Phenomenal Attorney
I have never been in a legal matter all of my life. However upon a very sensitive, family matter involving a child we knew we needed legal advice! After seeking several others, we were in a conversation with a fellow attorney who highly recommended Attorney Jennifer Dickens! Upon this fellow Attorney hearing a snippet of our situation, she strongly recommended Attorney Dickens for our matter. From the initial consultation, the extensive phone calls, text messages, emails and consistent communication from Attorney Dickens and her team; we really don't have adequate words to convey our satisfaction with this office. This was a very intricate, delicate, emotional and sensitive case! Attorney Dickens represented us professionally & ethically! She and her office did their due diligence to acquire the necessary materials to represent us and achieve our desired outcome. Attorney Dickens is fair, honest, straightforward but compassionate in her approach to you and the sensitivity of your matter. She was flexible with legal cost and was willing to work with us upon retaining her services! We showed up on the day of our hearing confident and optimistic. She came through for us and we are so grateful for the outcome we received! This was never about us and we shared that on day one of our consultation. She kept our desire in mind as she navigated this process. That meant the world to us!! She provides multiple scenarios, gives you the law and explains everything simply! We highly recommend Attorney Jennifer Dickens for your Family Legal Matters.

Excellent Family Lawyer
Dickens Law Firm recently represented me in a custody dispute with relocation. Mrs. Dickens and her staff were available when I needed them, they were responsive and provided realistic outcomes. In mediation and in trial, Mrs. Dickens was prepared, and handled the questioning expertly. I feel I was well represented in my case and I am pleased with the outcome. If I find myself needing a family lawyer in the future I won't hesitate to call Mrs. Dickens again.

Family law
10/10... I believe, Jennifer and her team have done/do everything in their power to make this as smooth as they possibly could for me. They’re always just a phone call away to explain things to me that I just don’t understand, keep me updated regularly & have also helped me smile after so many tears. The strongest backbone I could’ve asked for. This process hasn’t been easy, but I’m sooo thankful for the attorney I chose to walk this walk with me. Y’all are amazing && I can’t say it enough. -cb

The Law firm of Jennifer Dickens
The Jennifer Dickens Law firm is unequivocally the best law firm that I have had the pleasure of working with for my cases, as they pertain to family law. Jennifer Dickens along with her legal assistant, Samantha Southard are the consummate professionals that any parent should trust, to work diligently in ensuring that their parental rights are protected during the difficult process of divorce, as well as with the execution and enforcement of state mandated parental court orders thereafter. With recent changes to Florida Family Law statues, The Dickens Law firm has helped to ensure that my parental rights are protected and adhered to by the co-parent. Ms. Dickens along with her staff are working diligently in ensuring that recent updates to Florida's Family Law, will be exercised in fairness, for not only the best interest of my 8 year old child, but as well as for both co-parents. Divorces are difficult for both children and parents to go thru, as such the proper execution of divorce decrees aren't always adhered to by the co parent, luckily for my daughter and myself, a process exists in ensuring that a continued resolution exists with the adherence to Florida's Family Law. When retaining Jennifer as your family attorney, you can rest assured in knowing that she will always treat you and your family with respect, dignity, professionalism and with the utmost fairness for your particular family law case. -William Tschumy, single father, United States Navy

Great Lawyer!!
Ms. Dickens is very knowledgeable and experienced in the courtroom. I couldn't ask for a better attorney to represent me. She was clear and to the point with ALL the information I need for my case. She gave me ALL the possibilities that could happen so I wouldn't be surprise of the outcome. Thanks to Ms. Dickens professional knowledge and aggressive stand, my case work out in my best interest. I would hire her over and over for any issue I have but I hope we don't have to meet in court again. LOL!! Jennifer Dickens is an OUSTANDING lawyer and will represent you to the fullest extent possible and for your BEST interest.

Attorney Dickens was very helpful and took care of our me like I was family, not just another customer. At no time did I feel like just another case to her and her staff. She handled everything in a timely manner and the whole thing was over before I knew it. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

"The-go-to-attorney" in Jacksonville
I hired Ms. Dickens after being sued for paternity by the father who had never been involved in my child's life since day one. As one can imagine, this is probably the most painful, sensitive time you can go through. From day one, Ms. Dickens was supportive, strong and confident which lifted me out of the scared and worried place I had found myself. Once I had retained The Dickens Law Firm, I felt like my burden was no longer mine to carry. She is attentive and available by phone and even text what seemed to be 24/7. She was so thorough with the process and let me ask every question I had without ever rushing me. I felt like her only client! I cannot recommend Ms. Dickens highly enough. She is personable and down to earth and truly understands the emotional turmoil a process like this puts on a person. With rates that were very affordable, I was able to survive this painful process and in the end, came out with even more than expected or promised. The Dickens Law Firm truly saved my family. I am so grateful and cannot thank you enough.

Dependable, Hard Working and Caring
I hired Ms. Dickens as my attorney and I was VERY pleased with my results. I don’t usually leave reviews but I feel that her work was worthy of a review if someone was seeking any legal services. Upon our first meeting I got the feeling that she actually cared about my situation and wasn’t just another lawyer seeking a case for money. We talked and she assured me that she would do her best to help me. I communicated with her several times, she was easily available unless she was in court, but she responds back to emails, texts and voicemails in a timely manner. I also had contact with her staff and had no issues. She made sure I was always in the loop of what was going on in my case (rulings,court dates), whether it was by calling me directly or emailing the documents I needed. Throughout the whole process I had no issues. This was my first time using an attorney and was nervous of all the legal lingo and how the judicial system worked but I felt so at ease with her assistance. I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing a lawyer in the Jacksonville area. She will give her all and make sure you are taken care of. This will be my Go To lawyer if I ever have any more legal issues.

Amazing and Dependable
Ms. Dickens was very professional, she took care of everything for me. With a busy schedule at work she managed to get the exact reaults I was hoping for without me needing to get involved. She was also very seasonal with her rates, she really cares about her clients and helping in any way possible.

Jennifer Dickens, an asset to her profession and her community! Astounding!
Jennifer Dickens was referred by my doctor and she spoke very highly of her. When we met I immediately felt calm and secure. I went on to retain her for my proceedings. She showed up, immediately reviewed documents and all she said was, “see you on Monday”. I felt comfortable, I felt as though I had nothing to worry or fear. She is very comfident and to the point. Not only does she represents, she presents on your behalf. Any sort of legalities can be difficult but she exemplifies pure compassion and empathy. She advised me as if she were talking to her family. It’s one thing to have concern in a legal matter but it’s a whole different story to feel so secure in your representation. Jennifer Dickens ensures that you understand every twist and turn and is quite frankly an attorney who values her clients. Her staff is remarkable. They compliment her very well. I just felt so covered. Amazing! An absolute asset to her profession and industry!

Ms. Dickens was so helpful throughout the entire process and made it much more tolerable. She fought for me during Mediation and helped put my mind at ease. I was able to truly focus and relax with her by my side

Thankful Client
Ms. Dickens has truly been my savior and her litigation skills, compassion and fairness are only a few of the many reasons that I choose to hire her to represent me! Not only did she represent me, she achieved victory for me when I was up against the darkest force that I have ever faced! She ensured that my baby will stay right here, with me, where he belongs! For that she is truly my angel! I have the utmost respect for Ms. Dickens as my attorney and all of those whom are on her team. Her entire staff was empathetic to my situation with my ex husband and always ready to help. And again, I recognize and appreciate how extremely fair she always is!

Highly recommend!!
I feel that Ms. Dickens is an excellent attorney and did a great and professional job at Trial. We feel that Ms. Dickens chose a path (which she represented to us prior to trial), she stayed with it and presented the facts without engaging in the tit for tat. In the time frame given, I feel that Ms. Dickens expressed the major points to the court and now it is in the Judge's hands to use what you gave him and his experience to make the final decision. I am at peace with that decision and have come to terms with it even if it isn't the outcome we hoped for. A huge thank you for continuing to provide me with the highest level of Legal Representation and the utmost confidence in her representation and the excellent service she provides.

Went far beyond my expectations of representation
I have been a client of Ms. Dickens for over two years. She is by far the most knowledgeable lawyer I have encountered. For lack of better words I have to call her my angel. She took care of me and my two daughters. She has changed the course of their lives for the better. She fought for me and for their protection. She was very responsive, patient, professional and by far exceeded my expectations. If you are looking for a lawyer that will fight for you till the end. you can trust she will get the job done. She will never let you down. I will never go to anyone else. Although professional she has a very compassionate heart and those two qualities combined make her the best choice if your looking for representation. I can't stress enough how wonderful of a job she did for me and my daughters. I trust her completley and I feel she works hard for every one of her clients. I could go on and on. But there is no one that compares to her at all. She is absolutely amazing at what she does.

Rough times made easier.
Jennifer is an amazing attorney. The entire process of divorce and child custody is the hardest thing anyone can go through. She always maintained complete professionalism even when my emotions ran high. I could always reach her and her staff goes above and beyond anything I have ever experienced. I absolutely without a shadow of a doubt recommend her to anyone going through this difficult time.
