Amazing support, amazing staff!
In selecting an attorney during a stressful and tumultuous time, Jennifer and her staff put me at ease and made a significant impact in my overall well being as well as confidence in the divorce process. I have referred her to a close friend, and her experience was very positive as well. I will continue to recommend this firm, and wish there was an option to give more than a 5 star rating!

Professional and Caring
Jennifer has always been professional and caring during my interactions with her. We have leveraged her knowledge and expertise in several family matters. She takes time to educate her clients. Jennifer looks at the big picture of her clients situation and how these stressful times impacts her clients, and really focuses on making sure they feel heard and cared for. She is well connected so when we needed additional council outside of her scope, she was ready to provide a referral that resulted in an excellent outcome.

Amazing Lawyers and firm!
I hired Jennifer Riley's law firm for my divorce and I just had my first court date with Attorney Ravi Mohan and Allissa Mcdonald Myers today, both absolutely amazing at what they do. I just wanted to say how amazed/happy i am with how well they fought for me and never once stopped! I highly recommend this law firm for anyone struggling with a divorce especially if the other party is mentally abusive because they will not stand by and let you be attacked, They stopped him right in his tracks once he started his verbal abuse, which meant so much to me. I am so grateful to have this firm in my corner!

A pleasure working with Jennifer
I utilized Jennifer and her team for a prenuptial negotiation that my wife's family was pursuing. While it was an extremely difficult process, Jennifer provided strategic advise and counsel and was extremely attentive to detail. I would highly recommend Jennifer for anyone going through spouse/martial legal issues.

Positive review of Jennifer J. Riley's legal services
Jennifer was hired to initiate divorce proceedings on my behalf and negotiate a financial settlement with my ex-husband. Throughout the process, Jennifer and her firm were reliable, responsive and professional every step of the way. Jennifer's negotiations with my ex-husband's attorney brought my divorce and settlement to a successful conclusion. I appreciate the time and effort that was spent on my case and would recommend her firm to anyone going through a difficult family matter.

an angel for my family
Jennifer focused on my priorities. As such, the kids' needs were protected. She listened and responded with calm care at every turn. I had no experience in this field, and Jennifer's wealth of experience protected what I value most - my children's well-being.

Very pleased with Ms Riley's Legal Help at a critical time
I hired Jennifer Riley to help with divorce procedures. I had interviewed several other lawyers, and chose her. One of the other lawyers i considered clearly would not have been a good choice for any woman to hire in a similar situation. But Jennifer was a good choice. She gave excellent advice and showed great understanding and compassion of the difficult situation at a critical time.

More than a law firm
Jen Riely and her staff went above and beyond for me They protected me from making some terrible decisions. Her guidance was “spot on”. They held my hand through the whole process. Their follow through was amazing. Jen always got back to me no matter how big or little my concerns would be in a timely. No surprise to get a call over a weekend as the firm is always available. I was so pleased with Jen and staff and would recommend them without hesitation

Want A Good Lawyer, Jennifer is the way to go
Jennifer is the BEST. I contacted her in reference for my divorce. I was living in Arizona at the time and we spoke for an hour on the phone and I hired her on the spot. My spouse had moved back to PA and I was still in Arizona. This could have been very difficult but Jennifer made it so doable. She worked very hard for me, the situation was not a good one. My spouse was not an easy person to deal with and his lawyer wasn't much better. She is very compassionate and understanding. She goes that extra mile to get the right results. I cannot say enough good things about how she handled everything. I not only got the results I was looking for but she changed my whole view on who lawyers are. If you want someone who fights for what is right Jennifer is the one to have on your side. I thank God everyday for what she has done for me, she and her firm are amazing.

The best for a Reason
My experience with the offices of Jennifer J. Riley was amazing. I consulted with Jennifer for assistance with my divorce and throughout the entire process, Jennifer and her associate Patrick were incredibly kind, responsive, and more than helpful. I was able to navigate through a very difficult time in my life because of their guidance. I would highly recommend their services and would absolutely go through them again for any legal representation I would need in the future.

Highly Recommended
I enjoyed working with Jennifer and her law firm. I've worked with many lawyers due to my line of work, and I believe Jennifer and her staff are among the best. I've find Jennifer to be a fierce defender and protector of her clients' rights. She is not one that would allow you to put yourself in jeopardy and in harms way. If your opponent bites, she devours her your opponent with no mercy. Even if you are not knowledgable on the subject matter, she always takes the time to educate you on the law, presents you with options, and gives you her recommendations. She is timely, thorough, and attentive. She can be trusted to represent your interest and only your interest alone. Although legal cases are a frighten and protracted matter the breeds the feeling of seriousness and doubts, however, Jennifer embodies the meaning of "let's have fun and get the job done!" She surely has gotten the job done for me. You shall look no further, hire Jennifer. I promise you, you won't regret your decision.

Mr
It’s was an absolute pleasure to work with Ms Riley through my divorce. She is Professional, caring, thoughtful, and always quick to respond. She has a extrodinary knowledge of divorce law in PA and her insight to the practice habits of other attorneys in the area proved priceless. From day one through final settlement and from custody to property settlement, she was with me every step. Divorce is an unpleasant experience. I am grateful to have such a spectacular ally throughout the process. I 100% recommend her services without reservation

Thank you, Jennifer J. Riley ! You Saved My Life !!
I cannot begin to say how much I appreciate everything that Jennifer did for me when I was trying to find a reliable lawyer to help me go through everything that needed to be done for my divorce. I had been with my ex-husband for 50 years (dated for 4 years - married for 46 years). In 2011, I knew it was time for me to ask for a divorce. At 65, I began looking for the attorney who would help me. On the first visit I had with Jennifer, I knew she was the one, and the only one, who could help me. I cannot say enough good things about Jennifer. She helped me get through a very difficult time in my life. I could not have made it without her!!! There are not enough words to say how wonderful Jennifer is ... caring, sincere, reliable, helpful and professional are only a few. I highly recommend Jennifer to one and all!!!!
