Family law is my passion.  My goal is to help my clients transition to their next stage of life as quickly and efficiently as possible.  I am extremely successful at resolving my client's issues without the need (and additional cost) of court intervention.  I am part of the Cooperative Practice Network, and I am trained to find solutions but still address your concerns.  Settlement is not always an option though.  If court involvement is necessary, I am ready to aggressively represent you in the courtroom.  

I practice exclusively in family law, which ranges from simple divorces (draft up agreements between parties), high conflict divorces, high net worth divorces, spousal maintenance, custody disputes, modifications of custody and parenting time, child support, post-decree issues, step-parent adoptions, grandparent rights, father's right, and domestic abuse.  I have extensive experience dealing with one party having mental health concerns and drug/alcohol abuse.

Prior to joining Capistrant Law, P.A., I practiced primarily in family law but also practiced in areas including real estate, landlord-tenant, personal injury, DWI defense, and basic estate planning.  I am proudly born and raised in Brookings, South Dakota. I received my law degree from Creighton School of Law in Omaha, Nebraska and my undergraduate degree from the Minnesota State University, Mankato.  In 2004, I was a law clerk for Magistrate Thomas D. Thalken at the United States District Court of Nebraska in Omaha, NE.

I am actively involved in the twin cities family law community.  I am a past Chair of the MSBA Family Law Section, a past Chair of the annual Family Law Institute, a member of the AFCC, Women Lawyers, Family Law League and I volunteer regularly with the Volunteer Lawyers Network. 

I'm ready to help you.  Give me a call to set up a consultation.

Super Lawyer is an understatement
Had a very complex custody case with almost unrealistic timetables that were needed to keep our daughter safe. Jill absolutely astounded us with her tenacity, knowledge of specific statutes, and the literal 12 hour day she worked to get the orders, affidavits, etc written, submitted and served. I was beyond impressed. And we won! Just an amazing experience from start to finish. Highest possible recommendation.

Great attorney
Jill is a wonderful, kind, understanding attorney. She is not pushy and will follow your wishes. Jill is extremely knowledgeable and will share her perceptions of the situation upon asking. Her fees are very reasonably priced. Divorce is extremely heartbreaking no matter "how prepare" one might believe. Jill helped to take the "sting" out of the process. I highly recommend her.

Quick and Pain Free Divorce
Jill took the scary out of attorney and made my divorce seem simple. I'm not kidding. I met with her once, and then we did everything else via email and phone. I had the simplest kind of divorce, nothing to divide really, however Jill was essential in getting it done the right way. She stayed true to her word on her rates, and was also helpful in explaining all the legal jargon. Jill was very relatable, and in many ways seemed like an old friend helping me through a rough time. I would recommend her to anyone. She was awesome.

"Jill is smart, professional, compassionate, and highly skilled. She is a great problem solver."
Family Attorney | Jun 30
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Jill is an exceptional attorney and leader within the family law bar. She brings not only strong advocacy skills to all of her cases, but thoughtfulness and professionalism. Jill will always work hard for her clients, while maintaining collegiality toward opposing counsel and parties. She stays informed of all the new developments in family law and brings that expertise to each case she takes on."
Family Attorney | May 26
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Jill has exceptional legal skills: she is smart, strategic and effective. I refer clients to her and I heartily recommend her."
Family Attorney | May 25
Relationship: Co-worker
"Jill came to work for Capistrant Law in June of 2013. The intention was to have her help support the work the firm already was managing. Jill quickly eclipsed all of that as clients sought her out and she developed her own practice. Firm, yet kind, Jill is an excellent Family Law attorney. Clients connect easily with her and trust her ability to advocate on their behalf. As the recent Chair of the Family Law Section of the Minnesota State Bar Association, she demonstrated her leadership and organizational skills while staying abreast of the many changes in family law practice in 2015. Capistrant Law picked a clear winner when Jill joined the team; any client will be served well with her as counsel. Jill works hard, is committed and caring. I highly recommend Jill to any client seeking representation in a family law matter."
