Jaime Wallace practices exclusively in the area of family law, which includes handling a wide range of divorce cases, post-divorce matters, preparation of marital agreements, paternity matters, and custody cases.
Jaime supports her clients in remaining realistic throughout what is often a traumatic and life-altering experience in their lives. She wants her clients to be left with the knowledge and belief that their interests are intelligently and vigorously represented to get them the best possible results. She also wants her clients to understand the process that they are in and be informed enough to make their choices in that process.
Jaime prides herself on always maintaining a professional manner and on past accomplishments in the courtroom.
Jaime joined Icard Merrill in 1985 as an associate, and has been a shareholder since 2006. Prior to joining the firm, she worked as a law clerk to Florida Supreme Court Justice James C. Adkins.
