For over six years I have dedicated my practice to criminal defense and criminal appeals. I enjoy protecting the rights of people not only who have been accused of crimes, but also those who have already been convicted.

When you are charged with a crime, there are always options available, no matter how hopeless it may seem. These options can include suppressing evidence or moving for  dismissal, negotiating a favorable plea agreement and sentence, or taking a case to trial. Even if you have already been convicted, whether by a guilty verdict or a plea, there may still be options available to improve the situation by filing a post-conviction motion or appeal.

A Real Fighter
I hired Atty. Fenton to represent me after I was charged with 2 crimes. He looked into every part of the case and explained to me all of my options. I decided to go to trial and he fought hard for me at the trial by making good arguments and asking smart questions of witnesses. The jury found me guilty of one but not guilty of the more serious charge. Even then Jay kept fighting and convinced the Judge to give me probation instead of sending me to prison. I walked away with a better sentence than the guy who plead out and tried to throw me under the bus for his own actions.

Great Lawyer
My family hired Jay to represent me in a recent case. He was really good and helped make my ultimate sentence as light and painless as possible.

Great Lawyer!
Jay was very helpful when I was charged with drunk driving. He answered all of my questions, was quick to return calls, and fought hard for me in court. He helped make the best of a bad situation, and helped me get the best result possible in my case. Would highly recommend!

Outstanding Result
I hired Attorney Fenton to represent me after I was charged with Hit and Run as a felony. Attorney Fenton was excellent and he was able to get the entire case reduced to a ticket by threatening to go to trial. I would highly recommend him.

Poor Communication
Mr. Fenton was hired by us 2 years ago, he was hard to contact after the first court date. He did not like to return phone calls in regards to the case and any changes occurring. He is a very knowledgeable lawyer but he lacked communication.
Response from Jaymes Fenton February 4, 2019
I strive to keep clients informed of the status of their cases. Because this is an anonymous review, it is impossible to comment on the particulars of this review, however, I am not aware of any case that originated 2 years ago in which I was hired and the client was not informed of any actual changes or updates in their case, or in which I became non-responsive after the initial appearance.
