Estate Settlement Dispute
Attorney Jeanne Armstrong represented my interest in the extremely convoluted and contentious process of settling my father's estate. Although six other attorneys and firms were involved, Attorney Armstrong and her firm were the only ones aware of the statute that was the actual turning point of the process. As a result of her knowledge and legal skills, two of my sisters and I received substantially better settlements than had been proposed. Attorney Armstrong worked diligently for me, often late into the night, over weekends, and on holidays. She was easy to reach and returned every phone call, email, and text message extremely promptly. My ideas and opinions were welcomed , and she extended careful consideration to them. Over the past fifty years, I've used the services of several different attorneys. None equaled Attorney Armstrong in knowledge, dedication, communication, or consideration.

Excellent Litigation Attorney
I hired Jeanne to help me with a complex business litigation matter and she made what would have been a very time consuming and stressful process workable. By this I mean that I was able to continue to handle my other business matters while the litigation was winding its way to a conclusion. She was very effective in dealing with opposing counsel. Her written and verbal communication with myself and opposing counsel was always excellent. I couldn't have said things in a clearer or more effective manner. The end result was the best result I could have hoped for under the circumstances.
