A divorce is a life changing experience, one that I never wish to go through ever again. My experience however with Jill Jester as my attorney has been nothing short of wondrous. From the day I walked into her office with a mess that had become my life, she never let me feel any different or less of a person for going through something as traumatic as divorce. In fact, her stern but calm demeanor and professional attitude has made it an easier transition toward a better life after 21 years of marriage. I would recommend her and her staff to anyone seeking exceptional, professional legal representation.

I have worked with this firm on three occasions. An adoption, wills and other personal legal documents and most recently a divorce. In all cases I felt I was with the best. Jill provided answers, options and always a kind word. She handled my case with grace and yet was able to keep things moving. While fair, I always knew she my interests in focus. She asked the right questions, provided the answers and research. She is the one to go to when these very difficult times arise. Jill always made sure I was comfortable with the process and understood each step being taken, by both parties. She was always prepared, very honest and extremely responsive. I highly recommend Jill as a professional with a heart.

We hired Jill for a family law case with a very difficult opposing party. She handled the case with grace and composure when the opposing party was down right difficult. It took a long time to come to an agreement and a lot of back and forth but Jill was very professional and didn't mess around when it came to getting things wrapped up as fast as we needed them. We have used her twice so far once for the family law and another time for and adoption case !! She was excellent in both and I would recommend her to anyone and everyone that asked for a good attorney !

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Jill since she began practicing law in Denton County. Jill is an excellent attorney. She is incredibly smart, ethical and works hard for her for her clients. I would have no hesitation in referring a friend or family member to Jill.
