Best attorney in NJ!!!
I have an immense respect for Jen and her practice. Jen and Cadence helped me through a very difficult jurisdictional case. She is an extremely competent, knowledgeable, respectable and honest litigator and I appreciate her ability to finally bring my case to an end. I highly recommend her and her team!

BAD ASS ATTORNEY
After 3 attorneys. Many months of torture and expense, Jennifer was the ONLY Attorney that could get the job done! Jennifer is compassionate! She immediately made me feel protected, and explained every step we took together. She is aggressive and tough as nails when it is warranted. Divorce and post divorce issues are hard enough. When you truly need a Bad ass Attorney look no further!!

Best Lawyer!!! Highly recommend her!!!
I am so grateful to have had the privilege of working with Jen. I am honored to call her my mentor and my friend. Her authentic, direct and honest approach is so refreshing and effective (and really quite enjoyable!). Jen's guidance and perspective was so accurate and critical to my growth and progress throughout this process. I interviewed several lawyers and was not fully confident and comfortable with any of them...and then I met Jen... I finally had someone smart enough and honest enough to be my guide. Someone who gave me incredibly useful advice as a lawyer, counselor, mentor and friend. Jen always got back to me immediately and her communication was always to the point, efficient and effective. Her knowledgeable support team always took care of me and made me feel comfortable and important. I know for sure that I could not have done this with any other lawyer (or therapist)...she enabled me to feel proud of how we did this divorce with dignity, compassion and fairness. I am now one of Jens' many loyal and adoring fans. She is absolutely the best at what she does. Not to mention the most reasonable!

Excellent Attorney
I approached Jen very late in the process. I needed her to review and make recommendations for my Pre-Nuptial agreement. We we able to review the document and make the necessary changes. She made sure my future interests were protected. She truly valued my time. I can recommend her services to anyone looking for attorney.

Excellent Divorce Lawyer
I knew from the first day I spoke with Jenn on the phone that I was in the right hands. She immediately made me feel that everything was going to be ok . I as many people was in total turmoil going through a divorce . Jenn gave me a direction and her confidence and compassion as well as her strong personality kept me positive throughout this very trying ordeal. I remember the day I met her she said, " You may not think this now but you are going to be a much stronger confident person in the end of this tough journey." You know what, Jenn was spot on ... Thank you for all you did and for holding my hand and helping me become the strong woman I am today . Laura

excellent lawyer
I went to Jennifer with my brother since he was going through a difficult divorce and his head was not in it. I met with Jennifer and had many conversations ( probably where she had to repeat things she said to my brother) and she was always very accommodating and understanding. She was also very truthful with us, which not only saved us unnecessary fees but saved my brother heartache. She resolved problems instead of creating them and used her experience to help us legally and personally in understanding the law. I am writing because we recently used Jennifer again and she surpassed her professionalism and compassion from last time. She helped my brother like nobody else would. I fully recommend her as a lawyer and more importantly as a compassionate moral person. I can't say enough about our experience. Once you meet her you will see the difference between her and other lawyers.

Steve - thank you so much for taking the time to post this. Please know it was my pleasure to help your brother. I still vividly remember the first time I met with you and him, it was heart-wrenching, but it all turned out well. I sincerely enjoyed getting to know you and wish that all of my clients could have a brother like you.

Jennifer was spot-on in every step in this process
I chose Jennifer as my attorney after I was served with divorce papers. Jennifer immediately took away much of the anxiety that comes with this process. Her explanations of the law and predicted outcome were spot-on through the entire ordeal. I have and will continue to recommend Jennifer.

Great Attorney! Get's the job done!
Jennifer was everything I needed. She was a calming presence during a difficult alimony issue. She is prompt, tough and fair. She did exactly what she said she would and achieved the results I expected. I couldn't be more happy. I am very thankful for being referred to her. I highly recommend Jennifer!

Mrs. McCaskill is NJ's best divorce attorney!
Mrs. McCaskill provided the best solution during the divorce and mediation process and provided me with peace of mind while I was moving forward to this new stage of my life. I could not have chosen someone better to help me in my life changing situation. I am extremely grateful to her for her solid advise and for allowing me to see the other side of her determined advocacy role... her kind heart! I owe her a debt of gratitude for allowing me to enjoy freedom in a timely fashion. Sincerely, Edna

Listened to 95% of what Jennifer said, only wish I had listened to 100%
I cannot honestly say enough positive things about Jenn, when you are a mom, going thru a divorce, you are only thinking about your kids. If Jenn had not been there thinking about me and my future and how it related to my taking care of my children, I would be in a horrible place. Not only was Jenn an amazing lawyer and fought for me - for us- like a shark, but she was an incredible person, who always listened, and always got back to me, never left me feeling alone. I am where I am today, because of her. My kids are fine and happy, just like she said they would be. I recommend Jennifer to everyone.
