Outstanding Lawyer
Attorney Currie was my representation on a recent criminal case. Not only is she extremely intelligent and kindhearted, she is an attorney that knows how to do her job at a high level and will fight for you relentlessly. Due to her exceptional work, the best outcome possible happened for me and my family and that is all because of Attorney Currie and her efforts. If you are seeking representation, Attorney Currie is a good as it gets.

Top notch juvenile defense attorney
A criminal proceeding against a juvenile is scary and confusing to the child and the parents. Attorney Currie took time to explain the charges and court process to my child and address any questions that we had. At our hearing before the Court, Attorney Currie explained what to expect when we were in the courtroom, presented the facts to the Judge in a thorough and concise manner that left us feeling confident in the defense our child was receiving. Once you are involved in the court system it is clear that nothing is certain; however, working with Attorney Currie you can be assured that your child will receive top notch legal representation and have a lawyer who puts in the work needed to give your child the best possible outcome.

Helpful and informative
Jennifer was wonderful with my son, and while we paid the bill, she always treated him as her client. She listened and spent time with him to truly understand his situation. Ending up in court with a 13-year-old who made a poor teenage judgment call is the last place you'd imagine you'd end up, but if life takes you there, you want someone like Jennifer on your side. Jennifer will not only represent you to the best of her abilities, but she is also well respected in the courts and makes sure you understand the case, both the negatives and positives. While the situation was not easy on our family, we always felt like we were in good hands.

Excellent to work with
Before finding Jennifer I was in contact with a few lawyers who didn’t really care about my case. This was my first charge and no criminal record. Their communication was poor, and they did not have the same belief I did to get my case dismissed before arraignment. When I met Jennifer I knew right away she was a good fit. She asked me questions and really cared about me and getting the best possible outcome in my favor. she was responsive and patient. At the end I got what I needed , all charges dismissed before arraignment. She is not only a wonderful lawyer but a great human being as well. I could not thank Jennifer enough.

Sweet Justice
I feel that attorney Currie, went a bove and beyond to defend my son in his case. She listened and also gave him the best advice she could to helping him avoid any other problems. I can never thank her enough for helping my son to get to be a kid again.

Not just a lawyer She's the "BEST LAWYER"!!!!
My son was arrested over the summer and had 7 charges against him. Believe it or not he had nothing to do with the crimes he was charged with. Attorney Currie was able to get 6 charges dropped after the first court date and then she was able to get the last charge dropped. The d.a. was out to get my son was fighting to keep every charge against my son. ATTORNEY CURRIE NEVER GAVE UP. I would call a lot and either she picked up or called me back within an hour. Honestly I believe if it was any other lawyer my son would be in jail or on probation but thanks to Attorney Currie my son has NO RECORD. She doesn't treat the client like a client she treats them like she would if it was her own child. I say this because I don't know what more I would of done for my son she did it all. I WILL ALWAYS BE THANKFUL AND GRATEFUL TO HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE AND THE OPPORTUNITY HAVE MET AND ANGEL NAMED ATTORNEY JENNIFER CURRIE.

Professional and Kind
I worked with Jennifer on a case related to a family matter and she was absolutely amazing and on top of everything. If I reached out and was unable to get ahold of her she would contact me back very quickly and put any worry or stress I was having at ease. She was extremely professional and I appreciate all of the help she has provided us.

I beat my cases!!!
My lawyer was very professional in a very hard to beat case, she remained calm an collected and explained and broke down every inch of my case accurately. Jennifer is very confident an determined on representing her clients. I ended up getting both my cases solved and I don't have to worry bout serving jail time. I reccomend Jennifer to anyone that wants to beat their case.

Exceptional representation !!
I’m not a resident of MA so I was concerned about hiring a lawyer in another state. My son needed representation in Juveniel Court in MA where he attends school. She not only understood my sons special needs but took the time to familiarize herself with him prior to meeting him. She wasn’t only prepared for the charges brought forth but had a strategy in place. She took the anxiety out of being in court. I can’t thank you enough !! From my son and I

Hands down the best in the business!!
Attorney Currie is one of the sharpest, most diligent and honest attorney's in the Commonwealth. She is very thorough and detailed. After reviewing all the facts of a case, she provides her clients with all options available, and the possible outcomes. I relied on her expert knowledge in order to decide how best to resolve my case. She was always available to answer whatever questions I had. I was very pleased with the outcome and highly recommend Jennifer. I know many people who have hired her to resolve other issues and she comes highly recommended across the board!!!
