What Our Clients Say

Jennifer was very easy to work with on my divorce and explained everything as we went throughout the process. Everything went very smoothly and I would definitely use her again.


Jennifer was terrific. We did a review of our estate plan that needed updating. She answered questions we had with language that was clear to the layman. We are pleased with the changes she suggested and everything was presented very professionally. I feel very relieved that our estate is as we want it.


I knew [my friend] needed to get her will and personal requests in order. I knew Jennifer would be the perfect person to help in this very sensitive situation, and she was. Very thorough on all aspects of the will and directives, yet her soft spoken demeanor was what my friend needed.


Jennifer did a great job with my health care directive. She was easy to work with and listened to what I wanted.


Jennifer was very easy to work with and she did an excellent job at explaining the process. We now have Our Will, Power of Attorney and Health Care Directives written up and in our safe. We no longer have to worry about what will happen to our children if we happen to pass away before they are adults. We also were provided with print materials and an easy book to fill out, for loved ones to know our wishes. We would recommend Jennifer for your family estate needs. She is very personable and takes the time to listening to what you want.


We used Jennifer’s services for estate planning. She was great at explaining everything and efficient at preparing our documents. Highly recommend.


I used the law firm to write my will. I liked that there were questions that were asked until she knew exactly what I needed and wanted. I appreciated the final product given to me which included a folder of printed will and other information and a CD that contained all the information. I would definitely use Lewis Kannegieter Law, Ltd again if I needed more help.

Sally N.

Jennifer did a fantastic job on our will. She made it completely stress free and was done with ease! Would highly recommend! Thanks for everything!!


I felt like Jennifer honestly cared about my parenting-time case as much as I did. Her council was executed in a practical and professional manner. I cannot recommend her enough! I was not only well-represented, but cared-for in this very emotional case.


Words cannot express our gratitude for Jennifer and the work she did for our family. She initially helped us with our adoption case, and we were so pleased with her services we went back, and she helped us complete our estate planning. Jennifer was the great combination of professional and knowledgeable, but also personable and took the time to listen and understand our situation. She made complex and emotional decisions easy to understand and the piece of mind she has provided us is priceless. I would highly recommend her for your legal needs.


I was referred to Jennifer when my dad passed suddenly by a family member who used her estate planning services previously. I live thousands of miles away and could not travel to handle my dad’s affairs. When a Will could not be found, I quickly learned that I was way over my head in handling the probate process from afar. Jennifer made everything possible and was fantastic from the very beginning. She explained the process and was able to get things rolling immediately. The process was seamless. Jennifer genuinely cares about her clients and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for probate and estate services.

Trenton V.

Our son lives in Sweden so Jennifer had to communicate with Swedish lawyers in order to do our trusts. She was very knowledgeable, thorough, honest and supportive.


Our Will, Power of Attorney and Health Care Directives are finally in our safe thanks to Jennifer. Throughout the process we could tell that this was an area of expertise and she enjoyed talking us through the process and explaining when we had questions. Jennifer has print materials to read before you meet with her and her Total Estate Planning Organizer is a bonus where you can record other details. Our original documents are in special envelopes AND we have a CD as well as the Docubank soon to be activated. Jennifer made the process less overwhelming, understandable, with easy access to final documents. We also appreciate the Asset Summary worksheet. I have been recommending her to family and friends.


Jennifer was amazing. She was very professional but still very down to earth. We did everything remotely due to COVID 19. She answered all of my questions and made multiple changes in my estate plans even on weekends. Met in her 'parking lot' office on a Saturday to sign final paperwork.
