In 2018, Jae graduated from Harvard Law School and joined The Jacob Fuchsberg Law Firm as a law clerk. She assists the senior lawyers on medical malpractice and civil rights cases. Before joining the firm, Jae interned at the Song Law Firm, L.L.C. in New Jersey, assisting in personal injury and other civil litigation matters. Jae is well known for her meticulous research and writing abilities, strong analytical skills, and compassionate personality.

At the Jacob Fuchsberg Law Firm, in addition to handling regular medical malpractice litigation, Jae has concentrated her practice on representing prisoners who are severely injured while incarcerated, either due to denial of necessary medical care or due to denial of adequate security protection.

In these circumstances, Jae has successfully brought claims for deliberate indifference to prisoners’ constitutional rights as well as for medical malpractice and negligence. She has developed a unique knowledge base in interacting with incarcerated clients and overcoming the challenges associated with these cases.

Jae received her BA in Psychology and Educational Studies from Swarthmore College in 2015. She graduated with high honors and was inducted into The Phi Beta Kappa Society. She then attended Harvard Law School, where she joined the Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review as an editor, worked at the Education Law Clinic to obtain appropriate school placements for children with disabilities, and received a Dean’s Scholarship.

As a South Korean national, Jae brings unique cultural understanding and linguistic skills to the firm. She resided in Korea until high school and thus has native-level fluency in both English and Korean.

Jae knows she wants to work on the plaintiffs’ side of cases. She believes in leveling the playing field.

“When an individual is wronged, it is a challenge to take on the corporation, government or institution that may have injured that person. Being there to represent such an individual assures balanced representation.”
