Excellent lawyer
I am so happy that I hired Attorney Ruth Jean. When I was in my darkest hour in an abusive relationship with my now ex-wife, Ruth helped me through it. Because of the work of Jean Law Group, my green card has been approved and I can put those dark moments behind me. I highly recommend her to anyone who has immigration problems.

Ruth Jean "Best" Lawyer in South Florida
"I had issues with my Immigration status and had received plenty of advice from other lawyers before hiring Ruth. One day I confided to a friend of mine about all of the issues I was having and she recommended that I contact Ruth. I am so happy that I did. Before contacting Ruth, I was on TPS and was told by other lawyers that if I wanted to obtain a green card, I would have to return to Haiti. I had not been to Haiti since I was a child and was afraid that if I returned, I would get stuck there. When I consulted Ruth, she told me that I should be able to get my green card without returning to Haiti. I hired her in 2018 and by September 2019, my green card was approved and I did not have to return to Haiti! Ruth understands the law and she knew exactly how to apply it to my situation. I thank God that I listened to my friend and hired her. Till this day every time I look at my green card I tear up. Thank You Ruth jean for making what seemed impossible for other Lawyers , Possible! I recommend Ruth Jean Law Group to all my family and friends , no time wasted.

Professional and Caring
Due to the reckless action of a motorist, my son was issued a traffic ticket for rearending the vehicle in front of him. Upon contacting Ms. Jean and explaining the situation, she was able to get the charges dropped. My son didn't have to miss a day from school and his driving record is untarnished. I would recommend Ms. Jean without hesitation.

Experienced & Reliable
I hired Ms. Jean to assist with a civil case concerning fraud and a breach of contract. Ms. Jean is professional, reliable and was able to get judgment against the defendant I sued. Ms. Jean kept me informed of my case throughout the process and I was able to refer her to another plaintiff who had a similar case as mine and she handled their case in their favor as well. I would recommend Ms. Jean to anyone who needs an attorney to fight for you.

Immigration Petition for my parents
I hired Ruth in order to petition for my parents who lived in Haiti. She guided me through the process and was patient. She communicated what was needed and was extremely helpful through everything. My parents now live in the United States with their green card and I am grateful to Ruth for all she did. I highly recommend her.

Satisfied Client
Ruth saved me from a debt collector! I was sued on an old debt that I felt I had no defense for. I contacted Ruth in desperation and she discovered that the debt was outside the statute of limitations. The judge dismissed the case and the case could not be refiled, AND the debt collector's attorney had to pay Ruth attorney fees.

The best decision I ever made in 2017
We hired Ruth Jean from Jean Law Group for immigration proceedings for my husband. At the time my husband had a TPS immigration status. She became an important advocate in helping us with the most challenging moments in our family lives. Her attention to details and sound judgement enabled my husband to receive his green card in less than 1 year! She worked tirelessly in making sure we filed all the appropriate up-to-date application forms. Her pricing was very reasonable and the monthly installments helped at the time our 1 income household. I cannot thank her enough for the services she has rendered on our behalf. Hire her today... you too will feel like it's the best decision you've ever made! Good luck with your journey...

Waste of time and money
If you want to continually ask an attorney for updates without getting them and wait a whole month an a half for an email forward, this is the firm to hire.
