What Our Clients Say

“When my divorce proceedings first started, I was emotional, confused, and in all honesty, scared.  My divorce was messy.  Lies were told about me, and I was dealing with an ex that had only his best interests in mind, rather than our child’s’.  I felt as though Jennifer cared as much about what was right for my daughter as I did, and she fought extremely hard for that. Not only did Jennifer coach me in how to handle things legally and represent me to get the outcome I deserved, but she listened and helped me gain the confidence I needed to stand up for myself.   I came out of this process a different, stronger person, and I have Jennifer to thank for that.”

“There are no words to express how thankful I am to have found such an unbelievable law firm. My divorce case was long and stressful, but you made the entire experience so much easier for me to handle. The firm was knowledgeable and extremely professional. I want to thank several people such as Mal Ryan, Mary, Ann, Heidi, and  especially I want to thank Jennifer Liddell.  She took over my challenging case in midst of it, and drove it to the conclusion. Jennifer, thank you for being such a great lawyer! I really appreciate you and your team. I know my case was stressful, yet you were patient and continued to look out for my best interest. It was truly comforting knowing that you were working so hard to help me make the best of a very difficult situation. Anytime I had a question, Jennifer would respond within minutes. I was very impressed by that! Your calm approach, confidence and professionalism are truly appreciated. You made me feel like I wasn’t alone during this extremely long process, and at the end, all your knowledge and experience paid out as you knew it would.

I will recommend Jennifer to anyone out there that needs an attorney who knows how to handle challenging personalities. I was extremely impressed with Jennifer’s work ethic. I am happy with the outcome of this long process and it’s all because of the hard work, knowledge, and professionalism of the entire team at RFC!”
