Jessica explained everything thoroughly, and was incredibly helpful during my divorce, despite having to deal with a difficult attorney on the other end of things. She responded promptly whenever I contacted her, & was incredibly knowledgeable about every aspect of my divorce. More importantly, she was 100% correct about everything, which saved me a significant amount of money. I cannot recommend her enough.

I am so happy with the services and the professionalism that was provided by Jessica while handling my case.
When I first contacted her, I was so worried about how complicated the legalities would be. But the documents prepared for my case and her advice on how to approach the situation was awesome.
Thank you Jessica for helping our family through this rough patch!

I hired Jessica Malmquist to represent me when I filed for divorce in 2012. She quickly became my life line. My case was complicated as I had been married for 23 years and had 4 children from that marriage. I had been a stay at home Mom raising the kids and taking care of the home the entire time. My husband was a physician with very controlling and narcissistic behavior. When I met with Jessica I was probably at one of the lowest points in my life not having family nearby and no where to go to feel secure and I was extremely afraid. Jessica took over and took care of everything and never let me down once. I needed to file and get an order of protection at the same time and she handled it all completely for me. My ex husband tried everything he could to set me up as an unfit parent and unfit homemaker and not give me funds to pay the bills being in contempt. and Jessica was always One step ahead and made sure all grounds were covered. She had my back and fought for me completely. It was a difficult case but she handled it fantastically and with grace and kindness. She is a loving and caring hunan being which is hard to find in most lawyers. See knows the law well and was completely organized. She always was reachable to answer all questions and guide me through a very difficult time. I would recommend her highly to anyone. She will not disappoint you and is truly the best out there.!!!
