Jennifer L. Pelton
Jennifer L. Pelton joined HPM&B in 2022 as an associate. She represents healthcare providers in a variety of medical malpractice and nursing home liability claims from inception to trial. Previously she worked for a medical malpractice and nursing home liability firm in New York City.
In reviewing medical records, interviewing witnesses, and consulting with the metropolitan area’s top experts, Jennifer crafts strategies to achieve successful outcomes for clients. She uses her keen investigative skills to obtain vital information for cases and successfully drafts and argues motions before courts when facing off uncooperative opposing counsel. In this pursuit, she has discovered significant information that has given her a strong upper hand in terms of a settlement amount.
Jennifer has also provided positive results for clients by preparing mediation statements and appearing at mediations and with motions leading to the dismissal of lawsuits. She is instrumental in cases that lead to trial, from preparing exhibits and witnesses to preparing motions to block evidence from opposing parties.
Jennifer also has a background in personal injury matters having worked both at plaintiff and defendant firms. During law school, Jennifer worked primarily full-time drafting winning appellate briefs and motions for a solo practitioner in all of the appellate courts of the state.
