Jackie did a great job.
Jackie helped my son with a very difficult child custody case. She provided consistently practical advice and was a very strong advocate in court. I don't think we could have done better than choosing Jackie and would recommend her to others seeking help with family law cases.

Jackie was efficient, helpful, clear, and firm.
Jackie represented me exactly as I needed. She efficiently, clearly, firmly, and satisfactorily reconciled the law and my sense of fairness. No wasted time or effort. Jackie gave clear pros & cons and assessments of my legal situation and options. She firmly dealt with what appeared to me to be obnoxious nonsense. She listened to, heard, and took care of what I cared about. The settlement reached is fine with me.

Marital Settlement Agreement Advice Expertise
Jackie demonstrated strong negotiations skills and positioning that enable the parties to reach a Marital Settlement Agreement (MSA) without the Court system. Jackie was a consistent advocate of my rights and interest and provided the risk/benefits of each issue. Also, she communicated the issues very clearly, concisely and with a level of compassion that involve family matters.

Outstanding divorce attorney
I interviewed several divorce attorneys before hiring Jackie Martens to represent me in my divorce. Her legal strategy was superb, saved me a bundle of money and avoided headaches I would have otherwise incurred. Highly recommend her legal services.

Thank you, Jackie!
I was very fortunate to have found Jackie during the darkest, most horrible period of my life. She is compassionate and brilliant, and could not have been a better advocate. I felt truly cared for and listened to throughout the difficult process, which is now thankfully behind me. She was really there for me, and did everything in her power (which is considerable) to protect and fight for me. Highest possible recommendation.

Sonoma Attorney is great
Ms. Martens handled the dissolution of my long term marriage. As an attorney myself I was very happy with the professional and competent representation. I have recommended her often.
