Brown, Goldstein & Levy, LLP
Jessica P. Weber is carving out a niche as a top civil rights lawyer.
At Yale Law School, she interned with the American Civil Liberties Union and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.
After law school, she was an appellate advocacy fellow at the Public Justice Center, in Baltimore. And, since 2011, she has worked for the Baltimore law firm of Brown, Goldstein & Levy, where she specializes in civil rights litigation.
Weber also is president of the board of FreeState Justice, a Baltimore organization that provides legal services for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LBGT) community.
While active in working for the LGBT community, Weber said her most significant accomplishment was representing the National Federation of the Blind in a voting rights case that won blind voters in Maryland the right to fill out a ballot without having to rely on others for help.
“Maryland voters with print disabilities now have the same opportunity afforded to all other voters,” she said.
Sharon Krevor-Weisbaum, managing partner at Brown, Goldstein & Levy, said Weber is a rising star in her field.
“Jessica Weber is the leading civil rights lawyer of her generation in Maryland and is quickly becoming one of the leading civil rights lawyers in the country,” Krevor-Weisbaum said.
“I help my clients obtain justice,” said Weber, 35. “I work creatively and collaboratively with clients to tailor a strategy of advocacy to meet both their short and long-term objectives.”
