Simply Amazing
Jami and her team are simply amazing! They have worked with me through some extremely stressful, emotional and frustrating issues and have never once not been able to keep me calm and focused. Jami is simply amazing at what she does. Her passion for what she does for her clients comes from a place in her heart unlike any other attorney I've worked with. She is real, honest, extremely knowledgeable and never once has she misguided me or had me pay for services when she truly felt it was not worthwhile to spend the money. Her honesty, tact and intellect are unlike any other Family Law Attorney I know. I've recommended her several times and every time I have those I've referred have thanked me for connecting me with her because she has done an absolutely amazing job for each and every one of them. If you are in the unfortunate circumstance to need Jami's services you should absolutely, without a doubt consult with Jami and you'll see quickly how truly amazing she is. She will always work hard to obtain the most positive outcome possible based on each and every circumstance. What sets Jami apart from other attorneys is that she treats each case as if it were truly her own personal case and that's what makes her as talented and successful as she is. Don't take it from me though, go consult with her if you need Family Law Services and you will see for yourself her passion and knowledge is second to none.

Outstanding, Professional, Friendly Service!
Jami Cornish was my saving grace. I am so grateful to have found her to help walk me through a very difficult time in my life. Her professionalism and knowledge of the law had me impressed every step of the way. She was so easy to get along with and always made herself available to communicate or meet in person. She is always in the moment and gives you her full attention, never rushing you or making any matter feel unimportant. Her entire staff at the office is friendly and helpful. They all work so hard with eachother to make everything as efficient as possible. I HIGHLY recommend Jami Cornish. She is quick, smart and funny and way on top of her game!

Wealth of knowledge and care!
I can’t say enough good things about Jami. Her professionalism and experience in family matters is top notch. She is passionate about helping and genuinely cares for families. Her heart goes out to those hurting and will give you the shirt off her back to help. Jami represented me back in 2018 and I highly recommend her. An incredible human and incredible lawyer.

Simply the Best
Mrs Cornish represented me in a very high conflict child custody case for my now five year old autistic son.. I can honestly say, without a doubt, that I have my son today because of Ms Cornish' excellent representation of the my case. Her tenacity in the courtroom is unmatched, in addition to her vast knowledge and resources related to family law gave me the confidence and the hope I was so desperately needing to keep my head up.through this difficult time. She was professional, sincere, trustworthy and very client service-focused during my very difficult and complex case. I would highly recommend Jami Cornish  to anyone needing family law representation in the Phoenix area.

One of the best attorney!!
It has been over 10 yrs since Jami helped me when my family was falling apart, she fought for every thing I deserve and of course, won! She has been a light to my family till today. Infact, my son who was 6yrs old then, decided to follow her footsteps and is currently studying law at ASU. Jami, I have been searching to find for years, I am glad to find you online. I will visit you soon!

Beyond Grateful!
The quality of service that Jami Cornish provided was unbelievable, to say the least. She was there for me through some of the hardest times I ever had to face in my life, but she was a wonderful support and was there for me whenever I needed her - Day or night. She is an incredible attorney, as well as a wonderful person, and I have been nothing short of impressed with how she handled all of the complexities of my case. Her professionalism and ethics are second to none. She fought for me and my children and helped us get our lives back. I cannot count how many times I have thanked her or her legal team, but it is not enough. I would and have recommended her to everyone.

Best attorney I've ever worked with
I've had the unfortunate opportunity to work with several attorney's over the last couple years and Jami and her team are by far the BEST I've ever worked with. I think the main things that set them apart is they take such good care of their clients and make them feel like their case is the most important one their working on. I highly recommend her to all my friends that may need her services.

I and my family will forever be regretful for the giant impact that Jami had in our lives.She handled our very challenging child custody /child kidnapping case like the super star that she is. Jami new our case inside out ,she was always available ,she kept us informed , she is effective ,she is a professional that is willing to go to battle for your case as if this was her personal life matter. I can not come up with words to express the phenomenal impression that she left on our lives. Jami was honest ,aggressive,brave and also knew what tools to use in every step of my very challenging case. Thank you so much Jami for every thing you have done for us .I wish you well with your careerand your life in general .We will never be able to pay you back for every thing you did. Emiliano

Awesome lawyer!
I found Jaime Cornish to be a superb family attorney. She knows the law and did very well at presenting my case. I would use her again in a heart beat. She was also very caring and truly showed interest in my case and I can't say that for most attorney's.

Fantastic Lawyer
I used Jami Cornish in a recent battle with my ex husband over vacation time. From the first email to consultation to the hearing Jami and her staff were extremely supportive and helpful. I felt that they were personally invested in my case and I wasn't just another client. They shared my disbelief and upset at some of the things my ex pulled, while still being professional. They were sympathetic to issues, and laid out all the options in moving forward. Response times were very quick - regardless of the hour - and very thorough. Cost and rates are reasonable and she worked with me when the cost of my case became much more than planned (all on the ex). I highly recommend this attorney to anyone having to go through legal issues with ex spouses. A great lawyer and also a very sympathetic ear.

Family Law Attorney
Excellent, excellent, excellent experience with Ms. Cornish and her team. I felt that I was represented confidently and effectively throughout the divorce proceedings as well as through the order of protection issues. Jami as well as Betsy Jo and the receptionists answered my emails and phone calls within 24 hours, usually within minutes of my initial request. I had previously been through 2 years of legal battles without settling the divorce. Jami and her team literally had the divorce finalized and in the court system, done, over within 2 months. Excellent, excellent, excellent!!
