About Jennifer A. Clemens-Conlon
Jennifer was raised in Dubuque County, Iowa and graduated from Western Dubuque High School. Thereafter, she obtained her undergraduate degree from the University of Northern Iowa (UNI) while actively competing nationally on the UNI speech team. Jennifer then attended the University of Iowa Law School where she competed for the University of Iowa law school on their mock trial team. Upon returning to the Dubuque area after law school and beginning full time employment as an attorney Jennifer sought additional challenges by pursuing and obtaining a master’s degree in communication from the University of Dubuque. Jennifer sought to pass on her love for both law and speech by teaching classes at the University of Dubuque and Loras College. She has been an active member of a variety of non-profit boards as a means of giving back to the community which she has called home. Jennifer has worked to serve her clients in a variety of different capacities over the years. Due to the evolving needs of her clients, Jennifer’s practice has transitioned to a focus on real estate, estate planning, probate and corporate/business work. However, she continues to serve a wide variety of her clients’ needs as a general practice attorney.
