Jeniah Hunter is a member of the firm’s Defense Base Act practice group. As such, she works directly with clients to evaluate cases, give strategic recommendations on next steps, and works to ensure that cases are resolved in a timely manner. Jeniah’s previous experience includes working in-house in both the energy and telecommunications sectors on mergers and acquisitions and intellectual property matters.

Originally from South Carolina, Jeniah approaches her clients with a determination to give them the best legal representation possible. Analytical and detail-oriented, she understands that legal skill only solves half the equation. Clients need talented attorneys who are ready to spring into action. And when Jeniah is brought in to assist on a case, she always hits the ground running.

A graduate of the Thurgood Marshall School of Law, Jeniah likes the fact that her job affords her the opportunity to work on complex legal issues and provide a successful outcome for her clients. Outside the office, Jeniah enjoys traveling, taking care of her goldendoodle, and trying out new recipes.
