About Jennifer

Learn Jennifer’s areas of practice.

Thanks for your inquiry into my page. I have been a family law attorney since 2006, spending the first nine years of my career in coastal North Carolina. In October of 2014, I married my husband (a native Portlander) and headed off with our family to the Pacific Northwest. I enjoy most weekends exploring all that Portland and the greater surrounding area has to offer. We reside in the Coumbia Gorge Scenic Area, so hikes and trips to a river or waterfall are a frequent occurrence.

 

I have dedicated the entirety of my career to helping clients and their families through what is arguably the most unenviable, emotionally and financially straining time of their lives. I pride myself in investing the time to get to know my clients, and in meeting their individual needs both inside and outside the courtroom. I am tough, efficient, and available when you need me.

 

I have experience in virtually every aspect of family law, from complex child custody and support issues, to property division and post-divorce/modification issues. I am excited to be a part of Eaton Family Law & Mediation, and thank you for taking the time to visit my page. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require additional information or assistance with a specific issue.

A lawyer who listens
I was very pleased with Jennifer’s professionalism and willingness to listen to what I had to say. I hired Jennifer to help me as my ex was unwilling to disclose what was happening to funds set aside specifically for my children. Unlike the lawyer I hired for my divorce, or other subsequent lawyers who disbelieved what I had to say about what was happening, or the irrational actions of my ex, Jennifer listened and was able to work with me to resolve the situation. I felt confident in her advise and she was always willing to explain things in a manner I was able to understand. More importantly, she listened when I disagreed and didn’t try to pressure my decisions (giving me time to work through my emotional reluctance, at times, so that I could make rational decisions regarding the case and which moved the case forward). I would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone in need of a lawyer with regards to family law.

THE BEST!
Jennifer was a great attorney for me through my divorce. Jennifer was on top of everything and her communication was outstanding. She is very knowledgeable of family law and she will work hard for you without wasting your time and money. Jennifer is a very kind and compassionate person she will work hard for you. I highly recommend Jennifer.

Excellent experience
Jennifer was absolutely phenomenal with my case. I was/am dealing with a very narcissistic ex husband and Jennifer was calm, cool and collected while dealing with him and my custody case. She was very to the point with him and extremely helpful to me. She understood that I am a single mother with a single income, she was conscious of the fact that I didn’t have an endless amount of money. Jennifer would tell me all of the options that there were and we would discuss which route was best and she cared about my input. She cared about me and my daughter! I would call or email Jennifer with questions or concerns and I thought I was bothering her so I apologized (all the time!) and she reassured me that I am not a bother. I would recommend Jennifer to anyone dealing with divorce/custody issues. I will hire Jennifer in the future if I need further assistance. I just can’t say enough good things about Jennifer!

Won my Case. Saved my Career.
Ms. Sackett assisted me in successfully resolving a complex, sensitive divorce and custody case. The sensitivity was especially exacerbated by the nature of my profession. Having worked with multiple other attorneys on the matter, I found Ms. Sackett’s professionalism, knowledge of the law and genuine care for me as her client to be truly unparalleled. Ms. Sackett’s experience, intelligence and the ability to effectively communicate complex information in extremely stressful circumstances is remarkable. Ms. Sackett’s superior research and analytical skills, coupled with her ability to formulate and implement a clear and effective strategy proved instrumental to the successful conclusion of my case. Ms. Sackett’s responsiveness and timeliness positively distinguishes her from other attorneys I employed on the matter. It is my absolute privilege to not only recommend Ms. Sackett as an attorney, but also, more importantly, as a person.

Child Custody
Jennifer is an amazing lawyer. She was very knowledgeable in child custody and if she wasn't 100% with an answer she would find it. She would work all hours of the day (even 8months pregnant), just to make sure things were in place. When Jennifer and met, I had 2 days before it was court time for an emergency custody change. Thanks to Jennifer's witt it was all dropped. As the case proceeded she was very straight up with me. Long story long, I'm a 36 year old male and now have full custody of my son!

Would recommend
Jennifer helped me through a difficult divorce. She is very knowledgeable and a very good communicator of the law and the various options a client may have. I still reach out to her today across the Country because I value her opinion.

Awesome experience from an excellent attorney!!
Jennifer was my attorney in a very complicated family law case in the medical field with possible significant emotional and financial downsides to me personally. She quickly grasped the complexities of my case and effectively communicated the potential up and downsides of my case while making me feel at ease with the process moving forward. Her intuitive insight and empathy into the emotional and legal aspects of my case cannot be underscored. I want to move to Oregon just to have her continue to represent me in additional legal matters. I have never encountered another attorney I felt more comfortable with all the while knowing she was at the top of her field as it relates to family law. In addition to her excellent legal skills, she is a great person and anyone would be fortunate to be represented by her. I would recommend her without reservation to anyone in need of assistance in the area of family law, regardless of the legal and emotional complexities involved. She is amazing!

Caring Professional
Jen was my attorney on a very complex case over several years. She was the best I could have ever hoped for. We went through an extreme case and never lost a hearing. She spent extra time at home to make sure she was always prepared. Very personal, caring, professional, dependable, and always over prepared. I highly recommend her to anyone!!!

Wonderful attorney
Jen is professional, caring and thorough. She assisted my husband and I with custody arrangements for our nephew who moved in with us. She was knowledgeable and was able to address all of our questions and concerns. Jen is reliable and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone seeking legal counsel.
