Paralegal

Jazzmine Perkal

Jazzmine began her legal career in 2008, working for a Fortune 500 company in their Legal Department. Following that, she moved on to work for two smaller litigation firms in the areas of personal injury and construction defect. Although she found litigation to be interesting, she ultimately wanted to work in an area of law for which she was truly passionate.

After 29 years of living in California, Jazzmine decided that it was time for a change. In hopes of finding a better work/life balance, she and her family relocated to Colorado. In 2018, she began working at McArthur Law Firm, LLC. She is ecstatic about the opportunity to work in the field of Assisted Reproductive Technology Law, an area for which she has a true passion. As family is of paramount importance to her, Jazzmine enjoys helping individuals and couples obtain their dreams of forming a family.

In addition to her regular workload, she is also an advocate for LGBTQ rights, works with at-risk youth, and is an active member of POW (Protect Our Winters), a non-profit organization that focuses on how climate change is affecting our winter sports.

Outside of work, she enjoys hiking, rock climbing, snowboarding, and cooking vegan meals. She currently resides in Evergreen, Colorado with her wife, daughter, and four-legged family member.
