Jill turner

Family & municipal Law attorney serving the Kansas City area

My 10-year nursing background gives me a unique perspective on what it means to truly care for my clients.

Why Work with me?
1.
Receive one-on-one attention.

At my firm, you will never be passed through a receptionist or paralegal. I take the time to meet with each of my clients individually and stay in touch through regular phone calls, texts, and emails.

2.
Get cost-effective solutions.

Even if other attorneys have denied your case, you can turn to me. You’re already going through enough, and you deserve a break. I offer flexible payment plans that meet you where you are. 

3.
See the big picture.

If you think your life is over, stop and ask yourself, “What will this all look like in five years?” I will work to help you gain the clarity needed to make smart and strategic decisions for the future.

Alternatives to Court

Many of my clients are worried about the prospect of going to court, but there may be another way to resolve the matter at hand. Collaborative law is an extremely practical alternative to court that I often utilize with my divorce clients. 

In this method, each party hires his or her own attorney and comes to an agreement outside of the courtroom. Collaborative law is not only a civilized approach — it can be more economical and offer a variety of creative, personalized solutions.

professional Referrals

even the best attorneys cannot help every client

If your client is in need of services outside of your areas of practice, please do not hesitate to send them my way.

Know that when you refer someone to my firm, they’re in good hands.

A referral to one of your clients is the highest compliment I can receive, and I certainly will not let you down. Furthermore, I will be sure to return the favor if my clients are ever in need of local counsel or service within one of your areas of practice. 

let’s work together

The way an attorney handles your case impacts your family dynamics for years to come.

The Benefits of a Dignified Approach 

A dispute can take a toll on everyone involved, but as tempting as it is to resort to spite and revenge, you must maintain some perspective. Undergoing an all-out battle will not only add stress to the current situation  — it will put a strain on your relationships for years to come. Most would agree with me when I say that a small “victory” now is not worth your children’s resentment or your ability to adequately co-parent in the future. Yet, that’s exactly the sacrifice many couples make when they turn nasty during their case. 

More importantly, it’s not all about you and your spouse’s behavior. Your attorney plays a role, too. Hiring an aggressive litigator to defend you may seem like a good idea, but it can have its consequences. 

The Goal Is an Agreement, Not a Fight

With the exception of cases involving violence and other serious crimes, divorce and family disputes are not about who’s right and who’s wrong. Ethical and effective attorneys remind you to focus on the resolution.
