About Jammie

Learn Jammie’s areas of practice.

Ever since she was a child, Jammie has always wanted to become an attorney. She has always had a passion for helping the people she knew through some of their toughest problems and knew she wanted to find a way to make that her career.    

Driven by her determination to help families and those in need, she began her collegiate career at Nash Community College in Rocket Mount, North Carolina. During her time at NCC, she was the Parliamentarian for the Gamma Beta Phi Honor Society and she was chosen by staff and faculty to represent the school at the Student Leadership Institute. In addition to participating in these activities, she made time in her studies to work three jobs while attending NCC.

After completing the College Transfer program at Nash Community College, she attended North Carolina Wesleyan College where she graduated Cum Laude and received her B.A. in History with a minor in Political Science. While at NCWC she developed a passion for political science and joined the political science honor society, Pi Sigma Alpha. In her final semester, her dreams became a reality when she was accepted into North Carolina Central University School of Law.

At NCCU, she continued to be an active participant in campus activities. She was a member of the Intellectual Property Law Society, but devoted most of her time to the Pro Bono program, which allowed her to help people who were less fortunate and in need of legal assistance. She participated in the Elder Law Project where she was able to gain experience writing wills for clients and the Lawyer on the Line Project where she assisted Legal Aid by providing clients with legal guidance as to how to handle their landlord-tenant matters. Jammie closed out her final year at law school through an externship with the Honorable Lori G. Christian of the Wake County Family Court writing pro se orders.

Drafting wills
Ms. Wacenske did an excellent job of drawing up reciprocal wills for my wife and myself. She listened carefully to our wishes and made a number of very useful suggestions as to how the will should be drafted. She also was very helpful in making several changes that my wife later requested. Ms. Wacenske regularly apprised us of the status of the process and sent us three drafts for review. We did not have to actually visit the law office until the wills were ready to be signed; everything else was done by email and electronic documents. Ms. Wacenske and her staff took care of everything, and the price was very reasonable. I would definitely recommend Ms. Wacenske to individuals or couples who wish to make wills.

Jammie Lynn Wacenske acquired excellent results for my case
Jammie Lynn Wacenske handled the collection of a judgment that has been pending for 11 years. She was energetic and relentless until the problem was solved. She kept me up to date on her actions and negotiations in the case. Excellent results!

Speeding ticket that Jammie handled for me.
Jammie was able to get a speeding ticket I received for going 80 in a 55 reduced to a vehicle violation. She was very courteous and was able to explaine the procedures and the outcome of my ticket in terms that I could understand. I will call her again if I need assistance if any kind.

| Consulted Attorney
not knowledgable
I consulted with this attorney about an estate issue and instead of saying she didn't handle this type of case she continued to talk about something she didn't know about. There were many "ummms" in the conversation while she was clearly trying to figure out what to say. Very unprofessional. I was placed on hold so she could go ask a colleague how to respond because she didn't know what she was talking about. If you don't practice that type of law, you should be upfront and not advise someone incorrectly.

Response from Jammie Wacenske December 4, 2017
Our office does not often respond to negative reviews, but we feel it appropriate in this case. It is unfortunate that sometimes our personalities, presentation, or legal opinions do not entirely meet the expectations of every client or potential client. We do our best to be diligent, forthright, and accurate in advising even potential clients. In this case, the type of question that was asked was not common in estate administration matters. Under these circumstances, we feel that Ms. Wacenske did her best and accurately relayed the pertinent law to the potential client. When challenged by the potential client on her initial statement of the law, Ms. Wacenske consulted with a senior partner in the office and responded to the potential client as quickly as possible. We were providing the very highest level of legal advice that we could given that the potential client was looking for immediate feedback. The senior partner confirmed Ms. Wacenske’s statement of the law in NC and as much was relayed back to the potential client. Unfortunately for this potential client, the law in NC does not allow the sort of quick, unilateral, and summary action that the potential client wanted taken in her matter. We advised the client that the only legal option available to her was to pursue a court order, which can take time and significant expense. The potential client did not agree with our assessment of the law in NC, thanked Ms. Wacenske for her time, and then very quickly hung up. We strive to do the best we can for each and every client and potential client. Unfortunately, sometimes we are unable to meet the expectations of every person who calls our office, especially when the person is under duress or has unrealistic expectations regarding their circumstances.
