Jennifer L. Greenberg, Esq.
Jennifer (Jenny) Greenberg is the founder of the Innocence Project of Florida, and as its Director ran the organization for five years as it successfully freed the wrongfully convicted through the use of conclusive DNA evidence and forced changes in the law to protect future prisoners' rights to obtain genetic testing. As a defense attorney, Jenny Greenberg advocated for many years in other significant non-profit service, including 10 years investigating and litigating post-conviction death penalty cases, usually under pending execution ("warrant") conditions. In her legal practice, Ms. Greenberg has also achieved the freedom of a score of battered women who killed their abusers in self-defense, and defended the rights of both forensic and civil mental patients detained at Florida State Hospital in Chattahoochee, among other critical defense activities.
Throughout her 25 years of service to indigent prisoners, Ms. Greenberg has trained lawyers and others in effective death penalty investigation and presentation, focusing upon the intersection between homicide and mental health disorders (including those acquired due to severe physical and emotional abuse). Jenny Greenberg has been quoted in relevant death penalty books, has appeared on CNN and many other news outlets, and has been featured in newspapers and publications from the New York Times and Time Magazine to local papers from coast to coast and internationally.
Jenny holds a B.A. and an M.A. in History, as well as a law degree from Florida State University.ï»¿
