A No-Nonsense Advocate

Jessica prides herself in her ability to connect with clients, a trait that she considers imperative in asbestos litigation.

“Clients suffering from an asbestos-related disease are often living the most difficult part of their lives,” she said. “It’s important they know that I’m here for them in every way possible, that they can call me with any questions or concerns, and that they can rest easy knowing that I’m working on a positive outcome for them.”

Jessica thrives in the fast-paced world of asbestos litigation and realizes the important of tailoring her approach to a case based on each client’s unique situation.

When she’s not working, Jessica enjoys spending time friends and family, including her dog, Luna.
