“I work tirelessly for my clients. My experience and tenacity have produced desired outcomes for decades, and I am dedicated to staying on the cutting edge within the family law field in order to better assist my clients with their legal matters and help them achieve favorable results.”
Jacqueline started her legal career working as a law clerk for the late Harold R. Kemp in law school. Harold would also come to serve as her mentor for more than 15 years.

The work was fast-paced, rewarding and made a real difference in people’s lives.
Today, as a full-time Family Law attorney with over two decades of experience, Jacqueline truly knows that few things are more rewarding than working with families in need and tirelessly helping them reach their desired outcomes.
That sense of purpose drives her to be well-prepared for every case, putting in whatever time is necessary to reach her clients’ goals. This extends well beyond individual cases. Jacqueline works relentlessly to stay current on Family Law matters. By being active in professional organizations at the local, state and national level, she is also in touch with cutting-edge technology and contacts within the field, which often prove beneficial in achieving favorable results.
