At Jorgensen Gibbons, our passion to help people who are injured and disabled is infectious. Through the years, our children have grown up around our practice, interacting with our clients and staff and have grown to love and respect what we do for others. Sharon and Lynn have been both surprised and delighted that their children have decided to follow their path to careers as attorneys so that they can use their talent and intellect for the benefit of the firm and our clients. They have invested their efforts, love and passion into their children over the years and that will pay off in spades as their children are the future of the practice they have grown.
Grady Jorgensen is Sharon's oldest son. He graduated from FSU and then went on to received his J.D. from FAMU Law in Orlando. He has been a practicing associate with the firm since 2015. Grady loves the fact that he has the benefit of both his Mom and her long time partner, Lynn Gibbons' tutelage and guidance with new issues that come up as he practices in personal injury, workers compensation and Social Security Disability cases. Because his practice is so varied, he deals with complex issues on a daily basis and is frequently practicing his skills in court and in depositions. This experience has made him grow in his proficiency very quickly.

She then worked as a paralegal for the firm handling workers compensation cases until she began law school at her Mom's alma mater, Stetson University College of Law in Gulfport, in the Fall of 2015. Her work as a paralegal inspired her to hone her skills as an advocate so that she can be a voice for those who need help when they are going through tough times. In December of 2017, she earned her JD from Stetson. Katelynn is actively involved as an associate covering workers compensation, Social Security Disability and personal injury clients.
