Jill practiced with Thompson & Knight LLP, a large law firm in Dallas, before returning to the state of Connecticut where she grew up. Throughout her legal career, Attorney Hartley has continued to serve international, national, regional and local companies of all sizes both directly and as a result of insurance coverage (Jill has served as panel counsel for several major insurance carriers). As a result, Jill enjoys a diverse and sophisticated client-base. These clients find that Jill is extremely responsive to their needs and is able to provide them with the type of individualized legal advice that they require. As a sole practitioner with former big firm experience, a variety of litigation matters are often referred to Jill by her insurance defense firm colleagues in the event of a conflict.
