Attorney Jennifer Bishop joined Bishop Legal in 1996 as one of the firm’s first lawyers, and her tenure has been marked by success after success. After graduating cum laude from the Seattle University School of Law in 1992, Jennifer worked as an associate in the insurance and commercial litigation departments of a large Seattle corporate law firm, gaining valuable experience. Rather than focusing on corporate interests, however, she wanted to help the people who needed it the most – the seriously injured.
Bishop Legal’s personalized focus on its individual clients struck a chord in Jennifer, and she’s worked fervently in support of wrongfully-injured folks across the Puget Sound area ever since.
