Overview

With a background in technology as well as litigation, Jerri assists both the firm’s toxic tort and eDiscovery teams.

After serving in the military for 12 years, Jerri has worked in the legal industry for nearly a quarter century, with almost half of that time as a paralegal. She began her paralegal career in litigation, with an emphasis on workers’ compensation.

With a passion for technology alongside her passion for paralegal work, Jerri has also served in information technology roles at law firms. When she discovered that the eDiscovery field allowed her to combine both of her interests, she enthusiastically learned as much as she could about electronic storage. Jerri went on to serve as eDiscovery manager at her prior firm, where she was responsible for the conversion, processing and review of all electronically stored information as well as trial preparation and attendance.

At Husch Blackwell, Jerri divides her time between supporting toxic tort cases and the firm’s eDiscovery work. She thrives on the continued developments in the legal technology world and is enthusiastic about helping meet client needs in this area. Jerri is known for her flexibility, accessibility and dedication, but she’s most of all known simply for being helpful: Jerri’s goal is always to ensure she’s done as much as possible to help clients and support her team.
