Kemay Jackson of KL Jackson Law


Kemay’ thrives from taking cases that most lawyers view as impossible to win.  She is a lawyer who fights for her clients and does not mind going to court rather that settling out of court.  This is mainly because Kemay is highly skilled at cross examining and has mastered the art of creating reasonable doubt.  She is known for always getting the best deal for her clients based on the charges that they are up against. She also states, “No one is as bad as their worst day.”  Kemay shares that this statement helps to make her a better person.  It helps her not to be so judgmental, and it also gives her the passion to practice criminal law. While criminal law is Kemay’s first love she admits that her love and passion for helping people is what has led Kemay to specialize in other areas of law such as family law and immigration law.  Regardless of the type of law that she is practicing, Kemay is committed to helping those who are not able to help themselves.    


Kemay’s accomplishments boast of graduating cum laude while earning a Bachelors degree in Criminal Law from the University of Central Florida and a Law degree accompanied by a Family Law Certificate from one of the top law schools in Florida, the University of Florida.  

In the world of law today, Kemay is a connected lawyer who is a current member of the Gwinnett Bar Association, the Georgia Haitian American Association, the Georgia Association of Black Women Attorney, Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys, the Haitian American Association as well as the Atlanta bar Association.

Twice in 2 years
I’ve worked with this firm twice in the past 2 years. Very helpful and responsive. Worked with her during COVID-19 from across the country and her team still made sure I was aware of everything going on with my case. I can’t thank them enough.

Great Attorney
Kemay helped me immensely during my contempt case with my ex wife. I tried to do it myself at first, and it had negative consequences for me at the beginning. However, after hiring Kemay, she was able to quickly resolve my contempt case, and was able to help me modify my decree to a reasonable amount and added some other things that helped me coparenting with my ex wife during my contempt hearing for my child support and other costs. She was able to help me navigate through some really tense times, and added a lot of comfort to me knowing I had her in my corner come court time. I have worked with other divorce attorneys over 11 years, and she was by far the best. I got the feeling she truly cared about me and the overall effect it would have on me in the future and with being involved with my son. Only thing I regret is not having her at the beginning of my case.

A tenacious compassionate and well versed attorney!
“Attorney Jackson was not only a beacon of hope but she was extremely supportive for me when my options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution was iffy. Not only was she able to defend me from unjust and unlawful actions bought on by my HOA, her enthusiastic and empathetic demeanor offered emotional support and inspired me to never be bullied again. Ms. Jackson's knowledge of the law is impressive and wide ranging. This is not my first time retaining Ms. Jackson and I can say without reservation she's "My Attorney" if I ever need legal guidance. I would recommend Attorney Kemay L. Jackson not just in Gwinnett but Georgia!”

Outstanding Representation
I was arrested due to an error. My license was suspended unlawfully due to an error, Ms Kemay represented me, not only did she get my case dismissed, I was awarded my bond money back. Thank you Ms Jackson for representing me and helping me get my Liscense back.

This Woman Knows The Law and Will Defend to The End!
Ms. Jackson, defended my son on a charge he was sure to loss without good representation. I was in fear for my son’s reputation, and his future with these charges. My son is disable and has been targeted for his illness, by the city police in our county. Ms. Jackson was referred to me by previous client . I called her left a message, and she called me back with in a day. We spoke about my son’s case, I was really specific, and she asked for the facts I had and she did the rest. I was mostly impressed with her style and tenacious approach to facts. Very professional in every regard and is worth every dime you spend on her representing you or a family member. It was a blessing. My son was release, charges were dropped and he was home, getting the help he needed medically.

Professional Review of Kemay Jackson
If you are looking for an attorney who really cares about YOU AND YOUR situation, then Kemay will be a dream come true. I have never had to seek out legal services before, and the situation that I was dealing with was highly emotional. She listened and legitimately was compassionate towards me and my family. She could feel the pain that we were going through, and she responded in a way that I was not expecting. I guess sometimes attornies can be portrayed as hard core and untrustworthy in the media, but Kemay does not fit that stereotype. She is extremely knowledgeable of the law, and I felt confident that the situation would be handled. If I EVER have any other legal issues, she will be the first person that I call. Besides having a kind spirit, she is expeditious in getting things done. I called her to see when she was going to get started, and she was already handling the situation! I was floored. If you want a personable experience backed by expertise, you have found the right attorney. Don't look any further!

Did Nothing!
I hired Ms. Jackson in March to represent my son in a juvenile court case dated for April. Soon after hiring Ms. Jackson the courts closed due to COVID. The courts were closed for a few weeks at best. I heard from Ms. Jackson, once in May to inquire whether we received a new court date. I never heard from her again. At the end of August, I reached out to her to request a refund since we had no idea when and if the case would be heard, and she had been holding my money for 5 months. I explained that if we did go to court, I would be happy to rehire her. Ten minutes, later Ms. Jackson called me and stated she contacted the court and the case had been dismissed in April. The case was dismissed based on the court deciding it would not be in the childs’ best interest to move forward. Ms. Jackson did absolutely nothing to get to this resolve and feels that she is entitled to 100% of the $1500 retainer. It was pure happenstance that Ms. Jackson was on the case when it was dismissed. She knew nothing about the decision that took place 4 months ago and had nothing to do with the outcome. This is not someone you want to do business with!

Look into a different lawyer that puts you first as a client
I met with attorney Jackson maybe 1 time and the case took about 3 years to settle. I’m the beginning she never stated to me she had no experience with accidents. I should have been warned about that matter firsthand. She barely contacted me and when I contacted her she was always too busy for me. I also looked into my case and apparently it was sold to the insurance company so I did not receive any kind of settlement. She received at least 35% of the money and the test went to bills. Long story short do yourself a favor and choose another route because this office is not the right option.
