Meet Jennifer Duran, Firm Owner and Attorney at Smith Duran Law. Her Practice Focuses On Workers’ Compensation Cases and Personal Injury Law

Why is the insurance company not holding their end of the bargain? We pay insurance to guarantee us coverage when the inevitable accident happens. Our firm prevents Labor and Industries and other insurance companies from minimizing your pain; your healing should not be marred with obstacles in obtaining any access to health care. This is central to our practice because Jennifer experienced delays in accessing orthopedic doctors and therapists when she was treated for scoliosis. This personal experience fuels her to be aggressive in pursuing her clients’ goals in the courtroom and in settlements.

You did not ask for this to happen; so how do you make the best of your circumstances? Schedule a free consultation to set realistic expectations of what your case is worth. Whether you return to being pain-free or have a permanent injury we can represent you or equip you to represent yourself. Our office prides itself in returning 100% of the client calls at the end of the day. We litigate complex matters at the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals and to Superior Court. We advocate at all times including obtaining retraining, vocational benefits, adjusting wages, and mediation.

Whether you suffered an injury on a construction site, a motor vehicle accident, or an injury at work we will advocate for your compensation. Jennifer has overseen a wide range of cases including those involving traumatic brain injury, spinal fusion surgeries, reconstructive joint surgeries as well as catastrophic injuries.

Jennifer attended St. Mary’s School of Law in San Antonio Texas. While in law school she volunteered more than 100 hours to pro-bono causes and participated in the law school’s clinic program. Jennifer is a member of the Washington State Bar Association, Pierce County Bar Association, Thurston County Bar Association, and an Eagle member of the Washington State Association for Justice.
