Posted by Frank
I unexpectedly found myself in need of legal counsel. I learned that it is a very personal and emotional decision to find someone with whom who you feel confident in and trust with your family matters during a very stressful time. After calling and speaking with numerous attorneys in the area with little success, I was referred by a colleague to Jennifer Fox. In speaking directly with Ms Fox I was easily convinced that this was the attorney for my case. Ms Fox took the time to listen to my story, outlined a legal plan of action, showed professional support and when she stated that she would be happy to represent me I immediately felt comfortable, and somewhat less stressed, about my situation. Throughout the course of my case I found Ms Fox to be very articulate and well versed in the aspects of family law. Overall she is smart, focused, and dedicated to presenting the truth and the facts. I liked that she was very straightforward. Ms Fox was able to explain complicated legal matters in a way that I understood them and provided me with nothing short of very successful, professional support and guidance from beginning to end. Her Para-Legal support, Cassandra, is also very patient, knowledgeable and supportive and talked me through complicated matters several times. Jennifer Fox came highly recommended to me and I am paying the favor forward by recommending her.

I retained her in 2015, 5-6 months after separation from my ex. Have been meaning to leave a review to warn others. Enough time has passed for me to calmly leave a valid review.
Pushed for discovery from me that was needless and never utilized by either attorney. When I indicated I needed more time and questioned the seemingly contrived urgency, she told me I "needed medication." Evidently she has medical training as well?
Pushed me to agree to move out of my house and let me ex move back in. Crazy right? Turns out it was immediately prior to her "taking vacation" then switching firms upon her return. I In hindsight she was clearing her slate with sloppy, hurried work. I unfortunately allowed her to keep my file with her move. (I eventually found a great attorney at the firm from which she departed.)
Refused to send an offer to my ex to buy her out of my house. Ms. Fox told me the "offer wasn't high enough." My attorney was negotiating against me it seemed. (I'm a CPA, I have a pretty good grasp on values, my ex ended up getting LESS when the house sold.)
She sent a letter to my OLD address (where my ex then resided) detailing my offer and why it was not sufficient. She had my new address on file but overlooked it. Luckily the letter was forwarded to my PO box or my ex would have received it.
I strongly suggested she should not charge me for this pointless letter...she didn't. Eventually I had had enough and fired her (my guess is technically we "mutually disengaged" but that was not the case.
In the end I wasted many thousands of dollars. I could give more details of poor work.
The divorce process can be a broken system that many attorneys use to churn hours, bill for every email (that's a joke) and burn through retainers. Don't do what I did. There are better options.

I am grateful to have found a lawyer who was forthcoming on matters dealing with my case. Mrs. Fox was extremely prepared when it came time to stand before a judge. I felt like she really took the time to know the details of my case. While in the courtroom she was a force. I can say without a doubt that she cares about the outcome of her cases for the sake of her clients. Knowing that I have a lawyer that does not only fight for me but also looks out for my best interest provides me a peace of mind. There are some lawyers that tell you the truth and refocus their clients to what the realities are in their case. Then there are lawyers who would prefer to let a judge do that for them. I am pleased that Mrs. Fox is the former!

I met Jennifer in distress of my divorce and custody of my son as my ex had filed for full custody. She led me to understand the process and was patient with me and my million questions through every step of the way. She took note of my wishes and put them into actions seamlessly. I did not have to worry when I was under her care. If there was something I needed to know, she informed me immediately.
When I feared I might lose my everything as a mother, she took care of everything and the end result was even better than I ever could have imagined. She was thorough and knowledgeable of her jurisdiction and family law. Her experience shows through her handling of her files and decisive actions. I would highly recommend her to anyone who ever finds themselves in my shoes. You will be in great hands!

I bryan had hired mrs fox for a child custody case from a mother whom has no where to call home, a substance abuser and physiologically challenged, who ran from a stable and safe environment only to remove me as the father to gain legal strong hold on my son,, at first we had a strong strategic plan but to avail,mrs fox filed at the wrong court, emailing me wrong dates and time and withdrawing key petitions, offering false court orders and backing down from opponents...Causing me to loose grip of my son, and not fully advising me of rights and what is to be expected through the proceedings leaving me vulnerable. .in the end mrs fox was emailing me with petitions with my wrong name as if I were the defendant relation... ( as if Forgetting who actually hired her)... I didn't feel as if she really cared about my case at all.. I felt she was just goin through the motions of what she had to just to receive payment.... strongly disapprove of service rendered! !!

Mrs. Fox came highly recommended to me from a friend who was very satisfied with the level of service she provided during his separation and divorce. I am very thankful for his recommendation. I had been dealing with an unfaithful wife for seven years fearful to pursue a divorce knowing the impact it may have on our twelve year old daughter. This was the hardest decision I've ever made. Mrs. Fox was very understanding of my situation. She took the time to explain that although divorce is hard on everyone involved, it is sometimes necessary. Her explanation of the law as it pertained to my divorce was thorough and professional. I liked the fact that she listened to what I wanted to get out of the divorce, then provided legal options, giving me the freedom to direct the outcome. When my wife's attorney redirected and made changes to our agreement, she was prompt in getting them to me and explaining what the changes meant and how they would impact my situation. When all parties met to discuss the agreement, many thoughts and ideas were mentioned within the two hour meeting. Not being a person who likes to make quick decisions, I felt confident based on her responses that she was looking after my best interest. She kept an open line of communication by phone and E-Mail regardless if it was after normal business hours. She even recommended counseling for my daughter and I to get through these tough times which made me feel like she truly cared for me as a person and not just a client.

Jennifer was recommend to me by another attorney to handle my hostile divorce/custody case. I had originally hired a different attorney but was unhappy with them. Fortunately, Jennifer agreed to take the case and I am so thankful for her services. She was very proactive from the onset, quickly put my malicious ex in his place, and refused to compromise with his unreasonable demands. She spent many hours on my case and got me the results I wanted. I was ultimately granted full custody of my child and a no-contact order with my ex. Jennifer was knowledgeable, organized always well-prepared for court dates/meetings throughout the case. I highly recommend Jennifer to anyone seeking a divorce/custody attorney, and would definitely hire her again.

Jennifer came recommended from another attorney that I knew, they described her as "the best in the Richmond area". I called to set up a meeting and was in her office immediately. Within the first 10 minutes of meeting her I knew that statement was correct. She has gone above and beyond for my family time and time again. I always feel she has prepared herself immensely for our court hearings. Having her in the court room with me has taken away so much anxiety. I know that Jennifer truly cares about her clients and their situation. She does everything in her power to make sure you understand what is going on. Anytime I call or email her I have a response immediately. Whenever I have a question, she exhibits great knowledge on all areas. I know without a doubt, Jennifer is the main reason I have sole custody. There is no way to show my great amount of gratitude to Jennifer Fox for the services and care she has provided to my family. I would recommend her to anyone.

Jennifer handled and continues to handle a very difficult divorce case for me. She has supported me in every situation and has shouldered the heavy load. She has given great advice, which I have, regretfully, not always followed. She has called after hours when critical questions have arisen and has been genuinely concerned for my welfare. Her explanations are thorough. Her behavior is ethical and fair.

I could not have asked for a better fit to represent me in court then Jennifer. She's very professional and can also relate to just about anyone. When my child custody case started I had no idea where to start when it came to hiring an attorney. I had 2 different people, who didn't know each other at all, recommend her to me. I gave her a call and seriously couldn't be happier. She has taken my phone calls late at night and I've sat in her office with her well after the building has closed. I even recommended her to my neighbor who was having child custody issues and he has told me many times how satisfied he is with what she did for him. She has represented me as well as anyone could, which is why I will continue to use her in the future with any issues I have regarding my son.
