Jenn Coalson is a trial lawyer whose practice focuses on a wide array of complex civil litigation, including cases involving civil rights, employment discrimination and retaliation, personal injury and wrongful death, business disputes, whistleblower protections, consumer protection, and government contract procurement. Jenn’s litigation experience includes all stages of trial preparation, trial, and appeal in both state and federal courts. She has also counseled clients through pre-trial negotiations and settlement discussions, mediation and arbitration proceedings, administrative hearings, and governmental investigations. Jenn knows that the hallmark of a great trial lawyer is the ability to achieve success—as defined by the client—regardless of the nature of the lawsuit. She regularly takes on cases that other attorneys are unwilling or unable to pursue.
Jenn also uses her legal training to assist other lawyers. She has represented attorneys in disciplinary proceedings before the State Bar of Georgia, she consults with other attorneys regarding civil rights and insurance issues that arise in their cases, and she helps attorneys navigate Georgia’s state and federal courts by serving as local counsel to lawyers from across the country.
An Atlanta native, Jenn obtained her undergraduate degree in economics and history from Wake Forest University, then returned to Georgia to attend the University of Georgia School of Law, from which she graduated with honors. She is a proud graduate of the State Bar’s leadership academy as well as the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association’s LEAD Program, and she co-chaired the GTLA LEAD Program for two years after her graduation. In addition to her experience in private practice, Jenn served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Timothy C. Batten, Sr. in the Atlanta and Newnan Divisions of the Northern District of Georgia.
Among the professional organizations with which Jenn is actively involved are the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, the American Association for Justice, the National Employment Lawyers Association, the American Constitution Society, the State Bar of Georgia’s Younger Lawyers Division, the Atlanta Bar Association, and the Lawyers Club of Atlanta. She is licensed to practice in Georgia’s trial and appellate courts as well as the United States District Courts for the Northern, Middle, and Southern Districts of Georgia. Outside of the office, Jenn lives in Atlanta’s Buckhead community and is a long-time volunteer with the Arthritis Foundation.
