Great for HOA disclosures and violation letters
I am an HOA board member and decided to hire an attorney for sending violation letters and reviewing some disclosures that we had issues with homeowners. Blair was very responsive and provided service with a fair price. I highly recommend his service!

Very professional and helpful all the way along
We hired Blair under a very urgent situation several years ago because an industry insider recommended Blair to us. We were told he is very nice and experienced. Blair helped us through the case very smoothly. After a few years, we came across an issue related to that case and hired Blair again. He immediately offered help . That issue was not easy to handle but he never gave up and was very responsive and professional. In the end with his persistent efforts, the issue was resolved. We recommend Blair because he is a very nice person in the first place. He really cares about his clients and doesn't just work for money. Secondly he is very experienced and sophisticated. He gave us very good advice during the whole process and his insights were proved to be right consistently. He will be very valuable to those in need of help.

One of the best lawyer in Orlando
I had a rather messy situation with my employer last year regarding my contract and needed a lawyer. A lawyer friend of mine suggested to contact Mr. Jackson. We had an initial meeting where Mr Jackson listened, took notes and asked questions. On our second meeting he explained my options and made suggestions on how we should proceed. I hired him there because he was very clear, concise and forthcoming. The case resulted in my favor thanks to him. I highly recommend him if you need a lawyer for employment and labor disputes.

Blair T Jackson Client Review
In November of 2004, my children and I were involved in a serious car accident in which I was injured. Thankfully, my husband contacted Mr. Jackson to help us navigate the process as we had never been involved in a situation like this. From the first phone call his calm and caring demeanor set us at ease and gave us full confidence that we were in good hands. Since the accident was caused by the other driver, his insurance company and ours, at times, were trying to give us the run around. Once Mr. Jackson stepped in, the ‘games’ stopped, and we received a check to replace my vehicle in a matter of days. My injuries were more extensive than we first thought and again, Mr. Jackson stepped in and helped us navigate and collect all relevant information and documents that eventually led to a settlement. We are forever grateful and appreciate his professional and personal attention! I highly recommend Blair Jackson.

Exceptional Lawyer and Person
Mr. Jackson helped me to get the best possible result in a difficult case. He was always available thru the whole process. He was upfront and honest from the very beginning about the costs, process and possible outcomes of my case. He was always prepared and very knowledgeable about the specifics of the relevant law. I was very happy in the end about the outcome of a very difficult case. I felt he got the best deal for me. I highly recommend him.

Never truly felt represented
Hired based on employer's reputation for the negotiation of my separation from a Fortune 1000 company. Never felt represented. Would receive very brief email replies from his phone. He went on vacation unannounced with less than a week before the deadline of my signature required. Felt abandoned. Would not recommend.
