About This Firm

Stearns-Montgomery & Proctor Family Law Attorneys

Few events in life are as painful or stressful as a divorce, especially when there is a dispute over child custody or spousal support. Even the best situation may offer only partial solutions in terms of the best interests of children and parents. When confronted with the issues in a divorce, it is important to have a lawyer on your side who cares.

Aggressively Pursuing Client Goals

Many family law attorneys promote themselves as aggressive trial lawyers willing to fight until the bitter end. This approach can be strategically and fiscally irresponsible, as the vast majority of divorce and family law issues are resolved without a trial. You owe it to yourself to preserve your assets when possible, but be ready to fight when necessary. Our family law attorneys and divorce lawyers work closely with you to understand your unique needs, review your rights and options, consider creative alternatives, and prepare a sound legal strategy. Then we will fight aggressively to protect your interests and pursue your goals. Contact us to set up a consultation with a caring family law attorney.

I worked with Jennifer Brown at this Law Firm. She is warm, puts you at ease, and works hard for you. I was involved in a long, drawn out divorce and sought Jennifer's help almost two years in the process. I fully credit her with helping me finalize things, keep my children safe, and ultimately make sure the judges were made aware of the antics of my ex-husband.
Her paralegal, Lynn Congdon, works hard as well. Together she and Jennifer are a great team!

I hired the firm to help me file for a divorce. The communication was terrible, I had to call/text/email numerous times to get their attention. Response time - from several days to a week after asking a question - repeatedly. However, the invoices they sent me were always on time, they could find time for this! I definitely don't think I got good deal of service for the money I paid. I give them rating of "4" for quality because we won the case, but otherwise it was a frustrating experience.

I just want to say Thank you to Jennifer Johnson for her quick responses and professional ability to handle my situation. She was very thorough while working on my case in a very short time. I would recommend her to everyone. Thank you Jennifer!

We feel so blessed to have been represented by Jennifer. She made an otherwise overwhelming situation tolerable. Knowing that we have not only incredibly competent representation, but someone who cared about us and our case, made all the difference in the world. Being able to assure the kids that they would be here, with us, being cared for, was the best gift we could have received! Thank you seems such a cliche thing to say, when you have without a doubt changed our lives.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.

Anonymity

Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
