Jeanne M. Jorgensen, Esq.

Jeanne is an AV-rated attorney with over 25 years of experience litigating complex legal issues in both state and federal courts, including bankruptcy courts.  As an experienced litigator, Jeanne knows first-hand the inadequacies of our legal system for resolving private disputes. Even when a party “wins” in terms of a favorable judgment or outcome, it has also often “lost” in terms of the expenses incurred and the time, energy, and other resources necessarily redirected to the litigation. Jeanne uses her mediation skills to help parties achieve a less frustrating and more satisfying, cost-effective, and efficient resolution of disputes.

Jeanne is a passionate problem-solver and a skilled communicator who employs a practical, forward-looking approach to the mediations she handles.  Jeanne is a prepared, focused, and committed to delivering the best service possible in every case she mediates. Attorneys in cases that she has mediated have often commented on her ability to quickly grasp and understand complex legal and factual issues.

While Jeanne has mediated cases involving a wide variety of subject matters, including contract disputes, bankruptcy disputes, employment issues, personal injury (auto and premises liability), and insurance disputes, her primary focus is on real estate disputes, including broker liability, construction, foreclosure and lender liability, HOA disputes, insurance (including subrogation issues), landlord-tenant, neighbor disputes, premises liability, purchase and sale, receivership, title issues, and trespass and nuisance.
