Jennie Clark, Esq. can only represent one party in this situation, not both. When a client calls the office she will need the names of the parties involved prior to obtaining any information in order to verify that she does not represent the opposing party. Thus, she will not be representing both the petitioner and the respondent. She zealously represents only her clients and the opposing party should not expect advice from her. First and foremost, she tries to obtain the best possible results for her client.
