Jennifer A. Lotz, Attorney at Law
(Labor and Employment – Employer Side) Of Counsel
Hi. I’m attorney Jennifer A. Lotz, or “Jen” to my family, friends, and clients. I am married to Bob Bergman, who is the owner of the firm.
I am a Chicago native, born and raised, and I have lived here in the Santa Clara Valley since 1995 when I moved here to attend law school at Stanford. I practiced as a labor and employment counseling and litigation attorney with Littler Mendelson, Morrison and Foerster, Bergeson LLP and Hopkins & Carley, until leaving that practice area to affiliate with Bob’s firm in May of 2007 as “Of Counsel.” Several years ago I returned to the practice of labor and employment law, doing contract work for several different law firms in the Bay Area. I am now an associate with Curley, Hurtgen and Johnsrud in Menlo Park.
Like my husband Bob, I have a theatrical side, but as a producer and director. I worked with Nomadic Theatre as an undergraduate at Georgetown University, and have worked with the Stanford Savoyards, Sunnyvale Community Players, and Lyric Theatre (Gilbert & Sullivan Society of San Jose). I also serve on the Georgetown University Admissions Ambassadors Committee by interviewing local high school students as part of the admissions process for the school.
I have been practicing law since 1998, when I was admitted to the State Bar of California. My resume is below:
B.A., Georgetown University (magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, Rhodes Scholarship Semi-Finalist for the State of Illinois)
J.D., Stanford Law School (Hilmer Oehlmann, Jr. Award for Excellence in Research and Legal Writing)
