Attorney at Thomas J. Henry Law's Houston Office
Ms. Jennifer Parker received her Doctor of Jurisprudence at South Texas College of Law and her Master of Humanities with a certificate in Women’s Studies from University of Houston-Clear Lake. She is also a certified mediator. In law school, she was associate editor of the Texas Journal of Business Law and involved in the Mock Trial team. She was also involved in many law school clubs such as Delta Theta Phi, STCL Women’s Law Society, and STCL Oil and Gas Law Society.
Before coming to Thomas J. Henry, Ms. Parker worked in a Family Law legal clinic helping indigent clients with family issues such as divorce and custody disputes. Being able to help people who are marginalized and unable to afford legal services has been very rewarding for Ms. Parker. Ms. Parker first became interested in the legal field by helping her family with navigating and negotiating legal issues on their behalf. She discovered that it was not only something that she enjoyed, but that it was something that she excelled at.
Ms. Parker has written several graduate papers on social justice, art, films, and philosophy. She was a presenter, speaker, and author at the University of Houston Humanities conference. She presented her paper, Perception and the Law: What We See, What We Don’t See, and What We Should See. Ms. Parker is passionate about education and helping people. Personal injury has become a passion for her since she started as a Case Manager with the firm. Going through the process with clients from the beginning of their matter to the conclusion has shown Ms. Parker the impact that these accidents have on the people involved in the case. Family is very important to Ms. Parker so being able to advocate for the families involved in the accidents is rewarding to her.
Ms. Parker grew up in Texarkana which is known as the “Twin City” because the border between Arkansas and Texas is located in the heart of the city at the post office. She moved to Houston in 2006 and has made Houston her home. She is an avid Rockets and Astros fan and enjoys going to the concerts, festivals, and events that Houston is host to.
In her spare time, Ms. Parker enjoys spending time with her family and friends watching movies, cooking, exploring Houston, and playing with her pit bull, Harlowe. She is a mother to three grown daughters who are working towards their own careers. Watching them grow into powerful independent women is something that she is extremely proud of. Ms. Parker is also an amateur author who enjoys writing short stories.
