Great attorney
When I was looking for a Family law attorney, Jen always stood out. She came highly recommended by others and she did not disappoint! Jen is very reassuring and calming, while giving my case the attention it needed behind the scenes. Jen is very professional, and very knowledge in family law cases. I will recommend Jen Chase and her firm to anyone that needs a family law attorney.
