Padberg Appelbaum Knepper Adds Associate Attorney Jenna DeBarry to Team

St. Louis litigation firm continues to add experienced talent to benefit clients.

St. Louis, MO, October 2, 2023 — The law firm of Padberg Appelbaum Knepper (PAK) is pleased to welcome Jenna DeBarry to the team.  

In her role as an Associate Attorney, Jenna brings more than a year of experience working as a clerk at PAK while completing her law degree. During this time, she demonstrated a keen understanding of the law and an ability to apply those insights for the benefit of PAK’s clients.   

“I want to use my skills in the best way possible to help others, so I decided early on I would be a lawyer,” said DeBarry. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to join the PAK team. Everyone is so kind, caring and eager to help.”

At PAK, DeBarry represents clients who have been injured in a range of civil practice cases, including automobile accidents, Worker’s Compensation, wrongful death and premises liability. She is licensed in the state of Missouri.

PAK partner attorneys note that DeBarry is one of only two law clerks the firm has hired immediately out of law school. 

“She is passionate about bringing justice for her clients,” said Theresa Appelbaum, Principal and Partner Attorney. “We knew very early on just how special Jenna was and what a tremendous lawyer she will be. We could not be more thrilled to have her join our legal team.”

“Jenna works hard and is not afraid of a challenge,” said Nicole Burlison Knepper, Principal and Partner Attorney. “From the moment we met her, we knew she would be a part of this team.”

DeBarry received an undergraduate degree in Criminology from Missouri State University (MSU) and earned her J.D. from Saint Louis University (SLU) School of Law. In addition to her work at PAK, DeBerry plans to get involved with the Women Lawyers’ Association (WLA), the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis (BAMSL), the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys (MATA) and the Lawyers Association of St. Louis.
