About Jennifer Jackson
Before becoming a family lawyer in 1985, Jennifer Jackson was an illustrator and photographer, raising three children. Blending this background of creativity, caring and flexibility with her legal training enhances her practice of family law and expands the options for her clients.
Jennifer believes that a lawyer must be actively involved in her professional community, and that life is about making a difference. Jennifer is one of the founders of Kids' Turn, a program for separating families begun in San Francisco which has expanded exponentially in size and in quality of service to children and families. She is one of the founders of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals and served for eight years as co-editor of its journal, The Collaborative Review. She has had leadership roles in her professional organizations at local, state national and international levels, and is a past president of the Northern California chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.
Jennifer has been given an "AV" rating by Martindale-Hubbell and in 2010 was named one of the top 100 lawyers in all fields of practice in Northern California by Law and Politics Publications ("Super Lawyers). Jennifer has also been selected by Super Lawyers as one of the top 50 female lawyers in Northern California in all areas of practice for the past six years in a row.
Jennifer practices alternative dispute resolution exclusively; she has trained extensively in mediation and collaboration, and is committed to keeping clients out of court and at the negotiating table.
