Jenny joined the firm in 2019 and works with both the litigation and urban renewal teams. Prior to joining the firm, Jenny gained hands on experience at a local litigation firm. While there, Jenny represented insurance companies, hospitals and professionals in litigation and assisted with managing the firm’s litigation-based focus groups. Jenny also assisted in preparing for trials and successfully participated in her first trial, as second chair for the Defense in a personal injury case. One of Jenny’s greatest strengths as a lawyer is her innate ability to develop meaningful interpersonal relationships with everyone she meets – from clients to experts to opposing counsel. Her clients benefit from her ability to collaborate with others and develop thorough tactical strategies that can lead to early resolution of a case. While in law school at the University of Idaho, Jenny completed a semester in practice at St. Luke’s Health System, served as a judicial extern for then Chief Magistrate Judge Ronald E. Bush, U.S. District Court for the District of Idaho and was a member of the National Moot Court Team, which earned honors for the second-place appellate brief. As a member of the Moot Court Team, Jenny also had the incredible opportunity to argue at the Idaho Supreme Court in front of the honorable Justices Roger S. Burdick and Joel D. Horton. Jenny was raised in Boise and is committed to giving back to the community. Jenny has been an assistant coach for the Boise High School girls’ varsity soccer team since 2013 and is also on the Board of Directors for the Boise Urban Garden School (“BUGS”). Outside of work, Jenny enjoys exploring the Idaho backcountry with her husband and two pups as well as spending time with her family and friends.
