Jill was my second attorney in a 9-month divorce case and was truly a God-send. She always kept me informed, sent me updates, and was available for calls (or returned mine back within 24 hours) and she has a very professional and polite staff. With Jill I quickly became extremely relieved and confident of what the case outcome may be and in her ability to get it there due to her understanding of the law and in depth law experience. Jill was also EXCELLENT at diffusing stressful situations and in dealing with a very difficult opposing council, spouse, and client at times while she maintained a professional, respectful, and patient demeanor. I would definitely recommend her. Thanks for everything!!!
Jill was my second attorney in a 6 year custody case. Jill had to take the first year that I hired her working through my previous attorney's shortfalls. Walking into my final hearing, I was extremely confident in her ability to represent my case. Jill took the time to understand me, my child, and my case and always maintained a professional and respectful attitude while dealing with a difficult opposing counsel/client. Jill really did make a difficult time easier.
Even though my case took way too long, she always kept me informed, sent me updates when they got them, and if I had any questions I could call them and I would get a call back within 24 hours. Thank you for all your hard work!
Jill O'Connell is an impressive counseler. She was always quick to return phone calls and keep me informed. I can not say enough positive about this individual. I went through a horrible divorce. And Jill made things go as smoothly as possible. She took the time to listen to my story and my requests. She was truely a God send.
I found Jill in the Shepherd's Guide as I was seeking a lawyer that shared my beliefs and would have integrity. I was NOT disappointed. Jill was not only sensitive and understanding, but sharp, on top of her game, and willing to do her research to find the truth concerning the law as it pertains to specifics of my case. I can honestly say she is an advocate for what is fair under the law, and her goal is for a clear understanding of the law by all parties involved. Jill's professionalism is superb when dealing with difficult people. I witnessed that as well during my case and for that I give her a "high five". I truly appreciate her service and consideration when it came to the fees as well. Everything was up front so there were no surprises. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a God fearing attorney and would not hesitate to request her services again, should a need arise. When I say she was the right lawyer at the right time, you can trust me on that.
Overall, Jill was very helpful with my collaborative divorce process. She was knowledgeable of the laws and processes affecting my case, and was very flexible with my schedule and travel requirements. Additionally, her staff was always prompt and curteous.
Going through a divorce is difficult but Jill is a rare find for someone who is both sensitive and tough. I found Jill to be exactly what I needed from our first visit to the final divorce decree.
