Let’s just say that our experience with Jess was so freaking good! Not only was her class before hand very informative beforehand, she was just so honest with us! She wasn’t trying to get our business, she was just being honest and informative! She actually gave us incredible consult! It was unlike most of our experiences with attorneys in the past and I would HIGHLY recommend Birken Law! AMAZINGLY AMAZING!!!!


We have been working with Jess since early 2019 and it has been nothing but a pain-free, bordering on pleasurable, experience. Her team is incredibly responsive and Jess makes sure that you always feel like you’re her only priority. They simplify processes that would normally feel daunting (we tried filing a non-profit via LegalZoom which was so complex and ended up going through Jess who made it incredibly easy with just filling out easy to understand forms) to help reduce the stress of dealing with a lawyer. We recently had an issue where we approached Jess to help us and instead of taking it on for the easy money, she referred us out to an attorney with expertise in the area. This solidified our belief that Jess wasn’t in it for the money but for what’s best for her clients. We cannot recommend her enough.


I have worked with Jessica Birken and her team for approximately 4 years. She meets your agency where you are at, helps you identify what is needed, where are the gaps in services and how she can assist from a legal perspective to make it a sound and sustainable company. She is thoughtful, insightful, always willing to  explore options by researching issues and collaborating with other colleagues. She is knowledgeable about the law and takes time to assist businesses with understanding the impact of their decisions. I highly recommend the Birken Law Office. If you are faced with a pressing legal issue, whether small or large, call Jessica and her team for a consultation. Meghan, her assistant is amazing, detail oriented and very professional. They will listen and create a plan to address and resolve your issue. C.Spann, ED Non-profit

Jess is a stellar example of what a lawyer should be.  Client-focused, solutions-driven, responsive, beyond competent, and dedicated to her practice.  I have had the pleasure of presenting with Jess at major national conferences, which means relying upon her as a partner to prepare written and spoken materials, and to be reliable, knowledgeable, and collaborative.  She is all of these things.  I would never hesitate to team up with her where my reputation is on the line.

I have also witnessed firsthand Jess’s dedication to her clients.  We have worked intensely on the business of our firms together, and her client focus has taught me many things.  Nowhere else will you find a lawyer committed to solving her clients’ problems (whether that means hiring her or not) and making their experience in working with her enjoyable and rewarding.

In the course of working together on projects, Jess has demonstrated her depth of knowledge of non-profit law, and I would not hesitate for a moment to hire her if the need arises.  I simply cannot recommend her highly enough.


I worked with Jess in the capacity of Board Chair for a neighborhood organization, which has access to her services for paperwork and contracts. Jess went above and beyond, ensuring we had paperwork and documentation necessary to support resolution of two major crises, as well as plan for future org changes. Our organization is stronger and more stable because of her astute contractual acumen. Not only that, Jess continually eased our stress through her positive, attentive and kind demeanor. She was a pleasure to work with! I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking clarity in contractual obligations and sustainable document planning for the future.
