Though born in Hawaii, Jessica R. K. Dorman is a San Diego native at heart. Jessica grew up in Santee, California, a suburb of San Diego, with her parents and younger sister. Her parents instilled a  sense of pride in one’s own work – “Anything worth doing, is worth doing right, the first time.”

Jessica made efforts to participate and lead school events to help her fellow students and schools. She served on the Associated Student Body (student government) and as the Treasurer of the school’s German Club. Jessica was also an avid softball player playing from a young age through high school.

Though admitted to the University of California, Jessica chose to attend Grossmont Community College before transferring to the University of California, San Diego.  After graduating from UCSD with a Bachelors Degree in Economics: Management Science, Jessica attended Thomas Jefferson School of Law.

During law school, Jessica made the most of her time, participating and serving on the executive board of the school’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Team, and completing several internships in Bankruptcy, Personal Injury, Civil Litigation, and Criminal Defense. Jessica earned top grades and several awards for her achievements during law school.

After taking the California Bar, Jessica worked for a local family law attorney before finding a home at Hyde & Swigart in early 2012. While at Hyde & Swigart, Jessica has aggressively and successfully defended her clients in debt lawsuits as well as held debt collectors accountable in federal and state actions for unfair debt collection. In one particular case, Jessica obtained a $100,000 settlement for her clients for unfair debt collection practices.

Jessica has made it her goal to spread the word about consumer rights and has presented to groups and organizations including Elder Law and Advocacy, The San Diego Bar Association (Bankruptcy Section),  and California Western School of Law.

In her spare time, Jessica enjoys spending time with her husband, family, and pets.

Hyde & Swigart has helped thousands of consumers in California, Colorado, Minnesota, Nevada, and Arizona with their legal issues, and we have never seen two cases that were identical. You should never assume your situation is the same as something that is described on this web site, or that you read elsewhere on the Internet. Each situation is unique, and in our opinion, each situation needs to be thoroughly and independently reviewed by a competent consumer rights attorney. While we are happy to do that for you for free, we cannot do that solely on this web site. Even our evaluation forms are mere starting points. You should never assume your case, your situation, or your set of facts, are covered in their entirety by this web site. If you have questions about your potential case, we will be glad to discuss them with you at no charge. However, do not act, or fail to act, simply because of something you read or see on this web site. Click here to read more.
