Jennifer L. Shipman
Jennifer attended Wichita State University and graduated Magna Cum Laude, earning a Bachelor of Science in Health Services Organization and Policy in 1998 and a Masters in Business (MBA) in 2001. After completing her graduate degree, Jennifer attended Washburn University School of Law and focused her studies on children and family law. In her last semester, she devoted her time to Washburn’s Children and Family Law Clinic where she provided free legal services to members of the Topeka community who could not afford to hire a private attorney. Jennifer graduated with her Juris Doctor in 2004.
Jennifer has a successful career practicing law in a mid-size, civil litigation law firms and sole practice in the areas of commercial litigation, collections, and creditors’ rights where she regularly appears in several courts in Kansas and Missouri. Her legal experience has taught her the importance of establishing and maintaining good relationships with court personnel and judges, even in the face of heatedly adversarial proceedings where an opposing attorney had an interest in negatively depicting her or her clients. Jennifer joined Blitt and Gaines in May 2018.
Jennifer has a reputation for having patience, attention to detail, openness to the concerns of others, effective communication and a focus on positive outcomes for her clients. She has been a member in good standing with the State Bar of Kansas since 2005 and the State Bar of Missouri since 2006.
