About Jenn Peters


Jenn Peters is an Associate Attorney with the Law Offices of Julie Rendelman.

Prior to joining the firm, Jenn worked as a Public Defender in Manhattan, where she handled countless cases, ranging from larcenies and assaults, to DWIs and sex offenses. In her most recent trial, Jenn and her co-counsel were able to get a First-Degree Robbery indictment dismissed in the middle of the trial.

During law school at Chicago-Kent College of Law, Jenn worked as a law clerk for a criminal appeals and post-conviction law firm, where she wrote appellate briefs and post-conviction petitions for various murder cases. In law school, Jenn won Best Oral Advocate at the Domenick L. Gabrielli Appellate Advocacy Competition, and graduated cum laude with five CALI awards.

Jenn received her BA in Legal Studies from the University of Waterloo, where she won the Reginald A. Haney award for the student in the Legal Studies program with the highest academic standing. She then received her Master’s Degree in Criminology and Socio-Legal Studies from the University of Toronto. Jenn went on to conduct ethnographic research on the police harassment and prosecution of outlaw motorcycle clubs in Canada, before ultimately pursuing her dream since childhood to become a criminal defense attorney.

Jenn is originally from Canada, and is fluent in French. True to Canadian form, Jenn was a competitive figure skater for 15 years before becoming an attorney. Her background as a high-level performer has made her fearless in the courtroom, and has instilled in her a competitive edge and desire to win, which she has carried over from the rink to her clients’ cases.
