Jax concentrates her practice in employment + corporate law. She began as a law clerk in 2020 before joining the firm as an attorney in 2022. Jax graduated Magna Cum Laude from Creighton University School of Law, where she was inducted into The Order of Barristers, which limits membership to those who demonstrate exceptional skill in trial advocacy, oral advocacy, and brief writing. During law school, she competed on the team that won the 2021 American Bar Association’s Midwest Regional Competition.
