Jennifer Wolgamott has a heart for the hurting. Prior to practicing estate planning law, she spent her career serving those less fortunate, mostly children in need, working as an advocate for the voiceless. Driven by this passion to serve, she pursued law school at night and now applies the same sensitivity, care and concern serving her estate planning clients in both the Tavares and Orlando offices.
Jennifer holds her J.D. from Florida A & M University College of Law and her B.A. in Christian Counseling from The Baptist College of Florida in Graceville, Florida. While in law school, she pursued two legal internships focused on social work, Homelessness and Legal Advocacy Clinic and Guardian Ad Litem Clinic. Professional skills courses included contract drafting and interviewing, counseling and negotiation.
Her past experience includes serving as a case manager for the Children’s Home Society where she worked to rehabilitate parents whose children had been removed due to abuse or neglect. She drafted judicial review reports to update the court on progress made by families. Work as a social service caseworker for the Houston County Department of Human Resources in Dothan Alabama, included more work with children in volatile family situations in need of intervention by the state.
Currently she volunteers at the Christian Care Center, a ministry of the First Baptist Church Leesburg, where her husband serves as worship pastor. She works with the homeless, children in crisis and victims of domestic violence, including providing pro bono legal services.
Jennifer and her husband live in Leesburg and are a family of seven, including the newest addition, a 1-year-old foster son.
