This attorney was chosen as the Adoption Inspector for my daughter's step-parent adoption. She was extremely easy to work with and very informative on the procedures throughout the adoption. She even talked to my daughter to explain what would happen at the adoption hearing to help her make the decision as to whether or not my daughter would attend the hearing. Her legal secretary (forgive me if this is not her title) that answers the phone was also very informative and answered the many, many questions I had regarding the hearing and the paperwork that was necessary to complete the adoption. If I had to do it all over again, I would have chosen Ms. Evans as MY attorney as she was more informative than my actual attorney. They return all calls quickly and were a pleasure to work with. I have already recommended her to a friend and will continue to do so.

I went through four years during a custody battle with my neices' mom who lost custody due to personal problems. Ms. Evans was always professional and I could always depend on her. She gave good advice and suggestions on how to get and keep custody. These were the hardest four years of my life. But having an attorney like Ms. Evans made my life easier.

We have had Ms. Evans on retainer and as an attorney for three years in the Juvenile Court system of Paulding County. She and her assistant answered all of our questions up front before retaining her. She was punctual on every court case. She is very knowledgeable on juvenile cases. She went up against a determined crooked attorney and stood her ground. She is not arguementative to the judge or court. She lays down the facts, uses witnesses, and her knowledge of the court system to win. And win she did. Ms. Evans was recommended to us by a Assistant Judge and we are so glad that the Judge did. Our family appreciates all that Ms. Evans has done for us and our grand daughter. The opposing side lied and brought false witness against us and she did all she could to prove them wrong.
Our family will definitely use Ms. Evans again should the occasion arise in the future.

I went to see Jana Evans at a very difficult time in my life and she took total advantage of me and stole $6000 from me in the process. I was considering divrocing my husband because he was verbally abusive. I had not yet decided what I was going to do, but went to see her to discuss my options. She convinced me to give her a retainer while I was there. I asked her if I would be able to the money back, less the amount I owed for the consultation, and she said she would refund any remaining funds. Things with my husband changed and I contacted her office and told her I had decided to stay with him. I asked her to refund my money and she said she didn't owe me anything. All I had done was meet with her on one occasion for about 2 hours and it cost me $6000. She did nothing to earn the money. She has refused to give it back and it has been 3 years now. BEWARE...she is a CROOK. Do not trust her.
