Jessica R. Woll

About me

Jessica, joined her mother in the practice of family law in 1993, and now, as the managing partner of the firm, hasn’t looked back. A self-proclaimed “product of divorce,” Jessica understands personally how divorce affects children. Perhaps it is this experience as a child combined with her knowledge of crisis counseling that serves as the source for Jessica’s endless energy in shepherding her clients through the difficulties of divorce.

In addition to her intuition and perspective, Jessica brings to her practice a love and understanding for all cultures: a tangible asset in a metro area as diverse as Detroit. In addition to her law degree from Wayne State University, Jessica holds a degree from the University of Michigan in International Relations and Economic Development, and has lived abroad in many countries, including England, Japan, and Thailand (which included a stint in culinary school). Jessica’s skill as a litigator is unparalleled, evidenced by the numerous clients who retain her after seeing her in court. Her litigation expertise is a sincere comfort to all of her clients.

Additionally, Jessica is often retained by male clients who seek out her perspective not only because she is a successful attorney, but also because she is a woman and mother. As Jessica says, “you take care of your family, and we’ll take care of business.”
