Ayalah R. Jesselson, Esq.

Attorney at Law

After graduating from law school in 2005, I quickly learned that I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. I got my start working in family and divorce law and now, after more than 15 years of practicing law, I've helped many families and couples work through a variety of difficult legal issues. I am a certified divorce mediator and have extensive knowledge and experience in matters such as equitable distribution, child custody, support, post-judgment matters, and pre- and post-nuptial agreements. I bring personal understanding and sensitivity to each of my cases and truly understand what a client is going through financially, emotionally and otherwise. This gives me the ability to approach each case with practicality and efficiency.

More About Me


Divorce is a wildly unpredictable process. You can't always control the "why," but you can control the "how." There are many instances where both parties in a divorce want to act with their own best interest in mind, and that rarely results in a quick conclusion. As an experienced divorce attorney, I've witnessed many clients who think they are faced with a seemingly "ugly" divorce — only to end up getting through the process in a mature, organized, and fair fashion because of my advice and guidance.

It's not a matter of who you are divorcing, but rather a matter of remembering why you called an attorney in the first place — to ensure that your divorce is as painless and as stress-free as possible. My goal is to make sure my clients achieve a satisfactory outcome so they can move on with living their lives.
