JILL B. NATHAN
After earning her Juris Doctorate degree in 1996, Jill was engaged in Estate Planning and Probate practice until 2007. While still pursuing her legal career, she was a research associate for a U.C. Berkeley project aimed at improving math learning abilities in children of low income families. She expanded her legal knowledge to include public entity defense working on behalf of the Office of the Governor and the State Board of Parole authoring oppositions to inmates’ efforts to be paroled.
In 2012, Jill joined Rivera Hewitt Paul LLP and now enjoys the writing demands of law and motion practice, working with clients to prevail in both the Superior Courts and the Federal District Courts of California. The majority of her current defense work involves arguing for the application of governmental immunities in Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment civil rights claims. Jill is authorized to practice law in the State of California, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California, the United States Court of Federal Claims, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
