Jennifer is an experienced associate in the firm's Casualty Department, where she handles all areas of general liability litigation. She has experience in a wide range of matters including personal injury, premises liability, retail liability, and automobile liability. These cases range from slip and falls to property damage to motor vehicle accidents to construction defects. Jennifer has brought cases to successful resolution through trial, mediation and motion practice.  

Throughout her career, Jennifer has emphasized the importance of working closely with her clients to develop successful case strategies and effective litigation plans. Jennifer also prides herself on her ability to develop good working relationships with her adversaries which ultimately benefit her clients and lead to greater success in the cases she handles.

 Before joining the firm in 2015, Jennifer's practice was concentrated in professional liability insurance coverage with a focus on errors and omissions coverage for securities broker/dealers and registered representatives. In this role, Jennifer also assisted in the drafting of insurance policies.

Jennifer graduated from American University in Washington, DC in 2006, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Communications and a minor in Business Administration. In 2010, Jennifer graduated cum laude from Pace Law School where she received her juris doctor degree.  At Pace, Jennifer served as president of the American Constitution Society, participated in Moot Court and volunteered with the Unemployment Action Center.

Actively involved in the community, Jennifer volunteers her time with the United Way of Westchester and Putnam's Emerging Leaders Alliance.
