Jessica J. KinnardJessica J. Kinnard

Passionate Advocacy. Personalized Representation.

Jessica J. Kinnard is a Nashville native who grew up watching her father fight for the injured and the wronged and has leveraged what she’s learned to create a reputation of her own. At the firm, she represents clients in a range of injury and civil litigation cases, including those involving car accidents, health care, medical malpractice, birth injury, and wrongful death.

Jessica’s practice is driven by her passion to help people and protect their rights, especially average, everyday citizens who find themselves in vulnerable situations, and parties to legal battles against some of the most powerful and profit-driven corporations.

In addition to leveraging her legal insight, Jessica has cultivated an extensive working knowledge of the areas in which she practices, including complex fields of medicine, health care, and engineering. This allows her to understand where the negligence occurred and why, and how to best represent her clients. Her ability to look at the humanity and psychology of events surrounding her clients’ claims further allows her to express them perceptively before the court and jurors.

Jessica is an invaluable asset to Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge, and truly caring and compassionate advocate committed to helping clients obtain a sense of closure as much as full and fair compensation. She prioritizes personal attention and takes the time to explain the law to victims and families to help them feel empowered in the process.

When not passionately pursuing justice for her clients, Jessica can be found outdoors hiking and traveling, or enjoying her singing, music, and books.
