Highly recommend!
Jill is an extremely capable attorney. She listened closely and thoughtfully to what I said. She explained the procedure in a straightforward and honest way. Her kindness is her greatest attribute. I would highly recommend her!

Superb
I hired Jill in her capacity as a divorce attorney on a recommendation from another attorney. Best decision I could have made! She was warm, compassionate and caring. Her fund of knowledge and expertise in her field were evident immediately. She was always punctual and always returned communications in a timely fashion. Her legal advice combined with her kind personality and passion for her work make her an excellent choice for anyone seeking a divorce attorney. I highly recommend her without hesitation.

Great Lawyer
Jill is a compassionate and knowledgeable lawyer. Hiring Jill to handle my divorce and custody case was a great decision. Throughout the ups and downs, she kept me grounded and focused on what was best for my child and I and how I could build a healthy future. I interviewed several other lawyers before selecting Jill and her decades of experience along with calm demeanor set her above the rest.

One of My Best Decisions Ever....
Ms. Harris is a top notch family lawyer and I highly recommend her. I hired Ms. Harris after working with another divorce lawyer in Virginia Beach who was happy to take my retainer and do as little work on my case as possible. In contrast, Ms. Harris was a top-notch communicator, keeping me in the loop on everything relevant to my case. Ms. Harris treated me as if I was her only client, always making herself available for whatever I needed. Ms. Harris's work impressed me on multiple levels. She had an uncanny sense of compassion and understanding towards my case. It was obviously an extremely stressful time in my life, but Ms. Harris was able to calmly and effectively help me make the best decisions for my future. She was supremely responsive via phone/email and I never felt out of the loop with regards to the legal processes that were occurring throughout the divorce. Ms. Harris possesses an excellent balance between professionalism and compassion and I would recommend her without hesitation. Her rates are extremely fair, especially given her expertise and knowledge. I would not hesitate to hire Ms. Harris again for any future legal needs in the family law realm. She's the best family lawyer in Virginia Beach.

Honest, fair, and affordable
Jill was my attorney for my divorce and custody case. While my ex’s attorney seemed to try and drag things out , Jill was eager to settle my case so I could move on with my life. Now that I am divorced and on somewhat good terms with my ex, I realized my ex paid her attorney more than double the fees I paid . Jill was not only very knowledgeable in all aspects of the law, she was compassionate and caring . I have recommended Jill to several of my friends and business associates.

Top of her game
I was originally using one of Jill's partners until my divorce became to complicated for him to handle. After switching to Ms Harris it was immediately obvious I had made the right move. She guided me through each issue involving my divorce, custody, and support. She was able to convince the opposing attorney and thus my ex to resolve matters through a settlement conference verses an ugly and costly trial. I found her rates to be fare and her counsel to be exceptional.

great lawyer and divorce
Jill was very helpful and very informative on my divorce case. She cared about the case and how I was doing. She was excellent though out the whole process. I would use her again and would recommend her to anyone.

Waste of time and money!
. Regretfully, Jill Harris Costen was my lawyer for 2 and a half years and could not finalize my divorce. The divorce was Not even a difficult divorce: no assets, children, or property. She will turn the file, bill you a fortune for nothing in return. Fired her and hired a new attorney and was divorced in 3 weeks. She is exactly what gives lawyers a bad name. STAY AWAY!!!

Terrible
I hired Jill to handle my divorce and custody case. That was over one year ago and she has done nothing to help my case. In fact, she has done quite the opposite by putting me in such a difficult financial position by racking up unnecessary fees despite my efforts to mitigate costs and seek resolution with my husband. If it doesn't make her money, she isn't going to do it. I would NOT recommend her services at all. She never operates with a sense of urgency, doesn't attempt to control costs, moves at whatever pace is convenient for her and is difficult to get any direct answers from. Aside from that, she has very unprofessional debt collection tactics.

I do not recommend
I hired Jill Harris to handle my divorce. Despite her promise to stay on top of my case, I ended up having to follow up with her constantly. Her service was at best minimum and always to her advantage monetarily. I do not recommend hiring her.

I thought the dissolution of my marriage would be the worse day of my life; it turned out to be the day I hired Jill Harris.
I thought the dissolution of my marriage would be the worse day of my life, and it turned out to be the day I hired Jill Harris. Jill Harris only has one goal, to incur more debt for her clients and simultaneously fill her wallet. She is without compassion or any moral code. Jill Harris is the perfect example of why lawyers have a horrible reputation
