Jacob Jordan, an Oxford native, is the newest addition to Tannehill, Carmean, & McKenzie. Prior to joining the firm, Jacob had the honor of serving as law clerk to Chief United States District Judge Michael P. Mills.


While in law school, Jacob was a student attorney and staff researcher with the Mississippi Innocence Project, in which he partnered with attorneys and other students to represent inmates throughout Mississippi with viable claims of innocence. Jacob drafted petitions for post conviction relief that resulted in the exoneration in Hinds County, Mississippi, of Matthew Norwood, who had previously served fourteen years in prison despite being factually also handled all aspects of inmate correspondence. In keeping with his commitment to representing the accused, he worked for the Mississippi Criminal Appeals Clinic, for which he was admitted to practice before the Mississippi Court of Appeals during law school. He obtained a certificate in Criminal Law with high honors at the University of Mississippi School of Law, where he received his Juris Doctor, cum laude, in 2012.


Jacob also volunteered at Mississippi Rural Legal Services during law school. During this time, he travelled throughout north Mississippi to draft wills for low-income elderly residents.


Jacob was also an active member of the Moot Court Board at the University of Mississippi Law School. While a student, Jacob competed on the American Bar Association Employment Law trial team in Dallas, Texas, and the American Association for Justice Trial Team in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Following law school, he served as a coach for the ABA Employment Trial Team.


Jacob studied and received both a B.M. and M.M. in classical guitar performance from Florida State University and the University of Texas at Austin, respectively. Prior to enrolling in law school, he performed internationally as a solo classical guitarist in Italy, France, England, Canada, Greece, and throughout the United States. Jacob cherished these opportunities to represent himself internationally, but entered law school to represent others in need.


Jacob is an avid reader and runner when he is not practicing law or guitar. He is a fervent Florida State fan.

Realistic and a bulldog mentality for the win!
Jacob stuck with me throughout the slow process of dealing with insurance companies dragging feet! He kept me well informed and made sure my expectations were realistic from the beginning- which made me so appreciative to have an open and honest attorney on my side!

Excellent, Empathetic Practice
Jacob handled a civil legal matter for me that could have had profound consequences for my professional and personal life. From the initial consultation, he approached my case with compassion and competence, treating the relatively minor matter with the same seriousness and thoughtfulness as any case on his desk. Due to his diligent efforts on my behalf, the case was dropped. Jacob got the legal result I needed and always treated me with professionalism and empathy.

Thank God for Jacob Jordan
Jacob Jordan was a beacon of hope to me at a time when my options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed impossible. Not only was he able to defend me from an unjust accusation, his calm and empathetic demeanor offered to myself and those I care about most. My son and I are eternally grateful for his service and I hereby recommend Mr. Jacob without reservations.

Happy Client
I used Jacob for a personal injury claim to negotiate between insurance companies. Jacob and his paralegal, Claire did a great job of communicating between me and the insurance companies. They were able to negotiate timely payment from the insurance companies saving me a lot of unnecessary worry and stress. In the end, I was still in a good financial situation. Thank you for a job well done!!!

Reviewing Jacob Jordan
When I meet with Jacob the first time, It was very clear to me that he was professional, courteous, and genuinely cared about my situation. My case was a criminal law case, Jacob explained to me every aspect of what to expect and how he would proceed further in detail that was easy for me to understand. He talked me through every possible outcome of the case. Jacob was able to get my charges dropped down to a lesser charge, and saying that I feel like he fought for my rights as hard as anyone could have ever thought possible. I would like to note some of the things that I really appreciated about Jacob and his etiquette. Jacob was always available for me to talk to even after hours sometimes. Never did I feel like Jacob did not have time for me or rushed to get off the phone. He was, simply stated, perfect!

Joyful and Amazing
Mr. Jacob Jordan and Mr. Tannehill took on a legal matter for me and they both exceeded my expectations. It was their constant dedication and drive to make sure my satisfaction was met. Having someone who barely knows you, care for you and your well-being like Mr. Jordan and Mr. Tannehill really allowed me to trust them wholeheartedly. Call it southern charm, but they are definitely great men. I can't thank them enough for the amount of support I received. Words cannot express how thankful I am for them. My situation was probably the toughest lol, but they fought through it and never gave up. Thanks for understanding, guiding, and giving me a voice. God has surely blessed you both. Thanks so much.
