Review Jane Probst
  • Child custody and support.

    Hired attorney

    I was very disappointed with her representation every step of the way. She was never prepared, little to no communication and completely over charged me. I ended up settling just to end my case and avoid continuing to pay her for doing a whole lot of nothing.

    Jane E Probst’s response: “It is not coincidental that a review such as this would appear when an attorney attempts to collect a fee owed and his or her monthly bills have have recently been sent out. Many people do not appreciate the fact that law firms have overhead that must be paid. I.e. Payroll, rent, insurance. Further, my office and I take pride in our communication and preparation. Unfortunately, many clients believe that inadequate communication is a lack of an immediate response to emails at 3:00 am. We actually need to sleep occasionally. The statement as to settlement is a bit ironic. Many attorneys may say that I do not settle often enough. I am never afraid to take a case to trial if there is a better possibility of obtaining a better result for a client. However, we are lawyers, not magicians. We need to work with the facts presented to us. Sometimes, we learn during the process that our clients have not been forthright with us which damages our ability to effectively advocate a client's case. Many times, the cost and risk of trial far exceed the merits of settlement. Each case is different. It is necessary to balance the two to choose the best result for a client. Many clients want "the fight" and have unrealistic expectations. "The fight" may sometimes end up resulting in a worse result to the client. I have no idea who wrote this review because no client has recently contacted me to discuss a matter such as this. If client has a complaint, my staff and I are always willing to discuss the matter to see if we can make things right or better explain. Unfortunately, in child custody cases, there is often "buyer's remorse" once the case is over and friends and family have input. I would appreciate it if the writer of this review contacted my office directly to see if we can address his or her concerns directly, rather than in a public forum that will not address the client's individual issues.”

    Hired attorney

    Ethical .. straight forward ... honest ... immensely hard working ... communicative ... experienced ... Jane Probst is a stellar attorney of the highest caliber. She is knowledgeable and current in her areas of practice, does the due diligence necessary to learn a client's case in detail in order to clearly communicate her thoughts and the reasons behind her advice/strategy. She actively listens, taking the time that her clients need in order to answer questions and provide clarity. She genuinely cares about the people with whom she works; her actions back up the excellent reputation that she has earned both within the legal community and with her clients. When presented with the details of our specific situation, it was evident that Ms. Probst spent hours reviewing our information. Her advice to us was in our best interest (as one would hope...) and was not about the proverbial bottom dollar. The time that Ms. Probst spent on our case saved us thousands of dollars and months of potential escalation with the opposing side/counsel /court system. I have the utmost respect for Attorney Probst and recommend her with absolute confidence. It is how she came recommended to me ... Thank you.

    I had used Jane once in the past to write up a pre-nup. A couple of years later when issues arose with my ex, I returned to Jane for her advice. What we both expected to be a simple matter taken care of within 30 days, blew into 18 month of legal bullying from my ex and his lawyer. Through it all, Jane remained professional, supportive, and informative. She tried multiple different ways to resolve things without involving the courts or driving up my legal fees but in the end when opposing counsel left us no other choice, we went into court. Jane's personal and professional knowledge of the family court process, the judges, court commissioners, and their supporting staff all made a huge impact when we went to court. She was able to prepare me for what to do and say that would make a positive impact on the courts and boy was she right. Not only did my ex get scolded by the court, but his attorney as well. However all along Jane knew exactly how things would play out and her confidence meant I could sit back and relax. At times I felt like I was talking to a friend, not just my attorney. While she is extremely competent and knowledgeable as an attorney, she is kind, friendly, and truly cared about my family which made it even more of a pleasure to work with her. If I ever need to use an attorney again, Jane will be my first call.

    Jane Probst handled my divorce in fall of 2014 and finalized in spring of 2015. She explained everything she was going to do in detail and did exactly that. I felt as if I was working more with a friend rather a lawyer just looking for money. Her rates were very acceptable as well. I would definitely recommend Jane to anyone because she is very professional and cares about what your going through. Numerous times she would ask if I was doing ok. Thanks again Jane for your outstanding work and for helping me through this difficult time.

She knows family law & childrens law, guardianship issues, can handle COMPLEX issues with ease!! We knew we were in good hands.Keeps you up to date & informed every step of the way.
    We started out with a nightmare of an attorney who botched our case, caused delays..and setbacks missed opportunities and Jane was able to hop on board..fix and repair the damages and lead us to a victorious outcome.

    Jane Probst is a no nonsense lawyer that doesnt take crap from anyone who doesnt sugarcoat the truth and gets the job done right the first time. I actually felt sorry for her opposing attorney when she mopped the courtroom floor with his inflated ego ( Poor Bastard).

    Coming from a construction background where you dont mince words, Its hard to find a lawyer to cut through all the BS and lead you to where you need to go even though you may be thinking to yourself, "What in the hell is going on??" Thats true talent that cannot be taught. Its a gift.

    She has a cunning ability to listen, decipher, and turn it into actions to win. But as we all know in divorce, there are no winners, just different levels of losing and Jane turns all of this into a positive along with her unbelievable staff and her Godsend, Sebrina. What an amazing human being filled with compassion, Love and sometimes the all too honest truth we cant handle all the time. (Thanks Sebrina)

    Jane and her staff are always on top of their game even when I felt all the chips were lost, they pursued and continued to fight, becoming increasingly aggressive and boy did it pay off. Just like with anything in life, you get what you pay for.
    The sweetness of low price, is long forgotten with the bitterness of poor quality!!

    I would say youd be hard pressed to find a more aggressive lawyer and Paralegal who know when to listen and when to shove back. Finally a lawyer with style, class, panache, and a a bad ass attitude when needed... Kudos

    Mrs. Probst provided me with legal service tailored for more needs. When I had issues getting the the partied served I sought out legal help. Mrs Probst handled all of the serving issues providing me with unique services to meet my needs. She navigated the court system for me and was able to help me gain full custody of my son. I felt that she represented me in a professional and utmost compassionate manner. Not only did Mrs. Probst help me gain full custody of my son who was in unsafe conditions she also helped me understand how the legal system works and was also able to help me get back past due child support. With Mrs Probst help my son is now in a stable environment . I recommend anyone in family court utilize her services.

    Very professional and knowledgeable. I was seeking legal advice on an family adoption situation and she answered all my questions on the phone. I felt very confident with my situation. I actually had a schedule phone appointment with Jane next week, but she called me early when her schedule opened up. I missed her first phone call but she called back the next day. The office staff was also very pleasant. I am very happy and satisfied with the service I got with Jane today. I would highly recommend Jane! Thank you Jane.
