Jennifer Auer Jordan (pronounced Jer-Dun) is a transplant from South Georgia and though she has not lived there in over 20 years, her small town background informs her approach to the law. Put simply, she believes in helping people when they need it the most.
She specializes in complex civil cases, including medical malpractice cases, business disputes, investment fraud, whistleblower actions, and consumer class actions. Her work in the courtroom has resulted in a number of impressive verdicts and settlements including a multi-million dollar award to Georgia consumers victimized by unfair lending practices. Her reported cases include USA Payday Cash Advance Center #1, Inc. v. Evans, 281 Ga.App. 847 (2006) and Georgia Cash America, Inc. v. Strong, 286 Ga.App. 405 (2007), in which she represented Georgia consumers in multiple class action lawsuits against payday lenders. Most recently, she obtained a $3.7 million verdict in a case where an 18-year-old girl was sexually molested at a dental practice while under the effects of anesthesia.
In 2013, Jennifer developed an iPad app called JuryStrike to help other trial lawyers with jury selection. Because of her expertise, she often assists other attorneys during the jury selection process and is a frequent speaker on issues regarding the impact of social media and technology on modern trial practice.
Jennifer graduated magna cum laude from the University of Georgia School of Law where she was an Editorial Board Member and Articles Editor for Georgia Law Review and a member of the school’s award winning National Moot Court Team. After graduating, Jennifer served as a federal law clerk to United States District Court Judge Anthony A. Alaimo. She was also named to the Order of the Barristers (for outstanding oral advocacy) and the Order of the Coif (recognizing law graduates who graduate in the top 10% of their class). She is a member of the Leadership Georgia Class of 2008 and is the the past-President of the University of Georgia’s Law School Association Council.
Jennifer is a Master with the Joseph Henry Lumpkin American Inn of Court. She had previously served as a pupil and barrister with the the Lumpkin Inn.
She has been named to Georgia Trend Magazine’s “40 Under 40″ list that recognizes Georgians “under 40″ who “will lead our state’s commercial, cultural, academic and governmental institutions into the future” because of her work on behalf of Georgia consumers. She has also been chosen as a Rising Star, a Georgia Super Lawyer, and as one of Georgia Trend’s Legal Elite.

In 2013, Jennifer was recognized by the University of Georgia as one of its “40 Under 40″ alumni who “have made an impact in business, leadership, community, educational and/or philanthropic endeavors.” Additionally, Jennifer was recognized as one of the “40 Under 40: Rising Stars” for 2014 by the Fulton County Daily Report, the leading legal newspaper in the State of Georgia.
She is admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court and the Supreme Court of the State of Georgia, as well as all other trial and appellate courts in the State of Georgia.
