Placerville & El Dorado Hills //  530-295-6400  //

We’re growing!  Becker Nelson Center & James (BNCJ) is pleased to announce the addition of attorney Jessica James and the expansion of our offices into El Dorado Hills.   Jessica brings over a decade of global law firm experience, counseling and litigating for Fortune 500 companies on a broad range of employment issues, including claims of discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, and other wage and hour claims. She regularly advises clients on the full scope of the employment relationship—from hiring to firing and everything in between—including pay equity, background checks, performance management, HR policies and procedures, and other compliance with state and federal regulations. 

Jessica's employment practice adds to BNCJ's strong core of female partners, complements the firm's robust business and civil litigation practice (led by attorneys Kevin James, Crystal Center, and Dave Becker), and ensures local business owners are provided comprehensive and high-quality legal representation. 

BNCJ also offers a full range of trust and estate services from attorney Laura Nelson-Becker.  Laura has been certified as a specialist in Estate Planning, Trust and Probate law since 2017 by the State Bar of California’s Board of Legal Specialization.  She represents clients in estate planning matters, routine trust and estate administrations, as well as contested matters.  Whether you are creating your own trust or need guidance through a difficult family trust situation, Laura will honestly and thoroughly advise you.  Should you choose to litigate, she’ll aggressively pursue your rights and handle all aspects of your case.
