Jill is a fantastic attorney. Very professional and knowledgeable in her field. I have recommended her to several friends and colleagues all with great success. If she can't handle your case, she knows many attorneys in other counties for referrals. I highly recommend her.

Jill Barr is extremely knowledgeable. She knows what is important and what's irrelevant.
With the years of experience she has in family law, she also knows what to expect from the courts.
As such, she took much of the stress out of the experience and served as a much-needed barrier between the parties.
A strong advocate who fought for hard for my rights, she immediately got spousal support that paid for the retainer very quickly as well as a much greater settlement than I could have negotiated on my own. In that regard, she was well worth the money.
Last, but not least, she was easy to work with and made an extremely difficult experience much easier.

Ms. Barr is a fighter. Her style is cool, steady and methodical. She is always well prepared and leaves no stone unturned. I owe her a lot for without her I would not have my children.
Beth Appelsmith, Family Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
Jill Barr has been a family law colleague and friend for over 20 years. Recognized as a "Super Lawyer" by California Lawyer magazine, Ms. Barr is a supremely skilled litigator and negotiator who works tirelessly on behalf of her clients. An experienced and effective trial attorney, she is well respected by judges and other attorneys for her courtroom skills, high ethical standards, and thorough preparation. Although her practice focuses on litigation, Ms. Barr is also a calm and tenacious negotiator who appreciates the value of a good settlement to her clients. She doesnâ€™t drive a case to litigation if it is capable of being resolved outside of court, and she never puts her own ego before the interests of her clients. Ms. Barr sees her clients as people, not as cases, and she treats them with compassion and respect. She is particularly sensitive with respect to childrenâ€™s needs in family law matters, which makes her very effective in cases with custody issues.
