Bullard Law is saddened to announce the death of our dear friend and colleague, Jennifer Sabovik.   

Jenn joined the firm in 2007 as an associate and quickly became an integral part of our labor practice.  Jenn loved labor law.  She especially enjoyed tracking the twists and turns of the National Labor Relations Board, and was an invaluable resource for obscure NLRB precedent – typically accompanied by entertaining commentary.

Jenn’s hard work and sharp intellect earned her partnership status in 2012.  In the following year, Jenn’s growing experience with NLRB and state agency hearings, federal Circuit Court appeals, labor arbitrations, and representation elections led to her recognition as a Super Lawyers Rising Star.  Her perseverance and skill on behalf of clients resulted in significant victories in the face of daunting challenges.

Jenn will be deeply missed.  In addition to her talent as a lawyer, she was an excellent source of restaurant advice and an avid supporter of her USC Trojans.   She loved to travel and share her often amusing stories of adventures on the road.  But most of all she loved her son Max, now almost 4, radiating deep affection and tenderness whenever she spoke of him.

Jenn’s courageous battle against brain cancer was an inspiration to us all.  From February 2013 to her passing on October 29, 2015, Jenn fought every day.  Her dignity, determination and sense of humor in facing down this challenge will never be forgotten.

A memorial service for Jenn will be held at 2 pm on Thursday, November 5 at the Riverview Cemetery Funeral Home, 0300 SW Taylors Ferry Rd.  The firm will be closed on that afternoon to honor her memory.  

In lieu of flowers, Jenn’s family requests that you consider donations to the National Brain Tumor Society or to the college fund set up for Max.
