Jenny attended the University of South Carolina for both undergraduate and law school. Upon graduation from law school, Jenny completed a one-year circuit court judicial clerkship in Greenville with the Honorable John C. Few, South Carolina Supreme Court Justice. Jenny also assisted Justice Few in teaching the rules of evidence and its many intricacies to law students.
After her clerkship, Jenny was an assistant solicitor at the 13th Circuit Solicitor’s Office for several years, in both the Pickens and Greenville offices. During this time, Jenny prosecuted hundreds of criminal cases and tried numerous trials involving driving under the influence (DUI), drug law violations, domestic violence, assault and battery, traffic offenses, theft, burglary, armed robbery, child abuse, child sexual abuse, and murder. Because a significant part of her case-load involved child abuse cases, Jenny worked closely and in cooperation with the Department of Social Services (DSS). Many of Jenny’s trials included expert witnesses, complex legal issues, multiple defendants, and multiple victims.
In 2013, Jenny founded her own firm, practicing primarily in the areas of criminal defense, family law, personal injury, DSS cases, and Guardian ad Litem appointments. Jenny also represented several victims of crime, acting as their liaison with the criminal justice system. In 2013, Jenny became the City Attorney for the City of Liberty and continued as such until 2016, when she became the Liberty Summary Court Judge, where she currently presides.
Jenny joined Clawson and Staubes, LLC in 2016, where she takes pride in dedicating her extensive courtroom experience and strong work ethic to advocating for the rights of our clients. Jenny will handle your case with the integrity, diligence, and ability it deserves.
