I attended college at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, graduating with honors in 1978. After moving to Maine, I enrolled at the University of Maine School of Law in 1980.  While in law school, I served as the Articles Editor for the University of Maine Law Review and graduated cum laude in 1983. I was admitted to practice law in the Maine State Courts and the United States District Court for the District of Maine later that year.

Upon graduating from law school, I enjoyed the privilege of clerking for a year for the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. I subsequently entered private practice, serving Personal Injury clients throughout Maine, and eventually joined Fales & Fales, P.A. Today, I owns the firm with my husband,  Anthony K. Ferguson, who joined the firm in 1986.

3 years with Jennifer
I found myself one day needing legal aid to defend myself against charges of domestic assault, represention for divorce, and shared custody of my 3.5 year old child. Jennifer was referred too me by a friend. I meet with Jen, and felt from the start she was someone I could put my future in her hands. Jen had her work cut out for her because my now ex- wife had put togather a case against me to bet all cases. My assault case was dissmissed. My fight for shared custody went thur all the typical paths that one parent may take when trying to prove to the courts that another parent is unfit to have shared custody.Which included my child seeing a counselor at the age of 4 and 5. During my fight for custody I had asked Jen to do something that is most often frowned upon by the courts. That was to have my child be put on the witness stand in front of the judge, Presiding over my custody and divorce case. Along with many other factors in this case I strongly believe that the meeting of my child and the Judge showed the court how wrong it would be, and how much it may affect the way this child's life may have turned out had my ex gotten what she wanted. Jennifer fought for Shared Primary Residence, and won this for myself and my daughter. My daughter is 14 now and remembers everything that took place during the 3 years it took to get this case resolved. She does great in school. And has been playing basketball year round for 4 years now, she is in the 8th grade her grades are great, also does track.She has a life that would not be as it is had I not had a Lawyer that went the distance with every issue she could to prove the truth and get all the facts out for every one involved in my case too see. In the end I would not ever want to go through that mess again but if ever I had to I would want Jennifer Ferguson, to be repenting me in court. I always recommend Att. Ferguson to any one needing the best. I could never repay her for what she did for myself and my daughter. Like most Attorneys probably are she dosen't like to be personal with a client, but I know she has a heart of gold, and once in awhile she shows that great smile she try's to hide while doing her Job.

Does not need high budget commercials or gimmicks.
Jennifer and her staff are amazing to work with. There is nothing that gets by her, and if you want results in your case Fales and Fales is definitly worth checking out. As stated in the subject line; you dont need high priced commercials or gimmicks to get results, this is a small personalized firm that treats you the way you deserve. Could not ask for any better because it just does not exist.

Honests and integrity
I met with a couple of lawyers prior to hiring Jennifer to handle my motion to modify case for my divorce judgment. Unlike the other attorneys, Jennifer offered candid advice during our first meeting and described to me what my options were and the best case scenario could be. She gave honest, frank, and realistic advice and feedback during the entire process and was very easy to work with. On several occasions the defendant in the case attempted to steer mediation discussions off topic and Jennifer turned the conversation back to the pertinent issues. If you are looking for no nonsense, honest, and thorough counsel, I would highly recommend Jennifer Ferguson from Fales and Fales.
