This is a great opportunity to learn about judicial opportunities regardless of where you are in your career (as well as meet other attorneys from around Southern and Central Oregon).

About Janna Wittenberg:
Janna Wittenberg has lived all over the country (she stopped counting at 25 addresses) and attended schools all along the way (she stopped counting at 15). She attended law school at the University of Wyoming where she obtained a concurrent degree in Environment and Natural Resources. Her work after law school includes a year in Denver drafting oil and gas title opinions and four years at a civil litigation firm in Montana doing mostly employment law work. She has just accepted a position as a public defender in Montana and is excited to meld her work as an attorney with her volunteer efforts there. She also finds happiness in her dog Dash, reading well written fiction, driving her square Volvo wagon (with Dash as co-pilot of course), and visiting her diasporatic family and friends (preferably in the Volvo with Dash). She would include playing cello as happiness but Dash would disagree – he much prefers it when she leaves the cello playing to Yo Yo Ma.
