Committed & experienced animal rights Attorney
Without the legal representation of Jennifer Dietz as our counsel, two dogs would have remained languishing in boarding. Her months of dedication to our case and these dogs spoke to her character and integrity. Mrs Dietz fought on our behalf to defend, mitigate & negotiate to reach a settlement between our rescue and a boarding facility that was holding our dogs hostage over a bill that they had padded to the point we could not repay it. Thanks to the settlement agreement Jennifer presented, we now have these two loving dogs back and they were able to receive the vet care that was being withheld. Mrs Dietz has been nothing but genuine, caring, highly responsible and passionate about both animals and the clients she fights so hard for. Our mission is and always has been quite simply to rescue dogs and anyone in need of legal counsel to assist in these efforts, we could not give a stronger recommendation that that of Jennifer Dietz and her firm. She is indeed dedicated to animal protection and backs that up through her actions.

thorough and accessible attorney
Jennifer assisted me with the legalities of a new business venture. She was knowledgeable and more than fair with her fees. Jennifer is always available for question and not the typical " rush you off the phone" attorney. She checked in on how everything was going with my business-I appreciate that she truly cares. I would highly recommend her legal services.

What an amazing attorney! We are lucky to have Jennifer Dietz!
I cannot say enough good things about Ms. Dietz! She went above and beyond for my organization when we had an ownership dispute. Jennifer has a huge heart for animals and for the people who love them. She is compassionate and extremely knowledgeable in this complicated area of the law, and seems to work non-stop (I got emails on nights and weekends... and she really put my mind at ease!). While we thankfully did not have to go to litigation, I believe that had we gone to court, Jennifer would have fought for us until we prevailed! Pet owners and animal lovers are very lucky to have Ms. Dietz specialize in animal law - she cares so deeply about her clients and work so hard for them!

Excellent Attorney - Highly Recommend
Jennifer Dietz help me and my family in a large contract dispute regarding my pets. She worked through the Christmas holidays to help us get our pets back from a kennel that tried to over-bill us for boarding our pets. It was a bait and switch tactic by this unscrupulous kennel/boarding company. Jennifer not only got our pets back but she got the kennel to honor the original contract. She worked very hard and charged half of what other attoneys wanted. We love her!

I have known Jennifer A. Dietz, Esq., since 1994. She has assisted me with amending an original divorce and custody case and provided guidance in other business-specific matters involving litigation. Jennifer's competency as an attorney is grounded in her knowledge of law, active application as a top-tier litigator and her passionate commitment to her clients. She is good to her word, meets deadlines and is a tire-less problem-solver focused on achieving solutions to benefit her clients.

Father's Estate
Ms. Dietz handled my Dad's case with efficiency and professionalism. It was a very difficult situation that she dealt with resolving expeditiously, as well as aggressively. And her concern gave me an assurance of confidence that my issue would be finalized quickly...and it was.

The most passionate and professional animal law attorney
Jennifer assisted me with a case against a Fortune 500 shipping company who ran over my dog on my own property. Many attorneys would not even take the case telling me "it is a waste of time and money". My Reba was a family member and with Jennifer's determination and passion for animals, we won the case. She encouraged me through the process and picked me up when I was down. Everything she did was spot on. I highly recommend her.

Bringin Pete and Luke home
Jennifer represented my family in a very difficult case. It was a billing dispute over 4 of my dogs at a local boarding facility in Ocala, FL The owner refused to give us our dogs, on at least 3 times, even with calling a sheriff deptuy and calling 911, although we paid over 2 GRAND, and still charged us. Each time she would keep the dogs, and would charge us more money, even though she would not let us have our dogs back. We hired Jennifer to help us. We filed a Replevin Case and won and All 'Bout Cats and dogs, owner, Liza Jones, even with a court order, still refused to relinquish our beloved family members. We now know why, our Isabelle, who we had for 7 years was DEAD. So we hired Jennifer to help us and help us she did. We went to trial and Jennifer was knowledgale, knew our case and we won custody of our other dogs. The Judge completely agreed with us that that our family members should never have been held in this manner. All came home except for Isabelle. we are mourning her death as you would a child. We miss you every day Isabelle.

Helped me get my dog back!
I worked with Jennifer in the past on a difficult case regarding my dog being taken from me unlawfully by an ex. The case lasted approximately 3 years. I came on to see how my old attorney has been doing since then and noticed that another review, titled "left me up a creek" had details that were extremely similar to my own case, only intended to be more negative than truthful, which to me seems to have been written by somebody on the opposing side pretending to work with Jennifer, for they have conducted their behavior and practice unprofessionally and childish since the very beginning, in court, and even after the case had been settled when it wasn't in their favor. Regardless of the review, let me just say one thing...Jennifer Dietz was nothing but professional in every aspect of that case and the law when I worked with her. Those types of cases are very few in number I'm sure. In doing my research before hiring Jennifer Dietz, I noticed that not many attorneys handle those types of cases. Jennifer reached out to me and worked with me every step of the way. There were circumstances in the case , which I am not willing to disclose, which unfortunately led to Mrs. Dietz having to withdraw as counsel at the very end, but I assure you it was at no fault of her own. While working with Jennifer, opposing counsel acted unbelievably unprofessional every step of the way, and through all of it Jennifer maintained the professionalism one would expect from an excellent attorney. Although Jennifer was not there when a verdict was read, it was through her hard work and perseverance that led me to get my dog back home! I really can't even put into words the work that was put in on her behalf. Above all, she is someone who really, truly cares and will go the distance to satisfy a client's needs! I do not regret hiring her, I only regret not writing a deserving review much sooner. Overall, I recommend Jennifer and consider her a friend for what she was able to do for me for many years.

Trustworthy, professional, not greedy
Jennifer is different than other lawyers in that she does what is right, and not for greed or only monetary compensation. She's represented me well and I feel she listens to what is important to her client. She's pragmatic and realistic in what the law allows and doesn't waste your money.
