EXCELLENT SERVICE!
Jennifer Walters has been an Amazing Advocate and Attorney. I was referred to her by a close friend because I was specific in asking for an Attorney that can get things done.......and she delivered. Not only is Jennifer honest and hard working, but she has taken time away from her personal life to meet with her clients on Sundays. To my family and I, that was a huge relief to have all our questions answered by someone incredibly well educated and experienced in Law. Since then, her name has always come up when we are asked about a Great Attorney in her field of practice. MT

Jennifer Rules!!
I hired Jennifer to represent me with divorce from my crazy wife, and Jennifer was the most intelligent, professional, and kind of intimidating attorneys I've dealt with, I wouldn't want against me. Still very friendly and helpful, I'd hire her again without hesitation.

Child Custody
I hired Jennifer Walters to represent me at my child custody hearing in September of 2014. I had filed for a child custody modification due to a major change in circumstances. I was initially representing myself (ProPer), until circumstances got worse in my particular case after the first day of court. I turned to Walter & Moshrefi for help. Jennifer Walters was hired to represent me in my case (limited scope). Long story short, Ms. Walters provided me with superior representation! I now have Sole Legal and Physical Custody of my children. My children are safe, happy, healthy, and successful in their education since then. I couldn't thank Ms. Walters enough for all she has done for me and my children. I would absolutely recommend her to represent me again in any future cases. And I would recommend the offices of Walters & Moshrefi to anyone needing legal advice and or representation. Thank You Jennifer!!!

Mother In Law unexpectedly passed with no will or other document.
My wife, Renee and I cannot sing the praises of Jennifer and her team enough. My mother in law passed very unexpectedly on New Years eve 2013. Jennifer made time in her schedule to accomodate us to include my brother in law who was only in town for a very short period due to military service. She and her team were kind and thoughful in a very difficult and confusing time. With now WIll or Trust we were lost about how to handle assets. Jennifer took care of everything after making sure we understood and agreed with each step. She followed though with questions we had after the fact involving closing the estate with our tax professional. Jennifer and her team were truely a gift to us in a difficult time.

Special Needs Trust Fund/Probate
I had a previous attorney handling my trust and let me tell you, I just wished I had switched attorneys several years ago. Ms. Walters has been incredible! She is what every person wants and NEEDS in an attorney. Ms. Walters is very trustworthy. She is very professional, caring, truthful and most of all, she really cares about her clients rights and feelings. She is not like other attorneys that tell you what you want to hear, just to take your money. She really listens about what outcome YOU want from YOUR case. She will go above and beyond to make the best happen for her client. She is still handling my case and I am just amazed how hard she worked FOR ME. I have never met an attorney as sincere and open as Ms. Walters. I highly recommend her and her law firm for any of your legal needs. I have trust in attorneys again, Gracias to Ms. Walters!

The BEST Attorney!!!
Jennifer was my attorney for my child support case recently and I couldn't be happier with the decision I made about hiring her. She was very resourceful, dedicated, and professional when it came to questions that I needed answered regarding my case. On a couple of instances I emailed Jennifer and she responded in a timely manner and always let me know not to worry about anything and that she would take care of the matter at hand. If I had decided to go to court without any representation I honestly feel that things would of not went my way and that was due to the fact that Jennifer is extremely knowledgeable and knows what she is talking about when it comes to the law. I have worked with another attorney in the past and she does not even compare to the type of service that I received from Jennifer. I have actually referred a family member to her because she did such a great job handling my case and if I ever have to return to court I would not hesitate one second about hiring Jennifer again!! Thank you Jennifer for all of your help, I really appreciate it!!

Free Probate Consultation
Jennifer Walters advised us against doing probate and walked us through what steps we needed to do without an attorney's help, unlike the attorneys who attempt to further their business by selling their services. We would definitely look for her in the future.

Guardianship
Jennifer L Walters save my family. She gave me hope when I was at the edge of not having any. Going in crying my eyes out and she didn't make me feel uncomfortable. She made me feel safe and comfortable talking to her about my situation. So positive to work with and I feel so confident in myself working with her. She’s always letting me know what she’s doing, and if I feel comfortable. Her and her work is very professional. All the paper work was fast, that makes me so positive that she is a serious person about her job. I’m very happy to have her as my attorney representing me. There’s no doubt about not trusting her she is great! I’m going to adopt my niece and would want her as my attorney to represent me again. Jennifer L. Walters, I owe my life. Thank you

Compassionate and Talented
Jennifer came to my rescue when I lost a loved one and was named in a will. After receiving a stack of papers from the estate lawyers I had no idea what to do - or how to guide the rest of my family members through this seemingly unending process. Jennifer truly listened to my concerns, explained procedures so that even I could understand them and took the necessary steps to ensure a positive outcome for my family. She and her office were always there to answer our questions. When Jennifer said she was going to do something she did it - you never had to wonder "what was going on". I always felt she had our best interests in mind and would highly recommend her. To put in plainly, she is really smart and very talented and I was very happy she was on my side!

A True Advocate for Her Client
I never once doubted that Jennifer would be a strong advocate for me - and my children. She helped me navigate a very tricky, emotional child custody case and I always knew she was looking out for our best interests. Her tireless work on my case helped lead to a resolution that works best for my children and myself. She's quick to respond to questions and share developments. She's also personable and easy to approach - something very important as I navigated through the custody case and then the divorce. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing legal advice. Thank you, Jennifer!

Great experience / great attorney
Ms. Walters joined our battle to adopt a foster child the summer of 2011. She helped us to successfully navigate / obtain de facto parent status. Jennifer continued to be a strong advocate in representing our interests (and by extension - our foster child's) through several additional hearings, including the ".26" hearing that resulted favorably for us. We count ourselves very lucky to have had Ms. Walters in our 'corner'; and appreciate her sharp intellect, her caring demeanor with us; and her no-nonsense, tenacious approach in the courtroom. Thanks Jennifer!

You could not do better.
Jennifer Walters helped me save my brother. No one believed it was possible, but I was able to obtain Temporary Conservatorship and save my brother from living in a nursing home. I was completely confident in Jennifer. She was easy to talk to and communicate with by email. I would recommend Jennifer, especially if you want someone to help you "Do the Right Thing."

RESOURCEFUL
Jennifer L. Walters is a very professional and knowledgeable lawyer. She's superb, trustworthy, friendly, connected, and well oriented. She demonstrates great knowledge of the law and exceeded all of my expectations. I feel Jennifer is devoted, persistent, committed, and motivated to get the best for her clients. I confidently recommend Jennifer L. Walters and her firm without any hesitation to anyone. Jennifer handled my case and continues handling my child custody case with excellence. I could not be in better hands. Not Only with my child custody case but with any other matter I have law related, I will continue to have Walters & Moshrefi represent me as I know I am with helpful and reliable lawyers. Thank you Jennifer for your attentive service. I couldn't be more pleased.

Run, Run, Run
To begin, I had never hired an attorney so I didn't know what to expect. I was in need of a child custody attorney and when I first let with her she seemed pleasant. She was kind and seemed to be very professional. However, after I hired her she never once answered her calls and when I would go in to see her, her receptionist would go to the back and "see if she was in"; which she was apparently never once in when I attempted to see her. I never got a single question answered through phone, email, or in person. Then at our court date she wanted to speak with me about mediation, so she began to explain things then abruptly said you know what make an appointment with me so we can discuss mediation. At said appointment she literally word per word said what she had said previously; nothing new. I was billed for every little thing at an extremely expensive price for practically nothing. I truly feel she is in her field for the wrong reasons and as a previous client would not ever recommend her.

terrible
I hired because of these reviews. And I'm very disapointed. She is extremly hard to contact and does a very poor job fallowing up on paper work and filing necessary paper work on time. I do not recommend her to anyone for anything!
Posted by anonymous | June 20, 2014
Unfortunate Event
I was very comfortable with her at first. She seemed to have all of my best interests and the best interests of my children in mind. I did not receive the contact and support that I felt I needed from her as an attorney. My case was set out to be difficult from the beginning. I was asked to leave these details out from our response but later found out in mediation that it is very important to have all of these details in the file from the beginning. I do not feel that I received the interaction and direction that I deserved. I had called Ms. Walters several times for different subjects and always found it difficult to reach her and for her to return calls in a timely manner. I believe Ms. Walters backed out of my case because she was not equipped to deal with the difficulties of my situation. I wish that I had seen this site prior to hiring her. Considering that she only practices family law 35% of the time.

Run like the wind
Jennifer was hired to represent us in a guardianship matter pertaining to our grandson. We had already obtained temporary gaurdianship before hiring her. We feel strongly that we lost gaurdianship primarily because of Jennifer Walters. She did not follow-up on requests to obtain copies of documents pertinent to the gaurdianship in spite of multiple phone calls by us to remind her, she did not meet with us regularly to discuss updates/strategies/concerns, she did return phone calls in a timely manner,she did not lay out a strategy, she was unprepared in court, did a very poor cross examination and even intentionally provoked a verbal altercation between herself and a family member Furthermore, her explanation to us in the hallway outside of the courtroom lead us to believe that we were being pressured to accept a very insignificant "flip flop" on a temporary basis when in fact we were accepting a dismissal of the temporary gaurdianship which we had been granted earlier. It absolutely was not explained that way and we believe she just wanted the case to be over because her incompetence was showing through. Unprofessional, not trustworthy, mediocre skills, and arrogant and unapologetic are descriptors that I would use.
