Jennifer Walker
Co-Founder, Managing Partner

Jennifer Walker is the managing partner and co-founder of Peak Legal Group.  Born and raised in South Jersey, Jen received her Bachelor’s Degree from Princeton University, graduating Magna Cum Laude in 1994.   She received her law degree from the University of Chicago in 1998.

After spending her early years as a trial lawyer handling complex corporate litigation for large companies, Jen realized that what she really wanted to do with her law degree was make a difference in the lives of real people.  Having experienced firsthand the emotional turmoil and financial upheaval that can be caused by the death of a loved one, Jen decided to make a difference by using her legal skills and training to help everyday people get their personal and business affairs in order.

Jen focuses her practice in the areas of Estate Planning and Probate Administration, Business Law and Planning, and Elder Law/Long Term Care Planning.  The common thread in all of these practice areas is their ultimate objective: planning for both the expected and unexpected in order to protect her clients, their loved ones, and their interests.

Clients appreciate Jen for her unparalleled attention to detail, incisive strategic thinking, and ability to break down even the most complicated legal concepts in a way that’s understandable. Jen recognizes that the questions and issues faced by her clients can often seem overwhelming, so she goes above and beyond to help them every step of the way, answering their questions and addressing their concerns in a clear, direct and upfront manner.

Jen feels privileged to build lasting relationships with her clients, and she loves being there for them over the years as their families and businesses grow and their lives change.

In her spare time, Jen enjoys playing golf, hiking, trying new restaurants in and around Philadelphia, reviewing listings and walking through Open Houses to satisfy her Real Estate obsession, and above all spending “non-work” time with her husband Jim (who is Peak’s Director of Client Services).
