Jennifer Isensee has practiced law for 27 years in the Bay Area she brings a broad spectrum of insight and passion to helping people. Her genuine interest in the people she represents fuels her unique drive to improve the choices people make when faced with changing circumstances. Thus, her focus is in helping people take the long view for their future to their desired destination, that is past the scary points, and is well beyond the end of their legal case.
In her practice of law over the years Ms. Isensee has appeared in California State courts for family, probate, juvenile, civil, and criminal matters, the US bankruptcy and immigration courts. However, Ms. Isensee's primary interest has always been in the well-being of families involved in litigation and therefore she has increasingly focused her practice in family law. Even though she is an adept and experienced litigation attorney, her desire to provide more and better service for her clients led her to obtain her Mediation Certificate through the County of Santa Clara's outstanding Dispute Resolution Program offered by the Office of Human Relations. Ms. Isensee has found her mediation skills improved her advocacy and her settlements.
As a family law attorney Ms. Isensee helps people formalize a new structure for the family by guiding them through the court system and translating the legal-speak of the court into understandable language. It is her goal to help her client create the best family culture possible by presenting her client's values to the court in the language that the court understands. With her wealth of experience, Ms. Isensee is very comfortable advocating in court but she prefers to protect her clients from the litigation experience if possible. Her view is that it's good to win in court, but it's better to get what you want in settlement.
I highly recommend Jennifer Isensee for her very effective work handling divorces, and for her passionate work handling adoptions. She represented my friend in his divorce. I saw how she tried to reduce conflict to resolve various issues which kept being brought up by the other side, using her skills as a licensed mediator. When attempts to calmly resolve issues weren’t effective, I saw how aggressively and vigorously she fought for her client.
Jennifer is definitely the kind of attorney you want on your side. During her 25+ years of experience in family court, she certainly gained invaluable knowledge on how to achieve the best results for her clients.
From my many conversations with her, I can see how passionate and caring she is when it comes to adoptions. She has a special smile and gleam in her eyes when she speaks of her many success stories.
I recommend Jennifer for family legal matters.

Jennifer helped a friend with a custody situation where the mother had taken the child out of state. She was able to succeed even though another lawyer had done nothing but create a huge bill for my friend. After the situation was favorably resolved, my friend told me that Jennifer was able to get justice where the best that could have been expected was "the law." Jennifer is a rare breed of attorney, both extremely competent and compassionate.
