Jennifer L. Fiore
Location: San Francisco, California
Explanation of me:
Jennifer L. Fiore is a trial attorney with Mary Alexander & Associates, P.C., representing clients in serious injury and wrongful death claims throughout California.
Unlike most of her peers, Jennifer started her career in admiralty and maritime personal injury law, a particularly complex specialty that requires lawyers to master a host of intricate statutes and strategies. This experience prepared her for the complicated, often technical personal injury and product liability cases that Mary Alexander & Associates is known for taking on – and winning.
Whether she is representing injured Jones Act seaman, cruise ship passengers, automobile or trucking accident victims, or those who have suffered childhood sexual abuse or neglect in nursing homes, Jennifer’s goal is always the same: to help those who have suffered. And that’s something she began doing long before she sat for the bar exam. Before law school, Jennifer was a business administrator for a San Francisco nonprofit that houses the families of children receiving treatment for life-threatening illnesses.
Known for her composure under fire and commitment to clients, Jennifer’s results stand out clearly. She is dedicated to pursuing justice and her clients’ success. Since 2013, she has served on the governing board of the Consumer Attorneys of California. Along with other members of the team, Jennifer was named Trial Lawyer of the Year by Public Justice Foundation in 2014 for the outstanding contribution to the public interest in People of California v. Atlantic Richfield.
When not in a courtroom or the office, you can find Jennifer in the East Bay area with her husband and children. She volunteers in her children’s schools and presently serves as President of the Parent Teacher Student Association.
