Jennifer L. Weed

Senior Counsel

I enjoy the intellectual challenges in practice law and the opportunity to help others.

Jennifer L. Weed, a member of the firm’s Litigation Group, practices complex commercial litigation in matters involving insurance defense, personal injury defense, medical malpractice defense, and product liability defense. She has represented pharmaceutical companies, hospitals and physicians, insurance companies, and automobile manufacturers. Jenny has filed amicus curiae briefs on behalf of the insurance industry and has argued several cases before appellate courts of significant public interest to that industry.

As a member of Gross McGinley’s Medical Malpractice Defense Group, Jenny works alongside the firm’s team of attorneys and para-professionals to provide thorough legal representation to our hospital, medical practice, and physician group clients.

Originally from the southwest, Jenny previously practiced in New Mexico, representing the only Trauma 1 hospital in the state (University of New Mexico) in medical malpractice cases. After relocating to Pennsylvania, she served as local counsel for Wyeth in diet drug (phen-fen) litigation and for Pfizer in Rezulin litigation. 

In addition to her legal activities, Jenny and her family have opened their home to foreign exchange students during the past several years. Since 2017, she has been serving as a member of the Quakertown Community School Board.
