In 2018, Jae graduated from Harvard Law School and joined The Jacob Fuchsberg Law Firm to handle medical malpractice and civil rights cases.

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 medical malpractice litigation, Jae has concentrated her practice on civil rights litigation including in prisoner rights, police brutality, and employment discrimination.

In 2021 and 2022, Jae was selected to the New York Rising Stars list by Super Lawyers, recognized as one of the top rated civil rights attorneys.

Jae spearheads the Firm’s prisoner rights practice wherein she represents prisoners who were severely injured while incarcerated, either due to denial of reasonable 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 in the field of evidentiary law.

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.”
