What our clients say

  • “I have nothing but praise for Jane Binder and everyone at the Binder Law Office. They calmly and professionally guided me from the early days of panic and fear to the resolution of my divorce and the opportunity to build a new life. Jane's wise and caring manner meant so much to me during the most difficult challenge of my life. When I was weak, she was strong, smart and assertive.  There is no one I would rather have at my side. You and your staff are my ‘sheros’!”

  • “I was very pleased with Ms. Owen's representation not just because of the legal counsel she gave but the compassion she chose to show me and my family during this transition in our lives. She was an advocate and fought hard for us but more importantly she is a warm, kind-hearted, ethical person and made sure I did the right thing for me and my family even during the dark times.”

  • “I was very pleased with Jane’s representation of me. She listened to my concerns, responded quickly, and gave sound advice. She helped diminish my worries during a stressful time.”

  • “Jane’s staff is the best—they are as professional as you can get. They answer your questions and make you feel special and important. They are excellent.”

  • “One book ends and I begin another. I am grateful and thankful that Becky and her crew were with me in my latest chapter.”

  • “Jane was the consummate professional and was very detailed and thorough. She communicated well, and with her expertise and effort, I was very pleased with the outcome of my case. If you are looking for a family attorney, and want someone who understands the law to be on your side and to fight for you, I highly recommend you hire Jane Binder as your attorney.”

  • “Jane is an outstanding attorney. She was accessible via phone or email and always made time when I needed to speak to her urgently. She has insight and advised me seriously, candidly, and with a sense of humor that made talking with her easy. On behalf of my kids, thank you Jane!”

  • “Thanks to you and all of your wonderful staff. I will never forget the expertise and support that you gave at such a crucial time in my life. You have made all the difference in my being able to start over.”

  • “Jane’s professionalism, her knowledge of legal strategy, her team’s ability to translate a complex situation into an executable plan and, yes, her compassion, helped us successfully navigate through a challenging but necessary family transition. I would, without hesitation, refer family members and friends to her firm should they need legal services.”

  • "I am very happy with Becky Owen and Binder Law. Divorce isn't fun, but they made it less stressful because I saw that they were representing my interests while still being fair to everyone involved.”

  • “For me, Jane was the voice of reason in an unreasonable situation. Jane listens, is empathetic and truly cares about her clients. She worked for me to get the best outcome possible. After meeting with her the first time, I knew Jane was the best person to represent me.”
