Attorney Miguel has years of experience in the practice of law.  Before, opening her own offices, she was a partner at Casey and Thompson, P.C. for more than ten years. By establishing Miguel Law Offices, she brings to clients a fresh, unparalleled team oriented approach to the practice of law. 

Jennifer Smith Miguel is regarded as an outstanding litigator and advocate for her clients.  She brings to the practice her own personal divorce experience.  She too has gone through the steps of separation and divorce and thereby not only offers unique understanding and empathy to her clients (which many other attorneys cannot) but also the knowledge and experience as a practicing divorce attorney.

Attorney Miguel created an environment different than most law offices. She is genuinely interested in seeking justice for her clients, offers competitive fees and rates, and is honest and devoted to each client. 

By concentrating her practice to family law, including divorce, custody, child support, alimony, domestic violence case and  employment law, Ms. Miguel is able to stay current with the changes in the law and able to utilize her superior negotiation and advocacy skills. Clients and peers have commented on her ability to anticipate the needs of her clients. She has a proven track record of success and has earned the respect of judges, peers and clients alike.

Ms. Miguel is a mother of two young children. Born and raised in Attleboro, lived for a period of time in Fall River and New Hampshire and now is proud to call Somerset her home town.
