When a major change like divorce brings legal trouble to your doorstep, the outcome can influence the rest of your life—for better or for worse.

O’Connor Family Law will treat your legal issue with the gravity it deserves, delivering assertive representation, one-on-one detailed service, and extensive knowledge based on years of experience in the field of family law.
Jolee VacchiAssociate Attorney
Attorney Jolee Vacchi is one of our dually licensed attorneys who represents the lucky clients who are assigned to her in both Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Attorney Vacchi prides herself on being a trusted resource and zealous advocate for her clients, as she has always viewed the law as a helping profession and feels extremely rewarded by assisting people in their times of crisis.
Don’t be fooled by how nice she seems. Although Attorney Vacchi is one of the sweetest and most compassionate people you’ll ever meet, she is a pit-bull in the courtroom when she is fighting for justice. She is articulate, straightforward, and easy to talk to. She is a first-class advocate both in negotiations and in the courtroom.
Attorney Vacchi understands how upsetting the divorce process can be and how terrifying the thought of potentially losing time or custody of your children can be. Because of this, her main goal is to provide clarity, tranquility, and direction for you in your case so that you can move forward and live a future you deserve.
Having graduated magna cum laude from Stonehill College with a Bachelors in U.S. History and Criminology in 2009, Attorney Vacchi always knew the next step for her would be law school. She graduated magna cum laude from Roger Williams University Law School in 2012, and shortly after was admitted to both the Massachusetts and Rhode Island Bars to practice law. Since then she has delved deep into the world of law, and of legal education, spending the last 7 years working alongside her alma mater to help prepare the next generation of lawyers.
When she is not helping clients, Jolee is still working to make the world a better place by volunteering at the Rhode Island SPCA, as well as making time to still be an avid traveler and hiker. Her adventures include the company of her husband Chris and their two young children, Jillian and Flynn. She is also a Zumba and yoga enthusiast, as well as a big Patriots fan!
