Jennifer Brannon was born and raised in Houston, TX. She graduated summa cum laude from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice before relocating to Norman, OK to attend school at the University of Oklahoma College of Law. Jennifer began her legal career as a volunteer at the Oklahoma County District Attorney’s Office in 2010 where she observed and assisted prosecutors. In 2011, she became a Licensed Legal Intern and immediately practiced in the courtroom which allowed her to gain invaluable litigation experience. As an intern, Jennifer handled arraignments, bail hearings, preliminary hearings, emergency custody hearings, bench trials, and jury trials. She received her Juris Doctorate from the University of Oklahoma College of Law and became licensed to practice law in the State of Oklahoma in 2012.
After law school, Jennifer continued with the District Attorney’s Office as an Assistant District Attorney in the juvenile division. She handled criminal prosecution as well as dependency actions for children who had been abused, abandoned, or neglected. Ms. Brannon was the prosecutor assigned to management of the Oklahoma County Family Drug Court Program and represented the State of Oklahoma in Appellate matters as well as practiced almost daily in the courtroom in hundreds of hearings and trials. She has collaborated with Child Welfare Workers, Law Enforcement, Medical and Mental Health Professionals, Educational Professionals, Court Appointed Special Advocates, and Guardian Ad Litems throughout her practice.
Jennifer moved to Atlanta, GA in early 2016. She practiced as an Associate Special Assistant Attorney General in Cherokee County and also briefly handled real estate closings and condemnation cases.
Jennifer enjoys spending time with family and friends, watching movies, playing board games, exploring her new hometown, and cheering on the Sooners in college football.
