Based on a recommendation from a friend, I contacted Jenny Heard about incorporating my business. Jenny listened and made sure she understood my concerns and then explained that while my legal needs fell outside the bounds of her practice's specialty, she would gladly refer me to capable local attorneys. She also guided me to some online resources that would help me be a better informed business owner and client for whomever I decided to work with.
If this is how Jenny communicates with and supports someone who is not a client, I can only imagine the stellar care and support she gives to those who are.

Jeanette has a manner like a policeman (good cop, bad cop, etc...). Reports what she wants to, leaves out the context of the conversation (also like a policeman). Jeanette was appointed by a Family Court Judge, so she was not chosen by either myself or the plaintiff (wife), we were stuck with her. Now in public I was a monster (according to my wife) but in private not so much a monster. Jeanette seemed to hear only what she wanted to and did not look into matters as someone might when really interested in the truth.
I was required to pay for 33% of her fees based on the income of my wife and myself, and while that suited me just fine, I was marginally happy my wife had to pay more. In the end it will come out of both of our pockets, so no win there. I am still not divorced and probably will never be (so much for Government intervention in a family), I see my son every Sunday like clock work, even though according to Jeanette I am absolutely not suited for it. Perhaps she is needed, and maybe even usefull in some cases but absolutely not needed, or helpful in my case.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
