Jennifer B. Shomshor is a litigation and trial attorney with Henness & Haight Injury Attorneys.
Ms. Shomshor attended the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada Las Vegas where she earned her Juris Doctorate. Thereafter she began her legal career as a criminal defense attorney, gaining valuable in-court experience representing a wide range of clients facing serious felony and misdemeanor charges. Her successes in the courtroom led her into an insightful career in civil practice on the defense side. After several years honing her litigation skills, and experiencing firsthand the havoc wreaked on injured persons through no fault of their own, Ms. Shomshor felt that her legal expertise would be better applied helping those harmed by the negligence of others. Her understanding of the defense side of litigation gives her an advantage when pursuing claims on behalf of her clients, making her a powerful ally in the pursuit of justice and healing.
She is admitted to practice before all Nevada courts as well as the District of Columbia and several federal courts in and around Washington, DC. As a military spouse to a now retired veteran of the armed services, Ms. Shomshor had the opportunity to enhance her legal skills in both private practice and as a civil servant in the District of Columbia for three years before returning to her home in Las Vegas.
When she is not working, Ms. Shomshor devotes her time to volunteering for various organizations providing assistance and support to veterans in Las Vegas. She delights in cheering on her children at soccer and enjoys developing her skills as a photographer by taking photos of family, friends, and her miniature poodle Sabaka.
