In all cases, Jessica brings to the table substantial litigation experience and business acumen. She is committed to service and efficiency and makes an investment in every client relationship. Jessica strives to make a positive difference in the lives of her clients and their children and achieve the best possible outcome on their behalf.

“Divorce is one of the most difficult periods in a person’s life. But it is a reality most of us will have to face in our own personal lives in one form or another. While the fact that you are divorcing may be out of your control, the divorce process itself and the ultimate resolution to your case should not be. I can help.”
