Family Law Attorney

Jessica Mansbacher Kibbe

Jessica practices family law to be a steadfast guide through challenging times.

“I practice family law to be a source of strength for those who feel powerless.”

"A well-handled divorce makes a huge difference to the future of a family, and there is nothing more important than family."

When faced with the turmoil and uncertainty of divorce or child custody disputes many people find themselves in unfamiliar and emotionally-charged territory. This is where Jessica's remarkable sense of calm and focus comes into play.

Jessica brings more than decade of professional experience to her role as a family law attorney. She spent eight years managing a consumer product development business licensing intellectual property, and another eight years as Managing editor of a legal marketing firm. Her volunteer work with survivors of gender-based violence led her to the practice of family law, where she now focuses her advocacy efforts on helping her clients through the toughest times of their lives.

“My own parents divorced when I was very young; I understand the profound impact a divorce can have on every member of a family.”

Jessica’s breadth of experience enables her to be a source of strength and compassion for her clients. She is dedicated to providing a steady, reliable hand to those who need it most.

Jessica is a devoted mother of two rambunctious boys. Her multifaceted life experience, both personal and professional, have shaped her into a compassionate advocate who is deeply attuned to the human side of each case she handles.
