About Jeannette

Learn Jeannette’s areas of practice.

My name is Jeannette Watkin. My love of family and the desire to protect the rights of clients and their children, drove me to pursue a career in Family Law. I understand how difficult it is to navigate through our legal system in search of a fair resolution, while also dealing with very emotional issues at the same time. That understanding motivates me to give each and every one of my clients, and their families, my utmost attention and dedication. My practice is located in South Florida and I cover cases in the counties of Miami-Dade and Broward.

The lawyer won the case in court
The attorney Jeannette Watkin used the laws to deny accusations against me, which were only defamation about me, lying to discredit me. But the lawyer managed to get the truth out and she won the case.

I was recommended to Jeannette several times. When I spoke with her she was different from other attorneys I had spoken with, not only was she Genuine but had an immediate action-based Plan, and strategy,. I had a complex case and she was decisive and mapped out clearly what needed to be prioritized. She championed the case with such Integrity, ease, grace and never losing her cool with the NPD opposing party. Jeannette was & will always be a Beacon of hope to my family at a time one our options were limited and daunting. Not only did Jeannette defend us like no other but her empathetic demeanor was heaven sent. My family and I are eternally grateful for her service and I highly recommend Jeannette without reservation.

Aggressive divorce lawyer who is wins.
Counselor Watkin represented a colleague in his divorce matter. She showed herself to be a zealous advocate with her client's best interest in mind. Quite simply... Ms. Watkin is out to win her client's case. Attorney Watkin litigation skills are top notch. I highly recommend this lawyer for all your family law matters.

Review my lawyer
I hired Ms Watkin to represent me. My exhusband, an attorney also, choose not to adhere to the MSA agreement. Our initial consultation was very settling for me. I left Ms Watkin's office knowing I was in the right hands. Ms Watkin listened and understood my needs. She explained my options and the processes and also her approach to my case. She's readily available via telephone and emails and return my calls promptly. Throughout this case she explains every process and if I don't understand she spends the extra time to ensure I do understand. I find her to be professional, efficient,knowledgeable and reliable. I was kept informed through each process and every document related to my case was sent to me for my review. I even received a timely detailed monthly statement accounting for all transactions and fees. I truly wished I had Ms Watkin representing me the first time, during my divorce. The outcome would have been way better for far. Thank You Ms Watkin

Works very hard to make sure you have winning results!
I hired Jeannette after consulting numerous attorneys. She impressed me with her compassionate, calm, and knowledgeable approach. She led me through a terrifying process of divorce after 14 years of marriage. Very detail oriented, creative, and fast in responding to any issues. I felt Jeannette was dedicated and attentive to my case. I highly recommend Jeannette in your marital legal affairs.
