Jessica joined Beasley Allen Law Firm in 2015 as a lawyer in our Mass Torts Section. She is working on cases related to testosterone replacement therapy.
Jessica’s focus, testosterone replacement therapy, is intended for men who have a medical condition called hypogonadism, in which the body does not produce enough testosterone due to injury or disease.
However, direct-to-consumer marketing campaigns push products such as AndroGel, Testim, and Axiron, claiming a condition known as “Low T,” or low testosterone, could cause men to experience symptoms such as low libido, muscle loss and weight gain. But a drop in testosterone levels is a natural part of aging in men. Testosterone supplements are designed not for age-associated declines in testosterone, but to treat hypogonadism. Concerns were raised after studies showed that testosterone therapy is linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular events, including blood clots, heart attacks, strokes and death.
Jessica attended New York University, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology and political science in 2011. She went on to attend Washington & Lee University School of Law, earning her J.D. in May 2014. While in law school, she was a member of the Moot Court Executive Board and a board member of the Public Interest Law Students Association. She worked as a student attorney in the Criminal Justice Clinic during her third year, gaining trial experience by defending indigent clients on misdemeanor offenses from client intake through sentencing and appeals in Virginia. Following her second year of law school, Jessica spent a summer working as a law clerk at Motley Rice in South Carolina. After earning her law degree, she worked as a public interest fellow at the Federal Defenders of San Diego.
Originally from Novato, in Northern California, Jessica moved to Montgomery with her husband, Dominik Taylor, who does civil rights work here. They have two golden retrievers and enjoy going on outdoor adventures together.
