Jodi Ossen Bynder, a graduate of UCLA, earned her law degree from Southwestern University School of Law. Both as a law clerk and later as an attorney, Jodi worked with Valerie Vanaman assisting families to obtain appropriate education for their children. Jodi was always drawn to helping people and for a while even wanted to get a Masters in Social Work. She was encouraged by Ms. Vanaman to pursue a law degree instead and incorporate her interest in social work with the practice of law.
Jodi has worked at Newman Aaronson Vanaman since 1997. She finds the work to be extremely rewarding and likes knowing that she is making a difference in the lives of children and families. Jodi is a member of the Los Angeles County Bar Association and the Southern California Special Education Task Force. Jodi is happily married with two children. When not working, she loves spending time with her family, traveling, reading and watching movies.
