    Attorney Profile

    Attorney Frances M. Bova is partner with Jacoby & Meyers, LLP, law firm, which has 15 office locations across New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Serving clients throughout New York and New Jersey, Ms. Bova focuses her practice solely on personal injury law, and she drafts all motions, oppositions and appeals for the firm's cases in New Jersey.

    Ms. Bova has more than 27 years of total legal experience, and she has achieved considerable success advocating on behalf of those who have suffered serious injuries or loss as a result of someone else's negligent, careless or unlawful actions. Among her most recent successes, she obtained a settlement of more than $210,000 for a car accident victim following a successful summary judgment motion, and she was able to uphold a verdict of $800,000 on appeal involving a slip-and-fall accident against a landlord defendant.

    She also obtained a settlement of $75,000 in a construction accident case after defeating the defendants' summary judgment motion, and she secured many other substantial settlements and verdicts for her plaintiff clients.

    Prior to focusing on plaintiff personal injury representation, Ms. Bova worked as a medical malpractice defense attorney. She is also a former registered nurse, and her defense experience coupled with her medical training and experience provide her with an uncommon ability to address the medical and legal aspects of her plaintiff clients' cases, enabling her to deliver an unmatched level of representation.

    A 1978 graduate of Herbert H. Lehman College, Ms. Bova received her Master of Science in nursing from Hunter College in 1983. After working for several years as a registered nurse as well as a clinical nursing instructor, she decided to pursue her legal career and attended Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University, where she obtained her Juris Doctor cum laude in 1993. While in law school, she was heavily involved with the International Law Review, serving as its case note and comment editor from 1992 to 1993.

    Ms. Bova is admitted to practice in New York and New Jersey as well as before the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey. She is an active member of the New York and New Jersey State Bar Associations, and she routinely volunteers with the Saint Vincent DePaul Society to provide much-needed food to the indigent members of her community.
