Jenny Thornton is an associate in the firm’s corporate and real estate practice groups. Jenny concentrates her practice in commercial real estate and corporate business transactions, including commercial leasing, contract negotiation, and ancillary transactional matters in relation thereto. Prior to joining Messner Reeves, Jenny served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable David C. Higgs of Minnesota’s Second Judicial District Court in St. Paul. Jenny incorporates the practical wisdom and procedural knowledge she gained as a law clerk to assist her clients in effectively and strategically navigating the legal process.

Community outreach has always been a priority for Jenny and she enjoys volunteering for a variety of local and nonprofit organizations. While living in Minnesota, Jenny volunteered for Wills for Heroes, a program dedicated to providing first responders, police officers, and their spouses a volunteer attorney to assist in preparing wills and other estate planning documents at no cost. Jenny hopes to facilitate the establishment of the WFH program in Colorado in the near future.

In her spare time, Jenny enjoys hot yoga classes, the occasional Netflix binge, spending time with family and friends, and exploring Denver neighborhoods with her Bernese Mountain Dog, Judge. Jenny’s favorite time of the year is football season (Go Broncos!) and she can be found snowboarding at Copper Mountain on the weekends all winter long.
