Julia Penny Clark’s father must have had a sense of humor. He nicknamed her “Penny” because he had only pennies in his pocket when she was born. He thought all children should have a nickname, hence Penny. (He also nicknamed her sister “Pepper” after the soft drink Dr. Pepper.) Penny joined Bredhoff & Kaiser in 1975. She had extensive experience in federal litigation and focused her practice in the employee-benefit area. She has argued before the U.S. Supreme Court and the Courts of Appeals. Her oral history was taken by Moxila Upadhyaya.
