My contact with Jennifer has spanned nearly 4 years, and during this time she assisted me in obtaining Parenting Consent Orders, a Property Settlement and a Child Support Agreement, as well as in my application for divorce. I always found her to be highly professional and approachable, easy to communicate with, reliable, fair and compassionate in her understanding of the complex issues I was dealing with.

Jennifer’s personal warmth and humane values were always reflected in both, her approach to work, and also with the emotional support she provided me, in what were at times a very distressing situation. I was always very pleased to have Jennifer “on my side” as my lawyer. I truly valued the relationship we developed, and found the experience of working with her to be a very positive one. I would highly recommend Jennifer and her practice to anyone requiring assistance in any family law matters
