Ms. Wood is a fine practitioner who handles "business divorce" work for closely-held businesses. She also is a mentor for many less-experienced attorneys and law students whose advice has been invaluable during difficult economic times to these individuals.

Jessica was very recently one of the presenters as part of a one hour CLE on Life/Work Balance I organized. Jessica is smart and engaging. She was most helpful in shaping the presentation. Her "15 minutes of fame" during the CLE demonstrated her energy and commitment to her personal and legal development. The attendees got insight into what it takes to excel at life and as a lawyer.

In addition to knowing Jessica through professional organizations and mutual friends, I also have been her client. Jessica was the primary attorney advising and guiding my partner and me through the legal and practical issues involved in withdrawing from and dissolving our former firm and establishing our new firm. Her assistance was instrumental in a smooth transition for us and our former partners.

Jessica is one of the most professional ethical lawyers I know. She is not only an excellent counselor but a mentor to many younger lawyers and very active in many bar associations. She bridges the diversity gap and makes it her mission to help others to achieve and be the best they can be.
