About me

Charles B. Jimerson founded the predecessor firm to Jimerson & Cobb, P.A. and continues to lead its preeminent business litigation practice. Mr. Jimerson represents various corporations, entrepreneurs, financial institutions, and small- and mid-size businesses in business litigation matters ranging from commercial contract disputes and business torts to real estate, construction, bankruptcy and foreclosure proceedings. He is an AV rated lawyer, recognized by his peers as having the highest level of ethical standards and professional ability. In obtaining Board Certification, Mr. Jimerson has earned recognition for having the highest standards of skills, specialty knowledge, proficiency, professionalism and ethics as determined by the Florida Bar.

Born in Sarasota, FL, Charles B. Jimerson, Esq. is a 7th generation Floridian. Upon graduation from Venice High School (Venice, FL), Mr. Jimerson enlisted in the U.S. military to serve his country and earn money for college. His tireless work ethic and ability to adapt and overcome challenging situations enabled him to graduate with highest honors and in the top two percent in every academic class he had in his secondary education prior to law school (undergraduate, professional certifications, and technical schools), and in the top one-third of his law school class. A graduate of the Lundy-Fetterman School of Business at Campbell University (Buies Creek, NC), Mr. Jimerson earned his Bachelor of Business Administration degree Summa Cum Laude with highest honors. While attending Campbell University, Mr. Jimerson contemporaneously served as an active duty Combat Meteorologist in the United States Air Force, participating in various worldwide operational missions and earning Airman of the Year honors. During his tenure, Mr. Jimerson was the youngest operationally certified meteorological forecaster in U.S. Air Force history.

Mr. Jimerson also received a Professional Certification in Marketing with an emphasis in Sports Marketing from the University of Kentucky. He obtained his Juris Doctorate at the University of Florida Levin College of Law, serving as the President, Officer and Executive Director to several student-run organizations. Mr. Jimerson also participated in the London Legal Consortium in London, England, where he met his wife, Ashley. Mr. Jimerson was a Harry T. Goodmark scholar, and was named Who’s Who in American Colleges and Universities during his matriculation at the University of Florida.

Focusing his practice on commercial litigation, creditor’s rights and commercial collections, construction litigation and banking law, Mr. Jimerson has experience in all stages of litigation, including alternative dispute resolution, negotiation of settlement and litigation of multifaceted commercial matters up through and including trial. Prior to founding the firm, Mr. Jimerson practiced at prominent Jacksonville-based commercial litigation and construction litigation boutiques. Mr. Jimerson has received several business and legal recognitions, including multi-year listings for Super Lawyers and Florida Trend Legal Elite Up and Comers, The Jacksonville Business Journal’s 40 under 40, and Leadership Jacksonville.

           Mr. Jimerson resides in Ortega with his wife, Ashley, their children, Lila and Ford, and their two dogs, Hank (Bassett Hound) and Audrey (Weimaraner). Though his free time is very limited, his non-professional interests are SEC football, pickup basketball, traveling, television binge watching, twitter parody accounts, obscure oyster bars, jam bands, toddler dance parties and lazy Sunday mornings reading the New York Times and watching Meet the Press.

    I had the honor of working against Mr. Jimerson in a very contentious dispute involving the collection of a judgment. Although our respective clients disagreed vehemently regarding the underlying liabilities, there could be no disagreement regarding how competently and zealously Mr. Jimerson advocated for his client. In the end, we were able to construct an "outside-the-box" settlement that was acceptable to both parties, saving both sides tens-of-thousands of dollars in litigation expenses. I believe that without the professionalism demonstrated by Charles Jimerson such a result would not have been possible.
