Client Testimonial

My husband passed away suddenly as a result of medical malpractice.  He was young and in excellent health.  My son and I were present when he died.  This was a horrible, shocking, numbing and confusing tragedy that the hospital and the doctors refused to explain or justify.  Two days later, I began to seek legal counsel for medical malpractice.

A very dear friend, who was also an attorney, made some inquiries on my behalf and his efforts placed me in the very capable hands of Jennifer.  Over the course of the next 15 months, I never regretted for an instant in selecting Jennifer to represent me.  She validated me, she validated my concerns.  She validated my husband whom she had never met.  She navigated this medical nightmare with skill and left no stone unturned.  Jennifer made herself readily available and accessible.  She would frequently meet with me in my home so I would be more at ease.  She was keenly in tune with the emotional distress and anguish I was experiencing.  The genuine compassion she displayed for me and my family was as vital to the successful completion of the case as was her legal expertise.  Jennifer allowed me to be very involved throughout the process which was of uptmost importance to me.  Jennifer negotiated an excellent settlement on my behalf saving me the expense and emotional distress of going to trial.
