Robert K. “Rob” Jenner founded Jenner Law, P.C. in 2018, focusing his practice on helping individuals and families affected by the harmful conduct of others. His main practice focuses on cases involving personal injury, wrongful death, products liability, mass torts, and therapy abuse.

His employees have worked with him for 10 years, 17 years, 21 years, and more, cultivating a culture of respect and family in the workplace which translates into superior client relationships and advocacy. He understands representing clients with physical, emotional, and psychological trauma and seeks to ensure they are not victimized again by the legal process after suffering the harm that brought them to his law firm for help.
Of working with Rob, his fellow lawyers have said, “Rob Jenner and his firm are the model for caring, compassionate, and effective lawyers. Rob is a listener. Especially for clients, Rob will make sure that he hears you, understands you, and that your voice will be heard.” His former clients have said, “Rob Jenner, treated me like a person, not a payday. I could contact him directly if I wanted to. His staff were always polite and willing to help me with any questions that I had.”
