Jessica L. Rafferty

Greensburg, Pennsylvania

Jessica L. Rafferty is a passionate advocate for her clients. She focuses her practice in the areas of personal injury law, which includes motor vehicle accident litigation and premises liability litigation, and family law.

Jessica has earned the distinction of being admitted into the Million Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, which is one of the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States.  Membership is limited to attorneys who have won million and multi-million-dollar verdicts and settlements, and fewer than 1% of the United States lawyers are members.   

She has also been named to the National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40 list and a "Rising Star" by Super Lawyers Magazine, an honor given to no more than 2.5% of the lawyers in Pennsylvania. 

Jessica was born and raised in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.  After graduating from Greater Latrobe Senior High School, she went on to earn her B.S. in Business Administration (magna cum laude) from Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.  She then went on to receive her law degree from George Mason University School of Law in Arlington, Virginia.  

She has always found great joy in volunteering.  Prior to law school, she served as a youth development volunteer in the United States Peace Corps in Honduras.  Currently, Jessica serves on the board of Animal Friends of Westmoreland as Vice President and also volunteers there.  She is also a member of the Latrobe Youth Commission, which is designed to prevent first-time juvenile offenders from getting an official court record by providing them with community supervision.    

In her free time, Jessica enjoys running and playing the piano.  She has completed 10 marathons, the most recent being the 2018 Boston Marathon!
