Techiest Lawyers: Perpetual Student
Global e-discovery counsel at Deere & Co.
Nominated by Amor Esteban: “Hamilton has incorporated technology into all facets of her insanely busy life. “To call her a techie doesn’t do Jenny justice,” husband Jay Hamilton tells me. “Part machine may be a better fit.” In fact, he jokes that his now-five-months-pregnant wife could easily give birth to a child who’s up to speed on all the latest apps. Jennifer’s obsession with technology is a mystery to some, but you don’t have to look far to find the source of her fascination—the former Gateway employee grew up around her family’s dinner table chatting with her software programming brother and their fellow techie father, who spent years at IBM in the ’60s and is now spending free time in retirement building iPhone apps.
