About Jennifer

Learn Jennifer’s areas of practice.

I am a Shareholder and Chair of the Family Law Group at Cozen O'Connor which ranks among the top 100 law firms in the Country.  My practice includes all aspects of family law including divorce, custody, support, alimony, and adoption matters in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey.  In addition to family law litigation, I also negotiate prenuptial, post-nuptial and cohabitation agreements.  Further, I mediate and arbitrate family law cases.

 

I have represented a wide variety of clients in hundreds of family law cases throughout my career.  In Pennsylvania, I represent clients in all local counties including Philadelphia, Montgomery, Chester, Delaware, Bucks and Berks as well as others.  In New Jersey, I assist parties throughout the State including Camden, Burlington, Gloucester, Mercer, Atlantic and Cape May counties as well as others.

 

I am a regular legal commentator on national and local television networks including Court TV, CNN, CNN Headline News, Fox News Network, MSNBC, Fox 29, 6 ABC, NBC 10 and CBS 3.  I have appeared on the Today Show, World News Tonight and the O'Reilly Factor among other shows.

 

I also contribute to various publications and websites including USA Today, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Main Line Magazine, Blogher, , and The Huffington Post.  I write my own blog, Family Law Focus (), where I comment and offer insight on topical issues in family law.  I also post monthly on the Martindale-Avvo blog (www.martindale-avvo.com/blog).

 

I am frequently asked to speak on family law issues.  I have presented for the ABA Family Law Section, the Pennsylvania Bar Association and the Pennsylvania Bar Association Family Law Section, Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants and other national, regional and local professional organizations.  I was a featured speaker at the Avvo Lawyernomics Conference in Las Vegas.

Brilliant attorney with integrity
Jennifer is no nonsense and fights for what is truly right, but does so with an unparalleled sharpness that drives the message of truth for her client to the forefront of the case. When the fight is intense and you cannot count on anything from the other side, Jennifer has the mental agility and hunger to pivot with grace and exacting force. She’s incredible.

She really cares about her clients
Jennifer is a very competent and thorough lawyer. Divorce was the most difficult thing I have ever gone through and Jennifer was very calming because I knew that she was going to do everything she could to make sure that I was treated fairly during and after the proceedings.

Competent Knowledgeable Attorney
Jennifer is a thorough, hardworking and smart attorney who accomplished everything she promised. I went to her in December of 2011 to handle my divorce. She knew exactly what to do, and also gave me the space I needed to accomplish my end of the process. When it came down to the final days of the divorce proceeding, Jennifer was on point every step of the way. I am now happily single, and it didn't take very long at all, thanks to Jennifer's diligence and knowledge of the system.
