Craig Olivo, who hired Jessica right out of law school after she interned at the firm, had this to say about her. “I couldn’t be more pleased to see Jessica recognized for the extraordinary job she does providing service of superior quality and value for our clients, and to our firm. She is most deserving of this honor.”

She is active in the Nassau County Women’s Bar Association (NCWBA) and as Vice President coordinated a monthly Continuing Legal Education (CLE) series for its members. She has also presented CLE classes on various employment issues, including sexual harassment, for the NCWBA and Nassau County Bar. As an officer and volunteer for the Nassau County Women’s Bar Foundation, Jessica recently helped raise approximately $35,000 to support breast cancer awareness and research. She also sits on the Business Advisory Council of the North Shore Child and Family Guidance Center (NSCFGC), a not-for-profit children's mental health agency, and helps organize charity outreach for Bond’s Garden City office.
