My husband left behind a very muddled and complicated estate with no will, loans that were owed him, real estate owned in several states, a construction project that was barely started, unpaid taxes, money in a foreign account that was frozen, a safe deposit box owned by him alone and a jealous girl friend who sued me.
Jean and her associates have helped me through the process of becoming the administrator of his estate, reactivate my late husbands LLC so I can continue the construction project and has countered the suit effectively. Jean has begun the process of forcing the repayments of the loans by placing liens against the debtors property which he has for sale thereby preventing sale without repayment of his loan. There is still much to be done, but I have confidence in Jean's ability to advise me and help me find the specialized help I need to complete this task..

Jean's keen attentiveness and listening skills combined with her years of experience, enabled her to cut through immediately to the core of my personal situation and needs, and to advise me wisely. She produced the needed document efficiently and expediently, and remained, and still remains totally accessible to answer any residual questions (all this with the help of her amazing paralegal, Jennifer. What a great team!) My experience with Jean was excellent and a process I was dreading turned out to be easy, pleasant and quick. You cannot choose a better attorney!

Jean has been my attorney for over four years and she is a unique combination of intelligence, thoroughness, and compassion.
Jean is well versed in the law and is extremely organized in court. She makes you feel totally supported and even gets back to you when she's out of town (and I suspect, on vacation).
I would highly recommend Jean to anyone who is looking for a well regarded, knowledgeable, and empathetic lawyer. She represents me and my elder mother with a lot of experience and understanding.
