  1. Car accident
    50%
    Victims who have been involved in a car accident are some of the most common cases that we work with here at Jenkins Law Firm. Despite the fact that a car is a dangerous machine that weighs thousands of pounds and can travel at extremely fast rates, people are not always as diligent and careful as they should be when behind the wheel. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, Jenkins Law Firm will help you get the compensation you deserve.

    15 years, 75 cases

  2. Personal injury
    50%
    Experienced attorney handling almost every type of personal injury: car accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle and pedestrian accidents, slip and falls, burns, paralysis, assault, toxic tort. and wrongful death. Collectively, our firm has almost 30 years of experience handling PI claims. We excel at finding obscure insurance policies and theories of liability in a given PI case, and negotiating reductions with creditors so the injured client does not end up with less than the attorney's fee.

    15 years, 50 cases

Raised in Georgia, I graduated from Emory University in 1999 with a Bachelor of Arts degree, and then Howard University School of Law in 2002 with a Juris Doctorate.  I was admitted to practice in both state and federal courts in Arizona in 2002.  I spent the first seven years of my practice as an associate at Quarles & Brady where I handled bankruptcy and creditors' rights, probate litigation, and corporate law, and then branched out of my own as a solo practitioner in 2009.

Finally, a no nonsense attorney, who listens
I contacted LaShawn Jenkins last month to handle a credit card lawsuit for my elderly mom who is 90 years old. First off, when I contacted his law office, I spoke with Nancy, who immediately told me not to worry that they would take care of everything as she listened to my mom‘s case. I received a good feeling from Nancy and once I spoke with LaShawn later on that day, I felt that my mom‘s case was in good hands. He listened to all the details, gave me my options, and immediately went to work on my case. There was a positive outcome, and that is thanks to LaShawn’s perseverance and skill set. I cannot say this about a lot of people, but I can definitely say this about LaShawn. Since the case has been dismissed, both my elderly mom and myself have finally gotten a good nights sleep. I highly recommend you contacting LaShawn Jenkins and his wonderful staff, Nancy. People that know me know that I don’t give out compliments or accolades, unless they are deserved. And no, I was not paid to say this lol. Linda

Awesome lawyer with experience that shows in the first 30 minutes!
Went in on a day that seemed like the worst of my life with an acccident, traffic violations, and possible lawsuit. Within 30 minutes Mr. Jenkins had almost resolved the entire situation (within his legal limits of course) and I am walking out with a weight off my shoulders knowing the next few days might be the last of the ordeal. Thank you for your time and work Mr. Jenkins! I appreciate the hard work and expertise and will definitely be recommending you to everyone I know!

Dismissed Case
Mr. Jenkins was an excellent lawyer that was willing to clear my name and vacate my judgment on a case that dealt with an extreme fine.Without having to attend court Mr. Jenkins consulted me and reassured that the case was dismissed.

Awesome Law Firm
I wanted to write a review for attorney LaShawn Jenkins because he was a great help to our family in consulting us in regards to our estate planning. I found him to be very understanding and Mr. Jenkins gave our family great advice in moving forward with the estate planning. I found his law firm to be easy to communicate with and that they were prompt in responding in our matter. I highly recommend the Jenkins Law firm and will not hesitate to use them in the future.

Came Highly Recommended
Attorney Lashawn is a very knowledgable lawyer, even outside of the areas he focuses on. He was very polite and caring towards my situation, not just out to gain my business but having my best interest in mind. He is a person you can actually trust. He's represented a few friends of mine and came highly recommended to speak to.

I Highly Recommend LaShawn Jenkins and The Jenkins Law Firm.
I Highly Recommend LaShawn Jenkins and The Jenkins Law Firm. LaShawn recently handled several complex legal matters for me and I was very satisfied with his services. Any questions I had, LaShawn answered in plain English that I could easily understand, he responded to my emails immediately. I found the firm’s fees and rates to be very fair, clear, and concise. The Jenkins Law Firm's Paralegals and office assistants are also excellent; they communicated with me every step of the way. I would not hesitate to recommend LaShawn to friends or relatives who needed legal assistance. I rest assured knowing that if a legal issue arises for me or my family, I will not need to find and attorney, LaShawn is on my side.

Got Desired Results
Getting to an equitable solution is my measurement of effectiveness. Mr Jenkins did that well. He was responsive to direct communications. The only area that kept him from a better rating was the general effectiveness of some of his staff in communicating. Apparently he made the necessary adjustments since our latest transactions were clearly and effectively communicated.

Came to me on a personal level about my reviews.
They took advantage of me and my grandmother. He came to me on a personal level about my reviews. He sent me a harsh text which at the time intimated me into taking down my reviews on Yelp and Avvo. My grandmother was having housing issues, but somehow he made our case about his reputation. We gave him $3,000 of our money and he gave us nothing, not even a receipt. This firm hurt my family deeply. (phoenix, az)

I do not recommend this attorney!
This attorney was willing to take on a consumer fraud case for us. Spent time on the phone and through emails with him. Had to tell him numerous times what the issues were as he seemed to have forgotten details. The last email received was him saying that if we wanted him to send a Demand letter and/or file suit, to let him know and he would send us a fee agreement. I requested the fee agreement 3 times over the course of a couple of weeks and also copied someone in his practice that he had copied on the emails to me and never heard from this attorney or firm again. He strung us along for over a month and then out of the blue, for no reason, never responded to our emails nor sent the fee agreement. We checked our Spam folders and nothing was in there. We were going to hire him after we received the fee agreement.

Thank you for your review. Our office will follow-up with you to ensure you receive a fee agreement since you did not receive it yet. We never string clients along and want to ensure that your case receives the attention it deserves and that we contribute to a successful outcome.
