Jessa Victor is a Shareholder in Hawks Quindel’s Madison office. She joined the firm in 2018 and specializes in employee benefits matters, representing individuals with claims for short- and long-term disability insurance, health insurance, life insurance, and retirement benefits. As a disability insurance attorney, Attorney Victor advocates for disabled workers who have been denied benefits under their employer’s group disability insurance plans, and has specialized experience in handling claims for benefits based on mental health disabilities.

As someone who has experienced the effects of disability in her own family, she understands the need for compassionate representation during such challenging times. Attorney Victor values the importance of a client-focused practice, and in addition to keeping clients informed, she is attentive to their input so as to ensure they are not passive observers in their own cases.

When not at work, Attorney Victor is an outdoors enthusiast and elite runner, having competed at the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials in the Marathon. She is also an experienced ultra marathoner and coaches track and cross county for Madison East High School.

Attorney Victor has represented clients in Wisconsin Circuit Courts, the Wisconsin Court of Appeals, the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern and Western District of Wisconsin, and the U.S. District Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. She is a member of the Dane County Bar Association, the the Disability Rights Bar Association, and the Legal Association of Women. She also serves on the board of directors for Central Midwest Ballet Academy and NAMI Wisconsin.


Attorney Victor earned her law degree from the University of Wisconsin in 2016. During law school, she served as a Senior Managing Articles Editor for the Wisconsin Journal of Law, Gender & Society. She also worked for the Family Law Project at the University of Wisconsin’s Frank J. Remington Center, representing incarcerated clients in a wide range of family law matters. Attorney Victor received several honors throughout her law school career, including the John J. Walsh Scholarship, and the Women’s Law Student Association Scholarship.

Attorney Victor received her undergraduate degree in Social Welfare and Justice from Marquette University, where she also competed as a Division I athlete in Track & Field and Cross County, earning a seat on the Big East Conference’s All-Academic Team.

Long Term Disability Insurance Client

I recently acquired the services of Attorney Jessa Victor at Hawks Quindel, who did a superb job on my case. Attorney Victor and the rest of the team went above-and-beyond when it came to working on my case. All of my phone calls were returned in a timely manner, and if there was anything I needed to know about my case, I was informed right away. If you’re looking for a good law firm to represent you, I highly recommend Hawks Quindel.
