When Jennifer Mirus started her career as an attorney at Boardman Clark, she worked on a wide spectrum of legal matters. It didn’t take long for her to notice that she was instantly intrigued whenever an employment law issue hit her desk.
Nearly three decades later, Jennifer’s desk has no shortage of employment law cases; as co-chair of Boardman Clark’s Labor and Employment practice group, she has dedicated her career to it.
“I was led to practicing employment law because of its focus on people,” she says. “I care deeply about bonding with my clients and helping them balance a people-focused management approach with making the tough decisions needed to run a successful organization.”
Her favorite part of the job is helping to solve her clients’ most difficult issues — especially when they can’t see a path through them on their own.
When she’s not solving employment challenges, Mirus is preventing them. Organizations regularly hire her to provide on-site training for their management teams and entire workforces.
In addition to handling a full-time employment law practice, Jennifer was recently elected the chairperson of Boardman Clark’s Executive Committee, the firm’s foremost leadership position. Jennifer is the first woman to hold this honor in the firm’s history.
“I took on this role because I’m passionate about Boardman Clark,” she says. “I want to ensure that we continue to be a place that attracts top talent, embraces diversity and thrives.”
