Peoria divorce attorney Jessica AmericaPeoria divorce attorney Jessica America has handled cases in a number of different areas, but when she started developing a family law practice, she realized she had found her calling.

“For me, helping people in the midst of their most difficult times is extremely rewarding,” Ms. America said. “When I realized how much I enjoyed assisting families navigate through the law, both statutory and case law, and provide them an understanding of how courts typically apply the law to their issues, I knew I found my purpose.”

"​I am so glad that I have found Cordell & Cordell for my representation. They have exceeded my expectations. I am more than satisfied with the services that I have received.​"

​"I have already been surprised by the level of knowledge and dedication my attorney has had on my case so there is nothing I can imagine that would improve the service. I would like to take this opportunity to commend my attorney Jessica America on the treatment of my case. I feel extremely confident in entering my final trial with what she has accomplished to date. Based on everything I have witnessed throughout this case, I have no doubt that the outcome would have been very grim for myself if I had someone else leading my case. I want to personally thank the firm and my attorney for your assistance and guidance throughout this entire process."


​"Jessica was simply awesome and I would like to use her again if the need should arise. She preps very well and is good with strategy. I prefer working with female attorneys that are mothers themselves- very pleasurable to speak with but also aggressive in court where they need to be. Your seminars and resources on the web are great too! Carry on your great work for dads!"
