Jenna began working directly with clients while still in law school as a Rule 9 intern at Gonzaga’s University Legal Assistance clinic, an organization where qualified law students and professors provide free legal services to those in need within the Spokane community. It was during this time that Jenna was first exposed to Social Security Disability cases, and discovered her passion for helping the disabled and people in need throughout her community. While in law school, Jenna returned home to Lakewood during the summer months and worked as an extern at the Crystal Judson Family Justice Center in Tacoma, WA, providing free legal services to victims of domestic violence.
After spending her first year out of law school working for a large company in a corporate setting, Jenna decided to follow her passion for disability law and take a position where she was not only able to continue helping disabled persons in their fight for Social Security Disability benefits, but also expand her practice to representing injured workers in their Worker’s Compensation claims with the Department of Labor & Industries. Since that time, Jenna has successfully represented claimants before the Social Security Administration, the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals, the Superior Courts of both King & Pierce County, and the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington.
