Jaclyn has been involved in the healthcare industry since a young age and upon joining the RLG team she knew she found the right fit for her legal career. She became involved in healthcare while helping and working with her mother’s DME and respiratory care corporation, all while working her way through high school and college as a pharmacy technician.
During her legal career, she has had the honor of defending nursing homes, assisted living and rehabilitation facilities, physicians, hospitals and medical products liability clients. She has a depth of understanding involving all sides of the healthcare industry, from medical billing, compliance, providing services, quality assurance and legal defense from pre-suit to the daily grind of litigation.
Jaclyn has a wide range of litigation experience as an attorney. She has handled cases both at the trial and appellate court levels, involving healthcare, commercial and residential property issues, banking, and bankruptcy issues on behalf of corporate clients as well as family law issues. During law school she spent many hours in the legal clinic fighting against Medicaid, represented by a large international legal firm, for the healthcare coverage of severely mentally disabled and financially disadvantaged in Florida while clerking in the Fourth Judicial Circuit of Florida for the Honorable Judge Elizabeth A. Senterfitt.
Jaclyn’s dedication to the law is only matched by her dedication to her clients. She believes law should realistic, accessible and understandable. She finds her practice most rewarding when using straightforward and value-based methods to assist clients in solving problems and getting ahead of legal issues, while maintaining a focus on their corporate growth and mission.
