Jessica L. Morris is an associate in Chartwell’s New York office.  Ms. Morris graduated Magna Cum Laude from Long Island University in 2008. She is a member of Phi Eta which was founded at LIU Post in 1959 to recognize those students who meet the qualifications of Phi Beta Kappa. Before law school, Ms. Morris spent time traveling in Sydney, Australia.  In 2012, Ms. Morris graduated from Tulane University Law School where she 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.

Upon graduating from Tulane Law School, Ms. Morris was a Hearing Attorney for the Special Funds Conservation Committee litigating workers’ compensation cases and negotiating complex settlement agreements before she moved onto Rubin Abramson LLP where she represented injured workers.  For the last few years, Ms. Morris has worked for a firm dealing exclusively in workers’ compensation defense. She served in many roles including representing self-insured employers, carriers and third party administrators at hearings before the Workers’ Compensation Board on a daily basis. Additionally, Ms. Morris has tried numerous cases and has made appearances at all of the downstate and many upstate New York hearing points.  Handling this high volume of cases, she has become familiar with most of the workers’ compensation law judges and claimant’s counsels involved in this legal field. In addition to trials, she has conducted many depositions of medical witnesses.

In her free time, Ms. Morris enjoys traveling the world having successfully traveled to 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.
