Jeanette was my attorney for 2 years in a family matter. She is hands down the best!!
I'm pretty stubborn about things, but when she told me that if I listen to her and do what she says, things will go so much smoother. And boy was she right!
I followed her advice on everything and we prevailed!!
Jeanette isn't one of those attorneys that is just looking for a paycheck. Jeanette truly cares about you and your case!
In all honesty, after working with her for 2 years, I'm going to miss talking with her.
A great person on all levels!

I was referred to Jeanette Durham from a friend to help with a child support issue. It seemed simple enough the state of maine has the worksheet online and I thought it was going to be smooth sailing. The case took a very unexpected turn and I was so glad I hired miss Durham. She made herself available anytime I had a question, even early on a Sunday. When we appeared in court miss Durham, for lack of a better word, owned the obviously unprepared defense lawyer. Miss Durhams positive rapport with the judge helped keep the hearing on track to keep time and money spent at the court house down to a minimum. TL;DR. She is very talented, aggressive in court, and shows she really cares for her client.

I endorse Jeanette because she is not only incredibly knowledgeable in her field, but also incredibly caring and savvy about making sure she has the resources and strategies to navigate her clients through challenging choices. We recently attended a continuing education course together in her area of speciality of family law, and her engagement and obvious passion for excelling in this field was more than apparent. I will refer any inquiries in family law in her part of the state to her without hesitation. I believe that anyone would be in good hands starting the conversation about their family law questions with Jeanette - if she is not the right fit I am confident she would help connect you or your referral to the right resource.

Jeanette is the resource I turn to whenever I have a question about family law. Although I don't specifically take cases in that area of law, family law issues frequently arise in many different types of case. I have yet to find a question that she hasn't been able to answer quickly and accurately!
