Jennifer Remy-Estorino is a Shareholder in Kubicki Draper’s Miami office. Jenny’s career began while working in house for one of the largest insurance carriers in the U.S. While Jenny has focused her career on trial practice, she also has experience in appellate law, writing appellate briefs and petitions, and arguing before the Third District Court of Appeal before joining Kubicki Draper in July 2008.
From a young age, it was clear to everyone that Jenny’s vivacious personality and thoughtful expressiveness would someday serve as some of her best assets in her future career; and she dreamed of a career in law or theater. As a young woman, Jenny obtained her undergraduate degree in Broadcast Journalism from Florida International University where she further refined her communication skills and her ability to captivate her audiences in a coherent and engaging way. While a career in journalism appealed to Jenny, she was determined to capitalize on these skills to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a successful attorney. Jenny proceeded to obtain her Juris Doctorate degree from Florida International University as a part of the University’s 2005 graduating inaugural class.
Jenny’s talents have clearly served her well; she takes pride in the fact that she has successfully developed a diverse legal practice over her past eleven years at Kubicki Draper while defending a wide-range of cases in both state and federal court, including: automobile negligence; premises liability; construction defect; intellectual property; insurance bad faith/coverage disputes; negligent security; commercial litigation; and first-party property cases. Jenny attributes her professional success to her personality and ability to communicate and work with her clients and opposing counsel: “the key is to initiate and maintain an open line of verbal communication.” According to Jenny, this open line of communication and her attention to detail enable her to spot issues early on and work with others to quickly resolve (what could otherwise be) stressful situations that often arise during litigation. Along these lines, Jenny, who is Cuban American, further uses her bilingual capabilities as another tool to assist her Spanish-speaking clients navigate through the litigation process as well as an avenue to develop relationships.
When Jenny leaves the office at the end of each day, her work for the day is far from over. Jenny and her husband, Julio, are parents to two small children: Madison, who is three and a half years old, and Jacob, who is one and a half years old. For Jenny, nothing is more important than maintaining a healthy work-life balance, which, she confesses, “is a juggling act.” Jenny is able to make it work because she has established a resilient support system and is dedicated to surrounding herself with strong relationships with her family and friends. With Jenny’s mindset, drive, and talent, her success comes as no surprise to anyone.
