"I find satisfaction in helping individuals and families through the complexities of the law in the areas of bankruptcy, estate planning, Medicaid, and probate."

Before becoming an attorney, Jessica worked 10 years as a legal assistant at Cunningham Dalman. During that time, she found her niche in relating to clients’ personal needs.

Her wide range of experience over the years also allows her to efficiently assist clients in several other legal areas such as secured creditor rights, collection, foreclosures, landlord-tenant disputes, quiet title actions, construction liens, land contracts, tax appeals, and general litigation cases.
