This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
When an attorney is censured it means he or she did something wrong but may still practice law. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Jami’s comment: “The big red exclamation point showing "Censured" by the state that looks bad right? Until you learn the whole story, that it was because the TN BOPR found I was guilty of "unauthorized practice of law" in TN even though this isn't true & I have always been correctly licensed to practiced law. That a competitor atty filed the complaint, that the TN Atty Gen, MS Atty Gen, and MS Bar found the claims baseless. Much more about this is on my website, please read the full story to see what you think!”

I'm not exactly sure what to write here. My pastor recommended that I talk with Jami and I hired him to help me with my divorce after I had a chance to meet and "interview" him. He may be the best listener I've ever met! I just thought my girlfriends were good listeners until I met him, but I was sooo surprised at the time he spent listening to me before he ever even started giving me advice. I can't say how much I appreciated that.
But besides the listening he also turned out to be pretty badass as a lawyer too:) I'm very happy that I was guided to him and hired him.

I spent several months deliberating over who to hire for my divorce. I didn't know who to use so I asked some of my friends and one of them who had recently gone through a divorce told me about her experience and actually recommended that I talk to her husband's attorney, Jami Ferrell. She said that she wished she had hired him instead of the attorney that she had used. I really couldn't believe that she recommended the attorney her husband used.
I ended up hiring him for my divorce and he did a great job in getting me alimony and child support. I told him that I didn't want to go through an drawn out and ugly divorce and he was really understanding about this. He was great in working to get my divorce without really completely screwing up the relationship between me and my now ex-husband. And that was really important to me since we see each other a lot because of our kids.
The things I liked about him were that he had a no BS approach and told me the good and bad stuff and what to expect (and not to expect), he didn't do a lot of extra stuff just to bump up my fees, and he was very honest and sincere. He also was really smart when it came to dealing with all our finances, he was pretty impressive when it came to working out all of our financial junk (it was crazy).
I strongly recommend him if you have to hire a divorce lawyer.

I hired another lawyer to represent me in my divorce first before I hired Jami and had a terrible experience. The first lawyer I used was impossible to communicate with and didn't seem to really care about my case. Then I called Jami after seeing a billboard and I'm glad I did.
He handled my divorce very professionally and I was really happy with how prepared he was. When we went to court the judge actually said they were impressed how well he he had everything in order. He told me what to expect to win on and what things I probably wouldn't win even if he did the best lawyering job ever and I appreciated that. Overall he was super smart, considerate and a hard-worker. I definitely endorse him.

I have been following Jami's career for several years, since meeting him online. He has been extraordinarily helpful in providing advice to other lawyers in the fields of personal injury and family law. Jami is one lawyer who truly cares about his clients and about the reputation of the legal profession. He is doing all he can to elevate the profession by providing exceptional service to his clients. I endorse him without reservation.
