Meet Our Founders

 
 

Jennifer McGlone

Co-Founder, President & Chief Legal Officer
Jennifer McGlone has spent the majority of her 20-year career fighting to fix systemic issues that prevent consumers from fairly accessing the judicial system.

She received her B.A. from UC Berkeley and her J.D. from Stanford Law School, where she was an editor of the Stanford Law & Policy Review and a fellow with the Stanford Center for Conflict Negotiation. Her specialties include Intellectual Property, Commercial Litigation and Advising Startups. She has held leadership roles at Thelen LLP, Keller, Sloan, Roman, & Holland LLP and Holland Law LLP.

She lives in San Francisco with her wife and their tech-savvy teenage son. Jennifer and her wife, Dee, met at Stanford and were part of the landmark civil rights litigation, In re Marriage Cases, 43 Cal.4th 757 (Cal. 2004), marrying in 2004 when then-mayor of San Francisco Gavin Newsom began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, and then again in 2008 after the California Supreme Court declared access to marriage a fundamental human right, which ultimately led to the United States Supreme Court’s landmark civil rights’ decision Obergefell v. Hodges, 576 U.S. 644 (2015). She has both personal and professional experience with how the legal system changes lives and communities.

"I Co-Founded LawChamps to help individuals, families, entrepreneurs and small business owners -- the people who most often go it alone when they have a legal issue -- find lawyers to protect what matters most. Most lawyers go to law school because they care about larger social issues and want to be of service. Give them a chance to help real people with real problems, and they invariably answer the call. Our platform matches the right clients to the right lawyers and helps everyone win.” - Jennifer McGlone
