San Diego lawyer killed in Las Vegas shooting

Our hearts go out to all the victims of the Las Vegas shooting and their families. Each and every loss is an unspeakable tragedy. We wish the hundreds of people injured a very speedy recovery.

Jennifer IrvineOne of the deaths hit close to home. We at Rocket Matter had the privilege of working with Jennifer T. Irvine, 42, who practiced criminal defense and family law in San Diego. Irvine was also a graduate of the University of San Diego and California Western School of Law.

According to her website, Irvine opened her own firm because she loved working directly with her clients and having a “hands-on” approach to each case. “Jennifer has a genuine passion for assisting clients during what can be an extremely difficult and overwhelming time in their lives,” the site explains. “Jennifer puts her clients’ interests first. She works to find creative settlements; however, she is also a tenacious litigator who strives to achieve the best outcome for her clients.”

Irvine was also very adventurous, hoping to skydive and learn indoor rock climbing this year.

However, what’s most telling is what people say about her. For instance, one of Irvine’s friends for almost ten years told ABC10News that she “literally one of the kindest, sweetest people I’ve ever met. She was always so generous and loving, anybody that came across her path was not a stranger; they were always a friend.” Others on Facebook described her as “selfless,” “full of life,” and a “shining light.” One wrote, “The world has lost an angel.”

There are no words except that our thoughts are with Irvine’s loved ones. We at Rocket Matter are deeply sorry for your great loss.
