For most of her career, Jennifer has been in private practice, where she is able to dedicate the necessary time, resources and attention to detail to give each client’s case the scrutiny, insight, analysis and zealous advocacy that is often crucial to understanding the uniqueness of each situation and case and litigating with a triumphant outcome.
