The Team

Meet Our Staff

Our non-lawyer staff members are an integral part of the Combs Greene team! The hard work, dedication, attention-to-detail and compassion of our staff members is a vital part of the intelligent representation, individual attention and innovative solutions we provide to our clients.

Shannon Barnes
Legal Assistant

Shannon began her career at Combs Greene in 2007 — quickly becoming an invaluable member of the team. Shannon is now the most senior full-time staff member.  She is the primary legal assistant to Deborah Greene, and performs a variety of administrative functions, all with aplomb.

Jennell began her career at Combs Greene in early 2013 as the primary legal assistant to Steve Combs.  Jennell has proven to be an excellent legal assistant, while at the same time exuding warmth to our clients. She’s is also willing to take on any assignment (“no” isn’t in her vocabulary), including becoming our resident “handy woman” (she really is able to “fix” just about anything)!

Jennell grew up in Jacksonville, and Portsmouth, Virginia, but she’s also lived in California and Massachusetts.  Jennell has two children, a boy and a girl, and besides spending time with her family, she loves shopping, sewing and cooking.  Jennell ran track in high school (specializing in long distance running, relay races, and hurdles). Jennell’s favorite books are The Secret, by Rhonda Byrne, and Wheat Bellies, by Dr. William Davis, and her favorite movie is Con Air.
