Shareholder

overview

Jennifer Feld focuses her practice on general liability defense, with an emphasis on premises liability, automobile, product liability, first party, and complex personal injury matters. She represents both corporations and individuals and advises national corporate, retail, restaurant, lodging, and small business clients on risk management and security matters.

Jennifer is a member of Kubicki Draper's Hospitality and Retail Practice Group, which caters its services to hoteliers, restaurants, event sponsors, retailers, and others in Florida's hotbed of tourism, hospitality and entertainment. She is also a member of the firm's First Party Practice Group which focuses on handling all aspects of personal and commercial property coverage and litigation.

Jennifer received her undergraduate degree, summa cum laude, from Emory University, and her Juris Doctor, cum laude, from the University of Florida Levin College of Law, where she was a member of the Florida Moot Court Team. Prior to joining the firm in 2011, Jennifer clerked for the Honorable Scott J. Silverman at the 11th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida, and was a summer associate at Kubicki Draper. She is admitted to practice in all state courts within Florida and the United States District Court for the Southern and Middle Districts of Florida.

Jennifer is an advocate in and out of the courtroom. Her experiences as a new mother and a trial attorney have made her a pioneer for maternity leave and lactation room awareness. Jennifer’s son was born premature and had an intolerance to formula. Soon after he was born, Jennifer was set for trial and was faced with having to juggle pumping milk for her son and trying the case. After successfully defending the case, Jennifer published an article for the Daily Business Review titled, “A New Mother’s Guide to Pumping During a Jury Trial” in an effort to help other women in similar situations. The article, which is a practical guide to the procedure, motion practice, and jury instructions required for pumping during a jury trial was also recognized by Law.com, the Florida Bar, the American Bar Association, and Above the Law.

Shortly after her first article, Jennifer co-authored an article for the St. Petersburg Paraclete, entitled “Lactation Rooms: The Personal and Professional Pursuit of Equality for Women in the Legal Profession.” The article includes Jennifer’s personal testimony and experience as a new mother and attorney without access to a lactation room. All of these efforts resulted in news coverage, and ultimately a ribbon cutting at the St. Petersburg Courthouse where a new lactation room was established.

Jennifer continues to champion this important cause and is working with Florida Association for Women Lawyers (FAWL) to secure space for lactation rooms in courthouses across the State of Florida. Most recently, Jennifer published an article for Law.com "Maternity Leave, Lactation Rooms and Firm Culture — Keys to Law Firm Diversity," advocating for liberal maternity leave policies and lactation rooms as an effort to increase law firm diversity.
