Jessica A. ZeletesAssociate | Minnesota
"“No matter how bad you think you have it, there's always - always somebody who's got it way, way worse.”
Jess represents clients in in construction, personal injury, and tort suits. Prior to joining McCollum Crowley, Jess was the judicial law clerk for a judge in Mankato, Minnesota, where she was exposed to various areas of law and learned what judges expect from professional and skilled attorneys.
Jess grew up in Colorado and Minnesota, bouncing back and forth between the two states throughout her school-age years. She graduated from college at CSU and went on to law school, graduating with honors from Emory Law in Atlanta. Jess believes that the key to effective communication and trust with clients is the ability to relate to them on some level and understand their concerns, and her well-rounded background fosters these relationships.
Outside of practicing law, Jess prefers to spend time with her rescue dog and try new restaurants with her friends and family. Jess always makes time for summer softball and kickball teams as well as a good adventure.
