Anderson & Boback Promote Jessica Marshall to Partner

Categorized as A & B News

Anderson & Boback is pleased to announce the promotion of Jessica C. Marshall to Partner. Marshall began with the Chicago family law firm in 2010 as an associate attorney.

Marshall is a dedicated, intelligent, hard-working, and honest attorney with impressive credentials and substantial achievements in the legal community. She focuses her practice on divorce and family law. From child custody to military divorce, she is a passionate advocate with an unwavering commitment to her clients.

Respected by colleagues, judges and clients, she has received numerous awards, including the ISBA Young Lawyer of the Year for Cook County (2017-2018). This prestigious award honors the extraordinary commitment and dedication of a young lawyer who has provided outstanding service to the Illinois population. Only two lawyers are chosen to receive this honor each year. The ISBA recognized Marshall for her important role “mentoring other associates and staff focusing on the importance of civility in the practice of law” and participation in the ISBA Standing Committee on Women in the Law.

Marshall has also been recognized by the following: American Institute of Family Law Attorneys – 10 Best Client Satisfaction Award (2018); Rising Star in Family Law, Illinois, by Super Lawyers (2018); The National Advocates Top 40 Under 40 (2016); and the Avvo Client’s Choice Award (2014). She is also the Catalyst Co-editor for 2018-2019.

Marshall is committed to helping people and solving their problems through skillful application of the law. Her achievements include helping parents reunite with children, protecting children from abusive situations, and offering in-depth knowledge of military divorce laws and regulations by winning an appeal on the original improper division of a military pension.

Marshall was admitted to the Illinois State Bar in 2010 and the United States Court of Appeals, Federal Circuit, in 2011. She is a member of the Illinois State Bar Association, and the Illinois Bar Association Women and the Law Committee. She has held the following positions on Women and the Law Committee: Co-Editor, The Catalyst 2014-2015 and 2017-2018, Social and Gifts Sub-Committee Co-Chair 2015-2016, Social and Gifts Sub-Committee Member 2014-2015 and 2016-2017, and We Will (Women Supporting Women in Local Legislation) Core Member.

Marshall received her JD in 2010 from The John Marshall Law School. A 2007 graduate of Indiana University, she earned her Bachelor of Science in Public Affairs and Legal Studies. She also participated in an Oxford University summer program through Indiana University.

“We are very fortunate to have had Jessica Marshall join our team in 2010. Jessica is instrumental in our growth and to our vision of being one of the biggest small law firms practicing in the area of family law in Chicago.” says Janice Boback.

Founded in 2004, Anderson & Boback is devoted to the practice of family law and specializes in adoptions, divorce (both civil and military), post-decree actions, child support (in and out of state), visitation, custody, paternity, and prenuptial agreements. Their attorneys are recognized for their skillful negotiation and strategic litigation, and have helped hundreds of Chicago parents with their custody and visitation issues.
