Clients assisted by paralegal Jackie Gholston quickly realize how special she is. Fun-loving, kind, and thoughtful, Jackie is a ray of sunshine to everyone here at Stewart Law Group. She thrives on helping others and it really shows in every task she takes on. Her terrific sense of humor can be just what the doctor ordered.
Jackie has lived in Arizona since 1988, but her roots are in the Lone Star State. She attended the University of Texas at Tyler, majoring in Political Science, and the American Institute of Technology here in Phoenix, majoring in Paralegal Studies.
With more than 25 years’ experience in divorce, family law, and criminal law practice, Jackie has earned kudos from attorneys and clients alike. Invaluable in facilitating each case, she is knowledgeable, innovative, and diligent. Always searching for solutions, always giving her best.
Jackie credits her parents for instilling in her a strong sense of responsibility. Jackie’s many talents greatly enhance her ability to help others and being a paralegal allows her to do just that each and every day. This is her calling. The legal path to assisting families and individuals is one she joyfully shares with her husband (he’s been a social worker for over two decades).
Since age 13, Jackie has been the choir director at her church with multiple services each week. Music ministry is a family tradition with both husband and son joining to lead the church in song. Jackie’s favorites are “God Will Take Care Of You,” “Great Is Thy Faithfulness,” and “I Made It” – they encourage her to never give up and to always have faith, no matter how tough things get.
Jackie’s favorite cuisine is seafood with scallops, shrimp, and catfish topping the list. She does a lot of cooking at church events and family gatherings. The food may run out, but never the love.
In her quiet time, Jackie enjoys reading inspirational fiction. She’s a big Dallas Cowboys fan (God blessed Texas!) and watches pro-basketball, too. Her favorite movie? Jerry Maguire, hands down.
For Jackie, the best vacation destination has a sandy beach on the ocean. She’s splashed across the Hawaiian black sands of Kona Beach (Big Island), California’s Coronado Beach (San Diego), Mexico’s Rocky Point (Puerto Peñasco, Sea of Cortez), and visited the coastlines of Florida and Seattle. Her journey has just begun, though, with plenty of seashore yet to walk.
