Many Morrow County residents already know Jenifer Murphy Burnaugh who grew up in Edison and was a life long resident of Morrow County until beginning her legal career.  She is the daughter of Dwight and Becky Murphy of Edison, and she graduated from Mount Gilead High School in 1992.  While studying criminal justice and sociology in her college years, Jenifer clerked for Robert C. Hickson, Jr., another life long resident and well known attorney of Morrow County, at his firm in Mount Gilead.

In September 2004, Ms. Burnaugh had the honor of returning to Morrow County to argue before the Ohio Supreme Court during its off-site program.  The Morrow County Bar President at that time was Attorney Robert C. Hickson, Jr. who had coordinated the Supreme Court's visit to Mount Gilead.  It was pure coincidence that Attorney Burnaugh's case was one of the matters chosen to be heard by the Supreme Court during their visit.  The venue gave Ms. Burnaugh a home field advantage since family, former teachers, and members of the community were present in the courtroom to show their support. 

When Robert C. Hickson, Jr. won the election in November 2006 for the new judgeship for the Morrow County Common Pleas Court, the opportunity became available for Jenifer to take over his law firm.  Judge Hickson had his legal practice for 24 years and has known Attorney Burnaugh for over 10 years.  Jenifer began working with the firm's clients in late 2006. On January 1, 2007, she renamed the practice to Burnaugh Law Office and started adding new clients.
