  • Bryce Gregory Murray

    I have referred many clients and potential clients to Jenny for bankruptcy and consumer finance issues. I have also worked with Jenny as co-counsel on a number of matters. Jenny is intelligent in the law, takes a common sense approach to handling her clients issues and is one of the most caring attorneys I've seen in the practice. I'm amazed at the care she gives for her clients- she'll talk to them morning, noon and night- it doesn't matter what her schedule is, she'll always make time to talk to her clients even if the best time for her client to talk in 11 pm! Jenny is the embodiment of a great lawyer.
