    Biography

    Jessica is the supervising attorney for the firm's Workers' Compensation Department in Delaware. She represents employers, insurance carriers and third-party administrators in all manner of claims related to workers' compensation. Jessica has defended cases involving car manufacturers and government agencies. She also handles successive carrier/employer disputes.

    Jessica successfully argued before the Superior and Supreme Courts that Huffman damages do not begin to accrue until at least 44 days from the date of a settlement, giving the employer an initial 14-day period to satisfy the settlement and 30 days to cure any default for the failure to pay timely.

    A graduate of the University of Delaware, Jessica received her degree in international relations and economics. She later attended Widener University School of Law.

    Jessica is a member of the Defense Counsel of Delaware, and previously served as the Delaware state liaison for the Defense Research Institute. She is also the former chair of the Workers' Compensation Section of the Delaware State Bar Association. Jessica has presented many in-house seminars and has spoken on various workers' compensation matters before members of the Bar.
