Jessica Smeriglio concentrates her practice on general liability, premises liability, auto negligence and construction accidents in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

Before joining the GMR team, Jessica worked as a commercial claims specialist at a major national insurance company for six years. Her insurance industry background includes the investigation and evaluation of coverage and liability issues with auto, premises and general liability claims. This extensive insurance experience has provided Jessica with the unique ability to look at a case differently than the average defense attorney. As she has handled claims and lawsuits from both sides of the spectrum, she knows what clients need and expect. 

Jessica also defends some of the region’s top health systems and parlays her claims investigation skills into service that her clients find to be beneficial to their business practices from the highest corporate levels to the day-to-day ground level employees. In addition, she regularly serves as an Arbitrator for the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas.

Jessica was named a 2020 Rising Star by Super Lawyers and named “One to Watch” by Best Lawyers for 2020 and 2021. A Super Lawyers selection is an honor reserved for those attorneys who exhibit excellence in practice. Best Lawyers put together a list of “Ones to Watch” to recognize lawyers who are earlier in their careers and exhibit outstanding professional excellence in private practice.
