About Jennifer

Learn Jennifer’s areas of practice.

Born and raised in Concord, North Carolina, Jennifer R. Robertson, formerly Jennifer A. Rutherford, enjoys practicing law in an area with familiar faces and hometown comfort.


Jennifer graduated from East Carolina University in 2000 with her Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice, with a minor in Philosophy. Jennifer then sought out adventure in Topeka, Kansas and graduated from Washburn University School of Law in 2004. During her second year of law school, Jennifer was invited to be a supplemental instructor for Contracts to the incoming students. In addition to her leadership skills, Jennifer demonstrated early promise as a litigator in that she auditioned and won a spot on the trial advocacy team, an honor typically reserved for third year students. Her excellence in the art of trial advocacy gained her a scholarship and induction into the prestigious Order of Barristers. 


Jennifer married her best friend, Max, in the Fall of 2011, after having known one another since the 3rd grade.  They welcomed their daughter into the world in May 2013.  Jennifer's family roots thrive as her parents and sister remain in Cabarrus County.  Jennifer enjoys traveling to the North Carolina beaches and mountains.  Living an equal distance from both, it is a toss up as to which is her favorite.  Jennifer, Max and their Labrador retriever, Titan, often head out on a Friday after work for a weekend camping trip.

Caring, knowledgeable & Available
Jennifer has never given the impression of a stone cold Attorney. While she means business in the courtroom and works diligently behind the scenes, she brings her heart into her work. She Responds within a timely manner and makes herself available to address questions & concerns. She has fought long & hard for my family & there's no one else I would have. She has proven herself over and over. It is not often you might consider an attorney to be a trustworthy person (no jab intended), but I have felt my family was in the best of hands & I do trust her to have our best interest at heart. I feel confident with her at my side and know that you will too. If you're looking for someone to understand your case, to care about justice, & to get the job done, she is for you! You won't be disappointed.

Child Custody & Support
I hired Mrs. Jennifer Robertson for Child Custody & Support. Mrs. Roberston is very Professional, Personable, Straight Forward, and Gets Results. I had the notion that the Father always gets the Blunt End of the Deal. Mrs. Robertson proved that theory wrong with my case. I will Recommend Mrs. Jennifer Rutherford Roberston to all my friends and family, as well as obtain her for any future issues that arise in her Field of Services.

A Bulldog
If Jennifer can handle my crazy ex-wife she can handle ANY job out there. She is a bulldog in the field. I have, and will continue to recommend her to others. I trusted her with my life and wasn't disappointed!

Excellent "Father's Advocate" - Thank you for actually representing the father FAIRLY & VIGOROUSLY
Recently, we hired a new lawyer, Jennifer Robertson, to represent my husband in Child Support Court in Cabarrus County, NC. Originating more than 10 years ago, the case has been before the courts numerous times for various reasons. It has been my opinion that Cabarrus County Child Support court is notoriously unfair to not just him, but most fathers. Jennifer's representation resulted in an actual FAIR decision by Judge Hamby at TRIAL (not just a negotiation with DSS). In the multitude of times appearing before Judge Hamby in a child support trial, this is absolutely the FIRST time we were fairly, competently & thoroughly represented! She listened, didn't just "take the easy road", actually spoke to us on the phone, was very responsive to all questions, and although she deserves a life too worked with us to put together the final pieces of the case trial on a Sunday! She is a fresh breath for Cabarrus County! It does make me wonder if my former opinion of Cabarrus was wrong. Now wondering if the problem was the lawyers, maybe we just needed a GREAT LAWYER! We are loyal clients now! Recommend to everyone, especially dads! Thank you again, Jennifer!

Professional, Knowledgeable,Caring
Jennifer always goes well above and beyond what she is being contracted to do. Looking out for my best interests by using her knowledge and experience to guide me through what is normally a long process by asking questions and getting to the facts in order to write the necessary agreement. I couldn't have for a more straight forward cut to the chase approach that accomplished what needed to be done so quickly.

Jennifer understands this is not a money transaction but a personal and life impacting decision.
From the moment I submitted my legal question via email I knew Jennifer was the one for me. The ability to submit a question in the middle of the night and she responded by that morning I knew she was someone who was not only knowledgeable but someone who cared. Jennifer always had my best intentions in mind as well as my children’s. During this difficult time in my life I can't image someone who only wanted my money. She understands this is not a money transaction but a personal and life impacting decision. I'm grateful I found her!

Jennifer Robertson is highly recommended!
I highly recommend Jennifer Robertson! I hired her to help me w/ a child custody/divorce situation and she has handled every aspect of my situation in a very professional, yet personable way. She is reliable, straight forward, trustworthy and thorough. As long as she and her legal services are available, I wil seek her counsel.

Absolutely LOVE Jennifer!
Jennifer has been my strength through my separation! Things I wanted she got for me, plus things I needed and was too nice to ask for! She emailed me every time she had communication with my estranged husband. She answered me and made me feel like I was talking to a friend! I'd recommend her to ANYBODY! SHE IS AWESOME!!!

Compassionate and Informative
Separation and divorce is never easy for anyone. I found great solice in Rutherford-Robertson during my difficult endeavor. The compassion and sincerity given was encouraging. I felt that I was not in this unfortunate situation alone. This is a practice that takes pride in the care of it's clients. No stone was left unturned. During this life changing event, I was guided through this process with empathy and dignity. I look forward to their assistance in the execution of my will.

Child Custody Issues
I would definitely recommend Mrs. Jennifer. When it came to my kids I was looking for the best and I got just what I was looking for.

Dependable & Trustworthy
Jennifer is both dependable and seemed to truly have the best interest of our case at heart. She worked hard and responded quickly. She was very reasonable and very attentive toward any questions or concerns that I had. I have complete faith in her and would recommend her highly.

Dads beware!
Worse attorney in concord! I had consulted three other attorneys in the area who had known about Ms.Robertsons work ethics and had even said that she was friends with opposing counsels attorney! Which now explains the mess that has to be cleaned up by my current attorney who has recommended I file a complaint to state bar. She had failed multiple times to respond and or clearly explain what the status of my case was. She kept saying my case was moving at an appropriate rate. Well I had a child support hearing which Ms.Robertson had mentioned I did not have to be present for because of my work schedule. Well the day of the hearing she had taken it upon herself to not update me as to what the outcome was. No phone call, no email, no letter, NOTHING! Two weeks later Ms.Robertson had finally decided to respond to my emails and said what my child support payment was plus $1,100 of backed child support that she had failed to mention when I (the plaintiff) had filed the lawsuit initially which was a year ago. She was extremely unprofessional in her emails and few times I would attempt to discuss the matter with her over the phone. Eventually I had to fire her and hire a new attorney because opposing counsel had informed me multiple times that Ms.Robertson and opposing counsels attorney would discuss issues that were only meant for Ms.Robertson and myself. If you are a dad please look else where for an attorney. This attorney talks a good game but is a poor representive for single fathers who want to protect their children.
