I am proud to represent my North Texas clients in Texas state, federal, and appellate courts.  Our office has two convenient locations in Fort Worth and Burleson, allowing people who need assistance in Tarrant, Johnson, and nearby counties easy access to legal representation.

I represent plaintiffs and defendants in complex, commercial, and consumer cases. I have represented clients in matters related to probate and trust litigation, family disputes, breach of contract matters, real estate matters, and employment matters.  My employment practice extends beyond litigation, and I also draft and review employee handbooks, employment agreements, and non-ompetition and represent clients in front of various administrative agencies. 

I also help clients with their estate planning needs by drafting wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and directives to physicians.  For clients who are faced with the death of a loved one, I can help navigate the process for distributing assets and paying debts by filing for probate or the proper alternative.  I am certified to file guardianships and serve as a court appointed ad litem in guardianship and probate matters.   

I have represented clients in more than half of the Texas courts of appeals and the Supreme Court of Texas. My appellate practice concerns a broad range of substantive issues, including family law, will contests, contract issues, and real estate.  I have also successfully handled appeals related to procedural issues, from preservation of error to upholding a default judgment and severance of claims.   

Before attending law school, I had the unique experience of working as a human resources generalist who specialized in employee relations for a large hospital and healthcare system in West Texas and Eastern New Mexico.  It was during this phase ofmy career that I became especially interested in legal matters and attended law school.

I am active in my community.  I serve on my neighborhood's major fundraising committee, and did so during its most successful fundraising campaigns.  I enjoy the arts, and for many years I served on the board of directors of Fort Worth's pre-professional ballet company, holding numerous offices.

EXCELLENT
Jennifer drew up wills for my husband and I over a year ago. We were very satisfied with her knowledge and expertise. She explained everything and answered all of our questions. Great experience from start to finish. I had also referred a friend to Jennifer about two years ago for a free consultation to discuss the validity of a deceased neighbors will. My deceased neighbor, who I had known for many years, had willed his home to my friend but five of his friends said the will wasn't legal. Jennifer was able to obtain the will and prove it was a legal document. It was because of Jennifer that my friend was eventually able to take possession of the home. I always recommend Jennifer when someone is needing legal advice.

WILL TAKE CARE OF YOUR NEEDS
Lovelace Law and all the staff were amazing. Jennifer got right to explaining what steps I would need to take, and when I could initiate something myself she would let me know to save me some money. Chloe and the rest of the team were also eager to help! Anytime I needed to ask a question, correspondence was prompt and detailed. Thanks again for making this hard time a little easier!

Professional, Communicative, Efficient!
I work as a paralegal for financial firm in NJ named My Inheritance Cash, LLC and we had to retain counsel to help with business we were conducting in Texas and Lovelace Law PC was the perfect choice! The attorneys and paralegals that I worked with were professional, efficient, and communicative. The firm took care of our court dealings perfectly and with positive results. We could not have asked for better representation, we were highly satisfied, and would highly recommend Lovelace Law PC!

Real estate broker and former State Representative
I hired Mrs Lovelace to handle probating my dads estate and she did a fantastic job. She was very professional and paid very strict attention to all the details and deadlines. Best of all was her communication. Jennifer always kept me informed and explained every step of the process. She always returned phone calls and made a hard thing to go through much easier with her compasinate personality and proffesionalizm. I would highly recommend Jennifer Lovelace

Highest recommendation for Jennifer (wills, powers of attorney)
My wife and I recently met with Jennifer to create our wills and powers of attorney documents. She walked us through all of our options, and answered our questions clearly. At the end of our initial consultation, we set an appointment to return two weeks later to sign all of our documents. Jennifer had everything ready for us, and we were in and out in less than an hour. Jennifer and her staff were friendly, professional, and respectful of our time. I have already personally recommended others to Jennifer, and I offer my highest recommendation to anyone reading this review. Thank you, Jennifer!

Real estate concern
I had an interesting challenge when looking to buy a house. The house in question had a unique easement situation. I spoke with a Jennifer and after our discussion I felt better informed of the details of the title. I opted not to buy the property based on our conversation.

Beyond amazing!
There are times in your life when you need someone who is trustworthy, knowledgeable, persistent, and professional. Jennifer is that person. Having never needed the services of an attorney before, I was incredibly overwhelmed with the process. Jennifer was amazing. She was incredibly attentive and walked me through every step of the process. Jennifer Lovelace helped me through a very stressful situation. I would absolutely recommend her services to anyone. I will hire her again if the need should arise.

Brilliant attorney
After winning jury trial (as plaintiff) we faced endless appeals from multiple defendants who could not admit defeat. Jennifer answered each appeal with deftness and competence, and prevailed every time. She is clear minded and well researched, making complex issues easy for the appeals court to see our way. She is an outstanding attorney.
