Right from the beginning Jeannette take the time to understand your situation. Also, you sense quickly that she does care about you and the challenges you are facing.
She has a deep understanding of the legal system and all it's ramifications. She is also financial savvy when it comes to negotiate. She will notice detail that she will leverage to your advantage.
She has been very pleasant to work with and alway make me feel good in the most overwhelming situation. She was very pleasant to both side.
She is very well know at the court house and respected by the mediator and magistrate ( judge).
Jeanette is the lawyer you want by your side especially when the negotiations get very emotional and complexe. She will look out for you and make sure you understand what is been presented. She will gently request to have private conversations with you to make sure you understand the long term impact of any agreement you are about to made.
I felt at peace and extremely confident having Jeannette representing me in the most challenging and emotional situation of life.
I could go on and on. I would say stop looking for a lawyer and choose Jeannette. You will be very glad you did and all is over.

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.

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’d like to first say that Mrs. Durham is probably the most kind, understanding and poised person I’ve ever met. She worked closely with me in obtaining an order of protection from abuse. Prior to this case I had been dragged through hell and back. I was tired, defeated & and I ultimately felt alone. Mrs. Durham gave me a voice when I felt I did not have one. She believed and conveyed that I was worth fighting for. For someone who has been abused, I cannot describe the feeling of relief when you realize you don’t have to do this on your own anymore.
In the begin, everything about the legal system seemed so complicated and stressful to me. Mrs. Durham made it a priority to go over everything and put it in its simplest form so that I could understand it. There were no surprises. She prepared me for every step and explained what the possible outcomes could be. The more I understood the more confident I became in myself and in my case.
When it came to the date of the hearing Mrs. Durham presented herself with such proficiency. Her questions and statements in the courtroom were strategic and impressive. You could not ignore her presences nor her passion for what she believed in. When it was time for me to testify, I was allowed to cry and express my fears. I was given an opportunity to feel safe and say what I needed to say without the fear of being abused. I honestly don’t know if I would have had the courage to do that if it weren’t for Mrs. Durham's support.
After the hearing was all over, I was awarded a 4-year protection order. I was so overjoyed with the judgement. It meant I was free from being a victim. It meant that I could have a life again. I owe so much to my current well-being to Mrs. Durham. She deserves so much credit.

Extraordinary service! I called Ms. Durham for a consultation and some direction to move forward with my legal matter, and was presented with a friendly, knowledgeable incite. I immediately felt she is all about her clients needs. She is the representation you need!

I had a seemly complicated divorce. Being elderly, handicapped and out of state defines the complications. I found Ms Durham patient with me, explaining all of the steps involved and forthcoming with all the information I needed for my case. She was also very helpful with my physical limitations not being able to travel out of state. I found Ms Durham trustworthy and a advocate for me. I would highly recommend Jeanette Durham as your attorney.

Attorney Durham is phenomenal!!! My case is extremely complex and the intricacies too many to specifically reference. However, she took on the challenge of my case with confidence and ease. She has the elite brilliance, knowledge and expertise necessary to ensure her clients receive the best outcome possible. She is a real person who understands the concerns, anxiety and emotions her clients are going through. She is impeccable with her representation of practice and shows the compassion necessary to handle what is in the best interest of her clients and their children. Attorney Durham's ability to be an active listener set's her apart from her collegaues. She is able to recall pertinent details from conversations and witness testimony which is vital to attaining a positive outcome. She is a distinctive and compassionate force in this very challenging legal world. I am blessed to have her in my corner representing me!!!!

I hired Jeanette out if all the other lawyers I spoke with because she was most informative and took the time to explain everything to me instead of just saying this is what it will cost with a few things thrown in like all the others. She listened to what I wanted for my son and made everything go smoothly with my ex husband. She was very personable! And made what I thought would be tough extremely easy.

Jeanette was wonderful. I would be putting it mildly to say that I was fumbling in the dark trying to figure out what I needed to do concerning my ex-husband. Jeanette was clear and decisive very to the point and made things easy to understand. She takes her job very personally and can comprehend the The hopelessness and pain of a situation. She too is a mother so she can definitely relate to a parents love. She wants the best for the child and you the parent. I have no doubt in my mind that if I had done this on my own I would've fallen flat on my face. She came up with a good deal for my ex-husband which he turned down and in the end the judges decision gave me more than I was asking for! Now just a month later already there is progress with my young son with autism because he is in a more stable environment and I can address my daughters needs as well more readily than I could before.
Thank you so much for no thank you so much Jeanette for helping my family!
