  • Raymond Everett Sean Bishop

    Ms. Jorgensen represented an airline in a case brought by my paraplegic client against several multinational airlines, product manufacturers, and a governmental entity. She was pleasant and professional during the discovery process, and was a very effective strategist for her client in federal court. Her representation was vigilant; she even made herself available by cell phone when out of the office. I endorse this attorney.
