We represent clients in relinquishment, termination and adoption cases, both uncontested and contested. Jennifer can explain and assist you with the process. We believe that every child deserves a home that is loving, safe, and permanent.  Jennifer also assists child placement agencies with relinquishment, termination and adoption cases.

Premarital and Post-Marital Agreements
Jennifer represents clients with Premarital and Post-Marital agreements. These agreements can decrease future conflicts upon a divorce or legal separation or upon the death of one of the parties. We can assist you in discussing, negotiating, and drafting your Premarital or Post-Marital agreement.  Jennifer can also assist you in litigation and enforcement of a previously executed Premarital or Post-Marital agreement.

Protection Orders or Restraining Orders
We represents both victims and alleged perpetrators.  If you are an alleged perpetrator and facing criminal charges, Jennifer would be happy to provide you with referrals to criminal attorneys.  We bring compassion and experience to issues of domestic violence and abuse.

Dependency and Neglect/Special Respondents

Jennifer represents Special Respondents in Dependency and Neglect (D&N) cases.  A “Special Respondent” is a non-parent with whom the child or children have a significant relationship.  For example, a Special Respondent may be aunt, uncle, grandparent, close family friend, or a foster parent.

If you are a parent facing allegations of dependency and neglect, Jennifer would be happy to provide you with referrals to attorneys who handle representation for parents who have been named as Respondents in a D&N case.  We bring compassion and experience to issues of allegations of neglect and abuse.
