Jennifer Hargrave is committed to helping families find creative solutions to complex family law problems.  While divorce can be a time of escalating conflict, it doesn’t have to be when both parties are focused on finding solutions making decisions for the future, instead of hanging on to old wounds.  Divorce is hard enough – having a compassionate mediator focused on problem solving can help you avoid the unnecessary heart ache of escalating legal fees, protracted litigation, and years of mounting resentment.  Jennifer is Board Certified in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, is a certified family law mediator, and is the owner of Hargrave Family Law, a boutique family law firm located in Dallas, Texas.  She lives in Dallas with her husband and three children.

I'm passionate about helping families thrive, even through divorce. I have been in private practice for 20 years. After years of working with couples and watching those who chose divorce find the process to be both personally and financially devastating, I decided to get certified as a mediator. I am also passionate about this work after my own experience of divorce. My goal for all of my clients experiencing divorce is to lower conflict, create working solutions, keep you out of court where possible, and keep your costs low. I can help with custody arrangements, co-parenting issues, child support, communication struggles, and any other concerns that arise. I am friendly and compassionate (I have been there!), but also direct and solution-focused. I see clients online, as well as in my office in Irvine/Newport Beach.

I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Washington then returned to UW School of Law to earn my LLLT certification. I’ve been licensed as a Limited License Legal Technician since 2017. I’ve lived in the Seattle area for over two decades and raised my sons here. I understand firsthand the challenges of divorce and single parenting. In addition to being licensed as a legal technician, I completed training in collaborative law, basic mediation, and advanced family law mediation including practicum hours. I’m passionate about alternative dispute resolution and guiding my clients to a respectful resolution. It’s always less costly to reach an agreement than to litigate an issue. Going to court takes both an emotional and financial toll on everyone. I encourage clients to seek mediation and look for creative solutions to the outcome in their family law situation. When not practicing family law, I enjoy travel, Mariner baseball, walking with my two golden retrievers and keeping up my garden (or at least trying!). I also volunteer with the Arthritis Foundation.

I'm passionate about helping families thrive, even through divorce. I have been in private practice for 20 years. After years of working with couples and watching those who chose divorce find the process to be both personally and financially devastating, I decided to get certified as a mediator. I am also passionate about this work after my own experience of divorce. My goal for all of my clients experiencing divorce is to lower conflict, create working solutions, keep you out of court where possible, and keep your costs low. I can help with custody arrangements, co-parenting issues, child support, communication struggles, and any other concerns that arise. I am friendly and compassionate (I have been there!), but also direct and solution-focused. I see clients online, as well as in my office in Irvine/Newport Beach.
