Jere and Karri are a fantastic team. They both made my divorce process as smooth as possible. I appreciated their professionalism, willingness to help and empathy. They are truly wonderful people and I highly recommend them.

Clearly a very knowledgeable and respectful attorney
I met with Jere a few months ago, in a simple consultation, and he was fantastic. His knowledge of the law was more than evident, he listened to a pretty complex saga and gave us some terrific advice. He is respectful (which is VERY rare), I felt heard, validated and felt like anyone would be in great hands with him. What I liked most was that Jere seemed to possess an empathy I had never experienced with other attorneys I have worked with or spoken to (and there are many). I look forward to working with him in the future. The reviews for this firm are glowing and if you are looking for representation in a civil matter, I highly recommend at least conferring with Jere.

One of the Best!
Jere handled my case for quite a while at O’Neil Wysocki. Without Jere I would have not made it through the first year of this difficult case. He was always there for me, whenever I needed him. To him it was always about the safety of my son and it showed. He was always prepared and ready to fight for what is right. Karri, his paralegal, knows what she is doing and ensure that Jere always has the best information and is ready for everything that pops up. He will always be part of our family and we are so grateful for what he has done for us!

Jere was Fantastic in all areas of the Court proceedings. He truly understood all the complexities and drove home what was truly important in the custody case, that being what was best for the children. Great preparation and execution of a game plan!!
