Prior to going into the private practice of law, Jennifer served as a law clerk, then staff attorney, to the Honorable John H.

Jennifer assisted in adjudicating issues arising during the trust and estate administration process, including breach of fiduciary duty claims, disputes related to creditors or beneficiaries of an estate, and construction of wills and trust instruments.
Jennifer currently assists clients with all matters arising in the Wills, Trusts & Estates practice area. As an estate planner, Jennifer works with clients to plan for estates of all sizes, based on each client’s unique goals and circumstances. Jennifer also advises trustees and personal representatives charged with administering trusts or estates about their fiduciary obligations and the administration process. Drawing on both her Wills, Trusts & Estates and Litigation backgrounds, Jennifer also handles litigation related to trusts and estates, such as breach of fiduciary duty claims, will or trust contest actions, undue influence claims, and cases to interpret the provisions of wills and trusts.
As a litigator, Jennifer works on a broad variety of matters. Jennifer’s litigation background is primarily rooted in disputes arising in the business context, such as breach of contract claims, claims related to covenants not to compete or solicit, tortious interference with contract or expectancy claims, business conspiracy claims, and misappropriation of trade secret claims. Jennifer also works on litigation relating to real estate and construction matters, including easement disputes, disputes related to documents governing property owners, and disputes among contractors or between contractors and their clients.
