JENNIFER KRIKORIAN is an Of Counsel attorney in the Family Law Department, and is resident in our Los Angeles Office. Jennifer Krikorian has extensive trial and litigation experience, including jury trials, pre-trial hearings, arbitrations hearings, and settlement negotiations.
Prior to starting at EP&G, Ms. Krikorian represented public safety members, specifically, police officers and firefighter paramedics, in internal affairs investigations. These investigations included domestic violence allegations and the corresponding criminal defense and DV restraining order cases attached to those claims. Ms. Krikorian negotiated with numerous public entities across the state of California to provide her clients with the best possible outcome for each aspect of their cases, and she has appealed disciplinary decisions all the way through arbitration to the Superior Court via writs of mandamus. Prior to her representation of first responders, Ms. Krikorian worked as a criminal prosecutor in San Bernardino County conducting misdemeanor trials and felony special assignments. Shortly after she began her position as a prosecutor she requested to take charge of the Crimes Against Peace Offices (CAPO) caseload, which composed the bulk of her jury trials. Ms. Krikorian’s jury trial and courtroom experience represent her time both as a criminal prosecutor and defense attorney evaluating all angles and possible arguments of a case, and presenting the relevant facts and case law to both judges and juries.
Ms. Krikorian received her Juris Doctor from the University of Houston Law Center, after spending her first year of law school at Southwestern Law where she earned the rank of top 10%. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Criminology, Law, and Society at the University of California, Irvine, and was pledge master for the Armenian sorority, Alpha Gamma Alpha. She is now a Doctor of Philosophy candidate in Psychology, and intends to use her continued education to advocate for her clients in a way that they feel heard and understood.
In her free time, Jennifer enjoys cars, reading, watching football and basketball, playing tennis, and skiing. If she could live at Mammoth Mountain every winter, that would be her dream.
