“A forever thank you for believing in me and helping me through what I thought was going to kill me. If it wasn’t for you and women like you I wouldn’t have the tools to learn how to believe in myself and find my voice again.”

From counselor and friend to aggressive legal advocate, Jessica Pride has been the lead lawyer on behalf of women who have been sexually assaulted for more than a decade.
Headquartered in San Diego, Jessica represents women throughout California, and through a co-counsel relationship, may represent women throughout the U.S. But regardless where you live, she is here to listen to your story if you just need someone to talk to.
Her passion for the law stems from a lifetime of watching her stepfather, an attorney, and her disdain for bullying. After graduating from the University of California, Irvine, she felt earning a law degree from the University of San Diego School of Law was a natural progression.
In law school, she discovered a talent for helping people in civil litigation suits, earning a spot doing so at one of the nation’s largest personal injury firms, Girardi & Keese in Los Angeles. She moved on to San Diego’s Casey Gerry law firm, where she fought for her first sexual assault victim and felt the personal reward and vindication that come with helping a victim seek justice — and succeeding.
Jessica decided to continue helping victims of sexual assault by offering legal assistance to San Diego’s Center for Community Solutions, where she now serves on the Board of Directors. Handling sexual assault cases then blossomed into her legal passion.
Jessica understands the anguish of sexual assault, and she knows it doesn’t have to define your life.
As a member of the Pride Law Firm, she has encouraged victims to pursue their cases in civil court. Whether taking on a culpable individual, corporation or municipality, Jessica has used the civil court system to send strong messages that result in serious changes.
