Jennifer M.K. Willis is an associate with the Firm practicing in asset protection and business planning, and trust and probate litigation.
Jennifer is originally from California. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of Utah in 2001 with dual B.S. degrees in Political Science and Speech Communications. She received her J.D. from Boston College Law School in 2004. While attending law school, Jennifer worked for Greater Boston Legal Services, where she was a Student Practitioner assisting battered women obtain restraining orders and divorces from their batterers.
On graduating from law school, Jennifer returned to California where she worked first as court-appointed counsel in dependency proceedings, assisting parents to reunify with children who had been removed for abuse and neglect. Jennifer’s real love is estate and wealth transfer planning, and estate and gift taxation and planning. In fact, she spent several years with a boutique firm in Northern California engaged exclusively in this practice. She was unable to turn down an opportunity to return to Utah, where her family is located, and jumped at an offer to work as In- House Counsel for a payment processing company in Utah County. Seeking warmer climes and a chance to return to trust and estate practice, Jennifer relocated to Las Vegas to join Hutchison & Steffen.
When she isn’t working, Jennifer spends her time raising her two daughters and acting as shuttle driver for their various activities and frequent trips to Disneyland. She and her family also enjoy hiking at Mt. Charleston and attending midnight showings of every Star Wars and superhero movie that Hollywood can churn out.
