Jennifer Eason, Workers Compensation Trial Attorney
Over the past twenty years, Jennifer’s practice has primarily focused on helping countless individuals who have been injured while working. Since 1994, Jennifer has practiced almost exclusively within the workers’ compensation claims process, where she has created a reputation for herself as an empathetic and assertive advocate for injured workers. She is known by courtroom staff and defense attorneys for her strategic thinking and effective representation. Recently, Jennifer was named the 2017 Top Lawyer in Workers’ Compensation by Sacramento Magazine.
Jennifer’s litigation background is extensive. She has boldly represented clients at trial and argued on appeal. Above all, she is committed to helping individuals. Jennifer consistently declines to represent insurance companies or employers despite repeated offers, only opting to represent injured employees. Jennifer is an active member and sponsor of the California Association of Applicants Attorneys (CAAA), an organization whose primary goal is furthering the rights of Workers’ Compensation Applicants and other injured employees.
Jennifer’s comprehensive experience with the law qualifies her to fiercely advocate for her client’s rights. Although Jennifer retains all the qualities of a fierce lawyer, she also sincerely cares for her clients. She is incredibly empathetic to those injured on the job and enthusiastic about helping clients through the workers’ compensation claim process. Jennifer also understands the difficulties injured workers encounter and thoroughly leverages every aspect of an individual’s claim, delivering informed answers and acquiring maximum financial benefits.
Jennifer enjoys a challenge and spearheading projects in her professional and personal life. Jennifer first moved to Sacramento in 1989, where she assisted as an associate for the Junior League of Sacramento from 1993-2001. During that time, Jennifer developed her passion for volunteering and aiding the community. Before her children’s graduation, Jennifer was actively involved in their schools and education. She served as a room mom and a successful fundraising organizer for school events. These fundraisers comprised everything from raising funds to remodeling a non-profit school facility to chairing Jesuit High School’s Christmas Tree Lane Gala celebration. In college, Jennifer realized her passion for the law, where she acquired a Bachelor of Arts degree in Law and Society. She attended law school at the University of the Pacific in Stockton and McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento. There she met her husband Matthew R. Eason. Currently, they’re celebrating over twenty-five years of marriage and together are proud parents of two young adults in pursuit of their own passions in college. You can find Jennifer visiting her children at their colleges on most weekends or enjoying her weekday morning jogs with a women’s running group that she has been part of for around twenty years.
