Excellent Experience
It was a very difficult time when my mother passed away. Jaclyn’s care, professionalism, knowledge and genuine interest in making the process as easy as possible was a blessing. I highly recommend her for any estate needs and plan to use her again for my own family planning.

Estate planning made easy
As an attorney, I probably could have written my own will, but I wanted it done properly. Her will preparation process was detailed and straightforward. The questionnaire she provided gave us a starting point for having estate planning conversations. Jaclyn raised potential issues that I didn't contemplate and had suggestions for handling them. We are happy with the our completed wills and wish we would have hired her sooner.

Attorney With a Heart
Jaclyn Nayar! I don't even know where to begin. She was my lifesaver during a very dark time in my life. Besides being professional and getting the job done to my satisfaction, Jackie is a kind, caring, and compassionate person. When I hired Jackie I was ready to give up. My husband left me with no warning. 3 weeks after that I tragically lost my sister. 2 months after that I was served with divorce papers. I consulted with a couple of attorneys that were just not the right person for my case. One of them had me in tears by the time we hung up from our phone consultation. I contacted him because he is a partner at the law firm my parents hired for my sister's death. He made me feel like an idiot for asking the questions I asked. He practically hung up on me. It was like this little divorce case wasn't worth the time. I decided to go through the divorce on my own without an attorney. After suffering 2 major losses, my mind was not in a good place to try to navigate the legal system. When I was at my wits end, a friend referred me to Jackie and to this day I have such gratitude for that friend. I only spoke with Jackie on the phone once and felt a big weight lifted off my shoulders. She listened to my story, was very understanding, and gave me advice. She didn't make me feel stupid for any questions I asked. She actually made me feel that I had valid questions. Needless to say, after that phone conversation I hired Jackie. She literally held my hand through the whole divorce process and made it as easy as possible for me. I've dealt with attorneys before in my life for various reasons. Jackie is the first one I've ever dealt with that is professional and good at what she does, but she also has a heart! With Jackie you don't feel like it's about the money. You will feel that she really cares and wants to help. I highly recommend her to help you with your case. I would definitely use her again if the need arises and would refer her to my own family. Jaclyn Nayar is a rare gem in the attorney world!

Great experience, great outcome
Jaclyn represented us in a case against a shady building management company and earned us a very fair settlement. Throughout the process she was very thorough, patient and attentive, and it was apparent that she genuinely cared about us and our case. She is exactly the kind of smart, dedicated person you want in your corner. She is an excellent attorney and I would happily recommend her.
