Clients Reviews

Having trying to extend a lease with my landlord for over 6 months I kept running into roadblocks with their Legal team. I found out quickly I did not speak “lawyer talk” and I needed someone fast to assist me. I found Jenna on Google

Jenna discussed and guided me with me the objectives I wanted in my new lease extension. Then she went to work. In just a few weeks Jenna had negotiated the lease with everyone of my objectives meet or exceeded.

The pricing was very well defined and reasonable.”


Jenna is very thorough, responsive, and communicates in a detailed and understandable way. Jenna is upfront and spells it out exactly the way it is. If it wasn’t for Jenna’s honest advice, I would have just “kicked the can down the road”. With Jenna’s advice, my commercial lease situation was resolved in a timely manner. I highly recommend Jenna!

Jenna was my first experience retaining an attorney and working with her was an absolute pleasure. The professionalism, promptness, and level of care with which she handled every step of my office lease negotiation ensured a smooth process and helped me proceed with confidence.

Jenna’s firm came recommended to help us past an uncooperative Condo Association at a property we were trying to renovate.
