Jennifer joined the firm’s complex litigation department in 2012, focusing on appellate practice and providing general legal counsel to closely-held companies.
Jennifer grew up in Missouri and moved to Florida to earn her bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida (human resources with a business minor). After working in management for companies of all sizes and operating her own small business, Jennifer returned to the University of Florida to earn her law degree. Jennifer served as a Managing Editor for UF Law Review and an officer for UF Moot Court. She competed in both regional and national competitions for appellate advocacy and consistently won top honors for her writing and oral arguments. These experiences provided the foundation for the appellate practice she enjoys today, and Jennifer’s previous business experience enables her to truly understand the issues facing her corporate clients.
Before moving to private practice in north Florida, Jennifer served both the federal and state judiciaries, first as a legal extern to Hon. Stephan Mickle of the Northern District of Florida and then as a Trial Court Staff Attorney for the judges of Florida’s Eighth Judicial Circuit. She was selected to Florida’s Super Lawyers Rising Stars List in 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018.
