Jenifer’s practice focuses on areas of civil litigation including automobile accidents, construction litigation, design professional defense, employment and labor law, complex products liability and wrongful death cases. Jenifer has represented a wide range of clients from small family owned businesses to large multi-state corporations.
Jenifer’s hard work and attention to early investigation of claims have assisted her in defending her clients. Utilizing these skills, she has been able to leverage a good surveillance video in a slip and fall case to negotiate a minor settlement against an exorbitant initial demand. In another matter, Jenifer obtained a defense verdict in a property damage claim where plaintiffs were seeking $1.3 million. Jenifer also obtained a favorable ruling on a hotly contested dispositive motion that was appealed and upheld by both the Kansas Court of Appeals and the Kansas Supreme Court.
