About me

Jesse Van Sant’s practice focuses on the representation of counties, cities, law enforcement agencies, and public officials, with a particular emphasis on civil litigation, code enforcement, and the defense of actions arising under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Mr. Van Sant received his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Georgia School of Law, where he finished as a Robert E. Knox Scholar. He was named a Georgia Rising Star in the area of local and municipal law by Super Lawyers magazine, and he has been invited to speak at legal seminars sponsored by the State Bar of Georgia and the Association of County Commissioners of Georgia on topics relating to whistleblower litigation, anti-retaliation laws, ethics in public law, immunity-based defenses to lawsuits against public officials and employees, and legal relationships between county commissioners and constitutional officers. He also serves as the prosecutor for the Magistrate Court of Forsyth County and the Magistrate Court of Cherokee County. Mr. Van Sant is admitted to practice in the Supreme Court of Georgia, the Court of Appeals of Georgia, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Georgia, and in all of Georgia's Superior Courts, State Courts, Magistrate Courts, and Probate Courts. Before joining Jarrard & Davis, Mr. Van Sant primarily represented counties, financial institutions, insurance companies, and corporations in complex litigation and appellate matters, and he gained extensive litigation and trial experience in the areas of medical malpractice and catastrophic personal injury. He is fluent in Dutch.
