Peoria divorce attorney Jessica America has handled cases in a number of different areas, but when she started developing a family law practice, she realized she had found her calling.
“For me, helping people in the midst of their most difficult times is extremely rewarding,” Ms. America said. “When I realized how much I enjoyed assisting families navigate through the law, both statutory and case law, and provide them an understanding of how courts typically apply the law to their issues, I knew I found my purpose.”
Divorce is long and arduous. Ms. America does not sugarcoat anything about the process, but she does give her clients her word that they will have a fierce advocate in their corner fighting for their rights.
“Perseverance is not a long race,” she said. “It is many short races one after the other. The same applies to family law litigation. In every case, I encourage my clients that they are not alone in this race.”
Ms. America stresses the importance of patience and persistence when going through divorce and child custody issues. Although nothing about the process is easy, she reassures her clients that they will survive and can thrive after divorce if they stay focused on what matters.
“Most cases aren’t slam dunks, and perseverance is critical,” she said. “I am dedicated to seeing every client all the way to the finish line. Together, we will persevere. Together, we will finish the race.”
Prior to joining Cordell & Cordell, Ms. America practiced domestic relations, personal injury and insurance defense litigation including trucking and motor carrier liability, vehicle accident, premises liability, governmental liability, product liability, and insurance bad faith, bankruptcy law, probate, and estate planning.

Immigration attorney serving the San Diego and Houston area with Guerra & Associates Law Group, P.C. Our firm has over 15 years of experience practicing immigration law. Call now for a consulation at 619-272-7018. Podemos asistir con su caso de inmigracion.
I am the daughter of two immigrants. From a very young age, I had a keen sense of justice and wanted to help others, always defending the underdog! My interest in immigration law stemmed from my own family experiences and my interest in helping others achieve the ability to work and live lawfully in the United States. A native Californian, I have spent most of my practice in this state and have successfully represented many individuals in obtaining lawful status.
In 2001, my law practice primarily focused on family law (divorces, custody, child and spousal support, domestic-violence restraining orders, adoptions, etc.) and probate (probating of wills, conservatorships and guardianships). As the years passed in my family-law practice, I started to realize that I was spending more time dividing my client's debts than dividing my client's assets. To make matters worse, divorce caused my clients to go deeper into debt and financial crisis. Feeling the outcry for financial help, in 2003, I started dividing my time and energy between family/probate law and learning as much as I could about debt and money-management matters--the good, the bad and the ugly as I call it. For instance, I learned that a vast majority of my many clients, friends, neighbors and acquaintenances, in their mid-40s (to include attorneys, doctors, professors), had no savings, little or no retirement and lots of debt. (This was before the real-estate market crashed!)
Then, as providence would have it, I started expanding my educational base to include training and education in mortgage-related issues, insurance-related issues and retirement-related issues. (I also received my insurance license about 2007; and, am currently a candidate to become a Certified Financial Planner). The point is this: I realized through the study and research of multiple disciplines (legal, financial, insurance) that there many factors that need to be looked in order to best serve my clients and prospective clients during this scary financial time. Some factors that are important to consider include marital status, family status, age, health, income, job security, amount of debt, spending habits, short and long-term goals, and so on. So, if you are looking to file bankruptcy or settle your debt with your creditors, modify your home loan or foreclose on your home and your marriage is also at risk, these and many other factors need to be considered before taking the next step. Failing to properly "diagnose" your financial situation can have consequences that you didn't expect, e.g., having to deal with a deficiency judgment post foreclosure that you didn't expect to get from your lender(s).
So, since 2003 I have not stopped--I have now expanded my legal practice to include debt settlement advocacy (an alternative to bankruptcy), mortgage-related advocacy and education and assistance (e.g., loan modification, short sales, foreclosures, deed-in-lieu of, etc.)
What makes me unique is that my overlapping areas of law benefit my clients--as I undertand the interwoven intricacies of how divorces, trusts, probate, bankruptcy, consumer debt can (and somtimes do) affect one another. For instance, depending on the stage a person is in connection with their divorce can affect the outcome of their bankrutpcy. So, timing is sometimes a key issue that needs to be addressed before proceeding with bankruptcy and/or mortgage-related issues, such as loan modification, foreclosure, etc.

Mary Lynn Anna Tedesco Esq
A native of New Jersey, I have been working with immigrants since 2006 as a volunteer with AYUDA, Inc. in Washington, DC. I am passionate about my work, and truly enjoy each individual that I have the pleasure to serve. I specialize in matters where criminal law and immigration law intersect, and have secured wins in difficult cases for detained and nondetained individuals, including complex legal eligibility arguments. I am well-versed in all matters of immigration, including family-, employment-, and investment-based matters, removal defense, naturalization (including for individuals with a criminal history), as well as waivers and consular matters. I have presented with the American Immigration Lawyers Association on matters pertaining to removal defense.
When I am not working on behalf of my clients, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our dog. I am also a professional vocalist on staff with St. Patrick's Cathedral in Dilworth, Charlotte, NC, and spend time contributing to our community and congregation.
