Patricia (“Trish”) H. Jun is a bilingual Korean-American business litigation and employment attorney at Mortenson Taggart Adams with experience handling complex commercial cases, employment disputes, and white collar criminal defense actions. Trish has represented clients ranging from small and large companies litigating high-stakes commercial contractual disputes, companies defending against or seeking advice relating to employment claims, companies and executives accused of accounting improprieties, and individual plaintiffs seeking redress for employment violations. Trish also has experience litigating insurance coverage issues and alleged violations of California’s false advertising and Proposition 65 laws.
Prior to joining Mortenson Taggart Adams, Trish practiced at Bird Marella in Los Angeles and clerked for the Honorable Edward C. Reed Jr. in the District of Nevada. At Bird Marella, Trish obtained a $5 million verdict on behalf of a plaintiff who suffered egregious employment discrimination. She was also a core member of the team that handled high-profile civil forfeiture actions involving more than $1 billion in assets. During the litigation, Trish managed the court-ordered sales of several multi-million dollar assets and oversaw related court proceedings in Indonesia concerning the seizure of an asset by U.S. authorities in foreign territory.
Trish is passionate about civil rights and equality issues, with pro bono experience litigating wage and hour actions on behalf of truckers in Los Angeles and assisting low-income individuals with landlord-tenant disputes. In law school, Trish served as the Executive Articles Editor of the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review and was a Team Leader of Harvard Defenders, an organization that represented low-income community members in criminal show-cause hearings.
