Jodi-NafzgerHow long have you practiced law?

I have practiced law for 14 years.

What drove you to pursue law?

I went to law school because I was interested in a career in public service.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself, or something you enjoy!

I love doing anything outside with my husband and boys. We like to ski, hike, bike, and raft.

How long have you been involved with the Women’s and Children’s Alliance and how did you first get involved?

I started working with the WCA in 2012 in my role as the pro bono director at Concordia University School of Law. WCA staff and I worked together to establish the Law Student Advocate Intern program. Students who have completed the WCA’s training can assist volunteer lawyers at walk-in clinics and in petitions for protection orders.

What drives your passion for continuing the great work that you do with the Women’s and Children’s Alliance?

I prosecuted domestic violence cases as an Assistant City Attorney. I understand how living with violence can affect a family long term and create life-changing legal issues. I am committed to helping victims of violence lead a safe and healthy life.

What is something you wish more people knew about the issues you face when helping domestic abuse and sexual assault survivors? 

I have a hand in shaping future lawyers. I am rewarded most when I can help a law student nurture their passion to help victims of violence. Some of my students have been touched personally by domestic abuse or sexual assault. I appreciate the opportunity to work collaboratively to break the cycle.
