Jenna Jayjohn York graduated from Cumberland School of Law in the top 8% of her class. Early on, Jenna proved that she has both the intelligence and the grit necessary to be a respected trial attorney, winning the 2017 National Civil Trial Competition held in Los Angeles, California and the 2018 National Trial Competition Regional Tournament in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. She served as the Associate Editor of the Cumberland Law Review and was elected Vice President of the Student Bar Association. She was one of only a few dozen students chosen to serve as a Judge Abraham Caruthers Teaching Fellow.

Jenna is driven by a ferocious desire to hold wrongdoers accountable and a sincere commitment to the clients she represents. She has a disciplined focus and unparalleled attention to detail that distinguish her in the courtroom and make her an outstanding advocate in every case.

Jenna practices in the areas of automobile and trucking accidents, premises liability, products liability, industrial accidents, medical malpractice, and fraud. She is a member of the Alabama State Bar Association, the Mobile Bar Association, the Alabama Association for Justice, and the American Association for Justice.

Jenna grew up in Baldwin County, Alabama and graduated summa cum laude from Troy University, where she also served as a Senator At Large in the Student Government Association and was a member of four separate academic honor societies.

The Cunningham Bounds Experience

A HISTORY OF LEGAL EXCELLENCE
  • With Us, It's Personal
    Throughout your case, our team will always be accessible, responsive, respectful, honest, and compassionate. Our clients can attest to our high level of service and the longstanding relationships we have forged with them.
  • Committed to Our Community
    We believe in giving back to our community. We provide pro bono (no cost) legal services to those in our community who can’t afford legal representation. We also support local charitable organizations by donating our time, money, and expertise.
  • With You to the End
    Unlike most plaintiff law firms, we have our own appellate practice, which means we can stay involved in your case throughout the appeals process. We keep fighting until the case is over.
