Jeannette has vast experience in all aspects of family law, concentrating her practice in divorce, Allocation of Parental Responsibilities and Parenting Time (formerly custody); child and spousal support; division of assets; parentage (paternity); negotiation of settlement agreements; and preparation of Pre-and Post-Marital Agreements.

As your attorney, she will offer personalized attention, guidance, emotional support, and common sense solutions to your unique circumstances. Extensively trained in alternative dispute resolution including mediation and collaborative law (and an advocate of the cutting edge "cooperative" model), she is a staunch believer in resolving matters peaceably and reasonably, whenever possible. The shared goals of preserving dignity while minimizing both expenses and acrimony are met by working with both spouses and both attorneys together to craft solutions that are beneficial to both sides.

Ms. Zissis is equally skilled in handling contested and high-conflict cases. With 30 years of litigation experience, she will vigorously and masterfully champion for your rights in the courtroom.



Statistically, one of the most agonizing and stressful events in life. Anger, fear, grief, financial concerns, distrust, uncertainty about the future, questions about today... at a time when emotions are in turmoil, complicated and life altering decisions must be made.
