Divorce attorney who really gets it
Jolee was always there to answer my questions along the way. Quite knowledgeable, she put me at ease during times of stress, which was often! She provided unique perspectives I would never have known was out there, and I’m so grateful for all her help and hard work. You definitely want Jolee on your side!

Excellent divorce attorney
Jolee represented me throughout my divorce and provided excellent counseling regarding the financial settlement of a home owned jointly and the custody of two children.

Exceptional Lawyer
It was such a pleasure working with Jolee. In addition to being extremely knowledgeable, professional, and timely, she is also warm and took the time to answer my questions. I am very grateful for her services and I would strongly recommend her to my own family and friends.

Prenup Help Is Excellent
I needed a prenup and quick! Just to be safe! Jolee and her team were absolutely outstanding. Walked me through the entire process, helped out point the sticky points and how to work through them and in the end I received a prenup we all agreed to. Just outstanding and highly recommended.

Thanks for Being Great
Jolee is the best family lawyer I’ve ever had, and I’ve had a few. Her best attribute is that she listens, and that tells me she cares. This is also evident in how she fights for the things that are important to me. Jolee is fair and honest, which I greatly appreciate. She is an incredible communicator and was there for me at all stages of the process. I will be sticking with Jolee from now on!

Incredible
Jolee, made me feel like I could actually breathe and relax for the first time! I had no doubt she was going to put her everything into my case and that’s exactly what she did. She always got back to my messages and phone calls in a very timely manner and never made me feel like an inconvience or like my questions were silly. I will always go to Jolee for help!

Honest and Attentive
Attorney Vacchi is honest and attentive and I would recommend her to anyone that needs an attorney. My case was contentious and long but thanks to Attorney Vacchi we avoided going to trial.

Jolee is not only good at what she does she is kind, empathetic and reasonable.
I went through a heart wrenching awful custody battle with a shark (both my ex and his lawyer). Jolee was always professional with them even when they weren’t with us. She kept her composure and kept me calm. She showed her true mediation skills offering balanced and fair solutions. They lied, name called and were just hateful through the whole process which is sad considering we were dealing with custody. Jolee never lost sight of that and the truth did prevail. I was fortunate to have a calm empathetic and smart lawyer on my side during one of the worst times in my life.

Professional and efficient!
I worked with Jolee to form a prenuptial for my fiancee (now wife) and I. Jolee asked great questions and seemed to be experienced and knowledgeable. I came with some helpful already hashed out desires for the prenuptial which were refined and then reflected accurately in the final contract. We added a few things that I never would have thought of and clarified others. I will definitely be referring others to Jolee!

Attorney Vacchi did the most amazing job for my divorce case. She was consistently available to answer any and all questions that I had, and most importantly she was always straight forward and honest with me. She made me feel as if I was not going through this experience alone and offered insight I never would have otherwise considered in a realistic and professional manner. Attorney Vacchi fought extremely hard for my requests and was in my corner 100% of the time. She advocated for me thoroughly in the courtroom and in conversations with opposing council. I could not recommend her services more for someone experiencing a difficult time like this.
