Jenna Finkelstein

Founding Partner Jenna Finkelstein resides in St. Petersburg, Florida where she has lived for the last 20 years.  She enjoys spending time with her husband, friends, and family. Jenna loves traveling and practicing yoga. Her only child is her French Bulldog, Ben Franklin (“Benny”) who is the light of her life and a staple at the law office. When you visit the Powers Sellers & Finkelstein office, you can be sure Benny will be there to greet you! 

Jenna earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Florida in Gainesville.   She received her B.A. in Criminology, with a minor in Psychology.   She went on to attend Stetson University College of Law in Gulfport, Florida.  There she earned her Juris Doctorate (J.D.) and a Concentration in Advocacy certification. 

Jenna completed an internship at the Public Defender's Office for the Sixth Judicial Circuit, where she then began her professional career.  She worked as an Assistant Public Defender for seven years.  Her experience defending individuals charged with crimes in the state of Florida ranges from domestic battery to DUI Manslaughter, Drug Trafficking, First Degree Murder, and all crimes in between.  Jenna is qualified by the courts of our state to represent those charged with Capital Murder for which the State of Florida is seeking the Death Penalty. There are very few attorneys qualified to accept these extremely serious and substantial cases.

Jenna has aggressively defended clients in over 70 jury trials and has negotiated thousands of favorable dispositions in her career thus far.  She has experience handling complex criminal cases such as Sexual Battery, Lewd and Lascivious Battery/Molestation, Armed Bank Robbery, and Drug Trafficking.  Jenna's vast experience has given her invaluable insight into the workings of State Attorney's Offices, as well as many police agencies and other state departments.  

Jenna is grateful to be able to say that her profession is her passion! She continues to dedicate her career to helping those accused of criminal offenses.  She is committed to aggressively defending her clients utilizing resources such as private investigators, doctors, DNA experts, and advanced technology to obtain the best possible outcome for her clients.  Jenna is enthusiastic about the law and promises personal attention to all her clients and their individual needs.  Jenna is a seasoned trial attorney who knows the legal system and its players.  Jenna and her team at the Law Offices of Powers Sellers & Finkelstein, PLC, are committed to fighting for you.
