  • Jennifer Margarete Chapman

    Jill is a dedicated litigator and ace mentor. Picture Jill, as I saw her, arguing passionately in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on behalf of her client in a complicated appeal. After Jill stepped away from the podium, a pregnant silence filled the room until one of the judges broke it with a compliment on the record extolling Jill's oral argument. The audio is available on the Court's website, and the published opinion is favorable. Jill is a learned advisor and courtroom warrior for her clients. Few young attorneys are as lucky as I to learn from such a mentor.

    I worked with Jill for many years while at Latham & Watkins. She is as sharp as they come. Jill is a brilliant tactician, one of the best brief writers I've ever encountered, and very strong in the court room. An excellent advocate!
