Bio

Jennifer is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and member of the California Lawyers Association Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame. She has won complex jury trials across a wide spectrum of subjects. Benchmark Litigation lists her among the Top 100 Trial Attorneys in America, and the Top 20 in California. Chambers USA and Chambers Global recommend her for trials and commercial litigation, calling her "the consummate trial lawyer" and "an incredible cross-examiner." She has won three CLAY Awards (California Lawyer Magazine California Lawyers of the Year).

In 2011 she was lead counsel for MGA in the retrial of Mattel v. MGA, a billion-dollar "bet-the-company" case (AKA "Barbie v. Bratz"), in which a jury rejected Mattel's trade secret and copyright claims awarded MGA $170 million for misappropriation of its own trade secrets. Including attorneys fees, the total award was $309 million.

In 2009 Jennifer won California's largest business jury verdict that year -- $350 million verdict for her venture-capitalist client in a 5-month fraud trial. The case settled in bankruptcy court for $120 million.

Jennifer represented Standard & Poors in United States v. The McGraw Hill Companies. In 2013 she successfully defended a Saudi princess falsely accused of human trafficking. She represented Michael Ovitz, founder of CAA and former chair of the Walt Disney Company. She won Broadcom co-founder Henry Nicholas a $43 million tax deduction the IRS had denied.

In 2018 she won a defense verdict for MassMutual in downtown Los Angeles in a class action jury trial. 

In 2017 Jennifer as co-lead counsel won an acquittal for her developer client Jeffrey Burum in a 9-month jury trial on charges he bribed members of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors. The California Attorney General had called "the largest corruption case in the history of San Bernardino, and possibly California."  The jury was out a little over two hours before returning its not guilty verdict.  

Benchmark ranks Jennifer as a "National Litigation Star." She's been named 12 times by the Los Angeles Daily Journal as one of California's Top 100 Lawyers; is listed in "The Best Lawyers in America" in three categories; is among the Lawdragon 500 Leading Lawyers in America; and is among Super Lawyers' Top 10 in Southern California.
 In 2020 Super Lawyers ranked her #1, following her #2 ranking in 2019.
