Jennifer Dickerson has spent her legal career representing individual and corporate defendants in a wide range of litigation matters throughout Illinois and Missouri, including product liability, toxic torts, pharmaceutical liability, complex and class action litigation, personal injury, construction litigation, insurance coverage and nursing home litigation. Since joining Williams Venker & Sanders in 2012, Jennifer has focused her practice primarily in the areas of premises liability, product liability, asbestos litigation and transportation litigation. She works with a variety of clients, including in-house counsel, claims adjusters, third party administrators, small business owners and risk managers.
