“I decided to practice Family Law because I understand how difficult and stressful these situations can get.
Whether it is a divorce, a child custody dispute, or an adoption, the process can be very challenging.
I work closely with my clients and provide guidance and support to get them through the legal details as smoothly as possible.”
Prior to becoming an Associate Attorney with the Beal Law Firm in 2021, Jessica gained years of extensive experience as a Legal Assistant.
