    Her license was suspended 7-1-2008/She will lie to a judge and screw anyone for her benefit.

    To say that Jill is the devil is an understatement. She is vindictive, evil and will commit perjury in court to a judge at any time if she feels like it. She is attempting to sue two of my companies for trademark infringement. The funny thing is that this bitch actually added and filed on 4 of my other companies that not only are spelled completely different, but are in different industries all together. She then splattered anything she can all over the internet in the attempt to discredit me and my companies. She has now crossed the line by actually defaming me and my companies by posting lies and misrepresenting what she really has. She is one of the most disgusting people I have had to deal with in my life. She will not win or even get the best of me because she has no idea who she is dealing with. She has shown her weaknesses through her idiotic decisions as she make mentally unstable emotional decisions. In my opinion, She is an idiot. check this out: http://www.JillPietrini.com
