Biography

Jennifer is the Owner and Managing Partner of the Colorado Office of Queener Law. She is originally from the Great Smoky Mountains of Knoxville, Tennessee and is now a proud Denverite.
Jennifer has practiced in four federal courts, over thirty-five counties, and has argued before the Court of Appeals. She has been named Law Week’s Barrister’s Best Civil Litigator in the State of Colorado and the New Trial Lawyer of the Year shortly after joining the Colorado Bar. She has been published in Lexis Nexis Expert Commentary and holds a record jury verdict for punitive damages in a commercial trucking collision case.
Jennifer prides herself on being a trial attorney and on her focus on litigation. She and her team primarily represent clients injured in premises liability and commercial trucking collisions. Additionally, Jennifer acts as a consulting expert for her colleagues in the areas of client and witness preparation and discovery and Rule 30(b)(6) depositions.
Jennifer’s true love, though, is her four-legged children. She and her partner Andrew have three of their own and regularly foster and train service dogs in her role as Vice President of the Rescue for PTSD, a non-profit that rescues dogs and trains them to provide to Veterans free of charge.
