Jolee Vacchi


Certified Mediator, Collaboratively-Trained Attorney, and fierce litigator with a depth of knowledge of the divorce and custody laws in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts – Attorney Jolee Vacchi is an incredible advocate to have in your corner.

She successfully helps many of our clients achieve their primary goals by leveraging her talents for negotiation and tenacity in and out of the courtroom. Her strength and compassion serve as a bulwark against the uncertainty divorce and custody cases often bring. Attorney Vacchi makes it a goal to provide each of her clients with education, stability, and a clear direction; she is a reliable shield behind which her clients find first-rate guidance out of the current struggles they face to allow them to start to dream about the opportunities the future holds for them.

Attorney Vacchi sees how important it is to ensure that children have a healthy and safe relationship with both of their parents. She often fights against manipulative, controlling, or narcissistic ex-partners who see “winning” the child as a way to hurt the other parent rather than due to a desire to co-parent. Fighting for or against the relocation of a child to another state due to a parent’s impending move is another area where Attorney Vacchi has significant experience.

In addition, Jolee expertly handles cases involving high-net-worth and asset divorce, high-conflict custody matters often involving domestic violence, personality disorders, or substance abuse, guardianship of minors, prenuptial and postnuptial agreement drafting, as well as contempt actions.

Attorney Vacchi’s experience and training in family law not only serves her clients incredibly well but have become invaluable to the remainder of our firm’s legal team as she is a team leader and provides insight, direction, and support to ensure that the legal strategy and representation provided by her team is just as great as what she would personally provide.

Attorney Vacchi graduated magna cum laude from Roger Williams University School of Law where she then spent several years working to help prepare the next generation of up-and-coming lawyers. She is dually licensed to practice law in both Massachusetts and Rhode Island. She is a certified mediator, a trained and certified collaborative law attorney, and a leader in the family law arena.

When Jolee started at O’Connor Family Law, she was asked about her dreams outside of work. Her response was to one day own a farm. As a testament to any of her clients who have ideas for their future but do not know how to take that first step, Jolee has taken action to make her vision a reality, and you can check out and purchase her hand-crafted items from the homestead farm that she has started at

When she is not helping clients, Attorney Vacchi can be found on her homestead caring for her mixed flock of chickens, ducks, and Nigerian Dwarf goats in the company of her husband and two children.

Attorney Vacchi is based out of our Westborough office in Worcester County, but also regularly practices in Middlesex County, Norfolk County, Bristol County, Hampden County, Essex County, and Suffolk County. She is also licensed in Rhode Island and regularly practices in Providence County, Kent County, Washington County, and Newport County.
