With degrees in English and Law and training in accounting (among other things) Jennifer Bennett is the editing, accounting, and administrative half of the team.
Jennifer grew up in the Houston suburbs, graduating from Dulles High School in Sugar Land, Texas. She got her bachelor’s degree in English from University of Houston before going to University of Houston Law Center (where she and Mark met and began dating). Jennifer has also studied accounting at the University of Houston, for use in defending financial-crimes cases.
Having grown up with two brothers, Jennifer was well prepared for the rough and tumble of criminal-defense trial lawyering. She and Mark tried cases together until she was eight months pregnant with their first child, when she took a break from the courtroom aspect of lawyering.
Now Jennifer applies her writing expertise to Bennett & Bennett’s motions and briefs, her accounting savvy to Bennett & Bennett’s white-collar cases, and her common sense and knowledge of human nature to developing the defense most likely to succeed for Bennett & Bennett’s clients.
