associate | portland | LICENSED IN Oregon

"I take the time to fully and adequately understand our clients' goals and needs and tailor my advocacy to best serve those objectives."

A personal approach can make a difference

Jessica brings a client-focused approach to her advocacy. She believes that addressing the “who” before addressing the what, when, where, and why is an important piece to effective representation because it allows the decision-maker to better understand the client’s position.

Prior to joining the firm, Jessica served as a court-certified law clerk for Liberty Mutual Insurance through the Law Offices of Kathryn Reynolds Morton. During her time at Liberty, Jessica conducted and defended depositions, assisted in preparing for trials in state and federal courts, presented oral argument on dispositive motions, and represented clients in arbitration. Jessica also served as a judicial extern to the Honorable Michael H. Simon at the United States District Court of Oregon, where she prepared draft opinions on a variety of civil matters and had the opportunity to evaluate the effectiveness of a variety of advocacy approaches and strategies.

In her spare time, Jessica enjoys hiking, running, reading memoirs, and exploring local vineyards. Jessica also devotes a portion of her time to mentoring youth.
