  • "Ms. Briner was the lead counsel in defending our company in a large case. We won. Jenny's trial strategy, decision-making, concern about the details of our defense proved crucial in winning. Jenny's work ethic and the way she took a personal interest in the outcome, as though it was her own money at stake, was unmistakable and were important characteristics that made the difference. Jenny is personable, smart, ethical, and worthy of my whole-hearted recommendation."
