In nearly a decade since joining The Beasley Firm, Jill has become a seasoned trial lawyer while also focusing her practice on providing injured clients with all of the support and information they need to navigate the complex and unfamiliar litigation process. She has represented clients in a variety of cases including catastrophic personal injury, medical malpractice, legal malpractice, birth injuries, serious motor vehicle accidents, business and contract disputes, law firm partnership breakups, employment matters and more. To date, the cases Jill has worked on have a total settlement/verdict value of approximately $50 million. Recently, Jill was part of the trial team that obtained a $3 million verdict on behalf of a client who was injured while working as a waitress when she was grabbed by the neck and kissed by a restaurant patron, a historic verdict which punctuates the #metoo movement in eastern Pennsylvania.
Jill was born and raised in South Jersey and obtained her undergraduate degree in public relations from the University of Maryland, where she received the President’s Scholarship and graduated with honors. In 2005, she was awarded The Camden Law Dean’s Scholarship at Rutgers Law School in Camden, NJ.
