Recognized as a Fellow of the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers, Jennifer Saulino possesses an unusual ability to translate complex legal theories into effective advocacy before judge and jury. As a premier trial lawyer, she specializes in synthesizing extensive case findings into crisp themes, uncovering late, but critical facts, and shaping successful strategies that position clients for optimal results. With experience trying more than ten complex federal cases to jury verdicts, and experience in more than a dozen federal courts as well as state courts across the country, individuals and corporations consistently seek her leadership when faced with tough litigation.

Prior to returning to private practice, Ms. Saulino served for nearly seven years as a prosecutor at the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Criminal Division, Fraud Section, where she held a number of positions, including Assistant Chief of the Section. During her time at the DOJ, she led trial teams as first chair in some of the Fraud Section’s most difficult and complex cases.
