Jill Kelly McComsey is a dedicated personal injury litigation attorney, offering her clients over a decade of experience specific to personal injury lawsuits.  Jill has successfully handled countless cases that stemmed from accidents involving wrongful death, trucking, motor vehicle, products liability, nursing home malpractice and others. 

As a mother of two and a daughter who cares for her aging mother and as someone who has overcome her own personal traumas, Jill offers an understanding ear to her clients when they face tragedy.  Jill finds the ability to provide clients emotional support to be one of the most rewarding aspects of this work.  Furthermore, because she understands and can relate to her client’s difficulties, she is able to effectively articulate their struggles to insurance companies and opposing counsel before trial and to those deciding the case at trial.

Jill has a background in science, which serves her well in handling personal injury claims.  She 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 working with DNA 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 for the Northampton County Court of Common Pleas before joining 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 was thereafter recognized by the Pennsylvania Legal Aid Network, receiving 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 legal needs of the underprivileged in our community.
