Jenny has experience handling cases from the initial client consultation to preparing a writ of certiorari to the United States Supreme Court. Her experience allows her to work with clients to develop a cost effective litigation plan for each case.  Recently, Jenny was on the defense team that prevailed in a workers' compensation case involving a discovery-related issue that was upheld on appeal to the Louisiana Supreme Court. This had a state-wide effect on the handling of discovery in workers compensation matters. Clients come to her from a wide variety of industry sectors and range in size from small family-owned businesses to Fortune 500 corporate giants who are headquartered in Louisiana and throughout the U.S.  Regardless of their size, type or location, Jenny's clients value her honesty, efficiency, accessibility and responsiveness. Aside from workers' compensation cases, she regularly handles insurance defense and general commercial litigation.  In addition to her trial practice, Jenny utilizes her accounting and finance background to assist start-up and fast-growth companies with organization, structure and other business consultation needs.
