Jennifer is originally from the New York/New Jersey area. After obtaining a B.S. in political science from The College of New Jersey, she attended New York Law School. During that time, she completed the International Law Program in Madrid, Spain, and she completed an international legal internship in Dublin, Ireland, where she concentrated on the areas of insolvency and international and civil tort litigation. During the same period, Jennifer co-authored an article for publication on the Brussels Convention and international business, and she co-authored a report for the 21st Session of the United Nations’ Committee on the Rights of the Child.
After obtaining her J.D. from New York Law School, Jennifer became a medical malpractice defense attorney in Manhattan before she began practicing law in New Jersey, where she dedicated her next fifteen (15) years as an insurance defense litigator and trial attorney, who concentrated her practice in the representation of insurance companies and their insureds in diverse and complex claims and civil litigation. Her practice includes representing large, national insurance carriers and retailers in connection with the defense of complex construction defect litigation; catastrophic personal injury cases; products liability cases; defense, indemnification, and hold harmless claims; contract and additional insured disputes; premises liability cases; and defamation, libel, and false arrest cases; among others. As a result, Jennifer routinely appeared in state and federal courts, and she often argued before – and had several briefs and opinions published by – the Appellate Division of the State of New Jersey.
In 2016, Jennifer and her husband, Shane, relocated from Princeton, New Jersey to Scottsdale, Arizona. Since that time, Jennifer has become the owner and managing member of Jennifer L. Tierney-Reed Legal Consulting Services, PLLC; she continues to work in her role as “of counsel” with the law firm of Hill Wallack LLP; and she is an active member in the Scottsdale Bar Association, among other organizations.
Jennifer enjoys spending time with her family and friends, hiking, traveling, and taking advantage of all of the events and attractions that the Scottsdale area has to offer.
