Jamie Hernan has spent his career representing thousands of individuals and companies, helping them face complex legal issues head on, offering solutions and providing results. His career has taken him from a large, internationally renowned firm to building from scratch with two partners a firm into a strong medium sized firm that is the dominant player in its niche market to where he is today as a solo practitioner, finally able to focus purely on the practice of law without all of the distractions that come from managing a larger firm. Jamie is able to focus on you, his client, and he works hard to develop long term relationships built on a strong foundation of trust. After all, that is what most clients want – the focused attention of their attorney. And, of course, they want accessibility. Clients of Jamie have his personal cell phone number and know they can reach him whenever they need him.

After obtaining degrees from the University of Georgia in 1995 and Auburn University in 1996, Jamie graduated from Duke Law School in 2000. He is licensed to practice law in Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee.

Jamie believes strongly in the need to protect individual civil rights and the Constitution from legislative dilution, having advocated for years against unconstitutional local ordinances and state and federal legislation. He has served as the advocacy chair of the Atlanta chapter of AILA, a member of the legal committee of a major civil rights organization, board member to various grass roots organizations and as a member of the State Bar of Georgia’s Access to Justice committee.

Saved My Career
It's hard for me to go into detail about what Jamie did for me, but the simplest way to say it is that when no one else believed in me and the merits of my case - Jamie stepped up and delivered for me. Jamie helped me clear an issue that had previously caused me to fail a background check, lose my job, and end up nearly cast out of my industry. When he first returned my email approaching him for help, I was out of state, unemployed, and running out of time. The work that he did (for a reasonable rate) may very well have saved my career. Jamie was clear in his views and communicated with me consistently (including fielding my frequent "just checking in" emails with kindness). The contrast between his approach to helping me and my interaction with five other attorneys in my search for representation was as striking as the results that he delivered compared to their assurances that nothing could be done. I can't thank him enough.

Went Above and Beyond
I called Mr. Hernan late at night after an unfortunate event in the family that required an attorney who could revoke a warrant for an FTA. Although we did not retain him for our services, I wanted to say that he was extremely helpful, answered any and all questions we had, went out of his way to make calls and queries in the county regarding our matter and did all this in a very timely and professional manner. I wanted to express my gratitude for him being able to offer assistance and information in the middle of the night and will be sure to recommend him to anyone I know who could benefit from his expertise. Thank you!

Got me a great deal in my marijuana possession case
Jamie Hernan is a great lawyer. He got me the best possible deal that he could have under the circumstances of my case when I was arrested for marijuana possession.If I hadn't hired Jamie and decided to go with some crappy overworked public defender instead,I would've gotten twice as much time on probation as Jamie got me.Jamie got me half the amount of time on probation that Georgia usually gives for Marijuana possession.Plus the prosecutor really listened and negotiated with him,which is proof that Jamie is the real deal since the prosecutor took him seriously,where if it was some kid right out of law school or a public defender, the prosecutor would've said "Oh not this guy again,I'm not working anything out with him". Jamie always returned my phone calls and texts the same day,and he never sugarcoated anything,always giving me blunt,straight answers while simultaneously remaining polite and understanding.Even the judge commented on what a good deal Jamie got me.I would recommend him to anyone

Top-notch results in my personal injury claim
Attorney Hernan handled my automobile accident this year. He settled my claim for top dollar and kept me informed throughout the process. He listened to my concerns and made me feel that he gave my claim 100% of his effort.

Very Guenuine A++ Lawyer
Mr Hernan is a top notch lawyer who has genuine concern for the well-being of his clients. Even before hiring Mr. Hernan, he was concerned about me and my legal concerns. He is a very knowledgeable, honest, and trustworthy attorney who I wouldn't think twice before hiring. A+++++

Excellent Advice on Immigration
When I first called James' office, I was impressed that even though it wasn't in, I was transferred directly to his cell phone and was able to speak with him (rather than a secretary or aid). He offered excellent advice. We are applying for an Adjustment of Status because I'm a US citizen but my husband overstayed his Visa by 10 years. He was very honest, trustworthy and helpful.
