She started her public interest law career at Advocates for Basic Legal Equality (ABLE), another Ohio Legal Aid organization. Jessica spent eleven years at ABLE, most recently in their Dayton office.
She received her BA, cum laude, and MA from the Ohio State University. Jessica received her JD, cum laude, from the University of Toledo College of Law. Jessica is an immigration law specialist, and has experience in tax and family law.
