AnnMarie Jenkins made what is supposed to be one the toughest experiences in life into an easy mostly pain free experience. She handled the situation with compassion and knowledge letting us proceed as slowly or quickly as we desired. I didn’t enter into my marriage ever anticipating going through a divorce process. As me and my soon to be ex-wife grew up from our twenties we also grew apart. This is not something that I took lightly and AnnMarie understood that. As I came up with more and more questions and probably asked the same question three different ways she gave me answers both based on experience and reality of the situation. Upon making the final decision to separate she helped me negotiate with the other party and both come to a mutual decision on some minor contested issues. She also understood the importance of me retaining custody/possession of my two dogs and wrote that as a stipulation not just as property but at least a little more. It was a big deal for me but isn’t in the eyes of the courts. AnnMarie helped keep this severance of marriage civil enough that there is no bad blood between my soon to be ex and I. The paperwork was completed quickly and concisely and needed no alterations and we hammered everything out in the first few conversations. The filling proceeded quickly as well. She is to represent me in the hearing required by my county and I have full faith that will continue to run as smoothly as everything else.

AnnMarie was our attorney while she was at another firm. She was one, not responsive; two, she did NOT keep up informed; and three, she did a terrible job representing us. Without going into the details, she represented us on a case with respect to an agreement. We got nothing out of the deal (at the trial), absolutely nothing. In fact after the trial, AnnMarie had the audacity to tell us that the agreement that represented us on is ambiguous and we needed to go back to court to make it clear. I don't know, but to me, that was her job in the first place. Which is, to ensure the agreement was clear and fair to both parties.
After all of the frustration with dealing with her, we called the founders of her firm and were informed that she was longer an employee. One good thing that came out of this entire ordeal was that the founder of her previous firm created documents for us at no charge because of the mess that AnnMarie created.

Ms. Jenkinson went above and beyond what I could have asked for in my divorce and time sharing. I would highly recommend her services for anyone in need of these types of services. I couldn't have asked for more.

AnnMarie was available with limited notice. After explaining my violation to her she was more than happy to accommodate my court date which was less than a week away. In court she knew what was expected and presented herself professionally and with authority. I plan on using her and/or law firm for all my needs.

Ann Marie handled my divorce case with professionalism and attentive care from start to finish. She consistently applied advocacy for my interests first, while maintaining respect and rapport with opposing counsel and all parties involved. Ann Marie was proactive in communication, both internally and externally, and sought to move the case forward without alterior motive. I felt that her bill rate and leverage model of Partner / staff effort were fair and efficient, and appreciated the level of transparency displayed through periodic reporting on incurred time and expenses. Also, her support staff (Frances and Andrew) were excellent to work with and went out of their way to assist with requests, often in last-minute scenarios.
Hopefully, none of my friends or close colleagues have to experience divorce as I did, however if they do I will not hesitate to recommend Ann Marie and the offices of Katz and Phillips.

AnnMarie was great to work with. She walked me through every step of the way. She was available to answer all my questions. She made sure I understood what would be occuring through my divorce and that I was comfortable with process. She worked for my best interests and kept a reasonable perspective on everything. I feel very fortunate to have found her as an attorney. I have recommened and will continue to recommend her.

Annmarie has been an amazing attorney for which I could not have asked for anyone better. She has handled my case with a tender heart and strong hand. She has taken complete and total control. She effectively shattered the negative effect that legal matters bring out in people and she has continued to handle my case with a strong standard of moral character. If you want a cut throat, unethical, no personality attorney then keep on looking. If you want an attorney that does the job right, and cares then stop looking because you have found your attorney. My family and my kids will be able to thank Annmarie for years to come. Thank you again.
