Jenna M. Rangel is a partner with Haeggquist & Eck and represents employees in claims involving wrongful termination, discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, and wage and hour violations at work.

To Jenna, every detail matters — and she prides herself on developing and nurturing open, trusting relationships with her clients. Jenna approaches every day as an opportunity to stand up for employees, to help right the wrongs perpetrated by employers, and to provide closure to her clients so they can move forward with their lives. She has represented clients against such employers as the San Diego Sheriff’s Department, Herbalife, and Wyndham, and is currently representing massage therapists in a case alleging iconic San Diego hotel the Grand Del Mar failed to protect female employees from sexual harassment by the spa’s clients. In 2018, together with HAE Managing Partner Alreen Haeggquist, Jenna represented a female scientist in a well-publicized case against The Salk Institute that resulted in a confidential settlement.

A native San Diegan, Jenna graduated in 2010 from California Western School of Law, where her tireless dedication to public interest causes earned her a spot on the school’s Pro Bono Honor Society. During law school, she worked at the nonprofit California Women’s Law Center in Los Angeles on matters relating to gender discrimination in education and Title IX violations. In addition, she assisted in matters relating to women’s health and lactation accommodations for working mothers. While at CWSL, Jenna also completed an internship program in the Juvenile Dependency Division of the Office of the San Diego County Public Defender, where she assisted in the representation of foster children.

Jenna holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration and marketing from California State University-Chico and a paralegal certificate from UCSD. In her free time, she enjoys traveling and spending time with her husband and kids.
