By FAR the most conscientious informative attorney I have ever worked with, I felt like my rights were protected to the fullest and that showed in the outcome. A Domestic Violence case is sensitive to say the least as well as having a restraining order possibly placed upon you, Jennifer took care of my case with great care and understanding and I was relieved to say the very least! A+ in professionalism, compassion as well as legal knowledge, Thank you a million times over!

I had the good fortune to be referred to Jennifer Gardner by another attorney who was unable to take my case. What a wonderful turn of events! Ms. Gardner represented me for a jury trial in Los Angeles Superior Court with a case that involved two counts of fraud, breach of contract, and quantum merit, among other things. Ms.Gardner brought in a unanimous jury verdict where all 12 jurors expediently decided in my favor. The jurors only quibbled over the amount of money I was to be awarded, which was well into six figures.
Ms. Gardner's preparation for the trial and her professional conduct during the trial was extraordinary. She handled the jury selection, the witnesses, including myself, the documentary evidence, and the Judge as though she was conducting an orchestra. Ms. Gardner was open to collaborating with me on all aspects of the litigation from discovery, trial preparation, trying the case, and polling the jury after our successful verdict.
In my experience Ms. Gardner is resourceful, intelligent, creative, and a born litigator. Above all, she conducted herself professionally at all times, even when opposing counsel did not. I would recommend Ms. Gardner to anyone, no matter how complicated or difficult their case may be. I have referred her to represent other attorneys, and I am likely to engage her services again myself, should the need arise.

The combination between Jennifer and her partner Mark McBride, all I can say is WOW, what a team. They work hand in hand together seamlessly. Between her litigation and civil experience, and Mark's lengthy criminal experience, you can't go wrong in hiring them. They are both honest and won't hold anything back. My case was settled with the best outcome possible and am grateful to both of them.

Ms. Gardner handled a domestic violence case for me about six months ago. My ex set me up and called the cops on me when i was on parole during a fight. They arrested me, and charged me with adw, resisting arrest, and assault. I thought I was going back to prison,but Ms. Gardner did a great job of defending me and thankfully that did not happen. She was great with my family, talking to them regularly about my case and my chances. We are all extremely grateful to her. I hope I never need another attorney but I would definitely use her again.

I cannot praise Ms. Gardner enough! An atypical attorney possessing integrity, she is genuine, highly focused, brilliant, and bears teeth [in court].
Possessing nearly a quarter of a century in experience practising law, Ms. Gardner works tirelessly for her clients and sheds no doubt as to her dedication to the client. She maintains an excellent "batting average," is skilful and deft at interpreting the law and strategising…and she wins!
I was a defendant in a true “David and Goliath” scenario, a highly unique, complex and difficult case involving different aspects within various bodies of civil law. [Contractual Business, Business Partnerships, Real Estate, Fraud, Domestic Partnerships and Family Law, among others.] Ms. Gardner pled my case with professionalism and grace. Despite the deck being stacked against me in the frivolous lawsuit I became entangled in, Ms. Gardner procured a judgement in my favour! Even she was gobsmacked at the magnitude of the outcome.
Ms. Gardner does not mince words and speaks frankly. Her legal briefs and arguments are concise and easy to read. And, she succinctly explains the law with respect to your case in laymen’s terms.
She genuinely cares about the overall emotional and financial well-being of her clients. Additionally, she maintains a positive attitude and outlook, which is essential when one’s life seems to “hang in the balance” on the potential outcome.
Speaking from my own experience, I can say Ms Gardner’s positivism got me through some rather bleak periods whilst in the thicket of my case, and, this provided me with hopefulness. I am truly blessed to have found her and realise how unfortunate it would have been for me not to have her as my attorney, or worse, had she been opposing counsel!
As far as I am concerned, she shall remain my counsellor for as long as she practises law.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer. I've known Jennifer Gardner on a professional level for about five or six years now. We've worked together on various civil matters. In addition to that I have referred several clients to her in criminal matters. I can unequivocally state that Jennifer is a dedicated, exceedingly intelligent and passionate attorney who represents her clients with zealousness and focused ferocity. The matters on which we worked together resolved favorably for our clients in great part due to Jennifer's uncanny ability to drive the case forward. I look forward to working with Jennifer Gardner again, hopefully sooner than later!
