I am so thankful for her services
My divorce journey was no walk in the park. It was a very emotionally draining experience for me. I initially was too nervous to continue going through with the divorce at first and she made it clear we could put it on hold for sometime until I was ready. I eventually came back and she was immediately on the case. Not to get into too much detail but there were some trying times Jeannine and I had to endure from her being yelled at by the other party, to requested documentation not being received and paperwork not being signed timely which caused a major delay in finalizing my divorce. It was emotional turmoil to say the least. However, I am so thankful for Jeannine. She was so attentive, personable, empathetic and patient. She always answered any questions I had and made time for conference calls if I needed them. I also received emails with updates on my case. When I wanted to give in and throw in the towel she fought for me. Although going through a divorce is tough Jeannine made this experience pleasant and ultimately obtained the best outcome for my family. I am forever grateful for her and the services she provided to me!

Divorce & Custody
I hired Jeannine to represent me in a high-conflict divorce/custody case. As a father seeking joint custody of my daughter I knew the odds were likely against me in Fulton County. Whether Jeannine thought the same or not she never operated under that assumption. She handled my case with a great deal of respect and concern for everyone involved. She took the time to understand the circumstances and what was important to me and my daughter and my priorities were always her priorities. She's genuine, easy to talk to, and always prompt with responses to emails or calls. She's a consummate professional regardless of opposing tactics. She was always the most prepared attorney in the room and I left every conference, meeting and court date glad that she was in my corner. I honestly couldn't recommend her more highly. The result in my case was better than what I thought was best-case scenario and if, for any reason, we ever have to go back for a modification or anything else Jeannine will be representing me.

Contested Divorce
Going through a divorce is always challenging but while working with Jeannine I always felt that my interested were well represented and that we would end up with a settlement that would be fair to all parties. She did a really excellent job at our settlement conference, was well prepared and had a good grasp of what the other party would accept, hence we settled quickly without the need of a mediator. Jeannine did her best to respond to my enquiries in a timely manner and made me feel like she really cared about my case.

Custody Case
Wish, I found Ms Lowery years ago. She was able to make miracles happen. Recommend her to everyone! Hopefully, I will never have case again but if I do I will hire Ms Lowery. Fast response time; keeps cost as low as possible! Fabulous attorney! Thanks

Jeannine was so knowledgeable about Divorce law and how each county works differently. She gave me solid direction and advice as well as encouragement and assurance that the process would go smooth. Jeannine took the time to understand my situation and was able to summarize quickly the path we could take to complete my Divorce in a seamless manner. I am so grateful to have had such a genuine and compassionate person as Jeannine represent me.

Custody Modification
I had hired Jeannine to modify my custody arrangement. She was professional and down to earth, a complete balance of what you would want in a attorney. She is a competent attorney who understands family law. She will always be honest with you and guide you in the right direction. She is quick to respond to emails/phone calls. I felt she took my case personally as I feel she does all of her clients. To sum up my experience with Jeannine, I will never hire another attorney for family law. I highly recommend her.

Client Dedication and Professionalism
I hired Jeannine's law firm for a very complicated case. There were several moving parts in a complex modification of custody case. Jeannine was the second attorney who was working on my case. She was drafting proposals, researching the law during the complexity of this case. To give you an idea of the complexity, there was a court appointed therapist and GAL involved who were bias, discriminating during the case. They had chosen to take the law literally into their own hands and no matter how compelling the evidence we had it did not matter to them. Jeannine played a huge role in preparing for the numerous court appearances and finding case laws for each motion and argument that was being put forth. When it came to mediation, Jeannine played a critical role in getting the custody agreement finalized. Jeannine is very quick and responsive. Something hard to find in many lawyers. I recommend Jeannine and her law team to anyone having a family law dispute, had it not been for their commitment and relentless efforts, I would not be able to settle my case and avoid trial fees.

Excellent attorneys
Jeannine is a fantastic lawyer who provides amazing service at reasonable prices. Throughout the difficult divorce process I alway felt like I had a trusted advisor on my side to guide me. Jeannine treats you like a client rather than simply a paying customer.

Jeannine Lowery
Jeannine was my lawyer for my divorce. I cannot tell you how grateful I am to have had her as my lawyer. She worked tirelessly through two grueling meditations to achieve my settlement. Jeannine was supportive and professional though out the whole process. At the end of this I'm happy to say that I adore her and my ex husband doesn't. Thank you Jeannine!

I cannot thank Ms Lowery enough. A case came up and I need a lawyer very quick. She jumped in and took charge and then an amazing job. She took a very difficult situation and turned it into a great outcome. I could never thank her enough, and would highly recommend her.

Excellent Divorce Attorney
Jeannine Lowery was my divorce attorney in the early part of 2015 and I could not be happier with her excellent services. She is extremely capable and calming during a stressful time. She is very strategic and had my future financial best interests at heart when I did not have strength to worry about it due to overwhelming stress. During the mediation process, she was quick thinking and financially agile and had great rapport with the mediator. I recommend her to everyone I meet who might be considering divorce or have any other family law matters that they need resolved!

Very competent, capable and a consummate professional
Jeannine did a great job from beginning to end. I had no clue how the divorce process worked, and she did a great job ramping up my knowledge on the subject very quickly. She developed a solid strategy early on minimizing overall cost as a result of her seasoned style and approach. Throughout the divorce process, we were thrown some very unique challenges, and she did an amazing job overcoming these hurdles. While I was the defendant/respondent in the case, she maintained a subtle offensive style exhibiting a strong command throughout. She is clearly admired and respected by those in the legal system (judges, attorneys, etc.) which is attributed to the level of professionalism that she brings to her job each day.

Unique case
My case involved my daughter's birth certificate and changing the information that was entered in error when she was born. Due to our relocation to Florida from Georgia, the case had some unique circumstances and I was unsure what was needed legally to change her birth certificate. Ms. Lowery was able to find the specifics needed and help effect the change necessary. Her charges for service were reasonable and I would hire her again if necessary. Highly recommended.

Excellent results
I wasn't sure if I needed an attorney or not for my case. A friend strongly suggested I consult with one before blindly heading into court. I contacted Jeannine Lowry she met with me and helped me prepare my case. She is brilliant. I could not have hired a more prepared competent person to go to bat for me. She helped me with a domestic situation involving my child. I highly recommend her. I am pleased with the outcome of my case.

The best legal representation you can find for family law
I am so thankful to have been represented by Jeannine. My ex-husband tried to sue me for contempt of court charges that were ridiculous. In the past, he had been successful in reducing his child support to the minimum. Jeannine was able to more than double my child support and all contempt charges were dropped. My ex-husband now knows if he's going to mess with me, he has to deal with Jeannine. I highly recommend her – she's a fine lawyer and a good person.

Divorce
Jeannine just emailed me my Final Divorce Decree, and I finally have a huge burden lifted from me. My ex-wife was trying to get $10,000/month in alimony for 10 years, and the judge awarded her $0/month in alimony with a very fair division of assets. My attorney’s fees were very reasonable with very detailed and professional invoices. I know she couldn’t have charged me for many of the hours she spent preparing for trial and the trial itself. The bills were much lower than I expected. I have personally worked with over 50 attorneys in metro Atlanta over the last 20 years. Many of these attorneys were in very large firms and now are partners in their own firms. Several of my best attorneys referred me to Jeannine. She is extremely gifted in her entire “big picture” approach to her case. She analyzes both sides of the case exhaustively for strengths and weaknesses so you can overcome or minimize most of your weaknesses and capitalize on your strengths, especially for trial. She prepares you and herself well on both offense and defensive sides of the trial process. Communication with her is very prompt, concise and detailed. I felt totally prepared by her for each step of the way through the entire divorce process of mediation and especially for trial. Most attorneys are not actually very good at trial. Jeannine has tried many cases so she is extremely gifted and very comfortable with trial cases. The order of evidence and organization of evidence presented at trial was perfect. Her line of questioning and train of thought is very engaging in the court room and thus people followed her very logical line of reasoning very well. Judges and jurors are people too who are more likely to follow a good line of questioning and reasoning with a highly intelligent and engaging attorney. Her superior questioning techniques enabled her to ensnare my ex-wife in many lies that very well might not have been exposed if asked in a different order and disposition by another attorney. This caused my ex-wife to lose a lot of credibility with the judge of which I believe led to a much more favorable judgement on my behalf. Jeannine is also what we football lovers call a “gamer.” On the day of trial her preparation and confidence shined with her “game face.” She was really ready for "go time"- trial which made me feel much more ready and confident through my part of the court proceedings. She did an excellent job of telling my story and presenting evidence in a more impactful and palatable way. I did some things before trial that hurt my case, and she was able to prepare me for what we needed to do to rehabilitate my case and overcome these issues in mediation and court. Jeannine is also a very pleasant, personable and enjoyable person which makes the entire process much more bearable in a what has been the most unbearable event of my life. Overall, I am very glad I was referred to her and am personally recommending her to many top attorney firms and my friends. Make sure you talk to her before you hire a divorce attorney. You’ll be glad you did, and then you will also enjoy the opportunity of writing an excellent reference for Jeannine like me. I’m sure.

Someone to hold my hand
I had no idea what to expect. Jeannine held my hand through the hole prosses. Walked me through every step and gave me her honest opinions. She was so helpful, so kind, and so prompt every time I needed to talk to her. She was overly prepared at every step which helped calm my nerves. I got exactly what I was asking for without even having to go to trial.

Satisfied Client
I needed a lawyer for a contempt of court case I was dealing with against my daughter's mother. She had prevented me from seeing my daughter and I was at my wits end as to how to procede and get my parental rights, to be involved in my daughter's life. The emotional strain was stressing both my family and I to no end. Then I found Clark, Lowery, and Lumpkin. The professionalism and dedication this law firm has showed me and my family really helped me get through and eventually win my case. My ex had made some serious allegations to prevent me from seeing my daughter. There were times over the year long process, I wanted to give up because my ex was with holding all visitation until the case was resolved in final court. Jeannine kept giving me faith, always reminding me what the eventual goal was, to see my daughter and secured me several visitations even before the final hearing. I can honestly say that without my family or Jeannine's constant support I may have given up, but I'm glad I saw it through, I won my case and got everything I wanted in court.

A great guide through a rough time
Jeannine helped me and my family through a rough custody battle that involved Dfacs. I don't know how we would have fared without her to guide us and fight for us. Although I hope we will never have a need for this type of representation again, I now know who to call if we do.
