Biography

Attorney Jennifer V. Abrams is a 20 year veteran in the practice of divorce law. It is not uncommon for the opposing party to simultaneously retain more than one attorney to litigate against her. Attorney Abrams also routinely represents fellow attorneys or their spouses. Her credentials include:

Certified Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML). Ms. Abrams is one of only sixteen Las Vegas attorneys that have been accepted into this elite national association.

Board Certified by the State Bar of Nevada as a Family Law Specialist.

Executive Council of the State Bar of Nevada, Family Law Section. She was elected to this post for 5 years by her fellow family law attorneys and the Nevada Family Court Judges.

Appointed by and honored by the Justices of the Supreme Court of Nevada. This was for her work on revising the procedures for NRCP 16.1, 16.2, 16.205 and the Financial Disclosure Forms. These procedures and forms are used by attorneys in every divorce case in the State of Nevada.

Currently on the committee rewriting Section Five (Family Court) of the Eighth Judicial District Court Rules.

Honored by the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada as the 2020 Attorney of the Year.

Ms. Abrams is admitted to practice law in three states, but chooses to practice exclusively as a divorce attorney in Las Vegas. Jennifer Abrams is regarded as both a skilled negotiator and a forceful litigator. As such, she has gained the respect of her colleagues and judges in the Clark County Family Courts.
