A native of rural Dodge county in Middle Georgia, Jen Jordan has dedicated her career to fighting for Georgians who don’t have power, money, or status. Jordan graduated magna cum laude from both Georgia Southern University and University of Georgia School of Law. After beginning her career as a clerk for U.S. District Court Judge Anthony Alaimo in Brunswick, Jen moved to Atlanta where she has practiced law for over 20 years.

Consistently recognized as one of the top attorneys in the state, Jen specializes in complex civil cases. Her work in the courtroom on behalf of Georgia consumers has resulted in multiple successful verdicts and reported appellate decisions, most notably representing consumers in multiple class action lawsuits against predatory payday lenders. Jen has served as an expert witness in consumer cases and in matters involving attorney fee disputes and has recovered millions for taxpayers representing relators in qui tam cases. 

From 2017 to 2022, Jen represented Georgia’s 6th Senate District, which encompasses large parts of Fulton and Cobb Counties. In 2022, she was Georgia’s Democratic nominee for Attorney General. Actively involved in electoral politics and issue advocacy, Jen maintains a broad network of political contacts both in Georgia and across the country. She regularly serves as a political and legal commentator for outlets including the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, WABE, MSNBC, and CNN.

Jen lives in Sandy Springs with her husband, two children, and three dogs. When she’s not practicing law, you can find her hosting the VoteHer podcast or reading British mystery novels.
