Jennifer M.K. Willis is Senior Counsel 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 on obtaining 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.

Jennifer joined the Firm in 2017 after practicing for several years in Northern California and on the Wasatch Front in Utah. During her more than 16 years of practice across three states, Jennifer has focused her practice representing clients in the areas of dependency defense, corporate representation (both in-house and as litigation counsel), trust/estate and wealth transfer planning, federal estate tax return preparation and filing, common interest community litigation, trust and probate administration, and litigation, family law, and guardianship administration. Jennifer has become particularly adept at handling contested guardianship litigation matters, developing extensive knowledge and understanding of recent changes in Nevada’s guardianship statutes and the court’s treatment of those laws on a case-by-case basis.
