Grace Jamra Featured in Women Leaders in Law

Grace Jamra was featured in the 2013 Los Angeles Time's "Women Leaders in Law" special feature.  

From the article:
After working exclusively in the area of family law for approximately 20 years, Grace Jamra decided to open her own firm in early 2011, establishing an innovative family law practice designed to cost-effectively address the specific needs of each client.
On starting her own firm, Ms. Jamra stated, “I wanted to be more available to a wider array of clients and provide excellent legal services in a cost-effective fashion.”
With her background in economics and finance and her expertise in child custody matters and her reputation as a tenacious litigator, Ms. Jamra handles all aspects of family law matters, including complex dissolution proceedings involving custody, support, division of assets, including business valuations and post-judgment matters. In every case, Ms. Jamra always seeks an amicable resolution before resorting to litigation. “I try to convince my client and the other side to do what is necessary to exchange information voluntarily, avoid court intervention, if at all possible, and try to resolve matters amicably. If not, then court intervention is always an option.”
Jamra is AV Preeminent rated by Martindale-Hubbell and has been named by her peers in Southern California Super Lawyers since 2003. She has also been recognized as one of the “Top 50 Women Attorneys in Southern California” by Super Lawyers since 2011. In 2008, her alma mater Whittier Law School awarded her its “Attorney of the Year” Alumni Award.
Ms. Jamra regularly speaks and writes on legal strategies and family law, and is a current Chair for the Family Law Executive Committee of the Beverly Hills Bar Association. She also serves on a number of charities, including organizations that strive to protect children’s rights.
