Helped me win my small claims appeal
I engaged Jeannette as my attorney after getting a judgement against me in small claims court, and realizing that I needed a lawyer to help me identify the correct legal approach to take, and to help me present my case in a succinct and well prepared manner. Jeannette, was a tremendous help. She identified the legal points that were irrelevant, and those that were key to winning my case. She took the facts of my case, email copies, and other supporting material that I sent her, and organized them into the order in which they should be reviewed in court in front of the judge. Jeanette provided a fixed rate contract for the case, and divided her support for the case into preparation, and in-court support, and gave me the option to either get her legal advice and assistance in the preparation only, or to also have her help me present my case in court. Her approach was fair and flexible. After getting Jeannette's help with the preparation, I decided that I needed her guiding hand in court. Jeannette's role in court was that she asked me questions, based on the material and legal strategy which she had assembled, which I answered in front of the judge, and she passed the judge the supporting material as exhibits. As a result of Jeannette's legal advice and in-court legal representation, the outcome of the case was that the court not only overturned the judgement that the small claims court had made against me, but the court also ruled in favor of my case that the defendant should pay me back the payments that I had previously made to the defendant, due to his contract breach. The court also awarded me court costs and attorneys fees. I strongly recommend Jeannette Darrow for anyone engaged in a small claims case, and she clearly has the experience and legal knowledge to support clients in other civil cases.

I HIGHLY recommend Jeannette Darrow!
Jeannette is the best! She got me through a very difficult time. She was compassionate, thorough and got things done quickly and effectively! I know I can call on her anytime....and I still do. She made me feel as though I was her only client, though I knew better. I highly recommend Jeannette to anyone who wants a smart, "hands on" lawyer.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED...Read This Review!!
During the first phone conversation I had with Jeannette I knew right away that I could trust her. For me this was incredibly important because it was her honesty that won me over and safely allowed me to accept her as my representative partner. I use the word "partner" because Jeannette created an environment where we worked together, toward a common goal, and I knew I could count on her. She of course led the way, and I always felt like we made progress together. It was such a nice change from a previous experience in another, somewhat similar situation. What facilitated this the best was the way she communicated. I always knew what was happening, and I always had a voice and a choice. I highly recommend Jeannette Darrow as an attorney. She demonstrated true professionalism by promptly working on my case, caring about my situation, and communicating with me on a regular basis. Through her hard work the case was resolved in my favor. If I ever get into a similar situation again, without hesitation, I know exactly who to call, Jeannette is known to be a real fighter! When there is an injustice done, she will fight hard for you. If you have a dispute with anyone, a landlord, contractor or business dispute, Jeannette will take the burden of dealing with it off your shoulders. Her compensation is reasonable and so much worth it. I have worked with her a few times and I have been satisfied every time.

Positive and Pragmatic
Jeannette helped me with resolving a small claims matter after the fact. I had paid the judgement, but the court did not have a record of the payment. This became an issue when I needed to get some financing. I found Jeannette online and emailed her and she was willing to help me out and was interested in my matter even though it was small. She was very up front about the fact that it could take awhile to get the record corrected. Throughout the process which lasted about 5 months she kept me informed and updated and took the time to check on my case. I wish I had met her sooner. She could have saved me a lot of time and headache. More to the point I probably could have prevailed in my small claims case, and avoided the situation I was in. My past experience with lawyers was if the amount is less than $3000 then just settle. Its nice to know that there are good lawyers out there that still care about the small cases. Jeannette is one of them.
