Rusty Hardin’s Comments About Jennifer
Jenny is a young attorney who offers an impressive academic background and several years of experience as an investigative reporter—a beneficial combination for the practice of law. She earned her undergraduate degree in history from Yale, where she was the captain of the crew team and received a number of honors based on her character and support for her fellow students. Jenny moved on to Columbia University’s famed journalism school and after earning her graduate degree she worked as a reporter at newspapers in North Carolina.
She excelled in covering breaking crime news, police departments and the court system, which in part led her to pursue a law degree at Duke University, where she was among the top graduates in her class. After a judicial clerkship for the Hon. James P. Jones in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Virginia, Jenny moved to San Antonio where she gained further legal experience clerking for the Hon. Emilio M. Garza, who sits on the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
Jenny is an avid bicyclist, swimmer, cook, reader, and gardener. With all these interests and experiences it’s not surprising that she still has the inquisitive mindset of a journalist. She can quickly get to the bottom of a story and she has the innate ability to put weave together facts in a clear and concise fashion. Those skills make Jenny a joy to work with, and enhance her outgoing personality that is equally disarming and effective when working with clients or facing a tough opposing counsel.
