The most important thing I can do is recognize that every client and case is unique and different, and that every case requires its own unique path to reach its best resolution. 

Jade has both trial and appellate experience in various areas of civil litigation in Kentucky and Ohio. She has also represented employers throughout the multiple levels of the workers’ compensation system.

Jade was one of three counsel to receive the 2014 OARS award from Westfield Insurance Company, in recognition for her efforts at resolving cases in a cost-effective and creative manner.  Additionally, in 2016, Jade was awarded a Golden Gavel award by Westfield Insurance Company, in recognition for her handling of a complex litigation file.

Before joining the firm, Jade externed with the Honorable Judge Mark P. Painter. She also worked at another Cincinnati law firm that specialized in personal injury, medical malpractice, premises liability, and intentional tort cases. For the first seven years of her law practice, Jade was at another regional law firm, at which she specialized in malpractice and civil litigation defense.

During 2008 and 2009, Jade was a Cincinnati Bengals Cheerleader. She particularly enjoyed the work she did in that role with the charities throughout Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. In fact, Jade has continued to work with some of the charities that she started a relationship with as a Bengals Cheerleader.

Jade and her husband jointly received the "Citizen of the Year" award from the Fraternal Order of Police for stopping a random attack of violence on a young woman in a local park. For their same efforts, they also received a Resolution of Appreciation from the Hamilton County Park District Board.
