2020 Unsung Legal Heroes: Jennifer Domholt

As a records specialist at Robins Kaplan, Jennifer Domholt fills an indispensable role at one of the Twin Cities’ largest law firms.

The responsibilities of her position run the gamut from conducting conflict-of-interest checks, opening new matters in the firm’s complex data base, managing the preservation and storage of physical files when a matter has been closed, writing reports, and also assisting teams of attorneys from outside the firm.

In her 20 years at the firm, her job as a records specialist has steadily become more and more reliant on high tech. “When I first started everything was very paper-intensive, lots of printing out reports by hand. Now the workflow is online and everyone can always know where their requests are in the process.”

She enjoys the variety of her position at Robins Kaplan. “Our practices vary widely, from intellectual property to personal injury, to medical malpractice, estates and trusts, working with insurance litigation. I always feel that I’m helping all of our clients both internally and externally.”

Domholt is also proud of the amount of pro bono work the firm does. “We have done a lot of pro bono work in immigration law, also in assisting people who need protective orders.”
