Biography

Jennifer Rigterink was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, but considers herself a New Orleans “native by choice.” She received a bachelor’s degree in English Literature from the University of Oxford, and also served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Oxford Student. After a stint in Austin, Texas, Jennifer moved to New Orleans to attend Tulane University Law School, where she was a member of the Tulane Law Review. She spent her second summer clerking for the Office of Chief Counsel for the IRS in Washington, D.C. Upon graduating summa cum laude in 2012, Jennifer received the Conrad Meyer III Award for academic leadership, the Robert Friedman award for academic writing, and was designated a member of the Order of the Coif.

Jenny joined Baldwin Haspel Burke & Mayer in 2015. Her practice is focused on transactional matters, with an emphasis on business and estate planning. She helps clients achieve their objectives in a tax-efficient manner. Prior to joining the firm, Jenny served as a law clerk to the Honorable Jacques L. Wiener, Jr., Circuit Judge for the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, and to the Honorable Yvette Kane, District Judge for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.

Outside of work, Jenny enjoys gardening, chasing down her dog, Buster, and dancing with the NOLA Cherry Bombs, an all-women dancing and parading troupe founded in 2011.
