My impression: Competent family law attorney. A class act.
The overall results from Mr. Jette were pretty darn good. I came to him with an impossible legal situation. He secured a good mediation agreement. Mr. Jette was stellar in aspects of the case having to do with family law. There were other, truly horrendous aspects of the case involving my child, her mother, and the other attorney. He didn't excel in discovering those matters. For family law matters involving typical issues such as custody, child support, parental responsibility, etc., you won't do better than Chris Jette. We did not go to trial, so I can not comment on Mr. Jette in a trial. He takes the high road in custody cases. No drama. No nonsense. I would think judges respect that. Good guy and competent as a family law attorney. Not particularly versatile, in my opinion, in other areas of the law. For 99.9% of family law clients, he wouldn't need to be.

Divorce and separation Attorney | Oct 21
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I have known Chris for at least 7 years as a result of having him as the attorney on the other side in a number of family cases. I have tried cases against him. His knowledge of family law is very impressive and his courtroom skills are excellent. I have to be very well prepared when trying a case against him because he is so very competent. But more than that, he cares a great deal about his clients and the very real problems they face in a divorce or paternity case. He is a very honorable man and a credit to the Palm Beach County Bar. If I could not handle a case for some reason, I would refer the case to Chris without reservation. You are well served retaining this fine lawyer."
