This is the second time I’ve posted about Jessica Chylik. The first time I had not yet hired her, which accounts for the lower rating. Now that I have, I can clearly give her the full ‘Five Stars.’ Nothing has changed from my first assessment except my initial positive intuitions have been confirmed.
I would like to again emphasize how Jessica has just the right ‘tone’: A tacit professionalism without a trace of the callous arrogance of many attorneys. I can only characterize this quality as a delicate empathy. She makes you feel at ease, and confident in her abilities without the client feeling at all manipulated, intimidated, or talked down to. You feel that right off the bat with her. She does not go ‘on parade,’ but somehow-almost subliminally-makes you know that she has the reserves of technical ability and the lawyer skills. That is no mean feat.
Trust is everything here, and that is what I felt. She is a sensitive and accurate listener, with a calm, nonplussed demeanor with a concise writing style. She got right on it, which astonished me. No anxious waiting periods. Her rates are very reasonable. I am low income. She took that into account.
Jessica handled an ugly Master-Tenant/sub-tenant situation expeditiously. You never got the feeling that she ‘disappeared’ on you. She returned my many E-mails promptly. She knew exactly what to do in the ‘nuts and bolts’ of the law. She has extraordinary patience. This conveys that she cares but in the right way. Just enough.
I had some very recent serious health problems at the time. I was in the hospital and could not keep my appointment with her. A friend failed to contact her for me. When I did contact her, she showed not a trace of annoyance. I learned a lot from her. The matter was resolved in my favor. I would hire her again and have recommended her to my friends. She should be supported. She deserves it.
