To whom it may concern,
I was a defendant in my case with a Ex and I thought choosing Jennifer G Rose was the perfect lawyer to handle my case but, oh I was so WRONG she talks a nice game to suck you into her web of lies. Rescheduled court dates to
Swindle more money from you and your family, the Law firm will go into your account without your knowledge, Jennifer Rose will always act to busy to talk to you about your case once she has thousands of dollars of your hard working money. BEWARE she will tell you its 4500 to retain her once you pay that there is a hidden Replenishing fee that will Not be told about during your consultation. You will only receive calls from the firm about a replenishment fee but, not feedback in your case.
She took $4, 500 from me and my family and withdrew herself from my case over a replenishment fee and we never stepped into a court one time.
Response from Jennifer Rose June 17, 2014
I'm very sorry that you're disappointed. For the sake of transparency, we discuss in all client consults and then outline in a simple 1 or 2 page employment agreement that we both sign prior to work beginning, our time (as most family law attorneys) is billed on an hourly basis and the retainer is a prepayment for a set amount of time that is deducted from as work is done, not a flat fee. I don't charge flat fees because every case and client is different and I feel that my clients should only have to pay for the time I actually work on their case and not a guess on my part. The time every case takes to complete varies as there are factors which I can't know in advance such as how amicable and agreeable the parties really are or aren't. As to continuances, I use them rarely and only when necessary to protect my client's interests, such as to give us time to get depositions or file motions to compel answers from uncooperative opposing parties that may be withholding information vital to the success of my client's case in court or negotiations. I think being prepared properly for court is one of the keys to our consistent results and success which I'm proud to say is one of the reasons why I feel we've won many client satisfaction awards as a firm and our attorneys have won multiple top attorney awards from our fellow lawyers. Lastly, as to communication, I try to remain accessible to help my clients through a stressful time which is why I have phones answered 24 hours a day for emergencies, I often read and respond to my emails up to 2am, and I give each client my cell phone number. I do my best but there will be times when I'm inaccessible such as when I'm in court, depositions, client meetings, or church, if I missed you during these times I sincerely apologize. Again, I'm sorry if there was confusion, I don't want you to be unhappy so please call me so I can see if there is anything else I can do for you. God Bless, Jennifer.
