Jenna Roshani Mathias is an Associate Attorney in the firm’s Construction, Products, and Premises Liability team. A 2018 graduate of the Kline School of Law at Drexel University and 2015 graduate of Brandeis University, Jenna has always had a passion for practicing law. As early as Junior High School, Jenna was competing as an “attorney” on her schools’ Mock Trial Teams. She helped her high school team reach the National Competition twice as a closing attorney. While she majored in Psychology at Brandeis, Jenna took numerous legal courses, including “Constitutional Law”, “Law and Psychology”, and, her favorite class, “Investigating Justice”, which centered on the intersection of journalism and the legal system especially as it related to the Boston Globe’s work on the Catholic Church child sex abuse scandal.
Jenna focused throughout law school on cultivating her litigation skills while maintaining a balance of practical courses. She competed on the Kline School of Law’s Nationally Ranked Trial Team at prestigious competitions throughout the country. She was coached by LBK’s own Guy D’Andrea, twice making the semi-finals under his direction. In addition to her time on the Trial Team, Jenna was the recipient of the CALI Excellence for the Future Award/Best Student Performance in Introduction for Trial Advocacy and served as a Teaching Assistant for Advanced Trial Advocacy in Criminal Law. She was also a participant in the Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project, in which Jenna was afforded the opportunity to teach Philadelphia students at Constitution High School about their constitutional rights in school. She coached two of those students to prepare oral arguments based on First and Fourth Amendment rights for a Moot Court competition hosted by the Marshall-Brennan Project. Jenna currently coaches Temple University’s Undergraduate Mock Trial team.
Jenna began her time at LBK through the Co-op program at her law school. She spent four months working as an intern doing a myriad of written assignments, attending depositions, and even aiding in trial preparation. Jenna then became a law clerk for LBK while studying for the Pennsylvania Bar. Jenna now works as an Associate Attorney.
When not focusing on her passion for the law, Jenna loves spending time on beaches near her hometown in Rhode Island or “down the Shore”, attending country concerts, and watching football. Jenna, a first-generation Indian American, is a Guru of traditional Indian dance and an Indian food enthusiast, though, she insists that nobody’s food will ever be better than her grandmother’s.
Jenna is licensed to practice law in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
