Throughout her career, Jenn has worked closely with lawyers with diverse backgrounds and practices, from being an associate at a large national law firm to a partner at a small litigation boutique. This gives her a unique ability to help her clients achieve success—however they define it—in a wide variety of complex and novel matters. She is also a former law clerk to the Honorable Timothy C. Batten, Sr., a District Judge in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. That clerkship honed her writing and analytical skills and gave her invaluable insight into the litigation process from the other side of the bench, helping her be a more effective advocate for her clients.

Jenn earned her undergraduate degree in history and economics from Wake Forest University, then graduated with honors from the University of Georgia School of Law. She has repeatedly been named as a “Rising Star,” a “Super Lawyer,” and a member of Georgia’s “Legal Elite.” In 2019, she was selected by the Fulton County Daily Report as one of fourteen young lawyers in Atlanta who are “On the Rise.” She frequently presents at seminars and writes articles on issues such as employment law, restrictive covenants, workplace best practices, business torts, contracts, and federal courts. Among the organizations and causes she is involved with are the Federal Bar Association (where she serves as an officer of the Atlanta chapter), the State Bar Labor & Employment section, the Atlanta Bar Association, the Georgia Association of Women Lawyers, the Lawyers Club of Atlanta, the Georgia High School Mock Trial Competition (where she serves as a coach for the team from the high school she graduated from), and the Arthritis Foundation (where she serves as a member of the Georgia Leadership Board).
