Jacquelyn Mouquin specializes in assisting Counsel Press clients in their matters within the New York State appellate courts, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit Court, and other federal appellate courts nationwide.

Ms. Mouquin joins Counsel Press’ New York City Staff Counsel and Appellate Paralegals in offering our clients unmatched expertise with their appellate filings. She is a seasoned trial and appellate litigator, having handled and tried cases in Rhode Island Supreme and Superior Courts and the United States District Court for the District of Rhode Island. Ms. Mouquin’s practice focused on complex litigation, professional liability matters, insurance coverage, and mass tort cases. She successfully tried a civil bench trial involving conversion and fraud, supervised large-scale discovery and e-discovery projects, and overturned impermissible zoning board actions. She also participated in the landmark Rhode Island v. Lead Industries Association, Inc. case, in which the Rhode Island Supreme Court overturned the nation’s first jury verdict finding of a public nuisance based on the cumulative presence of lead pigment in paint.

During law school, Ms. Mouquin served as a judicial extern to Chief Justice Frank J. Williams of the Rhode Island Supreme Court. She also served as an intern in the Appellate Division of the Rhode Island Public Defender’s Office, researching and drafting criminal appellate briefs to be submitted to the state’s highest appellate court. Ms. Mouquin even spent time in the United Kingdom as a marshal, sitting with a Crown Court judge to assist in hearing a complex criminal trial. She assisted in legal research into topics such as the United States’ Supreme Court’s use of foreign law in domestic decisions, sexual harassment, and lemon laws.

Before becoming a lawyer, Ms. Mouquin devoted several years working with domestic violence victims, and their families developing educational and interventional programs. She met with New York State legislators to advance legislation to support victims of domestic violence. Ms. Mouquin worked closely with the federal courts, judges and magistrates in monitoring and supervising perpetrators and conducting presentence and bail investigations and reports.

Jacquelyn earned her law degree from Roger Williams University School of Law, with honors, and served as the President of the University’s Moot Court Board. She twice participated in the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition and was a member of the American Inn of Court. Jacquelyn earned her M.S.W. from Syracuse University and was awarded the School of Social Work’s Outstanding Graduate Student Award. She also received her B.S. in Social Work and B.A. in Psychology from Syracuse University, magna cum laude. She was the university’s inaugural recipient of the College of Human Services and Health Professions Award for Inter-professional Collaboration.
