I’ve been representing injury accident victims, elders, consumers and small business owners for 25 years. I have great compassion for my clients and I work tirelessly to win compensation for them and help them achieve their goals. My approach to client relations emphasizes communication, education, and early resolution of disputes, where possible.
I graduated near the top of my class in 1988 from Monterey College of Law, where I was one of four finalists in the Heisler Moot Court Competition. A Minnesota native, I earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism and worked as a reporter for the Associated Press and several daily newspapers in Minnesota and Southern California, where I honed my writing and communication skills and developed a deep curiosity about and caring for people that I bring to my legal career.
I’ve lived in Monterey County for the past 30 years. During that time, I’ve raised a daughter (now 23 and following both her parents into a legal career); worked on novel, complex and high-value catastrophic injury cases as an associate attorney with Belli & Sabih in Pacific Grove, California; handled more than 250 arbitration hearings in the Dalkon Shield and Breast Implant litigation cases; bought and remodeled a vintage house in Monterey; and enjoyed the wealth of outdoor activities our beautiful area has to offer. I’ve also been a small business owner and have taught advanced legal writing and analysis at my former law school. My interests include gardening and plant propagation, cooking, reading, music, hiking, and my pet cats.
In 2005, I established the Law Office of Jane E. Bednar. I have tried numerous cases before judges and juries, and have handled scores of additional cases that settled prior to trial. I’ve been rated "Very Good" and am a Level 8 contributor on Avvo.com. I am a certified mediator and volunteer my time as a member of the court-directed mediation panel for the Monterey County Superior Court, as well as for the Mandell Gisnet Center for Conflict Management of the Monterey College of Law.
