Jessica was called to the bar in 2016 and began her practice as a criminal defence lawyer in Toronto, Ontario. Doing so provided her with invaluable trial experience, having acted as counsel in a wide variety of criminal cases, from minor sexual assault cases to high-profile first-degree murders.
Jessica and her husband Jaime moved to Barrie, Ontario in 2017. Not wanting to spend her time commuting, Jessica left the criminal defence firm in the big city and joined a local litigation boutique in Barrie. There, she expanded her practice to include civil ligation and appellate advocacy.
Jessica met Ryan when she was studying law at Osgoode Hall Law School. Ryan was her coach in a trial advocacy competition hosted by the Ontario Trial Lawyers’ Association. Under Ryan’s mentorship, Jessica won the Greg Monforton Award for Best Examination in Chief, as well as the Tim Boland Award for Best Overall Advocate. Jessica joined Breedon Litigation in 2019.
When Jessica is not practicing law, she can be found behind a camera or spending time on a local patio with Jaime and their pup, Ralphie.
