Jessica is currently on leave, travelling the world and enjoying life in a way that does not involve the practice of law. She is on inactive status with the California Bar and ineligible to practice law in any state at this time. Nevertheless, the firm would never have gotten off the ground without her hard work and friendship. We miss her terribly, and thus we can not bring ourselves to remove her from the website.
While an undergraduate student at Hampshire College, Jessica did field work with the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery Alabama and, age 19, became a union organizer for textile workers in the Southeast. Jessica then spent three years as the communications director for the Marine Division of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union in Seattle before heading off to attend law school at the Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C.
As an attorney, Jessica represented labor unions and unrepresented employees with one of the most prominent labor law firms in the country, focusing on individual and class action wage and hour litigation as well as traditional labor union law. From there, she expanded her practice to representing individuals and classes of employees in all areas of employment law, including discrimination, harassment, wage and hour, wrongful termination, defamation, retaliation, and contract disputes.
Jessica has spent considerable time examining the particular employment law issues arising in the adult entertainment field. Before joining Randazza Legal Group, Jessica represented a group of exotic dancers who were challenging their status as independent contractors. She now uses that experience and her deep knowledge of labor and employment law to counsel clients on how to best manage their employment law issues.
Though ready to litigate on our clients’ behalf, Jessica brings the most value to our clients by counseling them and restructuring their employment and independent contractor relationships so that they can avoid disputes before they arise.
