Jillian helps family law clients during some of their most challenging life experiences with sensitivity and foresight, using a no-nonsense approach when advising on the reality of each situation.

Jillian has proven herself skilled both in and out of the courtroom. She is organized, has great attention to detail, and ensures she maintains effective communication with her clients as she navigates them through their legal complexities.

Recognized for her commitment to social justice early on, she was the recipient of the David M. Jones Award, which is awarded to a law student whose character has been a source of inspiration and optimism to their classmates and to the law school community. Jillian’s infectious smile and genuine desire to help ensures that she develops a quick and easy rapport with her clients.  Jillian recognizes that each client is unique and has different priorities, and she strives to find the optimal resolution for each client.
