Jonquil began her carrier defending hospitals against claims of medical malpractice throughout Nevada.  Her practice expanded into defense of physicians and dentists, including the honor of arguing before the Nevada Supreme Court to limit the application of medical battery against a treating physician.  Jonquil also represented professional liability claims against accountants and trustees in state and federal court.  She was always considered a jack-of-all-trades and had the most diverse practice within her firm that ranged from professional liability, general liability and sexual assault claims.  Jonquil also engendered the trust of her clients and was not uncommon to receive a call to address various issues happening real-time.

Currently, Jonquil practices in both Southern California and Southern Nevada handling defense of emergency medical providers in both professional and general liability claims.  In addition, she has experience in toxic tort, class action and product liability.  She handles all aspects of civil litigation, including motion practice, oral argument, taking and defending depositions, expert witness discovery, trial preparation, trial and appeals. 

Every case is a new challenge with new facts and a new perspective on the law.  Jonquil dedicates herself to her clients and truly takes pride in her ability to defend her client’s interests.  She received her Juris Doctor from the University of San Diego, School of Law and was a member of the San Diego Law Review.  Prior to this, Jonquil obtained her bachelor of science in Aerospace Engineering from University of California, San Diego.
