What People Say

Jill Roth-Gutman is an accomplished, thorough and committed child advocate. In my long professional experience... [her] work stands out as excellent. She was always careful, thorough, asked good questions and truly cared about her clients. I am not a currently practicing psychologist; if I were I’d work with her in a heartbeat!

Dr. Pamela Kane MHID-Psychiatry Limited Private Practice in Psychology

To say that she cares is an understatement and her tireless work ethic always ensured that her clients were getting nothing but the best! Jill’s knowledge of the law is vast and her representation has always left her clients expectations met or exceeded.

Meghan C. M.S.

Jill is that rare person. She really cares! Children who find themselves in the nightmare that is "the system" have a real supporter.
