About Me

The Jesse James Law Firm frequently handles personal injury and criminal defense matters across the State of Florida with our primary client base located in Pinellas County, Hillsborough County, Pasco County, Manatee County, Sarasota County, St. Lucie County, and Palm Beach County. 

Our firm does not treat clients like a number of high-volume firms. Our cases and clients are carefully selected and all of our clients are treated with respect. From the beginning to the end of your case, you can expect to meet with a licensed Florida attorney, not a paralegal, not a case manager and not a legal secretary. Simply put, if you hire the Jesse James Law Firm, your case will get the personal attention it deserves.

Please visit our website at I hope you will find our website informative and helpful. Our staff is standing by ready to help you with your legal issue. Please use the "Contact Us" page for a fast and efficient response, or feel free to call our office. We are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week, so do not put off your concerns until tomorrow.
