Compassionate and detailed care
Jenna was outstanding. She made me feel comfortable with the process and explained it well. Jenna made sure she understood the details and nuances of my complex case. My case was difficult and painful for me. She handled my sensitivity well and advocated for me every step of the way. I got my desired outcome. I could not have asked for a better attorney. I am thankful for her work, fierce dedication, and genuine care.

Victory Snatched from the Jaws of Defeat
I retained the Forman Clothier Law Group to represent me in a divorce action. Because I had unwisely signed a separation agreement without seeking prior legal counsel I found myself in an untenable position in which the marital assets were to be divided unfairly; my wife was to get 80% and I just 20% of their value. Another law firm had declined to take my case feeling that that my case could not be successfully argued in court and my fate was sealed. Mr. Alan Forman, founder of the firm and an acclaimed trial lawyer, conducted an uptake interview with me. It was immediately clear to me that Mr. Forman was a compassionate man, sensitive to my plight. He told me that the fight would be against the odds but agreed to work my case. During the course of the following months, his daughter, Jenna Forman Clothier became my primary advocate in the Montgomery County court system. I found her to be an enthusiastic and very capable attorney, quite willing to consider her father's suggestions and trial experience. Her court appearances were conducted with confidence and competence well beyond what might be expected from a relatively newly licensed attorney. The result was that I got a settlement more generous than the separation agreement provided by almost $60,000. If I were pressed to find an area where Jenna might improve her skills I would suggest she manage her time more effectively. There were several instances in which she asked me to compile information and respond to legal requirements in "the eleventh hour". We didn't miss any deadlines, but the stress of complying at the last minute was uncomfortable for all of us. Should I need Maryland legal representation in the future, I know exactly where to go! Thank you, Jenna Forman Clothier. Your Dad can be justifiably proud of you!

Gave wrong information
Ms. Clothier represented us when we were adopting a child whose birth parents live in Md and we live out of state. The baby was born in De which required us to go to DE. get the baby and then stay in Md. until the adoption was approved. Ms. Clothier was able to get the paperwork quickly but that was the last thing she did for us which was good. On the 31 day we were told that the birth father wanted the baby back. We questioned the 31 days being that the law said the birth parent have 30 days to rescind the adoption. Ms. Clothier said that because the 30 day was on a Sunday, the birth father had the extra day. The next day, we went down to De. to give the baby to the father. This action was extremely hard but the lawyer, Ms. Clothier, had informed us we had no other alternative. After we gave the baby to the birth father and returned home, we waited a couple of days and the we started to investigate the 31 day statement. When we investigated the law, we could not find any reference to the 30 day exclusion. Still not satisfied, we contacted another lawyer who also could not find any reference to the 30 day exclusion. We were then informed by the second lawyer that had we not given the baby to the father, we had a case to keep the baby, but by relinquishing the baby, we gave up all rights to keep the baby. Ms. Clothier should have know that there is no 30 day exclusion and not have had us give up the baby.
