Jennifer Gilbert
I have worked with Ms Gilbert on multiple occasions. She helped my wife and I update our Last Will and Testament and Power of Attorney. Ms Gilbert has provided legal counseling and has helped review and amend contracts on several occasions. I have referred Ms Gilbert to several of my personal friends as well as business colleagues. I have always found Ms Gilbert to be very professional and prompt and most importantly knowledgeable about the law and she has show a willingness to research issues if needed to be able to give me the best legal advice possible. Ms Gilbert is always my first call in regards to legal matters both business and personal and would highly recommend her and her firm.

Jennifer is an excellent attorney and I was extremely comfortable having her handle my case. She was very knowledgable and gave me details along with possible defensive arguments so we were always prepared. I definitely recommend her for future clients. You will not be disappointed in her.

Strongly recommended! Professionalism and integrity above all! Best Employment lawyer ever!
I went through a company layoff and hired Jennifer to asses my options. Jennifer did a phenomenal job, explaining my rights and circumstance, and gave me a couple of options how to better close the cycle. Working as a Duo at her Firm Gilbert & Rivera, Kernisha and Jennifer, delivered more than what I ever expected, and kept me informed through all the steps on the way. Jennifer and Kernisha have a passion for their work and it shows as they successfully reach the goals they committed too. I will strongly recommend Jennifer, to whomever needs employment law assistance.

Excellent Service
I recently received a speeding ticket, immediately followed by mail from lawyers. Having never dealt with this in NC before I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. I chose Gilbert & Rivera because the letter I received was clear and thorough. I returned the letter and the necessary information to Gilbert & Rivera by email and I placed a phone call as well because I had a couple of questions. Jennifer answered all of my questions and also provided me with a timeline and expectations (I should expect a decision within 3 days). I was shocked at how quickly this was going to be handled! I was even more shocked when I received a call 1 business day later to inform me the situation had been resolved and the outcome was better than expected! I would definitley recommend Gilbert & Rivera and will use them again, if necessary.

"Jennifer Gilbert is Simply the Best"
Ms. Gilbert has my full respect. I was dreading the legal process, but Ms. Gilbert was professional yet caring. It has been a privilege to have her represent my case. She is thorough, honest, and knowledgeable. From my first conversation with Jennifer I immediately became aware of her integrity, commitment, and moreover the passion she exudes for her work. All my concerns were immediately addressed no matter how insignificant and she provided me with thoughtful solutions every time. Phone calls were answered in a timely manner she always made me feel like my case was the only one that mattered. Her genuine warmth and kindness make it near impossible not to become her friend. Thank you Ms. Gilbert.
