Since starting her practice in estate planning, Jen has always focused first on understanding the wishes and goals of her clients and their families, whether the client has simple estate planning needs or a multimillion dollar estate with complex assets. As Counsel in Gordon Feinblatt's Trusts & Estates Practice, Jen brings expertise to managing the interests of diverse clients, including closely held business owners, real estate developers, financial advisors, automotive dealers, attorneys, physicians, professors, as well as beneficiaries of multiple family trusts. By understanding her clients' personal needs, she aims to create the proper estate planning tools including wills, trusts, general powers of attorney, advance medical directives and other estate planning documents to ensure her clients' assets are protected and transferred efficiently.  Jen also assists clients with charitable planning and business succession planning, administering estates and preparing estate and gift tax returns.

Jen began her legal career as a law clerk for the Honorable Peter B. Krauser (former Chief Judge) of the Maryland Court of Special Appeals (2004-2005).  Prior to joining Gordon Feinblatt, she was Of Counsel and previously an associate at another prominent law firm in Baltimore.
