Family Law Representation
AnnMarie took extra time to listen to my issues during my Divorce. Anyone who is approaching such a like changing event rest assured you are in excellent hands. You can trust her judgement and recommendations for a positive outcome…me as a client was not thinking as clearly as I normally am, and I only wish I listened to my attorney AnnMarie Jenkinson and have been more patient as she was. Do not try to end your battle ASAP but trust her whole heartedly as you will have the best possible outcome. She will seem to start out slow but not really as it seems because she is gathering all pertinent details then drops the hammer so to speak. AnnMarie is an excellent negotiator when it comes to mediation. Let AnnMarie speak for you in front of your opponent. Behind closed doors speak how you feel and trust in her. She had a very high level of integrity and you will see a very positive end result. Remember there is no race for the finish line and when you let her represent your feelings and demands YOU will get them. Personally I have a short remembrance to tell you all. My opponents attorney got in AnnMaries face waving her finger but she did not budge. I was impressed as it would not have been pretty if it were me. I am a very satisfied customer and highly recommend her for her professionalism.

Exceptional Representation
I hired AnnMarie to represent me in a contentious and complicated matter. She was clear and open with her advice and always explained what to expect along each step. It was evident that she had my best interest in mind from the get go but most importantly- the best interest of my child. She was also transparent when it came to billing and always responded to questions and inquiries quickly. I cannot recommend AnnMarie enough with any family matter. She will be aggressive when the situation requires but also understands how to balance that with what is in her client's best interest. We ended up working together for well over a year with many meetings and hearings (both virtual and in person) during that time. I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again if the situation arises. A true caring professional.

The best choice I could’ve made!
AnnMarie is a very dedicated and passionate attorney. She assisted me with the filing of my divorce, and was very responsive and caring during a difficult time in my life. I recommend her to anyone needing an honest and aggressive divorce lawyer.

Life changing
AMAZING FAMILY ATTORNEY We were so very fortunate to find AnnMarie during a very difficult time in our lives. She handled a very difficult parenting plan contempt case that went on for almost a year. She was by our side every step of the way until completion. She was always easy to reach, kind, and handled our case with the aggressiveness needed for our family to be together. We were even able to modify the existing parenting plan (which is almost impossible w/o both parties being in agreement). It is not an exaggeration to say that she changed our lives forever. I do not know what we would have done without her legal counsel.

Exceptionally trustworthy and competent attorney!
Divorce is not something to celebrate. However, when you find yourself in a position where you need a divorce attorney, I highly recommend AnnMarie Jenkinson. When I had my initial consultation with AnnMarie, I was very clear to her that I wanted to be fair at all times, but I needed someone to make sure that my rights were protected. My ex-husband and I had a 7-year-old son at the time so it was very critical that I had good representation. She was adamant from that point and moving forward that she would represent me in a fair and ethical way, but she would definitely fight for me and make sure that all of my rights were protected. She was extremely responsive to all of my phone calls and emails and never left any questions unanswered. She was truthful and never tried to sugarcoat any information. She always did what she said she was going to do - always. We ended up at mediation where I was extremely impressed with her abilities to articulate facts and information to the mediator. She knew what she was doing, didn't "show her hand," and came across as extremely competent and professional. I was exceedingly satisfied with the outcome of the case. I highly recommend AnnMarie to anyone needing a competent and strong attorney to fight for them.

I remember the moment I called the Jenkinson Legal firm and stood out from the start. The firm was immediately responsive, caring and got me right in for consultation. While on a brief receptionists hold...AnnMarie picked up the call to my suprise was immediately ready to represent me. I felt comfortable while representing my needs with a high sense of Accountability and Pride.

Very Passionate
My wife and I have been working with Mrs. Jenkinson for the past 3 year and she have been sure a pleasure to work with. Over the past 3 years of working with Mrs. Jenkinson I've had to gone to two hearings and she won both hearings. I started off my case with having every other weekend to then having my child took away from me by the mother without my permission, to now have full custody of my child with the help and skills of Mrs. Jenkinson. She is very passionate about her cases and has great communication skills. I would definitely refer her to anyone who want to WIN their case.

Amazing representation by a highly qualified, knowledgeable, and aggressive Attorney!!
Attorney Jenkinson provided the best representation in my divorce case. She is incredibly knowledgeable, capable, professional, and ethical while still being aggressive and highly competent. I instantly felt comfortable with Attorney Jenkinson, her high level of expertise, experience, and professional and caring attitude and I knew instantly that she was the best choice. It was a pleasure being represented by Attorney Jenkinson and achieving my desired results with her guidance, support and efficiency. Hopefully I do not, but should I ever need representation once again I would not hesitate to hire Attorney Jenkinson.

Highly Recommended!!
Annmarie was extremely professional and knowledgeable. When the case first started Annmarie was with another firm. When it was evident that the law firm was useless I followed AnnMarie to her personal law firm. Although the case took a long time (due to the county and not AnnMarie) there was not one time where I didn't feel confident in her ability to handle the case well. She was organized, thorough, and well-prepared for everything that was presented by the opposing counsel. Thanks to the expertise and professionalism of AnnMarie I have full custody of my children and can be a full-time father. The county procrastinated and changed my court date so many times that it took over two years. However it was worth the wait because I got everything that was put in the parenting plan and then some. To me her work is priceless and I definitely recommend her to anyone. She is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!

Modification to divorce (child custody)
My husband and I could not be happier with the outcome of our mediation with AnnMarie by our side. We got everything we asked for and more. We would DEFINITELY recommend AnnMarie for any legal issues you have. She met and exceeded all of our expectations!! We will use her services again should we encounter the need to do so.

Could not have asked for more
When going through my divorce Annmarie was not only very professional but I could not have asked for a better lawyer. I have since retained her services a number of times for modifications and have once again been thoroughly pleased. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a lawyer.

Easier then I thought it could ever be.
AnnMarie Jenkins made what is supposed to be one the toughest experiences in life into an easy mostly pain free experience. She handled the situation with compassion and knowledge letting us proceed as slowly or quickly as we desired. I didn’t enter into my marriage ever anticipating going through a divorce process. As me and my soon to be ex-wife grew up from our twenties we also grew apart. This is not something that I took lightly and AnnMarie understood that. As I came up with more and more questions and probably asked the same question three different ways she gave me answers both based on experience and reality of the situation. Upon making the final decision to separate she helped me negotiate with the other party and both come to a mutual decision on some minor contested issues. She also understood the importance of me retaining custody/possession of my two dogs and wrote that as a stipulation not just as property but at least a little more. It was a big deal for me but isn’t in the eyes of the courts. AnnMarie helped keep this severance of marriage civil enough that there is no bad blood between my soon to be ex and I. The paperwork was completed quickly and concisely and needed no alterations and we hammered everything out in the first few conversations. The filling proceeded quickly as well. She is to represent me in the hearing required by my county and I have full faith that will continue to run as smoothly as everything else.

Above and beyond
Ms. Jenkinson went above and beyond what I could have asked for in my divorce and time sharing. I would highly recommend her services for anyone in need of these types of services. I couldn't have asked for more.

Traffic Violation
AnnMarie was available with limited notice. After explaining my violation to her she was more than happy to accommodate my court date which was less than a week away. In court she knew what was expected and presented herself professionally and with authority. I plan on using her and/or law firm for all my needs.

Handled my Divorce Case
Ann Marie handled my divorce case with professionalism and attentive care from start to finish. She consistently applied advocacy for my interests first, while maintaining respect and rapport with opposing counsel and all parties involved. Ann Marie was proactive in communication, both internally and externally, and sought to move the case forward without alterior motive. I felt that her bill rate and leverage model of Partner / staff effort were fair and efficient, and appreciated the level of transparency displayed through periodic reporting on incurred time and expenses. Also, her support staff (Frances and Andrew) were excellent to work with and went out of their way to assist with requests, often in last-minute scenarios. Hopefully, none of my friends or close colleagues have to experience divorce as I did, however if they do I will not hesitate to recommend Ann Marie and the offices of Katz and Phillips.
