Jill is a native New Yorker and grew up on the south shore of Long Island. She obtained her BA (major in Psychology) from Hunter College – City University of New York and, thereafter, she graduated from Fordham University Law School/Lincoln Center with her law degree. Jill is currently licensed to practice law in both California and New York.
In 1999, Jill moved to Los Angeles where she practiced securities fraud class action law, representing plaintiff investors for approximately twelve years. During her tenure in litigation, Jill’s biggest case was the Heritage Bonds Class Action, based on a ponzi scheme tailored to prey on Alzheimer’s victims and their families wherein the investment vehicle was municipal bonds. This David and Goliath case in which the small law firm Jill worked for sued major entities, finally settled after six years as one of the top 20 settlements in the country for that year. Unlike many securities fraud class actions, the investors received excellent results and ultimately received approximately fifty cents on the dollar, unheard of in similar defrauded investors cases. Since Hancock Homes Realty was established, Jill has acted as the Real Estate Broker of Record.
Additionally, Jill has significant experience in the home design & renovation aspects of Real Estate. She has designed and managed a number of whole-home renovation projects for an investor client and often assists home-owner clients in managing various degrees of home renovations both in preparation for sale and after purchase.
Jill is a devoted mother of two sons, Jackson Henry and Liam Hudson. Jill is an active parent at the boys' school, Citizens of the World – Hollywood. Jill is also a member of Needlework Guild of America (NGA), a women’s charity group in Hancock Park that supports seven local charities.
