About Jessica

Learn Jessica’s areas of practice.

I am a litigator whose practice focuses on commercial litigation - including insurance coverage, contract, fraud, construction defect, and intellectual property cases - and media litigation - including defamation, privacy, access, prior restraint, reporters' shield laws, public records, and newsgathering torts.

I represent clients in diverse commercial litigation, with extensive experience representing insurers in coverage disputes. I also represent newspapers, Internet service providers, Internet content providers, and book publishers. In addition to media litigation, I provide prepublication content advice to media companies and Internet content providers.
