Client Testimonials


“Nothing’s ever easy, ever, ever, ever . . . except for collaborative divorce. My biggest fear prior to consulting with you was that we would fight about things. That you lawyers would make things complicated and make us fight with each other . . . . My lawyers really kept me in the know and informed, which I really appreciated.”
Stephanie Williams, March 2015

“My biggest fear before going into the collaborative divorce process was that we wouldn’t be able to agree to anything. I was surprised that we were able to listen to each other as well as we did. This was because the professionals were so active in helping us hear each other’s points of view. It certainly sounds different when someone else says it, even when it’s the same thing your husband just said.[expand title=”CONTINUE READING…”]It was a surprise that I got what I wanted and he got what he wanted. But I think what I wanted changed during the process . . . . It was not the battle I expected; it was not hostile. He heard me out, and I heard him out. I was able to say what I needed to say about how I really felt and he listened to me. [H]e did the same, saying what he needed to say, and I listened to him. [/expand]

Jessica Dixon, January 2015

“I liked the collaborative process because it gave my ex and I an opportunity to resolve our most personal and private matters ourselves, rather than having a judge decide them. My attorneys, Joryn Jenkins and Lori Skipper, made sure that I was knowledgeable of the collaborative process and how it worked. I strongly recommend choosing the collaborative practice method if you are going through a divorce. Many thanks to Joryn Jenkins.”
Tamika Nichols, November 2014

“We had to do something so very hard and emotionally very upsetting. But we knew we had to do a divorce because of our situation. We want you and everyone on the team to know that your kindness and each one’s expertise will forever be appreciated and remembered. You have all made this difficult journey bearable and possible! Collaborative divorce is a loving way that makes such a task easier, and takes the stress out of it. So to all of you angels we send our heartfelt thanks and love for all you have done for us.”
DeeDee Maratea, October 2014

“I couldn’t have been happier with my collaborative divorce experience. . . . The team was excellent and really seemed to want what was best for me and my family. My team was like my family, working for both of us to resolve our conflicts, helping us to say the things we were afraid to say, that I never thought I would ever be able to say to my husband, and to know that it would be alright, that the team would make sure that it was alright. They made it so much easier to work things out!”
Zuly Rosa, January 2015 (William’s ex-wife)

“Joryn was simply amazing. Her supporting, consistent, honest, and most importantly – productive – approach was exactly what I needed to get through the process. A court trial was imminent if we did not have a successful mediation (the third one!), and no other attorney was able to focus the entire team like Joryn. Her experience, ‘bed-side manner,’ and direction was simply invaluable.”
Danielle, January 2016

“Joryn personally understands the negative impact that divorce can have on each member of the family. While it is my personal conviction that divorce be a last resort, I fully embrace the collaborative process and I highly recommend Joryn Jenkins to help families navigate through what often is a highly emotional and painful time.”
Miriam Johnson, November 2014
