Jessica Zafonte Associate

Ms. Zafonte’s oral and written advocacy was put to use immediately after graduating law school—she first chaired her first trial only months after passing the bar exam. But rather than just “peaking early,” she continued to further hone the skills key to a successful litigator under some of New York City’s most prominent attorneys and in front of its most prestigious judges.
