Jennifer Codding is a Strategic Litigator and Senior Counsel with Massey Law Group. Her practice focuses on corporate transactions and litigation, real property law, and creditors’ rights in bankruptcy and foreclosure.
Jennifer graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a B.A. in English/Journalism and a minor in justice studies in 1994. In 2010, she received her Juris Doctor from the University of New Hampshire School of Law. Prior to and during law school, she accrued ten years of experience as a paralegal, specializing in real estate transactions. Jennifer is admitted to practice in the states of New Hampshire and Florida and the United States District Court and the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida.
In addition to her formal education, Jennifer gained valuable practical experience from the world around her. Her practical education began as a six-year-old, when the captain of the sailing vessel Consort appointed her as his first mate. In her years as first mate, she learned to be aware of subtle weather changes and adjust course accordingly. She understands that the water beneath your vessel may be deeper than it looks and knows that a sailor will quickly lose her footing if she does not develop sea legs.
Through these lessons, Jennifer has learned to identify her clients’ needs, develop a plan to meet those needs, and, if the initial plan points the bow directly into the wind, to grab the tiller and change the tack of the boat as necessary to bring the vessel safely into port.
Jennifer is a 2014 recipient of the Florida Association for Women Lawyers Leaders in the Law Award, an inaugural member of the Women Lawyers of Pasco, and is a Past President of the Pinellas County Chapter of the Florida Association for Women Lawyers. She currently serves on the Board of Trustees for the Sixth Judicial Circuit’s Law Library.
