Jerry Clinch was born and raised in Grand Island, Nebraska. After high school, Jerry enlisted in the United States Navy, where he served as a Sonar Technician. After his service in the Navy, Jerry returned to Nebraska.
A strong work ethic is woven into Jerry’s fabric. Before attending law school, Jerry worked a variety of jobs, including delivering furniture and managing the warehouse at Slumberland Furniture, working part-time as a Disc Jockey for Hometown Family Radio, and operating a bullet press at Hornady Manufacturing. While working full-time, Jerry obtained an Associate of Arts degree at Central Community College, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Behavioral Science at Bellevue University. Jerry then proceeded to attend Stetson University College of Law out of Gulfport, FL, where he earned a Juris Doctor after only 2 and ½ years of study. While at Stetson, Jerry took part in two judicial internships where he was given a judicial view of both criminal and civil law. Jerry was also selected to be a teaching assistant for Trial Advocacy, where students learn the ins and outs of litigation and conducting trials. Additionally, Jerry became a member of the Stetson Law Review, where he wrote and published an article titled “King Turned Commoner: The Effect of Fernandez v. California,” 45 STETSON L. REV. 339 (Spring 2016).
After graduating from law school, Jerry and his family moved back to Nebraska where they settled down in the small town of Hordville. Jerry became licensed to practice law in Nebraska, and started work as an Assistant General Counsel for one of the largest debt collection companies in the state. During his tenure as Assistant General Counsel, Jerry was exposed to a wide variety of legal cases and issues, and has argued cases before the majority of Nebraska’s county court judges.
While Jerry will be available by appointment at all office locations, Jerry will primarily serve his home territory from the Central City, Nebraska office. Jerry is excited to join the team and is looking forward to providing legal services for families and small businesses.
Jerry is married to Amber Clinch, who he was fortunate to have met while out on a furniture delivery. Amber works for a company that provides supervised visits and family support for families that are going through difficult times. Jerry and Amber have been blessed with two wonderful daughters-MaKenna and Sophia. The Clinch family loves the peace and quiet that comes with their small-town life, as well as the people they have met who make up their community.
During his free time, when he is not out and about with his family, Jerry enjoys cooking and trying out new recipes, playing music on a variety of different instruments, and listening to audiobooks. Jerry also enjoys spending time outdoors, whether it’s camping, going on nature walks, or taking a stroll to the local park with the family to get some fresh air.
