’t care for. I sent her about 100 supporting documents for my case but she told me on 2 different occasions that her computer crashed and she lost everything I sent her. She wasn’t knowledgeable about any laws regarding my case and she never researched laws that would help my case (to the best of my knowledge). I called her looking for an attorney and I was prepared to spend money on an attorney, but when we first met to discuss my case she said she just wanted to have lunch between friends. She tried to become my friend as an excuse to not do any work on my case, I think. If you are looking for a new friend who happens to be an incompetent lawyer, then I would call her. But if you want an attorney that will help you legally, I don’t recommend her.

    Strategic Lawyer

    Ms. Gillett helped me get over a divorce 3 months ago and I was completely satisfied. She is an "outside the box" thinker, very caring and knowledgeable. She displayed professionalism and followed through with all requests. I felt she was by myself the entire process and It was such a breath of fresh air meeting her in the midst of my dispair. I would recommend her!!

    Excellent Attorney - Highly Recommended

    Ms. Gillett is an excellent attorney. She went above and beyond for me and my family. She is very professional, knowledgeable, and has many years experience. She will explain the situtation in terms we can understand, discuss strategy, and strongly fight for her clients.

    Dedicated to Her Clients....

    Ms. Gillette is an amazing and compassionate attorney, dedicated to her clients. She recently assisted my son-in-law with custody of his 6 year old son and ‘We Won’. My grandson is currently residing with his father and both are very excited with the outcome of custody. Ms. Gillette knew from the beginning of the case that my grandson would be in a much better environment living with his father. End result, father and son are sharing everyday, every moment and look forward to his childhood together.

    Ms. Gillette worked very closely with my son-in-law during the one year process and her response to phone calls, emails, etc., was always in a timely fashion. Additionally, she accepted payments from my son-in-law for her fees, which is just not done by other attorneys these days…. It’s her dedication and commitment to her clients that makes her ‘who she is today’.

    Again, thanks to Ms. Gillette, my grandson is living in a home full of Love, Respect and Commitment to their new family. Without her, we are not sure what the outcome of this little boy’s life would be. There are not enough words to say or share that can express our sincere thanks and appreciation for her efforts and dedication in this case.

    Very Disappointed.

    Ms. Gillett does not respond to emails, phone calls, or in other manners. She did not respond to my other lawyer or to the court as well. I cannot recommend her to anyone.

    Judith Adrienne Gillett’s response: “I genuinely appreciate feedback, both positive and negative, from my clients. I take their thoughts, impressions, and opinions very seriously. I feel compelled, however, to address the factually incorrect comments left by this reviewer. In March and April of this year, I was very seriously (and unexpectedly) ill, requiring two lengthy hospital stays. Although I endeavored to timely reply to all client inquiries during that miserable time, I was completely incapacitated due to illness. That said, I never missed a court deadline or appearance, I never failed to respond to a court inquiry (I practice in a small county and the local judges were aware that I was ill and hospitalized), nor was any client ever in any jeopardy as a result of my illness. Furthermore, I responded to this client's new attorney immediately upon my receiving an email from him (I know who left this review, as I only lost two clients as a result of my illness). Although two clients were unhappy with my performance as a result of my illness, most were genuinely concerned about my health, and overwhelmingly supportive and understanding (including offers to babysit my children, provide meals for my family, etc.). I pride myself on promptly returning client phone calls, and being overall quickly accessible to my clients. All of my clients have my cellular telephone number, and know that they can reach me (even when I am in court on another matter) by texting me, in the event of an urgent matter. Additionally, I regularly respond immediately to after-hours texts and emails from clients. I have a small practice (by choice) and I am very selective of the clients I represent. I keep my practice small to allow me to give every client as much attention as possible. I do not advertise my services, (I do not even have a yellow-pages listing) relying entirely on client referrals and word of mouth. Nonetheless, my practice is thriving. I believe that I can safely represent that, overall, my clients are pleased with my dedication and determination to achieve the best possible outcome for them (please see my other reviews). I genuinely regret having left a bad impression on two previous clients, and hope that their experience with me does not leave them with a bad overall impression of the profession or the court system.”

    Wonderful lawyer

    Dear Mrs. Gillett,
    Please allow me to start by saying thank you for all that you did for our daughter during her custody case. We could never have made it through this without you. Your knowledge of the law and professionalism helped us to win our case. You knew exactly what the judge needed and you made it happen. I am so glad we met you that day in the court house. Because of you our granddaughter is living in a stable house with her mom. We will highly recommend you to anyone needing legal assistance. Again, thank you for all that you have done.

    Sincerely,

    Mr. and Mrs. Michael H.
