Google Review By Paul Seiwald: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Deciding to get a Divorce was a tough thing. I had no idea what I needed to do. A friend recommended FJG&G to me. He knew I wanted a Fair, straight forward and Honest attorney. Which was what I got from the time I walked in. My team off, Brittaney, Gregg and Christine were open about the process and advised it was not going to be pleasant, but everything would be done right and complete. They were professional all the way through. They would not play down to the level of the other side and present several fair settlements which were turned down. Unfortunately it had to go to court. Brittaney prepared me and put a strong case together and in the end I could not be more pleased. The professionalism was far beyond my original expectations. I would recommend them for any law services they cover, if you want a firm that will make sure everything is cover, thoroughly.
Google Review By Morten Roising: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Going through our divorce process is one of the hardest and most emotional experiences I have ever had. After my x-spouse engaged a law firm I felt the need to do the same. I ended up with the most remarkable Dream Team of Brittaney D. McGinnis, Christine J. Hickey, and Gregg A. Greenstein. After getting to know them better I decided to have Brittaney run my case. Quite a gamble, as she was up against my x-spouse's very expensive lawyer with 20 years of experience, but my intuition proved absolutely right. As in the Pepsi/Coke war, the slogan "We Try harder" has never been more true. Brittaney was like a lioness during this whole process, really looking after me. Not only was she a remarkably professional, effective, and unbelievably responsive lawyer - she brought integrity, compassion, and understanding to the process and I always felt understood and listened to - and I was not an easy client. I know Brittaney & team were extremely busy with other cases, but it be evenings, nights, or mornings, Brittaney always found time to respond and guide me in a way my X-spouse never got to experience. I truly felt like I was their only client for the 8 months the process lasted! My X-spouse and I finally came to an agreement before going to court. I always felt Brittaney & team tried to support me in making this happen, while I had the clear sense my X-spouse's lawyer did anything she could to drag it out and ultimately bring it to court, while the invoices kept coming. Throughout the process my X-spouse started to feel the same about her representation, and I don't think there could be a more powerful compliment to my Dream Team, when she stated: "If I was ever to go through a divorce again, I would hire your Dream Team". Thank God I would not be on the receiving end if that was ever to happen again:-). As my X-spouse and I went through the final stages of our settlement, she asked me if we could just use my Dream Team, and eliminate her lawyer. I will always remain extremely grateful for the way these people stuck with me all the way through the divorce process.
