Past Professional Experience

Jennifer L. Gibbs

Licensed in Texas, Arkansas, and the District of Colorado, Jennifer has over twenty-years’ experience in the insurance industry.  

As a litigator, Jennifer’s practice is focused on first-party property insurance coverage disputes resulting from catastrophic losses such as hail, wind, ice, water damage, collapse, fire, and explosion.  

As an insurance agent and risk manager,  Jennifer specialized in large commercial property accounts, including property management companies, rural electrical cooperatives and publicly-traded corporations.  

Jennifer’s unique and specialized knowledge of property insurance risks from the perspective of both a lawyer and insurance-industry insider allows her to effectively resolve complex disputes on a cost-effective basis for her clients.  

Through talent combined with effort, Jennifer has become an expert and go-to lawyer for her clients in the field of property insurance law. To that end, in 2017 Jennifer received an L.L.M. in Insurance Law from the University of Connecticut School of Law, and was awarded the CALI Award for Excellence in both Property Insurance and General Liability Insurance courses.
