Jennie Lee Anderson

Join us in recognizing our Member of the Month!

Jennie has extensive experience representing plaintiffs in employment, antitrust and consumer protection cases, both on an individual and class wide basis. She is a fierce advocate for employees, and has vigorously pursued cases on behalf of employees who have been discriminated against in the workplace.

Additionally, she is also a champion of consumer rights. Over the course of her career, Jennie has been appointed lead or liaison counsel in multiple state or nationwide class actions. She has led litigation against some of the largest corporations in the world to vindicate the rights of consumers who have been cheated by unlawful scams, overcharged as the result of price-fixing schemes or injured by defective products.  


Thanks, Jennie!
