Shelley M. Jackson Who We Are
 

Shelley M. Jackson, Partner Back to Attorney List
   

Shelley M. Jackson concentrates her practice in the areas of health law, employment law, and insurance coverage, with an emphasis on representing healthcare industry clients in managing risk and navigating administrative proceedings.  She represents and advises clients in cases before Indiana’s state and federal courts and in matters involving various regulatory agencies, such as the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency, U.S. Food & Drug Administration, and U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.  She regularly presents on a variety of healthcare and employment law related topics, including general risk management, professional license defense, telemedicine, employment discrimination, and worker classification.

 

Shelley is active in the community and currently serves as vice president of the Board of Directors for the Hamilton Southeastern Schools Foundation.  She also serves as a member of IndySHRM’s (Indianapolis Society for Human Resources Management) Legislative Affairs Committee and as a representative of the public on Indiana University’s Paramedic Science Advisory Committee.

 

In addition to her legal experience, Shelley holds an advanced degree in secondary education and taught high school English for seven years.  During that time, she participated in content-area curriculum development, Individualized Education Plan and 504 Plan assessments, and worked with a cohort of educators to develop and implement innovative programming for college-bound English language learners.  As an attorney, Shelley has counseled parents and teachers on various education-related matters and continues to remain involved in the educational community.


Shelley is a graduate of Ball State University and completed her Master of Education degree at Indiana Wesleyan University. She graduated in 2007 from Indiana University’s Robert H. McKinney School of Law.
