At age five, Jennifer Novak decided she had two goals: to be a lawyer and to be a mom. She’s proud to have achieved both. Jennifer is a second-generation California female attorney, who has practiced litigation across a broad spectrum of fields since 1996. As a Deputy Attorney General with the California Department of Justice, she handled cutting-edge legal issues in matters valued in the hundreds of millions and billions of dollars on behalf of the People of the State of California. Now back in the private sector, she founded this law firm to be of service to people who understand the importance of environmental laws but want to keep the regulatory process fair for those who take compliance seriously. Based upon her experience representing clients ranging from Fortune 500 and national companies, to retirees who operated manufacturing businesses decades ago, she understands the stress and uncertainty that a threatened (or actual) lawsuit brings. Jennifer believes in demystifying environmental laws, providing comfort through stressful times, and working alongside her clients to fight for them every step of the way.
When Jennifer is not managing the firm or representing her clients, you’re likely to find her supporting her son at high school basketball and baseball games, trying to be brave after sending her daughter off to college, volunteering her time to work with students, cleaning up beaches, sorting food donations, and leading the California Lawyers Association’s Environmental Law Section through a pandemic.
