Custody issue
Jennifer was an excellent lawyer! I had been trying to get my ex to sign a parenting plan for months and he wouldn't do it because he wanted more custody then I wanted him to have. He has mental health issues and my daughter and I both were uncomfortable with him not having supervised visits. With Jennifer's help what I had been trying to do for 6 months on my own was finally wrapped up in 2 months. I got custody of my daughter and supervised visits for her with my ex. I highly recommend her!

Highly Recommended
I have been working with Jennifer Coombs for about 8 months. I can not ask for a better lawyer. Her experience and knowledge is priceless and she has guided me successfully throughout my case. During what was a horrible situation, I always felt comfortable and trusted her as my representation. I am very happy with the final results in my case. I highly recommend her.

Amazingly outstanding attorney!!
I have worked with this attorney through family law for about nearly 3 years when she worked for another law firm. I have to say, without Mrs.Coombs, i wouldnt have achieved the most worst battle of my life. She stays in contact, no matter what. She is exellent with explaining and helping her clients understand certain things they don't understand with NO confusion or being miss informed. She did and exellent job defending my rights and getting me the resources I've been trying to reach but wouldnt have been possible without her awesome help. She was very organised with my case and information built up. I definitely ABSOLUTELY recommend Jennifer Coombs , she gets the job done for sure and is very sweet and polite! 1 out of 5 stars she deserves a complete 5 for her great efforts and work she does. I enjoyed working with her and there is alot of trust there and i would have her as my attorney and be her client again if needed her services for the new law firm she is doing now. She will be the first and probably ONLY attorney i would consider!! You're awesome Jennifer, thanks for all your 5 star services!! Couldnt have won without you on my side!

Amazing Attorney
Ms. Coombs has overcome many challenging situations in my juvenile cases as well as a family situation. She has provided excellent information every time we consulted prior to and from court hearings. I have a very hard time trusting people because of some stuff in the past but Jennifer is someone I could always ask a question with no hesitation that she won’t listen or hear me out and give reasonable advice. I felt she was on my side the whole way and it was great to have someone on your side that you know you can talk to and consult with and she was amazing in court very knowledgable and is very confident and great at what she does. It was a pleasure being able to know her and if I could I would like her to represent me for any further legal matters(not saying itll happen, but for future reference) that may come across. I would highly recommend her and give her 10 stars

Yay Jennifer!!
I needed a post secondary education agreement for my daughter at WSU. Jennifer was able to quickly assess the dynamics of my situation and my need for a specific type of agreement for this case. Together, we were able to do what was best for my daughter and stop the random arbitrary legal action that I had been dealing with. Jennifer is the first attorney that I was happy to pay. Thank you Jennifer. It was a big bill and you earned it.

True Story
After going thru a brutal divorce where my ex did not want to settle on a 70/30 split in her favor offered by me, and two family law attorneys that took everything that they could get their hands on, leaving us both in debt, Jennifer Coombs was a joy to work with on a custody issue for my son. The most important attribute that she has in my opinion was that she listens. In the past my dealings with attorneys is that they do not care what you say, want to accomplish, or what your goal is. Jennifer does. If what you may want to accomplish is not possible, she will let you know and in lay mans terms will explain it to you in a way you can understand. She will and did go the extra mile in my custody case, worked her butt off before the hearing, and was dominate during that hearing. All with respect to the court, my ex and her attorney, and most important got custody of my son for me. This is coming from someone who does not hold that profession in high regard. Mostly based on my bad experience, but I'm not sure how some of them sleep at night. I have nothing but stellar things to say about the job that she did for me, and this world would be greatly enhanced if more were like her. A true and honest statement about the way she handled my case, knowing that you can't please everyone all the time, but my goodness what a job she did for me. Thank You to anyone who reads this, and Jennifer. I'm happy to have my son! Sincerely, Dino Conti

Great Attorney ! Knowledgeable!
Divorce is such a confusing and heart breaking experience, Jennifer handled my case with much knowledge and caring. Jennifer prepared all of my documents and answered so very many questions for me in a very easy to understand way. Lets face it , not everyone understands the legal jargon but not once was I made to feel that any question was too small or unimportant. I would totally work with her again if i needed any legal help in the future.

Would not recommend
Jennifer was my lawyer for a year and an half moving to 3 different law firms while my case was active, or so I thought it was. During this year and half period Jennifer hardly answered any of my questions and whenever I reached out I was also told she would contact me back when she never did, and I was still charged for trying to contact her. Later on I have found out that my case was dismissed for being inactive for 180 days and didn't found out for another 3 months after that. During this time period Jennifer continued to charge me as if my case was still open. It became very obvious to me that Jennifer had no desire to help me with my case and was only interested in getting whatever money she could from me. When I changed lawyers the firm Envision at first refused to give back any of the money I was charged then decided to give me only a portion of what they had charge me. Afterwards my new lawyer reached out to Jennifer to transfer my case. Jennifer then refused to had over my case for some unknown reason while having no right or legal authority to do so. Until my lawyer recited a law to her which she then transferred my case to her. This lawyer and the firm Envision she worked for at the time was a nightmare to deal with. She and her firm were far from Ethical or helpful in anyway. I strongly recommend anyone looking for a lawyer stay away from Jennifer and anyone associated with her.
