Practice areas
  1. Criminal defense
    50%
    The criminal justice system is designed to protect the accused. A Defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty. Unfortunately, too many citizens do not know how to navigate the criminal justice system. This lack of knowledge can cause drastic results that can follow them around for the rest of their lives. When you are charged with a criminal offense you need an experienced attorney who truly believes in protecting your rights.

  2. Speeding and traffic ticket
    20%
    Every one of us has experienced some sort of traffic violation at some point during our driving history. Travelers oftentimes find themselves asking "what next" when they receive a traffic citation. A busy life may make it difficult for you to appear in court. A traffic violation such as failing to wear a seatbelt can end with your license being suspended or revoked if not handled correctly. We work to ensure that all traffic matters are disposed of in a manner to reduce consequences to clients.

       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.

Traffic Ticket
I had a traffic ticket from the summer and missed a court date. The courts wouldn't speak to me to plead my case. I found Attorney Jones online, he contacted me within 10 minutes of emailing him. Before hiring him as my lawyer he gave me the plan of action to handling my ticket. After being retained, he began working on my case right away. He accomplished everything on our action plan. He helped save my driving record, insurance rates, and additional court fees. He's amazing and I recommend him to anyone.

Kindness to a stranger
Today I reached out to Kevin Jones about a small business administration matter. He answered his own phone, listened to my reason for calling and offered a valued recommendation. He was sincerely engaged in our conversation and gave me a rare, uncommon sense of trust, professionalism and genuineness in the minutes we spoke. This never happens! Who does that these days - let alone a busy lawyer? All I can say is I’m so incredibly impressed that I will long remember him and gladly refer his services to a friend or stranger.

Excellent Lawyer
I recently hired Attorney Kevin Jones to represent me in a civil case that my wife’s ex-husband brought against me. Mr. Jones went above and beyond spending countless hours working on my case, he took my wife and I through the entire legal process step by step and ultimately had the case against me dismissed. If anyone ever needs an attorney then I would definitely recommend Attorney Kevin Jones.

Criminal Case Dismissal
He is a great lawyer! I appreciate Mr. Jones for representing me, and getting the case dismissed. He literally gave me a second chance, I got the help I needed because of him. I’m so happy I came across your name on Avvo. Also if a friend is in need of anything including a speeding ticket I’m sending them his way!

Awesome to have in our corner!
My husband and I were on the receiving end of a bogus no-contact order. It was a very stressful time for us, and Kevin provided us with a calming voice of reason and understanding. He was always accessible by phone and email, which we appreciated. Kevin helped her navigate two court dates and got the charges dismissed with prejudice - we were THRILLED!!

Excellent
This is the second time I have hired Mr. Jones to represent me. Both times Mr. Jones showed the utmost professionalism, understanding, and courtesy. The first time there was no actual courtroom involvement, but the most recent case he represented me in the courtroom and I could not have been more satisfied with the outcome. Highly recommended.

License Restoration - Excellent Service: Resourceful and Efficient
My work schedule, and at one point, my financial status, made it difficult for me to follow through with court appearances/costs etc. when necessary. This caused a snowball effect for my license which was a challenge for me to resolve for several years. Kevin Jones was the only attorney that I reached out to online that responded immediately. It's difficult for me to talk on the phone at my job but he was always accessible AND responsive via email and text. I was able to pay online with flexible payment options, he didn't require any unnecessary face-to-face consultations or court appearances and he was able to resolve all of my issues quickly and with minimal extra fees. He also reminded me when there were tasks that I needed to complete in order for him to handle my cases on time. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. While I hope to not need an attorney again any time soon, I would definitely reach out to Kevin Jones again if I do.

Mr. Jones was very helpful
My experience with Mr. Jones was positive from the first moment we started to work on my case - failing to yield right of way. His answers to my questions were always clear and complete. He helped me dismissed my case, so I can highly recommended him.

After paying another lawyer and being told there was nothing he could do. Mr. Jones came in and fixed my case; no problem. I am very impressed with Mr.Jones' work and will definitely hire him again if the situation ever arises.

I can't say enough positive things about Kevin E Jones!
I highly recommend Mr. Jones services to anyone who needs legal representation. He was very professional, compassionate, and proficient with my speeding/traffic cases. My license had been suspended for years, and I had multiple cases that I needed to handle before I could get my license back. I felt like the journey was going to be tough, and at times discouraging...but Mr. Jones proved that with great legal representation-anything is obtainable! I highly recommend him as he did an amazing job!!

Extremely proficient and reliable lawyer
I write this review as someone who has had very little interactions with the criminal justice system however, when an ugly situation arose involving domestic violence accusations Mr.Kevin Jones was very helpful and precise with the information and service he provided to me. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a determined and committed lawyer. Upon the conclusion of my case hearing and with the guidance of Mr. Jones, I was cleared of all charges and I am now successfully working in my career of choice.

Kevin Jones Review
Mr. Jones was definitely God sent and a ram in the thicket! Talk about on time! Mr. Jones was prompt, communicative, and thorough! although I was extremely nervous about how things would pan out, Mr. Jones assured me things would be handled and was always very honest. Although the time was short and prayerfully I won't need a lawyer again in Durham, I would hire him without a doubt! This process was smooth and Im sure it's because I was given the best of the best in Durham, NC. Definitely a well respected man of his word!
