Court Dismisses Asbestos Case Against Valve Manufacturer

A valve manufacturer client faced a large demand in an asbestos lawsuit. Jennifer handled the fact investigation in the case, contacting the state agency to request records on the boiler construction, reviewing numerous deposition transcripts and analyzing the case for viable defendants. Given the facts, the litigation team advised the client to take the case to trial rather than agree to a settlement. The case was dismissed.

Community Leadership

Jennifer walks with and coaches sports for adults with developmental and cognitive disabilities.

Jennifer volunteers with St. Louis Arc, a United Way–funded nonprofit organization for people with developmental and cognitive disabilities. She assists with the walking club, where participants meet at a park, grab a buddy and walk together. The walkers talk about their days, sing songs or share other experiences.

In addition, she and her sister coach the basketball and soccer teams for the organization. The teams allow people to participate in sports they may never have had the chance to play. Jennifer finds it especially rewarding to coach soccer, where she teaches the team how to dribble, shoot and pass every Saturday during the fall soccer season.
