JESSICA L. MORRIS defends clients in workers’ compensation matters. She represents self-insured employers, carriers and third-party administrators at hearings before the Workers’ Compensation Board, daily. Ms. Morris has tried numerous cases and made appearances before many New York hearing points. Having handled a high volume of cases, she is familiar with local workers’ compensation law judges and claimant’s counsels, which provides her clients with the advantage of her extensive experience. In addition to trials, she has conducted many depositions of medical witnesses.

Prior to joining the firm, Ms. Morris was an attorney at another law firm where she focused her practice in workers’ compensation, and, more specifically, workers’ compensation defense. Prior to that, Ms. Morris served as a hearing attorney for the Special Funds Conservation Committee, where she litigated workers’ compensation cases and negotiated complex settlement agreements.

While in law school, Ms. Morris was president of the Criminal Law Society, a member of the Public Interest Law Society, International Law Society, Human Rights Law Society and Phi Alpha Delta.

In her free time, Ms. Morris enjoys traveling, having visited all seven continents including Antarctica for her honeymoon. She is also a huge lover of all animals, but especially her two yellow labs, Samantha and Chloe, and her feisty miniature dachshund, Sebastian.
