The case is recognized as one of the Top Defense Verdicts in California for 2018 by California’s leading legal publication (The Daily Journal) and one of the Top 10 Defense Verdicts in the Country by the only national courtroom television network (Courtroom View Network).

Before joining Keller/Anderle, Jesse was an attorney in two different federal public defender offices, most recently in the Central District of California. Before that position, he practiced civil litigation, was an extern for the United States Department of Justice Criminal Division, and during college served an internship in The White House.
