C. Genevieve Jenkins is founder and managing attorney of Excelsis Law, P.C. Prior to founding Excelsis Law, P.C., Ms. Jenkins amassed nearly a decade of experience litigating with and against some of the toughest legal professionals throughout California. She founded Excelsis Law to focus on employment and housing litigation on behalf of employees and tenants. Ms. Jenkins made tremendous sacrifices early on in her career to be able to gain expertise in these crucial areas of law that often implicate important civil rights issues.
In her employment practice, Ms. Jenkins represents employees in harassment, discrimination, retaliation, and wage-and-hour matters on an individual and class-action basis. In her housing practice, she represents tenants in civil lawsuits against landlords for issues including negligence, violations of the warranty of habitability, discrimination, and harassment.
Ms. Jenkins started her legal career as a litigator at Latham & Watkins – a highly selective corporate law firm with thousands of attorneys in offices worldwide that was founded in Los Angeles. The Firm ranked No. 1 in American Lawyer’s corporate rankings in 2017.
After two-and-a-half years at Latham, Ms. Jenkins was ready to follow her passion by advocating for individuals who found themselves in dire straits. From 2013-2014, she worked in Johannesburg, South Africa, as a voluntary legal advisor at Lawyers for Human Rights and as a law clerk to South African Constitutional Court Justice Johann van der Westhuizen. The South African Constitutional Court is equivalent to the United States Supreme Court, and is highly selective in choosing its clerks.
Thereafter, Ms. Jenkins sought to pursue her passion for civil rights advocacy closer to home, and so returned to Los Angeles, where she worked for several years with two of the best public-interest law firms in Los Angeles for tenants’ rights – the Eviction Defense Network and Inner City Law Center. Prior to founding Excelsis Law, Ms. Jenkins also obtained significant experience in employment litigation at two leading employee-side firms in Los Angeles.
