The Rules of Professional Conduct state that “a lawyer not only represents clients but has a special responsibility for the quality of justice.” When a client is at their most vulnerable, facing uncertainty, and in an unfamiliar situation, they turn to competent and trustworthy lawyers – someone to take on the responsibility for justice. I strive to evaluate each claim on its own merits and to provide each client with an informed understanding of their rights, responsibilities, and opportunities for success.
Based in the Cleveland office of Reminger Co., LPA, Jessica focuses her practice on matters involving probate litigation, trust disputes, estate administration, and estate planning. Prior to joining Reminger, Jessica worked at a small general practice firm in Akron, Ohio, working in the areas of Estate Planning, Probate and Trust Administration, real estate, general civil litigation, small business law, and personal injury matters.
