Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

For nearly 20 years, Jennifer has successfully represented hundreds of people who have been injured through no fault of their own; people who were often just in the wrong place at the wrong time but suffered significant or catastrophic injuries as a result. Jennifer is in the unique position to provide excellent and informed representation to her clients and to maximize recovery for her clients, as a result of her years working as counsel for several of the country’s major insurance carriers.

Now, Jennifer helps injured individuals navigate the insurance claims and court system, thus enabling them to keep their focus on their recovery. Jennifer advises clients on what to watch out for from the outset of their claim, and she also strives to give practical and grounded counsel, advising as to when settlement makes senses versus when litigation is necessary. Jennifer has litigated personal injury matters in all the Courts of Northern Virginia, as well as the District of Columbia Superior Court and the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia and has settled cases by negotiation and medication.

In addition to her proven skills as a personal injury litigator, Jennifer has also developed legal experience in other practice areas, having litigated matters of family law in both levels of court in Virginia, as well as successfully negotiating resolution to contentious matters of divorce, support and child custody. Now, by joining forces with Christie Leary, Jennifer has further expanded her practice to include criminal defense, traffic matters and school disciplinary matters. The thing that matters most is helping people navigate tough times with skill and sensitivity, and with a robust practice in these areas, Jennifer looks forward to new legal challenges each day.
