FLIPPABLE: Jennifer Lunsford for NY-AD135

Jen is a 38 year old resident of Penfield, NY. She moved to Rochester in 2009 with her husband, Scott Hildebrandt, a graduate of Pittsford-Sutherland High School. Jen was raised by a working mom and a stay at home dad, which was certainly not the norm on Long Island in the 1980's. Jen's mom worked first as a secretary and then later as a sales manager at a lamp and lighting manufacturer. Her father, a Vietnam Vet and former NYPD Officer, returned to the workforce as a retail manager once Jen started public school.

Jen graduated from Patchogue-Medford High School and then went on to major in Political Science and Philosophy at Hartwick College in Oneonta, New York, where she graduated with honors. After college she moved to Los Angeles where she worked as a paralegal at the international law firm Sullivan & Cromwell where she had the good fortune to work on a major wrongful conviction case. Jen returned to the east coast to attend law school at Boston University where she concentrated in healthcare law. While in law school Jen won the Deanís Award for Constitutional Law and was appointed as an editor to the American Journal of Law and Medicine.

​Following law school Jen settled in Rochester to start her family and legal career. Soon after she was admitted to practice, Jen began volunteering in the community with the Rochester Teen Court acting as a mediator for cases involving first time, nonviolent teen offenders. A staunch defender of those most vulnerable in our community, Jen has continued to dedicate her time to helping lift up her neighbors and make Rochester a better place to live. She was a regular volunteer at the Center for Youth's Crisis Nursery where she cared for children whose parents were undergoing great hardship such as escaping domestic violence or recovering from unexpected illness. She has volunteered her time with many local charities including the Young Entrepreneurs Academy, Volunteer Legal Services Project, Empire Justice Center and the American Lung Association.

Jen has dedicated her legal career to working with injured and disabled people, like her father. She is currently an attorney at Segar & Sciortino where she advocates for people at some of the most difficult times in their lives. She also serves as the Co-Chair of Lawyers for Good Government, a progressive legal activist group, and sits on the board of the Anthony Poselovich Memorial Foundation, which helps families of young children diagnosed with cancer.
