Ms.
Jennifer Wald is fiercely protective, hard working, loyal, brilliant and has a truly remarkable memory for everything relevant to the case. Jennifer is a warrior for the cause. I feel so fortunate to have had her help me and my children.

You won’t find a better attorney
I consulted with Jennifer during my divorce. She was just what I needed - first, I felt she really listened to me to help me figure out my real objectives. She helped me understand what the law meant in my situation. She helped me understand and think through issues about long term support and about custody, and helped me decide some pretty key issues. Jennifer supported me with advice during negotiations. She found problems in a draft agreement and guided me on how to fix it. She was super-responsive, and above all, she was always very realistic and honest with me. I felt really lucky to have her help during this tough time - not just for her skills but for how she helped me.

Outstanding Family Law Attorney
If you need to get a divorce, it is wise to work with a smart, creative, experienced, and knowledgeable attorney. I couldn't imagine a better divorce attorney than Jennifer. Jennifer quickly assessed my situation and worked to educate me and set realistic expectations on the process. She developed and executed a workable and well thought-out approach, despite a few challenges that came up along the way. Jennifer is easy to work with, ethical and fair. She was a phenomenal advocate and a strong, steady presence during at difficult time. I recommend her most highly.

Professional & Strategic
Jennifer was a consulting attorney, who assisted me through a long, difficult divorce. There were complicated issues, difficult parties to deal with and Jennifer was strategic about how to approach the case, consulted with me through each step, always considered what I needed and discussed all options. She set practical expectations, guided me through the court process, and ultimately, we worked toward a great final resolution. I highly recommend her!
