Wijdan Jreisat

Wijdan Jreisat thrives on bringing people together and creating relationships. It is surprising, then, that much of her work finds her advising people on moving apart in business and personal settings. She handles clients’ family law and employment law needs. As such, she advises clients in the most important relationships in their lives.

What distinguishes Wijdan to her clients is her ability to serve as a counselor, zealous advocate (or devil’s advocate) and warm-hearted friend throughout what is often a highly stressful process. Wijdan skillfully navigates the balance between sympathy and reality, providing equal doses of both to her clients, while aggressively defending and advancing their interests in various domestic proceedings.

She also serves as an advisor to employers in handling their relations with employees. So, whether hiring, disciplining or firing, Wijdan assists in setting the tone for that employer’s relationships with its employees.

Wijdan also serves as an elected member of the firm’s Board of Directors and a member of the firm’s strategic planning and recruiting committees.
