I must say to anyone seeking a AWESOME attorney look no further.. Jennifer has been a huge part of my life representing issues in my family.. She is cost efficient, stands behind her word, very professional, has a wonderful understanding ear to listen and will fight any case to the end with all she has regardless of the outcome you will know at the end she did all she could.. So as I said she has a 5 STAR from me.. And surely anyone that seeks her service will have the same feeling at the end as I do.. Jennifer you are Awesome!!

I guess you get what you pay for! Cheap is not always best, we should have stuck with the public defender. This lady didn't even try to defend the case that we paid her in full for. She agreed with the one and only offer the state presented then let my family member sit in jail over 5 months hoping he would take the "deal". She doesn't even know one client from the other, does not visit clients regularly, does not go down to talk to the state, only send emails. She continually said how my family member "scores out to prison", I went to get a score sheet and she didn't even have one. How can you swear by a score sheet that she hadn't even looked at? Garbage!! I certainly will be reporting her to the bar.
