Jeana is an extremely bright, articulate woman and a very capable lawyer. However, it has been my experience that she takes credit for work done by others and that, while she has expertise in some areas of the law, she claims expertise in areas in which she lacks sufficient experience to do so.

In my 49 + years of practice I have never come across an attorney who is so self promoting in the general practice with very little to back it up. When the Bankruptcy Court admonishes her for over charging and lack of skill and knowledge it is by a sample of her general lack of professionalism and skills not to even touch on her billing practices. She should remain un-rated for ever.
