Jaclyn J. Robertson specializes in divorce and family law matters. A former prosecutor, licensed in both California and Utah, she is a skilled and experienced advocate.

During her years as a prosecutor with the Salt Lake County District Attorney’s office, Jaclyn mastered the intricacies of the courtroom and litigation. She handled hundreds of cases from initial screening through to jury trial verdicts. As a prosecutor, she spent years on the domestic violence team, and was also appointed as the special victims prosecutor for the juvenile team. The complexities and interpersonal demands she successfully handled in these cases serve her clients well in her family law practice.

Since leaving the District Attorney’s office, Jaclyn has focused her practice almost exclusively on divorce and family law matters.

Q. I have to go to court for temporary relief?? Not sure what for or what to expect?
A: Hi. Happy to help, but first need a little more information. I'm assuming this is for a pending divorce action. If so, you should have received a Motion for Temporary Relief as well as other supporting documents. That Motion will outline the relief being sought.

We have a video that explains Temporary Orders found here:


Hope that helps. If you'd like more information pertaining to your specific situation please feel free to contact Marie at my office and schedule a consultation. 385-770-7453
