Jeremy Wayne Sackett

About me

My practice focuses on criminal defense and personal injury law.  I spent 6 years as a prosecutor for the Madison County State's Attorney's office and bring that courtroom-intensive experience to my new practice.  I am blessed to have a capable and brilliant law partner in Michael Swanson, and I greatly enjoy the new challenges and rewards of the practice of law as a small firm.

  • Shawn Kevin Lintz

    Jeremy is is a highly-respected lawyer in our community, as many other attorneys would say. I've worked on certain matters with Jeremy before, and I have also been opposing counsel to him. In each instance, he was very diligent as to his client's case, as well as being very respectful to all parties. I would highly recommend Jeremy Sackett.

  • John Martin Delaney Jr.

    Jeremy and I were on opposite sides when he was a prosecutor, we even tried a Jury misdemeanor case with Judge Napp, and he was talented and fair. Since he has been in private practice we see each other and I am sure he is helping his clients in a meaningful way. I endorse this lawyer.
