I love being in a courtroom and fighting for my clients. My personal life has plenty of chaotic moments as the mother of five children. Fortunately, that has taught me the importance of being organized, proactive, and decisive – traits that drive my success as a trial lawyer.
Jeanne focuses her practice on the defense of medical and professional negligence cases, including physicians, pharmacists, hospitals, and long-term care facilities. She also serves as National Coordinating Counsel for a major Fortune 500 company. Jeanne practices primarily out of our Cleveland office, defending cases throughout Ohio and beyond. Having first-chaired countless trials, she handles herself with comfort and ease in the courtroom. She serves as co-chair of the firm's Medical Malpractice Group and is a member of the Management Group and Executive Committee. She also is a past leader of Reminger's Women's Leadership Council.
Jeanne is licensed to practice law in both Ohio and Michigan, and has handled complex cases in other states on a pro hac vice basis, including Georgia, Nevada, South Carolina, Florida, Indiana, and Tennessee. She is a member of various professional bar associations. She has presented matters on appeal at both the state and federal levels, having had the privilege of presenting a case to the Ohio Supreme Court.
Jeanne has presented on various topics, including medical malpractice, nursing home negligence and risk prevention since joining Reminger. She also finds time to give back to her community, having been previously recognized by John Carroll University as an Alum who is personally, professionally and philanthropically "making a difference." Toward that end, she served for ten years on the board of the PM Foundation Inc., dba Urban Community School, which is a non-profit organization devoted to providing a quality, faith-based education to children in the near west side of Cleveland who would not otherwise have access to it. In 2015, Jeanne changed her philanthropic focus, and joined the board of GiGi’s Playhouse Cleveland where she works to further the mission of changing the way people in the world see Down Syndrome, and helping individuals who live with Down syndrome achieve and realize their potential.
Jeanne has also been recognized by her peers. Ohio Super Lawyers Magazine recognized Jeanne as a "Rising Star" from 2010 through 2013, and as a Super Lawyer from 2014 through 2019.
