    Jennifer is a recognized authority on labor and employment law in Washington State. She speaks frequently on employment issues and is a national leader in the American Bar Association. Jennifer has more energy than any attorney I know, is a fierce advocate for her allies and a formidable force on the other side of the table. Jennifer is respected throughout the Washington State Bar Association for her tireless volunteer efforts. I would never hesitate to recommend Jennifer as an excellent employment and labor attorney

  • Daniel M Lear

    I have gotten to know Jennifer through a number of connections in the legal community. I can tell from (1) my direct interactions with her, (2) the lawyers whom we mutually know who think very highly of her, and (3) the legal groups to which she belongs and the leadership and conviction that she brings to those groups that Jennifer is top notch. Not only do I have no hesitation endorsing her, I'd say unequivocally , if you need help in any arena and Jennifer is available: hire Jennifer. Period.
