Jacksonville divorce attorney Jeanna Field already was skilled in family law after working as a law clerk for a general practice attorney whose majority of cases were family law related. That made the transition a simple one.
The majority of her clients were men who felt the family courts would always be unfair to them.
“It is rewarding to help people who are going through a very difficult time to navigate the courts successfully and help make the transition more peaceful for the parties,” Ms. Field said, “and to help preserve the rights of fathers and husbands who have traditionally been told by the court that they had a lesser role in the raising of their children. Dads are important, too.”
Ms. Field loves the details and research involved in practicing family law. She wants to know all the details before court because surprises in the courtroom are generally always bad.
“If I can out-research opposing counsel, then I have a greater possibility of a positive outcome for my client,” she said.
Ms. Field always expects honesty and full disclosure from her clients, and in return, she provides honesty about the chances of accomplishing the client’s goals and expectations.
“The client has every right to expect us to work to move their case forward,” she said, “and they should expect to hear from me as soon as anything pertinent is needed or happens in the case.”
