Attorney Jennie Wray is one of The Harris Law Firm’s most accomplished attorneys, achieving both a position as partner at the firm as well as being named a Super Lawyers® Rising Star℠ seven years running. For perspective, an attorney who is named to the Super Lawyers list is considered a top attorney in their field—they must undergo review under 12 different criteria, and the list only represents the top 5% of all lawyers in that state. For someone to be a Rising Star, they must either be under 40 years old or have been practicing for less than a decade, while fulfilling the Super Lawyer requirements. The list has confirmed that Ms. Wray is among the top 2.5% of attorneys in her state, as rated by her colleagues. She also has a BV® rating on Martindale-Hubbell® and was nominated for Denver Business Journal's Top 40 Under 40 list for 2016 and 2017.
However, her awards, though impressive, do not fully express the excellence and passion that Ms. Wray brings to her practice. Her law career began at the Vermont Law School, and during school breaks she externed for New Jersey’s Presiding Judge in the Civil Division, as well as for the Hudson County Superior Court, Family Division. In both positions, she gained valuable insight into family law and court proceedings. After graduation she became a law clerk for the Superior Court Judge in Family Law, further deepening her knowledge of divorce, child custody, and spousal/child support. Her extensive knowledge of inner court workings serves her today as a family law attorney at The Harris Law Firm.
Attorney Jennie Wray’s accomplishments and career are rooted in one thing: her unrelenting determination to provide a voice to the voiceless, to make the law clear and accessible to those that need it most. That is why she practices family law—very few practice areas allow such a direct connection between legal decisions and the daily lives of everyday people. Ms. Wray fights to make sure that the law works on behalf of those who need it, not take advantage of them in desperate times. In addition, she donates her spare time to volunteering for the Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center, where she advocates on behalf of children in her community. Clients can trust in Attorney Wray’s determination, knowledge, and experience as she tirelessly and passionately works on their behalf, crafting solutions that can benefit them for years.
In her spare time, Jennie likes to ski, mountaineer, rock and ice climb, fly fish, hike, raft, and travel.
