  • Excellent Lawyer.

    Hired attorney

    You will not find a more determined, hard-working, compassionate attorney in Alabama than Ms. Jacquelyn Tomlinson. Based on my experiences with her I believe that she sets a very high standard for her client-focused practice. Ms. Tomlinson has a way of putting her clients at ease during their difficult legal situations while providing competent and clever legal counsel. Ms. Tomlinson skillfully handled my legal issue and I was thrilled with the results she was able to achieve. Ms. Tomlinson made herself available to me whenever possible to discuss my case, even working nights, weekends and holidays to ensure my case was handled properly. I would recommend Ms. Tomlinson to anyone who finds himself or herself needing a domestic-relations attorney.

    Hired attorney

    This attorney has the least respected reputation amongst he colleagues in Alabama. Nonetheless, my son decided to recruit her services prior to his deployment. She was very disrespectful, pompous, arrogant, promised him unrealistic and unattainable results, which she never made good on. Had we known then what we know now, we would have chosen a more highly respected legal counselor. She is flaky and seemingly lacks abilify to follow through and make intelligent decisions. Wish my grand babies were at home with their mamaw instead of living with their controlling mother. Not to mention the fact my son pays an outrageous amount of child support that he can barely afford his own care.

    Jacquelyn Diane Tomlinson’s response: “This is an edited post – my original posting could have been misconstrued as indicating that Lenoir was a client of The Isaak Law Firm and in particular attorney Melissa Isaak. The facts were similar to a post I was made aware on her Avvo page. In hindsight I can see how one could reasonably determine that if this was not my client that it could be one of The Isaak firm and in fairness I have removed my post. I have checked all cases at my firm and the name and fact pattern do not relate to any clients I have assisted. Avvo does not verify client reviews. In my statements I was simply indicating that this was not my client. Unfortunately there are a certain number of mistakes people make in providing reviews and sometimes that leads to a review that is not indicative of someone’s true work.”
  • Exceptional in every respect. Confident, conscientious, (no kidding, a conscientious lawyer), totally engaged in every aspect.

    Hired attorney

    J was my second lawyer after firing an incompetent one. The difference was from false unachievable promises and constant billing to a level of personal integrity and knowledge of what had happenen that wouldn't allow her to bill me for any additional hours! Tell me about any lawyer you have ever heard of taking that kind of action. She knew my sons name, was genuinely concerned about him, and even wanted to attend his football games. Communicating on weekends, late evenings, and basically anytime needed; I had her contact numbers so she made herself available 24/7. In the end, after a grueling eight plus hours of mediation, i walked away with a fair settlement for the ex as well as myself. But heres the kicker: something almost unheard of, especially in Alabama, I was given seventy-five percent custody of my son, only subject to change after a professional psychologist determined my son had recovered enough from his mothers adultery and multiple abandonments. She argued for my sons case, not mine which was a brillant and very successful strategy. He still struggles but we are starting to see his old happy go lucky personality return. His grades are coming back, my son is coming back. Jacquelyn made that happen! So would I recommend her?! Only if you want the best; if you want the best outcome for you and yours; only if you want to win!

    Attorney Jacquelyn Tomlinson was simply amazing. She really proved to me that not only my case was important but so were my children. She was also willing to listen and provide me with solid advice to help me handle any situation that might have arose. Attorney Tomlinson helped me get through a very difficult time in my life and I could not have asked for a more professional, dedicated and hard working attorney. I would recommend her over and over again. Thank you Attorney Tomlinson for everything that you did for me. A real life saver.

    Consulted attorney

    I experienced Atty Tomlinson through custody court. When trying to contact her she was very sarcastic unwilling to discuss the case with me and in court immediately sided with the father attorney. Needless to say they were friends. I would never recommend her services to anyone. Her best interest was definitely not the child but rather the father.

    Jacquelyn Diane Tomlinson’s response: “I appreciate all comments to this site both positive and negative. As there are far more positive than negative, we all can learn from constructive criticism. I wish that this individual would have left a name so that I could possible place this case, which I cannot, as this sounds very uncharacteristic of me or our firm. That being said, as a lawyer and Guardian ad Litem, I listen to all facts from all parties and perform my job with the utmost respect, professionalism and candor to the court.”

    First, let me note that Jacquelyn has now opened her own practice, DELK & TOMLINSON, on Carmichael Road in Montgomery. Her new offices are beautifully decorated and make her clients feel comfortable and at ease (I speak from experience). Jacquelyn has been my personal attorney for several years and I simply would not use anyone else. Her commitment to her clients is second to none. Her work ethic is second to none. And, her care and concern for the needs of her clients motivates her to work extremely hard on a daily basis. Jacquelyn has helped me with several matters and I obtained very favorable results each time. Her intelligence and calm nature in dealing with these stressful legal matters is just what we men (and women) need in our times of distress. I am an attorney myself (and I think a pretty good one) but I would not want to see her name as counsel for the opposing party in any case. Jacquelyn is a wonderful person but she will fight like a bulldog for her clients. She returns messages quickly, is easy to reach, and truly wants to help her clients obtain justice. It is obvious from the moment that you begin to consult with Jacquelyn that helping her clients obtain the most favorable result possible is her goal; it is not in her character to simply go through the motions so she can make a few dollars. Her new law partner, Dana Delk, is much like Jacquelyn in the way she practices law and I wouldn't hesitate to use her services if Jacquelyn was for some reason unavailable. Do yourself a favor. If you have any domestic relations issues and you need a lawyer, call DELK & TOMLINSON. I can promise you that you won't be sorry you did. You will not find a better and more caring and committed advocate anywhere.

    Divorce has been the most painful, stressful and hardest thing I've ever gone through in my life to date. Attorney Jacquelyn Tomlinson has stuck by my side and was available and prompt to respond to every question and concern I had. There is no question she take's my case seriously and through this stressful time I find peace of mind knowing I've got a great attorney who has my best interest at heart! I would strongly recommend anyone looking at divorce to contact Delk & Tomlinson, LLC!

  • THE BEST!!!!

    Posted by Nic

    Jacquelyn is by far the best and easiest attorney to work with. She fought hard for my case, kept me informed, personally checked on me to see how I was handling the case, constantly reassured me that I would keep my daughter and guess what, I still have my daughter. Jacquelyn is very knowledgeable and a fireball in the court room. She will forever be my attorney because I trust and respect her. If anyone writes a bad review about her, please don't listen or take their advice because they haven't had her as an attorney.
    I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER!!!!!

    She did not keep me informed of my case, did not answer questions and did not evaluate my case before providing legal advice. She was sarcastic in her responses to me when I questioned her about various issues and had to threaten to call the bar association before I was given a refund. Did not seem to care at all about my case.

    Jacquelyn Diane Tomlinson’s response: “This does not appear to be a previous client of mine as none of this information is accurate. I have never had a client request a refund or threaten to contact the Alabama State Bar. As the individually failed to leave their name, it appears to be a comment left to simply tarnish my reputation.”
