About Jessica Goodey
Originally from Illinois, Jessica was raised in a blue collar family. One of five children, Jessica would be a single mother at a young age facing an uphill climb to success. But she was undeterred. She beat the odds, becoming the first in her family to go to college, and the first to go to law school.
A graduate of the UNLV Boyd School of Law, Jessica chose to open her practice here in Las Vegas with an emphasis on helping those from all walks of life. With a focus on personal injury litigation, Jessica has a track record of standing up for those who have the odds stacked against them.
To her, the fight for individuals and families in our community is personal because she’s seen the legal system not live up to its fair and impartial ideal. Jessica has fought to keep Nevadans from becoming just another number in the system and when she is on the bench, protecting the rights of you and those you love will be her top priority.
An AV-Preeminent rated attorney by Martindale-Hubbell, the peer-review rating system that has been used to recognize lawyers for their legal ability and ethical standards for over 100 years, Jessica’s track record of success in the courtroom speaks for itself.
She is running for judge because, as she says, “No one should be waiting on a judge to do her job. Currently, the average time it takes one of my cases to get to trial is 3.5 years. When you are hurt, when something has gone terribly wrong in your life, can you wait over three years just to have your case heard?”
“The job of the legal system is to treat everyone—no matter their background or circumstances—with kindness, dignity, and respect. And we should expect our court system to function efficiently and effectively. That is why I’m running for judge, to make sure the process moves expeditiously and to make the lives of those we serve across our community better through their interactions with our courts.”
Jessica is a member of America’s Top 100 High Stakes Litigators, Rising Stars, 2017 – 2020, the Nevada Justice Association, and the Nevada Bar Association.
She currently lives in Summerlin with her husband, son, and two dogs.
