Caring and Experienced Family Law Attorney
I have practiced exclusively in the area of family law for my entire legal career. I have extensive experience in all aspects of family law, including divorce, allocation of parenting time and parental responsibilities, child support, maintenance, property identification and distribution, intricate business valuation issues, high asset marital estates, qualified domestic relations orders, post-decree matters, parentage cases and appellate matters.
Each case presents a different set of facts and provides clients with an explanation of their legal rights as it relates to their situation so that the client can make an informed decision. I strive to zealously represent my client’s interests, whether it be through contested litigation or settlement negotiations.
I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, in 2004 in Economics and Psychology. I then attended law school and earned my J.D.,cum laude, from Notre Dame University, South Bend, Indiana, in 2007. During law school, I was awarded the Dean Konop award for excellence in her work as a GAL for minor children and was a selected as a member of the Journal of Legislation. Jessica is an active member of the Illinois State Bar Association and DuPage County Bar Association and volunteers as an alumni recruiter for the University of Michigan. I reside in Wheaton with my family and enjoy spending time with family and friends, exploring with my kids outdoors, traveling and reading.
