Competent, concise, compassionate
Ms. Cochran's prompt response to my inquiry, and in-depth research of the subject was impressive, and invaluable. You can imagine the immensity of protocol and procedures involved when dealing with HUD subsidies managed by local housing providers. Jenny's immediate grasp of complexities and competent presentation of subject matter contributed significantly to the positive outcome of my petition. I was greatly relieved by the genuine personal interest she took under the difficult circumstances.

Excellent Attorney
My name is Maria and yes my husband and I did use Ms. Cochrane's services and we were highly pleased with her services. She was punctual and showed for all appointments with our bank. Below you will see a review bearing my name but was NOT written by me or my husband. He is a PSYCHO only trying to smear the reputation of my attorney. I will be contacting this site to have said review REMOVED IMMEDIATELY!!

Caring and knowledgeable lawyer
Jenny has been helping me with my divorce this year. She's really accurate, responsible and understanding. I wasn't exactly a perfect customer, changing my mind quite often on how I wanted things to be. Jenny was aware of the emotional aspect of divorce, never forcing anything, just giving the necessary information and support. I highly recommend Jenny with handling your legal matters. She's a pleasure to work with.

WHAT A BLESSING SHE IS !!!!
As a Divorced DAD, I felt so alone as I needed to change the Parenting Plan. All Attorney's just wanted money... and they would Help. Jenny Listen to me and hear my desire to be a part of my daughter's life. She allowed me to pay her a reduced retainer and to make payments. Months later, I now have a fair Parenting Plan ! I see my daugther and I am truly Loving every moment I have with her. Without Jenny saying "YES", I still would be a DAD trying to see his child. Jenny is Truly a Blessings. Always returned my calls, text, and e-mails within 24hrs! SHE IS AMAZING!!!!
