Selendy & Gay today announced the election of Joy Odom and Oscar Shine to the firm’s partnership, effective January 1, 2021.
“When we formed Selendy & Gay almost three years ago, we looked forward to this day—the selection of our first new partners from the associate ranks—with great anticipation,” said Managing Partner David Elsberg. “We are tremendously proud of these talented, homegrown attorneys and all they have contributed to our firm.”
“After a year that has tested us all, we are delighted to welcome Joy and Oscar to the partnership. In spite of the challenges, they have continued to provide exemplary service to our clients while taking on difficult and important cases. We are pleased that the 2020 partnership class reflects our overall gender balance, and we know they will help drive the firm forward as we embark on new and exciting matters for our clients,” said Managing Partner Jennifer Selendy.
Joy Odom represents clients in litigations and arbitrations involving structured financial products, securities, antitrust, and contractual disputes.

She earned her J.D. from UCLA School of Law.
Oscar Shine represents clients in securities class actions, multidistrict products liability litigations, labor and employment disputes, and government enforcement matters.
