  • Greg Fidlon

    Jeanne is an exceptional attorney. She brings a rare blend of strong advocacy, kindness, compassion and creativity to the table. These strengths allow her to be effective in cases that other lawyers might be inclined to turn down. She is also very pleasant and easy to talk to, which makes her a pleasure to work with.

  • Clare Michaud

    Ms. Hipes is one of the smartest lawyers I have ever worked with. I was impressed by the depth of her experience and her openness to using and developing new negotiating techniques. She is one of the few lawyers I know who has mastered the art of staying professional while strongly advocating for her client. She is personable. Not only do I enjoy working with her, I would hire her if I needed an employment lawyer.
