From the time she began practicing law in 1995 and throughout her legal career, Jeanne has focused on family law. Following a clerkship with the late Hon. Richard S. (Stan) Gault in the Superior Court of Forsyth County, Georgia, Jeanne quickly established herself as an effective advocate and litigator in private practice in the complex field of family law. She took a hiatus from practice beginning in 2009 so that she could stay home with her four children. On July 1, 2016, she returned to the active practice of law to work exclusively as a guardian ad litem for children in family law cases in Forsyth County.
Jeanne’s own life experience provides valuable insight into her success in her legal and personal endeavors. She grew up in a small town west of Chicago called DeKalb, Illinois. After graduating valedictorian of her public high school class, she went on to major in English and French at the University of Iowa. Jeanne then enrolled at the Marshall-Wythe School of Law at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. Jeanne excelled in law school, participating in a prestigious moot court competition dealing with International Law. She was also a student assistant to Professor Neal Devins, a constitutional law scholar.
In the mid-1990s, Jeanne was one of only a handful of women actively practicing in the area of family law in the North Georgia area. She litigated numerous domestic cases involving complex issues, including international custody and adoption, hotly-contested substantial-asset divorce cases, and many other types of family law cases. In addition to representing parties in domestic cases, Jeanne served as guardian ad litem in both Superior Court domestic relations cases and Juvenile Court deprivation cases. She earned a reputation as an effective, pragmatic, and thoroughly-prepared advocate on behalf of her clients.
Jeanne is currently accepting Court-appointed as well as private guardian ad litem work in Forsyth County family law cases. Please contact our office at 678.739.0050 to set up an appointment.
