Did not take my concerns seriously, respond to questions timely, address intentional complications and ethical lapses by opposing parties, persue discovery, or review existing documents to prepare my case, but her bills were always quite detailed and presented in duplicate.

First a disclosure that Ms. Ballou Jensen represented my former wife in what might have been an agreeable dissolution action. My (Pro se) offers to mediate were unheeded. Resolutions by collaborative council were rejected leading to unnecessary litigation, court time and significant attorney's fees. At the end of the day, it is my opinion that Ballou Jensen's "knowledge" and propensity for litigation caused both parties significant damage by diluting the marital estate.

Deanna is my attorney in a conflicted child custody case. She is very intuitive and balanced in her approach. She quickly grasped what was going on and identified the issues with our parenting agreement that were causing conflict. She easily came up with solutions that were simple and fair. She can see the big picture and has a genuine concern for the child involved. The documents she writes are very clear and concise. She went into the case with an awareness of the emotional cost of litigation and did her best to work out a settlement. Her office also compiled documentation for the custody evaluation in great detail. Deanna is a well rounded attorney and I would recommend her to anyone in a high conflict custody case.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer. We worked on a case together with very high conflict issues where Ms. Jensen represented the children. Her investigation was extremely detailed, and she worked very hard to make sure the children were protected and advocated for their best interests. In the end, she helped shorten the litigation time to a fraction of what it could have been. She is very professional and her years of experience are a great asset.
