Jeannie is a member of the Professional Liability Department, where the focus of her practice is on condominium and homeowner association disputes, Florida and Federal Fair Housing Act, §1983 Civil Rights claims and claims brought under Florida statute §768.28. She also represents clients in breach of fiduciary actions, civil  theft, professional (non-medical) negligence claims, privacy and data security and complex business litigation cases.

Much of Jeannie's representation and defense of her clients is based on soundings and legal theories based on breach of fiduciary, violations of Florida Statutes, Ch. 718 and 720, negligence, Florida/Federal Fair Housing violations, tortious interference, as well as employment actions based on pregnancy discrimination, race, age and gender discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination (Miami-Dade), retaliatory employment termination, Florida Unfair Trade Practices Act and breach of contract.

Jeannie represents a wide variety of clients such as condominium and homeowner associations, corporate directors and officers, management organizations (not-for-profit)  and houses of worship. She also defends non-medical professionals such as lawyers, architects, engineers, contractors, subcontractors, debt collectors, insurance brokers/agents and title agents. Jeannie also works with other attorneys and clients in privacy and data breach matters. Here, she works with clients helping them to reduce cyber risk exposures, as well as guiding them through incident response, containment, and compliance measures after a data breach occurs.

In 2001, Jeannie graduated from Florida State University obtaining her B.S. degree and majoring in political science. She then went on to earn her juris doctor from the St. Thomas University School of Law in 2004, graduating with honors. After joining Marshall Dennehey, Jeannie was a participant in the firm’s Advanced Trial Advocacy Mock Trial Program.

After graduating law school in 2004, Jeannie joined a south Florida law firm primarily handling matters involving commercial real estate development, land use and zoning. Jeannie continued to handle a variety of real estate transactional matters in Miami, Fort Myers and Orlando, Florida, including the issuance of title insurance on various commercial and residential real estate and financial transactions, lender representation, condominium law and real estate litigation.

Jeannie is admitted to practice law in the state of Florida and United States District Court Southern District of Florida.
