Dedication, Priority, Very Professional
About a year ago me and my wife hired Jennifer to represent us in a family court matter. During one of our first phone calls while going over a lot of the information for our first court date Jen was very knowledgeable about the outcomes of the case. She warned us ahead of time what the possible outcomes could be, the best options to take, and things we should do to make our case go as smoothly as possible. She had a very proffesional attitude going into the court. She met us there, went over our reports, discussed with us and made sure everything was correct. Made sure any discrepancies were brought to the courts attention and had them fixed. There was many times my wife and I were not so happy with the courts opinions and actions, but she reassured us that if we were to do everything the court was asking of us, things would turn around. And they certainly have in our case. We as parents are not always perfect, we went through hard times, and a made a few mistakes on the way. But when it seemed like we were going to loose our family and everything was falling apart Jen was there to help make sure that didn't happen. Not to mention that her relationship with the local attorneys and the district attorneys made the line of open communication very helpful. She was able to work out a plea deal with them for us so we kept our family together and were able to prove to the courts that we loved our kids more then anything in the world and would do anything to prove it. A year later, everything is being wrapped up, and we are still a family and still able to kiss our children good night, every night. Jennifer's dedication to my family will always be remembered, and we will always be grateful for what she did for us. She was very affordable and was straight forward with her pricing and there was no hidden charges. She did everything she promised she would, and a lot more. I highly reccomend her to anyone who is in need of a hard working and knowledgeable lawyer. Thank you Jennifer, from the Warner Family.

Walked me through everything perfectly!
I showed up to Ms. Nunnery's office without an appointment looking for somone to help me with a Worker's Compensation case. She informed me up front that she did not take Worker's Comp cases but she had me sit down and she reviewed all of my paperwork and explained to me what the terms meant, what I needed to do, and answered my questions. She was honest with what she didn't know and said she would look into a few things for me. A week later Ms. Nunnery did call me back with answers for the questions I had asked as well as recommendations for two attorneys that she had spoken with to make sure they could take my case and had experience in my particular injury. This was all part of her free consultation with me. If I ever need legal services in the areas she does practice I will definitely be giving her a call!
