Andrea Jarmon has faced domestic abuse from multiple people throughout her life, experienced homelessness and being turned down by shelters, and had an unplanned teenage pregnancy. Despite the incredibly unfavorable circumstances she has dealt with, Andrea excelled in high school, worked her way through undergrad, and went to law school. Now she represents other victims of domestic abuse who feel like the legal system is working against them, just like she did.

In the final On the Road report at the 2016 ABA Annual Meeting in San Francisco, Laurence Colletti asks Andrea to share her story with our listeners. She talks about overcoming adversity, multiple generous people she encountered who helped and encouraged her, and an American Bar Association scholarship that gave her the confidence to pursue a law degree (not to mention helping to pay for it). Tune in to hear her harrowing and inspirational story firsthand.

Andrea Jarmon has been practicing law for nearly 10 years, primarily providing legal representation in criminal and family law cases. Prior to establishing her private practice, Andrea was with the Washington State Attorney General’s Office where she practiced as an Assistant Attorney General in various divisions, among them the Criminal Litigation and Medicaid Fraud Control Units. Andrea is on the board of governors for the Washington State Bar Association.
