Background

Jennifer grew up in Point Pleasant, West Virginia and received her Bachelor of Arts, magna cum laude, in Psychology from Bethany College. The daughter of a registered nurse, some of her earliest memories are making home health visits with her mother on the county roads of West Virginia and evenings around the piano singing with her grandmother and great-grandmother.

During her time as an undergrad, Jennifer studied abroad in London, England, served as secretary of her college class and was president of the school's music society. Following college, Jennifer began her professional career in a non-profit, skilled nursing facility in Pittsburgh. This experience led her to the University of Pittsburgh School of Law where she participated in the school's Elder Law and Health Law clinics. Through her clinical work, she provided free legal services to indigent clients in the Pittsburgh community and further solidified her interest in elder and special needs planning as an ideal blend of law and counseling.

Professional

Jennifer is a seasoned Certified Elder Law Attorney having been certified in 2012 and recertified in 2017. She assists clients in all aspects of asset preservation as it relates to long-term care expenses including pre-planning, Medicaid application process and VA Benefits planning. Jennifer also specializes in Special Needs Planning including estate planning and public benefit planning for individuals with special needs, for parents of children with special needs, and coordination with personal injury attorneys to maximize law suit proceeds for injured plaintiffs with disabilities. In addition to elder and special needs planning, Jennifer assists clients with general estate and trust planning, estate administration and trust reformation issues.

Jennifer is a frequent lecturer for the Pennsylvania Bar Institute where she educates other attorneys on elder and special needs planning topics. She also speaks regularly to health care professionals and the general public on various related topics.

Personal

Jennifer and her husband reside in Lawrenceville with their two children. She is very active with the Parkinson Foundation of Western Pennsylvania and in her spare time she enjoys time with her family, international travel, music and design.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
