Jennifer, a litigation attorney, appreciates that a day in court can be an intimidating and stressful experience for you. That’s why she makes it a point to take you by the hand and guide you through the process with an understanding and gentle manner. Jennifer’s relationship with her clients goes beyond just straight legal representation – she also keeps in mind your emotional and privacy concerns.

As a member of the Czepiga Daly Pope and Perri litigation team, Jennifer is skilled in defending, prosecuting, and negotiating in the areas of fiduciary litigation, probate litigation, conservatorships, nursing home collections, elder financial exploitation, settlement agreements, and contractual disputes.

Before joining us, Jennifer worked at a firm where she took and defended depositions, researched, drafted, and argued motions and prepared cases for trial (including first chair trial experience).

On the personal side, Jennifer was born in Hungary, moved to Texas, and we are grateful she ended up here in New England. Jennifer’s Hungarian roots run deep and she speaks the language fluently. Outside the office and court room, she is an avid traveler, delights in culinary adventure and enjoys life with her husband and two huskies.
