Jean Marie Harner is an associate attorney at Abear Law Offices, where her practice is concentrated in the area of family law. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Behavioral Science from Drew University in Madison, NJ.  After working as a paralegal for one year in New York City, she continued her education at Rutgers-Newark Law School, where she earned her Juris Doctor degree. Thereafter, Jean Marie was a judicial law clerk in the Chancery Division of the Superior Court of New Jersey.

Jean Marie practiced law with a small general practice firm in New Jersey for over seven years.  Her practice focused on family law, residential real estate transactions and commercial litigation.  Upon moving to Illinois in 2005, Jean Marie became a stay-at-home mom.  In 2012, she returned to work, spending about a year and a half with a small Palos Heights family law firm.  She then switched to Moltzen Law Group, where she defended personal injury and property damage clients for over four years.

In April, 2019, Jean Marie returned to her real interest: family law.  She now writes briefs and litigates both pre- and post-decree family law matters, as well as parentage cases, in DuPage, Kane, Kendall and Will Counties.  Jean Marie is a member of the DuPage County Bar Association and the Kane County Bar Association.
