With experience in nearly every facet of a family law case, Jennifer brings a wealth of institutional knowledge to all of her cases. She pairs this knowledge with a commitment to thoughtful and purposeful representation.
Jennifer’s philosophy is to start by listening to clients, identifying their chief concerns, and determining optimal outcomes. She then provides her clients with thoughtful advice and compassionate counsel tailored to their unique circumstances. Keeping the client informed and working strategically with opposing counsel allows Jennifer to find avenues for settlement when achievable while simultaneously preparing the case for litigation when necessary.
While litigation is sometimes necessary, I find the bigger challenge and the greater thrill is negotiating a good settlement that will aid the client and his or her family for years in the future.
Jennifer obtained her Bachelor's in Film and Digital Media from UC Santa Cruz and graduated on the Dean's List from Santa Clara University for her J.D. Before starting at Van Voorhis & Sosna, Jennifer worked for several years at family law firms in Silicon Valley and San Diego, California. There she handled high-conflict litigation involving custody, support, and property division. She further gained experience with complex financial matters, including issues of allocation of stock options/RSUs, resolving separate property interests, and support awards. Jennifer looks forward to bringing these skills to her clients at Van Voorhis & Sosna and working with them to meet their goals.
Jennifer has consistently demonstrated exceptional talent and promise in her field, earning her the well-deserved recognition of the Rising Stars award for three consecutive years (2021-2023). Her commitment to excellence is truly inspiring.
