About Fenja

Learn Fenja’s areas of practice.

I am a thrill seeker who enjoys the outdoors and has accomplished the daunting task of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. I enjoy running, sky diving, and white water rafting. As an accomplished trial attorney I am not afraid to take on big, complex cases, and in the courtroom I am relentless and aggressive and will fight diligently, to get the best possible results, for my clients who do not have the means or ability to take on the “big guys.

Mi abogada es muy inteligente. (My attorney is very intelligent.)
My attorney was always very professional and very responsive. Her staff always helped throughout the whole process. I am very appreciative and thankful for all the hard work Fenja did throughout the trial. I would recommend her to anyone involved in an accident that needs an attorney. She also helped prepare my family for the whole trial process and while doing so became very close. She was the best in Trial. I am very thankful and happy with the final result.

Extremely Dedicated
The dedication that Fenja applied to my case was truly unbelievable, and made all the difference in the out come. During our time in court my case was given the utmost priority, not only by Fenja but the whole of Russel Lazarus fought vehemently on my behave. Fenja not only addressed my individual needs, but she as well made my family a focus, and thereby created a holistic presentation for the jury. I have come to respect her opinion and professionalism greatly, and would reach out to her without question.
