Jason Hicks is a practicing Attorney licensed by the Florida Bar. Born in 1978, Jason was raised in Brevard County, Florida. He attended Titusville High School and graduated in 1996. Jason graduated from the University of Central Florida in Orlando in 2002 where he graduated with Honors as a History major. Jason then attended the Stetson University College of Law in Gulfport, Florida, earning a Jurisdoctorate degree in 2007.

 

A love for Brevard County brought Jason back home after law school. Like many young lawyers, Jason went on to the State Attorney's Office as a prosecutor with hopes of getting substantial trial experience.  For him, this plan was a success.  Jason had the opportunity to tackle many facets of the litigation experience; he has trial experience that many attorneys in private practice take a decade to accomplish.  In 2008, Jason was nominated and selected by the Brevard County Bar Association for the Judge T. Mitchell Barlow Award.  This award is given annually to only one young lawyer among all attorneys in Brevard County.  This award signifies that the recipient has maintained and is being recognized for the pursuit of the highest ideals and tenets of the legal profession: character, competence, and commitment.

 

Jason has literally handled thousands of criminal cases from start to finish. His criminal trial experience includes Driving Under the Influence, Driving While License Suspended, Drug Possession cases, Battery cases, and many other criminal matters. Although Jason’s practice mainly focuses on litigating DUI and other misdemeanor and felony criminal matters, he also handles Family Law and Personal Injury cases. Jason’s office is located in Cocoa Beach, Florida on S. Orlando Avenue (A1A).

Traffic Citation
Attorney Hicks filled in for my hired attorney when he unfortunately was unable to make my court appointment. After receiving a briefing regarding my deal, he was able to confidently relay the information to the judge and assure the deal remained the same. I appreciate his assistance and would highly recommend him for anyone dealing with a traffic citation.

Outcome exceeded my expectations, by far the best representation I have had
I hired Mr. Hicks for a felony possession charge and couldn't have asked for better representation. Extremely knowledgeable and sharp. Not sure how but he was able to negotiate ridiculous deal where I avoided probation and saved a massive amount of money.

Very Professional
Hiring Jason is a no brainer. Jason is very professional yet down to earth and connects with the client immediately. He is very knowledgeable about the law, very informative as to what is going to take place and what needs to be done and he tells you straight up. He is not like others that just tells you what they think you want to hear. I wouldn't hire anyone else. It all starts with his associate at the front desk when you walk in. She is not only very helpful but a absolute delight to talk to.

He's in your corner
Jason was able to take a very difficult 2nd DUI case and mitigate it to the minimum penalties, the best possible result with what we were presented with. He is highly analytical when it comes to the case and will find a way a way to have a positive outcome. He is VERY reasonable and kind spirited.

Fantastic Experience
I went to Jason Hicks after being arrested and charged for my second DUI. Right from the beginning he was incredibly accessible, friendly, and professional. He went above and beyond with explaining the case, and all possible outcomes, and what he was going to do. The fact that he used to prosecute DUI's is obvious, and he knew everything we could do for my case to get the best outcome. Ultimately he was able to get me a plea deal that dropped my second DUI arrest to a reckless, 1 year probation, eligible for early termination at 6 months, state minimum fine, no drug/alcohol testing. This was far, far better than I was anticipating originally, and I am grateful for his experience and help. He was also more than happy to help me with any questions I had after the case was closed, and has always encouraged me to reach out to him with any questions or concerns I have. I highly recommend him to anybody with a DUI arrest.

Thank You Jason!!
I was arrested for a second DUI. I was on both drugs and alcohol at the time. Jason had my PTR... (weekly random drug testing & probation officer visits) stopped by the judge. I thought THAT was a miracle. He then plea bargained my case down to reckless driving with no points. During all this time Jason returned all my phone calls, let me know all avenues available, showed complete knowledge of the system, and always treated me with respect. I feel very grateful to him. I doubt if anyone else could have what he did.
