Attorney Jill Whitbeck comes from a blue-collar background, being the first in her family to achieve a Bachelor's degree (from California Lutheran University in 1990) followed by her Juris Doctorate (from Pepperdine University in 1993).  She worked her way through both college and law school, primarily doing clerical work often in the legal field.  At all levels of her education, she participated in extracurricular activities and excelled in public speaking and debate competitions. 

Ms. Whitbeck has been licensed in Nevada, in good standing, since October 1993.  As an attorney, Ms. Whitbeck has in the past worked for Laxalt & Nomura (an insurance defense firm in Reno), Edward M. Bernstein & Associates (a large plaintiffs personal injury firm fomerly in Reno), and the Law Offices of White & Meany (a plaintiffs firm focusing on medical malpractice and mass torts, formerly in Reno).  Ms. Whitbeck founded the Law Offices of Jill K. Whitbeck in Reno in December, 2000.  The firm represents clients in family law matters, and plaintiffs (those injured and their families) in personal injury matters.  Presently, while continuing to operate her solo practice part-time to assist existing clients, Ms. Whitbeck is working for Washoe Legal Services, assisting victims of domestic violence with protection orders and family law matters. 

Ms. Whitbeck is married to Christopher Whitbeck, and they have four children.  She is on the Board of Directors at Washoe Valley Christian Church where she assists with youth programs.  

With her background and life experiences, Ms. Whitbeck prides herself on understanding her clients from their own perspective, rather than looking down on them and their circumstances as she has seen other lawyers do.  Ms. Whitbeck consistently provides professional, caring service to her clients at the highest level of integrity.
