A complete nightmare . She made a painful situation into a horrendous nightmare ! Over a dozen emails were never answered. She lost and misplaced papers and were not prepared in court . An important piece of paper was lost , it cost me $4000.
She basically let me defend myself in court and did nothing herself .

Horrible experience. Transfer the case to her worker named Jessica who is unprofessional, disrespectful. I paid $2500 for representing me less then a month without any court appearance. Being a single mom with a small child on my hand that needed help of the attorney during a terrible time in my life. I was surprised how supposedly a caring attorney treats there clients with totally opposite behavior.

Promised to take on my case herself. Easy open/close case she said.
a true nightmare. She handed me off to one of her new associates, two times.
I was billed for everything they discussed, without being there. (2x)
She charged me an astronomical amount of money and my settlement was a mess.
A horrible experience.
I had to go back to court for a modification.
A divorce that should cost $2500.00 (no marital assets) cost $40k.

I had the pleasure to work with the great team of Wisselman, Harounian & Associates, P.C. I remember losing hope that night burnt out from my former attorney's poor service and since then I searched and searched in the Internet with a hope that someone will be out there to fight for my rights and then God helped me found Jacquelyn Harounian and her name comes up on my first search that night as a light of hope. From there I had the pleasure to work with Jackie who initially started my case. The first time I met her I believed in Jackie that she will get me the justice that I deserve and finish my case successfully. With that she started and took drastic measures to resolve the child support payment issue and arrears that was pending for a year that my husband didn't pay and my former attorney didn't taken any action on that. She continued to fight for a good negotiating settlement agreement with my husband on property/assets distribution, child support and marital debt. I was very happy with the overall service she has provided to me.

After consultations with several other attorneys, it was apparent within minutes of meeting her that Ms. Harounian was vastly superior. She thoroughly knows the law and the courts -- can answer any question you could possibly have, no matter how idiosyncratic your situation may be -- quickly grasps who you are and what you need, and will get you through your divorce as inexpensively and painlessly as she can. She honestly cares about her clients and stays on top of their cases at all times. Truly amazing.

Jackie was retained to handle the buy out of marital house. I signed all appropriate paperwork in her office. My ex never signed to release escrow check to me without my knowledge I wanted a closing with all parties there but never happened. So I moved out signed agreement, signed deed over to my ex, gave key but my ex never signed so the check was never released to me. Jackie is still holding escrow and charging me $3,500 for handling check for 2 years. I have no money no house. I don't think she knows what she's doing. And I am homeless

Jackie Harounian is a consummate professional with extraordinary knowledge, compassion and expertise. I am extremely grateful to Jackie and her team for her guidance, support, and generosity in helping me with my recent divorce. From the very beginning Jackie was generous with her time on the phone, gave me sound advice, and was always responsive. She kept me informed throughout the proceeding and always let me know what to expect. The divorce itself was difficult in and of itself, but I will always be grateful to Jackie and her team at Wisselman, Harounian and Associates for getting me through it smoothly and in the most dignified manner possible. I give Jackie and her team the highest recommendation possible because of her expertise, commitment, responsiveness and empathy. Thank You

Becoming a newly mom and going through a divorce process in a short amount of time is very stressful and emotionally draining. However, the expertise of Jacqueline Harounian and her staff definitely eased the process. From day one, Jacqueline understood what I was seeking for in my divorce matter and fought for it until the end. Her staff engagement through the whole process was phenomenal. They were always available to answer my legal questions and/or just to hear me out and alleviate my anxiety. I am forever indebted with Jacqueline. Her tenacity, passion, and care for her clients is what makes her an amazing attorney with a high success rate. I highly recommend Jacqueline and her firm to anyone who is seeking representation in a divorce matter at a reasonable cost.

Jackie Harounian is by far the" BEST ATTORNEY " I have ever met. Her Style, Her Class, Her Knowledge and Understanding of the Law, as well as Her Compassion for her clients is the "Elite" in the industry.
Going through a divorce is tough enough, having children in a divorce is really tough, but having a child
with "Special Needs" and going through a divorce is beyond words. Unfortunately my previous attorney
in my divorce, did not handle or represent my child and I in a way that would secure what we were entitled to by law. Once my divorce was finalized and my ex-husband did not comply with any and all of the Court Orders that were put into place, I knew I was left with no choice but to find an "Excellent Attorney" to correct the situation and properly represent me. Jackie, along with Lisa Gardner Associate Attorney and Jessica Fitzpatrick Paralegal have taken the time and all measures to ensure that any and all legal issues that were incorrectly handled in the past, were now being addressed with the court.
They have answered every question one could possibly ask with regards to my case. Jackie and her team have returned every phone call, every email and every fax that I have sent to each of them, and believe me, there were many! The first time Jackie and I appeared in court there was a major snow storm on its way. I called and asked Jackie if we were canceling, Jackie said "Are you kidding? Court is open, we are going in!" Well not only did we go into Court and wait for what seemed like forever, the "Snow Storm" started and we were not called into the Court Room until the end of the day...Yes Jackie Harounian and I were the very last Attorney/Client to leave the building...it took several hours to return home in the storm due to weather conditions, but Jackie didnt care. She made sure that everything we needed to do that day in Court was taken care of. I must mention that Lisa Gardner, Jackie's Associate Attorney along with Jessica Fitzpatrick , Jackie's Paralegal are the "Most Loyal and Dedicated Associate Attorney/Paralegal " I have met, not to mention have ever heard of. They know every detail of your case, and when they tell you they were check and advise you, they mean it! I "HIGHLY' recommend Jackie Harounian and her Associates to represent you, especially in such situations where your divorce can be very complicated.
