Vital expertise for what matters.

Jennifer Lurken—an accomplished attorney who has been practicing law for the last seventeen years—understands the importance and necessity of effective mediation. As an experienced litigator, Jennifer has participated in numerous mediations and experienced the intellectual decision-making process and emotions a client faces when deciding to either resolve the case at mediation or proceed to trial. As a qualified mediator, Jennifer’s understanding of civil litigation, banking, employment and bankruptcy law guides her while assisting parties to an agreed resolution. Jennifer’s work as a Chapter 7 bankruptcy trustee over several years assisted numerous adverse parties in resolving many disputes.

Recognizing that litigation and trial is expensive to all parties, Jennifer’s commitment to assisting parties to identify the real issues creating the conflict between the parties—by identifying and acknowledging the different positions of each party—leads to a resolution of the dispute on all levels.
