Ms. Gjesvold, did an exceptional job handling my divorce case. I am very happy with her work and I felt like she went over and above to ensure my well being during the whole case. I would highly recommend her to anyone, who is seeking personalized professional representation.

I initially hired National Firm to handle investor fraud/breach contract suit on former business partner. 8 months into process I had lost all faith in my counsel. I can honestly say the worst feeling in the world is spending almost $15k in legal fees to find out you didn't hire firm that was best suited for seeking resolution.
My brother hired Jennifer Gjesvold on a breach of contract claim that Jennifer was able to settle in my brothers favor weeks after filing suit. At this point, I knew she was going to get me what I desired. I met with Jennifer to discuss proposed strategy to ensure we were on the same page. We were!! I decided to substitute counsel 8 months in to case and have Jennifer represent me. She stepped in with determination to fuel this fire. Up to this point opposing counsel did not have any reasoning to take this case serious due to lack of truly pinpointing any proof to claims in petition. Jennifer spent ample time and research catching up to speed and surpassing all expectations with a newly filed amended petition which quickly changed the direction of this suit. My goal from day 1 was mediation. I told her at our initial meeting exactly what I wanted and would not take less. In less than 2 months she was able to secure the ideal situation for my case. She did double the amount of work and progressed 10 fold than my former Attorneys. The moment I hired Jennifer I felt a huge weight removed from my shoulders. I had someone I could turn to and get realistic views/opinions/suggestions & guidance. It is easy to get so lost in dream world of "what if" when you are in a suit. At the end of the day you have to be grounded and realistic. My former Attorneys were just days away from crippling my case. The moment I switched to Jennifer I saw my case gradually progress by the week until finally opposing counsel was on same page and understood the severity of claims at hand. The results of this case were settled in my favor and exactly what I wanted.
After seeing her work ethic and knowledge of law I have decided to hire her as business attorney for my company. She always has my best interest at heart and never steers me wrong. I highly recommend to all business owners that are on the fence of filing suit for business claims to reach out and discuss your options with her. She will forever be my go to attorney.

Jennifer helped me with a trial last week, and her assistance was invaluable in obtaining a directed verdict in our client's favor. She can think on her feet in court and has great insight into both juries and judges. I would recommend her to anyone.
