About Jillian

Learn Jillian’s areas of practice.

Jillian is one of the founding members and a lead attorney at State 48 Law Firm. She is a former social worker who is a thorough and strong litigator, and passionate about being a true advocate for her clients when they feel they may not have a voice. She enjoys complex cases where she can use her creative side to develop unique solutions for clients in particular situations. Her clients value her great communication and her demeanor in court.

While at ASU, Jillian interned with the Department of Child Safety for four years and accepted a full-time position with DCS upon graduation. It was through her position at DCS that she realized her passion for the law. Soon thereafter, Jillian decided to attend law school at Louisiana State University and experience life in the South. During her time in law school, she interned at a pro bono family law firm, worked at the Office of Public Defense in the juvenile defense section, and gave legal aid to sexual assault victims as a student attorney.

After graduation from LSU, Jillian decided to move her legal talents back to Arizona where she jumped into family law and has never looked back.

Professional, thorough and talented.
I took on Jillian to handle the paperwork process of my uncontested divorce and I can’t say enough about the experience. Divorce is one of the most difficult thing I’ve encountered in life and to have an advocate to help with the process of legal paperwork with simplicity and efficiency was a real blessing. Life deals you things you don’t always anticipate and to have a helpful hand is greatly appreciated. Thanks Jillian!

Jillian & Best Law Firm
Jillian is amazing in every way. She is patient, very detailed and gives an honest answer. She was very knowledgeable in my case and did represent me in one of the court hearings. Any issue or question I have has always been answered. I am super grateful to Jillian because I feel like I have someone by my side 100% of the time. I started with a consult with David and Stephen in 2018 and there have been many changes to my case. Jillian took over for David completely after I had some changes in my financial situation. Jillian has always been just as amazing as David. The most recent court hearing I had was this year in February. It went from having 50/50 parenting to my ex moving and wanting to unreasonably relocate my daughter with him. I called Best Law, gave them a quick note and a call back number. Not even an hour later Jillian called me back to get as much information as she could on this new update. She walked me through the steps on how to take this on and gave me options. Either way my ex and I would have to go to court to resolve this. I took the route of representing myself in court this time. Even though I took this option Jillian and the team were behind me rooting for me, giving me tips, and taking the time to explain things I did not understand. The meeting, phone conversations, and email correspondences I had with Jillian before the court date were detailed and she gave me a lot of pointers and told me what proper terms to use in court. I was able to provide my evidence and statement in court before the judge. The judge ordered me as the custodial parent. (Remember each case is different and outcomes vary!) I cannot thank Jillian enough for how much she helped me prepare for the court hearing. It is completely nerve wrecking to stand before a judge when you have no experience representing yourself. Jillian gave me such reassurance! To this day I have Jillian, and the firm on speed dial. I will be using them for the years to come as my situation seems to change constantly. I referring anyone who may be in the similar situation as me to them. I am forever grateful to have come across such caring people and law firm.

The best attorney I've come across
This is the 3rd attorney firm I have hired. The 1st one was too expensive. The 2nd one had no skill. This firm is amazing. The invoice is fair and they don't nickle and dime you; in other words, they don't pad the account. They are fighting tooth and nail and work diligently to conserve funds.
