In her personal and professional experience, she sees how a proactive, empathic approach can help individuals and families find solutions to preserve relationships through healthy communication.
Jennifer strives to exemplify this approach in all she does. When she and her family faced a likely legal battle as they took possession of a home they’d purchased, they sought a better solution. Instead of eviction, they offered negotiation and a small settlement. The tenant left on good terms, and the family was thrilled to move into their new home.
Jennifer’s focus on communication in the world of trusts and estates emerged from her paralegal studies. She didn’t like the waste she saw in litigation and the legal system in general. She resolved to help people avoid that kind of cost, frustration, and animosity.
Jennifer attended an end of life family communication training John led in 2014. The two hit it off, and Jennifer promptly joined O’Grady Law Group as a paralegal.
