Jenna Forster works to protect public entities and combat consumer fraud through complex litigation.
Jenna is on the firm’s team representing dozens of states, cities, towns, counties and townships in litigation targeting the alleged deceptive marketing and over-distribution of highly addictive opioid drugs. Jenna gained valuable experience in complex mass tort litigations as an associate in the San Francisco office of a multi-national plaintiffs’ firm. There, she represented governmental entities and personal injury clients in nationwide litigation against JUUL Labs and Altria, alleging that they misled the public about the safety of their products and engaged in predatory marketing of e-cigarettes to children. Jenna was also a member of the team that represented the San Francisco Unified School District in the first MDL bellwether trial, which resulted in a global settlement with Altria that resolved nearly 10,000 cases and recovered $235 million*.
Prior to law school, Jenna worked as a paralegal with Motley Rice’s public client team, where she supported attorneys on mass torts and consumer protection litigation.
While completing her legal studies, Jenna was the executive editor of the California Law Review and the Berkeley Journal of Gender, Law & Justice, as well as a founding board member of the Berkeley Plaintiffs’ Law Association.

Dragonette Award for Civil Trial Practice, and was admitted into the Order of the Coif and the Order of Barristers.
