Jennifer Gardner, proudly serves clients in criminal and civil legal disputes since 1987 as a trial lawyer, and she owns her own law firm in Los Angeles, California since 1992. She is a proud graduate of the Trial Lawyers College, a writer, a speaker, and a lawyer.
Her specialty is developing the story of your case and telling it in a compelling way at every phase of the litigation. She represented individuals and enterprises of all sizes in business and real estate disputes (just about any kind of dispute concerning money, reputation, intellectual property, real property and corporate/partnership dissolutions). She spent years as a criminal defense trial lawyer, defending individuals accused of serious felonies involving allegations of sexual assault, rape, murder, kidnapping, domestic violence, robbery, and cyberbullying, stalking and harassment.
She is one of those rare attorneys with both criminal and civil trial experience, which helps her when representing clients accused of sexual assault in civil cases who are targets of ongoing criminal investigations or proceedings. Although she rarely accepts criminal cases, that experience informs every aspect of her current work for her clients.
Her expertise are weaving a compelling, persuasive narrative out of the complex events, emotional dynamics and circumstances of your dispute or legal problem, and developing a messaging strategy around “what happened” that she uses to position you in the strongest possible way well before you go to trial. She is always a student of advanced persuasion, influential communication and trial techniques. She continues to study and train so that she can hone these skills and better serve her clients. She also assisted clients in need of crisis public relations and communications strategy/management.
As you may have seen, Jennifer owns a strategic brand consulting business and she educates professionals and businesses about how to apply powerful communication strategies in their digital messaging for business growth. She is a frequent public speaker and educator on these topics.
Additionally, for approximately 18 years she served as a part time administrative law judge for the Los Angeles County Civil Service Commission where she heard primarily matters involving on and off duty misconduct for law enforcement.
Last year she officially became “of counsel” to the law firm of Booth LLP. Through this affiliation she is able to provide her clients with even more cost-effective yet high-quality legal representation experience.
