Background

Jennifer Browning was born in Virginia and moved with her family several times before laying down roots near Greenville, South Carolina.  Her first paying job was cleaning out dryers at the local laundromat for $1 each.  After high school graduation, she moved to Los Angeles, CA  to attend the University of Southern California.   Years later, she decided to follow in her father’s footsteps and pursue a law degree at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale where she met her now husband, Berin.  They moved to Phoenix, Arizona together after graduation.

Jennifer has worked on a variety of matters from Plaintiff’s personal injury, bad faith and product liability to insurance defense construction defect cases.

Berin began the Law Office of Berin A Fite in 2007 and business quickly grew.  Jennifer joined the firm in 2008 to help manage the caseload and eventually they changed the name to Fite Law Group.  The car accident and wrongful death cases that the firm handles are particularly significant to Jennifer, as she lost a dear friend at the age of 19 to a drunk driver.  Although the process of making a claim to an insurance company can never replace a lost friend or family member, she takes pride in the work she does to make negligent drivers responsible for the damage they do and make the roads a safer place.

Jennifer and her husband Berin have three children and a wide variety of pets.  She considers herself a lifelong learner and enjoys reading, writing, and watching movies.
