  • Jonathan Jay Kirschner

    Jim successfully has made the transition from effective, aggressive prosecutor to aggessive, effective criminal defense lawyer. He is well liked by his colleagues, the prosecutors, judges and other court personnel. His skill level is extremely high, and he manifests no reluctance to "take it to the mat", i.e., go to trial, when necessary, while still maintaining the good relations with prosecutors that enables him to negotiate favorable pleas when that is the right answer in a case. Jim keeps up on the latest developments in both Florida substantive and procedural law, and provides thoughtful and caring service to his clients. In a community filled with "average" lawyers, and lawyers who call themselves "criminal defense lawyers" Jims ethics and professionalism distinguish him from his colleagues.
