Jacquelyn is a top-rated attorney focusing her practice exclusively in family law. She represents fathers and mothers, husbands and wives, grandparents, and other stakeholders in family law cases.
Jacquelyn is motivated to practice in the area of family law by her own childhood. As the daughter of divorced parents, she has personal experience with the struggles that exist when co-parenting and blending families. As a mother of three children herself, she has an intimate understanding of what is at stake for each client. Jacquelyn is dedicated to counseling her clients through the deeply personal - and often complex - issues involved in family practice. She is solution-focused rather than problem-oriented and works closely with her clients to develop creative resolutions that fit their unique family situation. Jacquelyn has been selected as Rising Star by SuperLawyers since 2019.
Outside the Courtroom, Jacquelyn is an adjunct professor at the University of Minnesota School of Law and a volunteer attorney ethics investigator for Minnesota's 19th bar district. She is a passionate advocate for breastfeeding education and has been presenting Continuing Legal Education seminars aimed at the family law bar and judicial bench since 2018. She strongly believes that attorneys and judicial officers should understand the science and practical realities of breastfeeding in order to make informed decisions about families that choose to breastfeed. Jacquelyn also works to boost the accessibility of courthouses for breastfeeding attorneys and other courthouse guests.
In her free time, Jacquelyn enjoys the arts, attending as many musicals and live concerts as she can fit in her schedule. She is a member of See Change Treble Choir, which performs during the Winter/Spring season. She lives in Apple Valley with her spouse and three children.
