Prior to relocating my practice to the north side in the summer of 2018, I worked with a well-respected south side firm from 2014-2018. There, I learned from the best in my area of specialty/areas of interest. Our current practice focus includes Estate Planning, Estate and Trust Administration-- including litigation components, and Guardianships.

I am a member of the Indianapolis Bar Association, Indiana State Bar Association, and the Estate Planning Council.

I attended IU McKinney School of Law from 2010 to 2013 as a non-traditional evening student. While attending law school in the evenings, I worked two jobs; one as a legal intern at the Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys Council and the other as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist at IU Health North Hospital. In December 2013 I completed my training/law school education and earned my JD as well as my specialty certification in Health Law. I co-authored Behavioral Contracts, in John Hopkins University’s publication, Biology in 2014.

Prior to attending law school, I worked as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist. I worked in the immunohematology refence laboratory at the Indiana Blood Center and the blood bank at St. Vincent Hospital. I published my first nationally recognized abstract, Serological and Clinical Management of a Bombay Pregnancy, in the American Association of Blood Banks publication Transfusion in 2005. In 2009, I presented Autoantibody in a Post-Transplant Setting, a scientific poster at the regional level at the St. Vincent Hospital Research Symposium.

I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Science at Indiana State University and my Associates in Arts and Associates in Arts and Science degrees at Lincoln Trail College.

Wonderful Experience!!!!!
Jessica is so knowledgeable and personable. She explains things in ways we could easily understand and made us feel comfortable the entire time while making big life decisions. I've worked with other attorneys who made me feel I couldn't ask questions because the clock was ticking. Jessica is patient and kind in addition to being professional and on top of things. I highly recommend her to anyone!

Excellent real estate attorney!
We chose Jessica as our real estate attorney for a private home purchase and would highly recommend her services! Jessica was prompt, respectful and knowledgeable in helping us obtain our dream home. I felt as though we had an experienced real estate attorney in our corner helping us navigate the negotiations between the seller and ourselves. Thank you Jessica!
