Attorney Jennifer Webster, an experienced trial attorney, joined Edgar Snyder & Associates after 10 years at a boutique plantiffs firm where she focused on personal injury and medical malpractice. Prior to that, she practiced insurance defense work.

She is passionate about practicing personal injury law because of the impact it has on her clients as well as the community at large.

I became a trial attorney because I wanted to give a voice to the injured and to help them navigate what can be a complex system during an extremely vulnerable time. I believe it to be incredibly important and necessary for people to have their day in court to effect positive change, and in turn, to create a safer community.Attorney Webster
