Jordan S. Miceli Associate
Jordan Miceli handles a wide range of family law matters, with a focus on complex divorce litigation, pre-and post-nuptial agreements, and child custody and support disputes, particularly for high-net-worth clients. She is passionate about the intersection of familial relationships and the law, and she understands the great emotional burden that many carry during family-related legal processes. This empathetic perspective, coupled with Jordan’s formidable and effective advocacy skills, allows clients to feel well-supported during their life-changing family transitions. Jordan earned her undergraduate degree in international affairs with minors in history and women’s studies from the University of Georgia where she graduated cum laude. She earned her law degree from the Washington and Lee University School of Law where she also graduated cum laude and served as the Managing Online Editor of the Washington and Lee Law Review.
During law school, Jordan was published in the W&L Law Review Online with a note titled, “The Haunting of Her House: How Virginia Law Punishes Women Who Become Mothers Through Rape,” which examines termination of parental rights in Virginia and advocates for a more appropriate evidentiary standard in these unique civil proceedings. The publication of this note led to the lobbying for and introduction of House Bill 359in the Virginia General Assembly by Delegate Vivian E. Watts in January 2022 to address this critical issue.
The bill will be heard by the House of Delegates Courts of Justice Committee in early 2023. Before first joining Boyd Collar Nolen Tuggle & Roddenbery as a summer associate during law school, Jordan was a legal intern with the Atlanta Legal Aid Society in the Fulton County Domestic Relations Unit, where she gained experience representing clients in divorces, protective orders and domestic violence matters. She also served as a judicial extern for Judge Charles N. Dorsey on the Roanoke County Circuit Court in Salem, Virginia, where she assisted with many civil and criminal matters, most notably helping Judge Dorsey draft an opinion in a complex divorce case.
Originally from Texas, Jordan now resides in Buckhead and is an avid walker, reality TV fan, skillful skier and enthusiastic aunt to many of her friends’ dogs.
