Experience & Education

Before joining Price Benowitz to launch and manage their D.C. family law practice, Jeannine was a staff and then senior staff attorney at the Legal Aid Society of D.C. in their Domestic Violence and Family Law Unit for over eight years where she represented hundreds of women (and a few men) in civil protection order cases often involving trailing criminal prosecutions against the abuser and occasionally against the survivor who fought back. Jeannine has also handled complex custody cases involving physical and sexual child abuse, expert witnesses, guardians ad litem, and child witnesses. While the majority of Jeannine’s experience is in family law litigation, she has also successfully defended two clients in civil protection order and custody cases, respectively, in the D.C. Court of Appeals.

Jeannine received her B.A. in 1997, summa cum laude, in Spanish from the Florida State University, where she received the Dorothy Hoffman Award for Most Outstanding Student in Spanish and was elected to Phi Kappa Phi and Sigma Delta Pi (National Spanish Honor Society). She received her J.D. in 2007, magna cum laude, from the University of the District of Columbia, David A. Clarke School of Law, previously the Antioch School of Law. In law school, Jeannine served as Senior Editor of the UDC Law Review and received two merit scholarships, including a Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Scholarship. Upon graduation, she was recognized with the Dean’s Fellow Award (top 10% of graduating class) and a Clinical Legal Education Association Outstanding Student Award.

Case Approach

Jeannine’s experience working for and getting to know judges in the Family Court has given her incredible insight into how each judge makes decisions such as how to award marital property to one spouse or another in a divorce, whether domestic violence would shift the presumption of joint custody, and what custodial arrangement is in “the best interest of the child.” Jeannine is passionate about translating her insight and experience to benefit her clients.
