About Jacqueline

Learn Jacqueline’s areas of practice.

Although you can’t avoid every risk, you need to know what they are and prepare for them. So is having a lawyer and a law firm who knows how to manage risks and help you achieve your goals. That’s what solid counseling can do–whether you are in litigation (Jackie’s handled cases in state, federal, bankruptcy and appellate courts), writing, reviewing or negotiating contracts, or facing other challenges. Managing your risks and helping you achieve your goals–that’s Jackie’s goal.

Jackie is the first female partner in Jones Obenchain’s 100+ year history. She considers it her greatest privilege to provide business counseling and management of legal issues for her clients to bring a resolution as promptly as possible. Assessing risks, putting together a plan and helping you navigate your course is what Jackie does best. But if litigation results, Jackie’s a seasoned litigator who can help you understand what the issues are, both legal and business, and help you decide the right direction to take. Although she focuses on business disputes, Jackie has experience in construction and personal injury.

Jackie’s also a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Trustee, a post she’s held since 2002. As a trustee, it’s her job to liquidate assets for distribution to creditors and assist in protecting the integrity of the bankruptcy system. As trustee, she stays connected in nearly every legal arena, giving her a unique perspective and ability to serve all her clients with a broad perspective on their needs.

Outside the office, she’s a wife and a mom; a dancer; plays golf and runs. Active in her local community, she serves in a variety of servant and leadership positions.

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Very thorough and effective
I hired Ms Homann to help me negotiate and remove myself from a corporate structure and real estate LLC. The contra side of this transaction were challenging to work with. I just wanted out. Jackie was able to both work with the other side as well well as walk me through different parts of the many parts of the transaction. She was also able to make sure that I got the correct indemnifications and releases while simultaneously not giving too much on my side (in interest of just GETTING OUT). She was also very helpful in explaining the 'legal-eze'. I appreciated her candor and ease of speaking with and 'hand-holding' when parts got stressful. I will definitely be keeping her number close for further advice/transactions in the state. If you want to get more granular feel free to contact Jackie and if it makes sense she will pass along my contact info.

Highly recommended
I was recommended Ms. Homann by a friend for the establishment of a partnership agreement and general advice on starting a new business venture with a partner. Ms. Homann is both professional and personable and a pleasure to deal with.

Good experience
Mrs. Homann has assisted with various collections and human resources matters and brings a sharp legal mind and real world understanding that can be difficult to find in an attorney. As a litigator she was prepared and purposeful, not to mention successful.

Ms. Homann's Review
I have used the legal services of Ms. Homann for both my business and personal needs for a number of years. I have used other attorneys and firms in the past and have found Ms. Homann to be the most suited to handle the wide range of legal issues we have, she is very satisfactory. She is quite detailed and responsive to our many legal needs. I would and often do recommend to other business associates.
