2020 Unsung Legal Heroes: Jennifer Marrone

If you’re going to work in data, it helps if you love data. Jennifer Marrone loves data.

As e-discovery project manager at Robins Kaplan, Marrone leads teams of attorneys in an effort to coordinate e-discovery members including experts in SQL management, processing experts and analysts.

Under Marrone’s leadership, these groups regularly review matters involving millions of documents. That takes dedication, and her colleagues say that she is seldom out of the office between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.

How and when did you know you wanted to pursue a career in the legal field?

I started at Quorum, a legal support vendor, in 1993. It was second-shift coding, which is about the bottom. I guess I had a knack for it.

What do you find the most rewarding or love best about working in the legal profession?

We have a great team. We work well together and get the job done. Also, I just love data. I’m a data hack. Finding a solution for complicated data that won’t work is really fun.

What inspires you and motivates you to achieve your goals?

Getting the best job done from an internal place — not for accolades or for winning a case, but for the love of a job well done.

What’s the best piece of advice that you ever received?

In the legal field, there are lots of personalities to work with. Also, we’ll find a way. There’s always a solution.

What is something that most people don’t know about you?

I have a love of medieval philosophy, especially metaphysical philosophy. How I bring that to my job, I’m not sure.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

I’m a Netflix binge watcher. The last great show I watched was “Indian Matchmaker.”
