  • I have found Jennifer to be a highly motivated, passionate and committed professional with her client's needs being the first and foremost importance. I have no hesitation in recommending Jennifer to anyone seeking representation

  • Jennifer was able to prevent a lengthy expensive case which was settled due to her negotiation skills and knowledge. The case was closed quickly and efficiently on the day out of court. I recommend Jennifer to those wishing a positive outcome.

  • Jennifer first worked with me several years ago. She is as energetic, passionate, strategic, clever, skilful, supportive and humorous (and I am sure a sense of humour is critical in family law) now as when I first worked with her. Over the years I have referred many friends and contacts to her for assistance with family law matters. All of those people continue to thank me for what they regard as a positive experience in what was otherwise a very challenging time for them. And that is why I will continue to refer people to Jennifer
