Jay A. Hebert
As a well-established defense lawyer within the Tampa Bay legal system, Jay Hebert puts his clients first. He is dedicated to serving his clients not only by navigating them through the complicated and daunting court system but also by helping them stay on the right side of the law.
“One of the reasons people come to me is that we try not to put a Band Aid on the problem. I get to the root of the problem and solve it. I consider myself more of a problem solver. That’s how I have distinguished my career from many others.”

He is a member of the American Bar Association, Association of Trial Lawyers of America, Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, St. Petersburg Bar Association, Pinellas County Trial Lawyers Association, and the Pinellas County Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and Phi Alpha Delta Fraternity.
Since 2010, Mr. Hebert has spoken to numerous school groups and parents about the possible negative impact the internet has on friendships and relationships.
