Stephanie Jones, Assistant Managing Partner of Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani's Chicago office, has been named as one of Illinois' "40 Under Forty" attorneys to watch for 2020 by Law Bulletin Media, publishers of Chicago Daily Law Bulletin and Chicago Lawyer.
For the past 21 years, Law Bulletin Publishing's “40 Under Forty” list has honored Illinois attorneys who show a passion for their profession, have had a series of successful verdicts, and above all, demonstrate a dedication and commitment to the legal profession. Honorees are chosen through a peer nomination process that evaluates candidates’ career achievements, advancement in their fields and community involvement. Jones was selected from more than 1,500 nominees statewide.
Jones has earned the reputation of having an unmatched work ethic, being fiercely devoted to her clients, and a natural leader. This reputation is illustrated by a key accomplishment - being named Assistant Managing Partner of the firm's Chicago office at the age of 34.
In her practice, Jones defends employers, decision-makers, insurance agents and brokers and businesses in commercial, business, employment, professional liability and environmental/toxic tort litigation matters. From complex product liability litigation matters to negotiating through business disputes, her experience has given her the ability to provide a comprehensive suite of litigation services to her clients.
Jones is also active in her support of women in the legal community. For example, she was one of the first attorneys in the Chicago area to organize and lead a sold-out panel on #MeToo in the workplace. She currently serves as the tresurer of the Chicago Chapter of the Coalition of Women's Initiatives in Law. She is also active in the Women in Law Committee of DRI.
