Known as “J.A.” by her friends, Jessica was born and raised in Georgia, spent her youth in Pike County and graduated from Spalding High in Griffin, Georgia. Jessica always knew she wanted to be an attorney so she could fight to help people obtain justice in times of crisis.
After graduating from the University of Michigan in 2009, Jessica began working as a legal assistant for Tim Edwards & Associates, P.S., a family law firm in Auburn, Washington. This opportunity allowed her to gain valuable legal experience prior to and while attending law school. Through daily contacts with clients, she learned first-hand how difficult divorce and custody cases are for them and decided she wanted to practice in family law. After graduating from Seattle University School of Law in 2014, she returned to her home state and was admitted to the Georgia Bar that same year.
Jessica has spent the last four years focusing on family law exclusively and enjoys practicing in her hometown circuit and surrounding small towns.
Jessica enjoys spending time with family and friends, watching Michigan sports, Braves baseball, and Falcons football, as well as going hiking and on other adventures with her chocolate Lab, Henry “Hank” Thoreau.
