I would not recommend Jolein Harro's law firm. I was in a vornurable situation and Jolein's assistants knew it and were convincing and convincing me that I need to hire Jolein. I gave up, I was silly and scared and hired her. I gave her all my savings I had in this world, $4000. That money was spent with no results. For example, when I went to court, not only her assistants forgot to send the judge my paperwork, but after I talked to the judge, she started her sentence with these exact words: " I don't know what your lawyer has been telling you, but here is the real truth..." What the judge told me was a big diffrence from what Jolein with all confidence has been telling me. I'm very sad I sliped and was so vornurable to allow this firm to have so much control over me. I understand Jolein and Zuzu have families and bills too and have got to take care of their family first. But in this case, it was mine life on the line, my life, that got very difficult. After I raen out of money and I really did give Jolein everything I had, I had no choice than to ask my separated husband for help. The one I was divorcing, yeah. I wish I used this money to start a life on my own and pay for my school. I'm very upset I made this decision to hire her firm. I believe she and Zuzu are very smart and probably good people besides their work. But please, don't make the same mistake I did. No matter what situation you are in, don't just believe anybody because they promise you something that's not truth and you are worried about your life.

The Law Office of Jolein Harro was very thoughtful in the handling of my case. I had a very difficult situation with the soon to be ex-husband and I feel they handled it as best as they could. It is difficult to have the best interests of the children at heart when dealing with another attorney who does not. So, as far as I am concerned, they kept their integrity and we did what we needed to do in order to have the least effect on the children. Thank you!
