An attorney with honesty and integrity. Highly recommended!
Jacqueline is a fantastic lawyer and I would recommend her to anyone dealing with divorce and child custody issues. She was always very honest and up-front with me about everything and I never felt like I was out of the loop. Though she would ultimately do what I asked of her, she would push back when she didn't agree with something I was saying. This was very important to me because family court can be very emotional and I needed someone in my corner who could see the big picture and not get lost in the weeds. Specifically, Jackie handled all the paperwork and went to the status conferences in my place. We would chat beforehand and afterward, but I was able to avoid the stressful experience of hearing the other side. She would receive all the emails from the opposing counsel and deal with them accordingly, only bringing me in the loop when necessary. This was exactly what I wanted in a lawyer and she delivered. Jackie is also very kind and compassionate, which was also very important to me during such a contentious time. I highly recommend Jackie to anyone who values honesty and integrity. She didn't always tell me what I wanted to hear, but she always told me what I needed to hear. I felt like she had my back and she'll be the first person I call if something comes up again.

Divorce Attorney
Jackie was the perfect balance of professional and personal during the most trying time in my life. She was responsive and timely. She was supportive, while not sugar coating possible outcomes. Her responsibilities were performed with the utmost care and when decisions fell on me, she gave me all the options and information I needed to make them with confidence. Highly recommend Jackie!

Highly Recommend
Jackie was incredibly helpful and diligent from the first meeting to after my divorce was finalized. She kept me informed of my case status but more importantly she advocated for me and my future. She was thoughtful and thorough, she ensured I fully understood the documents we were preparing and my options to move forward.

Strong advocate, professional and supportive
Jackie did an excellent job advocating for me while maintaining her professionalism. She was always honest and fair in her advice to me and courteous and diligent in her dealings with opposing counsel. Her work ethic and good sense of humor were a blessing during a challenging time.

If your looking for a great attorney, look no further
I can't say enough about Jacqi, she was very pleasant, helpful, honest (even when it's not what you want to hear) real person with some compassion. I was very nervous due to a previous experience with a different attorney and had let those fears from before get to me. I reached out to Jacqi and expressed my concerns and fears and she assured me she was and would do her best to help. I can't speak for the other party but I feel she presented her self in a way of just dealing with facts and in a non intimidating and dignified manner. Which is not how I felt when being examined by other parties attorney. Jacqi was upfront and honest, I feel I made a choice to go in a direction maybe not necessarily the route she would of gone or chosen and she just explained she will do her best but know that at this point whatever the outcome is, is out of both parties hands. I think much to both of our surprise, or at least for me the outcome was more than I could of imagined or hoped for. I would not of been as prepared or successful if not for her!

I feel like I can breath again!
Jacqueline Moss represented me in my child support and parental rights modifications. Jackie went above and beyond to listen to not only me, but my family as well. I suffer from anxiety issues. Jackie was there to help me through all of my anxiety and calm me down. Even if it was her telling me the same things over and over that I needed to hear. What I am most thankful for is Jackie helping me keep my son safe! Jackie is very nice and caring. Jackie always had a smile and a gentle voice. I would recommend her to anyone who needs help with their divorce and child custody. I am forever thankful for all Jackie has done!

Divorce with child
My case was very difficult. I had a divorce with children and Jackie was amazing.. she took me on at last minute and was very patient with me with all the questions I was asking her. In my eyes I won my case because of Jackie.. If it was not for her as my lawyer I think I would of had a harder time winning my case and a lot more stress. If you are looking for a lawyer that listens,answers questions, and can lean on during court Jackie is the right lawyer. I would definitely hire her again in the future if I need another lawyer.

She's the BEST!!
I was referred to Jacqueline and the Maine Community Lawyers Project via an attorney friend of mine. Upon first meeting I felt immediately comfortable discussing my case (custodial/parental rights- infant daughter) with Jacqueline. She was open to listen and willing to process with me throughout, always asking what my goals were and keeping me focused on what was best for my child. She was supportive and fought hard to get everything I had hoped for re: visitation, parental rights and cooperation from my ex. I felt respected, justified in my concerns and a certain comfort in knowing I was working with a professional attorney who knew what to do and how to do it. Jacqueline is clearly passionate about helping families reach positive resolve. I can't thank her enough.

Solid Representation with Sensitivity in Family Court Matters
Ms. Moss represented me in a recent child custody case. Throughout this family court process I was relieved to have her representation and legal support. She took the time to respond to my questions and explain the statutes related to my case and advocated for the emotional and financial well-being of my children. She was not intimidated by the legal process and was a beacon of strength and information during a difficult, confusing, and overwhelming process. Although relatively new to practice, she was knowledgeable and able to seek our information she was unsure about. I would strongly recommend her as representation.
