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.

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.

Jeanette is great to work with! Thorough. easy to communicate with, attentive & responsive. She listened while I explained the basics of my case, asked questions to gain a thorough understanding of the facts & presented a strong case to the court. I highly recommend her to everyone!

Sometime after initially meeting Jeannette, I serendipitous came across her again on my way away from my office. Her friendly personality, follow through skills (meaning she does what she says she's going to do), and indicatable knowledge of construction law, including contracts, compels me to endorse Jeannette.

13 years of law practice is what we refer to as experienced. Her knowledge of the law and procedure is excellent and evident from her pro bono contributions. Client reviews are stellar. READ THEM!. Do yourself a favor and call her for a consultation.
