Aggressive Representation For All Criminal & Traffic Matters.
Attorney Jones is a graduate of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. He came to North Carolina as a part of the Teach for America program in 1997. Mr. Jones taught 5th grade at Braswell Elementary School, in Rocky Mount, NC for three years. It was during this time as a classroom teacher that he began to see how he could combine his passion for protecting the rights of others and his love for law. In August 2000, he took the next step on the road to reaching his lifelong dream of becoming an attorney by attending North Carolina Central University School of Law.
After receiving his law degree and being licensed to practice law in the state of North Carolina, Attorney Jones began working as an Assistant Public Defender in Durham County. The 4 years he spent as a Public Defender allowed him to see how people can become lost in the justice system and their lives ruined when they don't have passionate, professional, and experienced representation.
When Attorney Jones established our Law Office in Durham, NC, it was his goal to create a law firm where all clients are informed about their rights, guided through complex legal issues, and protected from those who abuse the justice system.
