St. Charles, Illinois
|Shareholder and Senior Attorney|
Jennifer Adams Murphy has over 20 years of experience in employment and commercial litigation. She believes that the best solution to litigation is avoidance and, to that end, believes that employer training and pre-litigation counsel is critical to the success of any business. Where litigation is necessary, she will aggressively defend employers before administrative agencies or in state or federal court.
Ms. Murphy is a cum laude graduate of Marquette Law School where she served as Articles Editor of the Marquette Law Review. While in law school she published the article, "At Work While Under the Influence." Following graduation from law school, Ms. Murphy was appointed as the judicial clerk to the Hon. Justice Louis J. Ceci of the Wisconsin Supreme Court. After her clerkship, Ms. Murphy's career has included work as a litigator for a major Chicago law firm as well as nearly 20 years of private practice in the areas of employment discrimination, retaliatory discharge, non-compete disputes, defamation and various other employment and commercial disputes and litigation. Ms. Murphy also enjoys working with clients to draft employment and severance agreements responsive to their particular needs.
Ms. Murphy has represented clients before the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Illinois Department of Human Rights, various Illinois circuit and appellate courts as well as federal district courts.
