Meet jackie combs, family law attorney

TODAY, WE ARE ABSOLUTELY THRILLED TO INTRODUCE OUR INCREDIBLE GUEST, JACQUELINE COMBS BARRY. JACKIE IS A FORMER CORPORATE COUNSEL FOR BOTH PRIVATE AND PUBLICLY TRADED COMPANIES, BRINGING A WEALTH OF LEGAL KNOWLEDGE TO OUR CONVERSATION.

THROUGHOUT HER CAREER, JACKIE HAS PROVIDED EXPERT ADVICE TO HER CLIENTS ON A WIDE RANGE OF LEGAL ISSUES, INCLUDING CORPORATE CONTRACTS, MERGERS AND ACQUISITIONS, DUE DILIGENCE AND INTEGRATION, FINANCIAL AND INSURANCE MATTERS, REGULATORY COMPLIANCE, AND BUSINESS RISK ASSESSMENT. HOWEVER, HER JOURNEY HAS TAKEN AN INTERESTING TURN, AND THESE DAYS, SHE EXCLUSIVELY PRACTICES FAMILY LAW.

DRAWING UPON HER PRIOR EXPERIENCES AS A CORPORATE COUNSEL, JACKIE HAS SEAMLESSLY INTEGRATED HER KNOWLEDGE INTO THE INTRICACIES INVOLVED IN RESOLVING ALL ASPECTS OF FAMILY LAW DISPUTES. THIS INCLUDES HANDLING HIGH ASSET AND HIGH-INCOME DISSOLUTION CASES, PREMARITAL AND POSTNUPTIAL AGREEMENTS, AND HIGH-CONFLICT CUSTODY BATTLES.

IN THIS EPISODE, WE ARE PARTICULARLY EXCITED TO EXPLORE THE CONCEPT OF BEING LEGALLY HEALTHY. WHILE WE OFTEN HEAR ABOUT FINANCIAL HEALTH AND SETTING OURSELVES UP FOR SUCCESS, ESPECIALLY AS INDEPENDENT-MINDED WOMEN, THERE SEEMS TO BE A LACK OF COMPREHENSIVE UNDERSTANDING REGARDING WHAT IT TRULY MEANS FROM A LEGAL PERSPECTIVE. WE WANT TO DELVE INTO THIS TOPIC, STARTING FROM THE TEENAGE YEARS AND EXTENDING INTO YOUNG ADULTHOOD, AS YOUNG WOMEN BUILD THEIR LIVES.

JOIN US AS WE UNRAVEL THE MYSTERIES AND SHED LIGHT ON THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING LEGALLY HEALTHY. IT’S TIME TO EMPOWER OURSELVES WITH KNOWLEDGE AND TAKE CHARGE OF OUR LEGAL WELL-BEING. LET’S GET STARTED!

DISCLAIMER: WHILE JACKIE IS A LAWYER BY TRADE, THIS EPISODE IS OFFERED PURELY AS ANECDOTAL PERSPECTIVE AND SHOULD NOT BE CONSTRUED AS LEGAL ADVICE.
