Jayanna, affectionately known as Jay, possesses a unique journey that has shaped her into a dedicated and compassionate legal professional. Originally hailing from Long Branch, New Jersey, Jay made a significant move to North Carolina in 2007, embarking on a path of educational and professional growth.

Jay’s introduction to the legal field began during her time at Harding University High School, where her interest in Criminal Justice was ignited during her senior year. Her passion for the legal world continued to flourish as she pursued higher education at Central Piedmont Community College, where she studied Paralegal Technology.

Jay’s professional journey reached new heights when she assumed the role of Paralegal and Office Manager at McKnight Law Firm. Her expertise and unwavering dedication in this role allowed her to excel in assisting clients facing complex legal challenges.

In 2020, Jay experienced a transformative life event when she became the proud mother of twins, expanding her family to include four daughters. This significant change in her life drew her toward the field of Family Law. Jay found deep fulfillment in helping clients who genuinely care about the best interests of their children, and her empathy and dedication is evident in every aspect of her work.

Beyond her legal work, Jay cherishes spending quality time with her husband, Joe, their four daughters, and their Rottweiler, Duke. She is also an avid reader with a profound love for literature, often immersing herself in the latest books to further expand her knowledge and understanding of the world.
