Jackson Spencer Law founder Jennifer Spencer has been selected for inclusion in the 2020 edition of The Best Lawyers in America© for her work in commercial litigation. This year represents the sixth consecutive year that Ms. Spencer has been included on the list, which is based on a peer-review system.
“It’s an honor that my professional colleagues think so highly of me that they would place me on Best Lawyers,” said Ms. Spencer. “As attorneys, we take our client relationships very seriously, so the fact that my peers would trust their clients’ most sensitive issues to me and my firm is incredibly meaningful.”
The founder and managing partner of Jackson Spencer Law, Ms. Spencer dedicates her employment law practice to helping employees who have been treated unfairly in the workplace. She has been featured on multiple news outlets in Dallas for her advocacy on behalf of a city employee who filed sexual harassment claims against her supervisor, the Dallas County health director.
Best Lawyers is the latest in a series of accolades for Ms. Spencer, who has also appeared on the annual Texas Super Lawyers list, the Top 50 Women Lawyers in Texas by Thompson Reuters, and D Magazine’s list of the Best Lawyers in Dallas.
To begin the peer review process, Best Lawyers opens nominations to all lawyers. Following the nomination process, they request feedback from previously listed lawyers, asking how likely they are to refer to a case to the individuals who have been nominated. Honorees are selected after a review of responses and the completion of an eligibility check. Payment for exchange of inclusion on the list is not permitted.
