D’Erra Jackson

D’Erra is our family law attorney. She has several years of experience handling family law cases, including divorce, child custody, child support, and adoption cases. She also prepares wills and handles estate matters, as she has a lot of past experience with estate administration.

Before joining our firm D’Erra was in her own practice representing clients in Southern Maryland. She also served with several legal aid organizations, where she developed the skill of cultivating positive relationships with clients to counsel them through difficult emotional issues. 

Before going to law school, D’Erra was a paralegal working with wills and estates. She knows the estate administration process very well, and works with Dave Gormley in our wills and estates department.
