Caring, Compassionate and Competent
Jenny handled my estate planning, she was very knowledgable, informative, and easy to talk to. She answered all of my questions and I never felt rushed through the appointment or a phone call. I would highly recommend this attorney and will be contacting her again if needed in the future.

Outstanding job
I am thoroughly happy with the services I have received from Mrs. Jenny. She is kind, and very attentive. Loving my results so far, but we still have more ground to cover.

Not only was Jenny attentive to my case, she considered every aspect of the case and helped me through the entire process. You can’t find a better attorney in my opinion!

Compassionate Attorney!
Jenny was very helpful to my family during our time of need. She worked with us to help us understand the succession process and was always willing to answer all of our questions. After the experience with the succession, several of us decided to use her for our personal estate planning needs. I had called many attorneys for estimates on costs and fees and she was by far the most reasonable! I highly recommend Jenny!
