We have experience in Family Court, Probate Court and Criminal Court, in every sort of matter.
The city of Boca Raton may look like paradise with its beautiful beaches, golf courses and parks, but many of the residents of Boca Raton are dealing with serious court matters. Between 2008 and 2018, there was over 3 million filings in Civil Family Court in Palm Beach County, with almost 14,000 in the past year. With such a large amount of people needing help in circumstances such as child support, time sharing (formerly referred to as custody), and domestic violence, Attorney Jessica Mishali is well equipped to represent your interests in any and all of these matters. A resident of Boca Raton herself, and a mother of two children, she treats each client with compassion, and helps them navigate through the difficult situations ahead. Jessica knows that this can be a trying time, not only for the child(ren), but also for the parents, and she wishes to make the transition as seamless as possible to avoid damaging relationships.
Cases involving residents of Boca Raton are predominantly assigned to the South County Courthouse, in Delray Beach, Florida. Whether you have a Family case (e.g., Divorce, Modification, Step-parent Adoption, need for Prenuptial/Postnuptial), a Probate or Probate Litigation case, or are in need of Estate Planning, you need an experienced attorney to guide you and represent your interests.
Attorney Jessica Mishali is well versed in mediation and strives to assist each client in achieving their goals without having to go to court. Mediation is a useful and economical alternative to a Judge’s ruling and is required in most Family cases. This can help to prevent the relationship between parents becoming increasingly hostile, as well as limit stress and confusion to the child(ren). Mediation brings both parties and their counsels together to reach an agreement that both parties are satisfied with, of their own free will. Jessica’s years as a Public Defender, handling thousands of cases to resolution, honed her negotiation skills and she is able to strike deals in cases where other lawyers have failed.
However, not every client is able to resolve his or her case with mediation. Jessica has extensive trial and courtroom experience and never shies away from trial. In a recent Step-Parent adoption case, we represented residents of Boca Raton, where an uninvolved parent refused to consent to the adoption. Attorneys Jessica Mishali and Stephen J. Press were able to prove that the objecting parent had abandoned the child and the adoption was granted. The clients were thrilled.
