Q: Can you provide a quick overview of your day?

By Jennifer Jeffries, Esq.

A:I spend my work day providing general employment counseling, performing mock interviews, and discussing career strategies with law students and attorneys of all experience levels.

Q: Can you tell us a bit about your formal education and background prior to joining Legal Authority?
A: I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from California State University, Fullerton. I received my law degree from University of San Diego School of Law.

Q: Why did you become an Employment Advocate?
A: As much as I love the law, I knew practicing was just not for me. When I saw the number of qualified attorneys who were struggling to find legal positions I found it very frustrating and I knew I wanted to help. This job is one that allows me to combine my background in psychology with my law degree while assisting attorneys in achieving their career goals.

Q: Why did you choose Legal Authority?
A: I did my research and Legal Authority was the best in its field, which made it the obvious choice.

Q: What do you enjoy about the work?
A: As cliché as it may sound, I really enjoy helping attorneys find jobs. I love what I do, and I find a great deal of satisfaction in helping other attorneys find jobs that they love.

Q: What advice would you give attorneys who are thinking about using Legal Authority?
A: Legal Authority provides a great service; it is one I personally recommend to my attorney friends. If you have any questions about the service, please do not hesitate to give me a call.

Q: Ok, let's get to know you a bit more on a personal level. What's your favorite T.V. show?
A: I love food, so anything on The Food Network.

Q: Where did you grow up and where do you live now?
A: I was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. I currently live in Newport Beach, California.

Q: What are your favorite drinks?
A: Green Tea, Dr. Pepper, and Zinfandel (not to be confused with White Zinfandel).

Q: What are your favorite foods?
A: I adore the avocado. I love sushi. Other than that, anything that is spicy or covered with cheese.

Q: What is playing on your iPod right now?
A: I love music, and I listen to a little bit of everything. Right now I am listening to At Last by Etta James.

Q: What is the one thing your clients would not know about you?
A: I have 20/15 vision. If you have 20/20 vision, it means that when you stand 20 feet away from an eye chart you can see what the "normal" human being can see. A person with 20/15 vision can see at 20 feet what a "normal" person can see when standing 15 feet away from the chart.

Q: Anything else interesting going on in your life?
A: I spent three weeks in September traveling in France and Italy, it was beautiful and the food was amazing. The best part? I got engaged in Paris!!
