PRIOR WORK EXPERIENCE

Ms. Seifert worked as an associate attorney at the offices of Jenkins & Olson (now known as Jenkins & Bowen) in Cartersville, Georgia from 2002 through 2006 handling mostly civil defense litigation for insurance companies including Georgia Farm Bureau.  Her first three years of practice were spent primarily handling the Federal class action suit styled In re: Tri-State Crematory as lead counsel for the Marsh family defendants.

After almost 5 years with Jenkins & Olson, Ms. Seifert was fortunate to have the opportunity to clerk for The Honorable F. Larry Salmon, a (now Senior) Judge from Floyd County Superior Court.  

In 2008, Ms. Seifert joined the Floyd County Public Defender's Office and spent the next 7 years representing indigent defendants charged with crimes ranging from public drunk and DUI to rape and murder. During her time as a public defender, she settled thousands of cases with favorable negotiated plea agreements and tried almost 100 jury trials as lead defense counsel.

In July of 2015, Ms. Seifert opened Seifert Law with the mission of providing competent, compassionate and courageous representation to potential clients from all over Northwest Georgia in all areas of practice.

 

Ms. Seifert is a member of the State Bar of Georgia and past president of the Rome Bar Association. She is a graduate of the 2011 State Bar YLD Leadership Academy and a 2015 graduate of Leadership Rome (LRXXXII).  

JJ is honored to serve on the Board of Directors for the Greater Rome Chamber of Commerce as well as being a board member for both The Free Clinic of Rome (now Faith & Deeds Commnity Healthcare) and Cancer Navigators, as she is a grateful cancer survivor herself.

She is a sustaining member of the Junior Service League of Rome, involved in Scouting, plays in the backup band for her middle schoolers' show choir, "Grand Illusion," and she is the chapter founder and leader for Rome's "Moms RUN This Town" running club for women.  JJ and her family are parishoners at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Rome.
