Ms. Ilarraza is a 2006 graduate of the University of Florida, where she received dual degrees, a Bachelor of Science in Journalism Reporting and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. In 2010, Ms. Ilarraza received her Juris Doctor from Emory University School of Law.  During law school, Ms. Ilarraza served on the executive board of the Black Law Students Association, as the Editor-in-Chief of the Southern Region Black Law Students Association Law Journal and as a member of the Emory Public Interest Committee.  Her commitment to serving the public interest led her to intern at the DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office, the Barton Juvenile Defender Clinic, and the Georgia Innocence Project. As a result, Emory Law honored her with the Pro Bono Award.

Ms. Ilarraza’s passion for litigation led her to serve as a team captain and coach of the Emory Mock Trial Society and to assist in the coordination of the Kessler-Edison Trial Techniques Program.  Her trial abilities led Emory Law to recognize her as an “Emory Advocate.”

Before founding Ilarraza Law, P.C., Ms. Ilarraza was able to refine her litigation skills by defending clients against various causes of action, including premises liability, personal injury protection and general negligence for a Fortune 500 company in Florida, and work as a senior attorney for a medium-sized family law firm in Virginia. She has a passion for family law, and has devoted her career to successfully advocate for clients dealing with issues involving divorce, child custody and visitation, and child support.

When you want the Best!
When it comes to legal representation, I started by looking at reviews. I try to be open minded because I know some people will put a bad review because things did not turn out the way they wanted. I am not going to rule anyone out for a bad review or two. I visited several law firms with an open mind to see what they could do to help me, but none made me feel comfortable. I was looking for someone who cared, someone who would take the time to listen. Someone who would see my case and handle it as if it were their own case. Mostly, I wanted someone who was honest and after several consults, I decided to give Ilarraza Law Office a chance. I was immediately impressed by the genuine compassion this firm displayed. My consult lasted longer than I thought it would and it was because they took the time to listen. That was a big plus for me! My case was not an easy one. It was complex but the Ilarraza Law Office put their heart into it. Each time I called or emailed, the paralegals and attorney's responded quickly and eased my mind. They were prepared and on top of things the minute we hit the courtroom. I was beyond happy with Jennifer and her ability to present my case. Jennifer was professional, quick on her feet and fought for me every step of the way. I was so pleased with the outcome!! I know this is long post, but it was important for me to give this firm the best review and hopefully help others when they are faced with choosing a law firm. Thank you Jennifer and the amazing staff at Ilarraza Law Office for everything!!

Look no further. Jennifer can handle your case.
If I could give Jennifer and her team 10 stars would time and time again. Life is stressful enough while going thru a divorce don't waste time interviewing multiple attorney offices like I did. After the crazy case I had I promise you Jennifer and her team can handle anything thrown at them. I spent 4 years with Jennifer and was very happy with every single win she her extremely talented and hard working team got for me. I can not say enough good things. I am SO happy my case is over but I will never forget the people at Ilarraza and all that they have done for me and my daughter.

If you want to win your case, call Jennifer Ilarraza.
Jennifer is extremely knowledgeable about the law and tenacious in her approach to representing her client’s in the best way possible. While my experience with her was more on a consultative scenario, the advice she offered during that time was invaluable and netted positive results for my personal situation. I know of several others, that have hired her and she was able to either win their cases or obtain a favorable settlement. If you want someone who cares, does their due diligence, and is great in representing their clients in the best way possible, give Jennifer a call.

Best divorce around!
Jennifer is amazing. She has helped me through every step of the way of my divorce. She listens to what I want to do and will make sure it's done to the highest quality. My divorce has been messy, but I couldn't have gotten to this point without all the people at Ilarraza Law. We had our first court appearance and I was a ball of nerves but knowing I had Jennifer on my side put me at ease. Thank you all for everything you have done for me!

Best Attorney Ever!
Jennifer is really amazing to work with. With great patience and compassion, she not only helped me through a very highly contested and stressful divorce... she helped me win sole custody of my kids. I could not have done it without her by my side! I highly recommend her to anyone needing a knowledgeable family law attorney who is not afraid of the courtroom.

Hire Ms. Wilson
Jennifer Wilson is a real life Wonder Woman! She fought hard to get me a seemingly impossible outcome in my case. I can never thank her enough for all of her hard work and determination in my case. She was an absolute beast in the courtroom. Very professional, informative and kind. Ms. Wilson was worth every penny. Crystal, Jessi, and Desiree were very professional and kind, as well. Trust me, you want these ladies on your side!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Where do I start!? I found Jennifer Wilson through a friend of mine, and she assured me that she was the absolute best... she was 100% correct. I came to them during a very difficult time, and needed someone I could trust to assist me in getting full custody of my child. From the first initial phone consultation, throughout every step, EVERY employee has gone above and beyond to make sure I was well informed, comfortable, and confident in their services. They are responsive and professional, and work very hard to take care of their clients. Everyone in the firm is knowledgeable, and friendly. You can tell that every employee is happy and taken care of by Mrs. Wilson, and it shows in their work. They are not money hungry, and truly care about their clients. Speaking of the costs, it is very reasonable considering all the work they do, and the QUALITY of work. I will never forget how well they’ve treated me, and even though I hope to never be in a situation where have to use an attorny again, I would only use Wilson’s and Associates if I did Thank you all again

Great Lawyer
I was in desperate need of an attorney for a serious unfair custody battle. I was referred Jennifer Wilson from an organization called Friends of the family. I couldn’t have been more blessed to have the chance of being connected with such a fighter! With Jennifer you can trust that she will do whatever she needs to make sure your voice is fully heard. I wish there was more attorneys like her. Highly recommend hiring her in any family law matter.

Absolutely Amazing
We used Jennifer to help guide us through the process of registering a foreign (out of state) custody order and to complete a termination/adoption suit. She has been absolutely amazing through the entire process. Jennifer will walk you through each step a nd answer all the questions you have. She helps ease any worries or fears you may have. I know that my fiancé and I can be impatient and worry-warts at times and she has by far exceeded any expectation we could ever have. Jennifer is extremely responsive and within appropriate time frames. If she knows that she isn't getting an answer to a question or something may take longer to get back- she lets you know up front. Our case has a few unique circumstances to it and she again- went above and beyond to help us on all aspects. I highly recommend hiring Jennifer as your legal representation.

Hired Jennifer Wilson for a Custody Case
I hired Jennifer Wilson as my my attorney to get joint custody of my kids, which I got. Jennifer was always prompt and thorough through the whole process. She was always quick to answer any and all questions through email and phone calls. I would definitely use her in the future if I ever need another attorney(fingers crossed I don't).

She does Insurance as well!!
Jennifer is not only a great attorney she is a great person as well. My home insurance didn't want to payout the correct amount on my roof on the documentation from their own adjuster and claimed that I was trying to take advantage of them!! They told me multiple times that my policy was different and just because their adjuster gave me conflicting information their policy is what ruled. Jennifer was able to get them to accept their mistake and make things right! Thanks Jennifer!

Absolute Best!
Anything involving the custody of your child, your most precious possession, is a scary and unsure road. Finding Jennifer Wilson and hiring her to be my attorney was THE best decision I could have made to help me navigate through this stressful time. Jennifer prepared and prepped more thoroughly than I could have even hoped an attorney would. She brought in evidence, knowledge, and confidence, which for my situation, were the exact things necessary to win our case. I was extremely nervous going into our hearing, and she put me at ease as much as I could be in the situation at hand. The way she carries herself and the ability she has to “roll with the punches” in the courtroom are fantastic. The entire hearing was solid due to her preparedness, but even if there was any doubt in the judge’s mind…her closing argument was 100% strong and really tied every single point together from the entirety of the trial. Thank you a million times over Jennifer! Any client would be doing themselves and their family a HUGE service by allowing her to represent them.

She is amazing!!
Jennifer M. Wilson Esq. is an OUTSTANDING and successful lawyer who is absolutely passionate about what she does. Having to deal with any legal matter is extremely stressful and taxing on a person. When my marriage came to its end, I did not know where to begin, I felt lost, stressed and worried about my joint assets, property, money and everything else associate with a divorce. Not to mention I was worried about moving on with my life and getting passed all of this. I did not want to spend time in court arguing or fighting with my husband. Jennifer handled my divorce last year (2016) and from the minute we had our consultation I felt relieved. Jennifer assured me she would answer all of my questions and handle everything I needed. She was very knowledgeable about my rights, divorce laws and how everything would proceed. She fully explained everything in detail to me so I would be kept in the loop and not be surprised by anything. She also explained possible outcomes that could happen. She made sure to get everything I requested in the divorced and look out for my best interest. Not only in the present time but in my future as well, since we were dealing with a family home. Jennifer was always accessible when I needed her to answer questions or just check in for a simple status update. She returned my phone calls, emails and texts promptly and always made sure I felt comfortable with everything taking place. I unquestionably praise her work and would recommend her to anyone needing legal assistance. In fact, I have. I recommended my mother to Jennifer last year when she was in a car accident. My mother used Jennifer to represent her car then and has recently retained Jennifer in a personal injury matter. Jennifer M. Wilson Esq. is an aggressive, hardworking, dedicated lawyer. With her on your side the opposing side does not stand a chance!

Excellent Lawyer
Highly satisfied with Jennifer Wilson's service. She was one of the first lawyer to arrive to court. She was well prepared with my case and explained to me about the process and procedures on what to do during a full trial which the Judge decided to do that day for everyone in court at the last minute. I over heard another lawyer saying that they did not even know the procedures of a full trial when it was announced. I was so glad it was Jennifer Wilson representing me and not someone else. I was so nervous and she calm me down and explain to me and prepared me to take the stand. I was very happy with the outcome of my case. I highly recommend her.
