Jennifer Koo defends automobile manufacturers in warranty and lemon law cases. In the last two years, Jennifer has had extensive experience in the courtroom in the course of her work drafting and arguing nearly 30 discovery motions each month on behalf of Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies, probation officers and district attorney investigators. Additionally, she managed civil rights and Section 1983 cases in state and federal court, drafted demurrers and answers, conducted client and witness interviews, propounded and responded to discovery and drafted motions for summary judgment and motions to quash. She also drafted two appellate briefs.
Jennifer has handled personal injury cases in the areas of automobile accidents, premises liability, uninsured motorist arbitration, medical malpractice and pedestrian accidents. She drafted complaints, conducted discovery (including defending 15 depositions) and negotiated settlement with insurance adjusters and opposing counsel. Her work representing both plaintiffs and defendants has deepened her ability to devise legal strategies tailored to a particular client’s interests and needs.
While in law school, Jennifer served as a judicial extern to the Honorable Steven J. Kleifield of the Los Angeles Superior Court. In this role, she drafted research memoranda pertaining to California civil procedure and a variety of issues of law and city ordinance. She also drafted rulings regarding discovery disputes, defamation, attorney’s fees and contract disputes.
In her free time, Jennifer enjoys hiking and spending time outdoors, reading (autobiographies, fiction and classics) and swimming.
