A Local Friend You Can Count On

Ruth Jackson opened Jackson Family Law in 1996.  Since that time, Jackson Family Law has become one of the most respected family law firms in Kentucky.  

Ruth lives in Northern Kentucky with her husband Bob and two labs named Sadie and Sammy. Ruth has called Northern Kentucky home for over 30 years and believes it to be a great community  to raise a family and foster lasting friendships. 

Ruth and her husband have raised two successful adult children who graduated from the University of Kentucky and The Ohio State University.  The family enjoys rooting on both the University of Kentucky Basketball and Ohio State Football programs.

Working Hard For You

One of the most important initial factors to consider when choosing a family lawyer is to choose an attorney that you connect with, an attorney that takes an interest in you, an attorney that is experienced and knowledgeable in family law and with the local court system, and an attorney that is a good listener that hears your interests and needs.  

There are many attorneys that represent clients in family law situations. However, this is your life situation and it is important that you have confidence in the attorney that will be advising you and guiding you through this difficult, emotional time. 

Family law is not about the fight and it is not about the battle. It is about your attorney working hard for a resolution that is consistent with your concerns, interests, and needs.  As you get to know Ruth, you will quickly learn why she is so frequently trusted in this role by many Northern Kentucky residents. 

She is experienced, proactive in creating solutions for you, easy to talk to, responsive to your needs, and a good listener. Ruth enjoys connecting with and helping her clients.

Experience, Knowledge and Preparation on your Side

When looking for a Northern Kentucky divorce lawyer, it is difficult to know where to start.  Experience, knowledge and preparation are all important factors. Ruth excels in all three.

Ruth’s 24 years of experience have prepared her to handle all issues that may arise in your divorce related to such issues as property division, child support, child custody and financial security.  When a divorce is resolved correctly, it should provide family stability, financial security and a foundation for future conflict resolution. A divorce does not have to devastate your family.     

When dealing with the complexities of property division, Ruth’s experience is second to none.  Her prior experience in business and corporate law, along with her attention to detail, gives her experiences other lawyers just don’t have and provides advantages in dealing with complex property division issues.

A Leader In Collaborative Law & Collaborative Divorce

Ruth is the leader in Collaborative Law and Collaborative Divorce in Kentucky.  Ruth organized and established the first training in Collaborative Law for Kentucky lawyers in 2002.  The Collaborative Law Process has extended from Northern Kentucky to Louisville in 2005 and has since extended to Bowling Green.  

The Collaborative Law Process works outside of the traditional court system.  It follows your timeline for reaching resolution versus a court’s timeline. This means your divorce will not be dictated by the court’s calendar  and the judge’s availability to determine your future. You and your spouse control the timeline and you and your spouse control the resolutions for your future.  You can learn more about the process and whether it could be right for you here.
