About Jessica Sue Sisk
Our general practice has successfully represented clients throughout East Tennessee. Whether we're defending and protecting your constitutional rights as a person criminally accused, or aiding you in modifying and rebuilding your family unit during a divorce or custody battle, we strive to obtain the best results for you. When you decide to walk through the doors of our office, you are going through some of if not the most difficult and emotionally draining times of your life. The stress of litigation is not exclusive to our individual client, but extends to his or her spouse, children, extended family and friends. Therefore, we make every effort to resolve your case as efficiently and swiftly as possible. Our clients truly get the best of both worlds. With our extensive training in alternative dispute resolution, we can settle your case through mediation and settlement conferences if those methods are best suited for your case. However, if your matter calls for aggressive trial advocacy in the form of a jury or bench trial, we utilize our award-winning litigation skills in zealously representing your interests. If you or someone you know is facing a legal battle, we would welcome the opportunity to serve you. The quality of our services stands out in your first interaction with our office. For a fee of $75.00, you can consult with us regarding the facts, potential disposition options, and the steps you need to take for the stage and posture of your case. These consultations are usually between 30 minutes-1 and 1/2 hours depending on the complexity of your matter. In addition to face-to-face appointments, we also offer consultations via phone and video chat. Late appointments are available, and walk-ins are welcome. Payment Plans may be available in some cases. If you need legal representation, we are here for you.
