Jean is a mother of four children and appreciates the emotional difficulties a person faces when dealing with a family law matter. Jean is very aware how difficult and stressful this period can be and that’s why Jean will always strive to achieve the best results possible for her clients, in a cost effective, professional and efficient manner.
