“Understanding a client’s needs and objectives is as important as understanding the relevant law. The quickest and easiest solution might not necessarily be the solution that achieves everything a client wants. It’s my job to explore all available options and give the client the tools to make a fully informed decision.”
Jessica has a young son and enjoys using evenings and weekends as family time.
