Bret Jessee and Jacob Goldstein Added to the HPS Partnership

HPS is pleased to welcome attorneys Bret Jessee and Jacob Goldstein into the firm's partnership. Together, their trial experience and client advocacy make them invaluable additions to our team here at HPS as well as the clients they serve.

As a member of the firm’s Chicago and Florida teams, Bret Jessee concentrates his practice in the defense of hospitals, long-term care facilities and medical professionals against medical negligence claims. As managing partner Jennifer Ries-Buntain says,“Bret is a great combination of being both a skilled trial attorney and also imminently likeable. He puts clients, witnesses and attorneys at ease. He has faced some of the most formidable opponents in the city and left them wondering what just hit them.”

Jacob Goldstein has been a member of the firm’s litigation, transportation and appellate practice groups since joining the firm in 2006. Ries-Buntain describes him as “our up-and-coming appellate guru who has stood his ground when presenting appellate arguments to legal giants, most notably Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Justice Posner. Many within the firm use him as a resource when creative solutions and impeccable writing are needed. And above all, clients particularly appreciate his attention to all of their details.”
