Jennifer’s years of experience as a former senior trial attorney for insurance companies have been a tremendous asset in helping her attain the best possible results for her clients.

She was also selected to be an attorney for a specialized fraud unit that focused on defending insurance policy holders against fraudulent insurance claims.

She has successfully defended clients in hundreds of jury trials, bench trials, motions, pre-trial and probation hearings, and appellate briefs. Jennifer also has experience handling high profile domestic violence cases, orders of protection, and immigration issues in the context of criminal cases.

Jennifer has appeared on local TV stations as a legal consultant. In addition to her years of experience in the courtroom, she has continued to sharpen her trial skills by attending several regional seminars at the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College.

Jennifer is a graduate of Suffolk Law School in Boston, MA where she volunteered at the Student Urban Remedy Foundation, Shelter Legal Services Foundation, and Boston Partners in Education.

Community involvement is very important to Jennifer. She has enjoyed coaching University of Washington Law students, and Roosevelt High School students in mock trial and appellate court competitions. She has also been a member of the Washington Bar Association’s Disciplinary Advisory Roundtable Committee. Currently, she is a member of the parent board at her children’s daycare.

When not practicing law, Jennifer loves spending time with her family. She and her husband have the great fortune of three amazing children—one year-old fraternal twins and a four year-old son. Motherhood has brought a depth and richness to life that enhances the way Jennifer practices law.
