Good lawyer, good person
Attorney Jackson is an excellent professional - competent, knowledgeable and personable. She listens and advises after fully understanding the client's goals or wishes and then has a plan of action. Her billing practices are above reproach - reasonable, fully documented and work specifically described. She never strays from her level of expertise and knowledge. This recommendation is based on personal positive experience working with her and knowing her excellent work habits and from positive feedback from client referrals. Sunny J

Astute. Capable. Caring.
This lawyer advised me on business and tax matters at a time when I was facing government audits. She was astute, capable, and caring. Thanks to her wise counsel, nearly all of my issues have successfully resolved. The right advice at the right time made all the difference. I recommend Ms. Jackson and her firm.

Estate Planning Client
Kristen worked with my wife and I to insure we completely understood the details of our revocable living trust, will and ancillary documents. We couldn't have been more pleased. In the 12 years she has been working with my wife and I, her firm as prepared not only a trust, but has managed the creation of our limited liability company, managed the real estate closing on 2 or our homes and has prepared life estate deeds on our many properties. We would recommend Jackson Montoya Law Firm to everyone.
