JILL'S AREAS OF EXPERTISE
Being an effective lawyer is about experience with a particular subject matter. It's also about legal analysis capabilities; having a strategic mind for considering the facts and the law; and being sensible - and upstanding - about the fairness issues. It's about knowing what you don't know as much as what you know. As a litigator, it's about skills, confidence and preparation in the courtroom, the conference room and at the deposition. Jill has expertise as described throughout this website, as well as these more general - but crucial - skills.

Family disputes are some of the most difficult legal matters to attend to. Having a trusted advisor who can help you understand your options and likely outcomes is invaluable. Family law also often overlaps with other areas – domestic violence and child abuse on the criminal side and business and real estate disputes on the civil side. It makes a difference to have a litigator who has experience in those areas. Jill understands the issues and will be honest with you about them. If you're looking for an attorney who's reasonable in their approach to resolution, but willing and skilled to fight the fight in court - that’s Jill.
