What is it like working with the Childress Firm PLLC?


“Jessica conducted an engaging and informative seminar for our small business Chamber members on Preventing Discrimination & Harassment Claims. We would definitely ask her to speak to our membership again. Jessica is reliable, personable and knowledgeable while holding the audience’s attention with charm and personality.”


– DC Chamber of Commerce

“Jessica is a spectacular professional to work with. She has hosted several sessions for our company and our employees continually praise her expertise, knowledge, personality, and superb engagement around topics that are not typically fun! SYPartners can always rely on Jessica to provide us with amazing service and legal insight that we can all understand. Jessica truly is the best in class, so glad she was referred to us!”


Alma Keita, Senior Manager, People Operations and Benefits

“Jessica Childress is a true professional in every sense of the term. We recently asked her to present a 45 minute webinar on EEOC practices to our members on relatively short notice. She immediately said she would.  In a matter of days following our initial discussion, she prepared an outline, and followed up with a power point slide deck. She asked to set up a preview to determine if we were pleased with what she put together. Her presentation was crisp, well researched and thorough. Throughout the process, Jessica frequently checked in to validate that what she provided, was consistent with what we were looking for.

We found Jessica extremely flexible, and easy to work with. I highly recommend Jessica as speaker/presenter/facilitator for your organization.”

“The Childress Firm presented the Intro[re]spection training to members of our DE&I team and ERG community. The team was really enlightened about their preferences in how they felt respect, shining more light into how they could in turn give respect in order to shape a better workplace and business outcomes. Our session was expertly facilitated by the team at the Childress Firm! We would recommend this training to any organization, regardless of where they are in the journey to inclusion as another tool for organizational awareness and development.”

“I have known and interacted with Jessica Childress since early 2016.  She is a frequent speaker at events in the Washington DC metropolitan area.  Very impressed with her knowledge of the subject matter and specifically based on her speaking abilities, BizMerlin invited Jessica to speak at the DC HR Professionals Meetup group in February 2017.  Jessica spoke on the issues of corporate law specifically as they pertain to Human Resources.  Her event was very well attended and after the 40 minute presentation, Jessica took about 10 questions from the audience.  Again, it was impressive as to how deeply she understands the topics at hand, and yet in the simple words that she can convey those ideas to the audience members who may not be as familiar with the legal issues.

I also attended a couple of other webinars where Jessica spoke, and from the range of those topics, I have been familiar with the breadth of her knowledge, and would love to have Jessica speak at our upcoming events.

Overall, I highly recommend hiring Jessica to speak at your next event.  Her knowledge of the topic, and easy and patient manner of explanation are a unique combination.”

“Jessica Childress is a captivating and engaging speaker who engages any audience she appears before.  Ms. Childress recently served as a panelist for the Greater Washington Area Chapter, Women Lawyers Division, National Bar Association’s (“GWAC”) Diversity in Arbitration panel.  As a panelist, Ms. Childress shared her experience and insight in arbitration as both a private attorney and as a former government attorney.  Ms. Childress’ prospective helped attendees to understand the evolution of arbitration as well as opportunities that may exist for practitioners who wish to practice that area of law.  Ms. Childress is a valuable and necessary addition to any panel she participates in and any audience she addresses.”

“The Office of Tech & Innovation appreciates local businesses that support other local businesses, and we recognize there is a great need for no-nonsense engagement around legal services for small businesses.  Jessica’s remarks at the March 8th, 2017, Why Legal: Foundations for Your Business panel discussion were directly on target for what the small business community in DC needs to know about how and when to engage legal services to help their businesses grow.  Many small business owners are afraid of the cost and complication of legal services, and Jessica broke it down simply.  We hope more business services providers continue to engage the small business community in this way.”

“Jessica Childress [led] a workshop to attending entrepreneurs at one of our events. Jessica shared information about key legal issues that employers with employees in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia needed know in order to be in compliance with state and federal employment laws.  Her message was very informative and well received.  Jessica is clearly an expert in her field and an excellent speaker. We look forward to working with her in the future.”
