family council
Jessica and her amazing staff were very detailed and extremely professional. With our very first consultation, I felt that I was truly represented by the BEST firm, and the ensuing results absolutely confirmed this. I would highly recommend this outstanding council!

The Best, Period!
I retained Jessica for my divorce. I knew from the beginning that my ordeal was going to be difficult given my spouse’s personality type and the reputation of the counsel she had retained. As was predicted, things quickly deteriorated with heinous false accusations that aimed to ruin my career and rob me of my time with my children. Having Jessica in my corner not only saved my professional career but my life as well. Today, I have an excellent loving relationship with my children and a life free of toxicity.

High Stakes
Jessica was recommended to me by a trusted friend. During our initial consultation, I had no idea know how to handle the complex legal and financial issues that come along with a divorce in your early 40’s. To be honest, I still don’t know all the ins and outs, and like most people, I never will. Fortunately, Jessica did. Getting a divorce meant I had A LOT at stake, and I needed an attorney with a reputation as “the best” when it came to divorce. I’m very pleased with the outcome of my divorce and I whole heartedly recommend Jessica to represent you during yours, especially if you’ve got a lot to lose.

Excellent Attorney
Jessica and the her team were great throughout the entire process of my divorce. She listened to my concerns, addressed my questions promptly and with compassion and always made me feel like I would get through this with the best possible outcome, which I believe I did. My options were always explained to me so that I could make decisions based on what was going to be best for me and my family.

Jessica Woll is a fantastic attorney
Jessica not only helped me through my divorce, she helped me understand the process along the way. She was always available to answer any questions. If I needed to talk to her or ask a question, she always made time for me. She did such a great job for me and my children-better than I hoped for when I started this process. I would highly recommend Jessica to anyone! She knows family law inside and out, and anyone who hires her is making the best decision!!

FRIENDS FOREVER
Divorce is a difficult and long process with numerous ups and downs, emotions and bumps in the road along the way. Jessica, Kelly, Tammy , Terri and Sarah are the most amazing team to have on your side during this awful event in ones life. I began my divorce along time ago and never thought I would be where I am today! With the knowledge and the skills this firm brings to you there is no other firm I would trust. I feel as If I have friends forever. Somebody on my team was always there with a shoulder to cry on or a punching bag for the rough times. All my concerns and questions were always answered and worked through so that I understood the process every step of the way and what MY options were. I was able to be myself and be open and honest with no judgements from anyone I spoke with. They may be a bit more expensive as others say but you get your moneys worth and like myself I have gained friends for life! This is a firm that truly cares about its clients from the first meeting and after the divorce is final.... This you cant get any place else..

The Best
My first divorce attorney made me feel like a door mat. She tried to convince me that the outcome of my case was already predetermined and there was not much I could do. I wanted someone who would fight for me, and respect what I had brought to the table during the 25 year marriage. I replaced my first attorney with Jessica’s and her team. From the initial call to the end Jessica competence and confidence gave me a feeling of relief. She also assembled the best experts, there professionalism amazed me and they stomped on the opposing counsel, it was a joy to see the frustration in the eyes and voices of the opposing team. In the end, the settlement Jessica got me was 30% less than what I had initially offered, and around 75% less than what they wanted. If you want the best on your side, hire Jessica before your ex does. You really want Jessica and her team on your side of the table.

There are no words powerful enough to express my gratitude & respect for Woll & Woll
Divorce, as all life-changing events, is frought with difficulties. My divorce was no different. What made mine such a resounding success was Jessica Woll and her Paralegal, Kelly. They secured my assets, served divorce papers in Afghanistan & not only knew how to handle opposing counsel, they knew how to handle me when I was struggling. Their knowledge of the law and the climate of court system is broad and deep. The mere mention of Jessica Woll being my lawyer brought a knowing head nods and immediate respect. I will forever be grateful for their knowledge and support.

So far, so good.
I am muddling through the divorce process. I hired Jessica Woll because of her knowledge and ability to clarify what the process means to me personally. She is a trusted advisor with regard to assets and parenting time and is aggressively representing my interests. I had talked to other attorneys before hiring Jessica and am thrilled with her ability to navigate the complexity of my case. Her 20 years of experience seem to have made a huge difference in how she has approached my situation compared to her peers. She is sensitive to the needs of my kids, very detailed oriented and well prepared for court. Hire her for results.

Jessica Woll- Highest Recommendation
Though divorce is never a welcomed event, I had interviewed several divorce attorneys in the Metro Detroit area and was most impressed with Jessica and her team. After having met with 5-7 other attorneys, her experience, advice and willingness to listen with empathy made her the clear choice. During the process Jessica and her team provided me with realistic advice/recommendation and kept me well informed throughout this difficult process. I have, without hesitation, recommended Jessica Woll and her firm to many friends and know that she will provide the same level of expertise, professionalism and results. She is definitely the right choice to represent you.....in the end, would much rather have her on my side than to be working against her and her team!!

Smart, strong, strategic
Jessica Woll and her team are true professionals, dedicated to helping clients through the excruciating process of divorce. I found Jessica to be not only knowledgeable, hard-working and connected, but highly strategic in her thinking. In my experience, she knew the law, did the research, and was willing to work much harder and smarter than opposing counsel. There was no contest; Jessica was head and shoulders above the opposition. She is intelligent, tough, and lightening fast, and didn’t let opposing counsel get away with their old-school bullying and other inappropriate tactics. If you want an attorney with strength, smarts and strategy, you’ll want Jessica to be fighting for you.

ABOVE AND BEYOND
Jessica and her staff were beyond amazing to me during this horribly difficult time in my life. My ex and his attorney did not make it easy, but Jessica handled them both with ease. She got me a great settlement and I could not be happier! I would highly recommend this firm; they do a phenomenal job.

JOD Oakland County
She was very effective with my CPP(Co-parenting partner) whom was abusive and falsely accusing me. She preserved my integrity as well as our personal info. Jessicas firm goes the extra mile to make sure project D as I called is as tolerable as possibe. Also very knowledgable in the county official and other D lawyers.

"Simply the Best" (to steal a line from Tina Turner)
For anyone in need of the BEST Family Law Attorney look no further than Jessica Woll! I am a police officer and a man who was fighting for custody of my two children and despite being falsely accused of several things during the divorce process Jessica and her Legal Assistant Ceres were able to get me SOLE custody of my children. They saved my family and I now consider them part of my extended family. I could go on and on but I will just say this--if you have a family issue that is something important to you and your family, Jessica Woll, Ceres, and their team are the only team I would consider.

Hire Jessica Woll
I hired Jessica during the worst time in my life. My divorce was unexpected and very painful. Jessica and her staff eased that pain. She ensured that my son and I would be well cared for after the divorce was over. She listened to me and provided sound advice for handling anything from simple disagreements between my spouse and me about pick-up/drop-off times to dealing with the most complicated financial issue. I recommend Jessica and her staff to anyone going through a divorce or related matter. They really know what they are doing!!

Jessica Woll is the attorney you need!
Attorney Woll got me a great parenting time award. I was very happy that she was the outstanding attorney that everyone said she was. She was aggressive when she needed to be and worked with my ex's attorney at the perfect time for me to get the schedule that was best for my family. I highly recommend this attorney for parenting time problems as her skills are impressive. I truly feel that she and her staff cared for me and my girls.

Excellent Divorce Attorney
She was the most knowledgeable divorce attorney I interviewed (and I interviewed four). I would highly recommend her to friends/family. I was very pleased with the results in my divorce action. She was willing to fight for me at a time that I wasn't able to fight for myself. She got the results she promised me in my first interview with her. SHE TRULY WAS THE BEST!
