Highly respected in her field by her peers, Jody Harper Alderman has practiced eminent domain law and real estate law for more than two decades. Among her colleagues, Jody is known for her willingness to go above and beyond for a client, often times “giving 150 percent,” her law firm partner, Carrie Bernstein, says. “She truly cares. That’s why people come back and say ‘wow.’” During law school at the University of Colorado School of Law, it was the takings clause of the U. S. Constitution — where the power of eminent domain stems — that immediately piqued Jody’s interest. As such, her University of Colorado Law Review article focused on the Fifth Amendment’s takings clause. Upon graduating from law school, she calls it fortuitous that she found a job at Denver law firm Grimshaw & Harring (now called Spencer Fane) where she could focus on the area of law that so interested her. Jody worked at Grimshaw & Harring until 2009, when she and Carrie left to start Alderman Bernstein. As a married mother of three, Jody wanted to nurture her professional ambitions while being fully present for her family.
