Murphy attorney Jnana Settle discovered a passion for advocating for the underserved as an undergrad at University of Hawaii. During that time, through her volunteer work with CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), Settle represented foster children in court and did home studies.
Through Settle’s experiences with CASA, it also served as her introduction into the legal world and she loved it.
In 2007, she graduated from University of Hawaii with a Bachelor of Arts in political science, then later earned her law degree from Southern Methodist University in 2016.
Prior to opening her own firm in 2017, Settle was an in-house attorney at Texas lender and Texas title companies and a Dallas real estate law firm.
“These (experiences) shaped my career,” Settle said. “Having those insights makes me good at what I do here.”
In May 2017, she opened her own firm in Plano which coincided with her family of seven moving to Murphy. In January 2018, she was able to move her firm, The Settle Law Firm, to Murphy. The original location was on FM 544, however, she quickly outgrew that location and moved to 213 N. Murphy Rd., Ste. 500 in Nov. 2019.
