Jennifer, born and raised in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, completed her undergraduate studies in 1997 at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois. After working in residential property management for four years, she attended The John Marshall Law School in Chicago, earning her Juris Doctor degree, cum laude, in 2004. During law school, Jennifer was a member of The Law Review, and worked as a research assistant for Professor Ralph Ruebner, known nation-wide as a leading author and expert in the areas of evidence and criminal procedure. After a brief career as a criminal prosecutor, Jennifer opened her own firm focusing on criminal, traffic and DUI defense, family law, and landlord-tenant law. In 2016, Jennifer created Kearney Law Office, a firm that can meet nearly any legal need.

In 2012, Jennifer was selected by Super Lawyers for inclusion in the Illinois Rising Stars list as one of the top up-and-coming attorneys in Illinois. Each year, no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state receive this honor. The annual selections are made using a rigorous multi-phased process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area. The 2012 Illinois Rising Stars list was published in Super Lawyers magazine and the February 2012 issue of Chicago magazine.
