Game & Life Changer
It is difficult to explain how it feels having to go though the legal process to fight to see your kids. My husband and I were dealing with his high conflict ex who made every single day challenging and hard for us. You will never know how an attorney can impact your life. Every stressful step of the way Jamel led and guided us with our best interest at heart with such kindness and patience, never judging us. She maintained professionalism and though she did not judge anyone, you still knew for sure she was on our side. She was always available and that played such a huge part in making sure we went about everything the right way. Jamel went above and beyond what we ever expected the outcome would look like and we will be thanking her for a very long time. Our lives have changed drastically because of the successful outcome Jamel achieved for us. Jamel and her team will always be in our happy thoughts.

Trustworthy and attentive attorney
Jamel Rowe is so personable and helpful in my child custody case. She was very easy to get a hold of and was always kind and responsive to all my questions. When my case took a different turn than expected, she was prepared and quick to adjust. I would definitely recommend her. Abby McNelis and Brenda Membreno were also wonderful to work with, and very kind.

Best Custody Attorney Ever
Jamel kept her calm, kindness, and understanding throughout our entire 9 month long custody battle. I say battle because it was the most grueling thing my husband, my children, and I have ever been though. But J was there for us at any time for anything. Her fight for us inside and outside the courtroom was pure, logical, and fierce. We’ve even followed her from her old firm to new - she’ll always be on retainer because we know she’s always there for us.
