About me

There are nearly 85,000 lawyers licensed to practice law in the State of Florida. Of those attorneys, only 384 individuals have been recognized by the Florida Bar as being “Experts” in Criminal Defense. In 2013 the Florida Bar certified Mr. Jones as a “Board Certified Expert in Criminal Trials,” in recognition of his professionalism, expertise, and accomplishments in the courtroom. Only Board Certified attorneys are allowed to call themselves “Experts” or “Specialists.” Mr. Jones has truly demonstrated criminal defense expertise throughout his career.


 


In the past 6 years, Mr. Jones has tried over 85 criminal jury trials, winning more than 70% of the time. His clients have been acquitted of 1st Degree Murder, Attempted 1st Degree Murder, Attempted 1st Degree Murder of a Law Enforcement Officer, Attempted 2nd Degree Murder, Lewd and Lascivious Molestation, Check Fraud, Marijuana and Cocaine Possession, D.U.I., Driving on a Suspended License, Battery, Assault… the list goes on.


 


Mr. Jones has represented thousands of citizens accused of every type of criminal charge at both the State and Federal levels. Mr. Jones has enjoyed protecting his clients from looming government sanctions, no matter how big or small the case, ranging from simple Municipal Ordinance violations, like an “Open Container” charge, to driving offenses, including D.U.I., to drug possession and trafficking cases, to violent offenses, including Battery, Assault, and Robbery, to Sex Crimes, to complicated “White Collar” offenses, like Racketeering and Fraud, all the way to 1st Degree and Capital Murders.
