Jessie represents clients across industries including automotive, biotechnology, design and construction, broadcasting and entertainment, finance, consumer products, and telecommunications.

She handles commercial disputes involving contract and warranty claims, securities litigation, design and construction disputes, business torts, defamation, unfair competition, and restrictive covenants including non-competes, non-solicits and related claims under federal statutes like the Defend Trade Secrets Act. Jessie also handles employment disputes involving harassment, discrimination, retaliation, concerted activity, and wage-and-hour claims.

Jessie is actively involved in the community. She serves on the board of directors for several organizations and has been recognized as a leader by KC Business Magazine and the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce.
