She has taken divorce cases to hearing and/or trial with success. In fact, her first ever trial resulted in her client (a man) getting sole custody of his infant daughter.
As one of her clients recently wrote:
"Jeannine not only helped me with an initial divorce filing and parental agreement, but I have been working with her over the past 7 years to enforce them. She gives honest feedback, has common sense (a top priority for me), is great at getting others to negotiate, and is not afraid to confront. She has good intuition about when we needed to stop negotiating and begin holding people accountable. She is a great ally!"
