I hired Jeanette Durham for four cases. Two cases in 2016 and two cases in 2018. I'm so grateful for her. One was a very sensitive PFA case. She was extremely professional and made me feel comfortable with her. She was was right by my side at one of the most painful times in my life. I don't know what I would've done without her. She was my my rock! We got the best results we could've. We both we very happy with the outcome.
The second case was to modify my custody agreement. This motion to modify wasn't filed my myself but from my child's father. He was claiming I was unfit and my child wasn't safe in my presence. Which this person was the same person who I filed the PFA against. With those strong allegations she helped me get a new modified agreement filed. She typed the entire agreement out even though the defendant filed the motion and didnt know what he wanted. So, we took some time and we put in every situation we could think of from holidays to passport related issues. She even added in extra words just incase laws change for tax purposes. So my agreement will always be a valid one. Some other attorneys don't and then you would have rehire them to fix it. She's a very detail-oriented and organized attorney which I loved because it can be very stressful having to go through something like this. She had my best interest in mind. We ended up not having to go to trial on either case which was what I wanted. If you hire Jeanette she will fight for you like she fought for me. I wouldn't hire anyone else!

I called multiple lawyers and had to leave a voicemail on all. Jeanette was the only one that called me back. I hired her immediately. Met with her and did the consultation and was very happy. She followed through everything and I left very happy in the end. I would highly recommend her. Very down to earth!

When I consulted with Jeanette Durham I was completely overwhelmed by the court process. When I hired her I felt a huge sense of relief and confidence in her. She fought for me and my child to ensure our safety through a domestic violence divorce situation. I couldn't have got through it without her.

Explained pros and cons of every step and worked with everyone to come up with an agreement with no need for trial.

I have never needed to use a lawyer before but I'm so glad I choose Jeanette out of the myriad of options. Jeanette made an otherwise difficult and painful process as smooth as possible for me. There were no grand promises only truthful explanations of what to expect. I got the sense from the get-go that Jeanette truly cares about difficult family dynamics and wants what is in the best interest of any children involved, and that her end goal is to protect the children while recognizing the fact that two people still need to continue co-parenting in the aftermath. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing a thoughtful and caring lawyer to handle family issues, divorce, or, child custody matters. Jeanette is honest and compassionate with a strong work ethic to see things to completion.

When I went in to have a consultation with Jeanette I was nervous I didn't know what to expect. She was very welcoming when I came through the door I felt very comfortable talking about my case with her and she gave valuable advice on how to approach my situation and knowledge of what my rights are in my unique situation. I came out of the consultation knowing a lot more about what to do next to get my life back. I would definitely use Jeanette again if I need help with legal advice anytime. Thank you Jeanette you are the BEST!!!

Words cannot begin to express how thankful we are for Attorney, Jeanette Durham. Jeanette is absolutely the best, hands down. We feel genuinely blessed to have had such a kind, caring, knowledgeable attorney, to be by our side throughout a two year custody battle.
Jeanette was there to listen and talk during the worst times, helping us to cope with the uncertainties and fear that people face in these situations. She was also there to kindly protect us from unnecessary stressors at court.
Beyond her compassion, Jeanette is ( in our limited experience in a court room ) so very articulate and charismatic in the court room. She takes charge and follows through, working hard for her client. We would absolutely use Jeanette again in the future!
Sincerely, Diana & Greg

I had a great experience with Jeanette. I hope to never have to get divorced again, but if I did, I would use Jeanette again. I didn't have as hard of a divorce as some people, since my ex-husband and I are on good terms and had everything pretty much settled, but Jeanette seemed to make everything go that much more smoothly.

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.
