Tamra Lett

Tamra is an attorney serving families in the San Diego area with divorce, child custody and visitation, paternity, asset and property division, and other family law issues.

Tamra is an Associate Attorney and practices exclusively family law with JWB Family Law. After passing the bar, Tamra began her legal career working as an Americorps Fellowship Attorney litigating elder abuse cases, consumer fraud, and real estate fraud in Los Angeles. She then moved to San Diego and joined the Legal Aid Society, where she represented individuals appealing denials of Social Security benefits at judicial hearings and tenants facing eviction trials.

Tamra utilizes her experience with emergency and high-conflict cases to help families navigate difficult situations. Her understanding of interfamilial relationships also comes from her own blended-family background, as she is not only adopted, but was raised with her mother, stepfather, and her two step-siblings.

In her spare time, Tamra enjoys travel, paddleboarding, networking, and participating in community events such as beach cleanups and food distribution. She shares a home in Imperial Beach with her partner, his two young sons, and their rescue dog and cats.

What Our Clients Are Saying

“Can’t imagine too many people enjoying having to engage a family law group but when needed you can’t afford to settle for anything but the best. Jessica, Jane’s associate attorney, continues to prove to be what every client should be looking for—responsive, respectful, understanding, and compassionate while never losing site of tenaciously and aggressively pursuing her client’s objectives. A single dad, fighting all the usual uphill battles, Jessica has never let me down. Diligently fighting and more importantly winning! Over the last couple years, Jessica has been monumental in successfully pursuing my custody objectives. I can’t thank her enough. She has an amazing mentor in Jane, the two of them are certainly a champion team.”

The Importance of the CFLS Designation

A Certified Family Law Specialist, or CFLS, is an attorney who has obtained certification in the standards of California family law and demonstrated optimal legal competence. Attorneys who obtain this certification have specific expertise in all aspects of family law, which includes divorce or the dissolution of marriagechild and spousal support, child custody, and temporary restraining orders, among other areas of emphasis.

Not every attorney practicing family law has obtained this certification. In fact, the designation remains relatively rare—there are fewer than 2,000 CFLS attorneys in California and fewer than 200 in San Diego.
