Jenny Park always knew what she wanted from a career. She wanted to help people. But it was not until a few years after earning her undergraduate degree that she decided the field of law would offer her the best opportunities to do just that.
When Jenny first entered the University of Illinois as an undergrad, it was with the intention of becoming a medical doctor. In 1993, she graduated from the U of I with a Bachelor of Science in biology. Then, she took some time off from school to reassess her career goals. While working as a paralegal during her hiatus from the classroom, Jenny determined that law would be a better choice than medicine for the kind of help she wanted to provide. As a result, she went on to enter the School of Law at Indiana University, earning her Juris Doctorate in 2001.
Before joining Meyer Capel, Jenny practiced law with an Indianapolis firm, where she focused in creditors' rights and commercial transactions. She also served as a volunteer with Legal Lines, a telephone consultation service of the Indianapolis Bar Association, answering questions and providing assistance in all areas of the law for persons unable to afford legal counsel. At Meyer Capel, she concentrates on real estate, land development and business law. She is currently licensed in Illinois and Indiana.
