Hi, I’m Jill. I’m a Midwestern transplant from St. Louis, Missouri. I am a sewist, a bookworm, a creative seeker of random adventure, wife of a High Quality Human, baker and eater of all the things. I love cake, community, coffee, and this work.

I’ve spent most of my legal career in California. I started my west coast journey in San Jose at Rehon & Roberts, with some of the finest real estate and banking lawyers in the area. After moving to Oakland, I worked at the Hanson Law firm with Christopher Hanson, who remains one of the most tenacious and creative lawyers I know.  I have Philip M. Andersen & Associates to thank for my in-courtroom trial training and first-chair trial experience.


Some of the things I’ve done to get ready to be my best for you:


  • University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law, graduated top 1/3rd rank

  • NITA trial training

  • SEEDS Community Resolution Mediation Training

  • First-chair and second-chair trial experience

  • Alameda County Bar Association (ACBA) Estates and Trusts section and Business section

  • California State Bar, Estates and Trusts section and Business section

  • AIDS Project of the East Bay, Board Member

  • Proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, an international public service sorority
