Jen­nifer Wad­hwa is an attor­ney with Rathod Mohamedb­hai LLC. Her prac­tice includes civil rights lit­i­ga­tion and plaintiff’s employ­ment dis­crim­i­na­tion. Jen­nifer cur­rently serves on the Col­orado Bar Association’s Civil Rights Com­mit­tee, the Col­orado Women’s Bar Association’s Pub­lic Pol­icy Com­mit­tee, and the exec­u­tive com­mit­tee for the Minoru Yasui Inn of Court. Through her pro bono prac­tice, Jen­nifer has helped immi­grant vic­tims of human traf­fick­ing and domes­tic vio­lence obtain autho­riza­tion to work in the United States through the U visa program.

Fol­low­ing law school, Jen­nifer worked as a hear­ing offi­cer for the Col­orado Depart­ment of Labor and Employ­ment. In that role, she adju­di­cated hun­dreds of unem­ploy­ment insur­ance appeals. There­after, she entered pri­vate prac­tice with a local firm where she rep­re­sented plain­tiffs in employ­ment dis­crim­i­na­tion matters.

Jen­nifer grad­u­ated from the Uni­ver­sity of Den­ver Sturm Col­lege of Law in 2012, where she earned her J.D. and a work­place law cer­tifi­cate. Dur­ing law school she was a stu­dent attor­ney in the Uni­ver­sity of Denver’s Civil Lit­i­ga­tion Clinic. In addi­tion to rep­re­sent­ing plain­tiffs in employ­ment dis­crim­i­na­tion mat­ters, she also suc­cess­fully rep­re­sented numer­ous vic­tims of domes­tic vio­lence seek­ing civil pro­tec­tion orders. As an intern for Col­orado Legal Ser­vices, Jen­nifer helped nine vic­tims of traf­fick­ing and forced labor with their claim for resti­tu­tion in a fed­eral crim­i­nal case brought against their employer. Jen­nifer served on the Honor Board and was a staff edi­tor for the Crim­i­nal Law Review from Jan­u­ary 2011 to March 2012.

Before law school, Jen­nifer gained nearly a decade of expe­ri­ence in employ­ment law work­ing as a human resources man­ager for var­i­ous start-up tech com­pa­nies and an immi­gra­tion law firm in the San Fran­cisco Bay Area.
