I hired Jenny Gadow after firing my first attorney for negotiating with opposing council without my consent. I found her to be direct, forthcoming and intelligent with abundant experience. In my case, my ex-spouse and I had a private small business that needed to be divided. Jenny got me through the process with a fair settlement and closed our dissolution using a mediator to avoid the extreme costs of going to court. I highly recommend.
I would not recommend this attorney. I never felt like she was invested in my case. In fact, I was given incorrect information that would have changed my life completely had I not decided to go with a different attorney's office.
I hired Jenny to represent me during a very contentious divorce wherein my ex-wife attempted to prevent me from having parental rights to my children and had threatened on multiple occasions to leave the country with them. I found Jenny to be a very professional lawyer who was thoroughly prepared throughout all phases of the divorce process. She conducted a very thorough disclosure process, allowing us to prepare a fair and comprehensive settlement offer to the opposing side. Although the opposing side was consistently unable to respond in a timely or realistic manner, Jenny was able to stick to her guns and represent my interests. When we conducted our pre-trial mediation I was amazed at how thoroughly prepared we were compared to the opposing party. Ultimately, we were able to reach a settlement agreement that was very close to my initial offer (showing how knowleable she is) that guaranteed shared parenting rights, 50/50 parenting time, and a fair offer of support. All in all we achieved all of my goals. Jenny is smart, thorough, has excellent knowledge of her field, and is ethical and professional. I highly recommend.
jenny is wonderful. Professional, efficient, ethical, reliable and superb in Court. I find divorce as the most excruciating experience in ones life. Working with a lawyer that can be competent, professional and supportive at the same time are who Jenny Gadow is.
I had another attorney working on my case, but he seemed lazy, not aggressive,almost like it was no big deal he had done tons of cases like mine before. To me it was a big deal it was everything it was my life, my daughter. But when I met jenny, she understood the stress and worry I was having. When I hired her, things started happening we started going to court, she was pulling every piece of information she could find on my daughter father. She went for it all. When it came to court, she was amazing, she really blew me away. Because, of her I got everything I wanted plus more. Even months later my daughter's dad told me, my attorney was a bulldog of an attorney. And for her to scare him show's a lot about how she, handles her cases. I have and always will recommend her to anyone I know. Every case is different and it will affect everyone differently, but I believe she will do her every best to help you.
I was referred to her firm by another attorney. At first I was very happy with her. Half way throught the process, I was feeling a little dismayed - the process was taking its toll. But when we went to court, she was awesome! Her calm, cool demeanor meant so much to me. Her organization skills and her aggression when necessary made me want to give her a major high five! I was awarded sole custody due to her diligience. I highly recommend her - she was compassionate and kept the focus on my son.
I would not recommend Jenny as a family law attorney. After I had switched attorneys, I had to file a bar complaint against her before I returned to my previous attorney. I will never recommend Jenny to other people.
You can go wrong with this attorney! Her experience and understanding of the process allows you to remain cool, confident and well-informed. She is assertive and thorough, working ONLY when necessary in order to save you time and money - avoiding all unecessary paperwork, litigation and worry. If necessary, Jenny can be aggressive and tenacious with her opponent, but typically she is warm, professional and very kind. I would trust her completely and I recommend her to anyone who mentions a divorce - even when they already have an attorney. I have persuaded folks to work with her who have had an attorney that was 1/2 the price of Jenny Gadow, and they we so appreciative - they ended up saving money and heartache when switching to Jenny.
