A Fantastic Collaborative Divorce Lawyer
As I began to embark on my first (and hopefully only) divorce, my ex-wife and I had decided that we wanted to use the collaborative approach to divorce. And as a transgender woman, it was extremely import for me to find an attorney who was LGBTQ+ friendly, especially considering I was still navigating the gender transition process. I am so grateful that I found Jessica Heltsley. She was absolutely wonderful! She expertly provided guidance throughout the entire process, which allowed me to make well-informed decisions regarding topics that would have, otherwise, felt very overwhelming to me. And Jessica exhibited a tremendous amount of compassion and empathy towards me and she made me feel comfortable from the first time we spoke. Any concerns over how I might be treated as a transgender woman evaporated immediately. While no divorce is "easy", I could not have wished for a smoother, more well planned out process than what I experienced with Jessica and her extensive amount of collaborative law experience. In addition to all of that, it is reassuring to know that, as my ex-wife and I navigate post-divorces issue, I know that I can continue to work with Jessica as a post-divorce coach. I HIGHLY recommend Jessica to anyone who is making the decision to go through the collaborative divorce process. You will not be disappointed!

Jessica handled my divorce. She couldn't have been more professional, conscientious, diligent, or timely. In addition she's very easy to work with. Couldn't recommend her more.

My attorney, Jessica Pospiech
Jessica handed my case with the utmost respect and professionalism. She was always accessible via phone, text and email. She was very thorough, but did not "pad" time against my case. I highly recommend her services.

Professional & caring
Jessica took an intimidating and emotional process, and made it as smooth as it could possibly be! Her guidance and transparency every step of the way helped me to make decisions with confidence and gave me an active role in the process. I was kept informed of every update and felt that she truly cared about my well-being and my future. She explained every scenario & option during the process, and always made feel assured that the future would be in my hands & we were in this together, I would absolutely recommend her to anyone in this difficult situation!

Knowledgeable, Helpful, and Reasonable
Good divorce lawyers are definitely not cheap, but you definitely get what you pay for. Initially I thought I could navigate the process on my own, but I was so glad that I had an experienced attorney to ensure that the process was handled correctly. Jessica was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and was able to provide perfect guidance through this process. While my ex and I were completely amicable throughout the entire divorce, Jessica assisted with all of the framework for us to divide assets, she prepared and filed all of required paperwork (which is so complex if you haven't done this before), prepared us for what to exacty what to expect, and provided valuable advice at every step of the way. She was honest, professional, and understanding. When our court date was cancelled due to weather she was able to quickly reschedule so our judgement wouldn't be delayed. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone in my position. Do not go through this process on your own!

Great to work with
I recently worked with Jessica during my divorce process. From my initial consultation all the way to our first (and only) day in court, I could not be happier that I chose her to represent me. Jessica was very easy to talk to and very considerate when it came to discussing tough personal matters. Any question I had, she had an answer and explained everything in detail very well so that I fully understood. She made the entire process very clear and easy to get through. I cannot thank her enough for everything she did for me.

Professional and compassionate
Jessica worked closely with me through a very complex process involving multiple states and a correctional facility. She was always supportive and did her best to ensure all steps were done as economically as possible. Through all the chaos, she was professional and went the extra mile to ensure things went smoothly. I admit I was lost when the process began, but I finding Jessica was the best thing that could have happened.

Very satisfied
Jessica was very upfront and honest with me. She came reccommended to me by a couple friends. I'm really glad I went with he! She was beyond patient with me. I was very anxious and she was available and showed care towards my case, my concerns and my children's best interest. Overall I am 100% happy with the decision to have her represent me in my divorce.

Great experience, great outcome
Jessica was recommended by a friend and also by another highly respected attorney that did not do work in the county that my case was in. From the 1st meeting with Jessica, I felt that I was her most important client. Jessica worked diligently to solve issues, stayed in constant contact with me and was able to work extremely well with a difficult opposing counsel. I feel that she was very fair and well worth every penny that I was charged for her services. I will definitely ask for her help if I am ever in need of an attorney again.

Jessica Pospiech Review
Jessica was a tremendous resource to me. Thankfully, my divorce was amicable; and I did not need a lot of time. However, when I did need her I found her to be responsive, empathetic, knowledgeable and professional.

Professional, Supportive, and Gets the Job Done!
Jessica went above and beyond my expectations. From beginning the process with clear and well-explained options to sending final paperwork promptly after the hearing, she keep me involved every step of the way. Not only is she prompt in her replies (even answering on her vacation!), but she is respectful, professional, and courteous to all parties. I could go on, but let it suffice to say that hiring Jessica has been one of the best decisions I've made.

Knowledgeable and understanding lawyer
Jessica helped me so much in my divorce process. Everything went smooth thanks to her. I did not have to worry about anything... when I had concerns or questions, she always got back to me with professional answers and gave me options to think over until I am 100% sure about the decision. She is very professional in a perfect way that I felt conformable sharing my personal feelings throughout the difficult times. My case involved with concerns about the immigration status. It ended up not contacting the immigration lawyer but she was willing to reach out to my immigration lawyer if necessary. When it comes to hiring a layer, one of my big concers were about the fee... She explained the terms clearly and provided me detailed invoices in a timely manner. I cannot thank her enough and so glad she was my first lawyer. Thank you, Jessica.

Jessica's Collaborative Expertise
I chose the Collaborative option of divorce because I felt it was the best option for the interests of our two small children. Collaborative allowed my ex spouse and I to reach agreement on all the terms of a mutually agreed upon divorce settlement based on a number of meetings that we participated in with our collaberative lawyers. I did not want a traditional divorce process where a judge could unilaterally rule in a way that would disadvantage my children. Jessica is an amazing lawyer. Her legal expertise combined with her awesome interpersonal skills made it a pleasure to have her represent me.

Professional and compassionate
Jessica is professional, knowledgeable, compassionate and easy to talk to. She kept me informed about each step in the divorce process and was very responsive to any questions that arose. She is an excellent attorney, and I believe her approach to divorce/family law encouraged my ex and I to cooperate and co-parent during our separation and following our divorce. She made a very difficult time for me much easier, and I would highly recommend her to anyone I know.

Since then, I have had the opportunity to have several cases with her, as well as to serve with her on the board of the Collaborative Practice Institute of Michigan. I can say without hesitation that Jessica is one of the hardest-working, most competent attorneys I know. She has an amazing "Can Do" attitude that is contagious. As an opposing counsel, she is tough but fair, exactly as an advocate should be. I would - and have - referred cases to her whenever possible, because she is such a pleasure to work with and so good at her job. Whether it be for a Collaborative case or a mediation, she will continue to be one of the first attorneys I think to call."
