About Jane

Learn Jane’s areas of practice.

I was born in the United States, the daughter of immigrants from South Korea. My parents arrived with $50 in their pockets, and, from these humble beginnings, my father established a career as a surgeon, as well as working his way up to the rank of Colonel in the U.S. Army National Guard. He stated that he wanted to repay this country for the opportunity it provided him.

As you might expect, I was taught the value of hard work. I was valedictorian of my high school class, a National Merit Scholar, and earned a four-year full scholarship to college. I bring my work ethic to my law practice every day. I go above and beyond for my clients – to quote one former employee, I beat the dead horse and then resurrect it to beat it some more! I am stubborn, determined, and meticulous in my work. Having honed my trial skills over 24 years, I believe I can win any jury trial that is objectively “winnable.”

If you retain me to represent you, you can expect me to bring many years of legal experience and relentless hard work to your case. My goal is that my clients should have every advantage that the best attorney can bring to their case. I would be honored to accept your case and look forward to representing you with dedication and integrity.

Divorce bad, Jane good
I retained Jane for a rather nasty divorce that lasted over a year. My ex-wife went for the jugular, and had lots of advantages: it was a long term marriage, we had kids, and she made a lot less than I did. FL law is also rather antiquated, which didn't help either. My wife and her lawyer didn't make it easy for us, and there were some bumps in the road, but I'm happy with the end result. Jane was very professional, and a pleasure to work with.

A Blessing in Difficult Times
I employed Jane Park to help me terminate from a particularly challenging probation. Despite COVID and the Holiday season, Ms. Park continued to communicate with the ASA in pursuit of my freedom. We persevered...and I didn't even have to set foot in a courtroom this time! I can't promise anything because each case is different, but I couldn't be more pleased with Jane Park and her firm. They were understanding, empathetic and got results!

Honest and Dedicated
I contacted Ms Parks in regard to my boyfriends pov case and couldn't be more pleased, she was straightforward and honest and when his case was over she had done exactly what she said she would do. I especially appreciate the fact the she is easy to reach and answers emails promptly and her staff went out of the way to make everything go smoothly. We highly recommend her and are eager to work with her again on an upcoming divorce.

Amazingly Aggressive for Clients
Ms. Park fought endlessly for me to win my case and we won! She was always available for communication, whether it was via telephone or email. I thank you from the bottom of my heart Ms Park for fighting for my good name. My daughters thank you. If 10 stars were available, you would earn them hands down!

Fantastic legal adviser and attorney
Over the past fifteen years, I have had to seek and retain the advice and legal counsel for various reasons including real estate, tax, criminal for my son, and family law. 75% of the monies I have spent over the years have been to retain legal counsel for my son who has had alcohol and addiction issues during this time when most judges and district attorneys feel incarceration is the best cure for these very real issues. During the last two years, and after losing faith in two lawyers who had taken a lot of money from me, with little or no real solutions and or resolve or relief, I asked a friend in the Daytona area to suggest a lawyer I might try. I was given Jane's name and have been proud to say that she represented my son in the most professional and knowledgeable manner as possible. I was very satisfied with her abilities to read the law and to communicate freely all of the time. When I needed to talk to Jane or email her, I was always answered in a very expeditious manner, which sometimes in the past, has been the obstacle to excellent representation. Let's face it! Attorneys are very hard to pin down, even when you have already given large retainers.. Plus, trying to attain communication from their secretaries is another complaint I never had with Jane. She is incredible and extremely intelligent.

I can never pay her enough for what she did.
A man was falsely accused in two states of 4 counts of sexually related child charges. Jane was a default attorney due to conflicts with defender's office. God sent us to the right person. Aside from her extreme professional demeanor and equivalent knowledge, her humility and willingness to listen to what was a really wild set of circumstances set her apart of other "I have seen it before" attorneys. She didn't know it, but because she listened and followed our input, she saved his life. He would have committed suicide in jail. The prosecutor gave better and better plea deals, but we all dug in and after due diligence, the victim and her credibility because less of an asset for the prosecutor and more of a liability. Still, offers that anyone else would have encouraged their client to take, and she did, but went with our wishes. As a result the case was dropped here and then in Illinois. The man was innocent and to Jane, that mattered. I have always said that she was not compensated fairly by the state. I plan to fix that someday.... somehow.

wonderful lawyer
Ms. Park was my lawyer. she did a great job on my case. She answered every email and phone call I made. She did a great job on my family law case and got me what I wanted. She explained things so I could understand what was going on with the case every step of the way. She fought for what I wanted and made sure to be very attentive in mediation. She ask if I was okay every time we spoke or I seen her. She asked about my children and how they were. She knows the law and will fight for you and what you want. Ms. Park will explain the law so you can understand it.

Professional and qualified representation.
Jane was retained for a family member relating to a homicide. He did not do it and was able to get those charges dropped. She was thorough and professional and treated us with respect and consideration. She always responded to our calls and emails in a timely manner. She diligently worked to prove his innocence and we are forever grateful.

Jane is a great attorney who worked very hard for me. I was facing a speeding ticket that I could not afford as a single Mother. The ticket was dropped much to my surprise. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a good and aggressive attorney.

Back to normal
Ms. Park was given my case with no real chance of winning. (Plea bargain) convicted felon who never had the opportunity of a payed lawyer. She came in and played all the cards on the table. Not once did she say she would win. What she did do was give me her reassurance that I was not forgotten. In many ways she did this. Was I worried, YES. She remained calm and straightforward throughout. I have been able to get my life back thanks to her. She is diligent don't let her small stature fool you.

Criminal Defense
Ms. Park was most helpful and knowledgeable with Florida criminal defense law. She was prompt in returning calls, emails, and or texts, and showed real concern for her client, my daughter. Although the court refused to dismiss the charge, which was not the fault of my daughter, Ms. Park did make sure the judge was aware of my daughter's innocence of the charge. We were very grateful for Ms. Park's diligence and help in negotiating through the criminal justice system.

The best Criminal Attorney arround
Ms. Park helped get me the best plea deal and got all the charges dropped from my record. She understood I didn't have a ton of money lying around so she allowed me to do a very reasonable payment plan. she quoted me $1500.00 less than all other attorneys in the area. She made it very easy so I didn't have to set foot in a court room. She email me regularly about my case. She sat down with me and explained the worst and best outcomes possible. I recommend her to everyone I know.

excellent experience with this attorney
I was a client of Ms. Park's and had been concerned after reading the negative review that has been posted. Ms. Park remembered which client had this concern and showed me the Clerk's records that proved she had made no errors in representing the client. Ms. Park had filed the requisite paperwork to waive both her appearance as well as her client's. The client was, however, erroneously arrested for failure to appear, and then ordered to be "immediately" released, as there had, in fact, been a clerical error. Ms. Park is an excellent attorney but cannot prevent everyone else in the system from making a mistake. She did the best possible job in my case, getting my charge dismissed.

Very lazy lawyer
I went to prison for something i did not do. Ms. Park would never return my phone calls or e mails she would not argue my case with the state at all. All she wanted was an easy plea deal. I paid her a lot of money for nothing.
Response from Jane Park November 18, 2016
I would be interested to know which client posted this, since I cannot recall a case where I have failed to return phone calls or emails and would not "argue the case with the state at all." I have been practicing criminal defense for over 22 years and have represented thousands of defendants charged with crimes ranging from first degree murder to disorderly conduct. I pride myself on my diligence in communicating with my clients and in exhausting all options to try to obtain the best result for them. I would be happy to discuss this client's result with him/her and explain the efforts I made on his/her behalf.
