Practicing family law gives Austin divorce attorney Jillian French the opportunity to help people through a very difficult time. She is able to help people do what they can’t do themselves.
“The average person does not understand the legal jargon related to family law, no matter how much research they do on Google,” Ms. French said. “They need someone who can go to bat for what is important to them. Family law deals with someone’s entire life and should be treated with the upmost importance.”
Ms. French prides herself on being a good listener and problem solver. She will do whatever she can to help her clients reach their goals, but she makes sure they are realistic about what to expect during their case.
“I’m very honest with my clients about the likelihood of winning a certain argument,” she said. “I think it is important to manage client expectations.”
By communicating clearly and openly with her clients, Ms. French ensures she is prepared to provide the best representation possible.
“I tell my potential clients that I am someone who will listen to their concerns and look for any argument I can, that is allowed by the current statutory and case law, to fight for their interests,” she said. “I also listen to any of their concerns about budget and/or going to court to determine how to best handle their case.”
