About Jeanne

Learn Jeanne’s areas of practice.

1
Practice area

I believe a defense attorney is more capable of defending clients when that attorney has also been a prosecutor.  I have over 8 years of experience as a prosecutor, both while in the Army and while working for the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.  My experience as a prosecutor has helped me to look at both sides of the case and anticipate the problems that may arise on either side to help me defend my clients. Having tried these cases as a prosecutor, I already know what the prosecutors have been trained to do and this helps me to attack their cases more effectively.

I have always been a very thorough and detailed oriented individual. This means that I look under every stone to overturn any evidence that I can find to assist me in defending my clients.  My tenacity in locating this evidence will often result in turning the impossible and indefensible case into a very triable and strong case for my clients.  If there is a way to get my clients out of the mess that they find themselves in, I will find it.

I also work for the Law Offices of Taylor & Taylor that exclusively defends those accused of driving under the influence.  Every month we receive training in our field and I constantly stay abreast of the latest DUI case law and legislation.  Visit our website to learn more about me and our firm:

Dedicated to Veterans
I want to say that working with Jeanne Normandeau was incredible! She kept me up to date throughout my whole case and always answered my messages promptly. We both have a military background and she spoke to me in a way that was both comforting and reassuring. Thank you Jeanne for your professionalism and a bigger thank you for showing that you care so deeply about us veterans.

The GOAT!
All I can say is this law firm and it's associates are amazing! More specifically to Jeanne Normandeau. Based on the complexity of my case and how difficult it was going to be to get me diversion. She was able to create a extremely compelling case that worked! Without being specific to the case, trust me when I tell you she worked a miracle here! I am so thankful and appreciative of her I can't explain. Without her commitment to doing the BEST she could for me, I would or could have been just another statistic in a long line of court cases. I felt heard and cared about through the entire process and that means everything. Thank you Jeanne and the Law Offices of Taylor & Taylor! If you want the BEST - Here they are!!!!

Great attorney and law firm!
Jeanne is top notch! She communicated with me prior to and following each court proceeding. Realistic possibilities were discussed throughout the process. She was able to get my case dismissed, saving me a lot of heartache and preserving my future opportunities. Jeanne even followed up to have an error on the minute order corrected. I highly recommend Jeanne and the law firm of Taylor and Taylor.

AMAZING
I have to hands down say my Five star rating sits with Jeanne Normandeau - She navigated my case and got me a better out come that was originally being offered. She advised me in everything I needed to take care of after and really thought the whole picture out with me, gave me honest feed back and told me the realistic directions how the case could go with the “if they - ”. I live out of county and 7 hours away so she made this painless and smooth. Mind you I have priors and this case has been lingering and the DA has not allowed me to plea out, She made it possible.

Recommended with highest regard
There are just too many great qualities about Jeanne and the Law Offices of Taylor & Taylor. My case had been ongoing for awhile but all throughout the whole journey Jeanne was giving an astounding amount of effort and dedication. You could see and tell that Jeanne was there doing everything she could in her power for the best possible outcome. I truly can't thank you her enough. I would highly recommend Jeanne and the Law Offices of Taylor & Taylor. She is the best around and makes you feel like family. I am truly grateful to have met and had Jeanne on my side, thank you!

Excellent Attorney
Jeanne is an incredible attorney. My case was very tricky and I was looking at losing my license for a year. Thanks to Jeanne's professionalism and dedication to my case she won my d.m.v. hearing. She went to about five d.m.v. hearings for me to continue looking for a way for me to win my case and keep driving. Jeanne also got me into military diversion and guided me through the whole way, and being there for every single one of my hearings. Now my record is clean thanks to her. I can not say enough good things about Jeanne she is an amazing attorney, and if I get in trouble again I am calling her.

Jeanne Normandeau.....Five Star Review
I have nothing but Five Star praise for Jeanne Normandeau. She defended me in what initially appeared to be an indefensible DUI situation. Her meticulous attention to detail resulted in a blood alcohol level being determined as inadmissible in court. Ultimately, a Wet Reckless Plea was offered which I gladly accepted. I highly recommend Ms. Normandeau!

Highly Recommend!!
Jeanne Normandeau is an amazing attorney. Last year, when I got my DUI I called the The Law office of Taylor & Taylor and got assigned to Jeanne. She did a great job walking me through all the steps and answered any questions I had. She kept in touch with me through every hearing and truly cared. After a whole a year she was able to get my DUI dropped to a wet reckless and I couldn’t be more grateful. if you are thinking about hiring Jeanne, DO IT!

Knowledge and Compassionate Lawyer
I highly recommend The Law Offices of Taylor & Taylor. I specifically give this five star rating to Jeanne Normandeau. My DUI case has been on going for over a year and Jeanne guided me every step of the way. Today, my case was dismissed on a motion to suppress the evidence. Needless to say, without her knowledge, none of this would have been possible. I put my faith in Jeanne and even though she did not always paint a pretty picture, she got the job done. If you are ever in need of legal representation for a DUI, contact The Law Offices of Taylor & Taylor and request Jeanne Normandeau.

Highly recommended!
I highly recommend the Law Offices of Taylor & Taylor as legal representation for any DUI-related charges. Exceptionally well-versed in the law and motivated to get me the best plea bargain possible, my attorney Jeanne Normandeau was able to get the DUI charge dismissed from my record and reduced it to the lesser “wet reckless driving” charge instead. As a result, I was able to avoid jail time and also did not have to make any appearances in court. I live out-of-state so this was very convenient for me. It was Ms. Normandeau’s knowledge of the facts of my case (not all of which were favorable) and her preparedness and willingness to take it to trial that convinced the prosecutor to dismiss the DUI charge and to plead down to the wet reckless driving charge. Throughout the entire time, Ms. Normandeau was in constant communication, patiently answered all my questions, very diligently represented me in court, and provided much on-going relief in an otherwise very stressful chapter of my life. I can’t speak highly enough of her as an attorney and as your best advocate in court.

Great lawyer!!
She was awesome and went to all my hearings for me while I was living in another state! I was also very happy with my result at the end of the case. She’s very friendly and had a very caring personality which brought me a ton of relief through the process. I have and would recommend hiring her as your next attorney.

Perfect Attourney
Jeanne was the perfect attourney. I had been charged with a DUI, in California, in one of the worst times of my life. My Mom was terminally ill and I was working out of state. Jeanne was very empathetic to my situation. It wasn’t just a case for her and I could tell she truly cared about me and helping me with the case. She handled everything while I was working outside of California and I didn’t not have to worry about missing important meetings or filing necessary paperwork . She was able to get intouch with an expert to testify for me for the dmv hearing. She won the hearing at the Dmv and the charges were set aside! In addition, the DA reduced the charges and I was not convicted of a DUI. I am truly thankful for her and all she did for me. She definitely saved me as I was facing some of the hardest times in life.
