Jennifer and her firm have my absolut trust and I couldn't ask for a better lawyer firm. Highly recommend!!!
The Grady Firm, Jennifer Grady and her staff are very professional and helpful. I am residing in Germany and we have conference calls to address necessary issues concerning my Immigration. I could not ask for a better lawyer / firm to take care of my needs and concerns. Jennifer's and Anthony's knowledge on Immigration is limitless - I am in the best hands possible. They take care of all the forms and inquiries for me. I don't have to worry about that at all and they give me the best advice in the dos and donts. I truly and honestly can recommend the Grady Firm to everybody who seeks a professional service but also the empathy for difficult situations.

Great service and work
This firm has a great customer service, very knowledgeable staff (which I worked with Jennifer) and fast in getting back to you. I was working with another lawyer for my company everyday legal matters but they weren't so quick to get back to me so I had to switch to The Grady Firm which they did really help me with all my hiring processing in an organize way and timely manner. I highly recommend them.

Go with Jennifer
I've had the pleasure of watching Jennifer grow in her career, from fresh law school graduate, to diligent associate, to successful attorney and businesswoman. She has a sharp, analytical mind and stays on top of the flood of new laws that affect businesses. She knows the right questions to ask and how to spot the issues a business needs to address. I've consulted with Jennifer in the past and was very pleased with her reasoning and analysis. I'd feel very comfortable making a referral to Jennifer.

She knows her stuff!
Ms, Grady was recommended to me by a friend who I also happens to be a lawyer- so you can't get a better recommendation than that! She is detailed, does her research, and is very well spoken. Highly recommend Ms. Grady for any employer disputes.

Great help with a complex situation
Jennifer was highly recommended by a close friend, so I trusted her right off the bat. She represented me during a deposition for which I was a witness and she did an outstanding job at reviewing the case, the documents I was turning in and the entire situation. I highly recommend her services and I will certainly use her firm again when the need comes.

Everyone should use Jennifer for their legal work. She was wonderful in every way when I needed important legal docs prepared for my business. I felt I was protected by the best in the business.

Practical info on employment law
Well, like the title says I needed information that only a person with experience could provide. Last year I met attorney Jennifer Grady. My situation at hand required me to be prepared to face a variety of potential scenarios after hiring employees. While consulting her, she provided an answer to all of my questions each followed by at least one example of an actual event similar or same as to my question content. This is where a client gets to have an idea of what a pitfall not covered by a lesser experienced attorney could cost him in time and money. The instructions given to me for a variety of tasks were easy to grasp and therefore easy to follow. I will not hesitate to recommend her services to a potential client because when you seek the advise of an attorney, chances are you can't afford to experiment. Leon

Trusted attorney
I'll keep it short, Jennifer knows the in's and out's of employment law and has helped me structure my business to minimize liability. Over the years it's been a positive experience for me having Jennifer to call when laws change and issues come up. Issues will come up, we live in America .. took me a while to learn that lesson. In a world of business attorneys who will rack up hour after hour and send meaningless letter after letter, Jen stands out to me as an honest operator. I'm a happy client.
