About me

While many lawyers practice in downtown Jacksonville, Wayne R Compton has practiced in the north Jacksonville and Oceanway areas for over 40 years. Interest in the community stems from his father, who had his own newspaper route and later owned and operated a family grocery store. 


Wayne brings this sense of community and helping others to each of his clients. He feels that, while knowledge of the law is certainly important, the knowledge of how to deal with people is equally as important, if not more so. He is honest, down-to-earth, and easily approachable.
