Jessica C. Richardson

Jessica Richardson defends individuals, professionals, homeowners associations, and insurers. She consistently focuses on achieving the best possible outcome for her clients, whether through negotiating a settlement with opposing counsel or presenting the case to a jury. Her experience includes defending negligence, wrongful death, intentional tort, discrimination, professional liability, and punitive damages claims. 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.

In addition to frequently negotiating settlements tailored to her clients’ specific needs, Jessica has defended insurers in hundreds of no-fault arbitrations, amassing experience and knowledge beyond that of basic no-fault law to include issues such as staged accidents and provider fraud. Equally as comfortable in front of a jury, Jessica has successfully tried cases in venues throughout Minnesota, including cases involving catastrophic orthopedic injury and brain injury.
