Jordan focuses her practice on complex product liability litigation. Her experience includes all key phases of litigation, including initial case assessment, discovery, motion practice and trial preparation. She has worked on the Engle-Progeny litigation and also has experience with regulatory counseling. She has counseled clients on risk assessment, responses to FDA and USDA inspector requests, product recalls and field corrections, FTC guidelines and labeling issues.
Pro bono work is important to Jordan. She has represented clients in family court and worked on a team to represent an inmate in a Section 1983 action that was tried in federal court. Additionally, Jordan regularly seeks opportunities to mentor others, and is a founding member of the firm’s Junior Women’s Management Council. Before attending law school, she worked at a charter school in Boston, Massachusetts, where she tutored low-income middle-school students in math and English and helped with school operations.
