Biography

A Preeminent AV® rated trial attorney, well-known throughout California for her expertise in construction claims and related insurance issues, Jackie represents a wide array of clients in complex construction defect litigation matters pending in California. She serves as panel counsel for several major insurance carriers and third party administrators, and also is directly retained by many major trades and design professionals to represent their interests.
