Excellent
I contacted Jill after my case had been handled by another attorney who clearly did not care about it. He didn't fight for me or help me out in any way. I paid dearly for choosing him to represent me first (he was highly recommended by friends but was terrible- Haddad was his last name). Anyway, I still had lots of legal loose ends after the first attorney badically told me he was done with my case, so rather than ask friends, I turned to the internet and found Jill. The difference between Jill Cremeans and Roland Haddad was like night and day. First- expense- her rates were on a sliding scale and so much more reasonable. Second- communication- she kept me updated on what was happening and made sure I understood everything. Jill actually listened to what I had to say and helped me get things worked out the way I needed. Third- attitude- Jill is very pleasant to work with, she is kind and had none of the egotistical-attorney-you're-wasting-my-precious-time b.s. the first attorney always exuded. I highly recommend hiring Jill, she's smart, hard working and will make you feel like someone is fighting for you.

Very good lawyer
Jill is very good at what she does. She is helpful, knowledgeable, and skilled. She is a great criminal defense attorney. She cares about helping those in need. She got my case dismissed.

Very Helpful and Patient
Jill represented me in a case and was very good during the entire process. Over the 6+ months that my case took to process I had many questions trying to be completely confident with my decision. She answered all of my questions very promptly even until the last second. Great Lawyer.

Jill Cremeans, an exceptional attorney
I had hired Jill Cremeans to represent me in two different Civil cases. I found Jill based on other reviews I read and noticed a pattern of satisfied clients. I know a sales pitch over actual knowledge and after our first conversation, I knew that Jill would be the one. Jill Promised that she will do whatever she can, but she exceeded my expectations. Even though the other side requested extra court hearing, jill remained silent and did not ask to be compensated for her work. Jill has a huge heart and cares about her clients. Jill always kept me informed. She listened to all my concerns and invested a real professional interest in keeping me calm and grounded to make sure I knew she was doing everything she can.

David v. Goliath
I was set up by a correctional officer that other officers spoke very highly of, which put the odds against me... but Mrs.Cremeans went against 6 officers at trial and exposed not only their lies, but there corrupt code of silence amongst correctional officers, when trying to cover up each others lies and shady ways. Which saved me from a 25 to life sentence. I'm very thankful for all her help.

When charged with a crime, nothing is great - but at least I had Jill on my side
I recently had a little scrape with the law but Jill was able to get me out of it. Guilt doesn't factor into Jill's representation of clients (I was totally guilty). Jill was great always returned my calls right away and she really knows her stuff (she answered a million of my stupid questions). Through my whole ordeal I really felt in good hands with Jill.

Jill Cremeans is an excellent attorney!
I was being harassed and stalked by a crazy woman who was making up lies about me, and trying to get me into trouble with the police. Ms. Cremeans was able expose the matter for what it was, and no charges were ever filed against me. She also was able to help me obtain a restraining order against the crazy woman.
