About Jessica

Learn Jessica’s areas of practice.

Jessica Armentrout is a North Carolina native of the Piedmont Triad area, who provides clients with child custody, child support, equitable distribution, alimony, separation agreements, and pre-marital agreements. Born and raised in Thomasville, North Carolina. She attended Trinity High School, where she was a member of the tennis team. Jessica then attended Clemson University and was a member of the Calhoun Honors College. She majored in English and Journalism, and was on the Clemson Water Ski Team. She then did a graduate year program at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel, focusing on Israeli Society and Politics.

Like many people, Jessica went to law school without a clear idea of the area in which she wanted to practice. Ultimately, she chose to practice family law because this field makes room for a remarkable amount of diversity. She has had to study criminal law, tax law, estate planning, and general civil law in the course of representing different clients dealing with a range of family law issues. No two, family law cases are the same, so it is never boring! Generally, those who are seeking a family law attorney are at one of the lowest points in their lives. She enjoys being able to help those clients find a way forward, and Jessica is honored by the people who choose to put their faith in her to achieve their goals.

Jessica is a graduate of Elon University School of Law, where she was a member of the Federalist Society, and she class representative to the Student Bar Association. She was with a general practice firm in Winston-Salem before moving to a boutique family law firm, also in Winston-Salem, in September of 2016. She joined Greenwood Law in May of 2019, and continues to work primarily on family law matters.

Jessica is a member of the Forsyth County Bar Association and the North Carolina Bar Association.

Outside of the office, Jessica enjoys tennis, skiing (water and snow), and spending time with her dog, Ella.

Compassionate and tough
Jessica took my difficult case when I thought it would never end. She was attentive and listened to my concerns. She kept us focused on realistic goals and the outcome was very favorable. She was so responsive to my calls and emails. She was available to meet when needed. She fought very hard to help me in many ways during the almost 2 years we worked together.

Paramount professional
From the moment I contacted the firm, Jessica was incredibly responsive. I had a critically short time window in which to be actionable and she assessed my situation, rapidly provided options, and moved forward with the process I needed quickly and efficiently. Without her knowledge and professionalism, this would have been a horribly long, drawn out situation and she saved me so much headache and time! I honestly cannot recommend Jessica enough. Above and beyond legal services, she is also just a pleasure to work with - everyone in the firm is wonderful!

caring and relatable!
I first met Jessica in an emergency situation and she was able to make me feel as calm in the situation as I could have been. While she was my lawyer, I was never caught off guard and was always prepared. Jessica would always keep me up to date and she is very good at answering questions in a way that you can understand. I would definitely recommend Jessica to anyone who needs a family lawyer!

Ms. Armentrout has been nothing but amazing. She has kept me informed the entire time and has answered any questions that I have had along the way. When dealing with the outcome of your children you need some that truly cares about you and your children's well being. From the moment I met Ms. Armentrout, I knew she would be the best fit for myself and my family. I would recommend her to anyone that wants to feel like their feelings and the outcome are actually important.
