Jill Kelly McComsey is an experienced personal injury litigation attorney with particular interest in wrongful death and motor vehicle accidents.  She offers an understanding ear to her clients when they face tragedy, and she finds the ability to provide clients emotional support to be one of the most rewarding aspects of this work.

Jill has a background in science, which serves her well in handling these types of claims.  Jill graduated from the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science (now known as the University of the Sciences) in 1998 with a B.S. in Biology and worked in the biotechnology field for many years prior to law school. 

Jill graduated from Seton Hall University School of Law in 2005 and is licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Jill was a law clerk for two years in the Northampton County Court of Common Pleas before joining Seidel, Cohen, Hof, & Reid, LLC, in 2007.

Jill was recognized by Lehigh Valley Business Group in 2016 as one of the Lehigh Valley's "Women of Influence."  She has also recently been recognized by the Pennsylvania Legal Aid Network, and she will receive the 2017 "Excellence" Award for efforts in organizing and implementing an annual Raise a Glass to Justice event that benefits North Penn Legal Services, an organization serving the underprivileged in our community.
