Jeaniene has worked in the legal profession for over 35 years, primarily in the personal injury/products liability fields. She also has experience handling FELA, class action, business, commercial and intellectual property litigation.
For over 29 years, Jeaniene has participated in the firm's national representation of several prominent clients.
She has assisted in discovery and trials of: a two month multi-jurisdiction federal patent infringement case; a three month challenging products liability case in California, that included numerous expert witnesses, depositions and hundreds of trial exhibits; a seven week products liability wrongful death case involving a personal watercraft; a personal watercraft explosion case in Seattle; an intellectual property arbitration in Chicago; and, most recently, a products liability utility vehicle case in Texas - all of which were victories for our clients.
In the California case, the plaintiffs requested a verdict of more than $200 million, one of the highest in personal watercraft litigation history.
Jeaniene has prepared for and participated in trials around the country, some of which have included production of hundreds of thousands of documents. She has managed products liability cases involving over 2,500 plaintiffs in various jurisdictions across the nation.
Jeaniene is completely familiar with Sanction trial presentation software and has been responsible for the organization and presentation of electronic exhibits in the courtroom.
In 2009, Jeaniene was nominated for Paralegal of the Year of the St. Louis Association of Legal Assistants.
