In our Attorney Spotlight series, we will be taking you behind the scenes and giving you a personal look at one of our personal injury lawyers. Today, we are excited to introduce you to one of our best and most experienced legal practitioners, Mrs. Jenna Garraux.
About Jenna Garraux: Early Life & Undergraduate Studies
Jenna is originally from Columbia, South Carolina, but moved to Bristol, Tennessee to attend King College, where she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in history while earning cum laude honors. While studying her degree at the university, she was also a four-year member of the varsity soccer team.
Internships & Law School
After graduating King College, Jenna completed an internship with Judge Joseph F. Anderson, Jr. of the U.S. District Court of South Carolina. Upon completion of her internship, she enrolled in the University of South Carolina School of Law. There, she was able to broaden her legal horizons by studying a variety of topics, such as Transnational Dispute Resolution at the world-renowned Gray’s Inn in London, England. She used this hands-on experience to learn about creative resolutions in litigation that she still uses to this day.
Jenna would go on to earn her Doctorate of Jurisprudence from the university, and became legally certified to practice law in South Carolina.
Legal Career & Personal Life
Jenna spent her early legal career defending workers’ compensation claims, handling hundreds of cases for a variety of clients. She has since expanded to personal injury, car crashes, and semi-truck accident claims. Since she spent part of her career protecting employers and insurance carriers in these types of cases, she has a full understanding of the tactics these parties use, and can better defend the victims of on-the-job injuries.
Jenna has moved back to her hometown of Columbia, South Carolina, where she currently lives with her husband – Jared H. Garraux – and their four children.
