Jordan Wynn is an Associate Attorney at Burford & Ryburn, L.L.P., where he is involved in all aspects of litigation for the firm, representing clients in a broad range of matters, including employment law issues, health law issues, professional liability defense, contract disputes, and personal injury matters. Jordan graduated from SMU Dedman School of Law and while there, he interned for two Texas state courts at the trial and appellate levels and served on the International Law Review. Prior to law school, Jordan graduated from Stephen F. Austin University where he was the captain of the university’s golf team.
Currently in his second year of practice, Jordan has quickly taken on leadership roles in DAYL and impressed others with his willingness to tackle new projects for the organization. He currently serves as co-chair of the Politically Aware Committee and the Judicial Intern Committee. As a co-chair of the Judicial Intern Committee, Jordan assisted with the planning of the Winter Interview Program for law students from Dallas who attend law school outside of Dallas and in the development of the new Judicial Intern stipend program. Jordan also works with the Judiciary Committee, and in 2016 helped to organize and fund raise for the 2016 Dinner with the Judiciary.
Outside of work and DAYL activities, Jordan is passionate about mentoring, having been a mentor to younger law students while in law school and since through the Mustang Exchange Program, which connects SMU alumni with SMU law students. He also spends time volunteering with organizations such as the Assist The Officer Foundation, The Wounded Warrior Project, and the Duskin and Stephens Foundation. Jordan continues to be an avid golfer, active in the political process, and describes himself as “obnoxiously patriotic” – which includes wearing an American flag whenever possible.
Jordan’s impressive work within DAYL and his passion for community, mentoring, and the profession make him the January, 2017 DAYL One to Watch.
