Our family contacted this attorney for help. She was not knowledgable, for our case, in the areas that her website stated. She was unclear on answers to our questions - vague and elusive.
Posted by Lyn
She made a difficult time for our family much easier. She answered all our questions and told us what to expect from CPS and the courts. I would highly recommend her to any one needed a CPS lawyer.

After two other attorneys allowed the court to continue pushing out court dates without making decisions and forcing one sided concessions, Jen Ani entered my case.
My original attorney refused to fight for my daughters, allowing the mother to keep custody after 4 mental health professionals stated she was a danger to our daughters and should not maintain custody as well as a danger based on her alcoholism. The judge allowed her to maintain custody until a trial was ordered. A week prior to the trial, she killed our two year old baby daughter.
Jen Ani is not afraid to tell the court that there will not be any concessions with the family that allowed this to occur without recognizing dangers to my daughters or with the mother who was convicted of killing our child and almost killing our other daughter.
Jen will not play nice with the court because she has to deal with them on other cases. Jen will fight for your children as if they are her own.
Should you hire Jen Ani? Definitely. If you do not hire Jen Ani, your children may be at risk from other attorneys not caring about them.
Do it for your children.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
Is there a way to give 100 stars? Jennifer is one of the most gifted and passionate attorneys I have ever worked with. She is absolutely relentless when it comes to client advocacy, and is one of the few lawyers that is not afraid of trial and not afraid to stand up to fight for what is right. She is a real powerhouse and I would trust her with any client matter. She is truly a gem and stands out as one of the top lawyers in the country in her field.
