Great experience
I originally consulted with Jill, and immediately I knew she was the one. She was very professional and educated. She did everything she thought was best for specific case. She treated my case as of it was special instead of “just another case”. I would definitely recommend.

Jill was an awesome advocate through my whole divorce process. She explained every detail and really fought for what I wanted out the divorce and got my ex and his lawyer to settle out of court. She has also helped me with any question I have had after the decree was final.

Excellent Lawyer
Jill was referred to me by another lawyer, that is also a friend of mine. Jill has handled my divorce proceeding and she has taken great care of my interests. Her rates are very fair and reasonable. I would recommend her to all of my friends and family.

Fantastic Lawyer. Best at her profession
I hired Jill Denman for my divorce attorney and that was the best decision I made. She truly is the best at her profession. Extremely knowledgable and knows the laws. She was always available when I needed to ask questions or discuss issues. She offered excellent advice and got the agreements taken care of very rapidly. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a divorce attorney. She gets results!!

My husband and I have been clients of Mrs. Denmans for over 5 years. She has helped us in so many ways! She is the best lawyer to have on your side in a custody battle. Mrs. Denman goes above and beyond to help her clients out. With her help we have won every case taken to court. I highly recommend her.

highly recommended
Based on a referral from a family member, I chose Mrs. Denman to by my representative for my divorce, which also led to custody and child support matters. Mrs. Denman was very helpful and understanding during my divorce and custody case. The meetings I held with her were very productive. She listened to all of my needs and concerns and gave me the most honest and straight forward advice to help me make the most informed decisions at a very stressful time. All of my questions were answered quickly. She understood the concern I had for the physical, emotional and mental safety of my child and continuously made his overall safety her priority. Mrs. Denman is well versed in the Mediation process. I was well prepared by Mrs. Denman for a court ordered mediation; we were able to communicate easily with the Mediator and steadily proceed through the mediation process. When a protective order became necessary and was granted by the court; Mrs. Denman explained the protective order in detail. Mrs. Denman’s staff was always up-to-date on the status and I always felt comfortable communicating with them. I highly recommend Jill Denman and her team.

Save your money and represent yourself or hire any other attorney. The law firm is garbage. Would give a negative star review if possible.
