Jennifer M. Manyen, Esq.
Jennifer M. Manyen, a licensed attorney in Florida, attained her Juris Doctorate degree from Florida Agricultural & Mechanical College of Law, and her Bachelor degree, in Political Science, from the University of Central Florida.
While attending law school she clerked at a national appellate litigation firm where she drafted numerous state and federal direct appeals, post-conviction petitions, and writs of habeas corpus. Under the direct supervision of the managing partner she was also exposed to the procedure and laws of the states of Texas, New York, New Jersey, and North Carolina. Currently, she is pursuing obtaining her license to practice law in the District of Columbia.
In addition to her clerkship, she served as a pioneer in election protection to ensure minorities were not discriminated against and had the ability to vote in the last presidential election.
Prior to attending law school, Jennifer, was a long time business professional in property management where she utilized Landlord Tenant Law and the Fair Housing laws in Florida and Arizona on a daily basis. During her property management career she fought for the rights of business owners and tenants. This first- hand experience with property law required attention to detail; because every conversation and legal notice distributed, had ramifications for the business owners and tenants alike.
Although Jennifer's true passion as an attorney is "having the ability to help those who cannot help themselves" she is still intrigued by Space law and the impact space travel has on the environment. This has led her to do extensive research and writing on numerous environmental issues that the world faces today. A few areas of her focus have been on Eco villages, ecological destruction resulting in endangered species, the effects of pollution and land erosion on agriculture and animals, recycling plastic and the associated costs, non-renewable resources, composting facilities, closed loop and solar energy, and waste management.
She has also enjoyed recognition in academia by receiving the highest grade in Florida Civil and Criminal Practice, several awards, and the opportunity to present her research and findings at the Midwest Political Science Association conference on Russia's Constitutional Court on Freedom of Religion.
Jennifer grew up in Michigan in a blended middle class family that instilled in her a strong work ethic. She was the third child of a family of seven, all of which her siblings were brothers. This family dynamic required her to learn at a very young age how her arguments could be heard and recognized. Her love for warmer weather has led her to claim Florida as her home.
