Jessica C. Richardson

Jessica Richardson represents individuals, professionals, associations, and insurers. She consistently focuses on achieving the best possible outcome for her clients, whether through providing counsel and guidance, negotiating settlements, or presenting a case to a jury. She understands that for many individuals, being sued is a new and stressful experience, at times presenting risk of significant personal financial exposure. For this reason, she prides herself on maintaining clear and consistent communication with clients throughout the life of a lawsuit.

Jessica has successfully tried and arbitrated cases in venues throughout Minnesota, including cases involving professional negligence, catastrophic orthopedic injury, brain injury, and wrongful death.  In addition, Jessica has defended insurers in hundreds of no fault arbitrations, often working closely with SIU in addressing suspected misrepresentation or provider fraud.
