I have had the opportunity to be represented by Ms. Jennings for both criminal and civil cases. I have always had positive results. On a DUI case, she made sure they didn't take away my license and the case was ultimately dropped despite a very aggressive prosecutor. She has also ensured favorable outcomes with my child support and custody cases. All in all, she clearly cares about getting what is best for those that she represents. I consider myself fortunate to have her in my corner.
Barbara Jennings appeared to court late several times and was chatised by the judge each time. She was NEVER prepared. She relied on my family and friends to gather evidence for the case. Her personal appearance was not professional. She seemed more interested in collecting her attorney's fees rather than collecting evidence. I would not recommend Barbara Jennings to represent my worst enemy. You would be better off with a public defender! !!!!
She talks a good game, but when push came down to shove, she didn't win. Despite the party bringing a criminal charge having no evidence and my having any reasonable expected evidence, she seemed to be expecting to lose and did! The county prosecuter spent incredible amounts of County resources and paid fast and loose with the law. For instance, I was served with an uncompleted search warrant, goods unrelated to my case were conficated and the police did not allow Ms. Jennings to be present during the search, holding her in her car a few hundred feet away while they ransacked my house. While Ms. Jennings mentioned the uncompleted warrant in Court, she appeared not to feel it was worth pursuing when the Judge did not throw out the evidence and the actions of the police were not even mentioned. To her credit once the acusing party had gotten my dog (they killed it after three weeks), she did keep them from acevding their real goal, swindling me out of my house, cars and what little money I still had after paying her and other attorneys for their "help". I should also point out that she did assure me that in Georgia that you are "guilty by accusation", despite the retoric said by the Judges.
