Our Clients Say it Best
Jennifer Skolnick changed my life! I met Jennifer when I was involved in a paternity dispute. She is kind, patient and understanding, and made everything so human and so real. She has an acute intelligence both in and outside the courtroom. In court, she is a warrior. She goes elbow to elbow in there and never backs down. It was such a relief to finally have someone on my side. She bent over backwards, and I owe everything to her. Without Jennifer, I may never have been able to meet my daughter. And thanks to Jennifer, we such have an amazing relationship today.
– Jamie from Los Angeles
I hired Jennifer Skolnick as my attorney for a divorce case in Los Angeles County, and she did a fantastic job! Los Angeles County is probably the worst location to get divorced nationwide, and you will need a skilled attorney to assist with the process. My goal was to settle out-of-court, and Jennifer succeeded. Jennifer writes beautifully, and I truly believe that it was her thoughtful and thorough work that helped me obtain a successful ruling, especially visitation with my daughter. She also never, ever over-billed on my case. I highly recommend Jennifer – she is an excellent Family Law attorney.
– Steve from Los Angeles
Jennifer is a competent and passionate lawyer. She stays up to date on developments in family law. On a personal level, she is very kind and giving of herself to her colleagues. She does a great job for her clients. She is well prepared and goes the extra mile for them. I speak from experience. At some point in our careers, lawyers who practice criminal or family law have to deal with litigants and opposing parties who are not happy with a court’s ruling. When that happens, they often blame opposing counsel. I recently was involved with such a litigant. Things got so bad that I had to apply for a civil harassment restraining order. Jennifer represented me at the hearing for the order. We had a high burden of proof to overcome, to wit, clear and convincing evidence. Jennifer was able to get my witnesses prepared in one hour. She was able to process large amounts of information in a short period of time. Because of Jennifer’s superb representation, I got my restraining order from a Judge who is known to be tough. Needless to say, now that I have my restraining order, I feel safer and I sleep better at night.
In a manner of speaking, Jennifer Skolnick is a lawyer’s lawyer.
