Lee Jurewitz defended Caltrans against construction site injury claims and construction defect lawsuits and also defended the construction of Petco Park from several lawsuits.
In 1999, Jurewitz began defending construction companies and public entities. In 2002, she joined the insurance defense team at Kolod, Wager & Nolan, where she defended large construction companies and public entities against numerous multimillion dollar personal injury claims. In 2008, she added medical malpractice defense to her areas of expertise when she joined Farmer, Case & Fedor, representing hospitals and an ambulance company. After 10 years of working for insurance companies, Jurewitz brought her extensive civil litigation experience to the Jurewitz Law Group, concentrating exclusively on helping disabled people receive benefits due to them from the Social Security Administration.
Jurewitz is an active member of the San Diego County Bar Association and the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives. She is a sustaining member of the Junior League of San Diego, after serving as an active member for more than 10 years, including two years as a member of the Board of Directors. She is also a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta Alumnae Chapter of San Diego, and their former President and Social Chair. She also served as the Finance Advisor to the Kappa Alpha Theta at SDSU for nine years. She is also a member of the Lawyer’s Club of San Diego.
Jurewitz likes to spend her spare time with her 4-year-old daughter, Ryan, and her husband, Ross. The family enjoys engaging in numerous outdoor activities near their coastal North County home, including swimming at the beach and the local pool, and traveling all over the world. When she’s not busy shuttling Ryan to her various activities, Jurewitz likes to relax with a good book, attend a spin class or go for a run, plan the family’s next international adventure or cheer on the University of Texas Longhorns (particularly during football season).
