Could not be any happier!!!!
Jessica was very responsive! From. The first phone call, until we had the matter resolved she was always 2 steps ahead. She made sure we understood everything and took the time out to explore every option, so we nail it the first try. You will not be disappointed. She was very straight forward and exceeded our expectations. We will definitely call on her if we ever were to need legal advice or needed to retain council.

When you need a firefighter because you’re a dumpster fire.
Jessica helped me win at an impossible divorce situation. There was no easy way out of my divorce. She gave me plenty of reality checks and was available for me especially when I was ready to give up. She fought hard for my daughter and taught me how to do the same. Her passion and talent is unmatched. You want her in your corner when you done messed up.

Parenting plan revised
I was wanting to spend more time with my children so a new parenting plan was needed. My first attorney talked a good game but was unable to back it up. I hired Jessica Long as my second attorney for my case during the year long ordeal. I fully wish I had hired her first. Ms. Long worked diligently with the opposing counsel and I feel like I was able to achieve my goal only by obtaining her as my Attorney. She was able to get me more time with my children; more than I would have received if I had stuck with the first attorney. Attonery Long was very informative throughout the two months she represented me. I always felt comfortable after speak with her; she gave great advice and kept me grounded. Attorney Long was honest with me throughout and I really appreciated that. I would recommend her services and definitely use her again if needed.

A Genuine Attorney, Jessica Long
I want to thank Jessica Long for supporting me through the hardest times in my life. Jessica was my attorney for my divorce in March of 2018. My ex husband and I couldn't come to a positive end result for our on-going issues that were lingering over us for the past 8 years. Jessica was able to bring a positive resolution for both me and my ex husband that resolved our ongoing civil battle. I would 100% recommend Jessica to anyone going through a separation and divorce. Its the most difficult, emotional time imaginable, Thank you again for your patience, and true generosity for both me and my ex-husband. You have put hope back into my life. Sincerely, LL

Well versed, honest, accessible, kind-hearted and dedicated!
Jessica was highly recommended to me by a very dear friend who used Jessica in the past. Jessica is knowledgeable and gave me superb advice, she took the time to get to know me / my situation / my concerns along with my fears, not just concerning the divorce, but what to expect after the divorce and how to deal with certain situations, it was like having an attorney and a counselor rolled in one, Jessica truly cares for her clients and it showed. Jessica is highly responsive to emails/phone calls and text messages (unless she is in court). Jessica far exceeded my expectations, I’m extemely thankful to both my friend for referring Jessica and for Jessica who worked hard as my attorney and did me proud! Thank you Jessica!

Jessica Long is the type of attorney that any potential client would want on their side. She is very passionate about her job and genuinely cares about all her clients. She is personable, trustworthy, and easy to work with. Jessica is extremely attentive and professional as well as straight forward and dedicated. I loved the fact that she was quick to respond to all my inquiries. My entire experience with her and the way she handled my case was great! I'm happy with the outcome of my case. I would definitely recommend her to anyone for all legal needs!

One in a million!
Jessica is truly the hardest working, most thorough, and honest attorney I've ever worked with. Obviously, needing an attorney is not usually for a pleasant reason, but Jessica definitely made the best of the situation and helped me to learn along the way. She does what she says she'll do in the time frame that she gives and keeps her client updated throughout the process. The best review and compliment I can give is to say that I have already recommended her to others, and should I ever have need for an attorney in the future, Jessica will be the only call I make!

An honest attorney that truly cares about her clients. She has never given me bad advice or failed to return phone calls or texts in a timely manner. A rare find indeed.

Jessica Long gets the job done with no excuses. Best lawyer I have ever hired and best money ever spent.
I have used Jessica Long for The last 4 years on various cases and matters . In those 4 years she has routinely surprised me with her willingness to handle her client's cases with tenacity and compassion, two qualities not often found consecutive . Jessica is assertive and knowledgeable in her profession and she takes pride in what she does, and in her clients . She is a go getter and she has always gotten the result I wanted despite odds. I am a very pleased customer that knows who to call when legal services are needed .

Great lawyer
My ex had a very expensive well known local attorney that other local attorneys seemed afraid of his attorney kept getting continuance after continuance my case had hit a brick wall less than a month after Jessica took our case we had a court date and could finally get the ball rolling she was not afraid to stand up to his attorney and I was highly impressed with her knowledge of the juvenile law system if you have a case centered around your children she is the one to have in your corner believe me you don't want her on the other side of the courtroom I know his attorney didn't she worked long hard and diligently for me answered all my questions honestly and most of all she cared which if you know attorneys is extremely rare to have a total package of fair honest knowledgeable and caring Jessica Long comes highly recommend from me

Knowledgeable, detailed and accessible, great representation!
Jessica came on my divorce case at the last minute. With only a week to prepare and almost three years of information to review, she got up to speed very quickly and was confident, which I found very reassuring. She was one step ahead actually. She was experienced with the issues pertaining to child support and division of debt/assets and made crucial recommendations that were in my best interest. I would say that this was her biggest strength in my case, that she was knowledgeable right away about what needed to be done (deadlines, paperwork, procedure etc) and the exact procedure for doing so. When I didn't know what to do I trusted her to decide for me. I found her easy to converse with, easy to reach and never once worried that my case not a priority. She explained the more complicated issues in plain terms. Her level of detail and professionalism was evident to myself and others during our court appearance. Very low stress experience overall. Really made it less scary for me. I would hire her again without a doubt and recommend her to others. I'm very grateful that she accepted my case.

Superb Representation!! Wish I could add another star!!
After 2 years of being misrepresented by my former Lawyer in a high-conflict divorce & custody case I interviewed multiple Lawyers over the phone several times. I live in Maryland but my case was in Georgia. In 2012 I was granted a year protection order and custody of my 2 kids and was able to move back to my hometown in Maryland with Georgia having jurisdiction. My former lawyer never filed for child support for me and did not tell me of hearings that I later found out I was deemed unresponsive. My 2 children went for summer visitation with there father in July 2014 and without a hearing my husband was given temporary custody of our son. The first time I talked to Jessica I knew she was god sent. She immediately worked on my case. She promptly returned phone calls and emails and if she told me she would have something done within a certain time period she did. She genuinely cares about the well being of your children and fights diligently for you. In July of 2015 at my final hearing I was granted primary custody of both children, child support and half of medical expenses for the children, which in the 3 years I was separated I had received nothing. I can not emphasize enough how wonderful she is. If you are searching for a caring, compassionate yet fierce and effective Lawyer look no further she definitely is the one for you!

Easy to work with!
I have known many lawyers in my life, and had the misfortune of working with a few, but I consider myself fortunate to have met and worked with Jessica. If you are ready to get things done, then by all means hire her. Her fees are beyond reasonable. She is readily available. She has good knowledge of the rules. She is a persuasive negotiator, too. Oh and she is genuine and funny... so there's that, too.
