Jessica focuses her litigation practice on defending premises liability, products liability, construction defect, mass tort, and general negligence cases. She handles these cases from claim onset, assisting in pre-suit investigations, through trial with an eye on obtaining the best, and most cost effective, result for her clients.  Jessica understands that not every Dram Shop, trucking, construction litigation, premises liability or personal injury case is the same and that each deserves a unique and tailored approach.

Jessica represents product manufacturers, sellers, and designers; homeowners; real estate agents and brokers; commercial and residential premises owners and managers; bars and restaurants; ranch owners; and other business entities in cases involving minor to catastrophic injuries; property damage; claims of fraud and misrepresentation; and deceptive trade practices. Jessica also advises insurers on the enforceability of various contractual provisions, including indemnity and limitation of liability provisions. Jessica also defends assisted living facilities in COVID-19 exposure claims and lawsuits.

Jessica has successfully tried cases to verdict. From triple fatality dram shop to severe injury products liability to traumatic brain injury cases, she tried or assisted in trying each with the vigor necessary to obtain the best outcome for her client. Jessica has also obtained dismissals through summary judgments in courts throughout Texas.  And, understanding that not every case is one to be tried or thoroughly litigated, Jessica has obtained favorable settlements for clients early in cases where warranted.
