Fathers matter
Jenna was an absolute delight to work with, as well as her staff. I was extremely nervous because it was my second legal dispute with my ex wife, the first being one that left me NO rights as a father. But; a friend highly recommended her, so I had my consult. Within 2 minutes of meeting her I knew she would do incredible things. She did not disappoint and kept the matter from having to even see court!! Highlt impressed with Jenna and her staff. Words simply can’t thank her enough

Very impressed
I needed help quickly with an urgent co-parenting conflict right before a holiday weekend. I didn’t know what to do, so I called Jenna looking for guidance. Within minutes, we had a plan put together, and within a day, we had filed all the necessary court documents. She was so responsive with each next step, and great ideas on how to word the documents. I really appreciate how she and her colleagues were able to help so quickly.

Excellent Attorney
Jenna assisted me with a divorce. She was incredibly helpful and kept me up to date with everything that was going on with my case. Came from a place of compassion and made sure that the settlement between my ex and me was equitable and left both of us feeling as positive as could be in the situation.

Wonderful family law attorney
Jenna represented me in a marriage dissolution (divorce). She listened to me and addressed my concerns. She was assertive when I needed her to be without causing drama and prolonging the process. She would give me possible options and help me decide the best course. I greatly appreciate her compassion during this time, and I would recommend her legal services to anyone going through a divorce.

Top choice - Assertive - Responsive - Excellent at explaining unclear legal concepts
Excellent work. Great outcome. Strong attention to detail and yet gets a the big picture concept. She cares about her clients and the children caught in between. Jenna has top notch communication skills. She concisely explained concepts that neither of my previous attorneys ever explained to me. She has a ferocious work ethic. She has quick turn around on documents and is very fast and efficient with digesting large amounts of information and being able to understand and summarize it. I give her my highest recommendation.

Review for Jenna Eisenmenger
Jenna was amazing. She was referred to me by my now husband who used her in a previous custody (he won full custody). Jenna was very responsive and helped answer all my questions. In mediation and court I wouldn't want anyone else by my side and I would NEVER want to go against her in court! She knows her stuff and she's not afraid of anything!

Dads care too
I originally sought out Jenna to begin divorce proceedings with my ex-wife. I was also worried about the well being of my child had been denied access to seeing her by her mother. She had a history with Child Protective Services and had several of her children taken from her previously, I did not wish this to happen to my child and believed she was better off in my care as her mother was exhibiting behaviors that had gotten her into trouble with CPS in the past. Jenna was able to not only amicably get me divorced but also won me sole physical custody of my child! She is hgihly intelligent and passionate about what she does. She is very approachable and knowledgeable about her field and will do everything she can to help you. Her approach is friendly and even though she is busy she is always available to answer client questions or concerns. It was her excellent attention to details and fantastic work ethic that allowed her to go the extra step others admitted they would not have done, this extra step was crucial in my case and added more wood to the proverbial fire and helped us win our case. Overall she has a high work ethic, will work as fast as you get her what she needs, and is readily available to answer questions. I would highly recommend her services and have done so.

Helped with emergency custody order
I hired Jenna from a referral. She helped me get an emergency order in place and guide my through the process to get a permanent order changed which I've been told isn't a small feat from other lawyers. Everything worked out well and she was helpful.

Do NOT use her
I hired Jenna for family law and it was an awful experience. All she was worried about was money. She didn't listen to anything I was telling her and would twist my words around. I ended up firing her and wasting what money I did spend on her to find a way better attorney. I wouldn't recommend her for anything.

DO NOT USE HER!!!!!!!!!!!
Absolute biggest mistake of my life. She nickel and dimed me to death so I couldn't afford to go to trial. Has no experience. Just goes by the book. Now my children and stuck 50/50 with a verbally abusive father. They are in fear of him. And I am going to end up paying him child support. Also recommended a PC who cannot do anything she said he'd do for me. Completely ruined my kids mental health and stability. DO NOT USE HER!

No experience
I hired her for a family case and she has no experience and just wants money. She’s not professional at all. She never even met me between court hearings. Only met with her 15 minutes before going into the courtroom. The judge snapped at her because she wasn’t prepared and didn’t read the court documents before the hearings. She charged me $5000 for 2 court hearings and never met with me and mostly had her paralegal communicate with me. She’s money hungry. I tried to sit with her between hearings and she never had time. Only time we met with each other was in the court lobby next to the vending machines. A 15 minute meeting cost $5000 and after this she never met with me again. Then she only communicated through email after she took my money(which each email costs $250). She doesn’t accept phone calls and only calls from a blocked number. At the end I don’t recommend that anyone waste their money. She doesn’t make her client feel comfortable or relaxed and always negative. That’s why I fired her. I lost my money but I don’t care because I don’t want to lose my kid. All this money I paid her she told me I used up the entire retainer from all the emails because she never had the time to sit with me nor to even speak over the phone with me.
