    To most, attorneys are a dime a dozen, hewn from the same incorrigible, high-handed cloth. But if you want a down-to-earth, intelligent, compassionate, and eminently capable legal representative, than you've done right, if you’ve come to Attorney Jennifer Gibbs. Whether it is an employment matter, a family matter for sensitive issues of divorce, custody, and support, or a general contract dispute, one thing is for certain: Jennifer leads with a firm but caring hand and gives 100% for her clients and their cause. She exudes patience and acknowledges clients' need to tell their story, without letting the emotions get in the way of understanding one's rights or expectations of results. Jennifer seeks knowledge from others when she needs it, and provides same to any and all who ask. Attorneys with Jennifer's moral character, humility, and competency are few and far between. I am honored not only to have called her co-counsel over the years, but to be able to call her friend.

    Jennifer is a super competent attorney who I worked with as opposing counsel on a family law matter. She was professional in discussing issues between our clients and worked diligently in achieving a fair resolution. I hope that I have the opportunity to work with her again.
