Jacqueline Keenan works with complex family law matters including divorce, domestic violence, child custody and support, spousal support, and equitable distribution. 

A graduate of Washington and Lee University School of Law and former intern for Judge Michael H. Sholley in the 17th Judicial District Court of Pennsylvania, Jacqueline believes that representing clients in family law matters is incredibly important work. 

"As a family law attorney, it's critical to always remember that the work we do today for our clients will impact their lives well into the future. That means our attention to detail, creativity, and commitment to our clients' goals must always be at the forefront during our work together." - Jacqueline Keenan 

Prior to joining Ellis Family Law, Jacqueline worked for the Community Legal Practice Center at Washington and Lee where she represented low income individuals and families in a wide range of family law matters.
