Jessica L. Rafferty is a passionate advocate for people who, through no fault of their own, are injured.  Whether you are injured in an automobile collision, truck wreck, motorcycle crash, premises liability incident or are the victim of elder abuse in a nursing home or assisted care facility – Jessica will fight the insurance companies to get her clients what is fair. 

“Insurance companies are bullies.  Left unchecked, they will not treat the injured person fairly.  I have never been able to tolerate unfairness.  I will do whatever it takes – whether through settlement, filing a lawsuit or going to trial – to make sure the insurance company does what is right and just for my client.” 

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.   

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 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 is currently training for the Boston Marathon, which will be her 10th marathon!
