About Jenifer W. Svancara

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.
