After graduating high school in Great Falls, Jayme slowly traveled east, transferring colleges a few times, playing soccer and basketball along the way. Once she received a Bachelor’s Degree from Hamline University, in St. Paul, Minnesota, Jayme returned to Great Falls and worked for The State of Montana at Child and Family Services. This job ignited Jayme’s passion for working with families and conflict resolution. While attending The University of Montana School of Law, she interned at the Lewis and Clark and Broadwater County District Court and the law school’s Mediation Clinic.
Jayme has been an Associate Attorney at Wall, McLean, & Gallagher since August 2018. The firm’s supportive environment and commitment to an evolving practice allowed for Jayme to work on and finish her Masters in Social Work in the summer of 2019. While completing her Masters, Jayme was able to gain valuable experience with the University of Montana Law’s Indian Law Clinic; The Center for Children, Families, and Work Force Development; and Shodair Children’s Hospital here in Helena. With the strong belief that each case is unique, Jayme employs a holistic perspective and trauma informed law practice. Jayme is trained in Collaborative Family Law, a team approach to divorce and alternative to litigation. The client-centered method adopted by Jayme and the Wall, McLean & Gallagher, PLLC, team recognizes the importance of communication in mitigating the stressful situations clients are faced with.
Jayme enjoys traveling, skiing, hiking, and lake trips with family and her dog “Diggs.” She recently became a board member for Prevent Child Abuse Montana. Jayme also works part-time as a therapist at Shodiar Children’s Hospital as she is a Candidate to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
