Attorney Awards


Jane Penny is a defense attorney with over 30 years of experience in private practice. She concentrates her practice in defending clients during federal and state grand jury proceedings and white collar criminal matters involving false statements to government agents, Atomic Energy Act violations, mail fraud, environmental law, and public corruption. Some of her best work has involved keeping her clients anonymous and out of trouble. She measures her professional success by seeing how little attention her clients can attract rather than how much. She has long attained Martindale Hubbells highest AV rating for legal ability and ethical standards.

Throughout her legal career, Ms. Penny has counseled numerous licensed operators and individuals in response to U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission/Office of Investigations (NRC/OI) probes into intentional violation of plant procedures, inaccurate statements to the NRC, safety conscious work environment (SCWE) discrimination, security related and force on force drill misconduct, and regulatory or plant performance violations culminating in referrals to the Department of Justice or United States Attorneys Offices. These representations have taken her to many nuclear power plants throughout the United States. In addition, Ms. Penny has conducted confidential, or internal fact finding investigations for companies in response to government inquiries, NRC referred allegations, employee hotline calls, and whistleblower reports of misconduct by management or union employees.

Since 2007, Ms. Penny has provided consultant services to the U.S. Department of Energys Office of Enforcement in connection with nuclear safety, worker safety and health, and classified information security enforcement investigations.
