Jackie Thompson, Associate

Jackie was raised in San Diego, California, and earned her bachelor’s degree, magna cum laude, in print journalism from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Before law school, Jackie worked for Cosmopolitan magazine, MTV News, and DirecTV. While attending the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, Jaclyn interned for former Chief Justice Nancy E. Rice of the Colorado Supreme Court, was an editor for the Denver Journal of International Law and Policy, and served as a teaching assistant for Civil Procedure and Advanced Legal Writing classes. Jackie was also a president of the Asian Pacific American Law Students Association.

Before joining the firm, Jackie began her legal career working for an international law firm counseling corporate clients in complex civil and commercial litigation, including products liability. Her clients included a global science company, a global medical device manufacturer, a multinational chemicals manufacturing corporation, a top national insurance company, and a national theme park. Jackie was an integral part of a multi-district litigation defense team that secured several defense jury verdicts for one of the world’s largest orthopedic medical device manufacturers, which ultimately led to a global settlement resolving a majority of the plaintiffs’ claims. Next having worked on the plaintiff side, Jackie understands the specific pre-litigation and litigation issues and arguments that arise and is well versed at defending her clients against such matters. Having worked on both the plaintiff and defense sides, Jackie prides herself on helping clients navigate the often-daunting legal world.

When Jackie is not practicing law, she can be found doing yoga, playing tennis, honing her green thumb, or walking her Yorkshire Terrier with her husband.
