Had a previous attorney who told me to settle my case without me even having visitation with my son. I went to Ms. McKinnish and thank the Lord everyday that I did. I now have my son most of the time and am the primary parent. My wife's attorney talked a big talk until Ms. McKinnish showed the attorney what we planned to do at trial. The other attorney caved the next day! Just put my son to bed in his own room down the hall from my own thanks to Ms. McKinnish

Ms. McKinnish handled my child custody case. I had had a bad experience with a local attorney and Ms. McKinnish came in and cleaned up my last attorney's mess. I ended up with custody of my boys because of Ms. McKinnish. She was kind and personable with me and my family but was a bulldog when we went to Court. Ms. McKinnish was great about explaining things to me in a way I could understand. I only wish she had been my first attorney and not my last so that I wouldnt have missed so much time with my boys.

This is probably the worst atty that I have ever encountered. I did all of the work for my divorce and called her to tell her what my ex and I had agreed upon and a wk later I would get a bill charging me for the work I had done. She did not return any phone calls. She never did what she promised to do. I was without child support for over a year and my children and I had it very rough. On mediation day she was over an hr late and my case started without me having any representation. When she did get there all she was concerned about was flirting with the other atty. She continued to talk to me about other clients cases and talked to the mediator in front of me about other people's cases. During the yr that she was my atty she had 3 different paralegals. I spoke with one of them after she left the firm and she said that she couldn't handle it anymore because Jennifer never did anything she had promised her clients and they would call or show up mad. The day of my divorce she showed up to court 32 mins late and laughed when she got there saying she was at the gym. She is romantically involved with her partner and her head is there. It's definitely not into her work. Please do not use her as an atty. She is absolutely horrible.
