Disclaimer: It is unclear how Avvo calculates its lawyer ratings, as such I cannot vouch for Avvo ratings and I do not recommend relying upon Avvo ratings when searching for an attorney. 

I have practiced in the workers' compensation field for over 13 years, first on the defense side and now, since 2006, on the side of the worker.  I love what I do and I always strive to have prompt, informative and engaging discussions with my clients.  The L&I process can be very complex and frustrating.  My goal is to alleviate the stress many injured workers experience after an injury.  With each client, I discuss issues such as treatment, time loss, loss of earning power, vocational services, permanent partial disability or total disability, depending on the circumstances.

Outside of work, I devote my time to my two small children, both of whom make me laugh on a daily basis.  I hope to instill the same sense of public service in them that my parents instilled in me.

Very capable attorney
I highly recommend Jill. My case was complicated, but Jill knew the law was on our side and was willing to take me as a client when I was declined by others. She was very good at keeping me informed, very capable, and we were able to settle this case satisfactorily.
