Here are are reviews that The Kern Law Firm, PLLC, has received from clients, colleagues, and others with personal experience working with us:

"Jennifer was an absolute Godsend. Professional, courteous, responsive, knowledgeable. Forget anything you ever knew about attorneys, she is cut from a different cloth. I can barely tell the story of our adoption and how she played such an integral part without crying, she played the most amazing part of that story. If you are thinking about adopting, use Jennifer. Both my husband and I and my brother-in-law and his family used her. I can't recommend her to enough people. And if you have any hesitations or questions, feel free to Google my name and call me personally."

"Jennifer Kern is an excellent attorney! My wife an I connected with Jennifer during the adoption of our beautiful baby girl. We couldn't be happier with her services. When our baby girl was ready to be discharged on a Sunday afternoon and there were legal concerns to be dealt with before we could take her home, Jennifer dropped everything and rushed from a personal outing to the hospital to help us out. I completely credit her and all of her efforts for a smooth transition that day and I cannot thank her enough. That was huge! In addition, Jennifer is very professional, reliable and extremely accessible, but she's also very personable and I believe she she truly cares about her clients and what's going on in their lives. We always felt like she had our best interest in mind and she seems to work tirelessly on our case with regular updates via phone calls and emails that often come in very late at night while everyone else was sleeping. I cannot recommend her enough. She truly made our lives easier at a time when it could have been very difficult."

"Jennifer is awesome. As the first attorney we ever hired, Jennifer set the bar incredibly high for all the lawyers we've hired since we moved out of the state. She knows her craft. She maintained her professionalism, high ethics, and moral character even in the face of other attorneys with much lower standards. She worked hard for us. Che celebrated with us. She cried with us. She prayed with us. She continues to be part of our story, our friend, even after her "work" was done. We would giver her six stars if we could. Don't look any further, Jennifer is the attorney you need."
