SMALL FIRM. BIG FIGHT. WHEN THE STATE POINTS ITS HEAVY FINGER AT YOU, POINT BACK.

Originally from Atlanta, Illinois, Jason received his bachelors degree in criminology from Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida in 2002.  Thereafter, Jason attended Florida Coastal School of Law in Jacksonville, Florida, where he earned his Juris Doctor.  After two and a half years at FCSL, Jason finished law school as a visiting student at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.

 

While in law school, Jason was a member of Florida Coastal’s Mock Trial team and served as clerk for the Honorable Buddy D. Perry, senior circuit court judge for the 12th judicial district of Tennessee.  While serving as Judge Perry’s clerk, Jason drafted numerous opinions for review, all being submitted for record, and none being overturned on appeal.

 

Upon completion of his clerkship with Judge Perry, Jason served as a law clerk for the AV rated firm of Butler, Vines, and Babb in Knoxville, TN.  While at Butler, Vines, and Babb, Jason focused primarily in complex medical malpractice litigation and serious personal injury claims.

 

Upon graduating from law school and successfully passing the Tennessee Bar Exam, Jason relocated to Sarasota, Florida where he went to work for the 12th Judicial Circuit State Attorney’s Office.  Jason is a former Assistant State Attorney who has successfully tried and won numerous cases with the focus on Driving Under the Influence.

 

After serving his tenure with the State Attorney’s office, Jason was chosen to work for The Law Office of Finebloom & Haenel.  While at Finebloom & Haenel, Jason focused on DUI defense, earning several downcharges to reckless driving for his clients.  Additionally, Jason argued many successful motions to suppress evidence, and earned many dismissals of his clients’ cases.

 

In his short time in the Bay area, Jason has earned a reputation throughout the legal community as being a fair and reasonable attorney who fiercely represents his clients in the pursuit of the most favorable result for them.

 

Jason is a member of the Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.

Wonderful Attorney
This lawyer answered every single one of my calls and emails and kept me informed, even after hours every step of the way. He got the bogus charge dismissed completely. He is a caring and compassionate attorney who I would highly recommed to anyone. The people around me were also impressed at how hard he worked for my husband and kept me strong and he was supportive all the way. I can't say enough good things about Jason. If you ever need an attorney, call Jason Mayberry. He cares when no one else does and he will truly fight for you and your rights.

A brilliant lawyer
The position of defense in a legal conflict is a stressful situation and can result in great harm to your reputation. Jason Mayberry is a professional at alleviating this stress and putting your case on a fast track to resolution. Mr. Mayberry’s immediate response and arduous negotiations resulted in a great turn out in my favor. As his client, he genuinely will have your best interest in mind. He always took the time to explain his plans for my case and kept me informed throughout its progression. I felt my case was the top priority to Mr. Mayberry and even with the evidence and details of the allegations stacked against me; the DUI was dropped and I do not have this black mark on my credentials. His legal finesse, vast knowledge, and experience are the best resources to have on your side. I have the highest opinion and respect of him and recommend his superior expertise to anyone in need of an attorney.

Elite Lawyer
Jason Mayberry changed my life. I would highly recommend him to anyone including my family and friends. When you're feeling lost with so many questions and "what if's", Mr. Mayberry is a trustworthy voice of reason. He is honest, transparent, and understanding. He is very clear with communication and fair with expectations. Most importantly, Mr. Mayberry made me feel heard, reassured, and hopeful. He was able to give me the best possible outcome and I will always be thankful! There are many great lawyers out there, but Jason Mayberry is one of the elite that cares about his clients and will go above and beyond for them!

Saved our Dad
Our family will be forever grateful to Mr. Mayberry for helping our Father. My Father committed a sexual offense that was not in his normal character. He was 82 years old, and was looking at spending the rest of his remaining life in prison. Mr. Mayberry went above and beyond to research the law and represented our Father successfully in a case involving vascular dementia. My Father has now been able to live peacefully and safely with the supervision and support he needs as he slowly fades from our lives. I had to hire Mr. Mayberry from another state, with no clue as to how to proceed. He was so helpful from the first consultation - which is free. He visited my Dad in jail to get a feel for the case - for free. He called me back, explained how felony sexual cases are prosecuted, and was committed to helping him not go to jail for his remaining years. Mr. Mayberry's honesty, thoroughness, and diligence made the 20 months go by smoothly. He is incredible at returning calls quickly to give updates on the court proceedings, as well as to answer any questions that come up during the process. You cannot go wrong by choosing him as your lawyer - if he cannot help you he will tell you so from the start. He will never leave you wondering what the heck is going on with your case. As I said at the start, we are forever grateful to Mr. Mayberry.

Representation at its finest
Jason is amazing. He is communicative, informative, insightful and empathetic. All of the things you’d hope for in someone defending not only your character but in some cases your livelihood. There was never a time I felt he was not comprehensively there for me. My case was resolved in a favorable manner, my life never had to stop as he facilitated the whole process on my behalf, I never had to goto court or anything too extensive. It was as pleasurable as an experience could be given the situation.

Can’t say enough good things about Jason
I have been thinking hard what to write, but I can’t put into words how great Jason Mayberry and his law firm is. I was wrongfully accused of a crime and the state was determined to try me even though I had a ton of evidence to dispute the charges. Jason fought tirelessly and a year and a half later the charges were finally dropped. Jason is a no nonsense guy. He tells you how it is and won’t give you false expectations. He is committed to getting his clients the best outcome possible. Jason had my back every step of the way and always kept me updated on everything. He’s a real professional and invests himself into the cases he takes on. I highly recommend Jason Mayberry to anyone needing a criminal attorney. He is a great guy and a great lawyer.

Best of the best!!
Jason and Barb were absolutely amazing! From the start of my case to the end. I was facing felony larceny for not returning a rental vehicle properly. It was so overwhelming and scary but Jadon was so calm and reassuring. Within 2 weeks time Jadon had my case DISMISSED and warrant dropped. He wasn’t money hungry like these other lawyers. Trust me I’m called them and they were outrageous. Jason truly wants to help you. I would never choose any one else!!

Saved my life. Literally !!
I’d like to say that I found Jason Mayberry after long research but I did not. I like his ad and called him. It was the best move I ever made. Jason put my wife and I at ease but yet kept it real and prepared us for what we were about to face. I can not say enough about all the hard work Jason did in my case but I saw the case he put together and I living the outcome. I made a big mistake in a drunken blackout that should have landed me in jail for 17+ months. Jason worked long and hard to get the best possible outcome ( community control And probation). Both of which were reduced by at least 50% due to hard work and Jason’s arguments in court. I witnessed his preparedness compared to the prosecutors and other attorneys, as did the Judge!!!!! Jason stayed with my case until the very end filing motions along the way when needed and always. And I mean always coming out on top! Almost 3 years later both my wife and I consider Jason Mayberry a friend and will call him anytime to say hi or if we have legal issues. I did t think this type of attorney existed today but it does. I highly recommend the Mayberry law firm !!

Saved My Life
I was in the Tampa area on a family vacation earlier this year, when I suddenly found myself facing a felony charge of child neglect. My world and life, it seemed, were headed for total disaster. I was facing having my very long, successful and spotless military career coming to a horrible end. I began desperately searching online for someone who could not only successfully defend me, but that I could also trust. An attorney that I could not only to trust to handle my case, but that would interact with me like a real person, and not just try to take to me the cleaners with legal fees. After speaking with about twenty local attorneys, I gave Jason a call. I liked what I read in the reviews about how he was like having both a good friend and a lawyer in your corner. And the fact that Jason loves to WIN!!! So I wouldn’t have to worry about some easy plea deal, or accepting anything less than victory in the name of easiness. After speaking with Jason on the phone, I stopped the search. There was just something about this friendly, No BS professional that told me this is the one. During my consultation, it was like talking to a long time buddy. I was totally at ease with his friendly demeanor, and very impressed by his knowledge and professionalism. During the consultation, Jason took his time and laid out a set of very well planned courses of action. Then he explained what the possible outcomes could be. He gave me a no BS honest assessment about our chances, stressing that nothing is ever guarenteed. more importantly, he put it to me in plain English. I left Tampa and headed back north to Ohio to await any updates. Jason went to work setting up and organizing everything in great detail. I provided him with documentation he requested from me for my case to construct a dry strong mitigation package to submit to the state. The process took a few months to come to fruition. In the meantime, I was dreading the possibility of a plea deal, a reduction of charges, diversion, or worst of all, a felony trial or conviction. During this waiting period, Jason would always provide me with updates, the course ahead, and of course tell me to keep my head up and hang in there buddy. Well, last week, Jason called me with the best news ever. Not only was the charge dropped, it was not even filed, CASE CLOSED!!!!! I couldn’t believe it. NIGHTMARE OVER!!! And Jason is now my new hero! What a friend, what a guy, what an Attorney!!!

The best lawyer I never met..
I found myself in a hoot of trouble while at Bush Gardens with my family. Long story short I was arrested for "strong arm robbery". Mr Mayberry was able to take care of my case with out me having to go to court at all. Actually he had my case dismissed without even going g to court period. He is a very good person, easy to talk to and most importantly he actually cares. I recommend Mr Mayberry for any of your charges from misdemeanor to federal.. He truly is a blessing.

Professional, Knowledgeable, and Honest
As a young professional, I ran into trouble that resulted in my first (and last) offense. This was something serious that left me extremely distressed and worried about the options I had. After researching many attorneys in the Tampa area, I decided to hire Jason Mayberry to represent me. I made this choice based on the length and type of his experience, his professionalism, honesty, reasonable fee, and how he made me feel as his client. He never sugarcoated anything but at the same time gave me hope. He never made any promises he wasn't able to keep, but he made sure to over-deliver on the outcome. I highly recommend Jason Mayberry.

Being a first time offender, I was reluctant to choose just any lawyer. Thankfully, I chose the right guy. Mr. Mayberry was extremely responsive to all of my communications and took care of the matter very quickly. He clearly knows the legal system very well and was able to get my felony case dismissed. I would recommended Mr. Mayberry to anyone seeking a defense attorney. Thank you!

Dui attorney Jason Mayberry
Coming into a legal issue with absolutely no true knowledge of the law, Mr. Jason Mayberry was the answer. He embraced my lack of legal abilities and set out to help in any way possible. He literally took the time from his busy schedule to answer any and all of my questions. He is very strong in the knowledge of the law and had embraced the situation for what it was exactly. At any point in time the answers and guidance he provided for me were above and beyond! Sometimes its nice to have things broken down to "the average joe's" understanding and abilities. I will refer him to anyone at any point in time. Believe me he truly is a fantastic lawyer!! His name will NEVER leave my contact list. Thank you for your time and effort in my case.

Amazing outcome Outstanding Lawyer
I was in a very bad place with my license situation. I recently had two charges driving with a revoked license and leaving the scene of an accident (felony). Mr.Mayberry was able to get my charges reduced to a misdemeanor with no probation, and i am no longer an HTO driver my license has been reinstated and I'm back on the road. He was very helpful, honest and also understanding. If you are looking for a lawyer who is dedicated to your case, who works hard to get you the best outcome i highly recommend Mr. Jason Mayberry. A thousand more times thank you Jason you have exceeded my expectations I'm very thankful.

He is an awesome guy to say the least. He would answer all my calls and questions no matter how little or meaningless they were. Never made me feel stupid and was very honest about everything. He was even willing to work out a payment plan since I was hurting bad on money. If you're looking for good representation look no further!

Amazing lawyer and person!!
I recently spoke with Jason re: an important and urgent legal issue. Not only did he answer when I called but he took the time to do a consultation by phone to help me and was honest with me that my issue did not require an attorney!! I can't begin to tell you how shocked I was with his candidness, honesty and integrity! Jason saved me about $600 and still was able to help me. Although I did not hire him (or need to) I would in a heartbeat. He was compassionate and understanding without the usual judgement one would have expected to receive. If you need an attorney he is honest and the best choice!!
