About Us

Law Office of Jacalyn F. Barnett, P.C.

The Law Office of Jacalyn F. Barnett, P.C. is uniquely qualified to address all stages and phases of love and what it means legally.

All relationships have risks. If you or someone you care about is in a relationship. he or she needs to understand its legal consequences.

When written in Chinese the word “crisis” consists of two characters – danger and opportunity. Jacalyn F. Barnett is devoted to choosing to make each crisis an opportunity to do things the right way, even if you had never previously imagined it that way. Divorce can be an exception to the rule that life rarely gives you a second (much less a third or fourth) chance.

Applying this positive approach to solving relationship issues, whether by settlement or litigation, she creatively counsels clients from diverse professions and industries as to how best to negotiate and/or litigate the issues requiring resolution.

Successful people take chances in love, in business, in all areas of life and the greatest opportunities come from what they learned.

- Jacalyn F. Barnett, Esq.

The only people who have never made a mistake in their life are people who don’t take chances.

- Jacalyn F. Barnett, Esq.

The best way to solve a problem is to defeat the problem, not the other person.

- Jacalyn F. Barnett, Esq.

Bad things happen to everyone, how you choose to respond makes all the difference in the outcome.

Our Difference


We carefully design short and long-term plans suited to your unique situation.


Because “determined” is not good enough.


We examine issues to provide proactive solutions rather than a cookie cutter approach to problems.


Because being ready leads to success.


Because all calls and emails are answered promptly.


Unlike a large office, you know who is working for you.

During our first meeting, Jackie was brutally honest and made me face some harsh truths. The culmination was me getting custody back, and much, much more in addition. I trusted Jackie wholly, scrupulously followed her advice and in exchange she set things right. As a former client and current colleague, I cannot think of a better matrimonial attorney.

  • - Daniel A.

Whether in depositions or cross examination, Jackie was a master in the court of law. Having a judge decide your financial future is nerve wracking to say the least. Thanks to Jackie's expertise, my divorce's resolution exceeded my wildest imagination. I initially walked into her office fearful. Two years later I felt fearless!

  • - J.G.

Jackie tells it to you straight in her inimitable staccato style and doesn't sugarcoat anything and that's what you want and need. You also need an individual who is dedicated, responsive and available. Over the course of eighteen months there was never one unanswered phone call or one email not promptly answered.

  • - K.W.

Looking back now, the thought of going through this life changing experience without Jaci is unthinkable. She was tough when she needed to be, but always fair, and always thoughtful. Jaci helped me keep my eye on the prize– the health and happiness of our children –and that was everything.

  • - Matt B.

Jaci has gone and continues to go above and beyond -available day and night, weekends and vacations- she is attuned to every detail, a creative thinker, respectful, thoughtful and a fierce advocate.

  • - A.S.

Jacalyn Barnett has the three “C”s – competence, compassion and chutzpah. I am a practicing attorney but was not prepared to advocate or negotiate for myself, my family and finances through the emotional landmines of a divorce. Jacalyn supported me through the process with her experience, knowledge of the law and responsiveness.

  • - Lauren C.

Jacalyn Barnett is a tireless, fierce and brilliant advocate. Jackie’s attention to detail and strategy is extraordinary.
