Professional, knowledgeable, hardworking, compassionate. Highly recommended.
Ms. Swan represented me throughout a long and difficult divorce and custody case. She was very hardworking and professional throughout.

Excellent Skills and Personal Care
Jenni is the perfect mix of highly qualified professional with a compassionate human touch. Through a crisis situation that included filing for an emergency restraining order through what became a relatively clean and fast divorce process, Jenni handled the entire situation in a way that made me feel extremely confident in navigating a very difficult and unfamiliar process. Jenni knows what she's doing, she has experience navigating the court system and working with the various judges and their staffs. She knows how to get things done and how best to work effectively in the system. She is strong without being a shark, compassionate without being fluffy. She is NOT a cookie-cutter lawyer - Jenni listened to me, advised and recommended specific options, and then supported my decisions, and took the time to really listen and understand my thought process in defining the terms of my divorce. She made sure she was advocating, not letting me be walked over (She is not afraid of a fight!), but didn't push me beyond where I felt strongly on certain terms. Her ability to listen and work with me to craft a plan that truly represented a win/win with my former spouse made all the difference between a relatively amicable divorce and a lengthy, expensive multi-year custody and property battle. Jenni is responsive to her clients, I always felt supported and even nurtured, I felt like she really cared about my personal outcome even as she was being strong and advocating for what she perceived as my best interests. At the same time, she takes her own family/life balance seriously (my marital crisis shouldn't cause one in hers!) and potential clients should be prepared to expect phone calls only during (extended) normal business hours as a general rule. If you have concerns about specific time-sensitive crisis/safety situations, talk with her about recommended resources you may need as backup. What I appreciated most about Jenni was her personal strength and efficiency in working through a highly volatile situation, not letting things drag out, while making me feel like I personally mattered to her through the process. I highly recommend her services to others.

Great Divorce Lawyer
I interviewed several divorce lawyers in Savannah and none were the right fit. Then I received a referal from a trusted source that Jenni had successfully handled their client's divorce. I interviewed Jenni and it was a great fit from the start. Jenni was very thorough, professional and caring through what turned out t be a very difficult divorce. She was my advocate from start to finish and the results were exactly what I had hoped for! I will be forever grateful to her for helping me gain my freedom.

Very Satisfied.
Jenni was very professional, compassionate, and honest with me. It was very scary to go through a divorce and a child custody case. She kept me very well informed and answered all my questions. She was available whenever I needed her. She settled my case in a timely manner and I am very satisfied with the results. I would recommend her to a friend without a doubt.

Highly Recommend
Jenni came highly recommended by a friend of mine who is 'in the know' and I am very grateful for that recommendation. From our very first meeting I was convinced that she was the person I wanted representing me through a very difficult process.

Jenni will provide the Swan Song for your ex
Jenni described the divorce process thoroughly. She was extremely responsive to emails and was readily available by phone. She is very knowledgeable about the divorce process in GA and more importantly knows how the other attorneys operate. Jenni make sure my case was solid without extensive cost.

Excellent Service and Representation
I feel confident in saying Ms. Swan's representation is a must. She continually informed me of what was happening, what I needed to lookout for, and what was ahead. I completely trusted her with my case.
