Ms Wright was knowledgeable, trustworthy, and congenial during my often times difficult divorce process. I appreciate her and her capabilities to walk with me to the finish line.
Jennifer was professional, helpful, patient and level-headed during this emotional time for me. She answered all of my questions in great detail and in a timely manner. She was always just an e-mail or phone call away. She gave sound and thoughtful advice. She really listened to my situation and helped me make decisions based on her knowledge and my wishes. She made me feel confident in how we were proceeding with this divorce. My ex wanted to sue me for a ridiculous sum of money, while taking all of my liquid assets; none of which happened. There were child custody/support issues, property, my ex's paramour and their unborn child adding to make an emotional mix, as well as opposing counsel frequently being ill-prepared. Her advice took everything into consideration and she kept me from becoming rattled. Her staff was also extremely polite and helpful.
We were able to settle at mediation and I am very pleased with the way everything has turned out. This divorce ended with me in a better place both emotionally and financially.
Divorce is messy and mine was no different. This was probably one of the most emotional events in my life. At times I felt with all the odd twist and turns I was living in a bad Jerry Springer episode. I had also never been through a divorce before, and knew little about the process. Jennifer was there every step of the way offering very wise counsel, advice and listening even when my emotions were running at a fever pitch high. Her knowledge of family law I feel is par none. She never told me anything that wrong. When I felt I was going to be taken for retirement being in the military and even the dog I dearly loved. She saved both. She made me feel as if I was a part of the process in the case by providing information in my case. I felt like I was not alone in what I was going through. She always kept me informed and answered every question no matter how trivial in nature. She was always ready to challenge the other side and never ever backed down from fight with them questioning everything they threw at me. She is hawk in any venue wither it is mediation or court. If you are another lawyer going up against her you should know her and her client will be ready for you. She will not back down. Jennifer has to be the most outstanding attorney I have every meet she is compassionate, willing to listen even when you are venting and then bring you back on track with your goals. You will not feel like you are being judged or looked down on by her. She understands the military retirement system and TSP better than any lawyer I have ever heard of. If you are in the Military she is the lawyer you will want in your comer. She will assist you in setting realistic expectation and goal in your divorce. She will explain TX family law to you until she is sure you understand it. She will leave no stone unturned when she represent you. I will tell anyone hire her she is the lawyer you want.
My divorce was handled by Jennifer's firm and finalized 3 years ago. Circumstances have occured that made me question some of the items in my decree due to a change in residence. After calling the firm to ask questions, they put me in touch with Jennifer. She has been extremely helpful in helping to answer my questions. She was quick to return my calls, and did a great job with reviewing my divorce documents with me in an understanding, professional, and knowledgeable manner.
Short summary: If you are in need of a family practice lawyer, hire Jennifer!
Background: I am now a single dad with primary of two wonderful kids. My divorce was hotly contested, the opposing party was aggressive, and the process took nearly a year. I had also never been through a divorce before, and knew little about the process.
Looking back on everything, there are three areas that I would comment on: legal knowledge/tactics, counselor/counseling, and advocacy. At the start of the attorney-client relationship with Jennifer, I was focused on the legal area; the case had become very vigorous, and I felt that I stood to lose everything that was important to me. Prior legal teams had been ill-prepared and quite costly; I was looking for the â€œlegal hawk.â€
Legal knowledge/tactics: Jennifer is very knowledgeable and well-versed from a legal theory and case law perspective. Contrasting that, she is quite straight-forward, level, and down to earth in her attorney-client dialog. She puts issues and precedence in layman terms; not lofty sounding legal references. It was also a pleasure to witness Jennifer correcting opposing party over and over. From an organization and preparedness perspective, I cannot imagine youâ€™d find anyone better than Jennifer. She is meticulous and extremely organized. You should be prepared to work almost as much as your lawyer in this regard; by the end of our case, Jennifer had a minor library of cataloged, indexed, collated, bound and organized material at her fingertips. Yes, it was many trees in the making. In court, Jennifer is very sharp and her examination (direct and cross) very strategic, focused, and relevant.
Counselor/counseling: An unsettling realization I had to come to terms with through the process was that my morals and ethics are not the law. If you think of the image of that blind-folded lady holding the scalesâ€¦that is such a perfect analogy. Divorces are ugly, messy, painful things, and I donâ€™t think itâ€™s a stretch to say that almost every issue can become â€˜amped up.â€™ Jennifer is a fantastic counselor who will work to keep you focused despite â€˜amped up issuesâ€™ on both the important aspects of your position and how that feeds into or should be addressed through the legal process. It is not a quick process, and no, you wonâ€™t get to have the judge rule that your soon-to-be ex should be burned at the stake at noon on Friday. Thatâ€™s satire by the way, and I mean that to build a mental picture that what you might emotionally want and what you can realistically attain in court might be very far apart. Jennifer is superb at guiding your attention and focus to what matters IN COURT.
Advocacy: Jennifer will work towards your interests, but also that of any children (if any) involved in the contest. Jennifer is direct when needed, and Jennifer will offer alternatives that you may not have been considered. Especially when dealing with children and finances, Jenniferâ€™s level of thought and advocacy will serve you extremely well. When dealing with counter-suits, proposals, and negotiations, Jeniferâ€™s clear thinking, position-based reasoning (your position) and advocacy will likely keep both you and the opposing party thinking. Jennifer keeps central issues and positions covered, but also does well â€œthinking outside of the box.â€
Looking back on things now, I would advance that over the course of a divorce, a solid counselor and advocate is as important as a â€œlegal hawk.â€ Youâ€™ll find all three aspects very well balanced and delivered in Jennifer. Rounding it all off, Jennifer is extremely personable, affable, and will likely make you feel at ease and safe.
I cannot say enough good things about Jennifer; she is a fantastic lawyer!
Jennifer is a confident and knowledgable lawyer. She goes above and beyond for her client and the needs of the case. She executes what needs to be done with precision and care. If you do not want to be treated like a number, then Jennifer is the lawyer you need to hire.
