    • I recommend Jane Deyeso.
    • I hired Jane more than 3 years ago.
    • Jane handled my Child Custody matter.

    I was referred to Jane by a very satisfied colleague who had gone through a messy divorce and custody battle. She had worked wonders for him and he recommended I sit down and tell her my story. From the moment I met Jane, I knew she was the right person to fight for and represent me.
    I had been several months into a divorce battle where I was continually bullied by opposing counsel without any help from my first lawyer. It was apparent that I was going to loose far more than I should if I continued on that path. I decided to make a change and it was the best choice I could have made.
    From the first meeting with Jane and her staff I recognized that in order to succeed in any court battle, you have to have a dedicated, experienced, knowlegeabele team that is willing to go the extra mile to get what is right. She was prepared from day one and had a gameplan that she continually updated me on. It was a long drawn out process with many hearings, rulings, and unfortunately, many surprises. Around every corner, Jane was approachable, encouraging, and understanding. She took the time to explain to me the Judicial system in simple terms, never got upset or discouraged, and seemed to anticipate every move by opposing counsel and prepare for it. She was truely a professional, and better than that, she seemed to understand how hard the situation was for me. In just over 2 years time, I went from almost losing my children and everything I had worked for, to having primary custody of the children with a very acceptable divorce decree. I could never have obtained that without the help of Jane and her dedication. To this day, she continues to respond to emails and give advice on how to navigate the post divorce/post custody battle environment.
    I am so thankful that I met Jane and had her represent me and my children. I recommend her without reservation to anyone who anticipates a difficult divorce or custody battle.

    • I recommend Jane Deyeso.
    • I hired Jane more than 3 years ago.
    • Jane handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    We hired Jane Deyeso in December of 2011 to handle a child custody and child support issue. After years of trying to work through a very difficult situation, we were referred to Jane. Jane is still assisting us with ongoing child support issues almost 18 months later, and we are grateful to have her continued support and guidance. She is the calming influence as we navigate this storm.

    We immediately knew after first meeting Jane that we had found the right attorney. The advice she has given us has always been very well thought out, and she has always listened to our concerns. Jane has always been well prepared when it was time to meet with a judge or arbitrator, and took the time to personally check in with us before and after these critical times. Jane takes on an appropriate case load that allows her to personally spend the time that is needed with each of her clients. Jane's staff is also highly competent and caring, and have promptly handled anything that we have needed help with. Jane is also aware of the cost side of the equation, and gave us "homework assignments" to provide us with the ability to reduce costs where possible.

    We cannot imagine going through this without Jane, and she has become a personal friend to us. Jane has consistently proven to have the highest ethical standards and is extremely knowledgable in family law. We have already made several referrals, and will continue to do so.

    • I recommend Jane Deyeso.
    • I hired Jane 1-3 years ago.
    • Jane handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    When I had given up hope of ever getting a divorce, Ms. Deyeso made the impossible happen. I had hired other lawyers and had gotten no response from any of them. Upon receiving my file, her entire office was on the case. I have never felt so supported. I received many personal phone calls from Ms. Deyeso about my case and, before I knew it, I was divorced.
    I was worried about cost and the ability to be able to pay for an attorney, but I am satisfied with that outcome as well, without having to go into specifics.
    I hope that I never need Ms. Deyeso again, but I heartily recommend her to anyone who may be searching for that special person who cares about you and your family. In court, she actually remembered something that I had mentioned in passing, that I thought was insignificant and never mentioned again. She remembered. She has a great mind!

    Ms. Deyeso is above reproach. She is hardworking, committed and ethical. I had a very difficult divorce and she was able to take the reins and turn a disasterous situation into a touchdown. When I was exercising emotional episodes, she was the unemotional, rational rock. At all times I was informed and given options and guidelines. She also never gave up on the situation, the goal or me. Thank you endlessly!

    I think the greatest compliment you can give someone is to refer friends and family. Mrs. Deyeso was professional and very knowledgeable with my case and a pleasure to work with. I am sure the same would apply to any of her clients. Mrs. Deyeso was a blessing to me and my children.
