Jessica primarily assists individuals with criminal and family law needs, and is committed to equipping her clients with the information they need to successfully navigate the legal system.
She represented her first client on an unemployment case during her very first internship and has been hooked on the experience ever since.
Since then, she has expanded her area of focus to include traffic offenses, divorce, federal criminal defense, and more.
Whatever the legal issue, Jessica is passionate about working with and advocating for her clients to ensure a positive outcome.
Originally from Norfolk, Jessica relocated to Richmond in 2014, where she attended law school at the University of Richmond. During law school, Jessica spent her summers working in legal aid and public defender offices and graduated with a Pro Bono Certification.
