Jessica was helpful and informative throughout the entire process, very easy to communicate with, and helped relieve much of my anxiety about the case. We had a bench trial in Recorder’s Court and her expertise in the court room was tangible. I would highly recommend Jessica!


Words can never express how much I appreciate Jessica Towne. From the time she was recommended to me she did her very best to calm me down and make me feel safe. She discussed the process and listened to my concerns. She guided me all along the way never leaving me alone.


What can I say except THANK YOU for holding my hand through this. You helped us obtain documentation, you have been a great sounding board, and you helped me keep perspective through the process. The outcome makes our family very happy.
